Re: Fixing harsh harmonics from female vocalists

Thanks for the replies and I will probably not use that mic at the studio again but what can I do about it? It's the only part of the song that does this. There is something you can do about it, but it's usually quite finicky, whichever way you do it. Basically, the problem is usually sporadic uppe...

Re: 'The Mix Review' changes...

Mike spill the beanz "Massive props to producer Fabrizio Ferraguzzo here – and I’m hoping his monitor controller is his secret sauce, as he appears to be using the same one as me…" :think: Hah! It's the SPL 2381. Been using it for more than 15 years. Had it serviced a few years back and i...

Re: Mike Senior's Comment About The Sonible Smart EQ?

I'm on Mike Senior's Cambridge MT mailing list. There's a "P.S." at the end of the latest email that says "Whatever you do, though, don't buy their [Sonible's] Smart EQ, which is an exercise in pointlessness..." Quite a strong opinion! As someone thinking of getting this EQ I'm ...

Re: Using loudspeakers upside down?

The point about heat sinking I think is nothing to worry about? There cannot be any active monitors around that get so hot that flipping them over would impreril them? Certainly in reading just about every speaker review since Feb 2005 I cannot recall anyone saying "this bugger runs hot tho'bu...

Using loudspeakers upside down?

Hi all, Just had an interesting question from one of my site patrons, and figured it was worth getting a bit of outside input on it: is there any reason not to use your monitor speakers upside down? The thinking here is that it's sometimes a means of putting the tweeter more at ear height. Now, in p...

Re: Al Schmitt microphone technique.

sound bites wrote:No, they are U67s. Al never used a U87, he really didn’t like it.

Well, to be strictly accurate, he has used 87s, although he didn't like to admit it. You can see Steve Genewick ribbing him about it on one of the Mix With The Masters videos, which is quite amusing... :)

Re: The Mix Review -- Happy 10th Birthday!

Dear Mike do Penny Lane Hah! Yes, I'm sure that would be a good track to do, but given that I currently do only one classic track per month, it feels a bit unfair to do another Beatles track (I did 'Yesterday' quite early on) when I still haven't covered so many other iconic tracks by other artists...

The Mix Review -- Happy 10th Birthday!

https://pix.cambridge-mt.com/TMR10thLogo.png It's a big occasion for me this month, because The Mix Review is now officially 10 years old! What started as a bit of a leftfield article idea in the pages of SOS back in April 2011 has since grown into an improbably large archive of more than 500 criti...

Re: what is your experience with bass mixing?

That’s a great article! Thanks! :) And if you want some practice with bass mixing, you might also want to check out this page I’ve put together with some recommended multitracks for that. It's an expanded and updated version of the list that went with that original article, and for each project I'v...
