NEW PRODUCTS
LAWO MC²56 CONSOLE
At NAB 2008, Lawo will premiere its new mc²56 digital production console. With a compact footprint for deployment where space is a consideration, the mc²56 delivers the power, audio quality and redundancy of its larger mc²90 and mc²66 siblings, as it uses the same HD core. Featuring a streamlined interface for maximum functionality, the mc²56 includes Lawo’s new surround channel with hyper-panning, which enables mix engineers to control surround "bundles" with a single fader that links all channel parameters and 8-channel metering. Lawo hyper-panning also makes it possible to rotate a surround bundle through 360-derees, where front width, back width, and depth determine the surround source. See it at NAB booth #N8720.

RECORDING TIP
How To Record Big Toms
When the toms on your drum kit are sounding anemic, try miking both the bottoms and tops of each drum. This adds more inputs to your setup, but to save tracks you could bus and pan them all to a stereo pair, or record the top and bottom of each tom to a track as a pair. Because the top head is moving away from the top mic on the stick hit and the bottom head is moving toward the bottom mic, they are naturally out of polarity. To remedy this, be sure to flip either the top or bottom input out of polarity with its companion. You should instantly notice a bigger, louder drum with more low end. —Kevin Becka
