Happy Cinco De Mayo! -


It’s official…we are going to be remodeling very soon. There will be an all-over make-over of the live room and minor improvements in the control room. I won’t go into details, but I’ll just say things will look and sound different, including the drum/vocal booth being moved. We have no specific date set for the remodel, but will of course let you know when we set the schedule. And of course we’ll invite everyone over when it’s all done.

And for this month’s poll:

What’s your definition of “making it”?
-Bar shows on the weekend
-Selling almost 1000 CDs
-Signed to an indie label
-Signed to a major label
-Owning a gold plated toothbrush

Remember to visit our homepage to cast your vote!

The results from last month’s poll are in. The questions: “What type of atmosphere do you prefer for recording?” and “What lighting do you prefer?” The results came back inconclusive, but it does seem that people would prefer the lighting to be moody and atmospheric.


We now own a TC-Helion Voiceworks. This piece of outboard gear will auto-tune your vocals on the spot as well as add harmonies and doubles. It’s great if you want to add a full chorus behind your vocals without performing a zillion times. You can get sounds ranging from a gospel choir to a barbershop quartet and everything or nothing in between.


Bluebottle has finished tracking for their album “Bet it all on Red” due out at the end of July. They brought in Matt Irie from the Cougars to belt out a guest vocal appearance for one song. Be sure to check out Bluebottle’s website at www.blue-bottle.net for more info.

Greg Boerner has been in working on songs for his upcoming album. He’s also busy performing all over the place, playing venues all the way to Minnesota. Find out when he’s playing near you at www.gregboerner.com.

Gary Landess is finishing up songs for his album. He recently worked on his song “Illinois Cowboy,” a very get-a-long, cowboy-ish sounding tune.

that bomb did not explode but a bull wandered over and swallowed
the bomb -- can you provide a single word to describe the scene?
A bomb in a bull.
