Hal Leonard publishes Modern Guitar Rigs, 2nd Edition

The Tone Fanatic’s Guide to Integrating Amps and Effects by Scott Kahn

The Tone Fanatic’s Guide to Integrating Amps and Effects by Scott Kahn

Montclair, NJ – March 20, 2014 – Hal Leonard Books, the musician’s best source of books on the music business, audio technology, instrument history, and more, has published Modern Guitar Rigs, 2nd Edition. This full-color, updated edition is the definitive book about building and playing advanced guitar rigs for players who want to move beyond a simple pedal board and combo amp. Modern Guitar Rigs, 2nd Edition, explores time-tested techniques and tools that any serious guitar player can draw upon to build a professional rig of their own.

“A guitar rig by my definition is the complete collection of tools used in delivering your sound. The rig includes your amp(s), speaker cabinets, effects pedals, and rack gear such as effects, tuners, loopers, wireless system, power conditioners, foot controllers and pedalboards, and all the other little stuff that ties it all together. A nice combo amp might be one component in your rig, but if that’s all you’ve got, you have an amp, not a rig,” says Kahn.

Whether you’re playing clubs at the indie band level, getting set for a major tour, heading into the studio to record a new album, or just searching for “ultimate tone,” this revised and updated edition brings you the most current and effective sound-shaping tools and techniques, including:

- Amp setups: integrating pedals and rack gear, wet/dry/wet configurations, modeling amps and profilers, rack-mounted amps, stereo rigs, and multiple-amp setups
- Rack gear: multi-effects processors and dedicated signal processors, audio loopers, amp function switching systems, and MIDI foot controllers
- Guitar options: piezoelectric pickups and splitting guitar signals to multiple amps
- Effects loops: choosing the right loop for your specific needs
- Rig infrastructure: power conditioning, noise suppression, power attenuators, wireless systems, custom cabling, and equipment racks
- Rigs of the stars: a look at the complex rigs used by many leading guitar players, including John Petrucci of Dream Theater, Alex Lifeson of Rush, and Steven Wilson and John Wesley of Porcupine Tree
- Interviews with leading custom rig builders, including the legendary Bob Bradshaw of Custom Audio Electronics

About the author:
SCOTT KAHN is a widely respected guitar and recording technologist and professional musician. As the editor in chief of MusicPlayers.com, the online magazine for serious musicians, he regularly evaluates and writes about the latest products being developed for professional guitar players and complex guitar rigs. Kahn is also known worldwide as the guitar player for the progressive rock band, Beyond Tomorrow, and as co-founder of the prog rock band, Days Before Tomorrow.

iZotope Masters Q&A Series, Part 3: Dave Whitehead, Master of Audio for Sound Design

Cambridge, MA (February 10, 2014) —Dave Whitehead is a part of the multi-award-winning audio team at New Zealand’s Park Road Post Production, with credits that include Elysium, the Lord of The Rings series and most recently,The Hobbit. In a job where creativity on a deadline is standard, Whitehead is constantly being challenged to find new solutions to keep things fresh. Read on to find out why iZotope plug-ins like RX 3 and Iris have earned a spot in his permanent arsenal of audio tools.

What role does audio play in sound design?
Great audio files are the building blocks for any great sound design project. In an ideal world, we have new recordings made with great mics through great preamps, in great spaces. The world is far from ideal and that’s not always the case. That’s where products like RX 3 come in to play. Trying to align the perfect frequencies and timbres to drive the emotion on screen is what sound design for film is all about.

Why is efficiency important in your projects nowadays?
Most of the projects I work on have large concepts that must be realized in a very short space of time. You pull all the insight you can from the script, artwork, personal research, the film footage and the director’s brief. You then have to dive in with your own concept. That process is usually one of discovery, parsing the good from the bad—and the plain ugly, which is actually exactly what you’re after sometimes. So, efficiency is everything—from naming your field recordings to saving your plugin settings.

Creating plug-in chains is a daily practice and is one of the cornerstones to designing sound (along with getting great field recordings). When you’re in a real hurry, you need intuitive plug-ins that are easy to move around. I find the interfaces of iZotope plug-ins easy to navigate, which means they become an extension of your thoughts, ultimately improving your creative output.

I used to twiddle with plug-ins and find a great sound, then tweak the settings a bit more and that magic sound I had would be gone. I learned my lesson early and record anytime I hear something good come out of my speakers.

Which iZotope tools are you currently using?

I have used all of iZotope’s products in the past year, but I have my favorites. I use Ozone at some stage on any given day. In sound design you’re trying to make the perfect sound for any given moment so I am constantly working a single sound to get the most out of it. Ozone allows me to literally punch a sound into shape. The Multiband Dynamics are where I tend to shape sounds the most and coupled with the Harmonic Exciter and Stereo Imaging you can seriously augment and transform something meek into a monster.

Iris is a awesome! It’s the perfect stinger machine. The day it came out I made a few hundred stingers for Elysium. It’s also excellent for creating ambient loops and alien textures, musical tonalities and drones.

Trash 2 hit my plug-ins folder late last year and I didn’t really play with it much at first. Turns out that was my loss. The distortion is like no other. You can create your own distortion algorithms or choose one of the presets as a starting point. The control over the distortion is phenomenal, especially with multi-band control, which allows razor sharp harmonic shaping across multiple frequencies. Then there’s the convolution section. This is a great sound design tool and I will be exploring it heavily this year on a couple of Sci-Fi films.

How did you use RX 3 in any of your recent projects?
I’ve used Spectral Repair to remove birds and insects from many recordings during The Hobbit. It’s preferable to start with a perfect recording, but nowadays if a few birds tweet while I’m recording, I’m not as concerned as I know I now have the tools to fix it.

The Declick module is great to help tame the crackles and pops of a fire. You can get the warm roar of the flames without the clicks, which will always aggravate the re-recording mixers. I sometimes use Alloy 2’s Transient Shaper for this also, to subtly take down the attack on sounds with a sharp attack, like drips.

Occasionally, I will teach the RX 3 Denoiser what noise is and record that noise only as a sound effect. You can get some really cool results. But I’m also removing noise from files constantly and have found myself using the new Dialogue Denoiser, usually in Manual mode, for real time noise reduction. It’s quick and the results are great, which are the two things I like most while in salvage and repair mode. It’s quick and effective noise reduction.

Dereverb has also opened up the palette of usable material. We have recorded great material indoors over the years that you really can’t use on exterior scenes without gating or EQ’ing drastically. Dereverb helps transform these for multiple uses.

RX 3 has changed my thinking on older recordings that were once deemed unusable.

When have you had to fix audio that was recorded less than perfectly?
This is a constant practice and not always because something was recorded poorly, butmore frequently because you want to hone in on one particular element within a recording. Like a surgeon, you can isolate and attenuate, or export components of the audio. For example, I’ve isolated selected cicadas in a jungle to tame the cacophony into a quiet jungle. I’ve lowered wind in trees to better isolate the tree creaks. The list goes on and on.

When I started out, I had terrible mics, worse recorders and even worse preamps. RX 3 has really allowed me to revisit old material and revamp it. I remembered recording a bee in 1991 and found the old DAT tape. I loaded it, removed the birds and noise on the recording and used it in The Hobbit.

I also record vocal FX at the desk in my studio quite often. I have a noise profile saved and can quickly remove the noise before working with the material, which is handy too!

iZotope creates plug-ins for people who create some of the best ear candy in the world. I find new parameters to play with all the time and love that they keep making new tools to play with.

Hal Leonard and Worship Musician™! present The Worship Bass Book

Bass, Espresso, and the Art of Groove

Montclair, NJ (February 6, 2014) - The Worship Bass Book is a fun, informal, and extremely practical resource for bassists playing in a team setting. The material is presented in a way that is easy to understand, accessible, and powerfully insightful. Acclaimed bassist and music educator Norm Stockton covers a broad range of topics in bite-size chunks, allowing players to emerge with solid and practical understanding of how to best function as an effective bassist in a rhythm section.

“As opposed to a comprehensive methodology for all things bass, this will be more of a collection of the nuggets – many of which were acquired through lessons learned the hard way – that I’ve found valuable for my own development as a bass player,” explains Stockton.

The Worship Bass Book also provides valuable instructions and helpful direction regarding bass techniques, musical concepts, and important relational considerations that will help ANY bass player thrive, inside or outside the worship realm.

“Much of the material is relevant to bass playing in any context, so if you’re not a worship musician, welcome!” says Stockton.

Other topics included are musical phrasing, tools of the trade, fingerboard familiarity, musical styles, slap and tap techniques, bass and drum synergy, solo bass arranging, real-world groove lessons, a passion for the groove, and much more.

About the author
Norm Stockton travels extensively throughout North America, Europe, and Japan. He has been profiled in Bass Player magazine and is recognized by many as one of today’s premier bassists. From 2006 to 2012 he was the touring and recording bassist with chart-topping worship artist – and former Steve Perry guitarist – Lincoln Brewster. Stockton currently performs with Grammy Award-winning singer Bobby Kimball – the original lead vocalist with Toto. As a solo artist, he has released two instrumental jazz projects that have garnered widespread global acclaim.

Stockton’s instructional DVD series, Grooving for Heaven, has been enthusiastically received in the United States and abroad; his instructional website ArtOfGroove.com serves subscribers from around the world. Known internationally as an effective educator and clinician, he has conducted several master classes and is an adjunct faculty member at, among others, Biola University, The Los Angeles Music Academy, Tech Music School London, and Concordia University. He has also been a columnist for Christian Musician magazine since 1999. Follow Norm on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Hal Leonard publishes Make Some Noise – Become the Ultimate DJ

Montclair, NJ (January 29, 2014) – There are books on how to become a DJ, books that talk about beatmatching, mashups, and how to perform in nightclubs – even one that claims it can teach you everything in two hours. Make Some Noise is a complete, cutting-edge DJ book and is unlike any current book on the subject. It does teach the basics, but it goes beyond the how-to, discussing DJ’ing while playing with a live instrument as well as goal-setting, marketing, and choosing your music genre. The book also features a collection of twenty-five spotlights on some of the biggest DJs in the world, providing you with the opportunity to learn from the best of the best. Some of the DJs included are Infected Mushroom, Judge Jules, Miss Nine, Todd Terry, Chus, Umek, Kissy Sell Out, and Format B.

Make Some Noise blends together practical advice and tools for learning the craft, along with an inspirational message that will help encourage you to pursue your own dreams and aspirations about becoming a DJ.

“DJ’ing consists of these elements: mixing and beatmatching, programming amazing sets, incorporating live instrumentation, and crowd interaction,” says Scott Binder, the author of Make Some Noise. “If you master these elements, you will separate yourself from 99 percent of the DJs out there. Modern DJs are at their best when they are turning their shows into true live performance, and mastering all of the levels illustrated in this book will help you do that.”

About the author
Scott Binder is the co-producer of the popular electro house duo the Banger Bros and is a producer for Warner Music (NL). His song “Beat, Beat, Bang” was featured on MTV’s The Real World, and his other releases consistently reach the music charts, including Billboard, DMC World Magazine, Beatport charts, and the Music Week Top 100. Binder has also worked with house legends Roland Clark and Todd Terry. He is the owner of Golden Needle Records, a lable launched in 2010.
