Ten years ago, only the highest-end laptops were powerful enough to take on the task of real-time audio processing, and even still, they paled in comparison to the desktop machines of the day.

So, let’s go over the ins and outs of buying a laptop for music production and pro...

Once upon a time, a decent plug-in for pro audio purposes might set you back more than a couple of hundred bucks (to say nothing of software bundles, which could easily run you into the thousands). But we’ve seen a drastic reduction in price for stellar software over the last few years—even from companies that used to charge in amounts heretofore measured in bodily appendages. Since you no longer...

Every day, someone needs some sound amplified. Maybe it’s just one mic for a fast-talking auctioneer, a mic and a laptop for that better-be-good wedding DJ, or multiple mics and instruments for a band hoping to get their music heard by the right people. In times like these, large-scale systems are absolute overkill, and that tiny Bluetooth speaker you carry around in your bag is no good, either....

Maybe it’s an open floor plan, and you’re lounging against exposed brick, headphones plugged into your laptop as hipsters amble throughout this soulless startup at all hours. Perhaps yours is a different work life: Crammed into a cubicle, you play audio from work-sanctioned streaming services as you entrench yourself in a routine your inner child would smack you...

It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter, the air crisper, and the foliage is starting to change. I’m talking about fall and my favorite holiday—Halloween! Ghosts, ghouls, monsters, skeletons, witches, and anything that goes bump in the night. As a kid, I loved going trick-or-treating with family and friends, and some of my favorite memories were of the houses in my neighborhood...

When people record live concerts and studio productions, multi-track recording is ideal. It grants you the power to fix and mix the performances in ways that would not be possible if only a stereo mix was recorded. However, multi-track creates a large amount of data in a hurry. Your recorder’s drive needs to be able to handle the burden imposed by writing and reading a multitude of large,...

Go ahead, admit it. You need a boompole, but you aren’t excited about it. If you work in ENG, EFP, television, or film production, life without a boompole is cursed. So, should you start small or go big? There’s no pleasure in purchasing a bigger boompole after retiring the one you outgrew too quickly.
