"Give me great singers and great players and a great producer, I will produce a very good product. Put me in a great studio with the same core individuals, I bet you'd all be happy with the product."

With all that you'd better make a *great* product and not just a good one.  There are many who can make a great product with less.

Me?  I'm just innocently piling on.  But it's still true (for anyone).

I vote this guy off the island. He needs a little more living to be able to make a contribution here - even in the Saloon.

Threats require apologies and contrition. None to be seen. With all due respect Dean - which is none - the problem with you and Ivan in a studio wouldn't be both your egos. And it wouldn't be his.

This is the most amusing thread...

I was once threatened with a lawsuit by a woman named Sue.

Isn't that ironic?

But seriously, don't C1000's make great overheads?
You guys are just being mean.

Yeah, now I'm just being silly and Bragin' up the rhythm section in my trio Surprised .. I don't see why they put with me Shocked

I just could not seem to make the 1000's work.. I did a Rap guy with a 3000 though, and it hurt perfectly! It was crazy aggressive and abusive sounding..

I did have some C1000's for a bit. Thought about keeping them to have something to blame my poor drum tracking on. After some thought it seemed wiser to get better mics and take the blame myself.

I previously posited that this was a hoax.

I now feel that what we have here is a classic inability to self-evaluate, coupled with a bad case of ifimentionimalawertheyllbeintimidated syndrome.

Just a theory, and subject to future reevaluation.

Hello Dean,

Can I ask what you are attempting to do here?

I looked at your list of posts and it appears that on February 28th, 2008 you publicly posted your "for real" contract with no encouragement from anyone else, and asked for comments from the Whatever Works forum members. You then took issue with the answers you received. The thread started here

http://recforums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/m/319958/1339/#ms g_319958

and I have to say that I still get a kick out of reading it! Especially clause 13. That one just cracks me up!

Anyway, on Sunday March 2nd, 2008 you entered your last post on that thread and later in the day Ross shut it down, if I'm not mistaken.

What I'm intrigued by, is the fact that just four hours and ten minutes later, you posted the following on another WW thread.

Quote:

The idea of making money at music is dying, but the art is flourishing. The money is consolidating into the likes of Itunes, etc.

I had a discussion about this yesterday. The future of music is the subscription service and every band or artist will have an XM channel and share in the subscriptions. I predict there will be thousands of XM stations, some dedicated to one artist or band. My wife jogs with a portable XM receiver on which she can download anything she has heard and later play it again at her leisure. The studios of the future will be dedicated to uploading music onto XM channels. And to think 25 years ago I had the opportunity to be a venture owner of a gps satellite and turned it down.


This is certainly NOT the post of someone who believes they have been mortally wounded by the members of this forum. It appears for all the world that you have just rejoined the rank and file in a civil and potentially informative way.

Then EIGHT MONTHS later you take up your sward and start slashing at the same people you have just been living with. Very curious.

Did you just have a slow day? Maybe a fight with the missus? In any case, you're needlessly attacking good folks, (Max is a medical doctor) and making a pariah out of your name. You were accepted back in once before, and I imagine if you cut the crap, you would be accepted (it might take a bit longer this time) again. Now I bet you tell me that being accepted is not important to you. However we both know that it actually is.

Important.

Best regards,

Bill

I don't know what I'd be more afraid of - being sued by this guy or a trip to his "percussion room":

Much has changed since the early days.  Behind those "blankets" are 2 inch isolation panels that have since been installed permanently and in a rather more attractive fashion. The only remaining mic you see in that photo is the 57 on the snare.  Don't knock the tv...its the drummer's camera monitor to the vocal booth, control room, and live room...works like a champ with wireless cameras and split screens for everyone.


Actually, it's the Aquarian head on the kick and that huge fucking pillow that bothers me more than the mics.  Who cares what mics you use.  I can only imagine how awful that sounds.

Hi JJ,

For me, it wasn't the mics but the strange foam 'thingies' on them.. Yeah, the pillow would have to go..

Ya know, Dean, for a price, I'll fly in and get you a drum sound.. Surprised

John, as somebody who takes pride in his ability to tune a drum, there's nothing I hate more than the sound of those Aquarian kick drum heads.  It's like riding a bike with training wheels.  Any moron can use it, but the ride is going to suck.

You and I have something in common. I have worked hard on tuning drums for years and it has paid off.

I like a Power stroke 3 for some sounds, and I still like coated Emperors with or without an impact pad. depending on the tune/band. I generally don't like anything in the drum, I like both heads on for most sounds, with a hole. {without a hole can be a great sound too.},

HA! We could talk about this for ever Cool  It's a blast. I love drums.

A woman asked her gynecologist if she could get pregnant from having anal sex. He replied, "Sure, that's how we get lawyers."
