Appletini, Anyone?

It was a different time-- a brief stint of artists 'cleaned up', if you will-- what I mean is, while it was my control room the talent flowing through were watching what they eat and what they put into their veins... it was mineral water and vegetable trays, fresh lox and bagels, hard to come-by herbal teas and high-dollar imported water. I only heard the stories of mounds of coke on the producers' desk about the years prior: the continual tweaking that became commonplace in the studio… Continue

Idiot Boy - A personal success.

Idiot Boy is my first commercial production as producer, recording engineer and mixer. From preproduction to final mix--

You see, at the time -- 1996 -- there weren't many folks in the Recording Industry program (some of you may know as RIM) that could afford their own gear. I had my own adat studio even before I started MTSU... this coupled with a nice size house I… Continue
