Headphones by on Sun, 04 Jan 2015 00:09:59 +0000:
 So, I've been asked about headphones recently by a lot of friends.  So much so, that I thought I'd write down a few words, more regarding what you should not buy, rather than what you should.  This is simply due to the enormous amount of generally good, and wildly varying headphones out there.

As most of you know, I'm an audio engineer, and as such, I analyze music most of all days.  To you, this could mean that I'm automatically an audio snob, and anything I say won't mean much to a normal person listening to music for enjoyment.  I don't think this is true.  If you care at all about audio quality, please consider this advice.

For the past few years, a brand of headphone has become wildly popular.  I can assure you, it is not popular because it sounds good.  It's popular because it's marketed a lot, and it's marketed very well.

If you are considering a new pair of headphones, and you are interested in audio quality.  Please shop around before you decide to buy a pair of headphones based on popularity.  For the price, a trip to your local Best Buy, and a few moments of comparison will decide for you.

Headphones I use in the studio are the Grado SR-225, and the AKG Q-701.  I also enjoy listening to my Sennheiser HD-650's from time to time.  These will probably cost more than you're willing to spend, but there are many headphone websites out there which can provide a few great options at a much lower price.

If you have any other questions on what not to buy, google can provide some help.
Christmas Time! by on Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:19:00 +0000:
 So, today I released what has proved to be the best recording of any choir I've ever produced.  It was the UVU Institute's Latter-day Celebration Choir.  The song is "Baby Boy", one I've never heard before.

It can be heard by clicking here. (feel free to download, listen, and share as much as you like)

This was my foray into the world of remote recording, and I've got to say that the options engineers have with various devices to record remotely are plentiful.  I chose to acquire the Zoom H5 to accomplish this task, along with some boom stands that can extend up to 16 feet high.

For those interested in techinical details, I ended up using a coincident-pair stereo configuration of my AT 4041 SDC mics, where the mics were placed about 2 feet above the heads of the lowest row (which resulted in them being about 4 feet below the highest row.  The choir comprised 80 people, with 6 rows of singers, and about 6 feet in front of the front row)  The H5's default stereo pair were put about 2 feet in front of the upright piano.

Anyway...  Originally I thought it would be an easy task to get it to sound as good as I thought it should, but it ended up taking 2 hours to mix, and I used tools I normally wouldn't have to use.

All in all, when the clients came in to record the solos, and hear the final product, smiles all around told me I had done the job right.  It sounds cheesy, but it's true.  The satisfaction I get from giving my clients a product that exceeds their expectations is the end goal of every project of Art City Sound.  Making musicians happy with their creations...  There's just something about it that I crave.

Anyway...  Another smaller choir-based project I worked on was Jodi Lee Nicholes' "O Holy Night", produced by Jhonny K.  Click here to see the video

This project ended up becoming much more than I originally thought, and ended up getting time on the radio.

Though the years, I've loved the projects which come in at Christmas time.  I usually end up doing a dozen recordings or so, as Christmas presents which makes sense.  These recordings become a journal of sorts to your loved ones.  Seeing and hearing people pour their souls into these projects, and me being able to help them realize it all just makes me smile.  I love it.

Anyway...  Merry Christmas to you all!  May the light and love of Christ descend onto each of your hearts, for He truly loves you.

Merry Christmas.
Sacred Sounds Acoustics... by on Sat, 04 Oct 2014 17:30:20 +0000:
 So, a few days ago, a friend of the studio called up and asked if I would help him out with a project.  As he described the project, I grew more and more interested.

The project is called "Sacred Sounds: Cathedrals of Europe"

The gist of it, is that a group of researchers are going to be travelling around Europe studying the various acoustics of cathedrals in Europe, and all over the world.  They wanted to come to the studio and record a group of vocalists singing a traditional-based choral piece which was something that could easily be heard coming out of any cathedral anywhere.  It was a very simple, short, harmonious piece.

Having studied acoustics in order to build a better studio myself,  I'm very interested in acoustics, and the thought of studying the acoustics of various well-known cathedrals all over Europe was certainly cool.

When we were done recording the piece, they talked about what they were planning on doing, and one of my most prevalent thoughts was, "Man, I wish I was going with them."

Best wishes, you guys!

Live Room Upgrade by on Wed, 10 Sep 2014 10:03:51 +0000:
Soon after I began recording audio, I had a feeling I would be in the pursuit of an unattainable goal.  Finding that "perfect" recording space, or even creating that "perfect" recording would be difficult, if not entirely impossible.

10 years after I began, I was able to pour my heart and soul into a new recording space, and I was determined to get it as close to perfect as I was able.

Well, after being here for a year, I decided to build a large diffuser, and see what that did to the sound.


Truth be told, it did brighten the sound a little, but it didn't have as much of an effect as I was expecting, but it definitely was positive, so I decided to keep it.

A few months later, I decided to make another change.  This time, it would be in the form of a 36 sq-ft absorptive panel hung from the ceiling.


After I built and installed the panel, I didn't even need to play an instrument to tell the difference.  The following morning, I walked into the room, and my footsteps sounded different.  It was kind of un-nerving to tell the truth. 

After I recorded my drum kit the first time, I didn't know what to think.  My "live" room was now much more sonically controlled.  The natural live reverb that used to permeate was now much more subtle, as if it had been put in a cage and told to calm down.

That said, the panel brought my snare drum more to life and my kick drum seems like a different drum entirely.  The definition of how the kick drum now sounds, is like the difference between seeing the sky while underwater, and seeing it un-filtered.  The difference in clarity really is amazing. 

So, while I seem to have lost a natural reverb that I came to enjoy, I have gained clarity I didn't know I was missing.

I've been using the live room with the panel now for a couple months, and people seem to really like the increased clarity, so I think I'll keep it up.

Ever in the pursuit of the perfect recording space, I think I already know what I'm going to do next... *evil grin*

Tribute to Matt Harker by on Mon, 09 Jun 2014 11:47:05 +0000:
A week ago, an acquaintance of mine from my highschool days, Matt Harker, was hit and killed while biking to work.  A day later, a friend contacted me and wondered if he could use the studio to produce a song in Matt's memory.  Although I didn't know Matt very well, I knew him well enough to know he was the type of person who did his best to spread as much goodwill as he could to whoever he could, as often as he could.  He left a wife and 3 young boys.

"Of course", I said.  "It would be an honor to help out with the production of anything in honor of Matt."

So, over the course of 3 days, Ryan Kirkpatrick, Scott Francis, and I went to work on producing a song that hopefully would be worthy of Matt's memory.

The song is called "The Choice", and can be listened to, or purchased, at this link.  As all proceeds from the creation of, and sale of this song is going into a trust-fund for Matt's 3 sons, I recommend purchasing the song, and sharing it, if you are so inclined.



In other news, SLUG magazine took some time to review Tiny Boats' debut album, which was released in February, and for some reason or another, decided to give it a "national" review, as opposed to a "local" review.  As the review had nothing but good words for the album, I'm guessing that's a good thing.

To read review, click here.

Thanks for reading, and hopefully I'll blog again before July. :)
