B & W Matrix 805 speakers were reviewed by Steve Silverstein in that issue. They aren't powered, though, and were recommended to be used as alternates or complimentary monitors to your main monitors as they have a de-emphasized midrange and increased lows and highs. Great for checking parts of your ...

I missed #80, or it's late, because of a move, so I ordered it through the back issue service, Good Mountain. Got it in just a few days & am very pleased with their service.

Tape Op back issues

I've got lots of Tape Op back issues up on eBay at a 1-cent starting price (I've managed to acquire extra copies over the years and am realizing I really don't need more than one copy of each issue). I'm also getting rid of several MOJOs, No Depression, Performing Songwriter, and other stuff. If you...

I don't think it ever happened. I emailed the original poster some time ago and he told me, if I recall correctly, that he was trying to get something together but hasn't been able to make it happen yet. I'd be into some sort of meetup, too. Even if it were just two or three Tape Op'ers meeting over...

The part that I don't get is why the folks in the 'biz' make their lives more difficult by choosing 'talent' that is so rough around the edges and takes so much polishing to get to sound/look 'right.' Aren't there thousands of both musically-talented AND good-looking people around? Years ago I read...

Shoot David Barbe at Chase Park Transduction - http://chaseparktransduction.com/ - an email. David is a super nice guy and is really good about working with other studios in the area. If Chase Park doesn't meet your needs he can probably recommend a studio that does.

There's instructions on building an echo chamber in the book "Analog Recording - Using Analog Gear In Today's Home Studio" by David Simmons. Though there's not a lot of information that most Tape Op types don't already know, it's an interesting book with lots of in-the-studio photos of sixties artis...

For those of you who've put out your music on CD-R's & sold some, do you let people know that they're buying a CD-R instead of a 'real' CD? If not, have you had complaints like, "I thought I was buying a real CD, not a CD-R I could make at home?" So far I've done my music on CD-Rs. I put them in nic...
