If you're okay, then all is well. I find the most consistent look of the insert banks on the tracks I work on is one EQ and one compressor, because I'm always struggling to carve and shape and puzzle-piece-fit everything together into a big ol' happy Mother Hubbard's shoe. Seems like-- to do a littl...

... cause i EQ just about every track... Of course you do, everyone does, nearly always. It's like saying "I breathe just about every day." The premise of this thread is that there occasionally are pretty unusual cases where this isn't necessary, but the whole craft of mixing is controlling and sha...

Troy Night Out video from May

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e301/joelpatterson/TNO-512.jpg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_E3J4EaxqpI All the truly greatest ideas seem so obvious in retrospect: decree that the last Friday of the month will be a citywide block party; corral all the artists you can find, highbrow to low, and ...

The name do not ring any wind chimes. The scene evolves pretty quickly around there-- that's one thing I've noticed.

Sherwood Forest comes to mind?

the astonishing Pete LaBonne at Caffe Lena

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e301/joelpatterson/Pete.jpg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eAzdnpF67E Pete LaBonne is the one truly mythical figure of the Capital District music scene. He makes everyone else look mundane and predictable by comparison. His edgy, wildman act prances along several ...

Geez, I wish I did... it was a whole mass jumble on stage, it could have been anything... up close the guitar is beaten, finish worn off and everything... which makes me think here's a guy who is not obsessed with appearances or trivia, he gets the sound he wants and that's it.

WELL RIGHT THE FUCK ON! I do certainly feel myself that Chandler is some kind of mystical shaman in his own humble way. The guy who does sound at Caffe Lena-- whose daily life is listening to bands and singers-- told me once that Chandler is the one guy who he will go out of his way to travel to and...
