Quote of the Day

“One of the things I am very aware of is how you can sometimes be listening to a record and think ‘Oh, there’s that shakuhachi from the Emulator II, and there’s that horn sample from the Akai....’”- Jerry Harrison

Outfitting and setting up a studio is a frightening prospect. There are so many things to consider—not just the obvious issues like choosing a mixer or buying a computer, but also many less obvious but equally critical issues. Like making sure your health isn’t jeapordized. Or that you’re actually hearing what matters. Or even, heaven forbid, that your studio isn’t going to be eaten by bugs while you sleep. (No, really!)

In the August Recording, we look at the easy and the not-so-easy in helping you maximize your studio’s potential with articles on audio issues like reducing noise, tuning your room, and getting a good monitoring setup... and important but less-discussed matters like cabling, ergonomics, client relations, moving to suit modern buying trends among studio clients... and yes, dealing with termites! We also have a dozen cool reviews, including a look at two different sets of monitors from KRK, TASCAM’s newest Portastudio, and two laptop PCs from ADK Pro Audio that set the bar for what an audio computer should be.

All this plus our monthly columns, Song Production in Pro Tools with Mark Hornsby, Readers’ Tapes with Marty Peters, and much more. Whether you work with live drums, percussion, or loops, the July Recording will give you the tools you need to do it right!
