Re: Yuck

I vote for the Sex Pistols' "Never Mind the Bullocks ..." I had that album hyped up to me for years when I was young ... then I couldn't even listen to it. I was recently watching one those "Classic Albums" making-of documentaries on this record, and they revealed that Sid Vicious really couldn't p...

The 13th Floor Elevators box sounds better than anything but an original pressing, of which I can attest to, owning 'Easter Everywhere'. Even my cassette copy of my vinyl sounds better than all previous reissues. But, the box is gone. They are getting ready to roll out new CD's next year with both ...

There's a Deep Purple remix out there, but I haven't heard it, or anything about it. The new 13th Floor Elevators box presents some new mixes of some later material, and some better master dubs of other bits. Nothing like hearing a much better copy, after hundreds of listens. I have been soooo temp...

I don't have a lot of suggestions, but could add to a couple of previous comments. I did flash back to a quote I heard awhile back in which someone said "find the worst sounding thing in the mix and CRANK it up!" This really can work (sometimes), and at the very least can recalibrate and refresh you...

There was a thread over on GS in which the MGMT recording was discussed. In an interview with MGMT, I know they talked about how he ran the whole thing through "crappy '90s compressors". It also came to light that Dave Fridmann was intentionally distorting his plug-ins and pushing them into the red ...

FS: MBT 6RU Rack Case + Chad Smith Signature Pearl snare

I have a couple items I'm looking to sell here. One is a nice molded, hard shell rackmount case from MBT. This is a 6RU sized case and it happens to be brand new...and I do mean BRAND new and unused - haven't even opened the thing. It's even still got the tag on it. I purchased this and didn't end u...

I've got a Masterlink that I mix down to from my board, but I do also have a CD recorder. I actually kind of love having it around. The unit I have is a Sony CDR-W33 which I picked up sort randomly, and as it turns out this is a highly regarded CD recorder...even at it's somewhat "vintage" (ca. 2000...

I used to do the old school thing of cutting out the middle and mounting the new head on top of the old head, so the middle part rings free, but the outer part of the head is damped by the contact with teh old head. This only works with lugs that are pretty long. This is actually a pretty good idea...
