Nice. He's got the long white gloves on, too? Really an elegant picture we're painting for a class act like Phil.

White gloves, yes - I admit to having worn those before. But they were not long. The gown however, is another matter all together. It was long... oh waitaminute... :eek::mad:;):D

Gown too long? Sounds like you need a second engineer to help you carry the back of the gown.

 

Look, if this is really the case, the amp/mic hang-out's gonna be quite interesting!

Ken says--->This is kinda like the giant lobby with the chandelier and the two sweeping staircases, with Phil standing by the elegant crystal doors welcoming visitors in, huh?

 

stranger says----> Who's the guy swinging from the chandelier?

Probably Nursers. He's from Globe - Wrong Side, aka Oz, so he tends to be more comfortable hanging upside down. ;)

My son has a Fostex MR8-HD. He has recorded audio onto the hard drive, and we transferred the files (I believe thay are wave) to the computer. What software do you recommend to edit, mix & burn the cd's? Something similar to pro tools (I believe?) at a more affordable cost. Cost is an issue, at least initially, but we don't want to deal with junk. Also, is that all we need at this point? My computer will burn the cd. Do we need a hard mixer?

 

Thanks,

Randy K

Hey Phil, New to HC, I produce three to six records a year and I wanted to get some of your thoughts about the most effective way to do Pre Production... I keep feeling like I sit in the control room rehersing a lot of my clients, as much as I try to get clients to be prepared, few of them ever are. While my pocket book doesn't mind, I am just getting a little board and it makes it tough to really stay engauged in the project... any advice?

Howdy Phil,

 

Just a newbie musician here wondering if this is where its at ???:poke:

 

 

 

Something i'm stuck on at the mo is fine tuning your EQ's....

 

By 'EQ tuning', i mean that process when you tune the individual eq's of the instruments in your DAW, kinda like EQ mastering i guess, you know, how you sweep the frequencies till you find their mid-point then boost/cut accordingly.

 

Hmm, i'm not quite sure any of that made sense.

 

Do you know what i mean?

 

anyway, idea for discussion??? "EQ tuning in ten or less steps" :p

 

Mind ah'd want the easy version...:lol:

 

btw, how come you got your own icon. what did you have to do to get this> :phil:

 

 

cheers

I'm in the process of building an analog recording studio in Modesto, CA. I've been collecting vintage analog equipment for four years, however, I know you've gotta have some digital. Several local 'experts' have been pointing me in the direction of Apple Logic, still others insist I must use Pro Tools, any suggestions?

Phil,

Are you still available for recording in your Riverside studio?

If so, what's the best way to contact you?

Is there anyone out there who knows how to operate a Digidesign 003 Interface? I'm having a problem getting it to go in "record mode". it keeps saying that no tracks are "enabled" I guess my question is this, how do you enable the tracks? I'm using Pro Tools LE 8

I have the manual, but it's not very clear. The manufacturer (digidesign) only gives you "one month" of telephone support! After that, they want you to purchase "support" for $249! Unbelievable!

 

Help,

Clarino

It can be a bit confusing starting out with PT. Pardon if this is too rudimentary for you. It wasn't for me the first time in PT.

 

Create a track in PT

In that track assign an input (AnalogMic1)

Plug a mic into that input (Mic1)

Click the little "R" on the software track (channel strip) you created in PT

 

You should now see your meter jumping about if you clap your hands.

 

Click the record button on the transport window. That's the one with the play, stop, etc. icons. The record button is the one with the round dot. It should now be red. Click play and start screaming like a banshee!!!

Thanks for this, Phil! Btw, is your quote in reference to the Mel Brooks line from "Robin Hood: Men In Tights" ?

 

Actually, it is Mel Brooks... it's a recurring line that appears in more than one movie - I was thinking of History Of The World Pt.1 when I put it up. ;)
