Re: Mixing Doubled Vocals

Yeah, of all of these helpful suggestions, the idea of cleaning up and editing down the double is the most novel to my work. It makes perfect sense. I've directed background singers to drop, or de-emphasize consonants, the same philosophy could clean up the double on the doubled lead vocals. You guy...

Re: Mixing Doubled Vocals

^ Yeah, there's some nitty gritty about the mechanisms of tape machines there that I'm not sure of. I don't think it's actually physically possible for the secondary signal to arrive any sooner than simultaneous to the original, unless record head sent to alternate record head still comes out ahead ...

Re: Mixing Doubled Vocals

ADT is another beast entirely. Reading about it in the recording the Beatles book hurt my brain. It seems like if it’s implimented properly the delay time is always changing and can sometimes arrive before the clean vocal. Or I’ve got it wrong. Either way, being the best band in the world obviously...

I think it's really just a super quick delay with a little bit of flange/pitch-shift.

Mixing Doubled Vocals

"Hey, let's double that lead vocal!" Says so many people who come in to my studio. The thing is, as a listener I generally don't enjoy hearing this. Sure, Elliott Smith or Cat Power, maybe Kurt Cobain got it to do something additive, but I generally don't like it. But I always oblige anyone who feel...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I always feel ya often gotta kinda look at any given chord in the context of its use, in order to most accurately name it.

I mean, in Eb, ya might have a Ab, but in C#, ya might have a G#, see.
This is true.

Re: Budget Boom Vocal Mic Stand Recommendation

Yeah, it's sad how much cash you have to spend on such a utility item with none of the fun or flash of a new mic, or pedal, or whatever. My compromise a while back was the K&M extra tall boom stand. I needed one that could hold a tube mic over the drum set without fear of falling over. It's weighted...

Re: Secret Chords

I like this one to simulate the Hard Day's Night opening chord on one guitar (and no bass, and no piano) low to high 3 3 0 0 1 1 I think all the right notes are there (especially double, if I'm on the 12 string). That one's a little trickier for my theory brain. G-C-D-G-C-F I kind of want to call i...

Interview Idea

You guys should interview Tom Schick. He seems like he's pretty much the Wilco house engineer now, so he's done the last few of their records. As well as a bunch of Jeff solo stuff, Mavis Staples, Iron and Wine, Glen Hansard done at the Wilco loft. Before that he did a bunch of stuff with Norah Jone...

Re: Secret Chords

Some of my favorite chords are simply the result of laziness. Take this one, for example: X 0 0 2 2 2 I think it's some kind of D minor 7-type thing? Easy to finger and sounds way more interesting than a normal D or D minor. Actually ..... cleans off glasses. That's a Dmaj7. It's got A, D, A, C# an...

Re: Soundelux U95 (price drop)

I dropped this another $100 to see if I can find an interested Tapeopper to give this puppy a home. If I don't hear anything this week, I'll be listing it over at Reverb.

Re: Need Advice: How to Modernize Layla 24/96s?

Sorry, I should've been more specific. PCI is the outdated tech, not PCI-e. Oh. I don't think this one's on you. If it wasn't clear from my question I bought "the thing" from Lynx that made my Aurora work with "my computer machine". A more tech savvy reader was probably able to infer what you meant.

Re: Need Advice: How to Modernize Layla 24/96s?

Forget PCI. It's outdated tech. Even if you can find a current mobo with a PCI slot, the performance will not be great. Paul at Lynx told me this: "The newer chipsets have much poorer PCI performance unfortunately. In most cases, PCI is bridged into PCIe which is very inefficient. " Sorry to not ha...
