So I’ll briefly share some techniques that I personally use which will undoubtedly yield you some great results! These aren’t new or groundbreaking techniques by any means, but I’ve noticed that a shockingly large number of engineers do not get good captures when it comes to these instruments. So here we go; let’s start with two quality small diaphragm condenser microphones. And no, they do NOT need to be Read more

Music, travel focus of Austin-based reality show

Music and travel are two of my favorite things. Yours, too, I’m guessing. So “Sound Tracks,” a new reality show being produced by the Sessions, a local production company run by Lauren Bucherie and CJ Vinson, looks to be a winner. “The whole premise is to have audiences join us on the road while we explore different American cities in search of your next favorite band,” Bucherie told me. “The show appeals to anyone who likes music, history and culture.
