AP makes no secret of the fact that he loves his OC818 from Austrian Audio, and I have to agree that it is a beautiful match to his warm tones. But at $1200 USD it's not exactly a bargain. So what about its little brother the OC18 ($850)? Not q

AT & T has just announced they will be closing their ISDN network from June 1 2023, and many other major players are already winding down services. Australia has already lost their network and the UK closes in the next few years. Given the ISD
So you've got a script that involves a bit of close mic work and some really brash and loud dialogue. How should you tame those nasty peaks but at the same time maintain a good level for the softer bits without compression? Plus we dive into th
There are a bunch of them out there, clones of some of your favourite mics. You can buy them online as a kit or straight from the designer. But do they stack up to the real deal, and are they worth the $? This week we take a look! The Pro Audio
In the Southern Hemisphere, it's that time of year, flu season. While he hasn't got COVID, AP does have the dreaded Flu, and his voice is paying the price. But it could be allergies, a simple cold, you name it. Snotty and sinusy, it sounds like
The mic chart! If you're looking for a new mic (or even your first) the one thing that might point you in the direction of a mic or two that's worth auditioning for your voice is the frequency response chart. But what do they show? How do you k
There seemed to be some confusion on a recent Social Media post regarding the upgrade path for Source Connect on PC. Given that Source Elements are mothballing some of the older versions (15 years or older) of their popular software, some users

Everyone has their preference for headphones. Open, closed, in ears, and some you may never have heard of. We opened this episode with the intent of discussing just Open v Closed, but in the usual Pro Audio Suite tradition, the conversation end
From treatment on the walls to computer monitors, iPads, and more. What is necessary and what is optional in your booth if you really want to be prepared for what may come at you from the other end of the line during a session? The Pro Audio Su
So you jump in the booth at home, and with the client on the line, lay down a bunch of takes. Then, down the line, you hear them say, "we haven't been recording here, could you cut takes 2 and 6 together, with the third paragraph from take 12?"
Diffusion and Absobtion. Both completely legitimate ways to treat your room and booth, but which one is better, and most importantly, which one should you be using? This week, Robbo, George, Robert, and AP break down the ins and outs of each te
We all love the smell of a new car, but did you know it's actually a nasty gas that creates that new car whiff?? Well, it's the same with studio foam, and if that's not enough, what those same particles of foam can do if they get into your lung
