It looks cool. I downloaded them. They're 256kbps, but whatever. I'm terrible at remixing, but it'll still be fun!

My roommate is convinced that Mayer used Autotune all over his latest record. I can hear it sometimes, sometimes I can't. Crazy. I dun like it.

Are You Experienced, Hendrix. Sounds like crap. Terrible fades and edits and panning. But is oh so good.

Sonic Youth's noise stuff...SYR...

So, I'm a little behind the times, but I was recently introduced to Sonic Youth's SYR-series of albums. Well, 1-4 anyway. I've listened through the first two now, and, dare I say, it's actually something I can listen to. Don't get me wrong, I'm usually one of those people that is the first to turn o...

IV. It has When the Levee Breaks. I dun care if that drum sound ruined music or whatever it is people hate about that song. It rocks my face off every time I hear it. Each time it comes on it's like I'm hearing it for the first time. Woot.

No kidding! I want to do that eventually...a welder's sort of essential, and I don't have one. Money money money...

I did just replace the clutch in my Saturn myself. That was a blast :roll:

Replies: 3
Views: 1302

the big thing i've learned so far is that the market in almost every city is way over-saturated with tiny startup labels... which isn't a bad thing in itself, but does tend to shift the balance towards the bands winning acclaim for their labels, as opposed to the opposite. I've noticed. I started d...

Do any of you small studio owners also run small labels?

If yes, how did you get that started? I am quite masochistically and maniacally thinking about starting a small label. I am in no way under any illusion that I'd be making money at all. In fact, I know theres's a 99.9999999999% chance I'll lose all of my money that I put into it. I understand this i...

Jackpot Records t-shirt spotted in a non-TapeOp mag!

Didn't know if this is the place for this, but... I get Grassroots Motorsports, the DIY car magazine, and in the current issue, there is an article about Brett Stereli (sp?), who built a Mazda Miata-powered Ford Cortina, which is sweet as hell. On the second or third page of the article, there's a p...

I disagree, because when I record myself playing guitar, it sounds like crap (and that's not just me being hard on myself), but my friend playing guitar with the same setup and same instrument sounds great. No amount of correction can make me sound good as a guitar player. But I do agree that the po...

Yea, nothing in this movie will come as a galloping shock to anyone on this board, but for your average person, it rocks.

It's about as cliche'd as a reversed cymbal crash and then a short pause before the first chord of a metalcore song :D

But I enjoy them both. Cliches can sound good. Depends on the record and the band.

We just had a guy give a drum tuning workshop in our studio at school...after he tuned the kit, we very quickly and very haphazardly threw mics onto the kit, and it sounded incredible. Tune that snare, and I guarantee your overhead sound gets 100% better.

I'm doing a semester-long project on this album. I know a sickening amount about it. And I still enjoy listening to it haha :lol: Sounds great, too.
