1962 BBC Training Manual | Martin Mitchell’s Microphones

In the 1951 BBC Microphones training manual we saw that the corporation functioned with a small selection of British manufactured microphones, most of which had been in service since the 1930’s.  So when I saw this Manual from 1962 I was curious to see how ‘Auntie’ had moved on into the swinging sixties.

What a neat resource.

How To Record Edit And Mix A Choir Remotely For A UK TV Broadcast | Production Expert

On Thursday, April 16th 2020, Lucy shared an ITV news segment of a moving tribute to our wonderful National Health Service (NHS) workers and those who have lost their lives to COVID-19 here is the UK.

Record Repeat – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Record Repeat

The description makes it sound like a “cycle” recording, but that would be better described by multiple takes. Use this command to not make a new take, but to simply delete the current recording and start recording anew.

I expect that this would be a very handy command to program into Logic Remote. Using Logic Remote to control recording is an excellent idea, and remarkably useful for doing self recordings. No need to sit in front of the computer to drive the DAW, just be in the recording position and use a tool in your hands or next to you.

Advanced recording commands – Logic Pro X

Record/Record Repeat: Use to delete the recording, move the playhead back to the recording start position, and start recording again.

 

 

⇧ SHIFT  –  ⌃ CONTROL  –  ⌥ OPTION  –  ⌘ COMMAND

I was a guest on the Sound Design Live podcast hosted by Nathan Lively. We talked about mixing monitors from FOH, workflow, and how I’ve mostly (but not completely) managed to avoid artists vomiting on my mics.
