Audio Engineering Tips

Here we will discuss Audio Engineering Tips

Last time in our audio engineering tips, we discussed the basics that you need for recording professionally. This time, we will go into depth about how you can achieve a professional home studio for under $2,500.00. We will be purchasing the following items for our studio:

  1. Microphone

  2. XLR (Microphone Cable)

  3. Mixer with XLR Input/Phantom power/USB

  4. Computer

  5. Soundcard

  6. Monitors

  7. Software

I. Microphone - There are basically 3 types of microphones. Dynamic, Condenser, and Ribbon microphones. Dynamic microphones require no phantom power, and are usually used for live performances as opposed to recording. There are exceptions, of course, depending on what you are recording. For this exercise we will be recording vocals, therefore we will be shopping for condenser microphones. You can use dynamic or ribbon microphones for recording vocals, however, condenser microphones are the most popular for recording vocals, and ribbon microphones are expensive.

In researching condenser mics, I have found the most bang for the buck is in Audio Technica. The AT3035 or the large diaphragm AT4033 is in our price range at around $399. The rack mount is needed, and is another $79.

II. XLR (Microphone Cable) - The microphone cable is called an XLR, and is affordable at around $5-$10.

III. Mixer with XLR Input/Phantom power/USB - Behringer mixers to me are the most affordable with the highest quality. M-Audio offers great mixers as well, but you will pay more due to the fact that Pro Tools software comes with every M-Audio mixer. An affordable mixer can cost between $399 and $599.

IV. Computer - This is the most expensive item in the chain. Desktop or Laptop will do. Just make sure you have a fast processor, and lots of memory!! Also, if you are going with Pro Tools for your software, then make sure your computer is up to Digidesign's specifications, or you will have problems. A fast desktop computer runs around $499 - $699 depending on the features.

V. Soundcard - Many people don't realize that the soundcard is very important to your sound. The soundcard usually has a/d converters, and the better this conversion, the better your sound. I say that to say this...don't skimp on the soundcard. Try to the get the best soundcard you can afford. A nice soundcard can run $399-$799.

VI. Monitors - Monitors help you monitor the playback. If you want to get a good mix, then you will want to spend extra on your monitors. A good set of monitors will run $299 - $899.

VII. Software - There are many recording software manufacturers. The biggest are Digidesign Pro Tools, Steinberg Nuendo, Steinberg Cakewalk, and Sonar. The choice is yours, however, even though I am certified in Pro Tools, I find myself using Nuendo much more because it is less DSP intensive than Pro Tools, and I can use many more plug ins per session in Nuendo than in Pro Tools. This depends on your processor, so you will have to make that decision. Nuendo is a little bit pricey at $1500.00, but you can get a basic Pro Tools system for between $299 and $599.

So there you have it. Let's calculate the pricing:

  1. Microphone $499.00

  2. XLR (Microphone Cable) $ 10.00

  3. Mixer $399.00

  4. Computer $499.00

  5. Soundcard $399.00

  6. Monitors $299.99

7. Software $299.99 Subtotal: $2,404.00

That's the hard part! Next time we will go into depth of putting our studio together. Now...Let's go shopping!

Music Engineering Tips

Here we will discuss Music Engineering Tips

With today's popularity of project studios and home studios, I thought that we should cover the bases of proper recording to help the audio hobbyist or home audio engineer to fine tune their audio engineering skills.   Here we will help you make your music studio or recording studio the best that it can possibly be. Hopefully you have at least the following items for your studio:

  1. Microphone

  2. XLR (Microphone Cable)

  3. Mixer with XLR Input/Phantom power/USB

  4. Computer

  5. Soundcard

  6. Monitors

  7. Software

This is the minimal setup needed to record. The 1st and most important item in the signal chain is the microphone.

 

 

 

 

 

I. Microphone

The microphone can be either a dynamic or a condenser microphone. The biggest difference between the 2 microphones is that a condenser microphone requires more power than a dynamic power, and therefore, you will need either a pre amp with phantom power or a mixer with built in phantom power. Most mixer nowadays come with built in phantom power, so if you have been wondering what phantom power is, it is just extra power to boost a condenser microphone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

II. Mixer

The mixer can be your best friend or worse enemy, depending on your needs. Make sure to get a mixer that can handle your input and output needs, and if you don't have a pre amp (which is not totally necessary), make sure you get a mixer with phantom power.

 

 

 

 

 

 

III. Computer

I won't go in depth about computers. We all know we need the fastest computer available to record audio. Mac or PC? It doesn't matter much nowadays...The times where PC was less reliable than Mac are gone. If you want cheap, then go with a PC.

IV. Soundcard

Another important item in your audio signal chain, the soundcard takes audio from the mixer and inputs it into your computer, either via firewire, USB or analog (1/8 input). As with the mixer, make sure you get a soundcard that can handle your input and output needs. Firewire is best because it is the fastest data transfer, however, USB is pretty standand nowadays, and is cheaper.

 

 

 

 

 

V. Monitors

Monitors (Speakers) are the way you listen to what has been recorded, and what you use to mix what has been recorded. To ensure a good mix, you might consider getting more expensive monitors, but a pair of regular Events have done me good for the past 7 years.

 

 

VI. Software

With so many software manufacturers out there, I won't go too deeply into software. Just make sure you have software that can handle what you intend to do. Make sure your settings are correct, and you may have adjust the delay latency to ensure proper monitoring.

These are the basics for a project recording studio. In our next series, we will discuss in depth how to put together a studio for under $1500.00.
