Everything Recording has decided that since the PR Model for most pro audio companies is a little lackluster at times, that we are going to use this page to launch careers. If you have an artist or ARE an artist who I think is cool, I’ll feature your project. This week’s project is one I’ve invested a great deal of time and money into. Ike Allday is an artist I have worked with for about 2 years. I’ve done all of the production and mixing. It was a learning experience for me because this is my first rap album to be involved in. Now Ike needs your help to get promotion.
This album is essentially a sound track to my life at different stages and times, it’s a soundtrack to all of our lives. Celebration, struggle, tragedy, triumph, poverty, school, youth and the fear that comes with it are some of the topics this album touches on. My main focus was to give you music that you could actually talk about later, music that makes you think, dance, love, cry or smile. It has been a challenging journey up to this point and our biggest obstacle still remains. We need YOU! You have the power to help us bring this album to life and share it with the world. So, we ask you to give whatever you can, help how ever you can, spread the word to as many as you can. Your support is critical and appreciated greatly.
STRETCH GOAL: If you guys can help us get to $5,000 we will have just enough to shoot TWO videos. Two is waaaay better than one so I say lets do it. Also I will record and release an exclusive bonus track and send everyone an advanced download link! (People like the words “advanced” and “exclusive”…right?)

I’m finding that Presonus Studio One is making a quick rise as a big player in the DAW World. I haven’t had a chance to mess with it yet but it looks surprisingly a lot like Pro Tools from the screenshots I’ve seen. To get everyone up to date, is available on www.lynda.com. This should get you started in the world of this surprisingly well received DAW.

DAW, featuring producer and remixer Josh Harris, is now available at lynda.com. To promote the new course, online learning company lynda.com is offering a seven-day trial membership to all registered Studio One users.

In his Studio One course, Harris quickly demonstrates how to work with the powerful, yet easy-to-learn DAW, beginning with the Start page and with setting up your artist profile and audio devices. He then shows how to set up and start recording a new song, including punching in and using track layers.
Next, Harris moves into editing audio and MIDI, explaining such important editing functions as comping, trimming, and time-stretching audio; quantizing MIDI; and editing MIDI velocities. He then covers the main mixing features, including using effects chains and presets and working with automation. He also discusses the unique mastering features of the Studio One Project page.

Brett Hestla is a guy. He is a guy who has a vast career in music with some great albums under his belt. He also owns and operates a studio in Florida. All of this sounds like a perfect combination to just up and create a solo project, but what most people that do not run a business fail to realize is that even though you own the studio, time is money and there are bills to pay. So Brett is offering several options and some really sharp headshots to sell himself and his project. This isn’t just any project though. Brett is using his Anchorman-style “News Team Assemble” powers
to call up various big names in the rock world for this incredible solo project. Some of the names include Everything Recording’s good friend Nixon from Framing Hanley, insane drummer Morgan Rose from Sevendust, and Mark Tremonti just to name a few.
So go on’ get on over to his site and give him some cash. You won’t regret it.

I have one of the iKlips for my iPad 1st generation (review here) and I use it on every tracking session I run. In conjunction with an iPad, V-Control Pro (review here), and an iKlip, you can run in and out of the live room and control room and even track drums from another room. If I didn’t have my iKlip, I would be subject to setting the iPad on the low tom or a chair of some sort. iKlip gives you complete control over where in your eye line and reach, your controls are. That’s an important thing when you’re surrounded by perfectly placed mics. Now you can use your shiny new iPad mini for the very same application.
IK Multimedia, the leader in mobile music-creation apps and accessories, is shipping the new range of its smart iPad holders for stage, studio, office or home. The new iKlip™ 2 for iPad, and for iPad mini, are enhanced versions of the most popular iPad microphone stand holders for musicians and presenters, while iKlip Studio for iPad mini completes the range of IK’s practical tabletop stands for 7” tablets.
iKlip 2 is designed to securely hold an iPad 2 (and later) or an iPad mini on a microphone stand or other vertical or horizontal “pole” up to 2.1”/30mm in diameter. It secures to the pole in seco Read the rest of this entry “

iZotope, a leading innovator in digital signal processing, has released two new sound libraries for Iris, the ground-breaking visual synthesizer. Altered and Modular, the largest sound libraries to date, will join Glass, Wood, Voice, Toys, and Food to round out the new Iris+7 bundle, available now.
Altered, the first of two new instrument based sound libraries for Iris, reimagines familiar musical instruments like piano, guitar, and bass by uncovering unconventional timbres through bowing, scraping, bending, and more. Altered includes over 300 new samples such as Plastic Rod on Harp, Piano Strings Resonant Spoon, and Didgeridoo Into Fan, and 200 professionally designed patches like Spectral Bubble, Dub Trombone, and Visual Karate.
Modular, the second new library, is based on samples created from new and vintage modular synths. Ranging from pulsing tones and lush effects to glitchy syncopations and Cartesian sequencing, Modular is designed to harness varied sonic palettes into musical patches for any project. Modular features over 600 samples including Growler Bass, Butterfly Chaos, and Funk Bot Pulse, and 300 patches like Metal Sloths, Zaptastic, Murky Glitch, and Ghost Mallets.
“When Iris was first released in April of 2012, we explored the incredible sonic possibilities of materials like Glass, Wood, Voice, Toys, and Food,” says Jack Cote, Product Manager at iZotope. “Now in 2013, Altered and Modular are bringing traditional musical instruments and vintage synth designs into the Iris world, with thousands of new sounds to kick off your next track.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the Scarlett preamps in these interfaces. I will say that the naming is getting a little confusing and hard to keep up with. Either way bigger numbers usually mean more channels so let’s see what these two have. Looks like the 18i8 has 4 preamps but can expand to 18ins and 8outs, hence the name I guess… I’m an idiot. I think you can only track 4 inputs at a time though but it gives you room to throw an interface with an ADAT optical in the mix and keep preamps on hand. Likewise the 6i6 has 2 Scarlett preamps, 6 outputs, as well as expandability to 6 inputs. Both look very promising and have 2 headphone outs on the front with separate level control.
The Scarlett 18i8 is the first interface from Focusrite to include four award-winning mic preamps. It can also record up to four line inputs at the same time, making it perfect for recording an entire band live. An ADAT option allows the connection of external mic preamps such as the OctoPre Mk II, extending the number of mic pres to 12. The unit also includes S/PDIF I/O.
The Scarlett 6i6 is designed to allow recording on a smaller scale. In addition to two Focusrite mic preamps it features a stereo line input, making it possible to capture, for example, vocals, guitar and a digital piano at the same time. Both models feature the signature Scarlett range unibody metal chassis for road-ruggedness, and the unique ‘signal halo’ LED rings around the input controls that indicate green for a good level and red for overload. They also include two headphone outputs each with their own level controls; the headphone outputs on the 6i6 mirror the main and sub-outputs whereas on the 18i8 they are fully independent.

If you’re reading this site or any site about recording, odds are you know exactly what the letters “CLA” stand for. Even if you don’t think you do recognize the name, in reality you know the man by his work. If you’ve turned on a radio in the past 10 years, you’ve heard his signature sound on the likes of Nickelback, Green Day, and countless others. He is a mixing legend who is very well known for his in your face drum sound and BIG mixes. Enough can’t be said about this guy in my opinion. He is one of my favorite engineers.
So now lets take one of the greats in mixing and combine it with the man who is, undoubtedly, the king of drum libraries and drum related software. Steven Slate is hitting home runs in just about every digital aspect of audio and is even making huge waves in the analog world as well. When Joe Barresi uses a hardware compressor you made along side his multimillion dollar spread, you know you’re doing right. Legend has it that Steven Slate was throwing one of his would famous parties at one of these conventions and met up with Chris, and after a very long (and probably one of the most informative) conversations about drums, this project came about.
So this pair joins forces and we get the Slate CLA Expansion pack. This isn’t just recycled Slate samples with CLA EQ and Compression. Chris wanted to do this right, so they both headed over to Ocean Stud Read the rest of this entry “
