Laugh Track

Time to give Lance a short break and see how our budding recording stars are doing.

Thank you to everyone who came out for Super Art Fest and who checked us out online. The stream was really wonky the entire time. If we do more streams like this, we’re going to have to come up with a more stable solution.

Thanks, too, to the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. They’re fighting the good fight and I’m glad we got the chance to join the fight. I’d love it if this becomes an annual thing.

    Oh now that we’re back to beatboxing, I have a reply to it.
    Birds. Beatboxing birds.

    The quality is a little bad, but you get the idea.
    Also, I remembered this guy, he’s a Japanese beatboxer, and some call him the best ever. He goes by Hikakin, I couldn’t find his real name.
    He even recreated Super Mario with his skills.

    Okay, so is that mic supposed to be an AKG 414 or… might be a Rode NT1A? Too small to be a Neumann U87. Not to mention that just LEAVING a U87 sitting in a booth unattended would probably make any engineer worth a damn freak right the fuck out.

    No, seriously, that’s a 414.

    I’ve been working with a buddy of mine on his album, and we’ve discovered that taping a PZM microphone to the glass in the studio – while messy – picks up AWESOME room waves and reflections, especially low end. While I know they didn’t set it up so well here, that sort of thing would probably be pretty good for beatboxing.

    um… clearly one of us is an audio engineer and by one of us I mean you. ;)

    Jumping back and forth between the two situations is a bit jarring, considering the contents.
