Re: Show Us Your Junk - cool gear porn YouTube Channel

Even on the pedal board videos the artists are able to hype other non-Earthquaker pedals. They seem to do this stuff pretty classy, adding to the respect I already had for that company.

Re: Show Us Your Junk - cool gear porn YouTube Channel

It seems like Kurt Ballou is gearing up to sell custom guitars and pedals.

Re: The drum "Wurst Mic" technique - Holy shit!

I used to do this all of the time. It often worked better as my destroyed by pumping compression or distortion mic to blend than the room mic did.

I don't know why I stopped, I'm gonna bring back the crotch mic!

Re: machine room...

hearing the faint hum of my computer and radar's fans and hardrives is slowly driving me insane. I don't know why I didn't factor in a machine room for this new studio when we built it 5 years ago but I gotta do something and no it's not gonna be enough to replace a few components in my tower... it...

How far apart do you like your near fields?

I've been noticing in a lot of studio photos posted by friends, colleagues and heroes that folks keep their near field monitors a lot closer together than the 6 feet or so I'm doing. Lots of people have them up on the meter bridge, or similar space above their board looking like 3-4 feet. I get the ...

Re: Mastering Anxiety

This is way more acute for me when it's my own project, but I get it either way. Sometimes I kind of get off on the adrenaline rush of committing and just actualizing a damn thing. The finality of the DONE stamp is an existential cudgel.

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

I've been indulging in a few guitar related purchases lately: Squire Telecaster, for which I bought some Bootstrap pickups. A friend said his Bootstraps could hang with heavyweights like Lollar, and Fralin. We'll see once they're installed. They're super affordable (I think the set was fifty bucks),...

Re: Recommend Me Some Room Tuning Software

Do you have to buy their recommended $70 test mic, or can you use a reasonably flat-response condenser?

Re: What musical thang didja work on today/night?

I've got a new(ish) baby in the house so my creative time is very limited. I've got a new routine where for one hour every weekend I sneak out to the studio and spend the whole hour on a vocal track for one song-in-progress my power trio's already laid down parts for. Today was slightly less satisfy...

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

A Nuvo "Dood", which seems to be a kid's starter clarinet with recorder leanings. Not the worst way I've spent $30. I got the black one with blue trim. I just saw a video of a guy playing a jazz classic on one. Sounded great, but I figure he's already an ace clarinetist. Seems like it might save so...

Re: XLR Patch panel - to build or buy premade?

When I built my place I had Redco build the panels. They have a cool site feature where you can mock up your panels starting with the size, then all of your connector types, then you can add any custom labeling you want (i.e. Iso 1, Live Room 1 etc). If I remember you can save your design to work on...

I buy guitar gear even less often than recording gear so it always feels like Christmas.

Re: Too much equipment. Trim down?

I recently hit a stage where when I want something I ask myself what its role is, and if I want it because something else in that role isn't giving me the results I want. Then I do this crazy thing where I buy something and sell something. It's been blowing my mind. You see I used to just get more s...

Re: Servicing AT mics

I played a basement show in Bloomington Normal one time, but no one was there because it was spring break and the only college kids in town were 2 of the 4 kids that were running the house show, venue, party place. Why didn't you call? ;) :P 2003, you missed out on an intimate performance of some i...
