  1. Looking for 2009 Alternative Mode TRAP KAT
  2. Peavey tube sweetener --or similar ........
  3. Our external effects will only go to 48 =---there we stay. We burn a 16 & 24 CD for the clients
  4. Crystal Studios -- "crystal clear" and also started in the 70's >>> up in Crystal Bay-Lake Tahoe
  5. I dissect/analyze every tune .....more from the earlier days of music. I will raise my voice, if I walk into a business, and there's a Beatle tune playing through the ceiling >> with only a snare & bass and a harmony coming through > because someone did not wire the balance correctly. Just irks me to leave Paul /George or lead vocal out of the mix.:poke:
  6. Guitar & Vocal tracked on a early Roland 1680 recording --- mastered on a VS 2480 with midi sequencing for bass /drums / etc. http://www.songramp.com/mod/mps/viewtrack.php?trackid=65987
  7. First :: we clamp a car "battery jumper cable" to the metal chassis of the amp to a solid ground Second :: We run a direct out of the cab Third :: A direct box is connected to a Y > at the guitar jack Fourth :: You can run the guitar chord once around the neck of the artist {a simple loop actually works in most cases } and you will notice a considerable drop in hum.
  8. Yikes >> give us a little more time --takes a long day ~~ to drive down from Big Sur:poke:
  9. http://www.ryandavidorr.com/music/997 A few new ones from our latest production .. I like Delight & Disappear
  10. Great converter -- we connect SPDIF I/O --The digital Rbus connects all of our effects , in the racks >> and the AES to our MasterLink via the DEQ 2496
  11. I use the Roland 2480 and a computer in my studio. To be honest the 2480 does the vast majority of the work and the clients are always happy with its results. That unit is highly under appreciated. So do you use Roland mmp-2's with it, if you do you can run them through optical inputs and get better track separation. I run a Manley DVC through a SEK' D 2496 converter
  12. Not sure if it is a weakness, per se >> since no client has asked for certain plugins or editing --but, we do not have a PC/Mac in the studio..Still strictly all Roland Daw
  13. Just how I have always done things --in the "matter of monies" Works for our clients.......
  14. Being a little too aggressive with the payment/time side of the studio. Probably too ruthless with the clock--and payments due at the end of each days tracking...Or maybe that how we stayed in business for 20+ years;)
  15. Pickup a used Behringer DEQ 2496 ..for 'bout a $100 ..and play around..fun, quick, pseudo mastering:thu: ~~just think dip *** not boost *** when you start grabbing EQ's
  16. Originally posted by sdsweet i love the drums in this mix. the snare cuts right though, and the kick has a nice thump. The guitars were a little overpowering, they seemed to consume everything. thanks for listening --I guess the tune is mainly two guitars and my piano & bass..so maybe a little too guitar heavy...the kick/snare are my Trap Kat pads into the Kurzweil--the cymbals are my fingers on the keyboard....
  17. Since we record cabs at such low volumes (quiet neighborhood ) we combine a room mike & a cab mike ---with the direct outs of the guitarist amp, and the accessories they bring to the studio. Most use pedal/boxes they prefer > Hughes/Kettner, Love, SansAmp ... We provide the TC G stuff in our racks. Very little thrashin/hard rock is ever been recorded here, though: Hey it all gets down to a MP3---my ears can't tell a ribbon mic on a vintage amp...from a 58 on a $50 Behringer amp. Now give me vinyl ~ recorded from a 2in,,from a classic studio. It's there~!~ 3 guitars here --all with very, very low volume cabs Blues Junior or a Crate SAVE YOUR LIFE
  18. Another from those 8trk cassette days --more pop-Nashville genre http://www.redshift.com/~cjogo/TUNES/RED%20CANYON/ONLY%20YOU%20KNOW%20WHAT%20I%20MEAN.mp3
  19. Originally posted by tamoore I take it the guitars are supposed to sound out of tune?? The performances sound good. The mix sounded pretty darn good too.. I like the song. Yeah guitars were purposely tuned this way. We didn't have the spare effects > back in the cassette days. He tried to achieve a chorusy-detune sound..playing a mandolin and 2 guitars ---tuned just enough apart.. thanks for listening~~ I think not >bad for a 58 into a early Tascam 8 channel board, for the pres >> to a Tascam 238 cassette/
  20. Originally posted by daklander I dug this out of the archives. It's an old Hoyt Axton tune. Lion in the Winter Recorded into stereo cassette deck. Mic on vocal and one on guitar and the guitar pickup was, if I remeber right, blended in too. The song was played to Ardour to get the wav file and I used Audacity to convert to mp3. No processing of any kind, other than the coversion. It's raw as performed. Nice rendetion ...I was a neighbor of Hoyt's in the mid 70's...we both were performing 'round Tahoe. Knew Bambi in the early days of Tahoe... Our guitar/banjo player joined Hoyt in late 70's
  21. HUSH --great mix!! Nice melody....drums sittin' just right >> on my little PC speakers.
  22. Traveling Man http://www.redshift.com/~cjogo/TUNES/travlin%20man.mp3 No "real" drums here. Drums were performed on the keyboard--two fingers ,, 10 tracks. All sequenced = nothing burned to the DAW. The trick for me is to play every drum fill~performance with layered tracks. So...each cymbal crash/ride/hat has maybe 2-3 tracks > each being a different sample and played on top of each other > at different intervals. That way, as one rolling cymbal attack maybe dropping its volume , the second track takes over the cresendo. My tom fills are are played on a seperate track & copied and then 2 different samples are blended. The completed performance is then sent out the 16 seperate outputs > from our Kurzweil samplers to the direct analogs of the VS2480..EQ/automixed/effected and mixed into the 24 tracks of the recorded band. Maybe totally different approach :: but this has been our method > since the first sequencer could sync to recorders. The three guitarist > were all direct. One take--just fun in the studio.
  23. GUNS & DRUMS a remix from years back-- going through this artists' archives ,,for the past month. Few others ...
