I always go gaga whenever I find an artist offering candid thoughts on the various aspects of how they work – especially when they’re communicating directly with normal people on the same level.
As a result, my jaw dropped when I discovered that the master of gorgeously recorded and mixed sound, Tchad Blake himself, had been posting on the GearSlutz.com forum. He responds candidly on various technical details regarding production and mixing, delving into topics that include mixing, recording drums, binaural techniques (for which he is well known) and even what he used to make that funky drum program on Neil Finn‘s Rest of the day off
You can find his posts by doing a search for posts by him: this link should get you the results.
It’s moments like this that I am fond of this Internet thing.
As a side note, it was also interesting to see Richard D. James making some posts about analogue synthesizers around the time of the AFX releases. Worth a read – search for his posts by looking for the word ‘analord’ (the name he posted under)
