The Making of a Pop Danthology

This takes talent. And a lot of it! When looking around for some great pop mashups, we came across this video on YouTube: The mix and parts were put together extremely well in this mashup, and Daniel Kim even explains how he goes about putting together a project like this – which is extremely interesting! “Once a year, I try to make a seamless musical mix (“mash-up”) of the year’s top pop songs. This is not a quick and easy […]

What an SSD Can Do For Your System

Are you tired of a slow performing computer? Nothing is worse – I can assure you – than trying to work on a machine that is just…too…..slow….. But what can you do? If you’re not in the position to drop thousands on a new machine and dump the old, but still want to have a better machine to work with for your audio projects, the solution might be (relatively) simple. SSD. Solid State Drive. They’re fast, they’re incredible, and they’re […]

The Creative Trap of New Gear

New gear always seems like it can bring a wave of creativity to your work. But beware, this is actually the least creative time as a producer or engineer! Here’s why: Getting new plug-ins, guitars, gear, etc. is an exciting thing – and a necessary thing if you plan to get any better or diverse. But you should always keep in mind that new gear does not equal a burst in creativity. And why is that? Because chances are that […]

Diversifying – An audio guys video list

Hey all, Even though we focus on a lot of audio here at Multi-Platinum, I’ve found so many audio guys get more work if they have a working knowledge of shooting and editing video. Once upon a time, video was a *much* more expensive pursuit, with only cursory connections to the audio field. But now, with DSLR’s enabling amazing quality video, and software like Avid, Premier and Final Cut offering VERY familiar DAW style editing for video, it’s never been […]

Tony Maserati on Pensado’s Place

We mentioned yesterday about learning from the greats. Well, get ready to add another (long) video to your watch list! This is a Pensado’s Place episode featuring none other than legendary engineer Tony Maserati. This video is not only very informative, but it’s also very inspiring and gives a lot of ideas for mixing masterpieces! My favorite part of this video is about 7 minutes in, where the topic of using the sidechain of plug-ins comes up. This is extremely […]
