Re: Nur Ein VII: Final Round

Eef, I step away from the boards for 24 hours and they light up like a Christmas tree! Congratulations Frankie! A well-deserved win. Thank you, everyone for a great ride, especially Niveous for putting all of this together. I don't know about y'all, but I'm exhausted and I didn't even write songs fo...

Re: Nur Ein VII: Final Round

Well, I'd like to see a Frankie Big Face / Ross Durand supergroup!

Infectious folk-pop with a gritty twang. Yeah... that would be awesome.

Re: What Monitors Should I Save Up For?

Noah, I think nothing short of a farm in Wiltshire is what you need to emulate. So, do I understand this right: one would/could use the Big Room to effectively perform in the round? Like, surrounding the mixing board? Those pictures are confusing; I swear some of them are not of the same space... R...

Re: Awesome Youtube videos

So, apparently Bieber is looking for a Girlfried to his "Boyfriend." I'm voting for her:



You should, too. Otherwise she might come knocking with blades and chloroform in the middle of the night.

Re: What Monitors Should I Save Up For?

I've found that walls full of books make for really good sound dampeners. I've heard that book shelves make excellent diffusers since the random depth of the books help to break up the sound waves. They seem too dense to offer any dampening. Ken I stand corrected. I have awesome walls full of sound...

Re: What Monitors Should I Save Up For?

Actually, I record in my library upstairs which was not renovated and hence is still carpeted. To boot, I've found that walls full of books make for really good sound dampeners. So, I've already invested about... well we have 2600+ books plus good shelves... I don't have $10,000 to drop on monitors....

Re: What Monitors Should I Save Up For?

*googles*

Dammit, why the hell are these things sold as a single speaker by default? It's rather deceptive.

Allow me to rephrase: I'd prefer $200 - 300 for a pair.

Have at!! Welcome to it. Sweet. Send the files along, then, if you would. I have no idea how to strip stuff out of an already-produced track...

What Monitors Should I Save Up For?

It seems like the best next step in building my home studio would be to get some monitors. I am therefore opening the floor to suggestions. I'd prefer to spend about $200. That can be stretched to $300 if I'm motivated to be frugal. This is entirely virgin territory for me; I'm not event sure what q...

Ouch! This happened to me the last time I submitted to Nur Ein. Two words: open tuning. :-)

Since there are at least a couple of gems in this fight, I may get around to reviewing. In the meantime, IN RE: Bluebeard: YLCWRyhdCQw French Feminist takes on traditional tales FTW. And if that tickles your fancy, you'll love Sleeping Beauty : eFT6C61OmME So not your mother's fairy tale!

Just an FYI, for those looking for a place is that isn't more than $100 a night, http://www.airbnb.com is fantastic. I just booked a room for $83 a night that's maybe 10 blocks from the Rogue and Peasant. Sweet!
