Who About This Catalogue This catalogue is intended to make life easy for you. Getting hold of the equipment you need is sometimes a daunting task and sometimes you might not know where to start, so rather than just listing endless product ranges with layers of heavy duty technical data, we’ve tried to de-clutter a little and talk in language we can all grasp. Alongside the articles interspersed throughout for some casual reading we’ve also written you a few more detailed super-handy buying guides for the larger topics and disciplines to give you a broader understanding of how things relate.

Why buy from us? All the goodies

A tailored service

We stock a HUGE range of products from all the top brands ­and we have the best possible relationships with all major suppliers (and a genuine desire to support the smaller, independent outfits) meaning we can get hold of pretty much anything. Just tell us your needs.

Every project is different and so is every customer. From the individual cable to the full scale studio overhaul or grand piano we’ll not only source what you need, but for whom you need it, at the price you need it, and for when you need it. Simple.

Trend Setters

We embrace the best elements of shopping online and shopping in store: we’ll match the lowest internet prices (and terms/warranties etc.) but we’ll also give you oneon-one advice and let you get your hands on the gear, so you know exactly what it is you’re buying.

Engineered to avoid twisting, kinking, and having any “physical memory”. Backed by a lifetime warranty. 891235 (5m, £8.33)

Jackson JS11 Dinky White 686862 £105 With humbucker pickups ideally suited for high gain requirements, this is the perfect guitar for budding young metal heads / rockers. • Rosewood Fingerboard, 22 jumbo frets • 2x Jackson high-output humbucker pickups • Volume and tone controls, pickup selector

The Nut supports and guides the string, and is usually made of plastic, ebony or ivory.

FRETS Frets divide up the neck of the guitar into little areas that across the length of a string, we perceive as spacing the notes 1 semitone apart. When you fret a string, you are essentially altering the length of that string, which correspondingly creates an incrementally higher or lower note.

A pickup is essentially a magnet. A coil of wire that, when a string is plucked, generates a magnetic flux caused by the vibrating strings above it. This signal is then output to the controls section and then into the amp.

Volume and tone controls allow us to fine tune the sound our pickups are generating, such as by balancing volume or reducing high frequencies to give a more mellow sound.

Acting as string terminators, The primary function of tuning pegs is to raise and lower the pitch of the strings.

PICKUPS

The shape of the body is primarily an aesthetic choice, but also has an impact on playability, and how the player responds to the instrument. The type of wood it’s made of affects weight, sustain, durability.

TIPS! ELECTRIC GUITARS

Aesthetics aside, all guitars serve the same purpose. However, small variations in components and materials have a huge impact on their suitability for certain styles and disciplines. Humbucker pickups offer ‘thick’ tones - great for rock and jazz - but single coils and P90s can be more versatile.

The modern electric bass guitar is a direct descendant of the double bass, the first prototype of which was about the size of a cello and featured a rudimentary pickup. These days when somebody talks about a bass, the mind instantly jumps to an image of an electric bass guitar, rather than it’s predecessor, the acoustic upright, which has been around since the 17th century. An experimental marketing product of major ‘30s companies such as Gibson, the instrument was conceived because the double bass was often being drowned out by the brass sections of jazz bands.

an important part of rock, blues, jazz, funk, reggae and countless other genres of popular music Rather tragically, double bass players often had to travel alone to gigs because of the size of their instruments, often getting lost en-route and

missing the show. The revolutionary new compact design meant that the bass player could travel with the rest of the group on the tour bus, where they could now suggest ‘hey, why don’t we play one of my songs’ and be immediately turfed out back onto the road. Perhaps the most iconic bass of them all is the Fender Precision - named so as the new-fangled frets on the instrument allowed the notes to be played with exactly that - precision. It was released in 1951 and is still by far the most popular body style, with everybody from Flea to Jaco Pastorious playing them. Released in 1960, The Fender Jazz (featuring two separate pickups as opposed to one split) also made a big impact on players and remains one of the industry staples. The pioneering work of forward looking manufacturers and the early players led to a surge of popularity in the modern bass guitar, making it known as it is today - an important part of rock, blues, jazz, funk, reggae and countless other genres of popular music.

Previously the domain of only heavy metal players like Fieldy of Korn and Les Claypool of Primus fame - the 5 string bass, with it’s extra low ‘B’ string is a must have even for modern pop players - the extended range adding significantly more power and emotion when used tactically. The use of 5 string bass goes back as far as 1965,when Fender released the Bass V - with the extra string at first actually being a higher C above the G. Consequently the instrument had a shorter scale with less frets. Although famously used by John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, the Bass V didn’t really take off until it was decided to drop beneath the Low E, where you could really shake the house down.

GUITAR AMPS

There’s an amp out there for just about every type of playeR From those looking for more gain than you can shake a stick at to those who wish to dabble with effects, here are a few common features explained to help you get the sound you need.

Gain Control

Effects

Digital or Valve?

The gain on an amp essentially controls how distorted the sound is, from a little bit of crunch that works great on blues / indie tracks to full on heavy metal onslaught

Commonly found effects on amps are reverb, delay and tremolo - these are called time based effects or modulation. Reverb and delay both allow the player to create new sonic landscapes that are ideally suited for lead playing, and can really round off the edges of slightly more jagged sounds.

Many amps these days are digital modelling amps, in that they emulate the sound of classic models through digital circuitry and chips. The great advantage here is that you can have dozens of sounds all in one unit, so they are super versatile. Valve amps on the other hand with their analogue circuitry have a much more pleasing, rich and warm sound and as such are sought after by the discerning player / used more often in recording situations.

EFFECTS LIKE REVERB AND DELAY AllOW THE PlAYER TO CREATE NEW SONIC LANDSCAPES EQ controls These are really important to sculpting your sound. Most amps have a bass, middle and treble control that allow you to boost or attenuate certain frequency ranges of the signal from your instrument to sit in the mix nicely.

Master volume Does what it says on the tin, once you’ve balanced the volume between channels on your amp (if this is a feature for you) you can then control the overall volume to taste.

Headphone output Practice in peace! There’s nothing more offputting than a room full of guitarists all riffing away (in different keys) at the maximum possible volume. Isolate the problem at the source and give them some cans.

Combo or head/cab? Combo amps pretty much dominate the market as they are so convenient to transport and come in every size from the dinkiest table top model to 4x12 touring grade models. For large scale performances and recording situations however - having a large cabinet with interchangeable heads can be very useful, as players can bring their own head and just plug in and you can REALLY crank the volume.

BASS AMPS

The bassist plays a critical role in any contemporary outfit, and making sure you can give them the right sound is vital. Here are a few things to consider when looking to compare bass amps. Cabinet size

Weight

Overdrive

Low frequencies have very long wavelengths and as such, the bigger the speaker the more effortlessly these frequencies can be represented. 1x15 combos or cabinets are the most popular with gigging musicians but a 12” or even 8” can be absolutely great at lower volumes and in smaller spaces. Often an extension cabinet can be implemented to help shift more air.

Old bass amps (especially the heads) used to weigh an absolute tonne, but with advances in technology and the proliferation of digital modelling amps these days you’d be amazed at just how lightweight and portable they can be.

Overdriven bass guitar is a very desirable effect (and would you believe it has been around since the early 60’s!) Made popular these days by acts such as Muse and Jamiroquai, when used (and controlled) it can really add a lot of power to your sound.

you’d be amazed at just how lightweight and portable they can be

Tone controls Although the bass guitar is primarily concerned with the low end, you’d be amazed how much a little treble boost or nudge in the mid range can really bring out the best in your sound.

Compression Bass guitarists are famous for being lost within a mix both live and in the studio (See Metallica circa the Jason Newstead era), often treated as second class after the all-dominating guitarist (oh, those pesky guitarists). One brilliant way to ensure you can cut through and be heard is by using compression. This essentially squishes the signal to make the quiet parts and tails of a signal as loud as the loud bits and transients.

Number of Speakers Basically, the bigger the speaker the better that speaker can represent the lower frequencies. Low frequencies / large wavelengths require physical distance to fully develop within, so a 15” speaker gets things off to a flying start. That said, because the speaker is physically moving in and out with compressions and rarefactions that change the air pressure, which creates the waveform (hurray for science!) and because speakers have to move A LOT to represent low frequencies, sometimes higher frequencies can be mis-represented or blurred in a single speaker setup. This is when having a dedicated additional speaker for the highs and mids or even just to share the load can be useful, giving a much clearer sound.

STAFF Emmett Christie

A bass amp has to work hard, it is amplifying some serious low end, and it has to compete with guitarists and drummers who insist on making so much noise. The bass is what locks the band together, it’s the most important instrument (that’s just a fact) and it’s what makes people dance, but you need to make sure you can be heard. I remember struggling with a huge amp, that was comically oversized compared to anyone else in the band for a few years, but it meant it lasted me a long time and I never had a gig that it couldn’t manage. Luckily technology has moved on in the past two decades, so now you can get amps that are loud enough for any gig, but light enough and compact enough for your bedroom. You should be able to match the volume of a drummer if you plan on gigging, a balanced DI output will be really useful for recording, an effects loop could be really important if you like to experiment with sounds and maybe your family would appreciate a headphone socket for those late night practice sessions.

The wonder of guitar pedals is that whatever effect you may be hankering for or maybe missing from your amp, there’s a box that does the trick (there’s even one that recreates the sound of singing Japanese Anime characters .... of course) How do I power them all?

It’s true, there are a lot - but they all have a function. To narrow it right down and keep things simple the most commonly found types of pedals are tuners, distortion, wah, reverb and modulation.

Most pedals run off either a 9v battery or external power supply. Often there can be variations between voltages which can make cabling a bit of a nightmare but fortunately we supply power bricks that can handle different power requirements from a range of pedals simultaneously.

What order should I connect them in? There are a few different variations but the general consensus on the way to connect a series of pedals is to have the tuner first, then the wah, followed by Distortion, delay / modulation, EQ then reverb. If you have a selection to hand - I’d encourage you to experiment with a few different orders and see if you can identify any variances between set-ups.

I’d encourage you to experiment with a few different orders

Standard 50cm Patch Cable Six Pack (angle jacks)

885226 £56

260095 £5

Flexible distortion pedal capable of producing blended overdrive/ distortion sounds. • Perfect for both rhythm and lead playing • Level, Tone, Drive and Color controls for precise tonal shaping • Boss 5-year warranty

For connecting effects processors, sound modules, pedals etc. Available in either black or coloured insulation.

A great way of saving money and experimenting with different tones is to try a multi effects pedal, which offers a plethora of different sounds that can be quickly recalled, modified and saved for future use. If you’re looking for a specific sound, we recommend a single stomp box.

Types of effect Guitar effects processes are essentially either corrective (EQ and compression) or creative (modulation, wah etc). Effects can fall into either time based processes which manipulate the signal over a set period of time (eg reverb or delay, where the signal is repeated to create ambience and new soundscapes) or dynamic processes such as compression and expression pedals, where the actual volume of the waveform is manipulated to create the desired effect.

The modulation effect Chorus does an excellent job of thickening up your sound, especially on clean channels and who can count the number of classic guitar solos that utilise the famous Cry Baby Wah Wah (this is essentially an agressive EQ filter that is swept up and down the frequency spectrum with one’s foot). For the live performer - compression, EQ and perhaps most importantly, tuner pedals are perhaps the most important and omnipresent examples out there.

Acoustic Guitars

It’s true - there are many things to consider when buying a new acoustic guitar, but we’ve refined it to a few key areas for you to easily digest. SHAPE

Solid top or Laminate?

This is possibly the most important attribute for the young player. The classic dreadnought and jumbo shapes offer a lovely full sound but sometimes a smaller orchestral, super folk or parlour style instrument is more suitable for those just starting out or with little fingers.

Cheaper guitars are made from laminated pieces of wood that are compressed together and heated to make it quicker and easier for the luthier (often a robot) to bend into shape. Hard tops (one solid piece of wood) offer much better tonal response, projection and resonance. From around about the £250 mark you’ll start to see guitars with a solid top.

every guitarist has their own preference

Tuning and Intonation How well a guitar holds its tuning is of course, vitally important, and to be honest just about every guitar is capable of at least this. Almost as important as the tuning however is the intonation of the instrument - this is how well the guitar holds it’s tuning as we move up the fretboard. The tiny tolerances that are involved in the mathematics of the guitar (the exact position of each frets, positioning of the bridge, the angle of the headstock etc) mean that even the slightest misallignment can have noticable consequences once we get up to the higher frets. Essentially, higher end guitars are often hand made and have had a real human being check for quality throughout the production process, and factory machined isntruments may

not quite be so refined. Also, lower end models often don’t react well to switching between alternate tunings.

Do I need a Pickup? When it comes to concert time it’s very useful to be able to plug straight into the desk rather than having to balance precariously near a microphone. Although one can always install a soundhole pickup at a later date, many guitars feature a built in pickup which allows contol over EQ and volume - and often also feature a tuner (super handy!)

Action The action is the height that the strings lie relative to the fret board along the neck. Different guitars have different actions, some low, some high - and every guitarist has their own preference, but generally you want consistency.

Aesthetics Crucially - does it look pretty? Don’t worry, once all the practicalities are out of the way we are allowed to indulge ourselves here ... (the really expensive ones even smell amazing!)

What strings do I need? The most common gauge of strings on an acoustic guitar is gauge 12. If you’re looking for an easier time and pressing down onto the strings is a little difficult for you, we recommend guage 11 or even 10 for the really daintily fingered. For those who want fuller sounding chords and even more girth from their instrument try guage 13 and if you’re a bit of a sadist (or working in drop tunings) go for 14’s (just don’t try and bend the strings, you’ll thank me!)

PIANOS & KEYBOARDS

Digital pianos have been a popular choice for use in the classroom or stage for many years now. With no need for tuning or maintenance, they also have numerous other practical advantages. In the past, these digital benefits could have meant compromising on the sound quality or feel. Fortunately this is no longer the case! New technologies have seriously enhanced the sound quality to the point that some instruments will accurately replicate every behavioural nuance from an acoustic piano. The keys and action have been engineered to feel responsive and incredibly authentic. Pianists of all abilities can

play with the same level of technique and expression they are used to from a traditional instrument. Today’s digital pianos are far more than just a practical solution, they are a joy to play! Various interactive features for learning, teaching and practicing and an extensive range to suit all budgets, mean that there has never been a better time to buy a digital piano.

What is the piano for? I know it seems a fairly obvious question but it’s worth considering what its primary function will be. Will it be in a classroom all the time or is it something you want to move around? Will it ever be used live or is it purely for teaching?

Today’s digital pianos are far more than just a practical solution What does it need to look like? Digital pianos come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some traditional and some anything but.

How much space have you got and how big is the room it will live in? This is an important consideration. Larger pianos tend to have larger speakers built in and will project the sound across a busy classroom where as a smaller instrument may require additional amplification.

WWW.REDDOGMUSIC.CO.UK

What else would you like it to do? Don’t forget, digital pianos offer a whole host of additional features. Recording performances to a USB stick or iPad, designing your own piano sound and playing along with favourite songs wirelessly are just a few of the features found in some of these instruments.

How much do you want to spend? You get more for your money than ever before with Roland digital pianos and they offer exceptional value at all levels. Cost is usually related to how the piano feels, sounds and looks rather than extra gadgets or features. Whatever your budget, we guarantee to deliver an instrument that will bring years and years of musical enjoyment! Taking some time to think through these sorts of questions will help you form a picture of your individual requirements and how the piano will fit into your own environment. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at what’s available.

Digital pianos come in all sorts of shapes and sizes We are proud to be specialists in Roland pianos, whose range consists of three main areas: Upright and grand pianos These models are designed to resemble the appearance of their acoustic counterparts. Some are a little smaller and most are available in a range of finishes. Slimline pianos A great alternative to a traditional upright digital, these ultra slim pianos still feel and sound amazing, just with a smaller footprint Portable and stage pianos Ranging from great, low cost models to high end, road ready professional stage instruments these portable pianos are versatile, light and packed with loads of useful features.

It may sound daft but above everything else, whether it’s a piano, keyboard or MIDI controller you’re looking at, the feel of the keys is the most important part of your buying choice. It’s what makes you want to interact with the instrument and its the part that both controls and interprets what you put into your music and what you get back in response.

Synthesisers Synthesisers have played a pivotal role in shaping music for well over over 50 years now. Conceived in the early 20th century, pioneered in the post war era and dominating the music industry in the 80’s, they’re now making a massive comeback. With the dawn of the transistor age / end of the dependence on the vacuum tube and alongside advances in the fields of computing, radio and broadcast to name but a few, the synthesiser has been evolving. It’s absolutely amazing to see that today these units are no longer the sole territory of the super rich or engineering geniuses. For as little as £30 you can access a whole new realm of music making and start to gain an understanding of how manipulating basic waveforms can open an infinite realm of sound.

What is a synthesiser?

Oscillators

Filters

In a nutshell a synthesiser is an instrument that generates electrical signal and manipulates waveforms in any one of many different ways (subtractive, additive, wavetable, FM or granular systhesis to name but a few) creating new timbres or even imitating other instruments. Often implementing a keyboard, they can also be controlled by a sequencer or other instrument controller, through the standard MIDI protocol. Here are a few common principles and components of the synthesiser - almost every commercially available synthesiser and music synthesis software package operates using these basic principles.

The piece of electronic circuit that produces a periodic oscillating electronic signal, often either a sine or square wave. An LFO (low frequency oscillator) is an oscillator that generates a signal beneath 20Hz (the lowest sound we can hear) and is generally used to control other modules within a synthesizer. LFOs are like little robots that turn knobs back and forth for you.

Filters are, generally speaking, tools for manipulating signals. A filter allows some frequencies to pass through unattenuated while significantly attenuating others. Low pass, band pass, band reject and high pass filters are common examples.

Envelopes The sound envelope (comprising of Attack, Sustain, Decay and Release, or ADSR) are defining characteristics of any sound - the initial transients, length and tail of a waveform which (together with actual frequency content) make that sound unique. In sound synthesis an envelope generator is employed that allows us to manipulate these parameters within a signal path to vary the resulting timbre and create new sonic landscapes.

Transistors Transistors are the building blocks of electronic circuitry, In synthesis a transistor is essentially used to amplify signals and and switch control signals. Transistors are much lighter, stronger than vaccum tubes and do not require time to warm up, and as such are used extensively in commercial audio products and recording equipment.

Capacitors A capacitor is a storage centre, that stores electrical charge, consisting of one or more pairs of conductors separated by an insulator. It fills up, empties and refills thousands of times a second to produce what we would call the output signal. Working together with resistors - the frequency of this output can be controlled.

Modular Synthesis

Modular set-ups let you create an electronic instrument that is truly unique to you. What is a modular synthesiser?

a couple of envelopes and LFOs. You could build a monster synth, with 8 oscillators, 4 filters, and more modulators than you can shake Keith Emerson at.

A modular synthesiser is simply a collection of modules that you can put together yourself, based on what functionality you need, and then wire up yourself as the patch requires. Or, just as often, plugging cables in randomly because it’s just plain fun to experiment and see where you end up.

You could build a drum machine, an outboard effects unit for processing audio from your DAW, or you could construct an instrument that offers functionality and generates sounds that you just couldn’t get from any existing off-the-shelf synthesiser. In short, with the range of modules on available, you can create a unique instrument: the only synth on the planet that offers just that range of sounds. And it’s yours.

A modular synthesiser can be whatever you want it to be

What do I need to build A modular synth?

a fantastic tool for learning even the basics of synthesis

To get started, you’ll need a case and a power supply. Many cases come with one already in there, so you’re ready to start adding modules straight away! One thing to be aware of though, is that you’ll be attaching modules to the power supply in the case using a ribbon cable. It does matter which way round you plug this in!

Sound tricky? Well, it can be intimidating for a few minutes if you’re not familiar with the basics of synthesis, but there is nothing magical or supernatural about it, and spending some time with a modular can also be a fantastic tool for learning even the basics of synthesis.

If you’re into a bit of DIY and want to put your own stamp on your modular, you could get a basic case and customise your own. The power supply contains -12 and +12 Volt lines, and you need to make sure that these are connected the right way to the modules. Fortunately, many modules and cables are designed with connectors that can only be plugged in one way round, some offer built-in protection, and there is also a handy stripe on the ribbon that (usually!) refers to the -12 side, but it always pays to check before you plug your latest acquisition in!

A modular synthesiser can be whatever you want it to be. You could design your ideal ‘conventional’ synth, with two oscillators, a filter, an amplifier and

Onto the modules. If you’re looking to design your own ‘traditional’ synth, chances are you’ll want two or three oscillators (VCOs), a mixer, a filter (VCF), an

amplifier (VCA), an ADSR-type envelope generatoror two, and some LFOs. You may also want a MIDI input module if you want to control your new synth from your DAW, and output modules are handy for getting the audio back into your studio.

You’ll also want A healthy couple of hand-fulls of patch cables! Where modular gets interesting though, is that why just mix your oscillators and send them into a single filter? With a modular synth, you could add another couple of filters with different characters, send each oscillator into its own filter and mix after that. And that is just the beginning…

Controller Keyboards

How do they work? Controller keyboards have to be one of the most powerful and essential pieces of studio equipment you can aquire for your setup. From inputting musical data to triggering samples and helping with mixing down, they’re purpose built to improve workflow and liberate you from otherwise complicated MIDI patching and routing. Here’s a few things to keep an eye out for when considering which model is right for you.

Keys

Faders

Some people require feather touch keys for ease and speed of use but often for the likes of a trained pianist - only fully weighted, hammer action keys will suffice.

Although the same could be achieved with a pot, a fader to us most naturally can be assigned to control the volume of a track (or of course any other controlable parameter) again saving time with not having to point and click with the mouse!

Pads

they’re purpose built to improve workflow

Playing rhythmically with your favourite virtual drum instrument on a keyboard can sometimes be a little, un-satisfying. Fortunately these days most MIDI controller keyboards offer a few nice and squidgey velocity sensitive pads for you to hit, much better. Some even double as an integrated step sequencer - cor blimey!

Pots Having a few onboard potentiometers (check me out eh?!) can be really handy when it comes to controlling or automating panning and effects, much quicker than using the mouse. Infinite rotary faders are the most useful as they can be mapped to control different parameters over multiple presets without effecting the values of the previous parameter.

What size? Most models come in 25, 49, 61 and even 88 note variations, so if space is an issue or you need the full range - not a problem.

RECORDING BUYERS GUIDE No longer solely the realm of scientists in labcoats, the recording studio and it’s practices are now a key skillset for the modern musician to grasp.

The recording studio can be daunting, but not only is time spent in the studio some of the most fun you can possibly have as a musician, it’s a training ground for some of the most important industry skills you can aquire - be it as engineer, producer, composer, performer, foley artist or beyond. The studio is an umbrella term for a collective of independent signal processing stages in the recording process, from the microphones and patchbays to the computer, mixing console, outboard equipment, speakers, amplifiers, controllers and more. We’ll address each sub section as they appear in the following pages but here’s a few tips on some over-arching studio concepts.

Signal Flow Each stage in the recording process affects the next and is dependent on the success of the preceeding process, and in the studio how we connect 2 of these stages together is generally via a cable, and lot’s of them! We’ve all been there, mid way through a time sensitive session and somehow, we just can’t get the vocal track to sound. The natural reaction is sometimes to panic and start blindly

ACOUSTICALLY TREATING YOUR RECORDING ROOM CAN DO WONDERS FOR YOUR RESULTS pulling cables out and start re-patching, but you’d be amazed at how often this just makes things worse! So take a deep breath and think - signal flow. Where is the signal starting from? Is the mic connected properly? Does it have phantom power? Is it going to the correct input on the pre-amp? Is the pre-amp plugged into the right input on the

desk? Does the computer know from which channel it is to expect signal from on the desk? Is anything else solo’d? Is an inactive plugin holding up events? Ah yes of course, the track wasn’t record enabled ... doh!

a rest, get a cup of tea and come back to it with fresh ears, you’ll thank me for this soon - ear fatigue is a killer in studio land, after a while you simply stop listening and start just hearing, which is dangerous when the quality of your end product is at stake. Now we’re safely in the motions of the

Room treatment There’s a gadget for most situations these days from microphones with hyper cardiod pickup patterns that ommit background noise to plug-ins that surgically remove unwanted spillage or EQ’s that add / remove more of any frequency you may wish. Sometimes however, it’s good to nip problems in the bud at source. Acoustically treating your recording room can do wonders for your results, especially when you likely need your space to be multi-purpose. A strategically placed bass trap in the corner can stop unwanted standing waves and diffusers of the ceiling prevent pesky flutter echo. Place some foam panelling on the rear wall of your control room to reign in the focus on your monitoring and hey, plonking down a funky carpet not only gives the place a vibe but deadens the room nicely for tracking drums / guitar amps.

Approaching the Mix So, the session is over and it’s time to start mixing .... WAIT! That’s right, down tools - go home, have

EXPERIMENT WITH A FEW DIFFERENT STRATEGIES mix itself, we’re operating in a landscape of infinite possibilities - so experiment with a few different strategies. How you begin to mix a track often has a huge affect with direction of the overall session - we all have our preferences of instrument, I’m a guitarist but I always am drawn to open up the drums first, then bass, to get a solid foundation. Think of which instruments are the most important to the song, the hook, the riff, and try working on these first.

RECORDING BUYERS GUIDE CONTINUED...

AN EXCELLENT TACTIC IS TO FREQUENTLY CHANGE LISTENING VOLUMES, IT FORCES YOU TO RE-CALIBRATE YOUR SENSES

Reference tracks! Mastering, the final stage in the recording process, which is essentially tonal balancing and volume maximising for the intended format, is thought of as a dark art amongst many circles. Many mix engineers shy away from it and it certainly does involve a different set of tools - and skills. One of the best pieces of advice I can offer you is to make sure that when you master you use several reference tracks to compare your own work to. It’s very easy to go off on a tangent and end up a mile off target. Also make sure you vigilantly meter throughout the mastering process, especially when mastering in the box. Overshoot 0dB and you’re in digital distortion land whch is not good at all!

Mix Volume Louder = better! Of course! No ... don’t be fooled by high listening levels, they’ll impress the band maybe but once they’ve left the control room, bring them back down. An excellent tactic is to frequently change listening volumes (even when you feel you’re right in the zone) it forces you to re-calibrate your senses and gives you a whole new perspective.

MASTERING IS THOUGHT OF AS A DARK ART IN MANY CIRCLES

WHAT GOES WHERE?

SOUND MAKERS MICS SIGNAL PROCESSORS

INTERFACE SOFTWARE HEADPHONES

Signal processing There’s no absolute rules in recording and there are often 2 opposite approaches to every technique. A primary example is whether to EQ before you compress or vice-versa. EQ’ing before compression affects the way the compressor reacts to the incoming signal (such as removing the bottom end from a guitar track to allow the compressor to focus on the more detailed frequency content) and EQ’ing after compression gets in and around the signal deeper, but makes surgical EQ’ing slightly more fiddly.

RECORDING MUSIC

MONITORS

Team Work! A final piece of advice is, work together! Having a fresh pair of ears (and importantly the ability to take onboard feedback) can be all you need to get you out a rut, and delegating tasks can be a very wise descision too - if you’re involved at every stage in the process it’s easy to get too personally involved and protective of your work, which leads to delays, arguements and missed deadlines!

There’s few steadfast rules to recording, but there are some guidelines to follow to avoid potential disaster! 1) Before booting up your interface, check to make sure any power amplifiers/speakers connected are turned off. 2) Before unplugging any inputs, make sure your gain pot is turned right down. 3) Before plugging in (or unplugging) any ribbon or condenser microphones make sure that phantom power is switched off... if left on, the surge can damage both speakers and mic. Following these simple guidelines will help you get the most from your equipment, maximising it’s lifespan and preventing blown speakers, and ear-drums!

The bit depth we record at refers to the number of possible different representations of volume we can represent in a recorded signal (essentially the dynamic range of our material) Think of a ladder, it has fixed positions, you can be at point A, B or C, but never in-between. Our computer recordings are digital, we have absolute fixed values, and there-for - like the ladder. A grassy slope however is analogue, we can be at any point on this slope between the top and the bottom. Our sound source is analogue, it has an infinite number of volumes between it’s lowest and highest peak. By increasing the bit-depth we essentially ‘add more rungs’ to our ladder, giving us incrementally more possible representations of volume, however still absolute and fixed.

MICROPHONES There’s a microphone for every application, and all mics are suitable for a range of uses.

Choosing the right microphone can be a daunting task. If you’re new to this feld of practice and feel a little confused don’t worry, that’s natural. Here’s a brief over-view of a few fundamentals and if you need more help / guidance - we have several studio engineers / producers amongst our ranks who would be more than happy to assist, just get in touch!

Dynamic microphones

Pickup Pattern

To boil it down, if the mic is for live application or for recording very loud sound sources such as guitar amps or drums, you need a dynamic microphone. A dynamic mic is essentially a magnet that can tolerate very high SPL’s (Sound Pressure Levels) without flinching. These mics are usually ruggedly built and designed to be hand held (and mis-handled)

You’ll often see the term pickup or ‘polar’ pattern being banded about. This is the direction that the microphone is responsive from. The majority of microphones are cardiod in nature in that they pick up from the front in loosely a heart shaped pattern (hence the name) but bi directional (from front and rear - perfect for recording multiple backing vocalists) and omnidirectional (from 360 degrees - great for recording whole ensembles or capturing room ambience) are also common. Often microphones have the ability to switch between and blend these pickup patterns, making them super versatile for a recording session that requires flexibility.

Condensor mics are tonally and dynamically more repsonsive Condensor microphones If you’re recording - the chances are you need a condensor mic, 95% of the mic’s that you find in a recording studio will be this type. They’re much more sensitive than their dynamic cousins and as such usually are not meant to be handled, but they are both tonally and dynamically more repsonsive and as such, are perfect for recording.

Other types Their are a few other types of microhone on the market, each with it’s own typical use. Ribbon mics give a great ‘vintage’ warmth (or rather, not overly bright sound) and valve mic’s can really add a lot of colour to your signal chain, filling in those cracks nicely. Boundary / electret mics are great for capturing low-end detail and a recent addition - USB mics, allow you to plug straight into your computer.

USB mics, allow you to plug straight into your computer what size do I need? Think of a microphone like a speaker with its wires switched round - the lower the frequencies the sound source picks up the larger the diaphragm of the mic you need to pick it up in full depth, hence why small pencil mics may be ill suited for recording upright bass but great for ukulele. Did you know to capture the full girth of the sound the BBC actually often impliment an old loudspeaker with the wires reversed to record kick drum.

Linda Jarvis In a nutshell studio (condensor) microphones are tonally and dynamically more responsive than their dynamic counterparts (but are much more sensitive so need careful handling). Suitable for a vast array of applications, they’re as useful on a vocal as they are a cello, acoustic guitar, guitar cab, or choir. Just don’t put them inside a drum!

TIPS! STUDIO MICS

Stereo microphone techniques are hugely important not only to curriculum but to getting professional recording results with many sound sources. Although wasted on bagpipes (as I discovered recently) acoustic guitars, choirs, drums pianos and beyond all sound wonderful when mic’d in stereo. Try experimenting with XY coincident, Spaced pair and even MS arrangements and see how it can open up the sound, giving depth, space and realism.

recording MonitorS

speakers come in all shapes and sizes, WITH features almost as broad as their price range - let’s explore! At the end of the day, after all our computer based processing has been completed, the material we’ve lovingly captured and crafted needs to be transformed back from a bunch of 1s and 0s into an analogue waveform and fired out of speakers into our ears so we can hear it. Now, we need to make sure you have speakers that suit the user, the music and the room - and although there are many to choose from, finding the right model for your setup isn’t as difficult as you might think; let us demystify things for you.

I need fancy ones, no?!?!

Flat or flattery?

What’s a crossover?

Studio monitors, together with headphones are reference points that help you to triangulate your sound and THERE IS NO ONE POINT OF REFERENCE that will tell you EXACTLY how it is. Music is subjective and so is the listening experience, so rejoice - you don’t neccesarily need to spend £50,000 to be in the picture, in fact I’d most definitely say it’s more important to have a few different points of reference to give you a more accurate idea of where your mix stands.

Studio speakers can crudely be placed in either of 2 camps, those that exagerate or hype the signal somewhat to give an impressive, if slightly blurred, sound and those that try and tell you how it is by being flatter and more transparent. Both have their merits (there’s no shame in impressing clients with the big bassy speakers) and sometimes listening on something less distracting can help you focus.

When you task a speaker with handling a full range of frequencies (20Hz to 20,000Hz being our audible frequency range, but many speakers work well outwith these limits) you may find that although low frequencies are represented fine and dandy, highs may be struggling to poke through or mids seem cloudy. So - a crossover splits the range into managable chunks and tasks a seperate driver (some have 2, 3 or even 4 drivers) and takes the strain right off. Play to your strengths and all that!

Music is subjective and so is the listening experience

Active or Passive To cut a long story short, unless you have an old power amplifier that you really want to show off there’s arguably no point looking at passive. 99.9% of what’s available on the market these days are active speakers (as in they have their own power modules built in) - requiring only a balanced (or unbalanced) XLR / Jack / RCA feed from your desk / interface which is infinitely more practical.

What size? Essentially, the bigger the driver in a speaker the easier time that speaker will have representing lower frequencies. Bass frequencies have very long wavelengths and require physical distance to fully develop in a room, so if you’re working with dance music or drop-tuned heavy metal, 7 or 8 inch speakers may be advisable. That said, you’d be amazed at what the smaller speakers of 6,5,4 even 3 inch drivers are capable of representing. Basically - smaller room, smaller speakers!

Do I need a sub? YES because they are awesome. But seriously, you may not. The main advantage of a sub is that we have a much fuller, more present and ‘mono’ bass (stereo bass can cause issues in untreated rooms) which will give you an idea of what your mix will sound like on a much bigger system (like in a club) - but 7 and 8 inch drivers on main monitors are more than capable of shifting enough air to make your boots shake and sometimes to keep the neighbours onside, we need to do without (or at least have a bypass switch ready to hand!)

Do I need room /treatment? As I alluded to before, listening is not an exact science. Speakers will react differently in different rooms and sometimes DRASTIC improvements can be made to the clarity of your speakers by taking the simplest steps. Basic monitor pads can decouple your monitors from surrounding surfaces and prevent bass exaggeration, and stands can get them to the right height to make sure you are listening in the sweetspot.

HEADPHONES the saviour of the modern classroom?

Headphones come in many different shapes and sizes, but really there are only a few fundamental types. There’s the very popular circumaural and supra-aural style that most studio engineers and DJs use and the discreet earbud style for both consumer level music devices and high level IEM (In ear monitoring) systems for the live musician. There’s also only a few distinctions to be made within these so here goes!

Circum-aural Circumaural headphones completely cover your ears and isolate against any external noise.

Supra-aural Supra-aural headphones sit ON your ears rather than around them and offer less protection from bleed and outside noise, but are lighter. These can for example be better for DJs who don’t actually want to be fully isolated from the sound in the room, but still need to hear what’s coming through the headphones.

low end is contained within the cup of the headphone and does not escape.

Open Back Open back headphones are often preferred by people making critical mix descisions (especially when the mix is near completion) as they do not colour the sound quite as much as their closed back counterparts, with ventillation allowing for a more natural flow of air. Be careful checking bass levels with open back headphones though as they can prove inconsistent (just open up your main monitors again to double check).

looking for headphones to use with a portable player or laptop, stick to the range of 16 – 32 ohms; High-End Headphones Favor High Impedance - the advantages of higher impedance being a more sophisticated coil can be used in the driver (more winds) so a better overall sound and reduced distortion. Battery powered devices don’t work well with high impedance headphones.

Earbuds To be blunt, cheap earbuds are nasty BUT it’s how your typical consumer will be listening to the finished article so it’s important to check your mix on these too.

Fancy models

Headphones come in many different shapes and sizes

If you’re going to be wearing headphones for prolonged periods of time, consider your comfort. Higher end models have more adjustable bands and feature better cushioning pads and longer cables that allow you to move around more freely, not to mention are made of better quality components that will last longer. Rotating speakers are also super handy for vocalists and DJs alike.

Closed Back

Impedance

Closed back headphones are excellent for situations where you wish to avoid leakage, such as a recording session where you need to avoid spillage into the mic (like the classic click track problem!) For checking the bass levels of a mix this type are brilliant as they are so isolating from the outside world. Often much louder than open back models, they offer a bigger bass reproduction because the

Headphones range in impedance from 16 Ohms to 600 Ohms. So, which impedance is best, and WHY DOES IT MATTER? It depends on what you plan to plug them into - headphone sources generally put out very different amounts of power into different headphone impedances. If you’re

DRUMS

From affordable starter sets to professional session kits both acoustic and electronic - we’ve got them all.

ELECTRONIC DRUMS Alesis DM Lite 172849 £183 Great for quiet practice and for beginners, the Alesis DM Lite electronic perfect, everything included starter kit.

The bass drum, snare drum, toms, cymbals and hardware comprise all basic drum kits, whatever the model.

What Size

Kick and Snare

Pedals

For a basic setup or for a beginner - a 4 piece kit comprising bass, snare, tom and hats are all you need (hey - it worked for the Beatles!) Taking up a minimum of space, it’s easily portable, and is well suited to jazz, blues, and rock styles. 5, 6, 7 and above piece kits offer a much bigger tonal range and are suited to rock, fusion, contemporary, and metal styles.

The 2 most fundamental drums in most styles of music. Most rock / metal drummers prefer at least a 20” kick drum but for jazz and roots music you can go down as small as 16”. Snare drums are 14” in diamater and traditionally made of either metal or wood. Metal snare drums, made of steel, brass, aluminum, and other alloys, offer an exceptionally bright, cutting tone. Many drummers prefer the warmer, mellower sound that a wood snare offers.

Kick drum pedals range from simple, inexpensive single-pedal models to the sophisticated double pedals favored by rock, metal, and fusion drummers.

drummers often use different sticks for different styles of music Cymbals Materials Many kinds of woods are used in drum manufacturing, and all have unique sound qualities, Maple being the most popular - but you’ll often find Birch, Oak, Mahogany and Basswood to name but a few others. Drum shells are made of several plies, or layers of wood and to generalise, drums with more plies have a brighter sound and those with fewer plies have a lower fundamental note.

Cymbals are an essential component of any drum set. Most drum sets come without cymbals, so you’ll want to find cymbals that fit the music you like to play and the set that you’ve chosen. The main types of cymbals are ride cymbals, crash cymbals, hi-hat cymbals and splash and china cymbals. Cast cymbals are poured from liquid metal and have complex, rich harmonics that are very desireable to the ears and sheet cymbals (more common) are cut from large sheets of metal and give fairly uniform results. Many jazz players favor darker, more complex cymbal sounds, while rock drummers generally lean toward a brighter, louder sound that cuts through the mix.

Hardware Unless you are purchasing a shell pack, a drum set will come with the hardware necessary to assemble and play it. Essential drum hardware includes the bass drum pedal, snare stand, hi-hat stand, and cymbal stands.

Alesis Nitro 726247 £283 An eight piece kit with a cracking module at an incredible price, the Alesis Nitro is an electronic drum set game changer!

Drum sticks come in as many sizes and shades as the players who use them, and drummers often use different sticks for different styles of music. In general, heavier sticks such as 2Bs are favored for rock and R&B styles where more volume is needed. Lighter sticks like 7As tend to be favored for jazz, folk, acoustic, and other styles that require less volume. The numerical part signifies the circumference of the stick, the lower the number, the larger the circumference, and the letters are A for ‘Orchestral’ and B for ‘Band’.

we have everything you need to hit, scrape, shake, tinkle and generally make a racket at Red Dog Music.

Kids percussion Early Years Tambourine 003641 £16

Wooden Hooped 6” Tambourine As humans, we are very perceptive of and very responsive to rhythm - the first music we ever made is widely believed to have been percussive in nature, and it has a fundamental role, arguably defining, what music is: organised sound. Our ealiest percussion instruments go back thousands of years to around 6000 B.C and were used to send signals, aiding communication and marking territory (what’s changed?!)

Did you know

The word ‘rhythm’ derives from the Greek word ‘Rhein’ meaning to flow or stream. It’s believed that we are predisposed to liking rhythms because we are so well versed from such an early age, starting with our mother’s heartbeat! And even right down to the cellular level, neurons fire signals rhythmically and different cells in our body communicate in cyclical, repeating patterns.

As humans, we are very perceptive of and very responsive to rhythm

SHAKERS

Quantising can be a very useful way of correcting bad timing in a perfromance, but sometimes computers can make things just a little too perfect. Groove (techically defined as the slight discprepancies between beats over time) is hugely important in a great rhythmic performance, and really helps keep the listener engaged. Try ‘humanising’ your recording / performance next time and see if you’ve got groove.

Percussive overdubs can be the icing on the cake for many recordings / live performances, but not many have ended up in a $7,300,000 lawsuit. That’s the amount awarded in damages when Pharrell Williams sneakily copied the cowbell from Marvin Gaye’s ‘Got To Give It Up’ for his track ‘Blurred Lines’. Ouch!

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘oh but I’m tone deaf - I can’t do music!’ Well - did you know that arrhythmia is far more common than tone -deafness? Fidel castro was a famous sufferer, famously unable to distinguish between a waltz, a rumba and a samba, so had pretty dodgy dance moves!

ORCHESTRAL

From starter violins to instruments that’ll see you through FE / HE, gigs, tours and beyond... look no further. “Music has a power of forming the character and should therefore be introduced into the education of the young.” (Aristotle) “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, and life to everything… Without music, life would be an error.” (Plato)

New versus old

Professional

If you’re shopping for a beginner you may be tempted to rent an instrument as your student’s commitment is unproven. There are some good reasons to opt for a purchase instead. Long-term rental fees can add up quickly - a perfectly playable entry-level violin can usually be purchased for less than the cost of a year’s rental. Warranty - you’ll have peace of mind with a new model, and finally - a good quality instrument can appreciate in value over time.

The excellent materials and refined artistic skill that go into these instruments drive up their value, and make them appropriate instruments for professional and aspiring, advanced musicians.

a good quality instrument can appreciate in value over time

Size Talking specifically about violins here - violins come in nine different sizes. Generally players over the age 11 will use a full-sized violin (also known as 4/4) For children, there are also 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/10, 1/16 and 1/32 violins.

Care For maximum longevity from your instrument, make sure it’s kept at a mild temperature and at in moderate humidity, and supr crucially that they are kept clean! Make sure you stock up on polish cloths, rosin, cork grease and wire brushes!

Student In general, student instruments will be made from lower-quality materials and involve much less hand work in assembly and finishing. Perfect for those interested in learning, but who are not yet sure if they will play for very long.

Intermediate These instruments are perfect for musicians who know they need something better than a beginner instrument, but aren’t ready to invest thousands of pounds in a professional model.

Did you know

What’s new?

The concept of a PA (public address) system hasn’t changed since it’s inception back in the 1870’s. A PA system in a nutshell consists of 3 stages: a device to capture sound vibrations (a mic) and convert them into an electrical signal, a device to increase and control the electrical signal (an amp) and a device to convert the electrical signal back into vibrations and propagate them (a loudspeaker).

In recent times there have been huge developments in the industry that have greatly streamlined workflow and offered even more power to both the engineer and musicians alike.

Vitruvius is known to have explored architerctural acoustics way back in 20BCE, but a correlation has recently been made between stone-age artwork in caves and the resonance of the parts of the cave that they were found in (the most echoic) Implying that early man would instinctivly gather here to conduct, and then brag about his work to others for mating purposes (nothing has changed).

Keeping things simple Nowadays there is almost no distinction to be made between a front of house speaker and a floor wedge, most speakers come with an angled side and a speaker pole insert slot to allow use in either role!

Wires no more Using wireless systems can save a small fortune on cabling, and in ear monitoring frees the artist from dependancy on floor monitors (also eliminating possible feedback causing noise on stage!)

Mix from anywhere in the room, even the stage! There’s an app for that Mix from anywhere in the room, even the stage! Many digital desks now have their own dedicated app which allows you to control the desk from an iPad / iPhone, truly revolutionary.

Record straight from THE desk Most consoles now have a computer connection (USB or Firewire) that allow you to record multi-track straight to your computer, no more 50 tonne splitters required!

DJ

For a long time DJing has been a somewhat sniffed at pursuit, often not treated as a ‘proper’ musical pastime - and on the equipment front the options were simple: two turntables, a mixer and a pair of headphones. Nowadays however, with the omnipresence of electronic music and the role of computers in music production - things are quite different. The line between the studio producer and the perfomance DJ has been well and truly disintegrated with the advent of some wonderful pieces of equipment (although sometimes - all one needs to bring to a gig is a laptop and controller!) The skills of a DJ are both recognised (you can now study it at FE / HE level) and are in high demand - and as we’ve all experienced, DJing can be a vital access route to music for people that maybe have not had the opportunity to learn a ‘traditional’ instrument, so embrace the change! Here are a few things that are now possible:

DJ’ing can be a vital access route to music

Syncronise with Software

No more back problems

Tempo matching and auditioning tracks is now a breeze with software hosting and playing back all your files, Import tracks from CDs or straight from iTunes and add them to your setlist at the touch of a button.

With everything now based on your computer - no more lugging around heavy records!

Create, perform, or both! Many DJ controllers also feature pads, pots and faders to allow you to perform and control your mix live - it’s not just about pressing the space bar!

WWW.REDDOGMUSIC.CO.UK

Prices are ex VAT, correct at time of going to press and subject to change. Errors and omissions excepted.

The Future! There’s even a new audio format being developed specifically for DJ’s - ‘stems’ is an open audio file format that stores four ‘stem’ tracks (for example bass, drums, melody & vocals) along with the full mix. The format is designed to simplify live remixing of tracks, because it provides a standard way to deliver remix-friendly audio.
