MTSU Studio A Orientation: Mics, Stands, Cables and Signal Flow

October 5, 2017 at 4:30 pm

Location: RI Studio A, College of Media and Entertainment, Middle Tennessee State University

Moderated by: Kyle Holland and Catherine Baron

Speaker(s): Michael Fleming and Bill Crabtree, faculty co-advisors

As the semester gets underway, we want to welcome all interested students, especially new and pre-candidacy students, to the MTSU Audio Production program with this orientation in Studio A. 

We'll start with an overview of AES and student membership benefits.  Then, we'll discuss ways that you can contribute to recording sessions as an assistant, even if you're not enrolled in a particular production class.  Good assistants must demonstrate a number of important social and technical skills which we'll explore through some discussion and hands-on participation.  

Key points?  

  • Eyes and ears open.
  • Mouth closed (unless in emergencies!)
  • Think and plan ahead.
  • Take notes.
  • Set-up and manipulate stands correctly.
  • Lay out, dress and coil cables properly.
  • Handle mics securely and carefully.  
  • Know your signal flow...!

Past Event: Studio Monitoring: The Phantom Focus System

Studio Monitoring: The Phantom Focus System

October 21, 2015 at 4:00 pm

Location: College of Education Building (COE) Room 104, Middle Tennessee State University

Moderated by: AES Officers

Speaker(s): Carl Tatz

Due to an emergency power outage that affected numerous buildings at MTSU, this meeting could not take place as planned.  It will be rescheduled as soon as possible based on Carl Tatz's availability.  

The current (Fall 2015) semester saw the introduction of three newly optimized monitoring systems in the Department of Recording Industry's Control Rooms A, B and Mix 180 at MTSU.  Acoustical consultant Carl Tatz performed the system analysis and modifications during the summer using a series of alignment and signal processing procedures that he collectively describes as the "Phantom Focus" protocol.  

MTSU now features Phantom Focus stereo monitoring in five of its control rooms, allowing students and faculty to record and mix with unprecedented confidence in the extended frequency range and linear response of the customized systems.  

In this guest lecture, Carl Tatz will describe the characteristics and benefits of accurate monitoring along with the meaurement and alignment procedures he's developed over several decades of high-profile studio design work for clients in Nashville and throughout the United States.
