Re: tell me about your unusual recording spaces

if it doesn't flood THE CRUCIAL BIT. Before sinking any money into a basement studio be absolutely sure it's waterproof. Trust me you don't want your studio to flood. Neighbors close by and stupidly loud bands means you're gonna need serious soundproofing unless you enjoy talking to the cops. If it...

Re: Recommend Me Some Room Tuning Software

Prepare to go down the wormhole. You're going to get so tired of hearing that sine sweep. But it is really super helpful. Acoustics is weird and counter-intuitive, and it's easy to make things worse. So keep the mic set up in the exact same spot and test every time you change anything. I know just e...

Gooloo

This is a good friend of mine's old band, from Chicago circa late 90s....and boy does it sound like it. They were never happy with the original master and wanted a nicer version for posterity so they dug their DATs out of the archive, and fortunately my trusty old Fostex DAT machine still works like...

Re: What musical thang didja work on today/night?

Opening the files I realized that we last worked on it exactly one year ago. This reminded me....my first solo record got started in 2001. Worked on it for a few months then it got shelved when I got busy with other stuff. It sat on the shelf for over a decade. At some point I was looking for somet...

Re: Power Amplifiers in 2019?

Big fan of the Hypex Ncore class D amps here. I built (and by built I mean assembled) a pair of their monoblocks to replace my old Rotel RB1080 (no slouch!). They're wonderful. Blazing fast, super clear, headroom for miles, can't say enough good things about them. Dead quiet, there's no fan. https:/...

Re: Tracking Unusual Instruments

I was going to do a fake New Age album with soothing classical guitar and rain sticks with the shrill hateful sounds of angry cockatiels. :D :D :D :D :D I love this so much. My mom has a cockatiel, ms morespace likes to flirt with him, and when he's being charming he makes these super sweet r2d2-li...

Re: Procedural Question - file naming and organization

Thanks for the kind words you guys, really means a lot!

Didn't they do like 96 mixes of "Billie Jean"? Kinda reassuring to know even the greats can drive themselves crazy. At least they had the wisdom to go back to the second one.

Re: Click tracks. Love them/Hate them.

I record all my solo stuff to a click, but I never use the actual metronome click because....eeeesh no. Just the thought gives me a headache. A few thoughts: 1. playing to a beat is a million times better than just the donk donk donk of a metronome 2. make the beat something drastically different to...

Re: Let's talk guitar amp recording

If you are, I am also Satan...I haven't mic'd an amp in years. For me the workflow is just a million times easier with amp sims. I can sit in the sweet spot and adjust the tone in context, no headphones, no killing my ears. If you'd have told me this 10 years ago I'd have said you were crazy, but he...

You got the Scott part right, but it was Scott Litt.

I'm not too into the sound on "Nevermind" but I love Andy Wallace's work on SY's "Dirty", sounds great and more importantly, it's really FUN to listen to.
