PSE13 - Fix it in the Mic—Using Microphones as Your EQPresenter:
Julian David, AEA Ribbon Microphones - Cologne, Germany
Have you ever struggled with too many instruments fighting for real estate when mixing? Or have you ever wished you would have spotted an issue earlier, while EQ'ing a signal to death just to make it fit in the mix? Particularly in project studios, when recording time is more expensive than mix time, it's easy to postpone important decisions until later, opening the door to a myriad of avoidable problems. Producer/engineer and ribbon microphone expert Julian David will present microphone techniques and recording strategies for getting a great sound during tracking rather than "fixing it in the mix." A special focus will be on affordable and realistic solutions to improve your sound at home and in project studios.
