If two engineers were doing a project, one was given let's say Blackbird with acces to all the gear and the mics and Pro Tools HD cutting @ 192KHz / ans the other was given a Fostex Casette 4-track machine and one SM57 and a couple or Radio Shack mics, Who will make the better record????????????

The Future Sound Of Elvis...
What if Macs and PCs had been around in Elvis's day? Would 'Jailhouse Rock' have been a better record if it'd been done, say, in Logic? Imagine an interview with the engineer in one of today's hi-tech music magazines...
"Yeah, well Elvis came in and… Continue

maybe it's because my parents were workaholics, but i feel obligated to be working ALL THE TIME, or else i feel i'm being lazy. here i am week 5 or 6 (lost count) of just straight go-go-go and i've been asking to at least get Sundays off from my clients. just because one works out of the home doesn't mean i can "just do this one quick revision, tuning, overdub, make me an mp3, etc" at anyone's whim. of course, because it's a tough world out there for all of us, i oblige, cuz u never know when… Continue

What Is Wrong With The Music Business
Current mood: aggravated
The question asked was, did Bob Montgomery (Record Producer) ever make a bad album? My answer was "I don't think so", but why???? Please note that I've singled out Bob because I recently pulled out a copy of Vern Gosdin's "Chiesled In Stone" and it brought back thoughts of what a great record this is. Great Songs, Great Singing Great Production. Now don't get me wrong,… Continue

Class Action Suit Against Digidesign
Current mood: annoyed
What do you think. Let's sue them for putting the studio business, well out of business.
It was one thing for singers, songwriters and musicians to have a "four track" at home to put down ideas, but thanks to Digidesign these same folks think they can get the same quality recording in their basement or bedroom. I can't count the times I've put up tracks to mix and… Continue

I did a tracking session the other day (actually filling in for David Buchanon, who had a family emergency) for Producer Trey Bruce and Artist Chris Janson for Chrysalis Music over at Omnisound Studios. Great Songs, Great Band, Greg Morrow, Glenn Worf, Michael Spriggs, Tony Harrell and JT Corneflos, and to make it even cooler, we cut 2" 24 Track Analogue. Wow!!! The way music used to sound before all the digital and Pro Tools… Continue

For Goodness Sakes (In The Studio) 001
This is my studio blog 001. Things I hear / say and somebody should say in the studio.

I know this book has been out for a while but I am just now getting around to reading. I am about 10 pages in and already, it has affected me profoundly. I can't imagine what is in store for my crowded little mind as I trudge through it a few pages at a time. I'm not a slow reader, I just don't have a lot of leisure time. Now that I have this site online, I have even less.
Everybody keeps messaging me and commenting to each other about what a great idea. It's not some original idea… Continue

I've been hanging around on this board now for several days and I'm realizing that this board has been needed for a long time. Bret mentioned to me earlier that he thought a lot of what's happening here is that music biz folks are actually hanging. In 2007 we rarely hang anymore. We tend to pass around hard drives as we stay in our home studios for the most part. I'm enjoying "hangin'. I'm seeing guys that I've not seen in decades . . . guys with whom I used to work . . . and enjoyed doing so.… Continue

I am now almost three years past the age of 45. Approaching 50, but I still feel like I did when I got out of college, mentally anyway :) I've gone through a lot of transition in the last few years though. I've had to re-invent myself several times. I am thinking now that transition and change is as much a part of life as being born or dying. Is it bad to go through transition? I used to think so. There was a fine line between being open to new things and being irresponsible. But, now that I… Continue
