Wireless is increasingly the norm when it comes to earphones. Even some laptop manufacturers are ditching the headphone jack. (Looking at you, you’re freaks.) And, while Bluetooth certainly offers a lot of convenience, there’s one group of users who can’t quite take advantage of it: music producers. You see, the latency introduced by the new generation of Bluetooth devices can be as high as 40ms, even under ideal conditions. And for older hardware, this can stretch well beyond 100ms. It’s not just the hardware that can be a problem. For a long time, Android was known to have serious latency issues over Bluetooth, although the situation has , at least according to Google. This makes it extremely difficult to keep things on time if you’re recording and nearly unusable for live monitoring.

Then, in December last year, AIAIAI introduced what it claims to be the “world’s first wireless headphones for music creators,” the $350 . The main selling point is a special which promises a constant latency of 16 ms. It’s not zero latency, but it’s close enough that wearing wireless headphones in the studio feels reasonable.

Now, before we get to the wireless specifics, let’s talk more generally about the TMA-2 headphones. Like the rest of the AIAIAI range, these allow you to replace various parts if necessary, due to damage or changing needs. This also means that you must assemble them when they first appear. But it’s a pretty quick and easy process, even if it seems a bit daunting at first. It took me less than 10 minutes from opening the box to connecting the headphones to my laptop. Basically, if you have already assembled a Lego set, you can manage a pair of AIAIAI.

Studio headphones use the ““, and they sound great. They’re not the most neutral headphones I’ve ever used, but they’re not terribly unbalanced. I found the high frequency response to be a little better and the bass less boosted on my Sony MDR-7506 AIAIAIs are still great for mixing – go in knowing the tone is heading towards the darker side, but the soundstage is very open and wide.

AIAIAI Studio Wireless+

The two biggest complaints I have about the sound are relatively minor. Like to have , there is some noise introduced when using them in 2.4Ghz low latency mode with the transmitter. It’s a slight static that you can start to hear with the volume at around 50%, but becomes more noticeable at over 75%. You can mostly mitigate this by changing the volume at the source rather than the headphones themselves, but it’s worth being aware of.

The second issue is that the Studio Wireless+ are oddly quiet when using them over Bluetooth. With my Jaybirds or Sonys, I usually set the volume on my phone to 75 or 80%. But even at 100%, I found myself wishing for just a little more volume on the AIAIAI. Casual conversation isn’t going to dominate your music, but it might not provide the level of masking you’d want on an airplane.

The Studio and Studio Wireless+ also come with plush Alcantara-covered ear cups. I wore them for hours without any problems. These are some of the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever used. At first, I had slight concerns about the headband, which is all rubber and has no obvious padding. But these turned out to be unfounded, as there’s a soft don around the inside of the band that offers more than enough padding for marathon recording sessions.

AIAIAI Studio Wireless+

The battery life is also more than enough for marathon sessions. AIAIAI says the Wireless+ will last over 80 hours in Bluetooth mode. Frankly, I don’t have the patience or the time to test this claim. I can tell you that I used them almost every day, in a mix of Bluetooth and low latency modes for three weeks and still had some juice left. I did, however, test the 16 hour battery life claim using 2.4GHz specifically, and got 15 hours and 58 minutes. It’s surprisingly close – and I was even able to gain a bit more life by turning them back on in Bluetooth mode.

What was both amazing and confusing, however, was that despite the low battery beep when I turned them back on, my MacBook and iPhone were showing 40% battery life remaining. I even took a 20 minute walk while listening to music, and the battery gauge didn’t budge. I was then able to sit in front of my laptop for nearly a full hour, playing the occasional video and listening to music before the headphones completely shut down and wouldn’t turn back on. But, even until the end, macOS insisted that there was 40% left, so something is wrong. I asked AIAIAI if they had any theories as to why this might be and will update this review if and when I hear again.

Oh, and even after you’ve completely drained the battery, you can still connect the headphones to your audio source of choice using a regular old TRS cable.

AIAIAI Studio Wireless+

Of course, the real reason to buy the AIAIAI Studio Wireless+ isn’t for the epic battery life, it’s for the special low latency mode and let me tell you: it delivers. Now that’s not zero latency. You can detect it in very specific circumstances, but that’s not enough to make a difference. I recorded live using my laptop and a MIDI controller, and practiced the drums with my fingers and had no problems.

The only time I noticed the tiny 16ms lag was when monitoring live while recording in the same room as my guitar amp. Being able to hear the amp on headphone power almost sounded like my guitar was dual-tracked. But the effect wasn’t strong enough to cause me any problems.

AIAIAI Studio Wireless+

Terrence O’Brien / Engadget

I don’t think I was prepared for how liberating it was, though. While yes, switching the headphones on and off, or dragging the long, heavy, coiled cable from my MDR-7506s is a pain, my “studio” is extremely small. It is the front third of a finished attic, and it serves as both an office and a guest bedroom. So there’s not much space to maneuver around and it’s a bit crowded.

Still, being able to pick up my guitar, without first removing my headphones or worrying about keeping the cable out of the way, was awesome. And going back and forth to swap a pedal on my board, or a drum machine on my desk without thinking, made experimenting that much easier. A big part of any creative endeavor is getting into a state of flow and staying there. Even the smallest obstacle can disrupt this, and the AIAIAI Studio Wireless+ removes one of those obstacles.

AIAIAI Studio Wireless+

This freedom of movement would undoubtedly be even more appreciated by people with larger and better equipped studios. The range of the 2.4 GHz transmitter is also quite solid. I was able to walk from my attic all the way downstairs before I started losing connection.

Now the question is whether this convenience is worth the $350. And I would say, for me at least, the answer is yes. Although I tend to build my studio on a shoestring budget (after all: I’m not a professional musician, life in New York is expensive and I have two children), this seems like an indulgence worth making. If you’re the type to produce music entirely out of the box (on a computer using only software instruments), the appeal might not be so strong. But being able to shoot, untethered and record, while not waking up my family in the middle of the night, is a godsend.

In a new interview with Anne Erickson of audio ink radio, SEPTEMBER guitarist John Connolly talked about the progress of songwriting sessions for the 2020s sequel “Blood and Stone” album. He said, “We’re in demo mode right now. We’re going into the studio this summer. So, yeah, we’re working on as many new demos as we can. We’ve started working with LJ [singer Lajon Witherspoon] [to] initiate the voice process. But, yeah, probably [in] July August, [we’ll] go to the studio.”

Asked about the direction of the new SEPTEMBER music, John said: “It’s hard to say. It’s all over the place, usually SEPTEMBER fashion, until we really start to refine and figure out what will do and what won’t. We are realistic at this point. We know that all the first stuff we work on at the demo stage will either be the first single or it will probably never see the light of day. So some of these songs are just a stepping stone to something cooler. It’s always exciting when you’re at this stage of the process, because you just don’t know. Sometimes you have to step back and say to yourself, “Okay, maybe we should listen to some of the stuff that happened a few months ago” before you find those special moments. But with everyone diving into Dropboxes and choosing their favorites and stuff like that, I imagine that in the next six weeks we’ll probably have a lot more form and sound. But, yeah, the vibe is just a big question mark. It’s a big, wide-open canvas right now, which is good, because we’ve got tons of ideas to fill it, that’s for sure.”

Last December, SEPTEMBER released an extended digital edition of “Blood and Stone”. “Blood and Stone Deluxe” contained five new tracks, including three previously unreleased remixes and two newly recorded songs. Jake Bowen of PERIPHERY, Richard Wicander of THE FIRE OF THE GODS and Justin de Blieckformerly of ICE NINE KILLEDprovided remixes and the band finished recording “All I Really Know” and “What You Are” specifically for this version. “Blood and Stone Deluxe” was published via all digital partners via Climb records and was produced by Michael “Elvis” Basketball.

Connolly is currently promoting “Hypoxia”the third studio album of his PROJECTED project, which also includes SEPTEMBER bass player Vince Hornby next to ALTER BRIDGE/CREED drummer Scott Phillips and guitarist/singer Eric Friedman (a.k.a E-Rock; TREMONTI). To be returned on June 24 via Rat Pak Recordingsthe sequel in 13 tracks from 2017 “Ignite My Madness” was followed at Barbarosa Studio in Gotha, Florida with producer Michael “Elvis” Basketballwho has worked with SEPTEMBER, ALTER BRIDGE and CUTamong others.

Nana Dakrabo I to Build $350 Million Film Studio and Production House in Ghana https://recordingstudiolondon.co.uk/nana-dakrabo-i-to-build-350-million-film-studio-and-production-house-in-ghana/ Mon, 16 May 2022 06:46:10 +0000 https://recordingstudiolondon.co.uk/nana-dakrabo-i-to-build-350-million-film-studio-and-production-house-in-ghana/ A Los Angeles-born entrepreneur as Mpuntuhene (Head of Development) of Akonoma in the Central Region Asebu Kingdom, Nana Dakrabo I partnered with WEG Studios in Washington DC, musician and producer Koby Maxwell, to actor Michael Blackson and other notable people. to build a state-of-the-art film studio and production house, dubbed “Dakrabo 1 Studios” in Ghana.

A Los Angeles-born entrepreneur as Mpuntuhene (Head of Development) of Akonoma in the Central Region Asebu Kingdom, Nana Dakrabo I partnered with WEG Studios in Washington DC, musician and producer Koby Maxwell, to actor Michael Blackson and other notable people. to build a state-of-the-art film studio and production house, dubbed “Dakrabo 1 Studios” in Ghana.

Costing an estimated three hundred and fifty million dollars ($350 million), the state-of-the-art film studio will be located on 321 acres of land in Ghana, making it the first of its kind in Africa.

The project, when completed, will create thousands of jobs for the entertainment industry in Ghana.

Nana Dakrabo’s team is made up of top industry executives, as well as architects, studio developers, contractors, executives, investors and celebrities with interests aligned to make Ghana an entertainment center in Africa.

Nana Dakrabo I think it is time for Africans around the world to unite and invest in entertainment in Africa, just as the rest of the world benefits.

Speaking to the media, Nana Dakrabo I explained that entertainment is her greatest passion. “I was born in Los Angeles and grew up with celebrities and executives. Basically I was raised around Hollywood and now I’m going to bring Hollywood to Ghana,” he said.

Known in private life as Michael B. Pratt, the entrepreneur said his vision was to “develop a Hollywood ecosystem in Ghana. Beyond the film studio, I want to see professionals from all creative industries realize their “Hollywood” dreams without leaving the continent and see a thriving entertainment industry that attracts talent and attention from around the world. »

With Nollywood in Nigeria being the 2nd largest film industry in the world, producing over 2,500 films and employing over 300,000 people annually, there is a huge opportunity to attract high quality, world class productions to Ghana.

Koby Maxwell, a famous Nollywood film producer, also added that “a film studio in Ghana will greatly improve the industry with high quality productions and reveal potential and opportunities for the whole world”.

The studio is poised to capitalize on the African film market, gaining a significant share of productions from neighboring countries, while simultaneously attracting productions from around the world.

Once the campus is developed, Dakrabo Studios 1 will feature seven (7) sound stages, a 240 acre backlot, blue screen water tank, recording studio, pre/post production facilities, halls projection, a concert hall, offices, a hotel for the actors and the teams, and especially, a school of cinema and music.

A film and music school

The initiators at Dakrabo 1 studios will create a space for creativity to flourish and give students hands-on training, both in the classroom and in the studio.

Nana Dakrabo I said, “Our education and technology partners are working together to create an educational experience that enables industry-leading educators in Los Angeles to teach virtually in Ghana.

“It is essential that future professionals are properly trained in best practices and techniques directly from industry practitioners. This will enable professionals to create content of a caliber that rivals a Hollywood blockbuster.”

Each building on the grounds will be named after an influential African from around the world.

It is Nana’s way of honoring the pioneers to indicate that the project will be possible because Africans around the world are coming together to move the continent forward.

Without a major production facility in Ghana, there is no potential to compete on the global entertainment stage.

In the early 1970s, Leon Russell trusted Tom Petty to make the best music in the recording studio. Petty was new to the scene and took his duties seriously. However, when Petty decided he wanted to look as cool as the studio guys, Russell put him in his place. Russell told him he had to earn the right to look like a rock star.

Leon Russell signed Tom Petty to his Shelter Records in 1974

In 1974 Petty moved to Los Angeles. Shortly thereafter, Denny Cordell signed Petty to Russell’s record label, Shelter Records. Soon Russell became very impressed with Petty’s songwriting and gave him a special job in the recording studio.

Fri, May 13, 2022 1:20 p.m.

Florence + The Machine released their long-awaited new album, “Dance Fever,” on Friday. The album contains previously released tracks”My love,” “Free,” “King” and “paradise is herewhich all arrived with videos from acclaimed director Autumn De Wilde.

“Dance Fever” was recorded in London during the pandemic in anticipation of the world reopening. It is the clubs, dancing at festivals, being in the whirlwind of movement and finally music and conviviality that Florence has missed the most during confinement. It was the hopes and dreams of reuniting with loved ones and dancing with strangers that helped keep the momentum of “Dance Fever” going.

His team said: “That ecstasy, that closeness, that euphoria at the possibilities of movement was reminiscent of the loss of performance and dancing in clubs. After all, music is the unique art form that has the power to help you lose yourself and release your anxieties, even for a moment.

“The image and concept of choreomania – a Renaissance phenomenon in which groups of people danced wildly to exhaustion, collapse and death – became a focal point of inspiration. Forced to leave the road for the first time in more than a decade, dance offered Florence propulsion, energy and a way to look at music in a more choreographic way.

“Beginning, as always, armed with a notebook of poems and ideas, Florence had just arrived in New York in March 2020 to begin recording when COVID-19 forced her to retreat to London. Hiding away at home, the songs she had started began to morph.

“‘Dance Fever’ is an album that sees Florence at the height of her powers, entering into a fully realized self-knowledge, slyly mocking her own personality, playing with ideas of identity, masculine and feminine, redemptive, celebratory, fully taking its place in the iconic pantheon.

Produced by Florence Welch, Jack Antonoff and Dave Bayley, “Dance Fever” brings back the best of Florence and was made for the stage. After its three nights of intimate UK shows sold out within a minute of going on sale, Florence + the Machine have announced their ‘Dance Fever Tour’ for November, which includes several arena shows – including two nights at the O2 in London.

Florence’s chosen charity partner for this tour is Choose Love, where £1 from every ticket sold on this tour will be donated to them. Choose Love is doing whatever it takes to provide refugees and displaced people with everything from life-saving boats to food and legal advice. Their work has reached more than 1.8 million people and supported more than 250 community-based rapid action organizations across Europe, the Middle East and along the US-Mexico border. Everything they do is fueled by a vision of a world that chooses love and justice every day, for everyone.

DULUTH, Minn-. A new music recording studio may soon open in Duluth’s Hillside, but it hopes to provide an outlet for homeless and at-risk youth.

Life House Duluth has purchased a building just across 1st Ave which they call “The Imaginarium”.

They raised $20,000 at a mental health action concert last month.

They only need another $10,000 to turn the basement into a studio for the kids in their program to record songs, poetry, or any other recorded art form they want to perform for s ‘to express.

“Being homeless or trafficked creates a tremendous amount of trauma in someone’s life,” said Jordon Johnson, CEO of Life House.

“I think music and the arts are a great way to process some of what’s going on in anyone’s life, but especially our young people like, it’s a fruitful creative outlet,” a- he declared.

According to Johnson, music is already an important way for young people to share stories and experiences at their youth center on First Street.

Their celebration of success event Thursday at the DECC will also serve as a fundraiser for the recording studio.

William DuValliconic band leader CHAINED ALICEwill release his second solo album, “11.12.21 Live-In-Studio Nashville”June 10 via DVL records. The effort captures an explosive power trio performance recorded live to disc at the famed Welcome to Studio 1979 in Nashville on November 12, 2021. No “fixing” or remixing took place after the fact. It’s as supercharged, raw and exciting as it gets. The CD is housed in a beautiful six-fold gatefold digipak. The first 500 copies are autographed by Du Vall.

Du Vall talked about the making of “11.12.21 Live-In-Studio Nashville” as he sat backstage at the Academy Green Room in Dublin, Ireland, where his solo European tour kicked off on April 25 after two and a half years of postponement. William said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “It’s a live studio record, so it’s not like I’ve been in the studio for a month – it’s more like I’ve been in the studio for a night, and we We’ve cut live there directly into lacquer, which means you’re cutting directly into the plastic disc that’s going to be used to make your LP, so there’s no repairs of any kind to do; is just not possible. What you play is what you get. It’s basically like doing a live radio or TV show, only with the added technical pressure of someone having to cut a needle in hairspray live while you play. nobody spoiler – be it the lacquer engineer, the sound engineer or the musicians – everyone we have to start over.”

The official clip of “Landslide” from “11.12.21 Live-In-Studio Nashville” can be seen below. The visual was assembled by Roger Okamato from photos taken during the live album recording session by Madison Thorn.

Williamthe critically acclaimed first solo effort, “Only One”arrived in October 2019. The 11-track album showed Du Vallthe powerful voice of with nothing but an acoustic guitar to accompany it.

Unlike the multi-layered sonic assault, which makes up the bulk of his discography, “Only One” was as sparse and intimate as possible — part late-night confessional, part lounge gig. Like William described it at the time: “I felt the need to pull it all back. This album is strictly one vocal, one guitar. It reveals the very core of who I am as a singer, guitarist and songwriter. “

Three years ago, Du Vall Told Q104.3it is “Out of the Box” that he didn’t decide to make an album before having already recorded the first track, “Until the Light Guides Me Home”. “I had written it with the possible intention of giving it to someone else, and when I [had the song idea]it was spinning like a record in my head,” he explained. “It was one of those [quick] Songs. … It’s what we live for, and it doesn’t happen often enough. But when it does, you’re just like, “Okay, I’m in.” And you let things happen – get out of your own way. »

The initial recording session saw Du Vall demonstrating seven other tracks, all of which ended up on the “Only One” album.

before joining CHAINED ALICE in 2006, Du Vall was a member of punk rock bands CHAOS EMPTY CONSCIOUSNESS, NEON CHRIST, BLAST! and FINAL OFFER. Du VallThe long musical history of also includes COMES WITH THE FALL and CHAINED ALICE guitarist jerry cantrellsolo work.

Audio-Technica ATH-M40x

Professional-grade material in the ear pads and headband provides extra durability and comfort. The Audio-Technica ATH-M40x is a large headset with oval earcups, each housing a 40mm dynamic driver. Even those with larger ears will find the ATH-M40x comfortable, although the synthetic ear pads retain heat and aren’t the best for listeners wearing glasses.

The Audio-Technica ATH-M40x are not active noise canceling (ANC) headphones and require you to place the ear cushions properly around your ears to block out background noise. Passive isolation performance is what you would expect from headphones with synthetic ear pads. Accidental high-pitched sounds (6-8 kHz) such as the clinking of dishes or a baby crying are one-sixteenth of what they would be without headphones.

Audio Technica ATH-M20x

The ATH-M20x features 40mm dynamic drivers with rare-earth (neodymium) magnets and CCAW (Copper Clad Aluminum Wire) voice coils for quality sound reproduction at a competitive price. The ATH-M20x has a 9.8′ tethered cable that exits from the left side. This increases comfort and makes it easier to distinguish the different sides of the headphones.

The ATH-M20x are moderately comfortable. They don’t put too much pressure on your head, and the large ear cups fit most listeners’ ears. Thanks to the high-quality materials used in the ATH-M20x, the earphones balance comfort and resistance while offering improved sound and effective isolation. Equipped with 15° swivel ear cups, the ATH-M20x ensures a perfect fit.

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC700BT

Bluetooth wireless technology with built-in touch and slide controls on the earpiece to answer/end calls, control music and video playback, and adjust volume on connected devices. The foldable design makes the headset ideal for travel. On a full charge, the internal battery provides up to 25 hours of continuous use of Bluetooth wireless technology and noise canceling technology, and up to 1,000 hours of standby time.

QuietPoint active noise cancellation technology powered by a patented four-microphone multi-feedback system dramatically reduces ambient noise. 40mm speakers deliver high-fidelity audio reproduction. The right earbud is relatively indescribable, in terms of functionality, but the left earbud is where all the action is. At the bottom, you’ll get a MicroUSB port and an auxiliary port, along with a power switch. Noise cancellation is usually quite taxing on the batteries, but thankfully the headphones still offer decent battery life.

Audio-Technica ATH-M30x

The ATH-M30x uses a circumaural design that conforms to the ears for excellent sound isolation in noisy environments. This closed over-ear style is optimal for reducing bleeding and separating it from external sounds. The balanced comfort and resistance of the headphones provide improved sound and effective isolation. The Audio-Technica M30Xs have surprising audio fidelity for their price range, but have a poor soundstage due to their closed design.

The drivers and headphone design work together to deliver a fine-tuned sound signature for improved, more detailed mid-range definition. With a frequency response of 15Hz to 22kHz, the ATH-M30x can reproduce a full spectrum of tones. Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones (Black) – Headphone Case – 1/4″ TRS to 1/4″ TRS Headphone Extension Cable, 10 Feet – Photo4Less Black Cleaning Cloth.
