I am a freelance engineer in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada!). I record all kinds of music, but I've been doing mostly heavy or experimental stuff recently. I've been in several bands, and am in two functioning projects right now.

Here is a link to some audio clips. The rest of the website is under construction, sorry!

http://www.mid-fi.com/audio.htm

I'll just give a brief speil about the stuff that's on the above page...I recorded and mixed all of it...


Dreaming City was a band that existed in several forms from 1998 to 2004...the drum/guitar stuff is the most recent. It was recorded live, no overdubs. I played drums, and a chap by the name of J Freeman played guitar.

The recording project stuff was from a two year period prior to the guitar/drum stuff. I played drums, bass, and guitar on those songs and J played bass and guitar. We both sang.

The Blasphenaut was a ridiculous disco-gabber-grind outfit in which I played bass. Those songs are from a 10" record that was the last release of Minneapolis label History of the futurE.

Head Hits Concrete is a grind unit that sounds like machinery. I played bass in this one too. Sadly, we just went on indefinite hiatus. These songs are from a very limited 7" that was pressed for our summer tour this past August.


I am in two very new projects, another guitar/drum duo with Darcy from HHC called Prague, and a college-math band called Prada. I haven't played out with either of them, that's how fricken new they are.

Aside from playing, I'm trying to set up a studio...difficult task, indeed.



That's about where I'm at now.

This is a cool thread.

My bands called Elohsa. You'll never guess where the name came from.

Anyway heres the album. www.elohsa.com/217_Snapshots/

It was tracked on an Ardvark Q10, mixed on CEP2 and only waves plugins.

My personal favorites are track 8.9. and 14. Fan favorites are 7, 8 and 15, although they vary quite a bit.

Jay, that was some good stuff. Rythmic and interesting, good harmonies. Get an album out there and I'll buy it!!

thanks, the record should be done in early 05, tracking is almost done......in my epic dreams for this record i enlisted fellow PSW poster "lord" to write segues for the whole record.

there won't be any silence in the record.....every song will be segued together............

we still need a record label to put it out.....

Thanks J. I do too!! The biggest problem is finding a space/building that is suitable layout-wise AND that you can make noise in without bothering anyone else. I've been looking at places off and on for months, no luck yet! Oh well. It will happen eventually.

"takeout" and i spent some time looking around this city for a place we could build a really nice studio.  our idea was to buildout a tracking room (maybe a few iso booths) and control room for him to track in.....then add another control room attached to the tracking room that would be my mix room.

we ended up finding some really cool spaces in some places around town we never knew existed......

in the end, we decided not to take on such a huge undertaking in this city......not to say we won't do it some day, but just not now.

anyway.....we had trouble finding places until we started driving around trying to get lost.

The name's Nick Holmes
Tracked the Constantines "Shine A Light"
Tacked & mixed the Sadies "Stories often Told"
...& a bunch of others. This year's been mostly road work with A Silver Mt Zion, Do Make Say Think, & bits & pieces of other tours (the occasional BSS or Black Ox Orkestar for instance).
Hoping to do a couple of records soon.
Oh yeah... no love from AMG (of course)
Cheer,
Nick

I play guitar in a band called With Every Idle Hour.  I interned at a project studio here on Long Island in the late 90's not knowing my ass from my elbow.  Well, I think I've figured out the difference between those two, but I've got quite a bit to learn about audio still.  

I do all of our recordings (like that's not painfully obvious?!) and we work in our drummer's dad's warehouse.  He's a pretty chill dude and let me take over an old unused office for a control room and we use the warehouse space for the live room.  Not the greatest sounding space in the world, but I'm not looking any gift horse in the mouth.  

You can hear our doo doo by clicking on the link in my signature.  Thanks!

Eddie here.

Band is "Cuatro Caminos", playing dub-ified Mexican influenced rock music.
I play guitars and percussion and sing. We used to be just a recording project band, but now we've gone "live" with a stripped-down sound. Our debut record has a bunch of horns, keys, vocal harmonies and multiple guitar tracks that we can't do live but we forge ahead anyway.
Here's our 'site: www.stumprecords.com

First project done on Digital Performer and Adats, Mackie 24/8 (mine)and Soundcraft Spirit (partner's).
414's, 57's and assorted other mics.  
Mixed and mastered by Matt Murman in Phoenix. He's a partner.

I'm trying my hand at recording friend's bands but I really must upgrade my format soon. This site is excellent for tips and tricks, for sure.

Best,
Eddie Gonzales

Hmmmmm...

I was the singer/bassist of a band called Four Pointed Sisters
http://www.geocities.com/fourpointedsisters
Unfortunately I don't think there is any place on the interenet our music can still be found.........

The only thing I'm really engaged in now is videography, working for a place called Cass Advertising. We make commercials for local businesses. I'd like to think that the video and audio quality of our commercials has increased a lot since I started, but they can always be better.

That is very cool!  A friend and I started an LLC where we do commericals for local businesses too.  We enjoy it!  You can check some of our stuff out here...Would appreciate your thoughts.

Cool commercials! Are the 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and Hatcher Homes spots shot on film or video? They look like film to me, but it's a hard call with Windows Media Player being as crappy as it is.

I would love to work with film, but due to our client-base our production budgets won't permit it. We do a fair enough job with miniDV, I think. Your commercials are tight and very professional looking! How many people do you have handling production?

Hi guys 'n gals,

longtime lurker in all of these forums.  I usually get enough of a kick out of reading everyone's posts, that i don't need to speak up.  and usually, my clacking around on a keyboard annoys the people i'm working with.  but since this is for meeting all the people i read all of the time, i thought i'd jump in and say hi.

i'm an assistant engineer at one of the big studios in l.a.  but i use it in down time to cut local bands.  also was in nashvile doing the same thing but at a publishing company.  so some of my projects are:

midnight movies- e.p. and some work on emperor norton lp
will kimbrough- first solo lp
giant drag- ep
shoot out the lights ep
mixed a song on vue's rca ep
guy clark- cold dog soup

so anyway, i'm here to say that indie rock is in the spirit, not the gear you have.  i cut just as many tracks in my bedroom as you guys do.  

good meeting ya'll

J.D. Andrew
