At CSGSMusicTech we’re always looking to add new ways of recording to our midi setup. The Seaboard RISE is one of a new crop of controllers that look to improve the way we record. Why add modulation, filter cutoff or glide after a performance has been recorded, when you could do it all at once? This approach is designed to lead to more organic performances.

Price is a bit steep for our studio at the moment (£949!!) but as the price of this tech comes down, expect to see it in more studios.

Y13s, please see the below links for live jazz mixing techniques. I would read them critically – lots of good tips but make your own judgments about the sort of mix you are going for.

How to get that perfect vocal

There are many approaches to vocal recording. Do you go for an emotional, continuous take, or splice multiple recordings together into a pitch perfect sequence? This article from Bobby Owsinski delves into the latter method, using the multiple takes feature of your DAW for maximum accuracy.

A great article from the StudioSpares Pro Audio blog about why it’s important to position your monitors carefully. I especially like the ‘painting under poor lighting’ analogy!


The studio is due to see its next round of improvements over the next couple of months, including some new equipment and routing capabilities. We will be seeing the addition of a rack mounted Presonus HP60 to replace our portable headphone amp (which can still be used to further split a headphone signal), wall boxes with XLR and Jack routing to keep everything permanently connected (freeing up the snake for use in M2) and a flashy new Rode NT2-A condenser microphone with selectable pickup patterns (omni, cardioid and figure 8).

Another excellent video demonstrating just how much sound can be altered by well placed acoustic treatment. Check out 2.55 for the before / after sound comparison.

This video gives a great insight into the process behind a huge EDM hit, One, by Swedish House Mafia. Really interesting to see how each member of the group shapes the tune and sound until it clicks.
