A Brief History of Surround Sound

You could win a bar bet by knowing that Quadraphonic sound (surround-sound as we call it now) first became available in 1969.

Masters of Sound - On the Road to the Grand Ole Opry Day Three

Day Two of the Masters of Sound shoot was to revolve around a recording session of three songs from Rainey Qualley’s debut EP Turn Down The Lights, and a cover of the Motown classic Ain’t Too Proud to Beg. I arrived at the studio at 8:02 figuring I’d be alone for a while, but the video crew, audio engineer and assistant engineer were already working. The main work straight out of the box is setting the tracks and getting the microphones set up and connected to the console.
