  1. Studio Spotlight: Radio Galactic

    Studio Spotlight: Radio Galactic
    At Radio Galactic, his North Chicago studio, John Buehler does a variety of things: film scoring, music projects and immersive sound for apps including his own holographic audio app Naturespace, which provides vividly detailed high-res 3D recordings of natural spaces. There is a common thread that runs through all the work that Radio Galactic does – emotion and well-being. The emotional impact that sound has on the listener (and the creator of the sound) is fundamental to Buehler’s work. Recently, we had the pleasure of chatting with Buehler about his approach to recording nature, what it was like working with Vintage King Audio Consultant James Good while building out his studio, the future of immersive audio and his philosophy on audio production.  Continue reading →

  4. Buyer's Guide: Flock Audio Patchbays

    Buyer's Guide: Flock Audio Patchbays
    Since hitting the market in 2017, Flock Audio’s Patch has brought new innovation to the world of patchbays. The brand's unique software and hardware solutions allow for digital control over your patchbay without ever converting your analog signal to digital. No converters, no latency, no mess, no stress. Flock Audio now offers three different hardware patchbays to meet the needs of studios of all size. When paired with the the Patch App, engineers will save time when preparing to track or mix and ensure a smooth session without the need for constant trips to the patchbay. Let’s take a look at how Flock Audio does this. The Role Of Traditional Patchbays Vs. Flock Audio Patch Units In the traditional studio environment, the patchbay is your access hub for routing in and out of various equipment. This makes it so that users don’t have to manually plug in and out of a unit that is generally already stationed within a rack. Users set up a patchbay by connecting cabling from hardware to points on the back of the patchbay, and then utilize small patch cables to make routing decisions on the front. Continue reading →

  10. Why Do Studios Use Multiple Sets Of Monitors?

    Why Do Studios Use Multiple Sets Of Monitors?
    When it comes to studio gear, engineers love experimenting with all kinds of microphones, mic pres, compressors, EQs and whatnot. The more flavors, the better. In terms of studio monitors, pro audio manufacturers strive to keep their designs sounding authentic as possible. This leads us to a common inquiry, “Why do I see so many pictures of studios with multiple sets of monitors? Doesn’t the engineer just pick the right set of monitors that works for them and do their thing?” Well, yes and no… First and foremost, yes, you do want to pick the right set of monitors that works for you. In a sense, speakers are a compass. We choose a set of speakers that we enjoy listening to and we learn them. How does our favorite music sound on them? How does the track you worked on last week sound? Last month? Last year? How do they sound when you turn them up vs. listening to them at a lower level? They become a window to how we hear what we’re working on vs. the rest of the world. Everyone has different opinions and preferences, but at the end of the day, you are the one that is going to spend countless hours in front of the speakers, so you want to pick something that you enjoy working on.
