Mike's Wild Stereo Mic Test:

All my Mix Review critiques or commercial productions are freely available to read online. Here's a full listing of them all with links: http://cambridge-mt.com/MikeSeniorFull.htm#MixReview

And, specifically, here are a few of those specific critiques where I discuss tracks which I suspect contain engineering mistakes: Hilary Hahn: Christos Hatzis 'Coming To' (check out the strange stereo imaging artefacts) http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jan16/articles/mix-review-0116.htm#para1

Rudimental (featuring John Newman): 'Feel The Love' (odd mono-incompatible low end) https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/mix-review-10#para1

Labrinth (featuring Emeli Sandé): 'Beneath Your Beautiful' (sounds suspiciously like the CD album version was mastered from an MP3) https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/mix-review-6#para3

Classic Mix: Bing Crosby: 'White Christmas' (was the balance engineer napping during Bing's opening phrase?) http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/dec13/articles/themixreview-1213.htm#para4

Classic Mix: The Police: 'Roxanne' (Sting sits on the piano keyboard and there's some clunky editing)

For the business questions, there's one book that's really influenced me with regards to the positive power of mistakes: Matthew Syed's 'Black Box Thinking'. If you want a flavour of what he has to say, check out his TEDX talk at the London Business School: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmVCYqs3mko

My own personal recommendations for project-studio loudspeakers and headphones for mixing:

http://www.cambridge-mt.com/ms-ch1.htm#links

http://www.cambridge-mt.com/ms-ch2.htm#links

This one I'll illustrate by talking about my struggles with stereo recording technique. In the end, the guy who I most trust these days on the subject is called Helmut Wittek, who has an excellent resources website here: http://www.hauptmikrofon.de/us/helmut-wittek

In particular, he has developed an app for Schopes called IMA3 which provides really useful guidance on how to set up all manner of stereo microphone techniques, as well as information about their unique sonic characteristics: http://www.ima.schoeps.de/

My favourite book on the subject of perceptual bias is Thaler & Sunstein's classic 'Nudge' -- in just 20 pages, the first chapter lists a half-dozen peceptual biases that I struggle with all the time, both in and out of the studio.

The other killer bias in studios is, of course, loudness bias, and here are three situations you have to be really careful about it: - When parallel compressing: it's really easy to end up making an instrument louder if you're adding the compressed signal via a separate mixer channel.

- When multimiking any instrument: add in any extra microphone, and it'll make the resulting sound louder.

- When EQing: if you use a lot of boosts, you'll make the sound louder in addition to adjusting its tone.

DRUMS - In dry-sounding rooms, try using more than two overheads. Here's a free web article (with audio files) about a session where I used two pairs of overheads rather than one: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/apr13/articles/session-notes-0413.htm

RECORDING ACOUSTIC GUITARS - demonstrates (with audio files) how good they can sound: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jan16/articles/session-notes-0116.htm

Here's that audio example I mentioned of a figure-eight guitar mic two feet from the singer (http://audio.cambridge-mt.com/CMTWorkshops/PSE_RecordingMistakes/AES0306_Figure8GuitarSeparation.mp3)

ELECTRIC GUITARS - Multimiking. Here's another free web article with audio demonstrations of that technique in practice: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/aug13/articles/session-notes-0813.htm

VOCAL RECORDING - Try speaker foldback. Here are some audio examples that demonstrate the effectiveness of various different foldback-spill-reduction techniques: http://www.cambridge-mt.com/rs-ch5.htm#audio

MIXING - Mix referencing is the king of all small-studio mixing techniques. Here's an article about choosing and using mix references: https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/creating-your-own-reference-cd

Joe Chiccarelli talks about recording killer drums, guitars, and vocals among other things...

My guest today is Joe Chiccarelli a ten time Grammy Award-Winning Producer/Engineer & Mixer who has been making great records for more than 3 decades. Joe’s credits include such artists as Tori Amos, Beck, The Strokes, The Killers, U2, Elton John, My Morning Jacket, Spoon, The Shins, The White Stripes, Morrissey, Christina Perri, Alanis Morrisette, Jason Mraz, Cafe Tacuba, and The Raconteurs for which he received his eighth Grammy award, for Best Engineered Album of 2008 for "Consolers of The Lonely." Joe got his first big break with one of my favorite artists, Frank Zappa, in 1979 recording Sheik Yerbouti, Joe’s Garage Acts I&II, Shut Up And Play Yer Guitar, and Tinsel Town Rebellion.

When asked about recording the sound of the Central Scrutinizer with Frank Zappa, Joe said: “Frank was a gentleman and a total visionary. An absolute pleasure to work with on all occasions. The Central Scrutinizer was simply Frank speaking into a megaphone off axis on a Neumann M 49. UMRK was great. Initially a Harrison console and later a Neve. Designed by Rudy Bruer with a really great sounding live echo chamber.” JC
