Enjoying the Movie Music? You Might Have NYC's Grandest Ballroom to Thank
As movie audiences settle in to enjoy Ben Stiller's new movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, it's a sure bet that the film's score will add to the drama on screen. What most audiences might not appreciate is the dramatic history of the space where that score was recorded: Manhattan Center's Grand Ballroom. Along with the Hammerstein Ballroom, the Grand Ballroom is part of the Manhattan Center, and it is Manhattan Center Productions that operates New York City's most advanced independent recording studios and television production facilities.

PluralEyes - Sound Synching Software from Singular Software
PluralEyes - Sound Synching Software from Singular Software
Singular Software has a range of sound synching software available. PluralEyes is the flagship. It works specifically with particular nominated software so you must obtain the one that suits your software. PluralEyes will only play with Green Valley Edius, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, Apple's Final Cut Pro and Avid's Media composer. For each of these editing program, Singular Software provides a specific set in instructions which, at first to me at least, sounded a bit arcane, but in fact turned out to be easy to follow. The end result is an additional sequence inserted into to your project with the sounds all lined up. Read More
Quick Tip:
What Is Audio Mastering?
What Is Audio Mastering?
Mastering is the all-important last step in the song/album creation process, and unfortunately one that can often be overlooked. Put plainly, your music will never be at a professional level if it is not mastered properly. This is the stage where dull, listless songs come to brilliant life as one polished, "larger than life" EP or album. They say you need an outside pair of ears on-board for this stage, and preferably one with hundreds (if not thousands) of projects behind them. Even the best mastering engineers in the world send their own material off to another mastering specialist for processing. Read More

The RØDE NTG-3 External Microphone

TV commercials drive me nuts!
TV commercials drive me nuts!
TV commercials drive me nuts! Especially those shown in the country, where it is assumed every single person who is watching is a "down-on-the-farm-country-boy" (or lassie). As such, many ads have the poor farmer doing something stupid (using string to tie a gate as against the "new gate locker magico!", or is buying new boots every other day - "Step by step, brick by brick, you and your boots built this country".
