I really don't have a problem with th ho's it's these new slutz he's hanging around with that is keeping me awake at night.

He's really a good boy he just keeps getting mixed up with the wrong crowd.

I mean making pop records?... for the radio? It's embarassing. Me and his father just tell our friends that he in the international slave trade business and that the studio is just a front. Either that or we tell them he does gay porn. Last year we found out that Mrs. Tibbs son was a "talent scout" for a major record label instead of, as she told us, a drug dealer. Needless to say Mrs. Tibbs is no longer in the bridge club.

Slipperman:

You are so NICE over here at GS!! mezed

MUST be those old "Be a good guest" manners kicking in.... heh

If you want to back out of this contest, let me know. You just might, after I send you a CD, or email you an MP3 of two songs. One, done 48-track, Analogue, Neve, Studer A-800, the works, but NOT engineered or mixed by me.

The other, using a 1/2 eight track Otari, a Soundcraft 4 buss PA board, a few broken (intermittantly) dbx 166 compressors, a graphic EQ, made by who knows WHAT Japanese Hi-fi company, an Alesis Micro-Verb (also intermittantly broken), and a 57 for the vocals. I didn't track ANY of the HORRIBLY RECORDED tracks, but I DID attempt to mix them, on a pair of Tannoy 6.5 PBMs, I think that's what they are called, in a *control room*, built, literally, like a subway tunnel, in a loft in Hoboken, Noo Joisey.

And, I also "Mastered" it, a bit after the fact, mostly to improve the *Noise to Signal Ratio* that existed.

I won't tell you which tune is which on the CD, (although it's not THAT hard to figure out rollz ) BUT, you tell ME, if you can actually be positive of the fact, or can even discern that a U-47/1073/LA2-A/A-800, and whatever else, was the signal chain on the one vocal, while a 57/Soundcraft PA board/dbx 166 was used on the other, and which vocal "sound" you actually PREFER!! dfegadgrggt

Oh yea, the singer using the 47 is MUCH better than the one croaking out the vocal on the 57!! diddlydoo

PLUS, there can be NO mastering for our test, unless I do it, since I KNOW you pay Brad off, weekly, because he found out about that "thing" you did, and has the pictures to prove it!! heh

malice 18th March 2003 08:07 PM

bob, can you post the links to the songs ? that would be fun ...

btw, I did mix a record on a soundcraft 4 buss, I kinda liked the microverb, and I kinda like vox with a 57 ...

THEMIXFIX 19th March 2003 03:28 AM

I WOULD, but you're FRENCH!! heh abduction

I can email them to you, but I can't post them just yet, since I need to get permission from the companies, etc., which is a pain in the ass, and probably won't happen, anyway. dfegadgrggt

If you'd like, email me at [email protected], and I'll send you the clips as 320kbps MP3s, each small one edited to under 2 mins. so it won't take you forever to download. khrthjdrt

BUT, you'd better hurry!! mezed

I hear that "W" is cutting off ALL Internet Service with "YOU GUYS" in 24 hours!!
