Studio Stories: Sound Techniques

For a decade to come, this bijou ex–dairy would produce some of the finest British recordings of the era. If you're a fan of British '60s and '70s music, particularly psychedelic folk and folk–rock, you'll no doubt be familiar with a little tagline gracing the liner notes of some of your favourite records: "Recorded at Sound Techniques, Chelsea".

Capturing Great-Sounding Drums Using Only Four Tracks. Here’s a simple, common-sense method to record a great-sounding drum kit on only four tracks.

Capturing Great-Sounding Drums Using Only Four Tracks

I’ve always been a follower of the less-is-more philosophy, and this kit technique goes all the way back to my analog 4-/8-/12-track days when track economy was a must. There have, of course, been volumes dedicated to recording “trap kits,” from only two microphones to two mics on each drum! I think the concept of a drum kit as a group of separate instruments is off-base. A drum kit is an ensemble and has a “group sound.” BBC Arts - BBC Arts - The reel thing: Revisiting analogue tape in the digital age. Moby: 20 Years of Play - Episode 1 - BBC Sounds.

Top Five Reasons Mic Preamps Matter - ProSoundWeb. Few topics stir up more debate than microphone preamplifiers. With dozens, if not hundreds of different brands, models, shapes, sizes, variations, and configurations to choose from, it’s no wonder mic preamps are among the most misunderstood pieces of the audio signal chain. Even low-cost interfaces offer built-in mic preamps, some of which sound pretty decent. So why would anyone want to spend money on an external preamp, let alone several? Here are the top five reasons mic preamps matter. Visits Manley Laboratories.
