REAL Cool Monitoring

I don’t know about you, but one thing I HATE about doing live sessions (whether in a studio or via technology) is having to use headphones.  There really isn’t an effective way around it.  I don’t like how I sound in the headphones, I don’t like having something heavy on my head, and I DEFINITELY don’t like having both ears …

That REAL Cool Nostromo

Ok, so we are already neck deep in the holiday season, and one thing that is on many merry minds is giving and receiving gifts. The relatives want to know what you want, you are trying to figure out what to give, and chances are you aren’t contemplating ways to speed up your audio project workflow. But maybe you should!

REAL Cool Ways to Edit Audio

Editing, editing, always editing.  Any audition, any job, any…well audio really.  Quite often, we don’t send audio out (whether it be an audition or job) without doing some editing.  It really depends on the job and the situation, but we are always working in an environment.  Our environment can change our mood level of productivity.  This is why working in …
