BIG AUDIO - Recording & Mixing Music

by Bob Gablehouse

Introduction
Welcome to BIG AUDIO. My name is Bob Gabelhouse, owner/operator of BiG Audio Productions recording studio in Kelowna. Over the next year I'll be giving you some great info on things like how to build a recording studio and anything that has to do with being an audio engineer and/or a music producer. Plus other juicy subjects like looking after your ears, electronic music programming and learning to appreciate the differences between analog and digital recording and mixing.

Here’s a closer look at some of the subjects that will be covered in future articles:
   -How to build a recording studio (Part 1 & 2)
   -Recording equipment & connections (Part 1 & 2)
   -Analog vs. Digital recording & mixing
   -Becoming an Audio Engineer
   -What does a Music Producer do?
   -Elements of a great album
   -Taking care of your ears
   -Dynamics & FX processing
   -Electronic programming
   -and other juicy tidbits that will come to mind

First, let’s cover some of my background:
Prior to becoming a Certified Audio Engineer (at times ‘certifiable’) I was a struggling musician. I've had a passion for music since I was 14. After several years of on-the-road ‘success’ I was still broke so it was time for a change. I wanted to learn as much as I could about making and recording music, so off to Vancouver I went to attend audio college.
After graduating I worked part-time in live sound mixing, while also as a Production Assistant for syndicated radio in Vancouver. It was there that I was able to meet Grammy Award winning music producer David Foster on a radio show called In Session which chronicled the popular albums being recorded at that time: the intriguing ‘80s. Some of David’s drive must have rubbed off on me because I became very focused on the future of my audio career.

Years later, after working in several recording studios and doing live sound for countless well-known Canadian acts, I was able to build my dream recording studio here in the beautiful Okanagan: BiG Audio Productions. I am also the Instructor of Audio Engineering and Music Production at Okanagan College.
So come back next month to begin this audio journey, with music as our fuel for the trip.
