Week-8 Mix: Me
and My Arrow
Thanks to all who participated and to Jake
for staying late. Lots of razor blades and no blood!
Week-5 mid-term exam / homework
Download the files below. Take-4
is the preferred take. Wherever you hear a "flaw" than can be fixed
- either by copying a part from the same take or "borrowing" from another
take - do so. Take good notes, because we will do the edits on Tuesday.
Send me an mp3 with your notes and bring a CD on Tuesday.
week-4 session: Love
The One You're With
Well, you can't say we didn't work hard
on Tuesday! Thanks again to everyone for their perseverance and endurance.
I think we got a very decent sounding track with just some editing to do.
I will post all of the takes - about three and a half and you can edit
the "best of" into a master take to be handed in on Tuesday. We will
then cut tape according to your edit decision list.
week-4; Final OD for Summertime
Blues and new song entry...
Week-3 Recording: Summertime
A job well done by all, we accomplished
all but the "break vocals" in 3 1/2 hours! Thanks to Ross Kleiner
and John Rausch for lead vox and percussion. You guys win the "engagement
award" for enthusiasm, commitment and curiosity - Florida's reaction to
the echo was priceless (thanks for improving the timing), and Miranda,
you don't have to worry about breaking the gear. I was
very happy with our Nashville tuning experiment.
Please do share your thoughts and observations.
Instruments: Jake on Guitars, Nathan
Engineering and Tape op duties:
Jon, Florida and Miranda
Claps: Just about everyone.
To record Summertime Blues. It gives
us an excuse to use tape echo - one of THE effects back in the fifties.
We can record to four-track any number of ways - track at a time or all
at once. If we could get started on week-2 by laying down percusion
- claps, something to bang on and possibly one guitar / ref track - then
we can focus on the artist(s) who will play on week-3. So, if you
are at all inclined to play - really, the parts are so simple we could
bang out a rhythm track farily quickly, even if it's only an exercise /
prep for week-3. It shouldn't consume your life but it would be
great if you could practice ahead of class.
