New Focal mains monitors

I've added the Focal Twin6 be's to the studio's monitoring arsenal. These guys are capable of resolving the finest detail and have power to spare all resulting in a better tracking and mixing environment.

MICHAEL BEINHORN - Reframing the Recording Paradigm

Michael Beinhorn who's credits include Soundgarden, Ozzy Osborne, RHCP and Herbie Hancock, lays out the ground work for making a record today.

These common sense suggestions should guide your project to a successful conclusion.


'Modern recording budgets are generally smaller and hover in the low five figure range. Many are artist-financed or patron-financed productions and often, don’t even involve record labels.'

What do the Black Crowes, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Papa Roach, Velvet Revolver and AC/DC have in common?

This guy.

Bredan O'Brien is a busy producer, check out this interview with him discussing how he got started and his views on the studio.

I agree with and practice his philosophy's on every record I work on.

I call it studio smart.

VINYL IS ON IT’S WAY BACK

VINYL IS ON IT’S WAY BACK

I absolutely love listening to music on vinyl. It’s a exhilarating  experience which other formats can’t come close. From the art work, the act of playing a record, to the sound vinyl has few rivals.

Vinyl sales are on the rise. This is a good thing and bodes well for an industry that is struggling to redefine itself in this age of rampant downloading and blah sounding MP3’s.

YOUR BRAIN ON MUSIC

I always suspected that music stimulated the brain in different ways from regular life.  It turns out musicians get an even larger brain boost from playing music.
