Mike Andrade has a such a varied music career it’s hard to know where to start. He got his taste for music back in high school playing drums, to making electronic music in the pre-DAW days. He’s worked in some legendary studios and with some legendary artists. Now you can find him behind the boards for Tribal Seeds on the road. Do you do FOH or Monitors or both? I do both, on this year’s…

WHAMS is a Los Angeles based production team comprised of producers Trent Mazur and Michael Freesh. They’ve worked with everyone from Train to Flo Rida to Nelly, and many others. What really makes them so refreshing to me is they also seem to be more focused on making great music than blasting the internet with social media posts. They are grounded even though they have worked with some of todays biggest stars.  We got them…

Our guest post this time out is from Sudwyn Munshi. Besides for being intactly involved in the shell detailing process at Ultimate Ears, Sudwyn is a Los Angeles based producer, engineer, and let’s not forget musician. One thing that I can do outside of the studio, whether at home, my local coffee shop, bookstore, etc. is mix. I do sometimes like the change of pace and it’s nice to get out and see the sun…

Last week Ultimate Ears unveiled  the UE Pro Remastered. It’s the latest collaboration with Capitol Studios and it’s a big deal for many reasons. You might be asking “what does remastering IEMs even mean?”   A few years ago Ultimate Ears and Capitol Studios teamed up. Their goal was to create an In-Ear Monitor that could address a rather confounding problem.   So many producers and engineers are moving from studio to studio each with it’s…

WIRELESS TRANSMITTERS & RECEIVERS FOR IN-EAR MONITORING In order to fully understand the total benefits of in-ear monitoring, let’s first cover the basics of wireless transmitters: how they work and how they relate to in-ear monitoring. Wireless systems and in-ear monitors are interdependent — you rarely have one without the other and in order to reap the benefits of both you must have the right systems in place and have a basic understanding of how…

Producer / Engineer  FRIAS has worked in the US and Mexico with bands as diverse as Molotov and Syntek. He’s worked both in the studio and in a variety of live settings. We caught FRIAS during a break in his non-stop schedule and got to ask everything from his history to what it’s like like winning a Grammy™. His answers are also en Español en cursive. Big shout out to UE’s Jazmin Sandoval for the…

Larry Crane is the creator of Tape Op Magazine. For nearly 20 years Tape Op has been a must read for those looking to learn and explore ideas in creative recording.   Fittingly,  Tape Op got it’s start in the mid 1990’s as a photocopied, hand-stapled magazine with spray painted covers. Since then Larry and his partner John Baccigaluppm who handles layout, publishing and more, have grown Tape Op into an audio magazine with the…

There’s a lot of truth to the statement; “Lower stage volumes equal better shows for everyone.” Especially for you in the long-run. Volume Wars: In our previous post about the advantages of IEMs over Wedges, we looked at the idea of “Volume Wars.” That is when you are trying to hear your instrument over the other people in the band on stage. Here’s the thing, everyone else on stage is probably having the same issue…
