You must feel so exposed, given how unusual a name John Davis is. :D

Mine is an anagram of my name... that should count, right?

Bandcamp and Tunecore are non-exclusive so you can sell anywhere else you want. Check out the Amazon Advantage program too. It's their small seller consignment program. That way your physical CD is available through Amazon, which often the first place people look.

They both have their uses. If you want your music to sound high tech and modern, and you want every instrument to be discernible with as much clarity and detail as possible, digital (ITB) is the way to go. It's also very easy to edit with and tweak a million different aspects of the sound. Plugins ...

Cubase has a free transport program for iPhone/iPod Touch. Haven't used it yet, since I don't have an iPhone yet, but it looks nice.

I always try to get up and walk around while doing takes or listening back to a mix, unless I'm doing something so critical that it would be detrimental to get out of the monitors' sweet spot.

Houston recording studios

Anyone have a good suggestion for a small studio in the Houston area? I have a client out there who wants to put together an EP and I'm trying to find some places in Houston that might work. Initial tracking will just be guitar, drums and scratch vocals, so it doesn't have to be a huge room or anyth...

i guess the short answer is that they give as much information as their target market requires. lower end condensor mics only have to say condensor because the consumer typically purchasing them only knows the guy at Guitar Center said you have to use a condenser mic for vocals. They don't know anyt...
