Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Re: The Nighttripper

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.

Re: tracking headphones 2019 (for the performers)

I just tell 'em to bring their own.

If they don't, I might give 'em a old pair of Magnavox that seem top weigh like 10 lbs., at least to try at first.

They bring their own the next time.

RIP Leon Redbone

https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/31/entertai ... index.html

In a 1974 interview with Rolling Stone, Dylan said of Redbone: "I've heard he's anywhere from 25 to 60... I can't tell. But you gotta see him."

Re: Is my situation condusive to a Monitor puchase?

FWIW, I'm a big believer in using different listening sources and formats.

I drop various stages of mixes (ruff, version 1 & 3, final, etc.) in mp3 or wave or FLAC onto a digital player (like a Ipod but not) and listen on the train, shopping, taking moms to the doc, etc.

Keep your headphones, add the monitors. Listen on both. Wait, save a few hundred bucks and then buy some OC 703, some fabric and some hardware and try and tame your room a little more.

Step by step....
This.

You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

Unless you're trying to say the tracks are pregnant with possibilities.
Really?

(And I like that Greasefire track, also - sounds yuge. Now, if only he was playin' a jizzmaster ... :twisted:)

Re the multi-amps to one played part thing, I first read of that re Alice in Chains' Dirt in, I think, Guitar Player.

Re: Mixing a band with a single, mono electric guitar

A subtle thing I learned here fairly recently is two mic's, a close one and a room mic pointed sideways. To that config I'll usually have the close a ribbon or dynamic, the room a ribbon or condensor. I'll usually put a compressor on the room. I like a dirtier pre up close, driving tranny, and a cle...

Both songs are mixed thru a global compressor and reverb patch. There are kinda abbreviated notes in the "lyrics" ...
