Neil Young Fights For High Resolution Digital

On the side of sanity and audio purity... Neil Young. On the side of cluelessly misinformed moron tech pundits... Mossberg and Kafka. Though Neil's 100% is based on ultra-high sampling rates that are, frankly, silly marketing BS.

Questions Of Balance

While audio production requires a lot of technical understanding of gear, signal flow and boundless tracking and mixing techniques, I believe it's even more important to understand the more abstract nature of recording. In this article I explain my conceptual way of looking at sound recording and offer a few questions which can help you to identify what really makes a great record.

Danglin’ A Foot Back In Tracking Waters

I miss those tracking sessions where a really great band all plays in the same room together live to multi-track. So, I'm offering up a deal for Atlanta area artists to record and overdub all they can in 16 hours. Then I'll follow up with mixing and mastering in the following couple of weeks. An EP or album ready for release in a couple of weeks... sound good?

    Make A Complete Album in 16 Hours
    There's two things that I feel strongly about:
    • A recording should be a document of sound in place and time which should immerse the listener in that moment.
    • Bands should not invest more in a recording than they should reasonably be able to make back in less than one year.
    And that's why I've crafted this package. It gives bands a meticulously tracked, mixed and mastered release that honestly documents 16 hours of hard work. And at the current sale price, a band can break even with 400 digital album sales at $5 each.

    Currently on sale!


    $3,000.00
