Re: Pinkerton

A friend told me I might like the album Pinkerton by Weezer. I like the songs, they're great, but I don't really like the recording. To my ears it sounds really...uhm, I don't know what the word is...muffled, maybe? I am interested in hearing others thoughts on the recording of that record and whet...

Please, let's not say pitch. Can we just call them notes? We're talking about variance within a note. Microtones and all that. So no, no we can't. :P How about using the term "pitchy"? I'm of course being facetious but that's one term that always jumps out as being so silly to me. Most often I find...

I think reading is a great way to learn. Of course, the principles have to be put into practice to be understood and internalized. Information is information, written or whatever. And IMHO the best way to study a musical discipline--be it composition or mixing or jazz triangle--is to take in as much...

just a thought:

If I had a really clean digital keyboard that I was gonna record, I would be very inclined to dirty it up with some sort of transformer mojo. I have a GAP Pre73 that's perfect for such a task.

One time I was working with a really good singer and she complained about her pitch so I said "Hey! The *only* measure of a vocal should be the aesthetic impact. In your complaint, you are presuming that perfect pitch is the goal. It shouldn't be. While mathematically/theoretically "440" may be opt...
