NEWSFLASH
TGI Group picks up TC. In December 2001, TC Group, the Danish parent company of TC Electronic, TC Works and TC-Helicon, announced a proposal to the shareholders of TGI plc to purchase their holdings in the company. The offer has now been accepted by the shareholders and declared wholly unconditional, and a new strong constellation of innovative companies has been founded. MORE

George Petersen's Recording Tip
Recording Tip From George Petersen, Mix Editorial Director: Years ago, I became hooked on using electronic kick drum to trigger samples on rock, pop and R&B dates–even when I was recording an otherwise all-acoustic kit. This approach offers many advantages: Because the kick is silent in the studio, sympathetic snare buzz is greatly reduced, and the overall signal in the overheads is cleaner, with less kick bleeding into the other mics. Also, with no bleed from the original kick, the kick pattern can be changed or altered later if necessary–a highly desirable option. On any session (sampled or otherwise), the goal of recording kick is to get a solid, consistent sound–and here the sampled kick adds, rather than detracts, from the drum kit sound.
