Welcome aboard!

Remember, when polishing a turd you must freeze-dry it first; to keep that new polished look you must consider refrigeration.

Remote Keyboards by Sam Holloway

Hello. My name is Sam Holloway. I play keyboards.

I have been making music for over 15 years as a

Name: Richard Crowley

Rank: Location recording since high school (1964)

Speciality: Classical & sacred choral, orchestra, vocal, instrumental

Location: Portland Oregon

Extra: Added audio for video production because of the deplorable state of audio for video. Now have 4-camera digital HD live-switch mobile unit for video, also.

Plans for my RIG: Buying demo unit JoeCo BBR1U next week. (Alesis HD24 died.)

Also: I am as much an audio/video hardware hacker as I am a producer. Pondering building 8 or 16 channels of mic preamp and surveying what circuits, transformers, etc are available out there. Looking specifically for recommendations for good mic preamp circuits and non-premium transformers. Cinemag? Edcor? other? Still trying to find my way around Gearslutz to see where the mic preamp DIY discussions are?

Rank: just a guy

Specialty: jack of all master of none

History: I started out in the studio with Neve, API, Studer, 3M (2 inch 16 track now that's fat), MCI, etc., and a few hundred bucks could get you an 1176. Oh yeah, the faders only flew when you had your fingers on 'em.
Now it's the space bar and a mouse, but I don't miss the splicing block and razor blade (except the look on people's faces when it was time to cut up the 2 inch, whoo hoo!) Oh yeah, now when I tell the faders what to do they fly on their own (gotta like that)
PT and audio post pays the bills but recording music wherever you find it is where the fun is. I'm just starting out in the remote world with a mediocre kit of Digi pres and a handfull of modded Chinese mics. Hey it's a start and I can't afford 2500 bucks for an 1176.

Awesome forum. I'm learning a lot. Thanks.

Bob's a great guy; I'm happy to see his old rig live on.

Congrats on the purchase.

Roll Call

Put me on your roll, or list. I'll tell you about the various roles I play.

I'm mainly into high quality amateur recordings. My main place to post stuff is in YouTube under the name JackTadoussac.

I'm fascinated with the history of recording -- but I think the only money I want to spend is on digital related gear, or on bits like mics that you can use for a long time, unaffected by obsolesce.

At the moment I have a pair of sm57, pair of re20, and pair of ev635b, and the Line Audio mp2 mic pre and a Konnekt24d (that still works).

I could see maybe getting a 2 channel sound devices recorder, maybe, or the new Duet, and maybe a pair of ksm141 to bust into condenser mics.

Mostly I have been happy to record the occasional duet with my friend George -- my buddy on YouTube -- but has recently passed away due to cancer -- so I may have to do some solo recording and perhaps get into songwriting.

Don't think I posted here yet.

Name:
David O'Brien

Rank:
Head Honcho and Cable Wrapper, Nomad Recording Studio
Greenbelt, MD, USA

Specialty:
Location recording in the Washington DC area. Mostly recording choral concerts, but the occasional orchestra, church group, band demo in my basement studio, voice over etc. Still keeping my day job, but if I can get my wife to work hard and get a promotion maybe I can do this recording thing full time heh.

Thought for today:
With kid #1 on the way next week, is an SM57 an appropriate baby toy? What if I wrap it in pink gaffers tape? She is definitely not getting near my Schoeps until she is at least 16, maybe not even then tutt

Rank: Trained as an historian, worked as a COBOL programmer, now I play with recording gear.


Speciality: Anything that is happening around my area that will sit still long enough for me to set up.


Location: Astoria, Oregon


Et Cetera: I have loved music all my life, classical and jazz. In the '60's I branched out. Didn't we all? I had fun during that period, I think. I am out on the coast of Oregon now in a small town, the rainiest in the US, trying to learn how to capture music and make it sound good without making it sound fake. Van Gelder and the Fines are my heroes, along with our treasured authors: Eargle and Bartlett. The propellor heads on this board are a constant source of guidance, inpiration and knowledge for me. I am having a lot of fun doing this and it gives me an excuse not to cut the grass.


NB: I should have done this a long time ago but did not peek into this thread until tonight. Sorry about that.

Wow, has it really been a year since the last addition to this list?!? Well, in that case let me jump on and get counted among this great collection of likeminded individuals.

Name: J Hoover

Location: Chicagoland and greater Midwest

Rank: Tough call. My day job (10 years or so) is doing sound/lights/video production for corporate events. My night job is doing location sound recording and music mixing for anyone and everyone I can find. So... I guess seasoned amateur?

Specialty: Location/onsite multitrack recording. I prefer the sound of clean, well tuned/played acoustic instruments and try to always maintain an unprocessed signal path. But I also dig getting down and dirty doing whatever-it-takes punk rawk basement shows.

History: Dropped out of a degree in something productive and meaningful choosing instead to remain broke and impoverished my whole life. But having a blast doing it everyday! I work a day job but still find time to get out and do location recording any chance I get. Several years back I embarked on a new side project with a friend of mine filming/recording musicians playing live on a rooftop (a la Beatles final performance). Since then we've turned into something more than we ever expected and are still rocking this "project" 3 years later. - shameless self promotion - check out Rooftop Sessions Chicago if you've finally exhausted all other web surfing options.

Gear: BLA modded 003r, presonus/grace/drawmer/focusrite preamps, DBX compression, urei EQ, Shure/Rhode/Sony/AKG/Beyerdynamic/RadioShack mics

Thought for the day: Licentia of mens est licentia of animus

Looking forward to contributing to the conversation after many years of aimless lurking!

After all of this pussyfooting I'm ready to launch and reveal my identity to you

I'm in the midst of writing a book and taking an inventory of my client's collection of musical instruments and recording technology.

I am primarily a two channel advocate. My first twin track rig, circa 1977, comprised of a pair of Beyer Soundstar Mics (hand soldered to 1/4 inch phone jacks) plugged into a Realistic Cassette Deck.

I pledge to my Queen and country to refrain from further discussion of my plans on public forums. Cheerio Gearslutz, but I assure you I have enjoyed this community more than any other community of the internet (such as other pro audio forums or those centred around a type or brand of acoustic guitar).

Past: I have a degree in Broadcasting Technology. I spent 5 years working as a touring recording tech, recording some of the biggest bands in existence (until we got undercut quite severely). I then made inroads into TV and Film audio around 2010.

Future: The rig is getting a few new faces, and moving my UFX to full capacity. Two new 8 input preamps and a Focusrite 2802 controller/mixer. Aiming to keep it mobile too, at around 6U to 8U, on wheels.

Present: I have a website which you are more than welcome to visit: charliehurst.co.uk ; and a twitter account you are more than welcome to meet me on: @chazhurst

Live recording is all about capturing the moment in the purest, most accurate manner possible. The fact that it will be overdubbed and mixed to death really has no bearing on the matter.
