Temples To Telescopes

0

Temples To Telescopes <- Right Click To Save. This track started one night after I had just finished up jamming on my acoustic guitar using my Timeline Delay pedal. I was putting things away, and realized I had left the feedback cranked up, and the electrical noise from the guitar pickups started to feedback making this cool sound wash. I fired …

The -6dB Rule

1

Been seeing a lot of new producers asking why they should keep their DAW master meters around -6dBFS (or -3dBFS, -4dBFS, etc). While a lot of mastering engineers are the ones asking for mixdowns this way, there seems to be some confusion that this is something that is needed for mastering.

The Practice Guilt

1

Last November I finally achieved a dream of mine by buying a really nice acoustic guitar.

My Top Ten iOS Apps

0

Since one of the more frequent questions I get asked is for iOS music app recommendations, I figured it was time to list my favorites as of Summer 2014. I’m not saying that these are the “best” iOS apps out there, just that these are the ones I find myself reach for again and again. With that, and in no …

The Anniversary Wrap Up

0

Well, I thought it might be a crazy idea I’d come to regret, but my decision to offer 24 hours of free mastering as part of my Studio’s 5 year anniversary ended up being a real success.  I was able to meet a lot of new producers, and quite a few former clients I hadn’t heard from in a couple …

5 Years & Free Mastering

0

It’s truly hard for me to believe, but today marks the 5 year anniversary since I started running Inner Portal Studio full-time.  It’s been quite a journey so far, and I couldn’t have done it without all the support and trust of the hundreds of musicians I’ve worked with in that time.  As a way of saying thanks and giving …
