Any Bad Brains fans in here?

i agree with you, helix. in theory. <BR>in fact i skip to the reggae tunes in the 2 bad brains cd i have. <BR>i have no problem with punk or hardcore: i just can't get a vibe out of it. <BR>guidance&light.

A reggae acoustic drumkit - QUESTIONS

peace&bless, <BR>king solomon's right! it's mostly working on the feeling by listening and playing along. <BR>you would develop a sound within yourself first and then try to get it out of the drums. <BR>mr. barret used a metal snare very tight and dry (muted) single heads on toms and bass d...

How can you Dub live?

bless! <BR>to play a steady riddim with the mix eng. doing the mutes etc. would mean you play in such a large venue where the sound of drums (when muted in the mix but still played by the drummer) don't reach the audience. very unlikely. <BR>the dub responsability has to be shared beetwen t...

Clement Dodd passed away

peace&bless, <BR>i had the opportunity to meet the man @ studio1 few weeks before his death. i also gave him a cd that he probably never had the chance to hear: he was busy as always. sir coxsone was certainly a controversial figure but his contribution to (jamaican) music was undubitably m...

Do you use analog or digital recording equipment?

peace&bless, <BR>pure analog path is the best, but -as rightly said above- we end up on a cd, anyway. nowadays... <BR>i personally enjoy the flexibility and commodity of hard disk recording (let alone the cost of 2" tape) and go trough the best analogue equipment i can get into the daw. i u...

Bass in Mix down

peace&bless <BR>i try to record the bass with the final sound in mind. i tune the 4 strings 1 tone down (D-G-C-F) or with the lowest 4 string of a 5 strings (B-E-A-D) roll out most meds and trebbles, go trough a nice di (w/eq) into the daw. then i either mix inside the compu...

Adat, Da38 or Direct-to-disk?

peace&bless <BR>i would go for adat as the most reiable, trouble free on stage. motu interfaces are great and i use them in the studio but a simple tape-mixer thing is safer than software-laptop-interface... <BR>the less links in the chain the less chance of a breakdown. <BR>i've seen mad prof with...

Dub Rhythms? Is it triplets?

peace&bless, <BR>the realm of swing is the infinite space beetween straight 8 and "straight" triplet. <BR>as the master painter has a palette of numberless colors, the master drummer has it in the shades of swing. <BR>listen carefully to how many small -but clearly identificable- variations of the ...
