Re: witnessing a recording session

I would have love to have been at Blackberry Way as The Replacements recorded "Let It Be" or somewhere between Chateau d'Herouville & Hansa Studios when Iggy recorded "The Idiot".

Re: Infrasound...

I thought "Helmholtz" was responsible for the "Helmholtz Resonator"....a way of trapping frequencies and cancelling them out (commonly used in real studios) using a method not unlike a coke bottle...frequency goes in.....trys to come out ....and cancells itself.....a sort of frequency suicide.

Re: to click or not to click?

Just to plant a seed so you can see the value of using a click, knowing your time signature and BPM....you can calculate the proper delay in milleseconds of a 1/4 note using 60,000/BPM. Using that number.. Multiply by .5= 1/8 note Multiply by .25= 1/16 note Multiply by .666= 1/4 note triplets Multip...

Re: to click or not to click?

You need to find out how many BPM (Beats per minute) the piece is in...if you know how to count beats...try counting the number of beats in 15 seconds...multiply by 4 to get approximately the proper BPM...set your click at whatever that BPM number is..120...100..whatever and see how close you are......

Re: to click or not to click?

If you can play to a click, by all means do!.....if you can't play to a click....huh...it would be to your advantage to....with a click to reference you have alot of tools to acess later like tempo dependent delay, reverb times, ease of tracking rhythm later, etc.....all kinds of things to make a be...

Re: I'd like a new bass amp perhaps you could help.

I've been using a Fender 400 PS w/a Mesa Boogie 4x10 (Eden speakers) for 15 years now and I honestly don't think I've found anything else that knocks glassware off a club table at 300 feet quite like it. The Ampeg SVT was made in response to the Fender 400 from what I understand. There are a few out...

Re: Micing a Leslie?

Out of curiosity, has anyone seen the shareware called "AIPL Spin Cycle"?....It's a chumpy Leslie modeler that simulates micing a Leslie....I know it's kind of lame but I don't have a Leslie and it's an interesting way to play around. You can experiment with the speed of the bass and treble horns, v...

Double tracking lead vox

I'm looking for a little advice in regards to double tracking lead vocals....I understand that I'm looking for a sence of thickness and presence however I've not had the opportunity to work with a singer who was able to sing along to his own track well enough to really use it. What I've been doing i...
