By Robert Caprio / September 16, 2015

BY ROBERT “VOiD” CAPRIO I’m often asked how I transition so easily from mixing at FOH, MON and the in the studio. Well, for me, it’s not that hard at all because I follow my mantra of “Keep It Simple, Stupid!” and simply try to make it sound good no matter where I am or […]

NAB: Console Wars v 2.0

By Bill Evans / April 22, 2015

It’s the quick version but this is v2. Not only are we putting this on a brand spankin’ new version of the SPL site but we have added our own video for Avid and DiGiCo and stripped out the “official” ones. One second thought, maybe we’ll keep the officials and just add the ones we […]

The Politics of Live Sound Mixing and the Sacrificial Lamb

By Pooch / April 8, 2015

OH yes, the politics.  The dirty little secret of live sound mixing.  I believe that, on any given day, 50% of our job is politics and 50% of our job is actually mixing.   The problem is that MOST times this is out of wack, one way or another. Somtimes our job is 90% politics […]

Loud Monitors–Are you Responsible if Your Artist Goes Deaf?

By Robert Caprio / April 6, 2015

After mixing monitors for a well known female artist last night I got to wondering: who is ultimately responsible for an artist’s hearing, if not the artist themself? From my point of view it seems logical to think that the next person besides the artist themselves bears that burden, and in a typical concert environment […]

Lead Vocal Compression

By Ace Baker / November 14, 2014

Lead Vocal Compression   Let’s face it folks, the lead vocal is the most important part of a live performance, at least as far a pop, rock, R&B, hip-hop or any show with a lead vocalist show goes. Granted if you’re mixing Yo Yo Ma then obviously the cello becomes your lead instrument but for […]

Those Gigs That Make them All Worthwhile.

By Ace Baker / January 30, 2014

I’m pretty sure I’d be right on point if I were to say that just about all of us in the music industry are in it because of the passion we have for music. I know it’s not always about the money, it certainly isn’t for me. If it was all about the money for […]
