Well, after having seen some TD material, I just don't feel so good pickin on the guy, I mean he's not doing anything bad except inflating the prices of some equipment he's using and buying the Waves platinum bundle..
Has anybody had a chance of listening to stuff he's mixed? I'd be curious, maybe his mixes kick ass (for sure they don't sound heavy on 500Hz..).
And, on top of that, I kind of like the iamawarrior thing, looks like very sincere to me..
C'mon, you can't possibly believe what's written on my avatar..

If you are going to consider yourself pro, at least spellcheck.

Tad is a legend in his own time....

Check out the links page. I think my favorite artist ever would have to be:

"ANGRY LITTLE FREAK - Bible Based Christian Shock-Metal" :P

man, reading the copy on his site was making my eyes cross. i mean, i can barely tell a noun from a verb, but i can't imagine being able to mangle the english language the way that guy does.

I feeling kind of bad about this now, I mean if he read this, or any other Tad based thread he would probably off himself. Then again, he kind of seems like the type to be absolutely unaffected by the opinions of others.

So Tad, don?t jump your brave as hell for even attempting a commercial recording studio.

tad doesn't seem too short on self-belief, so i doubt he'd be too concerned with the opinions of us snarky fuckers here. and hey, we're all sitting around talking about HIS studio, no one on any other messageboards are talking about any of OUR studios...

As I was reading this I thought to myself, "Am I on GearSluts' website?"

Seriously, it's a website - most people's websites aren't great. But let's move on and stop picking on the guy... At least he's recording. Isn't that the tape op way?

Your right to a point, this type of post is a little more GS than TapeOp but as well as supporting anyone?s dream of recording, TapeOp also (in my mind) frowns upon mis-information, and blanket terms like 'Industry Standard'.

These were the main reasons for the initial bashing of this gentleman, even before any of us even saw his website. It was those painfully inaccurate ?how to? videos, not his valiant effort at making good recordings.

Alright now I'm a done....seriously....still cracks me up though. :wink:

I enjoyed this bit:
No noise or outboard equipment. The software we chose has an analog warmth unlike Pro Tools, which has a slight dark, digital sound. We don't have to spend $5000 on compression to warm up our software.
