On every record I have been a part of, individual instruments were faded as they fell off at mix time, but the overall fade was left for the ME. I totally see some of the resons for doing so, but truth be told, I see myself possibly trying to at least do passes of both faded and non-faded (for ass-s...

I also swear by CDEX with LAME encoder. I rip everything at the "INSANE" preset, which is 320kbps. This feels like a happy medium for me....not quite the original quality, but damn close...good anough for my ipod, anyway. On a related note, I have also done tests with iTunes' encoding...what a joke....

David - You got some solid tracks there! You should be proud. I'll be picking up the album for sure. Chris - Great work all around! BGV and steel sound real nice in the mix. Dig the bells on the first tune, too. Stu *wishing he knew a pedal steel player* Much appreciated, Stu! Thanks! I was wishing...

My New Record, Chris Garges, enjoy, etc....

Hey guys... I just got done wrapping up a new record that I'd been putting together for for the last year and a half or so. The record was kind of a joint effort between Chris Garges and I and was a lot of fun to do. Chris and I basicly had a long distance recording thing happening where I sent him ...

Mark... Thanks, man! I really appreciate the compliments. Actually the songwriter thing is probably about the best compliment I could get these days as far as I'm concerned. Chris... I still can't believe that, man....that's just totally nuts. Of course it's the new gear...it's always the new gear. ...

I wanted to give this a bump. I know I have already said this, but mastering has taken kind of a while. We got a bit tweaky with it. I'm down to 2 versions (rev3 and 4) and I'm going to have to figure it out quick because this thing needs to get to pressing. Ha! I have honestly never gotten this gee...

Recent email correspondence with Mitch Easter about Dave's album and the success of the inaugural Amek session: Me: In fact, we had nine days booked to mix ten songs and we were done in six days. That NEVER happens to me. It really was the total ideal and I wish all my sessions could be like that. ...

I just did a record where just about everything (ac/el guitars, vocals, mando, harmonica, whatever) went through the TLA50 in some way. To me, the trick is using is very sparingly. I tended to let it really hit on some things....different things at different times, but most of the time I barely move...

Just a quick update on my part of this:

So true! Have you driven with Garges? That boy is not afraid of the accelarator! Maybe, but Dave's "________ in a _______ MPH zone" is really impressive. Chris Garges Charlotte, NC I have NOT driven with Garges, actually. He might not be fast enough for me. :wink: I think what garges is too polite ...

Heart of the Matador and Freeze Motherstickers are in pretty much constant rotation here at the ranch. :^:
Thanks, man! I really appreciate that. Though, I should warn you...the new stuff is definitely a departure from either of those records.
