    My new (old) U3 piano and the recording thereof, part deux

    Continuation of last post on my recently purchased 76 Yamaha U3 upright. Finally got it tuned after about a month to get acclimated to new environment. After some false starts with ground loop/noise issues, noisy power, gain issues, mic problems, boom problems, etc. I am finally up and...

    Hey all, Super excited. Been looking for a new piano for 2 years, finally found "the one" and pulled the trigger. It's a minty fresh 77 Yamaha U3 (tallest upright they make), plays like butter, sounds like thunder. It's a massive upgrade from my previous P22. Gets delivered tomorrow morning...

    The lost art of living

    This is a track I've been working on that's been KILLING me. Stylistically I am going for a 60s kind of vibe. I realize the vocal is super wet - that part is intentional, and that my vocal is all over the map and pitchy - so it goes - I've tried about 100 vocal takes of this thing.. I had this...

    They Don't

    Anyone else using Garritan CFX Concert Grand?

    I'm blown away by the Garritan CFX, anyone else using it? Most of the reviews say something along the lines of this - “The best point of all is that you very quickly forget you are playing a virtual piano as it feels so much like you are playing the genuine article.”, and I actually am finding...

    Please to listen to my new track and feedback - 'Facsimiles'

    Stylewise it’s another 80s type of joint with some crampy vocals. My grey roots are seriously showing on this one….. Hadn’t done an electronic number since last year. As I relayed to the Heatmiser - major renovations on the house, my 'studio' is long gone - so I don't have my drums, piano...

    Maybe some mix feedback on a track called suprise yourself

    Looking for some feedback on this initial mix. Its an oddball kinda track for me. I used lots of synths and tried for a 'big drum' sound. Other than that it's my usual menagerie of Gretsch, Les, JBass, Guild acoustic, lotsa plate reverb (yeah I know). Used some weird guitar effects. I downloaded...

    Hi all. I have an MXL 880 Mic I am selling and thought I would post it here before the other forums in case any themers are looking. Link to specs is below.

    Yes, it's Country time again..

    This is a cover of an old Ricky Nelson track in my patented goofy faux country style. I could sure use some ears and advice cause it is driving me batty. You guys were a big help with my synth and garage rock crap, so why not country :-) Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions whatever would be most...
