iTunes Featuring for Seirenes
We got a nice surprise this morning when our friend sent us a screenshot of “Seirenes” sitting comfortably in the “New and Noteworthy” section of iTunes. There are a lot of good and bad things about the music industry in 2013, but it’s pretty damn cool that we can put out music by ourselves and release it to the world. The direct link to the EP...
Organic recordings in the digital realm →
This is an interesting article (and quick read) from Graham Cochrane over at Recording Revolution. The take home message is that digital recording programs are transparent and don’t make your tracks sound “cold”. Overuse of your DAW (digital audio workstation) is what makes your music robotic. It’s OK to let mistakes through and you don’t have to quantitize...
Making of "Seirenes"
I’m going to do a couple blog posts about the process and recording techniques we used to make “Seirenes”. I’ll try to be descriptive and provide some helpful links to anyone who has interest in recording songs at home and how to get the best sound possible. Hopefully someone can learn from all the trial and error that we’ve already been through and can benefit from...
We have just released two new tracks, “Leaving Her Behind” and “Crashing In The City.” We would love for you to give them a listen and grab a download. Pay whatever you want for them. If you are short on cash, just enter $0.00. If you like the songs and want to throw us a dollar or two…thanks! Listen to Seirenes by The Record.
Altec Lansing 1674c pre-amp project
This is a post about a DIY project I did to turn a 80’s automatic microphone mixer into a 4-channel preamp that The Record can use for recording. We currently use an M-Audio Fast Track Ultra for A/D conversion and it comes stock with 4 preamps. However, it has line in inputs for up to 6 preamps so we were looking to expand (cheaply!) I picked up an Altec 1674c Automatic Microphone Mixer...

Home Recording, Mixing, Mastering Resources
I recently had a conversation with a buddy of mine who asked where I get my information on the home recording process. I have scoured the internet over the past few years since learning to record, but always come back to a few favorites. I find these site the most practical and accurate resources for recording yourself or your band. RECORDING REVOLUTION: http://therecordingrevolution.com ...

I got myself lost when I found you. You said you’d be honest, but you weren’t true. Galilee, part your seas, let me through. For better or worse I’m rewriting history. I’m lost in the woods, you’ve got me baring my teeth. We only get one final last goodbye. You’ve been a bad, bad girl but you know it. This ain’t nothing new, it’s old news to us both. The noise from the street...
