Modern Recording Techniques - David Miles Huber

The world of modern music and sound production is multifaceted. It’s an exciting world of creative individuals: musicians, engineers, producers, manufacturers, and businesspeople who are experts in such fields as music, acoustics, electronics, production, broadcast media, multimedia, marketing, graphics, law, and the day-to-day workings of the business of music. The combined efforts of these talented people work together to create a single end product: marketable music. The process of turning a creative spark into a final product takes commitment, talent, a creative production team, a marketing strategy and, often, money. Over the history of recorded sound, the process of capturing music and transforming it into a marketable product has radically changed. In the past, the process of turning one’s own music into a final product required the use of a commercial recording studio, which was (and still is) equipped with professional staff and was a specialized facility that was often hired for big bucks. With the introduction of the large-scale integrated circuit (LSI), mass production, and mass marketing (three of the most powerful forces in the ‘‘information age’’), another option has come onto the scene: the radical idea that musicians, engineers, and/or producers can have their own project, desktop, and/or laptop studio. Along with this concept comes the realization that almost anyone can afford, construct, and learn to master a personal audio production facility . . . In short, we’re living in the midst of a techno-artistic revolution that puts more power, artistic control, and knowledge directly into the hands of creative individuals from all walks of life in the music business. On the techno side, those who are new to the world of modern multitrack recording, musical instrument digital interface (MIDI), digital audio, and their production environments should be aware that years of dedicated practice are often required to develop the skills that are needed to successfully master the art and application of these technologies. A person new to the recording or project studio environment (Figures 1.1 and 1.2) might easily be awestruck by the amount and variety of equipment that’s involved in the process; however, when we become familiar with the tools, toys, and techniques of recording technology, a definite order to the studio’s makeup soon begins to appear, with each piece of equipment being designed to play a role in the overall scheme of music and audio production.  Although it’s taken the modern music studio about 80 years to evolve to its current level of technological sophistication, we have begun to move into the adolescent stage of an important evolutionary process in the business of music and music production: the dawning of the digital age. Truly, this is an amazing time in production history . . . as we’ve moved to a time when we can choose between an amazing array of cost-effective and powerful tools for fully realizing our creative and human potential. As always, patience and a nose-to-the-grindstone attitude are needed in order to learn how to use them effectively; however, this knowledge can help free you for the really important stuff—making music and audio productions. In my opinion, these are definitely the good ol’ days!
