Shit, that subject line made my heart pound. I don't even know you from a hole in the wall but it was going to suck to hear that you'd died. same here, dammit. Yeah I was freaked too. Hmm I guess I still have feelings after all. I think I'll stop and smell the flowers and not kick the dog on my way...

Cool! Is there a separate level control for echo and vibrato? No speed control? Ever hook up both through separate amps at the same time?

Some outside tracks are terrible and some are great. I do try to get the tracks before I quote a price. Sometimes you might be expected to comp, edit, tune (god forbid), or just make sense of a huge out of control project. I mixed something last week that a band recorded at home. The client knew it ...

VU - Pale Blue Eyes
Pretenders - "Kid" opening.
Marc Ribot - anything on Rain Dogs or Swordfish.
Django - many
I'm also a sucker for those Jeff Beck solo records from the 70's. Closest thing to shredding I enjoy.

I almost always use Stylus RMX. I have a huge library of loops, drum hits and textures, and they end up being used on almost every record I do. RMX (Rex) files are also easy to edit and stretch. They automatically conform to project tempo and you can edit the hits within a loop in seconds. Really co...

I used to do this all the time when I was mixing on a console. Exactly what drumsound and Gummy said, keep the eq and compression and start rebuilding the balance adjusting as needed. Always sounded better the second time around. It's just not the same violently pushing down virtual faders with a mo...

My classic is bright too but then again, so is a C12. I put a big U87 foam pop filter on mine. Knocks the top down a bit and retains the character of the mic all with no eq! I also prefer the original over the II version. On the right voice the Classic is REALLY good. The trick is knowing when to us...

Automation and\or multisamples.
I ride the real stuff up and samples down for fills when I have to.
It seems on some hit records they don't even bother making them sound natural.

I'm really sensitive to pitch.
I'm always pulling on guitar players strings while tracking to knock them flat and get the chord in tune.
Thing is an insanely out of tune Kinks, Link Wray, or Nick Cave record won't bother me at all, while other things make me crazy.

I just recorded a bass player who used a recent looking small solid state Ampeg combo. I think it was called the B115? Anyway, it was cheap and it recorded great. Nice sounding compressor built into it too. I was shocked that it recorded so well.

Now I wonder if my 012's are flipped?
Seems like when I use them under snare I always flip polarity like any other mic under there and it sounds right. Hmmm.

If I ever run into Glyn Johns the first thing I'm going to say is "So, do you know how to do the recorderman technique?"

My thoughts are that Rich Costey is amazing. Pretty much everything he does sounds huge, loud and really dynamic. I once read an eq (i think) article about how both the muse albums (Absolution, and Black Holes and other Revelations) were really dry and it surprised me because they seem so huge and ...
