Processing with the Pros #1: Microphone Processing

By Cornelius Gould on Mar 14, 2019 12:40:13 PM

Welcome to the first installment of my new blog series, Processing with the Pros.—created to help you sculpt your sound with insider tech tips from the processing experts here at Omnia. This first edition, we're talking microphone processing. Let’s begin!

First off, always remember that whatever the microphone processor does, the on-air processing will take the result, and magnify it. So, a little bit of adjustment on the microphone processor goes a long way on-air. Both Frank Foti and I have had great success with making DJs sound bigger than life with just the simplest and slightest changes to the microphone end of things.

Ear Candy #3: Clippers—Where the Rubber Meets the Road!

By Frank Foti on Oct 25, 2018 9:12:39 AM

In the wild (and sometimes wacky) world of audio processing, there are many variables that contribute to the final result. Many discussions, and debates, have ensued over topics such as wideband or multiband: If multiband – how many bands, analog or digital, use phase rotation or not? EQ – what kind? And the list goes on. While all of these contribute to the final result, there’s one function that actually defines the audio signature more so than all of these, and that is the final section, known as the hard limiter, or clipper.

[Ear Candy #2] Program Director + Chief Engineer = #1 Station

By Frank Foti on Sep 27, 2018 12:35:24 PM

Before starting Omnia, I was very lucky to have worked at a couple of extremely successful radio stations, WMMS-FM, Cleveland, and WHTZ-FM (Z-100), NYC, where we prided ourselves on being the best. Anything other than #1 in the ratings was not an option. The motivation for Omnia growing from ‘worst-to-first’ was highly influenced by Z-100’s historic (and never since duplicated) journey from ‘worst-to-first’ in only one ratings period, in 1983. For Omnia (now a part of The Telos Alliance) it took a little longer to dislodge the long-time leader.
