How to get 2 channel hi-fi as close to a live sound as possible

Like we were talking the other day bad things come in three’s. Well good things come in three’s also. We have our Hollywood project which I’m very excited about because I’m going to have a recording facility in the same room as we’re going to have a playback facility. So musicians are going to be able to record and then play back on the 2 channel system on the other side of the room and the room acoustic will be the same. So we’re going to make the room acoustic the same throughout the room.

So always a goal in 2 channel sound is to recreate the actual live event where the recording took place, make the equipment disappear, get the equipment out of the way through good acoustics and then see how close the recording is to the live version or the playback sound is to the recording. And we’re doing that in North Carolina and Hollywood for two individuals and I’m very excited on that because I’ve always wanted to do that, I think that’s a great way to show people the difference.

So what’s going to cause any difference in sound if the room acoustic is the same? The gear. Pretty much the gear because the acoustic is the same so it’s always the speaker, the amplifier, the cables and all that good stuff that we try to minimize and get out of the way. So it’s going to be to be a real fun project so we’re really looking forward to that.

And anybody in L.A. moving forward you’re welcome to come and test it out in due course once we’ve got it up and running. We’re actually going to need a recording engineer to come in and do some recording for us so any of you guys out there in Los Angeles, North Hollywood is where we’ll be. Send me your resume to dennis@acousticfields.com and I’ll be happy to look at it. We’ll probably do a whole series of recordings once or twice a week for two / three months so it will be a good gig for somebody out there in the Los Angeles area.
