I have thought the same thing.

Not that I want him to come back or anything.

The studios I worked at that used tape always bought pancake reels ? 1/4" and 1/2". It was much cheaper. But whenever I loaded up a reel from a pancake I always put a reel flange on top. For the reason Gregg outlined, it only makes sense. You do NOT want to find yourself trying to spool back 2600 fe...

I dunno if facebook commenting, trip advisor, yelp reviews...are an indicator of anything, it's that using real names doesn't seem to prevent a lot of people from being rude and confrontational. Not attacking you, just stating what I've noticed...too many people bitching and being awful to each oth...

The last few DWLB projects have been done entirely over the internet, since I live in Chicago and Chris lives in Austin. He will upload a demo with multis, I'll throw it into PT and add overdubs. I send a reference mix back to him, he adds to it. Repeat as needed. Eventually I start editing it all d...

EDIT: Also, I've started feeling weird about posting under "Judas Jetski" when the trend seems to be toward either using your own name or some sort of blank identifier (i.e. Judas538754 or what have you). It seems much more IRL-ish. Which in turn somehow seems a lot less fun. I dunno, maybe it's ju...

Finally putting my new studio together. I moved house in October and -very long story very short- haven't been able to do much beyond the bare minimum setup-wise until now. I had a barebones setup for the last couple months of sound design and podcast work, but now that I'm more or less between proj...

It's a circular thing - I used to be here much more often (and I'm not saying I was one of the good folks) and then things kinda slowed down, and I in turn showed up less frequently. I don't tend to start too many threads, so if there's nothing to read/respond to, there's little reason to stop by.

Has TOMB been really slow lately?

...or is it just me? Pages were taking up to ten minutes to load last night. TOMB is consistently the slowest site I visit, and has been for months now.

Or am I just crazy?
