Columbus OH Sluts, declare yourselves!

Man, I really hope that there are a couple of guys out there from Columbus...

I'm just looking to say hi, network, chat, maybe go out for a beer or whatever. I'm running my studio out of a rented house in Gahanna.

I've been thinking of moving to a location that is better suited for recording (i.e. away from my bitchy house mates) for quite some time now...and I think that it would benefit me to know a few more Columbus audiophiles. Give me a shout guys!

This is a cool idea.

If everyone from Ohio posts up here, itll be easy for everyone else to update their ignore lists.

Welcome Jon! I run a small and really overcrowded project studio on the Hilltop in Columbus. Just ignore that guy from Denmark. My grandmother was born in Stockholm and played 7 instruments without that kind of attitude. Oh by the way her grandmother was Jenny Lind so there Denmark! Eddie.

Cool, I'm glad you all found this post! I put it up awhile ago.

We should all go out for beers...Gustav, you can come too, as I can see that you are uuuber coolstike. Really, I mean it. Nice glasses, BTW...takes me back to my emo days in high school.

Any of you guys play instruments? My studio isn't very big, but I've always wanted to have a jam session / mini party at the place...could be fun. Word?

Hello everyone,

I guess I am now an official slut as I just registered - long time reader, first time poster. This home town post caught my eye and lured me out of lurking ...

I live in Cbus when I am home ... and love it! I have been to every major city in the states and lived abroad for a while, and though that doesn't qualify me as a travel agent, I still think Cbus a great city. Modern, convenient, and just enough behind the fashion curve to keep it real. I am a midwestern guy and don't mind saying so ...

I travel about 6-8 months a year on tour as a FOH engineer. The rest of my time I spend in front of my Focal SM8s.

I got off tour last week. The band I work for finished the leg with a soldout "in the round" Madison Square Garden show that was recorded for DVD release.

I mix in the box, am fortunate to have friends that don't, and prefer Nuendo to Protools. In spite of that last comment, I do love the Venue console - won't leave home without it.

jpanda

i'm no great musician but like composing through keyboards. i'm in galloway, pretty decent collection of synths, mics, pres, compressors, eq's, and a shit load of computer hardware and software.

always looking for people to collaborate with, especially anything electronic influenced like rap, dance, trip hop, etc.

Hey any of you in Columbus know the band "Lollipop Factory?" Dave is an old friend of mine from So Cal. I think he still lives in Columbus...

Yeah I remember mixing them once about 10 or 15 odd years ago in a club where my buddy had an install and needed a babysitter - very Queen "night at the opera" era meets Jellyfish with a smidge of early beatles tossed in. Damn good vocal harmonies and tight band.

Tweed - that was his name right?

Lanky guy with red hair? I remember thinking that the band was awesome ... but they would never make any money. I thought they were a little too out there for contemporary tastes and in the wrong place at the wrong time for what they were doing. Great band though. Too bad there isn't more like them - then maybe contemporary taste would change eh?

I have been on the road or in my studio for 8 odd years ... so I don't have a clue whats going on in Cbus music wise. I remember the Columbus music scene as always being very cliqueish though ... and recall that the community isn't very supportive compared to other citys. But, in some ways it's a lot like a cross between Detroit and Nashville because the city breeds lot of world class musicians. Something is in the water in the midwest. Unfortuantely, they (the great musicains) all leave after a time if they're serious ... and understandably so.

One of the main reasons I like it here - it's not a music town but has some amazing players. I can actually work without distraction.

Yessir, thats him! I ran into them on myspace a few weeks ago, they have 2 songs on there. Sick talent they are, and good call on the Jellyfish thing. He actually tried out for them about 15 years ago, and drove back out here to Ca. for the audition.

They do go over alot of peoples heads, but the people that love them, LOVE THEM!!

I am not from Columbus, but I used to spend some serious time playing down there. Oldfields, The Newburg Tavern, Scarlett and Gray, The Newport... all those kinda places.

I am in Ashland, about an hour north of Cbus.

Panda makes time for GS (bass traps going well?)

Granville is cool place for a studio (I'd like to meet your friend there, Dave)

Hey Brian, yeah I want to come out sometime later in the month if thats okay and say hello - I only have 3 dates in march and then it's full tilt april through june. Austrlia is on the summer itenerary ... but I never believe anything until the plane ticket is my hand.

Unfortunately, I am recoverying from a surgery at the moment otherwise I would give you a jingle. I can't really talk at present time - the surgeon took a pound off my nose and breathing is a chore.

BTW, the problem with frequency summing I was having is no longer an issue as I moved my mix room to allow better dimensions. When we last talked about that room - I failed to mention that it was overcrowed with out board gear as well. Moving solved the problem I was having with 140 hz and allowed for a more comfy enviroment, not to mention diffusing some of the reflections as well. Thanks for the tip though. I am ordering the real traps next month after I get a residual.

i bought an RE-10 and a large locker from him off craigslist not too long ago. he just left town to, and i quote, "tour indefinitely." seems like a really great guy, although he wouldn't sell me his buddy's farfisa for cheap.

have you visited there before? not being snotty, just wondering, as there isn't a whole lot going on out there (hell, some people would tell you there's not even a lot going on in the city itself, let alone the sticks). PLUS we have way more UK girls in the city. i know this for a fact.

Columbus here as well. Great town...and agreeing on the Lancaster bit.......why Lancaster? You need to relearn how to say it when you do move........Lncster. Say it just like we do!


eta. Dave Tweed is the awesome. He once sat in with a band of mine with only a few hours notice and did 2 hours of Elvis songs with a full band. He's a badass

I have recently relocated to Granville, from the bay area. I played the gahana creekside blues and jazz festival a couple weeks ago. Hopefully we will meet up someday. I am learning how to record myself and enjoy learning more! I play every other saturday in Granville, and will be at these festivals in the columbus area- lancaster festival, and pinkerington jazz blues and rib fest this summer. Walter

I had no idea there were so many Columbus people on here!!! Im from Galloway, on what my family always called "the far westside." I live in Los Angeles now, and I'm working at a really nice studio but I'll be moving back to Columbus in December and I'm really looking forward to it. I used to play in Lieutenant Dan's New Legs before I moved out here so I know all of those places, Little Brothers, Frog Bear, Newport, The Continent, Comfest.

I'd be into seeing your studios sometime, but I'd be even more into having a beer. If anybodys ever in LA let me know and I'll show you around the studio.
