Recording today for the sound 30 years ago?

Hi Ken,

I would guess you are often asked to re-create the classic sounds you achieved on the Beatles/Bowie/ (insert very long list here)...recordings, as in, an artist hires you because they love the sound you got on Ziggy.

Have you recently tried to re-create any of those sounds and vibe using today's gear? Any recordings you would like to point me to?

Thanks, I am a big fan, much appreciated.

Hi David, Interestingly I am often asked how I got certain sounds but rarely asked to actually recreate them. Really the only time in the last few years was for a film project that had to sound like the Bowie period and unfortunately after starting the initial recording the star pulled out and the producers lost funding. I'm hopeful that it will eventually get finished because the soundtrack was sounding great.

As far as recreating some of those sounds with today's gear. Highly unlikely. That's basically why I worked so hard on EpiK DrumS, because so many people seemed to like the sounds from back then but it's becoming close to impossible, or at least very costly, to get them these days.

Cheers
