Re: Sounds of the 90s

The 90s were high school and university for me, so lots of recording with not much equiptment. The bands and albums I remember are the likes of Eric's Trip, the flaming lips, modest mouse, but also the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, and Nirvana. So the production I realte with is t...

Re: Flaming Lips Photo Book

Ever couple of months or so, I put on the Soft Bullitin, and I end up just stopping whatever I was doing, and listen. I think it is the best album of the 90's and the best live show I have ever attended. Certainly a little different playing with the tape and video, but the town was covered in confet...

Re: what's with all the haters lately?

actually pretty much all the music anyone here listens to or records sucks....walter sear agrees. "MODULATE BITCHES!" I read that article. He's also got some good articles on his website. That was a fantastic interview. The last paragraph, about mediocrety, and how if you don't love what you do, an...

Re: Phono preamp

Good preamps seem to really improve separation in particular. Do you really need strong separation for the samples you are using? I have used mic preamps for phono preamps, and thet sounded ok. I don't know the impedences offhand, but as long as those match, phono is just two dynamic mics without th...

Re: need help with noise from guitar amp trying to record

My brother had a Bandit 112 that was noisy. there was a loose cap inside it, you might want to check for one of those BUT NOTE that caps hold charges, so short out both sides before checking them, or just don't touch them with anything conductive. If i remember, the cap was blue and about thumb size...

Re: Recording advice

Even more great info, Thanks Jeremy;

What I am gathering is that stereo speakers, headphones, and mono listening are all affected by mic arrangment. Also, tone and character are affected by mic type and placement. so with experience, we learn how to optomize for each situation.

Thanks again.

Re: Recording advice

Thank you for the question and the response. I was put in to a similar situation with a Digi001, but I had preamps, just not enough cables for more than 4 mics. Anyhow, I went with a Spaced LDC pair on the choir, and 2 Small diaphram condensors on the solo piano. It turned out ok, I wish I could hav...

Re: Pedal set up

The old digitech and zoom units i used to have went:

Compression
Distortion
Modulation(chorus, Wah)
Delay/reverb

(then anything about enhancing here)

I think this order makes sense. And then I would try to put the tuner on a send or dry out somewhere early on the chain.

Re: Hey The South

As a southern Canadian, I can sympathize with the southern States. One question though, is the stars and stripes synonomus with the Union. I mean it was the Confederate States *of America*. I see the stars and bars as far north as Pittsburg, I don't think they are un-American, but I didn't study ame...

Re: what style are you makin

I have experiment i try with recording that could be a little musical. lately, my projects are: Convergence - basically I arrange lines on midi with a pitch bender that are based on mathematic (not always serial) chords, then play the parts either on a violin or an ebowed guitar using the tuning peg...
