Just found a Wurlitzer 214A EP in the trash down the street from my house. It's pretty hammered, but powers up, and a little bit of sound comes out of the headphone jack. Also, the vibrato works. STOKED!!! The house in question had been shared until recently by a guy who played with Eric Clapton for...

FREE - Ampex 300 transports - no record amps - Tulsa, OK.

I have seven Ampex 300 transports if anyone wants to come pick them up. There are no record electronics! They came from an 8 track cartridge duplication line, which had a master set of record electronics that fed to a bunch of these machines. They're pretty old and dusty on the outside, but pretty c...

I've got about 12, besides the stuff that comes with PT. I have the same eq and compressor (McDsp Filterbank, and Compressorbank) on each channel). I use a Mix era system for most of my recording, which doesn't have delay compensation, so I have to use the same plugins on a group of instruments anyw...

I keep set hours at my studio, so I can meet family responsibilities. I know that's not the norm in the studio world, but I insist on it. I'm up front about the times I'm available, and that I need to stay within those parameters. That way, everyone knows what to expect, and it's worked out well.

The Bad Brains' ROIR cassette was/is one of the most awesome records ever... and it's definitely not recorded well. Maybe that's part of it's charm.

Another OWC lover here. I've got one pair (primary and backup) that I've been running for 5 years with no problems. I've got a bunch of their others too, and they've been fantastic. Lately I've been using their "Neptune" line. Inexpensice, and still work great. I like to get pairs of the same capaci...

Joel, I couldn't remember if you recorded or were in Shiner, I'm selling two 7" records. One is the Shiner/Molly McGuire split on Hit It! records and another is on Desoto, it has two songs "Brooks" and "Released." I don't see your name on the credits for either Joel. I wasnt on either of those. My ...

That off center snare is exactly why I've changed and changed every drum session until I finally tapped into something that works for me. Mono overhead, that's pretty much key - I really like an Omni pattern just above and slightly in front of the drummers head. For stereo imaging, I do a few diffe...

New Massey plug in... free to registered users.

Maybe everyone knows, but I hadn't seen it mentioned so... Steve Massey just put up a free plug in for registered users called DTM (Drums To Midi). It's an audio suite plugin that analyzes drum tracks, and creates a midi file of the hits. If you already own one of his plugins, and you log into the u...

I've been using it recently, and from what I can tell so far, I prefer it to Beat Detective. Much faster to use, and less "choppy" sounding if you're getting ugly with editing.
