Details aside, I was inspired by the movie. I came to my band after watching and demanded we quit recording tracks separately, at home in front of our own computers, both engineer and performer.

Re: Psychoacoustics...?

So... can anyone point me in the direction of a good eq plug that has an analog style UI? Oh also, has anyone else done this: I was eq'ing a track, sweeping frequencies, applied a small cut and felt satisfied. Realized I was on a muted track. WTF. Hi Michael, As to really good EQs that do not have ...

Psychoacoustics...?

Well this was kinda embarrassing but I realized how much I depend on looking at the stupid computer screen while applying filters. Turning the graphics off of eqs and compression yields completely different results. I am now going back on this project (10 songs) and wiping everything clean because I...

Ya this can be pretty fun. My friends daughter and I looked all over my garage once for things that make cool percussion noises. Ended up with a duct taped plastic container full of bb's, a large plastic jar with a brush to slap it, some threaded metal thing that you could rake a drumstick accross. ...

Thanks guys. I used a ribbon first n didn't like it. The Audix d6 was cool but I think adding another mic around the bridge is a good idea... It's folky stuff so it would be cool to get a sound kind of like an upright.

The acids and chemicals left in the smoke, get deposited onto everything the smoke can get into, which means everything in the studio. These chemicals and acids will slowly eat away at everything they touch, especially if it is heated up, or is conducting electricity, as that will slowly keep activ...
