Re: Mixing with Stems... my CPU smells like burning!

Right on- looking forward to hearing it! I went to SAE- it was pretty good, but the NYC school got a lot better after I left. We were working with some pretty torn up equipment when I went. But, hey- real world education, right? I think the industry sucks everywhere on the East Coast right now. I gu...

Re: Music store salesperson disgust today

I dislike music shop guys and sound guys. Pretty much intensely, pretty much universally. But both groups have an excuse for their ridiculousness: they have to work with musicians... Not that I disagree with your dislike of that breed of guy, (even though I fall in to the sound guy category-or at l...

Re: 21,000 dead in Asia.

Ahhh...I finally figured out where I'm gonna go, when I finally give up on life. The place is called Phuket. Yeah, I'm just gonna say... 'phuket' and go fade out into the sunset, in Phuket, Thailand. Not a bad place to do that (other than the occasional natural disaster)- it's insanely cheap to liv...

Re: Music store salesperson disgust today

We worked on commission only and I preferred it that way - if I hustled, I wanted to get compensated for it and, generally speaking, I did VERY well. Fair enough, but it doesn't work that way with a lot of shops. My boyfriend works in what used to be a boutique/mom&pop place, but was bought out by ...

Re: Help me buy headphones for my studio!

The click can always be a problem no matter what phones you use so the cure would be headphone volume and such. Yeah, like I said- it's usually an easy problem to fix, but we've had major issues with that! Part of the problem is that between the crappy headphones and cue boxes that are probably on ...

Re: Mixing with Stems... my CPU smells like burning!

Wow... thanks for the compliment! It's a rough mix that I did in Nuendo. I mixed it in my temporary living space (bedroom) I haven't had a dedicated home studio in months, and it's been killing me. I used to have a nice room in my house set up as a studio with my monitors tuned in the room... but t...

Re: Music store salesperson disgust today

Of course, half the customers are losers with no jobs who come in to the shops to kill time while these poor bastards are living on commission only paychecks! Damn. It's a loose-loose situation! Woah, rewind... commission only?!?!? If you don't sell you don't get paid? Is this how it is in the big ...

Re: Music store salesperson disgust today

I totally agree. My boyfriend works in a well-known music shop in NYC & he's not an asshole. He's actually GREAT with customers- helpful, not condescending, knowledgeable, and not afraid to admit when he doesn't know something. However, even HE will say a lot (if not most) of music store employees a...

Re: Mixing with Stems... my CPU smells like burning!

You have a really nice sense of space! I think that's definitely one of the most obvious good qualities of the mix. Is it final & mastered or just a rough mix or....? I think there are a couple places where the vocal gets a little buried & there's a hi-end crunchy thing happening in a few places (no...

Re: for something completely else.

It sounds like it might be kinda cool, but there's only about 6 seconds of audio, so it's hard to really tell.

Re: Music store salesperson disgust today

Well, you know, since he works in a music store, he obviously knows more about gear than you do, right? I mean, that's why they hire people like that in music stores- because they have a vast product knowledge and infinite skill. Right?
