What my colleagues in the film and theater fields are finding is that Kickstarter --like other fundraising tools-- is not a set-it-and-forget-it type of thing. You need to do the same amount of hustling and promo and outreach that you'd do to get folks out to a show. And, of course, you need to be ...

Okay, suppose this, "What if the only goal of a release is to make it's money back?" what kind of crazy person would have that as a goal? let alone "the only" goal. would you want to listen to that record? I just had a conversation with a guy who wants me to help him produce a sampler and his only ...

Well, Kickstarter seems to be having some success, so crowdfunding is a proven concept at this point. This is slightly different but could work if the artists involved can produce enough material that the "subscription" is worth it to the consumer. Yes, but like ebay, there's a threshold. I've post...

It's the Furman HDS6 system. Have had no problems with Beyer, Sony, or AKG cans blowing with this same system. I've heard of other studios having similar reliability problems with the 280s, as well. I'd love to believe it was somehting more easily-fixable than buying several new sets of headphones ...

Okay, suppose this, "What if the only goal of a release is to make it's money back?" That would mean that the artist would be paid for their labor- like someone working hourly in a grocery store. Maybe each disc should therefore post how many man hours were spent making that disc. Once that cost is ...

I love the way the 280s sound and feel, but I've probably been through eight sets of those things in the last six years when one side of them goes out. To me, that's just too unreliable for day-to-day studio use by a bunch of different people. I'm currently on a search for something else. Chris Gar...

Why Sennheiser headphones are simply the best

I've had a pair of HD580 headphones since 1996. Since then I've replaced the cable twice and am about to do it for the third time. I'm also about to replace ear pads for the first time. http://www.sennheiserusa.com/serviceandsupport_part-finder This kind of nominal price, self-repair is awesome. Mos...
