MIX - March 2013 - What to Buy

$5.99$9.99

This month MIX pays a visit to the new Vintage King L.A. showroom, where you can make an appointment, bring in whatever audio you like, then play back and compare whatever gear you want. It's not your typical music shop. 

Then we get on the tour bus (literally) with country legends George Strait and Martina McBride to get the scoop behind The Cowboy Rides Away tour.

Later, we check out English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding live.  We've also got interviews with Sound City: Real to Reel engineer James Brown, who talks about the making of this soundtrack for Dave Grohl's debut documentary, Sound City; and producer Jeff Bhasker, who recently won a Grammy for his work with the band fun. Additionally, we tackle building your own studio at three price points: $10K, $25K and $100K; acoustic treatments for speaker isolation; and the Mix Guide to Microphones.

This month's Mix Regional: Austin covers tips from producer/mixer/engineer/songwriter CJ Eiriksson, and the new album from the legendary Willie Nelson.
