Jeremy Bell: ScrubBoard

Are you prepared to have your mind blown? Mad Scientist Jeremy Bell contacted me to show me some DIY gear he had made. I randomly get contacted from time to time and usually the products are… well… interesting so I lazily clicked the link to the Youtube video while I was working on something else. Immediately I stopped what I was doing and within 30 seconds of watching more, my jaw was on the floor. The video is below:   So now you’re probably already googling how to buy one. It’sRead More

We made ourself a new friend. Not only does LLane Music have a genius Instagram account (HERE) that is full of droolworthy studios, but they also feature a site where they sell instrumentals. Add on top of that a killer studio themselves and you’ve got a killer combo. If you’re looking for instrumentals, production, or pictures of studios, look no further.

“There are no mixing rock stars.” This sentence resonates an attitude that is slowly falling by the wayside amid a vast landscape of social media and reality TV. It seems that everyone nowadays is performing to whatever crowd of friends, followers, and strangers… trying to be noticed and become the next big thing. Although this attitude is needed in most fields of the entertainment world, being an audio engineer requires a contradictory outlook.

We Got a Facelift

Everything Recording has been around for 3 long years and we’ve had the exact…same…look. Seeing that I don’t really read the site like most of you do, I didn’t realize just how much hell I was putting your eyes through with the old black gloomy background. Not to mention that in 3 years, web technology grows exponentially and that site was the equivalent to Windows 95 and CRT monitors. It was just too basic and if you know me personally, you know I’m not a fan of basic anything. OnRead More

Help Launch A Career

Everything Recording has decided that since the PR Model for most pro audio companies is a little lackluster at times, that we are going to use this page to launch careers. If you have an artist or ARE an artist who I think is cool, I’ll feature your project. This week’s project is one I’ve invested a great deal of time and money into.

Go Do This!

Brett Hestla is a guy. He is a guy who has a vast career in music with some great albums under his belt. He also owns and operates a studio in Florida. All of this sounds like a perfect combination to just up and create a solo project, but what most people that do not run a business fail to realize is that even though you own the studio, time is money and there are bills to pay. So Brett is offering several options and some really sharp headshots toRead More

While we’re on the subject of Waves Plugins, in order to quell the throngs of scared Pro Tools users, Waves has announced their plugins will have AAX Support. This whole Pro Tools 11 debacle has become the Y2k of the recording industry with the masses waiting in angst to see if their favortie go-to plug-in will work when Avid makes the big swap and puts the RTAS format in the dirt.
