Re: Not so dry basement. HELP Please!

that sounds like a good idea, buth how tall is your room now? Before the puddle came into play I was planning on splitting the room down the middle with sheetrock anyways, maybe I could part with maybe 2 inches off the floor but thats all. Luckily I still have about 17x27 feet of room to play with. ...

Re: Not so dry basement. HELP Please!

It's leaking in I think, from the middle/back neighbor side wall. My only guess if that there is a roof problem and the water is l...

Not so dry basement. HELP Please!

I recently moved into a new house(renting). I was told that the basement was dry. After some recent rain I noticed some water gathered. It's only on one side and its a localized puddle. Of course I'm going to tell the landlord. He has been great so far so I don't expect much trouble. My question is....

Re: New Deftones Album? Comments?

I haven't bought it yet, and I don't think that I will. A friend in my band had it and we listened to it before practice. After we were done with it I threw in the new pleasure fever ala Larry Crane. They both don't know anything about recording and or tapeop but they loved the CD. Every song sounde...

Re: New Deftones Album? Comments?

I think the new CD is a great example of modern mastering. The topic has been pretty hot lately. The CD doesn't get bigger when you turn it up. Is this just a problem when recording really loud records and mastering them to a low volume? I know it's different kind of music but when I listen to Soul ...

Just take some old spice Pure Sport to them. I have yet to smell a funk that old spice(pure sport) couldn't handle.

I really like the songs. Darkened Heart Vessels:bass is really boooming...Maybe to much of a good thing? shopping spree:I really like the guitars. Oh and the mp3 quality sounds noticably bad.
