THE JOY OF SIX Fabled console brand Solid State Logic has released SiX, a compact desktop mixer with several professional-grade features. Despite its diminutive size, the SiX promises a big console sound that aims to cover your studio, post-production, stage and podcasting needs.

As easy as it is these days to dial up a vintage effect ‘in the box’, it can be a lot more fun creating your own unique sound by taking advantage of your own surroundings. If you have a reverberant bathroom or kitchen, try rigging up a temporary echo chamber with a loudspeaker at one end and a microphone at the opposite end, pointing towards the tiled wall. For the longest available reverb time, remove any bath mats, towels and other absorbent materials. Filtering the signal before sending it to the speaker will help create your own unique small echochamber sound. Explore your recording environment to find interesting and useful ambient spaces. Experimentation is key to producing a trademark sound; even the inside of an oven can be used to create…
