Happy Dynamic Range Day 2019!

Happy Dynamic Range Day everyone!

Ian Shepherd (forever referred to as Saint Ian on this humble Blog) has been doing this for like a decade now, and I consider it pretty much the only Holiday for those of us trying to make decent sounding audio for the Broadcast, Film, Pro Audio, or even Not-So-Pro Audio industries, like anyone who actually likes listening to music.

So if you fit in to any one of those genres (or just want to pretend like you are) head over to the DRD Website for info, memes, and an announcement of this years winner of the Grand Prize Award.

J Cole’s KOD nabbed it last year, FYI… 🙂

Oh, and there’s a bonus from Saint Ian himself over at The Mastering Show audiocast: his analogy and tips for creating a dynamic mix that competes on the Major Streamers. Great stuff.

Enjoy your Holiday fellow Audio Troublemakers!

Universal Audio Apollo-X Interfaces

Hits all the buttons: Thunderbolt 3, Unison preamps, scary dynamic range, superb quality, immaculate sound. 

Yeah, they’re expensive and the plugins are pricy too (although UA runs lots of sales over the course of the year and you can pick up some great deals), but as an Apollo Twin owner I have to say that it’s one of the best investments I’ve made for audio interfacing – you do get what you pay for. If you’re looking for a studio upgrade you should be looking at these.

I’m betting they’ll have a desktop version (Twin-type chassis or an update of the Arrow) soon which might be better for ‘the rest of us’ 🙂
