  • About
    My mother bought me my first tape recorder when I was nine. I spent 17 in major market radio, handling the writing, voicing and production of hundreds if not thousands of commercials and promo announcements. I also began producing local bands.<br />
    <br />
    In 1986, I left broadcasting to pursue writing, audio production and talent work. I also began writing articles for magazines and web sites. I am currently a forum leader for the Creative Cow Audio Forum.<br />
    <br />
    As a guitar player, music production has always been a part of my life. In 2000, I began to attract the attention of local singer/songwriters. Helping them create their music has been a very rewarding part of my life. I mix live sound and work as a location audio recorder and mixer for film and video shoots. More information about my location audio work can be found here. <br />
    <br />
    I began shooting and editing video in 2005. I’ve written two books; “Advanced Audio Production Techniques” and “Ty Ford’s Audio Bootcamp Field Guide.” Info on my field guide can be found here. Another book is in the works.<br />
    <br />
    I re-wrote the NAB’s handbook on radio commercial copywriting and have twice updated the microphone chapter in the weighty NAB Engineering Handbook.<br />

    Following a brain stem stroke in 2007, which passed though with no damage, I took a course in Chakra Balancing. In early 2009, I became a certified Chakra Balancer and Subtle Energy Therapist. More about that here. I also have a Facebook page for this practice. <br />

    I am never bored. :)

  1. If you have any horrible audio, I'll try to make it less horrible. Send me a link or a short .wav file. https://www.cedar-audio.com/downloads/cedartrinityenhancemanualv1.10_15dec20.pdf Regards, Ty Ford
  2. maybe this will help. https://tyfordaudiovideo.blogspot.com/2018/07/klover-parabolic-collector-microphone.html
  3. Having my audio on any cloud makes me nervously uncomfortable. Regards, Ty Ford
  4. MixPre D? I like mine and use it also for USB interface to computer.
  5. We used to think that rechargeables had a somewhat floaty supply level and that caused problems with some circuitry, especially as the batteries age. I had a similar problem using rechargeable 9 VDC batteries in a home security system years ago. The transmitter would fail irregularly and trip the system.
  6. Here you go... https://tyfordaudiovideo.blogspot.com/2016/08/the-cedar-dns-2-portable-dialog-noise.html Regards, Ty Ford
  7. My exact same experience. The 8050 seemed to have a smiley face EQ, so I also didn't like the top end.
  8. On the advice of a friend, I began watching "Money Heist." As he mentioned the ADR is pretty amazing. If you're not looking for it, you can go a ways without noticing. Was there a special approach to achieving this effect?
  9. so, not just a lot of data compression, real transformation! That's sort of scary.
  10. I just read the following, "Modern telephony sends your voice using encoded phonemes, adjustment coefficients and corrections for a virtual voicebox which tries to mimic you at the other end. Actual raw audio is not sent. This is also the reason why hold music can sound pretty weird sometimes." Does anyone know if this is true?
