Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear, enlightenment, and yer mom, man

  It's not a typically coveted Gretsch........................................................ The looks remind me a bit (and make me sentimal for) my Martin EM-18, long ago stolen. It was my first "nice" guitar after a string of battered Teiscos & the like. Heavy as fuck, with a similar "furniture...

Try JZ Microphones' site. You'll likely see it there.

Re: Windows Updates

I have a 2008 i7 that I upgraded from Windows 7 not so long ago. I don't have a ton of audio software, but I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the upgrade went--even the obsolete drivers for my audio interface made the transition with a minimum of fuss. I'm planning to upgrade with a later mo...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Anyone know what J. Robert Lennon aka inverseroom is up to these days? (Recent events notwithstanding..) This news is a decade old, but new to me: I decided, out of boredom to start watching a detective show called Unforgettable, which ran from 2011-2016. I'm watching the credits roll by as the fir...

Re: Ddistributing Songs

An "album" generally refers to a collection of things stuck together, Samuel Johnson defined it as "a book in which foreigners have long been accustomed to insert autographs of celebrated people," which expanded to include souvenirs (& eventually photographs.) In Latin "album" means "white color" o...

Re: Ddistributing Songs

But it's interesting that certain terms transfer more readily even as others seem arbitrarily to get attached to a particular medium--why is "album," which may date back to the 78 era, more transferable than "record?" Why has "EP" transferred more readily than "LP?" And yeah, it doesn't matter, but ...

Re: Ddistributing Songs

yeah i can't say record, because that denotes vinyl. And yet why? Record would simply signify recording, I'd think--there's really nothing medium-specific about it, but it is mostly used to denote vinyl. I'll call CDs records sometimes, or refer to an album (regardless of format) as a record. And p...

Re: Ddistributing Songs

So I was thinking about MJB's preference for albums, and reflecting on the fact that 78s, which run 3 or 4 minutes a side, were dominant until the 1950s, and then it occurred to me that maybe the term "album" originally referred to those "books" of 78s people would buy. It would make sense--there's ...

Re: Recommend me a wild delay pedal

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Realistic Sound Mangler- . The story on this device, if I remember right, is that the notoriously cheap owner of Tandy bought a whole bunch of BBD chips that had failed inspection (and thus were to be had for next to nothing) and charged his engineers with the...

Re: mastering, limiter, diy.

One more key, whether you're sending a track to an ME or using plugins, is to make your track sound as good as possible before mastering. Maybe that's getting rid of extraneous low end on certain tracks, or adjusting panning/levels/fx/whatever--dealing with all of that first is going to make the mas...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Yeah, I'm bored, so here's a thought: What if, instead of straight masonite, you used pegboard? And then filled the cavity with fiberglass or recycled denim insulation or whatever? And then, to make things doubly deflective, you nail curved or angled pieces of corner to the plywood sheet so that any...

I loved that song as a kid, and I've come to realize that, consciously or unconsciously, I've borrowed from it...a lot.

Re: Outbox vs. Sent Messages?

I think it might be if the recipient has their inbox full... it waits until they have space. I responded to your PM. Let me know if it gets through. Yes, got it at 3:11 pm my time (CST). Cheers. And the message I sent you has now exited my Outbox, so it would appear the mystery is solved!
