  1. Well, then with all that stuff, it'd be more likely to be worth it.
  2. OH MY GOD. Look at that cool scooter at 3:42. I know! The one with the alien-looking front fairing? I'd love to see the rest of that.
  3. Oooooooh silver flake double bound tele! That's the same thing I said when I saw that pic.
  4. This is the best economic climate to get a divorce in the last 50 something years!!! If you have the notion that the time is right to pull the plug... sooner is better than later!! Peace. I'm hoping you're right on this.
  5. I did something similar, with some scraps left over from working on a friends' basement remodel. It wasn't random, but I didn't use a formula, either. Sounds great.
  6. Absolutely. But, on the other hand, there are actually types of music I listen to now because of the recording quality that I wouldn't have previously listened to. Bingo. And you know what? I don't let my knowledge get in the way of the listening. It actually makes it much more enjoyable for me.
  7. If it works, you could, with great accuracy to your clients, tell them that "that track was on fire!"
  8. Naw. Not really obsessed with death or hate, so I'm not inclined to dwell on them to the point of seeing it in everything. What I'm still trying to process is the certainty of record sales from 'proper' mastering. In 6 months, no less.
  9. Originally posted by UstadKhanAli I don't remember that being super guitar-heavy. Interesting. I recall it being really bombastic, as if the whole thing was recorded in a coliseum, but I also thought it was relatively well-balanced and had a lot of synths. Bear in mind that I haven't exactly listened to this recently... Well, neither have I. I just remember listening to the record, and realizing that, after a short while, I was fatigued. I noticed that the guitar was the most oppressive instrument in the mix. I then tried to run it through a graphic eq, and had no luck in removing the ear-pressing presence of the guitar. Then, when I saw the credits, that his tech had recorded and mixed the album, it all made sense, as Kevin was likely suffering from a handicap in that part of the spectrum, thereby pushing the mix to accomodate something that wasn't missing in the first place. Which is all too bad, as I thought "Dixie Highway" kicked some serious ass.
  10. The concert DVD of Sting's "Brand New Day" tour has some atrocious audio...comp/limiters pumping too much in all the wrong places, instruments disappearing, soundfield imaging moving around.
  11. Off the top of my head, the first thing that comes to mind is Journey's "Captured" album. Good GOD, is that thing ear-bending. I noted that it was really guitar-heavy, the kind where no amount of EQ could get rid of the problem...then I later discovered that Neal Schon's guitar tech basically had oversight of the whole thing.
  12. While I don't normally put "voice training" and "Simon LeBon" in the same sentence, I'd be willing to wager there's a good bit of simply having developed into the job, for him. After all, he joined the band by answering an ad in the paper that advertised needing a "frontman for a poser band" where vocal skills weren't the highest priority. I pretty much dig them, as well, although it took me a while.
