“Almost every musician has dealt with cables throughout his or her musical career, but I’m sure that very few properly know all the names and functions of the different types of cables and connections. Joe and I talked a lot about the importance of the Patch Bay, which acts as the hub of any good studio. The main levels include mic, line, and speaker. All mic cables, patch cables, and XLR are balanced and all instrument cables are unbalanced. During the session after the lesson, Joe focused on a vocal mix. I noticed that he enjoys using an EQ, and compressor, then another EQ, and a De-Esser. He then will send the vocal part to a reverb and delay bus to taste. I really enjoyed being able to watch Joe mix because that is currently my main focus regarding music production.”
