Just wondering if you've ever written and recorded a more traditional (in a sense) piece of music eg. intro, verses, chourus, bridge ect. with words. Looking forwards to hearing your new stuff.
If you look at the structures of songs of mine like 'Splitting An Atom', 'Rogue Bagel', 'Smoked Glass And Chrome' and 'Neon Tetra' they all have that 'verse, chorus, verse, bridge' structure, albeit with extended sections, and vocals which seem to supply a narrative, even if I haven't a clue what they're singing.
I like that kind of structure and I'll probably always use it on one form or another.
I'd love to produce some really concise three-minute pop classics too - short songs feel like a holiday after wrestling with nine-minute monsters.
Would you recommend the Atom V2 over the Minirig? Not for monitoring, just good old fashioned night disturbance or bbq in the woods...
Thanks and keep up the good work;)
Do you have any favourite compressors to shape individual snare sounds (or examples of compressors you have used for snares which you were even more pleased with than normal?)
And do you often use parallel compression as well as "standard" compression or whatever it's called when shaping an individual snare?
