This is probably the most inspiring thing I've heard in years. I've had debate after debate with one friend about the idea that you could record a "real" record in a home studio. Generally, my friend is right, and this is the exception that proves the rule. In addition to kudos on the recording and ...

Philosophical question

I've been working on my first CD for a long time. I've had the opportunity to record parts of it at a nice studio (two songs). Here's my dilemma: I could either wait until I had the money to record the rest of my songs at a proper studio, although realistically this will probably mean another two to...

Thanks for checking it out. Anybody else have any thoughts on this one?

I'm also wondering if there's anything I can do to make the vocals sound "more modern" (in terms of the way it's EQ'd, compressed, etc.)

Yeah, this is classic Wyatt! I never liked Soft Machine either, but his solo stuff (as well as the things he did with Phil Manzanera) is great.

If you liked ComicOpera, you should check out Shleep...

A successful mix engineer once told me he bought FIFTY pairs of NS10ms when he found out they were going to be discontinued, and he uses them for all his listening--Home stereo, television, computer, and of course, in the studio.

Latest mix: "Rebound Girl" (Powerpop)

Happy day-after-Thanksgiving! I just finished my latest (and probably best-yet) mix of a song that'll be going on my first CD. It's called ""Rebound Girl", and I'd love to find out what you think of the song and my mix. The basic tracks (drums, guitar, bass, piano, bvox, all me) were recorded at Tin...

Agreed. Electric Lucifer is one of the most out-there albums you're likely to ever hear.

4'x6' Whisper Room Vocal Booth--$2500 (Palo Alto, Ca)

I'm selling my 4'x6' vocal booth. Brand new these cost a bit over $4000 (after tax and freight). Excellent for recording (I used mine for recording vocals and really LOUD electric guitar). The booth is on casters so it's even more isolated from the room, as well as more movable (but not much!). As a...

Is the Klopfgeist outputting on 1-2? If not, you'll have to create an object in the environment, set it to instrument 127 and see what's going on.

Good luck!

I'm not really an expert, but I really liked Dave Moulton's book Total Recording. In fact, having read most of the other books mentioned, I'd say Dave's is the one I still learn new things from every time I look through it. It's not really meant to be read cover to cover (ouch!), but digested in sma...

Re: 40 years ago - YOW

Please continue. Additionally, as far as I know, few-to-no labels are making a sufficient effort to insure the stability of their long term catalog in terms of simple storage. That's something I've always wondered about: Doesn't it stand to reason that you get to a point where an older CD release c...
