WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT....
Records is dedicated to creating recordings that represent an ultimate
picture of the artist's musical vision, and to raise the standards
overall in the music industry.
say, 15 or so years ago and before, when people had to be able to
play their instruments to be considered talented? Nothing beats
the real thing.
the idea of here is to bring musicians together, to market their
recordings through a common outlet, and to bring traffic to each
other by association with a mark of quality.
is a necessary thing in any business, but often in the record industry,
marketing seems to preside over the art itself, selling an image
here at Mix-O-Rama believe that if the product is good to begin
with, a large part of the marketing takes care of itself.
quality recording of a quality performance need only be heard by
and shown to people -on whatever scale- and people will respond
pitch correction, etc.- all the artists must actually do the real
thing. we are musicians here, and this is an outlet for us to express
that- for both your and our mutual enjoyment. SO PLEASE ENJOY, its
the real thing, no compromises.
DOES have national distribution with Burnside,
although not all the titles are availible thru this venue. Often
times you can get 'em thru the artists website, which is how they
are availible here.
name is like an imprint used for brand recognition, or as a mark
of Quality. Mix-O-Rama is all about honestly performed music, good
recordings, and helping artists network to the public in whatever
feel the public can ultimately decide what's cool, we're just here
to point them in this direction....
idea is considered.
A commentary by producer Eldridge Goins:
Where does the recording happen?
"I have found that the
artist being able to be laid back is most important: to the performance,
as well as productivity. So, wherever a balance between relaxation
and sound quality can be achieved, that's how and where I prefer
"So, actually, it happens in
lots of places....tracking and mixing are two very different things!
We made one record in a cool hotel in Austin, the San Jose... Several
houses... any studio, but we usually just cut it on our gear, because
we really are used to it, and it really cuts down on overhead. We
like our gear! Not that we're afraid to rent or borrow anything..."
"One of the studios- Seven Trees
Studio- is out near Bastrop, Texas, in the piney woods. My friend
Tree Leom and I have been partners since 1994, when we engineered
together at Music World Studio Productions in Dallas. We have gear
that we like, and we definitely have our own ways of using it !"
"But, I have long been
a practioner of 'guerilla recording'. That is to say, location recording
anytime, anywhere, using unusual circumstances to our advantage.
Mostly lately, I have been laying rhythm tracks to hi-res digital,
getting them perfect on the computer. Then, I use the 24 track deck
and JFET pre's to color the sound of the computer recording. This
just adds life and a classic tone to everything."
"So, the physical studio
building is usually used as a place for post production, and the
tracks can be cut anywhere from any iso booth to someone's tool
shed. Then, it gets sent out to the mastering studio, usually Jim
Wilson (at Yes Mastering)- he knows how i personally mix, and the
results are consistent and sound great. You have to check him out!"
