The studio song was great Richard. Even from the vinyl source then to MP3 the sounds were very interesting and totally "analogy"! The guitars were very cool and I dug the '70's drum sounds (I'm a sucker for the thuddy, cardboard box tom sound.)
Great thread idea!
Where is everyone? Anyway, I'm hoping to have a few tunes up this weekend.
Here's another from the same fellow. This was not recorded in the studio, but in the "show room" of the professional audio shop that I used to work at. In a previous life the "show room" was Studio A of Sound 80 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_80) studios in Minneapolis. I used to experiment with new toys when they came in so that I could properly demonstrate equipment to my customers. This song is a result of experimenting with a "new" Klark Teknik Digital Delay unit. The recording though is analog. I believe I used a Tascam 58 as the multitrack. Recoded using a Tascam 520 console and mixed to an Otari MTR-10 (maybe?). This was probably around 1982 or so. The writer, Tim, sort of let me have my way with the song so I went just a bit crazy, suggesting the weird background voices and all the effects. This is called "One Winter's Day on a New York Subway". If you listen closely you can hear the "subway sound" come in after the rather long intro and continuing in the background through the song. The "subway sound" was created by having three of the guys sing "AHHHH" into a microphone and running it through the above KT unit set on an infinite decay reverb setting. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page...songID=8167914
Dude, that's a cool song. Sound is fantastic. Well, that's analog for ya. HEHE
Here is a song by my band Kings Pawn. It's the third rehearsal and was messed up by not knowing the song. It has gone through Manny changes since we started and are working on finishing it soon. After uploading it I noticed the sound is VERY VERY bad. I guess it's from going from tape to digital (wave file) to MP3 through Audacity. No EQ Compression or DBX Noise Reduction was used. Buying a DBX 231 EQ this weekend. I'm looking forward to using it. I know things sound horrid without it.
Please, I know it's bad so you don't need to post negative comments. Thanks
