Sustainable recording and touring practices

Hi I am looking to learn more about what artists and recordists can do or have done to promote sustainable / eco-friendly recording or touring practices.....even audio manufacturers who have embraced these ideas and put them into their processes. - Recycling/re-using - Energy efficient powering - Lo...

I agree with the assertion that Ian Curtis likely didn't even know he was out of key and he probably wasn't even a very "good singer". The thing that made his vocals special was the quality of his low voice--and--I believe--the way his emotions would swing from almost an outside observer to being ve...

Wish I put 'mastering' on there.

Anyone else making any money in their home studios or is it mostly hobby-oriented, etc.? What kind of niche work are you getting?

Thks

POLL: How do you PROFITABLY use your HOME studio?

Hi gang....I am interested to find out how everyone is using their HOME studios FOR PROFIT. Hopefully one of the categories below applies to you.......please choose which one is MOST relevant to your HOME studio--and check the "I don't really record for profit' if that applies too (be honest!!) Obvi...

I'll take this opportunity to say that I never understood why Pro Tools / Digidesign deserved to have such a 'death grip' on the industry. I'm sorry, but it's just not that good and the whole argument about latency is pretty much gone due to faster processors and better component design. Why have so...

Love 'em.....Bizzarro did it for me. That is a band where it doesn't f-ing matter who is recording or producing them, as long as the mic works and as long at it is hitting tape.

Saw them at Brixton Academy (London) in Spring of '89--spectacular show.

Paul Dufour, drummer of the Libertines, was 54 when he joined the band. Also the drummer of the One Ones was pretty old when he joined I think.

I think Keith Richards has proven to us all that if you have a shred left of your mortal self, you can still play-right?

FYI, I got Apple on the phone and they removed the song length limitation in Logic 8. :) There was apparently some MIDI limitation that caused users to have to set up maximum length in advance, but it is now gone--which is a good thing. Apple says Logic will record as long as you need it to, provide...

Can anyone else help? Will I encounter a time limitation in a Logic 8 song when recording a large or long time duration? Is there any settings I have to adjust?

Logic 8: song length limitations?

Hi: I am doing a remote recording gig tomorrow which will be a 3 hour, non-stop performance. There will be no time for re-calibrating if I don't get it right the first time when I hit 'record." I seem to recall in Logic 6 or 7 that you had to set a 'maximum song length' but for the life of me, I can...

I've been struggling with the HD vs. non-HD for some time. I too don't like DIGI or their pricing tactics. My guess is that many, many of the other manufacturers feel the same way and would love to see this 'standard' for commercial studios disappear. To that end, I am leaning very heavily towards a...

To respond to original topic.... I think it is more common for 'audio for video' studios to be going console-less. For them (if they have clients in) a console can be a distraction to clients. They want 100% focus to be on the video or the commercial, whatever, and keep the whole 'engineering statio...
