Re: MP3 & the TapeOp mindset

I know a lot of folks that own and run "indie" record lables. Not one has ever expressed a problem with people trading MP3s. I have been ripping MP3s into my iBook for personal use. I have also bought songs on iTunes. I also went searching on Limewire for rare stuff I can't even find in record store...

Re: Mac OS X recordists speak up!

I entered into Pro Tools land recently so I went right into OSX and PT6. We've had a lot of problems with the I/O settings, specifically getting the S/PDIF and ADAT stuff to work. Hint: Set the hardware how you want and quit and restart PT6. It pissed me off that I had less trouble with I/O running ...

Re: Hail to the thief

As far as an extensive internet search could tell, the new Radiohead was mastered at Abbey Road, a place usually known for impeccable mastering work. IMO the new album is pretty darn good, and I'm always excited to hear a new Radiohead/Godrich production. The new Grandaddy is darn good too. As is th...

Re: TapeOp Con - Thank you!!!!

Thanks to everyone for coming, participating, and having fun. The energy was so positive and exciting I think we all ran on adrenalin for a few days. In answer to a few "complaints/ideas" above, we didn't schedule a lunch break as there was so much to try and squeeze in. I'm not sure how it worked a...

Thanks to everyone who came to Portland for TapeOpCon2003! we had a blast and I'm still catching up on my sleep. New Orleans will be bigger and better - we're tossing around all sorts of new ideas to try down there. Plus you can drink in the street...

Re: LD Tube mic w/out exagerrated high end?

The Soundelux E47 is considerably darker sounding than the Elux 251, I own and frequently A/B them on singers. I have a Brauner Valvet Voice and it's sorta bright but in a very nice way, clears up soggy singers. The Manley Cardiod reference is bright and scooped in the mids but perfect for a singer ...

Yeah, sorry about the misunderstanding about the Jackpot! pre-party thing. It's meant to be a get together for Tape Op writers, panelists and volunteers. There's not enough room for 500 guests!!!! Go see Junior Private Detective if you can. They're great, we'll be finishing their mixes Weds night at...

Re: Hamptone

Scott Hampton is a man of very fine moral fibre. The fact that he let Tape Op give away his mic pre circuit and knowledge, and then posted numerous updates on his site, and put the kit into limited production for little or no profit should clue you in. I have the Silverbox 4, and it is one of the fi...

Re: Pleasure Forever - Alter

That record was a blast to make. I didn't get to see them play live until after recording the album, and they rocked. There's a comp track we did too coming out on some "buddyhead" thing through Nettwerk, whatever buddyhead is. On the album we did a lot of changing drum mics around from song to song...
