Stereo Miking Techniques for Acoustic Guitar
Learn the three most tried-and-true stereo miking techniques for recording acoustic guitar.
The Cooper Time Cube
The CTC was noted for its uncanny ability to always sit perfectly in the mix and was used on many hit records, such as “Tell Me Something Good” by Rufus and “Low Rider” by War, for its spectacular short delay and doubling effects. Since its early discontinuation, the CTC has grown a very strong cult following and finds a home in such prestigious studios as Blackbird and Sunset Sound.
Total Harmonic Distortion
THD stands for Total Harmonic Distortion and can be used to estimate the degree to which a system is nonlinear. A THD measurement can be made by applying a sine wave as an input to a system, and measuring the total energy which appears at the output of the system at harmonics of the input frequency.
Mastering with the UAD-2
This video demonstrates using UA's Precision Mastering series plug-ins, along with some of the Precision Mix series plug-ins, to master a track.
Optimizing Your UAD's Performance for Logic Pro
First let me introduce myself. I’m Dan Becker, the Mac Support Guy (MSG??!!). Probably one of the most common email questions I receive in the ol' Mac Support email box regards the use of the UAD products with Logic Pro. So let’s look at how to maximize performance of your UAD products with this popular host application!
Allpass filters are filters that have what we call a flat frequency response; they neither emphasize nor de-emphasize any part of the spectrum. Rather, they displace signals in time as a function of frequency. The time displacement accomplished by an allpass filter is specified by its phase response.
