    New Studio/Music Room

    I'd been talking for years about moving from my house in the country with the custom built studio--and it finally happened. It actually happened over six months ago. I was depressed over the loss of the old studio, so I've been dragging my feet on setting up the new one. (And the new one is not...

    Something new...

    I feel like I'm new to the clinic (it's been so long!), but I'd love some input. So for what it's worth, here's an experiment. Check out this track and let me know what you think. It's a bit long--but stick with it. It should change up enough to keep your interest...

    Going back to work...

    <personal life rant> About six months ago, I lost my job. I'm fortunate in that it didn't wreck my life like it would have in the past. Our bills are paid, we had plenty in savings, and my wife was doing well. So yeah, at the young age of 48, I thought this might just be early retirement! In...

    Thank you dragonworks!

    dragonworks came across an old thread of mine about an old Tascam board I had bought. He contacted me via PM and asked me if I needed a manual (because he had one!). He then scanned and emailed me the manual--out of the goodness of his heart! Thanks dude, I really appreciate that, and just...

    This is genius!

    Someone has made an "album" whose songs are comprised of the sounds captured in a Guitar Center. (Sounds better than most of my stuff!) Here's the link to the album on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/driftlessrecordings/sets/noah-wall-live-at-guitar-center

    Young and old...

    I know I haven't been real active on this board for a long time, but it's still one of my favorite places on the internet. I may not post much anymore, but I stop in and read the latest every single day. Whether you know it or not, I know most of you by name, and I feel like you're old friends...

    Urei (Universal Audio) items for sale

    I've got a couple of Urei (UA) items I'd like to sell. I've got a 1176 LN Limiting Amplifier and a 546 Dual Parametric EQ. I haven't decided what they're worth yet, so I'm kind of looking to see if there's some interest. I'd rather sell them here than on eBay. If you're interested in either, let...

    Thanks Cardinals!

    As a life-long St. Louisan and Cardinals fan, I'm supposed to feel bad about their loss to the Giants tonight. I don't. I love that the Cards take us to post-season play every year. But even more important than that, I love that they gave me a refund. I had thousands of dollars in World...

    Youth on Fire

    I posted a very rough instrument-only sketch of this song a few weeks ago. Here's the tune with vocals. This is my nephew's band--he wrote the song and plays the rhythm and lead guitars. Obviously, it's a freebie, since it's family, but I still want to get it right. This is not my genre, so i'm...

    Good times...

    Last October, my son and my (now) daughter-in-law got married. Since then, they've bought a house, sold a house, changed jobs, and moved to Florida. Suffice it to say that they've been busy. So they're just now getting around to posting some pics from the wedding. Sorry for bragging, but this...

    Back in the studio

    God, it's good to be back in the studio. It's probably been two years or more since I've done a session. I always seem to attract the youngsters (and no, I don't drive around in a van offering free candy). This is my nephew (on rhythm and lead guitar) and his bandmates. (They're all sixteen.)...

    Parachuting: Completely off topic!

    Anybody here ever jump out of a plane? I'm terrified of heights. It's the biggest physical challenge I face. But lately I've found a rush in facing that fear. Whether it's a crazy roller coaster or climbing up an winding staircase in a lighthouse--the fear of doing it almost paralyzes me, but...

    Need help connecting loaded pickguard

    It's been forever since I've done this, and I can't seem to get the mfr on the phone so I'll ask here. I've bought a new loaded pick guard for one of my Strats, and I need to connect it to the guit body (obviously). From the guitar body I have 1) a black and white wire coming from the jack...

    An oldie but a goodie...

    I think the Clinic is the single most valuable part of this site. I haven't recorded anything new in ages--life gets in the way--but I thought it might be fun to post an old track and see what the new crowd thinks of it. Obviously, these are canned drums, but everything else is me. Enjoy, or...

    New sound for an old wanker

    Yep, I'm a wanker--at least when it comes to playing guitar. I favor the 80's hair bands and the Vai's and Satriani's of today in terms of guitar style. One of the of signature attributes of my recorded guitar is that it's wet--lot's of reverb and delay. Lately I've been listening to some of my...

    A New/Old Tune

    This is an old jazz progression that I'm sure I've posted before. I was up late in the studio playing with an old Les Paul type guitar. I started out working on an 80's rock piece--but I was drawn to an even older semi-hollow body guitar hanging around in the studio. This jazz/blues piece is the...

    NGD (New Gear Day)

    It took longer than I expected, but I finally took over the small studio that my employer has maintained for voice-over recording for the last twenty years. They were moving the building that contained the studio, and they didn't want to move the studio. They said they'd give me the gear if I'd...

    1945: A visit with Johnny and Helen

    I rolled out of bed this morning and went to put a record on the turntable (hey--it's Sunday, the pace is a little different). In the stack of records that once belonged to Kim's grandparents, I found a "home-recorded" 45 dated April 6, 1945. Well, it was the size of a 45, but it was clearly...

    Solutions Support

    So at work, I just took over the "studio," a single signal chain voice over studio (with a killer booth) that we use mostly for IVR (interactive voice response) phone systems. They asked me to take this task (it works out to about a day a week) because the building that the studio is in is...
