Live Music

jonah smith: Live audio mix. 2007 Emmy nomination from Bill Mueller on Vimeo.

My 2007 Emmy nomination. The hardest part of doing any TV live broadcast is “containing” the music. A TV studio is not meant for music, and it’s real easy to lose your sound to the space. To battle that I was careful with the levels I got from the mics. It was important for this mix to really contain everything and make the mix as smooth as possible as it fits the musical style. I carved out notches for each instrument and voice to make sure they fit in their own space without adding a lot of the actual room space. The end result was a nice contained mix, that got me a 2007 Emmy nomination
