Eric Kilburn, Wellspring Sound

Rank: sometimes, especially after a 16 hour high-stress remote

Specialty: Record about 15-20 dates a year on a RADAR 24/Nyquist system; usually mix at my own place ( www.wellspringsound.com) or export to PT/DP/etc. for other studios. Just went 48-track.

Thought for today: live recording is usually more fun than studio work, because everyone is closer to the edge...

Bless your heart... Though I've only been around Junior only a few times (backstage at the Opry or the Ryman Auditorium), I still offer my sympathy. Got any good stories?

Well, finally signed up... (How could I resist another forum?)

Anyways:

Name: Benjamin Maas

Company: Fifth Circle Audio (in Los Angeles, CA)

Specialty: Classical and Jazz work, especially location.

I do a lot of direct to stereo (often while mixing FOH). Sometimes, I'll go to a few tracks and rebalance at home on my Mixing/Mastering rig. I also do studio work- usually jazz sessions or film orchestras. Most of my classical session work is done on location.

If you'd like more info about me and some sound samples, check out my website at http://www.fifthcircle.com

Junior told the band that they blues like white boys. Victor Wooten was standing right there. It was true though. Those guys groove like a quantized click track...no swing. Junior needs that, becuase he can't keep tempo himself.

The Ryman has gone to hell. They butchered the room. It is bigger back stage, and that is nice and all, but the FOH just blows. I don't understand JBL's thinking behind so many sources in a live room like that, but oh well. They didn't ask me.

Well, time has gone by, and I went to see a Junior show here in Tulsa at the Cains Ballroom. That room is just as bad, if not worse. He had Tanya Rae with him, as he has fired every good guitar player. Now they travel with just Junior, Pete the drummer, and Jon the bass player. Tanya just played because she was here. They live here in Tulsa.

Oh, did I mention that JR uses no monitors now? He plays with no wedges, has his two Fender Twins on 10, the drummer playing soft, and the bass is virtually non-existant on stage. He had Tanya playing so low that she had to turn into her amp to hear. What a cluster!

I must say that I miss Junior's record label. If they were still around, I would be out on the road. But now, I am stuck here at the house, having to do all the crap that I have put off for the past two years. I have to paint the whole freakin house soon. If I were on the road, I would have paid someone.

Junior is an "artist" and I use that term liberally. Had he not indulged in being such a hard headed person to deal with, he might have had a chance at being a bigger product. He burned a bunch of stairs to the stage with a few BIG people. The stages that he did share, he showed them up on a few shows, the press even noticed, so we didn't tour with those people again. His life is a true rags to riches story. He has picked up alot of nutty theories and theology alon the way. Deep down inside he is a really good guy, and he really does care about people. He just thinks that to be a talent, it is expected to play the "ass" at the same volume of your amplifiers.

Yeah, I heard about that. And Tom ended up playing? Go figure - I love Tom to death and all, but as a drummer? Vic wasn't playing too, was he?

I dunno about from FOH, but I saw the Down From the Mountain show from the front row, and it rocked (acoustically, of course), and I think the other show I went to there was Lyle Lovett's large band a few years back. Which was loud, but great. The bight thing about the Ryman is that you CAN'T play loud on that stage - it just doesn't work. Artists who don't know that, or don't believe it will get in trouble. Oh, that Tammy Wynette play sounded awful, but I think that was the director's fault.

Now that I think about it, I'm booked to play there again in June for the IFCO show - a gig I've done for the last 5 or 6 years - and keeping the volume down is a little rough - it's usually a 9 or 10 piece band...

RANK:
Head Gonzo. Owner of nameless studio at home and remote. Guitarist, engineer, bandleader, guitar teacher, producer, writer, pontificator, father, husband, homeowner, car owner, pet owner (provider), microphone owner . . .

SPECIALTIES:
Mainly I'm a guitarist. Jazz. A lot of jazz ensembles and female jazz vocalists. I've done many independent records. Owned a jazz label with international distribution. I'm a composer who still gets BMI checks. Lately I'm doing a lot of engineering. Just did two singers who got the first and second place in THE national jazz award competition (Downbeat) as a result of our recording. But it was all ME!!

I record bands at The Hangar a beautifully tricked out studio here in town. Been there for several years. Mix at home mainly now and for smaller ensembles and tracking. I have the mics and pres but not the space. So I've recently put my studio on the remote vibe: 20 decent to very good mics, 13x Millennia racked with Metric Halo 2882+dsp and ULN-2 boxes/Motu 2408 for adat optical I/O, Powerbook for 18 tracks. So far it's just been recording my jazz group - piano, guitar, upright bass, drums and three horns - sometimes a singer. Just recorded a live show of my group and me playing with a well known jazz pianist two nights ago and it was the bomb! Now I'm ready to make money with it. Can any one tell me how to do that? The hardest thing is recording and PLAYING the same time. It's gotta be downhill from there! I always have one guy who helps. But still . . . . . . . ..

24 track 24bit remote recording on a small scale.

Mostly small venue clubs. I do not do curbside recording, instead I have a compact rig that I bring into the club. I consider it to be Guerilla Recording

The biggest problem is that the bands that most need my services cannot afford to pay for them.

Once a year I do the live mixing (FOH & broadcast) and 24 track recording for the three day HR DOT COM Jamfest in Adnover CT.

count me in

Hey, I'm a live sound and studio engineer from Pittsburgh living in Nashville. I've been interested in live recording since one of my mentors Dwayne Dolphin chewed my head off. Long story short he taught me my job is to capture the magic not create it. That cut my lab rat phase short and changed my whole way of thinking about recording. Shortly after I started doing alot of live sound gigs. So then I guess it just seemed the natural progression.

I'm open to the experience!

Feel free to contact me

Seeing that I've been lurking for about a year, I figure its about time to add my name to the list.

Name: Wayne Hawthorne
Company: Click Track Audio, Ottawa Ontario. (.The Click Track Audio Website )
Rank: Owner/Operator
Specialty: Primarily Jazz & Blues, but have recorded everything from choirs to animal noises...(make sure you don't pick the wrong end of the animal you're recording...kinda ****ty for the gear).
Background: Live house tech for multilple years as well as electrical engineer. Now combining the two.
Gear/Setup: 24-track recording rig consisting of DA-78s or HD-24s, Masterlink, 24-channel isolated splits, DM-24 console, yada yada. Currently performing "guerilla" recording (i.e. in house), but designing and getting funding for full 48-track capable remote truck to service Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto. The plan is to pick up the table scraps that LiveWire doesn't want .
Thought for the day: When a rigger is working above you, run on the "****" (ROTF)...don't wait for him to say "HEADS!!!". If you don't know what I mean, work a few large gigs where they have the "novice" riggers in the air....

Name: Andrew Hernandez

Rank: Don't make me laugh!

Specialty: I assist live recordings for a College radio station. We set up bands in the radio station, just like a live show, and mix it live to our FM radio station and the web.

Background: I'm insanely new to this game. Was given my first guitar in 1999 at the age of 15. I'm now 20, and have done a handful of multitrack live recordings at tiny club shows. Also done a couple full lengths, and a handful of EP's for other local bands in my area. What's really been cool though is my work at the radio station. I've gotten the chance to man the board doing the live on-air mix of a bunch of bands for a show called Local Live.

I'm not even sure if this was worth posting, but at least you all know someone is learning from your conversations!

Hello Everyone,

just wanted to check in and give an update of the gig I'm working right now.
I'm still feeding myself and staying busy, mostly FOH work, but I do have one great project going on right now and just had to share it with you guys.

I've been working at a church in Jacksonville, FL mixing their Saturday night service for almost a year. It's contep christian music so its pretty rockin'.
I mix on a soundcraft series 5 with EAW mains and subs, full band with horns, strings and anything else you can think of (yes, even a tuba!!!).

Anyway, we are doing our second Live worship album. We are working with David Habegger of Watermark Communications. He pulled his trailer in almost two weeks ago and we are almost finished with over-dubs, then to mxing.
David has worked with tons of big acts, Britney Spears, John Tesh (Red Rock), Charlie Daniels and LeAnn Rimes just to name a few.

his web site is www.watermarkinc.net

He has tons of great mics 414's, TLM 103's and 105's, all kinds of shotgun mics, Audix drum mics and all the KSM's you could want. He also has a great console, an Amek Rembrant with some extra API and Midas pre's. My favorite piece of gear has to be the remote controlled camera, good for keeping an eye on folks out of reach.

it's been a great time of learning for me, learning how to work without sleep mostly. I can't wait to hear the final mix, I'll feel like a proud papa when its all done I'm sure.

On a side note, I saw great show in surround last night and ran into an old friend (loosly speaking, we've only met twice) Brad Madix, who last tim I saw him was mixing Rush in Atlanta, this time it was Queensrych. it was a great show and it was nice to see him again, he always does great work, say hello next time he's behind the console at your favorite show.

I hope everyone is doing well and learning something, I know I am almost every second. Take care
