It feels good to know you enjoy it. What pleases me
about that production is the band. They aren't
flawless, they never rehearsed, but they are talented
players. They rock my world!

The Cold Duck recording is a live production done in a
bar. I used my Tascam DM-24 to record which, as
expected, has crappy preamps. Consequently the quality
of the printed tracks does not compare with what I
consistently produce in the studio where we've got mid
level grade preamps.

I think the cool thing for all of us is that we can
learn to produce very good quality sound with whatever
gear we own. You don't need to own a $5,000.00 vocal
signal path to make yourself sound excellent. It helps
alot to have high end gear when you need to
consistently produce great results for many other
people. Everyone of us can learn to do great things
with the gear we own.

I'm psyched about all the music production that's
happening on the list. I think my old band is about to
do a new album. I want to join the fun.
