What's the mixer? Are you plugging into an unbalanced input on the mixer? The 001 are balanced, correct? Are you using TS or TRS cables? I'm thinking it could be a balanced/unbalanced issue, but if the mixer inputs are balanced as well, then it's probably something else... You've tried flipping the ...

If there is a chance for you to attend school for free and avoid having your parents going into dept, then I think you have to seriousely consider it. Universities and colleges are so friggin expensive these days. Also, more important then which school you pick is what you put into it while your th...

Oh, never mind, then. :)

I'm just hoping that Craig is really able to get a mastering potluck studio together next year. That will be awesome...

I finished up the editing and mixing on this live reggae disc I've been working on for far too long. Oh, and packed for my vacation that starts tomorrow.

Its funny cause I know most of the people who worked on that new modest mouse album and I think the main problem with it is that too many people worked on it for way way too long. I heard the track count on some songs was over 100 and it took a total of around 6 months to record at two different st...

Check it out, the mono mix of Piper is coming back to CD: http://sev.prnewswire.com/entertainment/20070622/LAF04722062007-1.html I highly recommend this to anyone who has only heard the stereo mix. I'm not sure one wants to bother with the 3-disc version for extra money unless they're a Floyd freak ...

I mean, what happens when the majors go away completely? No...I mean what REALLY happens...not some smart ass punk rock answer. Really, what's going to happen and more importantly, how the hell all of us capitalize on it. How do I go about buying the rights to put out an artist's back-catalog from ...

There's always the vinyl, if you have a turntable. That's what I had to do for the new Modest Mouse because the CD sounds awful. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that one because it looks like it's less crushed than the last one, but it sounds worse, and it was done by the same guy. The viny...

1) Supply a hard drive in an external enclosure that will hold the whole multi-track project once it is completed. DVDRs are so 2005. DVDRs last longer in storage than hard drives. If hard drives don't get used, they die. Plus DVDRs are cheaper and take up less space. If it was my recording, that's...

Ugh, I know the sound of that Chili Peppers record. If the new White Stripes underwent the same loudness butchering (not gonna dignify it by calling it "mastering") then I'm dreading hearing it... which is too bad, cuz thus far I've been looking forward to hearing it. There's always the vinyl, if y...

Re: Stadiums

Sheds are really the worst. Outside sound and the shows are geared towards lot of people socializing on the grass a really long ways away from the stage. I've seen very few shed shows that were worth anything to me. At least with a baseball stadium, the seats are all oriented towards the common act...
