Wow, thanks for the kind words and the good advice! It is much appreciated. I have the month of August off, and that's when I'm going to be doing all those little things like fixing small bits and pieces, so I need lots of suggestions for that. I should have mentioned that both vocals are scratch tr...

Shamelessly bumping this once more, since I just posted two new mixes I'd love to get some feedback on. They can be found here: http://jupiterwatts.blogspot.com/2009/07/last-two-for-bit.html In particular, I'm curious what folks think about the melodica part on the first song, "one by one." I was re...

Interesting - I've never had any such problems, but I only run them at 44.1, so maybe that's it. I'll have to do some experimenting with that when I get a chance - thanks!

Funny, I was just thinking about upgrading my two 1010s, which I sync via wordclock - where can I find out more about the improvement using S/PDIF? I've never heard this before...

best cheap, decent electronic piano for a kid

So, this isn't entirely a tape-op kind of question, but I'm looking to find a cheap portable keyboard for my niece, who's turning 9. It needs to be something that provides a relatively realistic piano experience (especially sound and velocity-sensitivity) but is still relatively small and portable a...

Hi again, There's a new post up with another rough mix; this was a sort of "problem" song that we like a lot better now. It would be great to hear some comments, especially since a number of tapeoppers have stopped by without saying anything!: http://jupiterwatts.blogspot.com/2009/06/mysteries-of-ph...

New quiet psych record in Atlanta...

Hi all, I'm doing my first serious, full-on album project at home after years of screwing around, collecting gear, reading Tape-Op, etc. We have a good band, good equipment, etc. - I'm just the bass player/recording geek. We just had our first session over Memorial Day weekend, and we're going to be...

I've heard Wizard isn't on their game lately - both Earthshaking Music in East Atlanta and Atlanta Pro Audio have a once-a-week pick up guy, I'd think either of those would do you fine.

Sad to hear it - the 600 is a great board, and I actually think that's a pretty good price, if it's in good shape. The patchbay is awesome, too, though; BUT it's often a source of problems in these older boards, so skipping it might be a good thing. Anyway, it sure won't give you any compression, bu...

The brief of which he speaks is a mechanical process. Music is not mechanical. Oh, forgot about this part. If the brief is mechanical, why don't they just have a machine write it? I'm wondering if you've ever seen a legal brief. Or thought about why people consider some lawyers to be better than ot...

Once again, you know not of what you speak. I'll take it bit by bit... However, that person is also not gaining anything financial from the brief- unless you consider winning the case in court. I'm quite certain most attorneys are paid rather well, in fact, win or lose. Especially lawyers of the cal...

I don't have much to compare to, but when I switched from Vegas (yeah, yeah) to Sonar a few years ago, the difference was HUGE. I think Sonar sounds awesome. And it does have the 64-bit internal business going on. I also have never noticed much about the mixdown from Pro Tools LE in the last few yea...

Why do men make records? Because they can't have babies. And I actually think this is pretty awesome, too! Really?!? I mean, I get that it's all about creating something and nurturing it. I just think that this is an idiotic way of stating that. So, why do women make records? And, what conclusions ...

I agree wholeheartedly! And we're in good company - so does Lawrence Lessig!
