  1. Classic Albums: Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline Turns 50

    Classic Albums: Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline Turns 50
    Bob Dylan is arguably one of the most celebrated artists in American history. His insightful lyrics and innovative arrangements appealed to the burgeoning civil rights movement of the 1960s with counterculture anthems like “Blowin’ in the Wind” (1963) and “The Times They Are a-Changin’” (1964). In 1965, Dylan caused controversy when he traded in his acoustic guitar for an electric. He went on to record a trilogy of rock records that changed the genre forever: Bringing It All Back Home (1965), Highway 61 Revisited (1965), and Blonde on Blonde (1966). Continue reading →

  7. Buyer's Guide: Microphone Preamps

    Buyer's Guide: Microphone Preamps
    A crucial link in the audio chain is the microphone preamplifier, aka the mic preamp or mic pre. The output level of a microphone is very low and requires amplification to bring it up to line level. That’s what a mic pre does. But a mic preamp can’t drive a pair of speakers; that’s the job of the main amplifier.A key part of the job for a mic pre is to keep input noise to a minimum and to amplify without distortion. Being the first amplification stage of the microphone signal, the mic preamp is essential to getting a good sound. Choose a poor one and you’ll be working harder to overcome its limitations. Choose a good one and processing your sound will get a lot easier. But what are the differences between average preamps and better ones? Let’s look at some of them. Continue reading →
