That would be great! You have a nice room? :wink: That?s totally why my situation sucks right now. I mix in a Living Room, which sounds pretty good for mixing, but nothing near what I would need for that. But yes good call, that would be the best solution. Thanks Sorry, all I have is a basement!

Could playing back the tracks into a nice room a recording it with a couple mics do the trick?

Are the optical ins and outs on most Apple computers also S/PDIF? I have a TOSlink cable that I use with my MBP sometimes -- is this S/PDIF?

Maybe you could make your own using some static from freesound.org:

When they mixed Music from Big Pink there must have been a Garth Fader.

I wonder if the fact that he did a lot of backup singing as well contributes in some way to the creation of that space you're talking about.

I would be tempted to just use the two mics myself -- a lot less hassle! 57 over right shoulder or front of kit, and the kick. But I would be interested in hearing the iPhone room mic. Does the pillow work like a -10db pad or something? I imagine it would probably tame the cymbals substantially as w...

to maximize "stan lynch" effect, play consistently 20ms behind beat.
You expect a laid-back southern guy to play on top of the beat?

Whoops, actually it was the third album, the one that opens with Intruder. Spraying the cans. Steve Lillywhite produced that record -- he has a radio show on East Village Radio Tuesday afternoons -- you can just call him at the station and ask him questions, or twitter him beforehand. Sorry for the ...

Roscoe's suggestion reminds me of Peter Gabriel's fourth album, which they purposefully avoided cymbals on. They even used aerosol cans for hi-hats, if memory serves.

I know a lot less than you do, Chris, but I would go for a 7" snare and mic both sides for starters. I remember seeing pics of Lynch playing live in the 80s and he would use an RE20 in the kick and 421s on toms -- whether he did the same thing in the studio is of course a question. It was the 80s, s...

Yeah, he is English, but lives in California now (like McVie).

If you know the band XTC, they were really into Free.

For a similar bass sound, check out pretty much anything Andy Fraser did with Free (like McVie he was an alumnus of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, played with them during the Mick Taylor era). You get a good look at his technique here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FhCilozomo&feature=related Fingers...

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure McVie doesn't use a pick. That sound doesn't have the kind of attack you'd get from using a pick.

Your budget should include a set-up by a professional luthier, whatever you end up getting. At less than $100, it's the best money you'll spend.
