I have 3 "producer" buttons on my console labelled "beer" "tits" and "ass". When necessary i'll hit one of those and watch as everyone feels the love.

Works every time.


Sorry to be pain, but that is about the unfunniest thing I ever read here; painfully lame imo

sorry



Sorry to be pain?

While I'm sure your sense of humor is full of subtlety and charm, I was not kidding. I really do have those buttons on my console. Thanks for sharing your heartfelt opinion though.

.e. presented with a dubstep track the client is most likely going to want a heckuva lot more low end than a client presenting a typical cumbia would. And a client bringing in a chamber music track will generally want much more natural dynamics left in tact than your typical death metal artist would. So often processing choices (and sometimes the processors themselves) will get made differently for these occasions. Pretending these things don't exist is slightly disengenuous to me - although I agree with you in the vast majority of cases that the same eq's and comps would work on nearly every genre.

Steve,
Do you master a lot of Dubstep?

I've been getting some in from Dutty Artz and Lustre Kings Productions a bit - definitely a very cool development in a future reggae that I think offers a ton of potential for creativity.  

NYC's dubstep scene is relatively small now but I think could start to make some bigger waves above ground at some point soon - the "Dub War" nights at Club Love here are definitely worth checking out - you can get an idea of the vibe at - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrVmEQIsWmw

Got to say that if there is any justice in the world then Jahdan Blakkamore deserves to be a superstar - check him out laying it down completely unplugged at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z81LIy5aOHo

Jason - do you work on a lot of dubstep yourself?  I'm imagining the propensity for enormous amounts of bass end (some of it using synth patches with wide uncorrelated images) makes the cut to lacquer a tricky one sometimes.  

Best regards,
Steve Berson

Wow, that guy is simply awesome! What a talent.

Kinda like a Wyclef sans the ego, with added toasting. Imagine brainstorming all sorts of musical styles in a studio with him, it wouldn't take much of an instrumental background to make final tracks with that voice.

The calmer and more RnB'ish parts reminded me of Jacksoul, btw.

Very OT I know , but;  While this guy is good, what he's doing is neither new or unique...And if there is any Justice in the world, all American rappers would stop pretending that they invented the art form of talking/toasting over music.....any kind of music.

I have records with guys ripping it up over well known classical pieces.

Oh, by the way Steve, reggae, dub and 'dancehall' mixes have been going to vinyl for decades now without any problems.

I never said he was unique, just that he was great.

Talking over music you say? Smile

That Bill Shatner bit (I'm a Rock-It-Man!), and the Family Guy spoof a few years back, had me rolling on the floor!  If you haven't seen it...

I know - I cut a good number to DMM myself.  In cutting vinyl masters bass content is not the problem - it's extensive amount of bass content without its phase correlated that's the problem - which is sometimes occasionally seen in some bass synth patches used in some dubstep or other genres with stereo fx or wide stereo images on them.  You can put an EE on or a VAL on them but sometimes you lose the same impact they have when unprocessed. This is the issue I was referring to.

Steve Berson

I'm amazed no one other than Brad has mentioned the L-2.

Maybe the first couple years it was released it wasn't embarrasing however since then, so many hacks and bedroom ME's simply let it wack off 5 times a second and then proclaim their record "mastered" the tool in my opinion has become an embarrasment.

Now many pseudo-pros dis the L-2 when really it was the users fault.

I can't think of any other tool that has been abused as much as an L-2 because of inexperience.

Used properly on the right mix I still think it sounds very good.

Neve 32087, Neumann BSB-74.

I'm embarrassed because they're my main tools & over 30 years old.
I'd take a big hit if they went away.

(ditto on the L2... has no competition)
