The ZOOM Alternative - and its soooo much better show art The ZOOM Alternative - and its soooo much better

The Pro Audio Suite

As an Audio Engineer, I'm constantly puzzled as to why ZOOM has any place in the recording process. Crap sound, no chance of ever syncing pictures with audio, and to top it off they expect me to pay a premium for a lousy service...  Well, Robbo has found an alternative, that delivers all the above and more... A big shout out to our sponsors, Austrian Audio and Tri Booth. Both these companies are providers of QUALITY Audio Gear (we wouldn't partner with them unless they were), so please, if you're in the market for some new kit, do us a solid and check out their...

Having had vast experience with both, the guys took a deep dive into the why's and wherefore's of both... A big shout out to our sponsors, Austrian Audio and Tri Booth.

Source Connect on a 5G/4G Connection show art Source Connect on a 5G/4G Connection

The Pro Audio Suite

Whilst it's true you can't use source connect on your 4 or 5G device, it seems you CAN still use a hotspot to use the same networks for your source connect session. When we spoke with Richie from Studious the other week about APs new studio computer, he mentioned that he had figured out a way to make it work. Once we had talked Robert down from a jealousy frenzy, we decided to record an episode and get Richie to lay out his workaround.  Is he on a winner according to one of Source Elements' founders and chief techs? Well, you'll have to listen to find out!! A big shout out to...

The Pro Audio Suite

One is possibly one of the most used studio interfaces on the planet. The other is strangely one of the most popular ways to connect to record Professional voiceovers outside of Hollywood. The problem is getting them to play nicely together is not as easy as you might think. Whilst Robbo is convinced the easiest solution and most professional is a copy of NEXUS, George has come up with a neat little workaround that gets you where you need to be to use both at their highest potential without the cost of extra software... A big shout out to our sponsors, Austrian...

Capsules - Nylon v Ceramic show art Capsules - Nylon v Ceramic

The Pro Audio Suite

AKG used a brass capsule in their famous c414, but later turned to nylon as their preferred material, whilst today Austrian Audio is using ceramic in their capsules.

IOS is the operating system for Apple smartphones and iPads. More and more consumer demand is pushing audio developers to come up with Apps that allow them to record on these devices.

More Episodes

We've all had those sessions. You know, the ones where the client not only wants to direct the reads but also tell you how to use not only your voice but the mic and your gear as well. 

Thing is, if there's an Engineer in the middle, that's sorta their call, after all, they're the ones who have to fix it if it ain't right at mix time. So how do you handle sticky situations like this?
