Global chip crisis with extreme never before encountered production and distribution challenges.
Apart from that, at the end of 2020 a fire destroyed AKM's production facilities for AD and DA converter chips. A resumption of production and thus availability of these components is not expected before 2022. Therefore, many manufacturers - like RME - are forced to either discontinue products based on AKM chips, or to use other chips for the foreseeable future.
Please have a wonderful Holiday and a GREAT and PROSPEROUS New Year! I hope 2022 will finally see the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and we can all get back to making music. Be safe!
Just released my first album (blues rock instrumental) — cheers for the mixing feedback over the year!
Super happy to announce that I’ve just released my first self-produced album - a collection of blues-rock instrumentals. I really appreciate the mixing feedback over the year!
Hoping you all agree it turned out ok!?
Check it out here:
Cheers and season’s greetings!
Wishing everyone around the world a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday's and the best New Year ever for 2022!
Here a playlist of some oldie Christmas songs that feel like home to me.
Will a microphone with a frequency response of e.g. 50-15000 Hz not capture anything at all above 15k?
Hello! Been a while since last time I posted here.
In all my years of recording I have never bothered to learn what the specified frequency response (FR) of a microphone really means. I have always thought it means that the mic wont capture anything outside of the FR range, but is that really true?
According to Shure the FR "defines the range of sound that a microphone can reproduce and how its output varies within that range".
Is it like if you'd put a low pass filter with a slope of say 96 dB/octave at 15k?
While searching for information on audio engineering, google highlighted this:
Although there are abundant audio engineer jobs in America, a large number of them are in the Northeast. Oregon is the best state in the country for audio engineer jobs, and Maine has the second-highest median salary in the country. Oregon is the best state for jobs for audio engineers, and Rhode Island is the worst.
First time working on the Spark Practice Amp. One came in with a damage input Jack. Nice Product, well thought out design, and even sounds decent. The owner originally requested adding balanced Lineout, but ended up not going for it. The headphone out seems to do the trick, all be it unbalanced.
I thought that this might interest those with home studios like myself. I recorded my fourth solo instrumental album over the past few years and decided to film as many of the sessions as I could. It enabled me to put together a “making of” video using a lot of the footage that I captured during the recordings.
Here's a link to a YT video about micing up a band using only Shure microphones. It was put together by the UK outlet PMT. Despite the myopic view and the whole presentation being OTT, there are some good hints and techniques shown.
Recording engineer and former Abbey Road manager Ken Townsend recalls how he invented the classic effect known as Artificial Double Tracking (ADT) while he was recording the Beatles in the 1960s.
