Another great video from Glenn at Spectre Media Group.

 

Are you applying pitch correction, sample replacement and quantizing instruments without considering what it does to the emotional impact of the song? Knock that shit off!

Mastodon Making of Once More ‘Round the Sun

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Mastodon has published four short videos documenting the process of recording their latest album Once More ‘Round the Sun. There’s not a lot to learn from these videos – they’re not tutorials of course – but you might get a kick out of seeing all the sweet guitars and other gear.
One thing I found particularly interesting was how guitarist Brent Hinds does a lot of his single-note picking parts right at the bridge. This is something I can steal for my recordings!

picture-641356Hey guys, just a heads up that the CreativeLive Studio Pass with Steve Evetts class is about to start.

https://www.creativelive.com/courses/studio-pass-w-steve-evetts-ben-weinman

Learn how to get perfect guitar tones in the studio during this 10-hour class on tracking guitars.

Getting great guitar tones is all about the details. Steve and Ben cover how to select the right guitar, strings and picks, how to choose the right head and cabinet combo, and how to get a great tone. From there, they go through the process of selecting and placing mics. Finally, they show you how to track guitars the professional way (no cutting corners— ever!) and edit the tracks so you’ve got everything you need for a flawless mix.

Steve Evetts is a producer, engineer and mixer who has worked with some of the most defining bands in this generation of punk, hardcore, metal, and alternative. His credits include Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence, Lifetime, Saves The Day, Hatebreed, Sepultura, The Cure, Every Time I Die, Alesana, and The Wonder Years.

Video: Russian Circles Rig Rundown

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Premier Guitar always has great gear videos. I’m a big fan of Russian Circles‘ music so I was pretty stoked to find this video interview and run through of the guitar and bass gear. There’s also some interesting info on the recording process, particularly with combining amps. The video was recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago.

EZDrummer 2_part 2 logo

For part 2 of my EZ Drummer 2 review I’m exploring the interface and demonstrating some of the presets. Gotta say, so far this is pretty damned intuitive and I’ve barely dug into it yet.

The plugin is out next month, check out the video below for a preview.

Are you already an EZDrummer user? Thinking of upgrading? Are there any features you want me to dig into for the 3rd video? Let me know in the comments below!
