  1. Wow! 4 months on and it feels like a life time. Things have been crazy busy since the party. I've worked on records from an international metal band to a world music act with five albums behind them. In fact, I've been so busy we still haven't even managed to do all the finishing bits and bobs that had to be put on hold when we re-launched. I have a bit more time to myself over the next few months so I'm going to have a big push to get finished. In the meantime, if anyone is interested in an insider's view of the music industry, you can read what Machiavelli might say over here: http://www.supajam.com/blog/l/Machiavellis-Guide-to-the-Music-Industry
  2. trash the preferences, empty the trash, start again.
  3. Yup. When you work with a decent producer/engineer you generally end up with a much better product than if you self produce (there's a reason record labels require their bands to work with established cats)
  4. [quote name='51m0n' timestamp='1370131541' post='2096904'] That looks totally epic! [/quote] thanks man We are getting close to finishing at this point!
  5. as above. Better to re-record it but if its very minor tweakage melodyne is the best I've come across.
  6. So we finally had the re-launch last Saturday (though tbf there are still things to be done). Here's one taken before the hordes arrived: [IMG]http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g28/Rimskidog/DSC_0119_zps0ac4f197.jpg[/IMG] View from the couch: [URL=http://s52.photobucket.com/user/Rimskidog/media/APIControlroom_zpsd4522b4d.jpg.html][IMG]http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g28/Rimskidog/APIControlroom_zpsd4522b4d.jpg[/IMG][/URL] a close up of my desk: [URL=http://s52.photobucket.com/user/Rimskidog/media/APIcloseup_zps4bddee99.jpg.html][IMG]http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g28/Rimskidog/APIcloseup_zps4bddee99.jpg[/IMG][/URL] With Iron Maiden's front man: [URL=http://s52.photobucket.com/user/Rimskidog/media/DSCN9783_zpsc77db980.jpg.html][IMG]http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g28/Rimskidog/DSCN9783_zpsc77db980.jpg[/IMG][/URL] Here's the Big Room: [URL=http://s52.photobucket.com/user/Rimskidog/media/DSC_0138_zpsc46fb713.jpg.html][IMG]http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g28/Rimskidog/DSC_0138_zpsc46fb713.jpg[/IMG][/URL] And the White room: [URL=http://s52.photobucket.com/user/Rimskidog/media/DSC_0140_zps2052f197.jpg.html][IMG]http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g28/Rimskidog/DSC_0140_zps2052f197.jpg[/IMG][/URL] Nearly there!
  7. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1368917626' post='2083110'] 4 years..! 4 bloody years..! For that alone: medals all round. Good luck with the finishing touches, and congratulations on getting that far. Big thumbs up... [url="http://www.smileyvault.com/"][/url] [/quote] [quote name='51m0n' timestamp='1368953652' post='2083260'] Huge congratulations Trev, it's been fabulous to watch it develop from here, I can't imagine the rollercoaster its been for you though! [/quote] Thanks Gents, very much appreciate it. Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden is coming to do the official launch and I've got a record being released next week so life feels pretty good right now!
  8. Thanks man! Great to see you! For everyone else's interest, we've been working away on dull detail stuff trying to get it finished. Official launch party is coming soon so it's all hands on deck with paintbrushes and cable ties at the moment. Photographer is coming late this week so you might even get some professional photos at last...
  9. If you want great sounding drums, you need a great sounding studio: http://www.circlestudios.co.uk/recordingdrums
  10. Did you use the combi updater? Anything else often causes problems
  11. MAc mini's are great for music production!
  12. and fwiw its entirely true about the wall covering. Though if anyone asks he always says it's mongolian monkey hair... another interesting fact is that the 1176 on the bottom left of your pic (which fwiw was used on bass in Master of Puppets) now resides in my rack... ;-)
  13. [quote name='51m0n' timestamp='1365603746' post='2041684'] Favourite thing about Wireworld (Wagener's gaff) is he used weed matting to cover his absorption, and it looks ace - who would have thought? That and the mountain of fantastic kit obviously! [/quote] That's Wireworld 2 in your pic. The pic from mine is wireworld 3!
  14. [quote name='51m0n' timestamp='1365533178' post='2040868'] Cheat [/quote] Jealousy will get you nowhere! ;-) Here's a little photo of us on the last day for your bedside table: [IMG]http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g28/Rimskidog/Photoon2013-02-14at1755_zps66a28b36.jpg[/IMG]
  15. [quote name='chrismuzz' timestamp='1365001355' post='2033949'] The anti-modelling brigade are a funny sort. Another case of hearing with your eyes rather than your ears! I have had comments and questions about my tone from many golden eared purists, and I've never owned anything with valves in it in my life [/quote] TBH I didn't think modelling even came close until I heard the Kemper. (I wanted them to work for me but I always found them somehow two dimensional). Having heard the Kemper, I ordered one immediately. (Though tbf I was in Nashville at the time producing a record that Michael Wagener - possibly the king of guitar tone - was mixing. Im lucky enough to have brought his full set of Kemper amp tones home with me ;-)
