Re: New Bunky Moon Single

Tasty! And now we know where that Blind Melon girl's vest went. :) Ironically, all that "bee guy" footage was actually filmed about eight years before that Blind Melon video came out. This was footage from a sort of student project someone I know shot when he was in high school. It's just pure coin...

New Bunky Moon Single

Hey guys, Since I got such a wonderful response from the Tape Op community on the release of our album (I was gonna say, "many moons ago," but then thought better of it), I thought I'd mention that my instrumental prog and classic rock trio, Bunky Moon, just released a new single. It's our version o...

Re: Check in Thread

As the weather has been nicer, my wife and I have been going for drives every few days. Just getting in the car, rolling the windows down, putting on some tunes, and just driving for a few hours. We head out of town and when we decide to turn left or right, we do it. We did about three hours (130 mi...

Re: DI bass and guitar

I usually just use a DI (usually an old Retrospec Juice Box tube DI), because it sounds ridiculously awesome and I can then dedicate my iso booths to either amps and vocals or drums and vocals or whatever. If there's room, I LOVE recording an amp and have a beautiful B15N or will use whatever. But i...

Re: Vinyl surface noise

I've heard about A LOT of people rejecting test pressings in recent years. At least people who have done this for a while and know what to listen for. If you care about how your record sounds, know who is doing your cutting and plating, use a reputable pressing plant, and make sure that A) the perso...

Re: Neve flavor

I kind of love them all-- Neve, API, Trident, Telefunken, Spectrasonics, etc. They all have their place and given any number of circumstances, can all sound great on anything. I find it comical to suggest that APIs aren't "for bass." They were designed "for everything" and they're great on everythin...

Or convince your client to spend $35 and you can make it my problem. :D
That's my mastering trick for getting things louder without screwing them up!

(Although in the "mix" world, Boz Labs' "The Wall" plugin is a great fairly transparent limiter when used carefully.)

Re: MADIXtreme Help?

Have you updated your recording software or iOs lately? The SSL MADI Xtreme stopped being supported by SSL in 2012. I ran into issues with this that ultimately led to me re-doing my entire system. The guys at SSL were absolutely zero help. If it seems like it will be of any help to you at all, I sti...

Re: What music stuffs are ya's doin' today?

I'm taking today off, but for the last couple weeks I've been recording drums remotely for a bunch of folks at the studio, including a couple of TOMB members. It's been a lot of work, but it's been fun! After a friend called and asked if I was able to do this (I had been mixing a bunch of stuff from...

I've done this with the sides of my calves, too. It's not as convincing as a group of people, but it works in a pinch.

Re: Favorite Hardware Reverb Unit

I've used a Bricasti and they're amazing, but I don't own one. Otherwise, I REALLY love the Klark Teknik DN-780. EMT plates are pretty fantastic (again, I don't own one, but I've used LOTS of them over the years). Sony DPS-R7s are also really cool and can be had super-cheap these days. Also really l...

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

I read a descrip of the Limpander cranked as like, "Velveeta in a dust storm". :twisted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSoaLLbHiDM I hadn't seen that video. It's a pretty good demo. Mine only had the input control on the front, but there were input, output, and a threshold control with screwdrive...

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

I went sort of nuts recently and bought a Dangerous Compressor and a BLUE-restored Telefunken U48. I also bought a Limpander from Mitch Easter. I'm loving all three!
