Until recently, electronic viewfinders (EVFs) weren’t taken seriously, especially in professional photography circles. Even though they have always offered some clear advantages over optical viewfinders (OVFs), like WYSIWYG exposure preview, for instance, early EVFs were also characterized by pixelated and laggy image quality that was a turnoff to many shooters. This was one reason, among others...

Recording a guitar amplifier is easy, but recording one well can be quite tricky. In addition to the guitar and the amp, the acoustics of your recording space play a big role, as do mic placement and the microphone itself. This article is intended to be a quick primer to point you in the right direction when buying a microphone to record your guitar amp. It is not intended to be an all-...

When I used to hear people talk about recording vocals in their bedroom, the first thing that would enter my mind is the annoying sound of every single noise in the house along with the voice in the recorded audio. Sure, you can install some acoustic treatment panels and use a pop screen, but getting that supertight, vocal booth sound in your bedroom is pretty tough without actually building a...

Metering for optimal exposure is crucial in all forms of photography, but especially so for landscape and cityscape applications. When you’re shooting outside during the day, you’ve got to deal with the sun and the sky, which of course can be extremely bright, and you may also have very dark shadows relative to the sky within the same frame. This can create an extremely wide dynamic range that...

What’s a Mixer Anyway? In simple terms, a mixer allows you to blend or “mix” multiple audio signals together from different sources, such as microphones, guitars, and keyboards, and you can polish each...

When I set out to redesign my home studio from scratch, I knew I wanted to build something completely different than my old-school Black Lion Audio Mod Digidesign 002 based setup. My music production workflow had changed quite a bit from when I bought the 002, having evolved from a more hardware-based process to...

The other day, a musician friend sent me a new version of a track we have been working on together so I could check out a new piano part that he added. I complained that it was taking several minutes to download the track to my phone, and then realized he had sent me an 80MB WAV file in lieu of the fairly customary, high-quality MP3 file that is normally sent between the producers and musicians I...

If you’re familiar with the wired noise-canceling earbud designs that began popping up on the market several years ago, you’re sure to recall the fairly large, in-line boxes that hung on the cabling of most models. This rather cumbersome design characteristic was necessary to house the batteries and circuitry behind the active noise canceling. But lately, we have seen manufacturers begin to pack...

As I listen to podcasting develop as an artform, I am constantly reminded that the possibilities in this medium truly are endless. Gear has gotten smaller and more portable, and podcasters of all kinds are now able to take their shows on the road.

Ten minutes ago, you were in your home studio with an incredible-sounding mix, and now you’re in the car listening to the same track, only it sounds like an atrocious flabby mess.

Mixing in headphones is a somewhat controversial topic in the pro audio world. Some producers and engineers mix primarily in headphones (often out of necessity) and others denounce the practice as entirely useless, preferring to work only on studio monitors. But I think that everyone can agree that a sound mix, whether it...

Have you ever put on your favorite pair of earbuds and thought they sounded muffled? Not quite as crisp as you remember them sounding? If so, the fix may be as easy as giving your buds a deep cleaning. Let's face it—most of us don’t clean our earbuds very often, even though we wear them inside our ears, for crying out loud. On top of it being a bad health habit (dirty earbuds have been found to...
