Budd - Rapeman. Insanely good sound. + 1 for Budd. I am surprised no one has mentioned Zeppelin's "How the West Was Won". I swear, the live version of "Since I've Been Loving You" is effing unbelievable sonically and in execution. It always blows me away how controlled and well balanced the whole t...

The Jesus Lizard "Goat" Mic setup on Sims' Blog

Former the Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid/Rapeman bassist (and Teledubgnosis collaborator) David Wm. Sims has carved out a space for himself on the web: http://davidwmsims.wordpress.com/ It's mostly an outlet for his writing and current event commentary, but he's started posting artifacts from his musica...

Want to buy my brand new, unopened UAD-2 (Duo) Nevana 64?

So I ordered the UAD-2 Nevana 64 card 10 weeks ago, back when I was a little more flush. It finally arrived yesterday, and I am not sure that I can afford to keep it. It sucks, but I can always buy another when things pick up. I have to make a decision in the next few days, but I am leaning towards ...

hhmm, this isn't a very helpful post, is it? sorry. i think i need more coffee. Heheh... I'm due for a 2nd cup myself. Actually this is a good thread. I just needed to chat with some people about this topic, and I appreciate the responses. I am really stuck on the idea of slapping a handheld 2 trac...

Yeah, RWC, for what you are describing, I would not want to "always be recording" either. But I'm posing something a little different from your worst case scenario. As explained, I am a one man operation. And I am referring at the moment to 2 channel mix passes. But I'm also considering "riffing" se...

I totally agree. having things patched and ready to go is the way. I moved out my dying 32 channel board, got another 8 channel sound card, and leave everything connected and ready at all times. It seems that I lack a certain fearlessness that some people have when it comes to laying down audio. If ...

A handheld 2 track recorder capturing passes is a great idea. I had an M-Audio Microtrack II for a while, sold it when I was low on cash. Maybe I should get another. The M-Audio had SPDIF in, that's why I went for it. I could just slap that on a digi-out and forget about it.... Of course, the organi...

And I like Tatertots idea of recoding everything for six months.
If I did that and nothing good came out of it, I'd know it was time to try a new creative medium....

A question: What is the Alec Baldwin line in that movie? That is one heck of a movie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-AXTx4PcKI The whole clip is worth watching if you haven't seen it in a while. But the actual line comes in at 3:20. So funny, and so tragically accurate. I used to record constantl...

Thanks for the reply MoreSpaceEcho. For some perspective on my reason for posting this, I am mostly a one man operation. Writing original material, doing remixes for others, or adding overdubs to friends' tracks. But 99.9% of the time, it's just me, my machines, and whatever FX/Instruments/tracks I ...

Chris Stamey's "A.I.R.: Always In Record" Mantra

Of all the things I've read in Tape Op over the years, this one keeps creeping into my head as really great advice. From Chris' series on tips for fixing it before the mix: # 10. A.I.R: "Always In Record." Even if the wires aren't all plugged in, record those runthroughs - they are often golden. Rea...
