Clearly, it is ATC speaker centric, but the ATC distributer's main business is supplying recording studios with equipment (microphones, etc., etc.), so he does spend quite a bit of time in studios.I mentioned great engineers such as
Al Schmitt http://www.allmusic.com/artist/al-schmitt-mn0000933071 Buy anything he does.
Another is Ed Cherney http://www.allmusic.com/artist/ed-cherney-mn0000172911 Amazing work he does (unless the artist thinks they know better). He bought ATC's in 2010, so his work has improved since then.
In movies another ATC user Dennis Sands: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0762304/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
Steven Kempster http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0447502/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
Both do nice work.
This guy claims he has a six figure system, although that does not necessarily mean he knows what he is talking about, but it would be hard for me to spend 20 bucks on a new groups first album with this kind of review of it out there. It seems to kind of go along with what you are saying about the bass. Do you think it really sounds that good?Surprisingly, here were a couple of very recent recordings that he said are very well engineered/recorded:
London Grammar "Hey Now" -- these three anguished over every detail on their record. It's very clean.
HORRIBLE MIX !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stellar vocals although most verbage is indistinguishable. BOTTOM END IS OVERPOWERING AND BOOMING and almost difficult to listen to a pleasant volume. The bass combined with a horrible 60's drum barrage combines for a muddy piece of music.
A reassessment of the production values, the elimination of electronica combined with a remix ie: addition of a CELLO AND STRINGS would completely change the dynamic of this otherwise melodic collection.
I can only imagine this session was mixed on VERY inexpensive pair of speakers, that did not have any bass response. I can almost feel my baffles absorbing the boom. (might the band book some time @Abbey Road ) and mix on B&W's.
Orchestration, remix, the elimination of the drums, with very few bass riffs would change this CD from a 2 play resale to a lifelong treasure mandating weekly play. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not sure on that one. Mods??? Anyone? I've only posted pics and it seems a lot of people post links to other forums and websites so I wouldn't think it would be a problem but I do not know.Is it aloud to link up songs to youtube in here? Or maybe the music file or files in zip?
