Re: tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

think gooey and dark stuff - juno 60 and nord electro mostly. What phaser or choruses do you like to use for something like this? standard ehx small stone slow the rate down, try an mxr phase 90 as well. for chorus the Juno has a chorus built in, or you can forgo that and just do something in the m...

Re: tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

have you tried some simple modulation? slight chorusing or phasing can usually help it to move (you can keep the rate slower so it moves but not wobbles) and give it more shimmer. i'm guessing these are sawtooth brassy type patches from synths?

Re: Tascam 388 Muddy Recording

i always had trouble with the 388's i owned, i was never able to get good bass sounds they were too distorted on the low end and it was a muddy sound. one of the things that did help though was using heavy stock tape. the 1 mil LPR35 was too thin for me, i used 1.5 mil SM911 or NOS 1.5 mil tape and ...

Re: Tascam 388 Muddy Recording

you need to use 90+ percent isopropyl alcohol. rubbing alcohol is too weak i believe.

Re: Interview Idea

agreed Larry, i loved how the whole issue was based on Tweedy, The Loft et al. I"m not even a Wilco fan but all the interviews combined gave a really nice view of how they work and the studio and just another way to do the studio/recording thing. bravo.

Re: Etsy is buying Reverb

yeah i just read this as well. if you read up on the current owner of Reverb and Chicago Music Exchange, he does this with things he creates. He had some business he sold so he could buy CME for 7.5 million. I'd say he made out pretty well (and he still owns CME). I love CME, to me its the best musi...

Re: Looking for mixer to pair with Fostex R8

do you record by yourself 4 or less inputs at at time? or are you recording 5-8 tracks? i ask because you can get away with a 4 buss machine if you're recording by yourself. the fostex machines have a feature where you plug inputs into Input 1-4, and leave 5-8 empty. when you are tracking those 5-8 ...

I really dislike The Black Keys but that album he did with Auerbach, Locked Down, might be in my top 10 of all time. I saw him at a festival in Chi in the early 90's and he did not look healthy, but sounded great. He walked on gilded splinters.
yeah that record is amazing.
