A lot of really great stuff. Keep it coming.

I like the pics of you in the studio with Todd, Tyler--but Ron Jeremy?!?!
Of course my fave is that Fairchild--so slutty. What studio is that?
lol thanks man. The drums are real, at some point I decided that it would be more beneficial to learn how to play them then program them, plus its way more fun.

Thats the fairchild from studio A at capitol, though i cant say ive ever used it. My "studio" is a lot closer to the dirt floor basement in my house lol

On Drifters Demo, I think what any A&R guy is going to notice is the voice.

Nicely done!

You have not properly paid your musician's dues until you've hauled
a Hammond B-3 up a flight of stairs!

Icy outdoor stairs, especially. And at 2 or 3 in the morning, maybe having downed a few, down those same stairs is even more fun.

Extra credit for doing it with just yourself and the keys player.

Never did forgive him for that.

Read the lyrics earlier elsewhere... this nicely captures the usual charms of your characteristic approach nicely. Did I say nicely twice? (Make that three times, now. )

One of my friends produced this with local talent.

I asked him if he had recorded anything yet with his
newly acquired and resurrected '64 Ampeg Echo Twin ET-2B





It's not a solo project, so to speak but a solo production effort
in his home studio.

Most of the 21 tracks I wrote, performed, produced, programmed, engineered, mixed, and pseudo-mastered. Buddha also features numerous amazing artists, some guest producer/composers, and one killer tracking engineer (for some of the ethnic stuff).

Cheers, quacitos locos!

It's nice to hear your stuff Skye. I was musically asleep for several years while working on other aspects of multimedia. Then I landed a DJ gig that woke me up in a hurry. In short order I discovered Seb Taylor (Kaya Project) and OM Records, which really opened my ears to music meant for ITB production, hence my regular diatribes here about some styles being more suited than others to the computer.

As you've suggested, hybrid production is fantastic if you can have access to both technology and players. I think you've done this really well - excellent composition and production (currently listening to Endless Night).

What was your chain for the guitar Unclenny? I dig the warm, intimate tone and also the image - really focused on my setup and collapses well to mono.

This thread should be favorited (or whatever that's called). It's nice to take a pause from our methodology debates and actually hear so many fine examples of the solo-production approach.

Happy New Year indeed.

Just listened to yours actually, nice Dean, and there is a massive difference between this and the last track of yours I heard, it's sounding leaps ahead.
I like your voice, you can hear it's not as confident as it could be but it sounds good, like a cross between neil young and jeff mangum.
If you put som real balls behind it then it would sound fantastic.
I was missing some kind of theme though, not enough to latch on to, no hook, basically.
Not that it has to have one, but I was expecting one

Come to think of it--my buddy's was a C3--not a B3. Just worse.
Murder up and down the basement steps. And only two people could carry it on a stairway. Yikes.

I think that eliminating the critical component makes it far safer to post. Sometimes it's nice to hear a more gentle response than YA KNOW I THINK YOU NEED TO CUT 3 DB AT 50HZ FROM THAT BASS ITS WAY TOO MUDDY YOUR MIX SUX0RZ AND WHERE THE HELL DID YOU GET THAT PAPER BAG SNARE SOUND?

Gadzooks... all kinds of fun stuff on here!

So, I'll offer up another one. This one is nearly a decade old. It resulted from plugging in my Danelectro Baritone, and noticing that I was already running a delay on that channel of the board. I started playing to the effect and within a couple of hours had written the song.

Recorded to ADAT via a Lexicon MPX 100. Danelectro is going into a '69 Super Reverb... mic'ed with an SM 57, I'm sure. Vocals are probably into a Rode NT-1 and through an Alesis Nonoverb via the rotary speaker effect. All of this was printed wet. Heck... I think I mixed this one down to a cassette and then bounced it back to the computer.

Here's a tune I wrote, recorded, sang, and played all the instruments on a few years ago...

I only have a stereo soundcard so I had to "mix" the drums as I recorded them. I'm using 4 mics i think..
