  • How To Make A Recording/Mixing Studio Sound Like A Million Dollar Room - Music Connection Magazine
    on in the room There is direct sound coming from your monitors or speakers to your ears Direct sound combines with reflected sound which causes interference at the listening position known as comb filtering As a result the listener is not able to accurately hear what s coming out of the speakers Early Reflections One of the first areas recommended to treat are the early first reflection points the first points on your sidewalls floor and ceiling where reflections bounce off and come back to the listening position Luckily reflection points are easy to treat with a few acoustic panels in the right spots Once treatments are applied sound is absorbed when it hits the first reflection points resulting in the listener YOU now hearing the direct sound Read More Gear Review GIK Acoustics 4A Alpha Panel Diffusor Absorber Bass Issues Corners and Back Walls There are many different types of low frequency bass problems in rooms because low frequency pressure builds up wherever there is a boundary Each room dimension has two boundaries which are generally parallel to each other It is actually intuitive if you think about it If you have pressure building along each wall and traveling to the outside ends it stands to reason that it will pool in the corners since you re now at two boundaries All low frequency modes end in corners which makes corners the ideal place for absorption Typically it is recommended to treat at least two corners and more corners if possible with bass traps positioned floor to ceiling The bottom line is fill the corners if you can If you can t don t let that stop you from straddling the corners with panels 4 thick or thicker Not all low frequency related problems can be solved purely by treating corners Some of the deepest valleys and highest peaks come off of an untreated back wall Centering 5 7 thick panels on the longest dimension of the room helps reduce the bass reflections off the rear wall which reduces the intensity of those reflections and thus the intensity of any cancellations caused by these reflections Late Reflections Sidewalls Reverberation and flutter echo are the easiest problems to identify in any room and are especially prevalent in rooms with a lot of empty wall spaces and hard surfaces Treating both issues however can be simple Reverberation can simply be controlled by using appropriate acoustic panels more or less evenly spaced throughout the room to get general dampening Reverberation however can also be dealt with by diffusion which will help turn the excess decay into a more controlled ambiance instead of removing the sound energy Flutter echo specifically happens between any two flat parallel walls and is usually found in the upper half of most rooms since the sound isn t broken up by desks chairs amps etc up there and can be treated using either absorption or diffusion As was mentioned with reverberation using diffusion is sometimes preferable if control

  • Producer Deals: Everything an Artist Needs To Know - Music Connection Magazine
    Spec Agreement Another scenario for artists at the beginning of their careers is the on spec deal The on spec deal is a situation in which the artist makes contact with a local producer studio owner perhaps one who is a friend fan or close relative of the band and arranges to record at no cost under the terms of an informal agreement Such an agreement may state that if the band gets a recording agreement they will pay the producer a predetermined flat fee for services rendered and consider him or her as a candidate to record the final product for the label If the artist never gets signed to a recording agreement the artist never owes the producer any money Another agreement could state that the artist gives up ownership in the master recordings or shares in certain songs for a specific term This way when the artist makes money down the line the record producer also gets paid Warning just be sure to understand the terms of any agreement before signing and to speak with an attorney or consultant if unsure about anything The Do It Yourself Work For Hire Approach Moving on when a young artist is resourceful enough or lucky enough to have the funds necessary to pay a producer at their full going rate their involvement with a producer might exist under a do it yourself work made for hire approach In this scenario the artist makes contact with the producer studio owner via referrals from other local indie artists or adverts in local music magazines After discussing recording philosophies listening to recorded tracks and examining the facilities the artist hires the producer for a flat fee to record tracks and even to mix and master the recording Just be clear that the producer is hired by you via a contract that explicitly states that he or she is to perform a job for a fee and that he or she does not retain any rights in the sound recording nor own any shares in your compositions Speak with an attorney if needed Okay The Production Company Deal Moving on in our discussion about when a producer s involvement may begin let s take a look at production deals These situations exist when talented young artists can show that they have the potential to be a worthy business investment i e they have exceptional looks songwriting or performing skills and a unique sound In a typical production company deal the production company discovers grooms and records the artist and then enters into a recording agreement with a label on the artist s behalf The production company receives a royalty rate for sales from the label which it typically splits with the artist 50 50 The production company also typically receives a recording advance and if anything is left over after it covers its recording expenses it will typically be split 50 50 as well The Record Label Deal Finally when artists can prove that

  • Singers! How to Cope with 3 Key Problem Areas... - Music Connection Magazine
    vaporizer in your bedroom Make sure to clean it out every few days with a few tablespoons of white vinegar and water When touring avoid sleeping next to or under ceiling or wall fans In cold weather wrap your neck with a warm scarf and pull it up over your nose Breathing with your nose covered will capture the moisture of your breath and hydrate the air you inhale Drink lots of water preferably room temperature rather than chilled Steam your voice You can accomplish this by taking a hot steamy shower Inhale through your mouth and give your voice a steam treatment Do not drink alcohol within 24 hours of singing It acts as an irritant to your vocal folds and dehydrates your body which wastes precious moisture to attempt to wash it out In addition alcohol causes increased production of mucous because it dilates the blood capillaries Behaviors that injure your voice Signs Is something you re doing blocking your ability to make artistic and technical choices that support freedom of expression stamina and the tonal results you desire Power comes from resonance The voice generates sound through vibrations that then interact within the inner space of the throat mouth head chest and back You may have habits that hinder your resonance and the following practices may help you break them What to Do You may be using the wrong vocal exercises during practice or haven t yet developed your technique to a point where you can sing with injury free power Establish a daily regimen that includes warm ups and cool downs If you re a pro consider a new system of exercises the old ones may not be serving your needs anymore Relax your stomach muscles as you sing and learn to breathe into your back Choose a microphone that matches your vocal personality and performance needs This may require testing a number of mics at the local music store to find the tonal support needed to enable you to relax as much as possible while singing Don t rehearse or perform if you have a respiratory infection that is in your larynx voice box or lungs Sometimes vocal recovery from a lower respiratory infection can take some time So once the infection is gone use gentle vocal warm up exercises to help facilitate recovery If you have an infection in your upper throat or sinuses you may still be able to sing rather than canceling a performance Though a sinus infection can make the back wall of your throat pharynx painful when swallowing or singing it will not affect your voice as long as the infection isn t simultaneously in your larynx Be careful to choose physical exercises at the gym that won t foster muscular tension around the neck and shoulder muscles When rehearsing with a band make sure to provide yourself with a good monitor Test the monitor s placement to find a position that will make it easy to hear your voice
