    With great monitors its easy to hear and fix problems but hard to enhance things that already sound good.

    With hyped monitors, everything sounds good so you don't hear the problems.

    With bad monitors, it seems easy to make absolutely anything sound better because you are really fixing the sound of the monitors rather than the sound of the recording.

    Our secret: only adding a track every 4 weeks, and letting that "settle" and then adding another.



    It was fun and I like it. Turns out are all fairly busy; we started in June I think, so if you love it so much that you want to hear one more you might have to wait until about May.... Or probably June because we're taking this month off.
    Thanks!

    And the Emmy for Best Bass Sound goes to....Rollin' Beat!!

    Damn, that was a fine-ass sound...and Tom's drums, as usual, bring life to the song like blood to our bones.

    Great mix, great song, great job!

    I ran the bass thru the filter section of a moog minitaur.
    they should just sell the filter section with no oscillators, midi/etc.
    just cutoff, resonance, and eg amount knobs.
    it's uber useful, you can push things around in a way that can't be accomplished with eq.

    Very nice job indeed.
    Love the mix, good to hear some dynamics.
    Collaboration is just such a cool thing!... Have no Idea why this is not catching on?.
    Anyway kudos all around for great job, and thx for the song!!


    Yer gonna feel pretty wrong when I come sailing into your breakfast nook behind the wheel of a cement mixer, and start twiddling around on yer skull with a fucking tire iron. I'll be humming "Watcher of the Skies" the whole while.
