Re: The Worst Music in the world

Hm. I have a bunch of tunes up on Garageband. Where are yours posted? 'Cause I'm sure they're amazing. I have six platinum records that I am staring at right now so I think I have earned the right to talk a little shit. I was writing hit songs when these kids were still crawling to the accordian. I...

Re: Hunting down a buzz

I once had a buzz and I "reduced" to just the mixing desk and the monitors, and still the buzz persisted. I wanted to murder passerbys because this shit is extremely annoying....then one day I decided to listen to some music in the "control room" with the lights off, and after about three drunken mi...

Re: please critique this song

Thanks for the feedback. It is very helpful. Unfortunately, this thing is already mastered and going to press in a few days. But on future recordings, I will keep the Ending suggestions in mind, and think more about the overall presentation. The vocals are indeed flat and the harmonies too loud..I f...

Re: Please critique my recording... indie rock stuff

This is a cool song. It reminds me of the Treepeople in the way that the guitars are intricate and raw sounding. Man this shit sounds really good for cheap ass mics! I've heard stuff that doesn't sound half this good recorded with u87s and Super nice pres...Good job on the recording, and the songwri...

Re: please review this song

I agree with the whole "stereo field" thing. We were just arguing about that recently. This is an old recording and we have since remedied the issue, but, yeah we were pretty "pan crazy" when we mixed this EP. Yes we had this mastered at SAE mastering here in Phoenix. It was recorded on a 1/2" Otari...

need a stand alone cd recorder to mix to.....

I need a cd recorder to mix our 8 track reel to reel songs to. We don't have a functioning computer, but need to get the songs into the digital domain. I was wondering if there is any general consensus on which one (300-350.00) I should be looking at. I saw a few at Guitar Center, but the sony was 5...

Otari MX5050 1/2" 8 trk overdub problem

I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem.. When I am Punching in on a track I can't be in record mode on that track and simultaniously hear what is on said track, so I have to kind of guess where I should punch. I can EITHER hear the previously recorded sound on the track, OR, hear the wh...
