Monitor Speakers, And Setting Up A Small Studio Control Room Or Edit Suite

February 11th, 2013

Studio Monitoring

I will attempt in this article to give some ideas to help in the set up of a small recording studio control room, or a video editing suite where audio needs to be monitored. I will try to cover just some pretty basic advice here. It’s not intended to be a comprehensive guide, nor one designed to advise those with large professional studio control rooms, or surround sound Dolby mixing studios. It’s more aimed at the home or project studio, or small video production suite.

Stereo Micing Techniques (Part 1)

July 1st, 2012

Stereo micing

Using stereo microphone recording techniques can be fun and very effective when used in the right context. They can also produce headaches and nightmares when it comes to mixing down the tracks later if setup has not been done properly. Taking time to position microphones appropriately in order to capture the source audio in a balanced and clear way is well worth the effort. Over the course of the next two articles I want to cover the basics of different stereo recording techniques. Which one you should choose in any given situation is based largely on what microphones you have available, the environment you are recording in, and the desired resulting sound. The stereo micing setups we will cover in this first article (part 1) are spaced pair, coincident pair (X-Y) and near coincident pair (ORTF, NOS, DIN).

Choosing And Using Music For Film And Video

April 19th, 2012

guitar and keys

If you want your video or movie to be successful, it needs to have something to set it apart from the others in competition to it, and therefore attract viewers. Using well chosen music can certainly be of assistance in attaining this goal. Ask yourself “what is it about your particular video that will attract people to start watching it, and then ultimately watch it through to it’s completion without getting bored?” You don’t want potential viewers flicking to the next video half way through watching yours! Having a good sound track can really help to capture peoples’ attention and their imagination. Most people love music, and often half the pleasurable experience of watching a video is in the hearing of the sound.

Field Recording Of Birds, Wildlife and Nature Sounds

Field Recording Kit

In this brief tutorial I would like to introduce you to the concept of recording nature and wildlife sounds. This includes capturing the sounds of individual birds and animals, as well as general stereo natural ambiences. I aim to give an introduction to the type of equipment you willl need in order to get started in this field. In no way do I pretend that this will be a comprehensive article covering all angles on the subject, but it should give you some basic guidelines to get you started.
