So you want to be an engineer...

Currently we're not looking to fill any intern or job positions, but if you would like, please send us a CD of your work that you have produced and engineered and we'll keep it on file; then, if a position arises, we'll be able to keep you in mind.

As far as suggestions go: The first thing I can tell you is to dismiss nothing - listen to ALL kinds of music you can get your grubby little hands on - your CD collection should be WELL in the thousands.

As far as how to "make it in the scene", for us the key was not sleeping for about 4 years. :-) I'm only partially kidding. If you are still in school, take a position at the college radio station and RECORD BANDS - as much as you can . Do a live show and tape it. Listen to the tape, find your mistakes and your successes and adjust accordingly. After that - and most of the time you can't pick them 'till later - work with better musicians; this will give you a chance, in a way, to produce something that sounds great right off the bat, instead of fixing lame-o musicianship problems. Work for free as long as you can and RECORD BANDS (it doesn't matter if it's on a 4-track or live straight to stereo mixes) ; then once you have stuff you are proud of, try to snare a bigger fish (band-wise). And just keep repeating this process.

Remember: Dismiss nothing out of hand. Think. Listen.

Not all bands are the same; Apocalypse Cow, a recording studio that's different.
