just tried to be clever and load my wave files into one track, and some rips of songs i think have dynamics worthy of plagiarising into another track (so i can compare them), and something awesome and weird has happened and now my tracks are all playing back really slow and low-pitched, so i've just wasted about half an hour skipping back and forth listening to different bits of it.

also, "what goes on" sounds great at the wrong speed.

alistair's diary, 11/1.

i'm thinking to re-export the one or two songs that were already close to clipping in places at slightly lower levels, then load everything into one project, get the peaks at around the right levels in comparison to one another, then use very light compression across most of the dynamic range to squash it together a touch, plus a limiter on like the top couple of decibels just to say hell no to any ridiculous spikes. that way i should hopefully keep my cherished dynamics but still make the quiet beginnings at least come through at a reasonable kind of level. then up the gain of it all so that the peaks are near to the top.

the goal is really just to stop it sounding conspicuously quiet when my girlfriend's mp3 player picks one of our songs between the wannadies and ashlee simpson when she's listening on shuffle, so i think that should do the trick. last night i spent ages on it after that last post though and didn't really get anywhere, so i'm trying to keep my expectations low.

alistair's diary, 13/1.

the compression thing seems to have gone okay. the computer says it's louder and my ears say it still sounds good, so i'm calling that a result. but now all that reading i've done has made me think i can make the mixes sound better with a bit of EQ. so now i'm learning about that.

last album we just recorded a bunch of stuff, pushed the faders into vaguely the right places and called it a day. i guess later i'll go listen to it again and see if it actually sounds bad.

Loud, sloppy, hyperenergetic.  I was going waaaaay too hard and was exhausted towards the end of the set, as my screaming muscles were not yet in shape.  Slept through most of Sunday.

And, we totally will!

i have been listening to songs at varying speeds, too, while retaining the pitch. on some serious ulillillia shit. i don't know where to upload stuff, or i'd upload some short loops of stuff i've been working on this week. i sampled some of macca's vocal bass ('unhh') from she's my baby at 75% speed. i think i'm going to use it.

where can i upload .shitwav under 5 mb?

That was a joke, sadly.  I think I have a couple of Jeb's albums, and a copy of Tri-State Killing Spree's album which I got 2 or 3 years before LPTJ existed.

It's a strong possibility, though I don't specifically recall it.  I went to a loooot of hardcore shows in 2001.

Do you remember where you played?

At the Brycc house. The headlining band cancelled, so there were only two bands on the show, us and a side project that Mike from Three Nails For A False Prophet was doing at the time. One word, name started with a B. Don't remember. Anyway, we set up in the smaller front room instead of in the main room, with each band on opposite sides of the room and the audience in the middle, and we did our sets as a battle, with them playing a song and us playing a song, back and forth. I was at the height of my 'provoke the hardcore kids with alternative sexuality' phase, and was wearing tiny black jean shorts with my legs shaved. That caused this whole ruckus on the Initial Records message board afterward, where some kid was like "what was up with that band with the faggot" and Mike from Three Nails was like "If you've got a problem with queers then you have a problem with both bands because I'm queer too," and everything got really tense and uncomfortable. Someone emailed me a link to the thread after the whole thing was over, and I thought it was hilarious.

Anyway, that was when we were touring for our self-titled first CD, which had two different covers. The one that we sold more copies of was the one with the AC/DC Back In Black parody cover, which was all black and said TS/KS and then Tri State Killing Spree under that in smaller letters. If you have that album, our second one is better. If you have Some Words On The Subject Of Being Alive, though, you didn't get it at the Louisville show we did, because it wasn't out at the time.

Man, BRYCC house, fucking NOSTALGIA.  I saw a lot of bands play in that little room.  They booked a somewhat ludicrous number of shows for that place around 2001-2002 because the rent for that building was about 23409234 dollars a day, and they were constantly scrambling to make it.  I would see three or four shows a week, sometimes.

That was a pretty great place.

"throw open the windows and let the rain come in" is just my kind of album title (if it is indeed the album title and not the band name). i like it!

I'm down to trade if you are!

I have a couple CDs left, but I'm hoping to put together a second edition on cassette next time I get paid (probably not for a long long time). Anybody know a good source for blank tapes in europe?

I was just reminded, I've spun this a few times now--first while driving across New Jersey with the ladyfriend. we both liked it a lot--it's basically what our half-assed barely-existent "band" aspires to sound like, except with, like, talent. and drums.  nice work, sashwap.
