Every recording — be Music or Dialogue or Sound Effects — the idea of recording the audio is to be produced that at a later time. Whenever it is reproduced it is supposed to give something similar hence it is important that the reproduced it is supposed to give a similar auditory experience as it was during the recording. Hence, it is important that the reproduced audio is either similar to how the given instruments would sound naturally or it has to be as per the visualization or audiolization of the audio designer. A piece of audio when heard creates either an emotion or it can be a help the brain visualize a picture. The processing tools for audio help us create this illusion. One of the most important tools to create the solution is Space. If you can create an Illusion of space so that the listener can I really feel like being there, the job is done right. This space can be created by the right use of reverbs. In our day-to-day life we hear these reverbs, are a part of the whole sound we hear. A dry signal never sounds natural to our ears because in nature…

This blog addresses the problem of every budding Music Producer- whether he is pursuing Music Production Course or starting out with his budget setup. Almost every aspiring music programmer ends up thinking that their budget gear is not good enough. More often than not, this makes them go on a wild shopping spree wanting to buy the best audio interface, the best mic, the best MacBook, etc. While an audio gear upgrade might improve the audio quality, it is seldom a necessary requirement. In this blog we will address some workarounds that can improve the performance of whatever DAW the music programmer is using be it Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Cubase, Reason, etc. To best utilize the full potential of the DAW, it is advisable for a beginner to undergo formal training through Music Production Courses. 1)Buffer size: When recording audio into your computer, the amount of time allotted for processing the audio is called the Buffer Size. Often times a smaller Buffer Size is desirable, However, not one that is too small as that ends up affecting the quality of the recorded sound. A buffer size of 128 is needed for recording (so you don’t get delay in your headphones).…

Published By: Shraddha Sankulkar, head of Mindmatterz & Faculty of Applied Psychology at Soundideaz Academy Here we are in a brand New Year! The arrival of the New Year brings along fresh hope in every mind. Learning from the mistakes of the past and by taking new initiatives we literally reboot our lives with a positive mindset. After experiencing a fantastic travel time at Goa, the last month of the bygone year sowed fresh seeds of creativity for me, which I believe will bear fruits in the New Year. On 2nd December last year, I presented my first ever webinar on the topic ‘Mind Management in Media Careers’. Throughout my teaching/training career so far, I have only been lecturing ‘Live’ in classrooms & through workshops, but, with the enthusiasm of contributing something positive towards mental health awareness, I went for it. The webinar was organized by SoundIdeaz Academy, to which my organization- Mind Matterz (A Psychological Guidance Unit) is associated with since the year 2010. While setting the webinar, though there were initial technical hiccups, my colleague Dhiren Khantawal (Marketing Executive at SIA) & myself ‘never gave up’ till the end. After multiple recording takes, we did the final 21 minutes recording…

On the opening night of this year’s Bengal Classical Music Festival, the Dhaka audience experienced something unique: the Astana Symphony Philharmonic Orchestra’s presentation of Western Classical classics like Tchaikovsky’s ballet composition “Swan Lake”, as well as a magnificent blending between Eastern and Western classical music through collaboration between the Orchestra and Carnatic violin virtuoso Dr. L Subramaniam and his ensemble. Chandorkar (R) busy behind the console Any discerning listener who has experienced a full orchestral performance would realize how incredible it was to have a 58-piece orchestra with a vast tapestry of sounds play in an open-air venue and still have the same experience of a concert hall with specially-architected acoustics where Western classical is usually performed. This performance underlined one of the most crucial factors behind the success of this festival in the past six years — a crisp, crystal auditory experience whether it is the thundering ghatam and mridangam or the nuanced notes of the santoor. The Daily Star got hold of the chief sound engineer of the concert, Pramod Chandorkar, to find out what goes on behind the mixing console to achieve that. Mumbai-based Chandorkar, an accomplished sound engineer with 25…
