Re: "real people music"

yeah the whole quest for some imagined "authenticity" is a really dubious path to go down. when i saw daniel j, (a year or 2 ago, i guess,) it kinda felt like i had lined up in a 3-block queue to watch a human being fall apart. i mean, he has done some great great stuff, but he was pretty much a mes...

Re: Tracking just the BASS to cassette, the rest to digi!

for the question about getting the taped audio off a cassette deck, this can only be done with a 3-head deck. that's what the 3rd head does- plays the sound off of the tape, even while you're recording. there's obviously a delay though, which was addressed previously. 2nd- maybe i'm wrong, but i alw...

Re: analog(ue) synthesizers.

props to bitdump- my sixtrak is my only legit analog. it's like the secret sleeper analog- they don't fetch the totally inflated ebay prices of some of their more legendary analog brethren. i've been thinking about getting a midi controller to control more of its parameters in realtime. as is, you c...

Re: Can I make this guitar look cool and less death metal?

firstly, "cool and less death metal" sounds like an oxymoron to me. :twisted:

secondly, it looks just like a fake sg body. so paint its ass cherry red or something. and put some stickers on it.

Re: Jay Bennett's comment re front-back space

I believe I read somewhere that Jimmy Page was known to mutter "distance makes depth" while in the studio, referring to distance miking. being that we're talking about zep, my guess is that page was just uttering some obscure humping reference, sort of like "the bigger the waistband, the deeper the...

Re: Anyone know a good cheap way to record phone calls?

i'll second yardleyone's reply. the cheapo radio shack thing works for me. the one i have puts out a mic level signal on a mono 1/8" thing. i use a 1/8" to 1/4" adaptor (also conveniently available at radio shack,) and send that into a 1/4" in on a mackie board, and from that into my computer.

Re: Singer had this forward thinking idea

Besides a feedback destroyer, is there a way to somehow split the signal??? Or would that be a no??
yeah- a mic splitter. it's just a box with one mic input and three outputs. totally passive. proco makes em. they're often handy to have.
