thanks adam. yes, i think we could have done some re-tracking of a few parts, and fine tuned things further for a decent recording. they really did accomplish a lot for just 20 hours of basic tracking time.

a little detachment would soften the blow i suppose. i cant help but feel connected to a project, and want to see it through to completion. there is something satisfying about that kind of accomplishment, but many hands can make light work i suppose. i don't really record often enough these days to ...

thanks for the encouragement nick. i am friends with the guy who will be mixing it, so maybe i'll ask him for some input on how i can improve things at least on the recording side. he is actually the guy who helped me put together my first d.a.w. setup back in 1995, and is super talented.

i agreed to do the mixing for free because i knew they would not be able to afford the amount of time i would put into it. we actually worked out a trade for it. they gave me a chihuahua for my daughter in exchange for the mixing. the dog is sweet, and my kid is stoked, so i figured that was cool. i...

boid: i had been communicating with them through email. we had talked about getting everyone together to work on the mixing as a group, and doing any additional overdubs and fixes they felt necessary. then the next email i got was asking for the files. i was so bummed/surprised i just dropped off th...

i can't speak for the ath-m50's but about seven years ago i bought five pairs of ath m30's for my home studio because they were on sale, and i wanted the band i was working with to all be listening on the same set of cans. they are all still working great. very durable. they have survived countless ...

that is a bummer. well, these ladies did pay me for the time spent tracking, so i have no complaints there. i did not plan to charge them for the time spent mixing so nothing lost, other than the time i did spend rough mixing, and cleaning up their tracks. still, i can't help but feel invested in th...

thanks chris

you're right, i guess i am not ok with it. :D i just wish i could have got a chance to work on these songs more. a rough mix is, well... rough. i just handed them the hard drive yesterday, and have been dwelling on it all day... i appreciate the input, and the listen. cheers.

i quit

i bought my first four track back in 1983, and have been recording projects for myself and friends ever since. recently i did a demo recording for a group of friends here in eureka. we recorded 15 songs in two nights. kind of quick and dirty. i made a rough mix of each song for them from the takes t...
