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...

Mastered a nice record. Heading out to the studio now for late-night shenanigans.

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.

Re: drum samples in heavy music: When did it begin????

I'm 99.9999% sure there's no samples on MoP, and to me, that's one of the last metal records where the drums sound like more or less normal drums. I don't think there's any samples on AJFA either, but you don't need samples when the drums are that stupidly loud in the mix and there's no bass. I'm pr...

Should he go back to Windows 7 on the new machine to get better driver support?
I prefer 7 to 10 by a wide margin, but 7 is 'old' and if he's already got 10 on the machine, just keep that. Driver support shouldn't be an issue, everything should work with 10.

Re: Need Advice: How to Modernize Layla 24/96s?

Sorry, I should've been more specific. PCI is the outdated tech, not PCI-e.
