Mackie DL iPad Mixer

This past weekend I was the engineer at a small festival. I didn’t prep the gear, I just showed up. Long story short, I got a bad mixer and the output section pretty much blew up. Bad deal huh? So thankfully, the headlining band brought a Mackie DL mixing console. Let me tell you, I’m a believer now. They brought the 16 channel one and it was great. We had a bad mix position, so their ...[Read More]

Midas Mixtender

Howdy ho everyone. As you may know (or not, it’s all good) I’m a large fan of Midas products. Midas could make soap, and I would buy it. But one thing that never impressed me is the app for the pro series consoles. Although it was useful, it wasn’t everything people wanted it to be. BUT OH BOY GUESS WHAT?! They came out with a Mixtender version 1.2. This time, you can have access...[Read More]

Raven MTi – DAW Multi-Touch Control

As a studying music producer, I work a lot with Pro Tools. Both in my classes, and on personal projects.

Arturia iMini Minimoog iPad Emulation

Well, it’s been far too long since I’ve posted so I thought I’d get off my butt and do something about that. Just so you know my plan is still to try and post at least every 2 or 3 days…I did say try! I’m not normally one to be looking at software instruments, however this one caught my eye because of the post I did a couple posts back about audio and the iPad. Arturi...[Read More]

Audio and the iPad

Well, I thought I’d take a break from NAMM stuff and do a post I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. With the release of Behringers new iPad mixers it is becoming more and more apparent that the iPad and tabletcomputers in general are going to have a place in the audio world. Now yes it is true that the iPad is probably not yet capable of handling full Pro Tools sessions with tracks...[Read More]

NAMM 2013: Behringer iX16

Yes, it’s true, I am not a Behringer fan. Most of their gear seems a little flimsy and frankly not very appealing, with a few exceptions. However their newest release did catch my eye. It seems that the iPad is becoming more and more a part of the digital audio world today with the release of the iX16, an iPad controlled mixer which also doubles as an 18 channel USB interface. Here’s t...[Read More]
