Some Collected Wit and Wisdom

Sweepable mids are like sex. If you've never had them, you don't know what the big deal is, but once you've had them, you never want to do without!

It's when you're investing thousands of dollars in a final product that you want to make damnsure (you have to imagine the Young Frankenstein accent there, just another limit of HTML) that you get the best sound you can, and that's when mastering makes sense.

You can try recording certain things with the slightest touch of reverb, but be careful because if you put reverb all over the final mix it will sound terrible. And when you do mix down, using different types and amounts of reverb (including none!) for different tracks can make a big (good) difference. Just keep it light...about 30% less than your initial "wow, that sounds cool" setting is usually right on.

It helps to remember that the slang word for "loudspeaker" in England is "Tannoy".

If you really want to do "something else", I'd get Minidiscs because at least you can den dump dem digitally direct to de data drive (sorry, I got on a train to Brooklyn there... :-)

Prosumer usually means "better than what you can buy at Radio Shack but not as expensive as what the pros really use".

Q: What is the best way to mic up a gat to get a full sound like the foo fighters. My recorded gats always sounds weak.

A: Do you mean a git (guitar)? A gat is a gun. It takes quite a special mic with a high SPL rating to properly mic a gat, not to mention all the problem with holes in the studio. I suggest getting one of those sound effects CDs instead of using a gat in the studio...micing gits, though...that we can talk about all day!

When you hear good monitors, instruments may jump out at you without warning, you may hear subtle things you never heard before, or hair may suddenly grow in strange places on your body.
