Articles by Bruce Kaphan

If you're not familiar with Recording Magazine, it's a monthly publication for people interested in recording. In particular, the magazine is geared toward the home studio owner/self-recording musician. I've been writing for the magazine since 2001.

Here's a list of links to articles I've written that are available online at Recording Magazine's website:

ARTICLES ON DRUM RECORDING:

close miking

unusual perspectives

drum miking overview

ARTICLES ON VOCAL RECORDING:

backing vocals

choosing a vocal mic

the Asterisk Array

ASSORTED ARTICLES:

recording pedal steel

mixing

electric guitar

upright bass

recording for songwriters

song demos

specialized acoustic guitar


An earlier version of my attempts to make my articles available here resulted in the following pair of articles being made available as .pdf downloads. With the kind permission of the fine folks at Recording Magazine, following is a two part series on vocal recording. It took a fair amount of effort for the staff at Recording Magazine to format these articles for you to be able to view them here, so if you enjoy having access to these articles, please stop by Recording Magazine's website and even better yet, pick up the magazine- it's filled with wisdom, knowledge and product reviews. As Recording Magazine expands its resource library, I'm hopeful I'll be able to post more links on this page.
