    The Internet's Best Recording Resources

    These days we want it and we want it now. I want to compile a list of the Internets most plentiful recording resources. Here we can display the links to recording articles,

    threads, pages, and videos that we find to be of the highest quality. Not everybody wants to search through every thread on every forum so maybe those of us that have been into

    the woods can cut down some of the brush for them.

    I believe that collectively, we can compile a list of the richest online resources. Feel free to dispute the usefulness of one article or promote another.

    There is a guide to mastering at the Izotope site which is excellent.

    Even if you don't use Ozone to master, the guide is broad enough to give you a good understanding of using all the tools of mastering. Well written and comprehensive.

    I find the link on drum tuning bothersome - there's several red flags and some of the info is just flat wrong.

    Who would call their info a "Bible"?

    I know little about drum tuning or even drums. I thought it was a good read since I've seen many refer to it. Do you know of a better source for drum tuning on the internet? If so, please share!

    I know I shouldn't say anything if I don't have a better source of tuning info but I don't. When that guy said that the reso "is mostly responsible for the pitch" I shook my head. No mention of calf heads. He completely leaves out the method of lightly touching the center of the head and tapping around the head, which is like how guitarists use 12th fret harmonics to tune. The site came off as hokey to me.

    Although decades old, the info at 404 Not Found on the "EV PA Bible" is still pertinent and worth looking at.

    Fletcher, at Mercenary Audio, admits he's a loudmouth, but at least he's got Platinum and Gold records to back it up and he's always been gracious to me. There's a bevy of info on his site:
    404 Not Found
    Fletcher was the first guy I ever heard proclaiming that the "SM57 is the best cheap mic" he was saying that 20 years ago, and it gets repeated on this forum daily.

    here's something i stumbled across a few days ago. (Principles of Rock Guitar Tone)

    it explains a bit about tube amps, how they work and some tone tips. not sure if any of it holds any water but i think its worth a read.

    and heres a link that describes the tones of wood used in popular guitars (http://www.jemsite.com/jem/wood.htm). explains, the physical appearance, the tone characteristics, how it interacts with different neck woods, fret boards, and body tops. this could help an indecisive guitar shopper find out what he/she wants. AGAIN: not sure if it holds any water. maybe light or tadpui could drop by.
