Wax Poetics

Wax Poetics magazine had a cover feature on the Meters a couple months back. You should check it out. I should mention that a lot of the people mentioned in the "I wish TapeOp would interview..." thread have also been featured in months previous.

Re: help....digital clicks/glitches on my recordings

i won't pretend that i know a lot about macs, but when i first got started on pc i got a lot of clicks and pops that were related to my card and settings, but i also had a lot of clicks and distortion because of power settings, and screen savers. maybe something to look into.

Re: anyone worked with Cravedog?

i did a disk through cravedog. it was no hassle, and cheap to boot. i was sold once i heard what the shipping would be.. $50 freight! no UPS! compared to my last runs which were done in canada and then mailed to me ground, this was a major blessing!

Re: Streaming XML Files on a Mac

if i'm right, its only the tracklist info that's in XML, and that's being loaded into a generic flash player. i could be horribly wrong, but i would check that you have shockwave and the newest flash stuff installed.

Re: Need your advice: master CD level

i will second what most people are saying here, and perhaps offer some insight into what other non-engineer types think about "mastering". i work at a record store (with a single disk player), and i listen to at least 8 albums a day, if not significantly more when everyone plays nice and stays away ...

Re: reccomend cheap/quality cd pressing place

for reproduction, i've used bellwether twice and cravedog once. they both got the job done well, and on the relative cheap. the difference between the two is the hidden cost of shipping. bellwether subcontracts all of their jobs to canada, which leaves you stuck with the bill of freighting your 1000...

if you're gonna wait for anything, wait for an ipod type device that will record.
