skates sharpened and repaired: hardware
The main recording deck for skates sharpened and repaired is a
TASCAM Portastudio 424mkII. Mixing is done generally to a mini-disc,
which is then digitally-transferred to a CDR, and ripped from CDR
into .wav format. I'm using Shure SM58betas and SM57s. I also recently
purchased a stereo condenser mic for my
mini-disc player so that I can do some live, "ambient" recordings. The
music is recorded and compressed using tools available with the Debian
GNU/Linux operating system.
Instruments used or slated to be used: Washburn 6-string D12, Yamaha
12-string (stage model), Fender Rhodes "Seventy-Three", various effects pedals, Hammond j-400
organ, Alvarez Mandolin, Delta Banjo, Steinway grand pianos, an unidentified drum
set, and some cheap Hohner harmonicas. p.a. peterson
likes d'addario strings, but he's not sponsored and so he hasn't changed
his strings in a long, long time.
