Have you hooked up with the "Playing for Change" dude yet? http://www.playingforchange.com/ Maybe his non-profit could donate to your non-profit as a pass through. This is, actually, a good idea--though I'm guessing time lines would preclude exploring such a partnership at this point. It is nice to...

Just got Gigbaby and Retro Recorder. The former is a $0.99 4-track, the latter is just a straight up recorder by McDsp (it has some new format that they claim is better/louder, seem louder in my tests. Gigbaby is pretty damn cool for a buck. The also have Gigdaddy for $3 which has panning, some edit...

There was an article in TapeOp quite a while ago about a guy teaching recording at a charter school in Chicago. My professional life is around education/training and I've been nursing this idea that you could build a complete middle school curriculum that would run 1-2 years all around the creation ...

I think it's an excellent question to ask. The mere fact that you're asking it tells me you're likely to find a happy medium. For me, and I think most on this board, gear is fun. A lot of it is cool and does cool stuff. However, I at least know that at my strictly hobbyist level, I have no conceivab...

I have the "Magicstomp" multi effects pedal that allegedly is the SPX90 in a foot pedal. Sadly, it seems to have taken the winter poorly and is not turning on well. I really liked it :(

Comfortstarr, are you recording to the system drive then? I am hearing conflicting opinions as to whether or not this should be done. Some people swear up and down that it is fine, while others insist that--whether partitioned or not--the drive will fail sooner if used as both a system and a data d...

I run a couple of metric halo interfaces, one into the other, then into the iMac (with firewire 400>800 little converter deal). I record directly on to an un-partitioned hard-drive (it was my understanding that partitioning was no longer a big deal). I rarely record more than one source at a time, b...

Some new LL Bean slippers. My studio is in my attic and these are vital to winter-time recording.

istrobosoft. It's peterson's iphone tuner app. It's $9.99 but it's probably the best 10 bucks I've spent for music related equipment in the last 10 years.

Mistakes

http://www.npr.org/blogs/monitormix/2009/11/the_death_of_mistakes_means_th.html?sc=fb&cc=fp I hope this hasn't been posted before. It's not very deep, but nice to see such commentary in the mainstream media (if quite buried). P.s. I'm mostly referring to the part of the article on mistakes. The loud...

I don't know much about softsynths--the ones in Logic give me all that I can handle. But this does look kind of interesting and it pretty durn cheap.

Re: i

i think what everyone is getting at is that the person that recorded it probably doesnt even remember how they got it to sound like that. why are you so concerned with getting yours to sound exactly like that? the last thing i would want is for someone to say "hey! your kick sounds exactly like tha...
