We played well, there we no guests and we had a fresh showered MiniT in for a nice MiniT set.  I didn't tape this week and had to rush out of the jam but Rich got a two track with direct MiniT vocals.  Hopefully that worked out for him.  It was good to see Andy there after his harrowing experience with the Kenilworth Police on Saturday night.   Lots of good stuff.   Kevin double amplified his bass using both the bass amp and the PA.  It sounded pretty darn good. We did  get a working Death Don't Have No Mercy that was good.  As usual the so called death march of Love Has No Pride was sweet.  It's funny death has no mercy and love has no pride.  Even the Terrapin, which Dave sang was pretty darn good.  A fun night for us all, look forward to next Monday. 

For reference this was the recording setup. 

  1. Rich recorded into his Tascam CD Burner using Channel for For terez Direct and Channel 2 for the Overhead Mic.  I took the week off from taping.

Till next Monday again at Smash Studios R again when we have a full MiniT session again.

It was only after reading TheGind's review, that I was able to confirm that I was not hallucinating last nite. I have been struggling for the past month or so, with the horrendous bass amp in Studio R and was resigned to sounding bad. Until last nite when TheGind brilliantly suggested that I plug into the PA. The PA alone did not improve my sound appreciably, so I (also TheGind's suggestion) bi-amped using the crappy Trace Elliot amp. This was my dream set-up come true. Bi-amping has historically been my most successful configuration. @ Gansvoort Street it was Dennis's Ampeg / Roland 120, @ WWI it was my big Yamaha / little tye-dye, now it's Trace Elliot / PA. I am happy.

MiniT rocks. Deadstein rolls.

By the way, I heard from TefillinKen today and he is coming to NYC the week of 2.17. Hopefully we can get a freaky farbrengen going.

The scaled down 2 channel direct to CD recording set-up yielded a good quality recording for reference purposes. Therese's vocals came out clean in one channel and the room mic hanging from the ceiling got what the room sounded like on the other channel. This demonstrated that the vocals are not loud enough in the room, a problem for which we've not yet come up with a solution.

I spot checked a couple of songs just to see how we were doing. On Love Has No Pride, the second part of the second verse right on through the break was right on the money. I haven't heard it yet, but I remember the maiden voyage of Feel Like A Stranger working out surprizingly well (discounting the ending). It may have also been the first time in history that Feel Like A Stranger was sung by an actual maiden.

Though it seemed clever from a poetic standpoint, it was to my great chagrin after I clicked on the "submit comments" button and consulted a dictionary, that I realized that "actual maiden" would not be a technically correct characterization. I beg your collective pardon.

Hey guys...yeah, it's strange how that board works not so easy to get the vocal I'd like...trying not to push my voice ...but hear myself at the same time. Especially with the new tunes...guess it's better if I can't hear myself too clearly...but y'all are gracious and patient as always. It's such a pleasure to work with you guys...I finally understand the die-hard dedication you have to show up for the jam every week. I always look forward to it. ..a lot. Because I was coming from the gym ("the freshly showered Therese"), and wasn't around for the set-up, I totally missed the story behind Trister and the Kenilworth police...hope it didn't have anything to do with Luke. Have a good trip, Trister. See everyone else on Monday night. I'll be warmed up, but not "freshly showered". Heads up.
