(Proximity Effect, Mic Types, Pick-up Patterns and More)

Recording Vocals in the studio can be one of the most challenging aspects of tracking and music production. Not only does the type of mic affect the quality, but so does the placement, the surrounding acoustics, the room, the polar pattern on the mic, etc. This tutorial will be of assistance to shed some light on these topics, and particularly useful for engineers working in home studios. The mic’s we use today are direct descendants of early telephone technology. Once radio broadcast and recording technology started to emerge in the mid-20th century, music lovers looked at developing better, more specific microphones for use in the studio and recording world. Today, we have an endless variety of microphones to choose from, however, they all still work according to the fundamental principles developed by our techno-ancestors.


   

Mixing in Pro Tools with Analog Hardware is one of the many techniques used by professional engineers. For many years certain devices in the studio have become “infamous” amongst engineers and producers. The never-ending list includes equipment such as a FairChild Compressor, Tube-Tech EQ, Amek 9098i Channel Strip, Lexicon FX Processors, along with dozens of other unique and flavorful devices that are still used to this very day. While the majority of these “classic” devices gained their notoriety during the hey-day of analog recording, they are also being utilized this very day in the latest Pro Tools based digital studios. The power of Pro Tools lies not only with what it can do, but also with its ability to incorporate hardware and software together into a seamlessly package.

The usage of equipment in this way goes back to analog consoles, which allowed user to plug in various equipment by “patching in” (connecting) the input and outputs to the console. The only difference we have nowadays is that our “console” is called Pro Tools and the “patching in” occurs via the Audio Interface. If we follow the same rules of signal flow our forebears did, we can patch in any piece of hardware equipment directly into Pro Tools, just as if it were an analog console and tape machine.
