Who be they?
Steven Frank Albini - Nirvana In Utereo
Id imagine that david botrill could so it given direction too and flood.
get a grip!
+ remember they remixed it to pop it up before release.
give me some better examples of lo fi then?
or Beat Happening or something.
most lo-fi is low quality because the poor equipment is all they can afford, and is more than often recorded by the artist themselves.
In Utero is polished in comparion.
as how raw it sounds. For example superunkown was a hifi rock record but for me down on the upside was lofi
I'm looking for someone who we can use / afford.
you purposely want a good producer to make your record sound bad?
just record it yourself, it'll definately sound shit if none of you know what you're doing.
and they do sounds shitty and lo-fi, but now we have to strike a balance to keep the people who are funding our release happy, y'see?
a good producer can do whatever you require so i'll give you a list of a few good british ones.
- Matt Hyde (new boy so might be cheaper)
theres another guy whos name i cant remember that works for http://www.myspace.com/milocostudios
also technically alan moulder and flood are british they just dont live here any more.
none of these will be cheap and some might not be available for independant hire.
i will investigate
to track your drums as the studios over there a great and cost pennys by comparison to london rates.
but... i mean... I don't know if he even produced Bee Thousand as much as recorded it and then made it shittier.
live rooms, tape and tubes sound but mixed to modern stands i believe
What you said ^^
rather than lo-fi then?
i'm a bit baffled myself now. I'm talking hiss, pops, fuzz, noise, but still listenable enough to be released. i like the sound of warm and analogue though, so yes.
this thread had completely baffled me.
it was easy to see what he meant, there isnt really a word for people like albini/elverum etc who use really really expensive vintage analog equipment and produce unpolished sounding records so lofi gets used, just a differnt sense of the word
There's lo-fi as in sitting in my bedroom playing into a cassette player, and then there's a whole other world of lo-fi in a studio set up. I'm looking to move between the two without losing any of that aesthetic.
might be worth consideration.
"Influenced by George Martin and Joe Meek, Watson established Toe Rag studios in the early 1990s with the idea of building a complex with predominantly analogue recording equipment. This was due to his dislike of the numerous (digital) studios that had a short life span and "didn't really offer anything unique"."
I like the sound of him, though I reckon with all that Grammy award-winning business, he'd be a bit too expensive.
However he is very picky. He likes garagey retro kind of stuff, so if you don't fit the bill he won't record you.
Try Ed Deegan at Gizzard. He's got a similar setup to Toe Rag (live, valves, tape, old desks and the like) and used to work there for many years. But he's cheaper.
how do you know it's not really baffled me?
just wikipedia lo-fi guys, it stands for 'lo-fidelity', not 'music produced in a certain way to make it sound raw and fuzzy'
yes not lofi in the strictest sense but lofi as it is commonly used especially outside of indie circles.
Were you really baffled, did you really think this thread makes no sense or did you think someone has misused a word in a way that it is commonly misused
is baffling, sorry if you disagree.
they recorded with the guy that owns the place where they practice in nottingham
