Justin Grealy is one of the wittiest and most interesting people I've ever met. Probably has the right answer to every existing sound engineering question.▼
After attending your 3 seminars on the PLASA Focus and reading your book (twice) I just want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! It is undoubtedly the most useful "user manual" I've read in a long time.▼
Amazingly my career has taken a massive step forward since being a part of Soulsound – I’m really, really grateful. Soulsound has opened up doors in the industry I had no hope of opening myself. One of the best things to happen to my career.▼
A lot of young engineers suffer from the "am I actually doing this right?" factor. Having a contact with Jon, Justin, Marcel, Darryn and the others is a great way of building your confidence up.▼
It really was a lightbulb moment, and reading your "story" gave me the feeling of "Yes, I can!" and a much needed kick up the backside, you really are one inspirational lady!▼
I registered because I really care to learn more about sound and it is a great opportunity to expand my knowledge.▼
Soulsound is FANTASTIC!! From meeting the friendly people that form its nucleus I learned about the site and how it could benefit ME, a young individual that is chasing the dream of becoming a respected Sound Engineer! I fully recommend Soulsound, as they have opened up a whole new world of opportunity for me!▼
Marcel made me understand audio from a total different approach, I could suddenly connect all the dots in a surprising new approach!▼
Soulsound has been one of the most important point of inflexion in my life.▼
The Stagecraft Masterclass was a huge help when I was working as a Live Sound Assistant, and I still use a lot of the tips in the videos everyday. Soulsound is the single best sound engineering resource website for me. The best thing about it is that you have renowned sound engineers sharing their experience and knowledge.▼
Marcel's approach in explaining things is so good that I've literally felt enlightened after every lecture I've had with him.▼
I have known and worked with Jon Burton in the pro-audio world for many years and have a healthy respect for his knowledge and engineering skills.▼

In this final part of Marcel’s Recording Acoustic Guitar masterclass, the lovely Astrid finally gets to sing! But adding a vocal mic into the mix causes problems when combined with stereo techniques used on the guitar – the resulting comb filtering is pretty nasty on the ear.
To solve this problem, Marcel uses two carefully positioned figure of 8 mics to achieve a high degree of separation between the channels, making mixing the two together a much more successful venture. This is, indeed, an excellent technique.
Whilst on the subject of stereo images when recording, no discussion is complete without considering the MS (mid-sides) technique, which uses co-incident omni and figure of 8 mics.
The joy of this technique is the perfect phase coherence (both mics are as close to being in the same place as it’s possible to be in physical reality) as well the control it provides for the mix engineer over the width of the image. Marcel demonstrates this technique with his usual attention to detail.
Get to know the sound engineers who have spent their lives gigging and making damn fine records. Get to know the industry from the inside out.
Using video masterclasses and tutorials we bring you the best information from inside the heads of some of the best sound engineers in the business.
Sometimes you need a new idea, sometimes you need a kick up the butt. Soulsound will deliver both, and inspire you to excellence.
