Studio ambience sample

BY ROOFTOP RECORDING

The sound of a space is the second most important piece of the sound of your recording, second only to the sounds you and your instruments produce. My garage recording space is among the largest live rooms in the area. It has a rich, ambient tone great for room mics and natural "space" in your sound.

 

Neon Motel Room

BY THE WHISKEY CHARMERS

Pure Tape Session

BY TYLER RIGDON AND THE SECOND ARRANGEMENT

From Blue Silver Astray EP Tyler Rigdon and the Second Arrangement - used by permission. This was tracked to my Tascam MS16 1" tape machine and mixed the old fashioned way right to my Otari MTR10 1/2 track 1/4". It was mixed through my Allen & Heath GL2400 with all analog gear (but for one outboard digital reverb). For purist approach to vinyl, this is the way to go.
