    Nasty, over-the-top 60 cycle hum

    Hey everyone, Ever since moving into this new apartment 2 years ago I've been combating the nastiest 60 cycle hum ever. I'm positive that's what it is - the kind of hum that comes and goes as you rotate throughout the room. I can find the two 180 degree points in which to stand where it...

    Fender Mustang II - rock tone test recording

    Hey guys, I adore my Fender Mustang II for its clean and blues tones. Even though it's solid state, the clean/blues tones that come out of this $200 amp are killer when miked. But I've always had trouble dialing in a great rock tone. Still, I wanted to have the option not to lug my Peavey JSX...

    Hey everyone! Many months ago I uploaded an interpretation of "Fortunate Son" by CCR (if you haven't heard it, there's a reason I'm not calling it a cover). We had lots of great feedback and made adjustments accordingly. UPDATE 12/12...

    Saddle heights on Tune-o-matic bridges

    Hey guys, I've got a brand new Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro. It's my first guitar with a Tune-o-matic bridge. I have many guitars with Fender style and Floyd Rose, so I'm not used to the design. It appears that you cannot adjust the individual saddle heights on the Tune-o-matic. The...

    Overkill - Colin Hay / MAW Cover

    I'm glad you enjoyed the mix, and I am happy to wait for some new vocals and then make other adjustments to the current mix. I would be happy to discuss the various decisions that I made. 1. The first thing I did, that any engineer needs to do, is organize the tracks. You had labeled the files...

    Hey guys, This is a mix I did for a live video from a recent theater show. For those of you who don't know, I do a one-man variety show combining magic, comedy, mind reading, and music. Anyway the mix was challenging because it was so naked. I had two sources: feed from Rode camera condenser...
