Adhering to proper Internet protocol, the world of online surfers flipped their tops and became obsessed with a new magnificent mystery, an audio clip of a single word. What word? Well, supposedly it was Laurel… or was it Yanny? Everyone from conspiracy theorists to arm-chair quarterbacks weighed in, but it was the audio experts who gleefully separated the chaos from the science. Each word we...

Production music libraries are catalogues of readily available music that allow producers and music supervisors to select pieces to be used to score their films, television shows, advertisements, and web content. Today’s libraries typically...

I have been in love with drum machines ever since I got my BOSS DR-770 Dr. Rhythm, almost 20 years ago.  Though it started as just a simple time keeper for my guitar-driven 4-track cassette song demos, the drum machine eventually became one of my main tools of musical expression. I was never a great drummer, but making beats on the DR-770 made me a better drummer, because it gave me a new...

Aside from tracking drums, playing or recording electric guitars has always been a game of compromises for the apartment musician and recording engineer. You need to juggle playing and recording in rooms that just don’t sound right, and ultimately you can never really crank your amp to reach that “sweet” spot without drawing the ire of your neighbors. So, what do we apartment-dwelling guitarists...

In the summer of 2015, I was given the opportunity to teach a bunch of kids how to write, perform, and ultimately produce their own songs. Some of the kids had never sung into a microphone. Others were pros on the writing side, but had no idea how to produce. There we all stood, together in a summer camp, all reaching toward one goal: A mixed, mastered album of their material by the end of the...

As we continue our very own B&H-flavored version of Oprah’s Favorite Things just in time for Valentine’s Day, one thing that comes screaming to mind is headphones. Everyone uses them, and they elicit passion, from casual listeners all the way to audiophiles. I fully admit I am something of a low-end Lothario, or dynamic-driver Don Juan, (depending on how you want to alliterate) when talking...

Long the standard bearer for delivering portable audio, the 3.5mm headphone jack had its plug pulled one final time, in Cupertino, on September 7, 2016, and reportedly met its fate with a steely courage you don’t often see outside of Apple designers. In its long and storied life, it survived countless audio formats, from vinyl to 8-tracks, cassette tapes, and CDs. In recent years, it had even...

Thursday, January 21001: Head West Old Man 07:31 EST, Newark Liberty International Airport An early-AM Uber has brought me to gate C104 at sprawling Newark Liberty International airport, waiting on a 9:03 AM flight into LAX to attend the NAMM 2016 show to schmooze, network, report back, and provide input to the company’s buying staff. Always fun flying on someone else’s dime. It’s been well over...

On rare occasions, a specific instrument manufacturer becomes so iconic that their name becomes synonymous with the instrument itself. Guitars have the Gibson Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster, organs have Hammond, and synthesizers have Moog. While there is an ever-growing world of analog and digital synths, alongside...

Breaking into a crowded field is never an easy task and, in the pro audio world where so much market space is taken up by a select few manufacturers, that challenge is even more palpable. A little more than 30 years ago, Audix Microphones was started with a simple vision in mind: to create products that contribute to the advancement of pro audio technology.

One idea that resonates for me, having worked as a Sound Mixer for many years, is that there is no one way to do anything. Putting a lavalier microphone on talent is a skill that requires as many “solutions” as you can possibly devise. The person with the largest number of options and...

When someone describes themselves as an audiophile, it is easy to immediately imagine an elaborate home setup, with expensive speakers, pricey amps and cables, audio receivers, and turntables. However, listening habits change over time, and for those with long daily commutes to school or work, more and more time spent listening to music is spent while on the go. Thankfully, there are a number of...
