It’s my birthday on this#microphonemonday so I’m being a little lazy. Yeah, I just featured a 74B, but this new one in my collection is a factory color I’ve never seen before! Recently refreshed with a new ribbon, cable, and motor mounts and given a nice polish over at Enak. I love 74B mics, and RCA ribbons in general, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen an RCA mic that wasn’t black or “tv grey”.

It’s lovely! Have a listen and brighten your day!

Happy and Memorial Day. Today we have the entire .berlin studio collection together. Spanning 90 years of condenser microphones, in this collection are a pair of M94s, a pair of M49s, a pair of TLM193s, a U47, U67, KM86, KM184, KM100, and two 1932 CMV-3 mics that were branded Siemens and Telefunken, but were both made by Georg Neumann Berlin and engraved with that name on the back, so they definitely count! We’ve featured most of these before except the KM184 (utility cardioid condenser, you know it, it’s nice) and the KM100, which is a pretty exceptional small diaphragm mic with a changeable capsule favored by classical recordists, and the TLM193, which was my first Neumann mic when I was just building the studio. The 193s became my number one mic for horns, vocals, drum overheads, acoustic guitar and pretty much every other thing I could put them on. They don’t get as much use since the locker expanded to include so many classics, but they’re still some of the greatest sounding medium diaphragm condensers out there.

“I Was Convinced That I Might Die”: Lance Keltner Talks New Album After Brush with Death

Nice write up in Guitar World about the new Lance Keltner album! Lance pitted me against Andy Johns’ mixes of some of the songs, made me sweat a little. I feel like my new versions did justice though. Proud of this big rock record!

Following his near-death battle with Covid last year, the Texas guitarist’s latest LP – 'Lance Keltner & Nuevo Retro' – marks a personal and creative rebirth.

Another brilliant release that was a long time coming, Kady Rain’s debut full length is full of bangers, including a couple that were mixed, partially tracked and co-produced at ICF. Three full length, amazing albums in a single day! 🤯🥰

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for….my debut album is OUT NOW!!!! Available everywhere!!! Listen and let me know what your favorite song is!!! This album is almost 8 years in the making and I can’t believe it’s finally out for the world to hear, I’m so excited! There’s pop bops, a pop punk and rock song, a ballad, a hyperpop remix with , and even a folk/country song and a full acoustic track, which I’ve never done before! I wanted this album to showcase that “pop music” isn’t limited to just one genre, and an artist shouldn’t be limited to just one sound, and I’m so excited for the world to hear it! Link below to listen to the album! 🌈✨💕🎶🦋🎸🤘

This pic is for the song Fruity that’s on the album, it’s a song about being h*rny and bisexual!!! I think it fits the imagery, do you? 😜

This brand new Chrystabell video is available on American Songwriter’s site today, and it’s one of my favorite goosebump raising tracks on the album. This is one of the best blends of clean and driven vocals I’ve wrangled in a mix. The video is brilliant as well! Have a look and listen!
Yay Matt Parmenter and Ice Cream Factory Studio!
For today’s I’m shining a light on the incomparable Jon Sanchez. Last year Jon came into Ice Cream Factory Studio and cut ALL the guitars for (the musical episode of Skeleton Crew) in about 8 hours. A total pro, the definition of an old soul, and a big beautiful ♥️. I am so grateful for his talents and insight. The magic he gifted those tracks with is… well, listen for yourself. https://Nakia.me/duelingpianos1

Stoked to get back into Ice Cream Factory Studio and tie a cute bow around some almost-finished songs:)

Live from Ice Cream Factory Studio in March, 2020. This song is called Underwater. It's a note about drowning in the internet and our screens, and that's fine, we just need to remember to come up for air sometimes.

Matt Parmenter of Ice Cream Factory Studios mixed the audio, Gibson filmed the moving shot, and Xine worked the switcher for the livestream we broadcast to benefit Banding Together ATX.

The last show I played before the pandemic began was my annual birthday party at The Saxon Pub.
It was the first time my new band played a show. Our next show set at Hill Country Galleria had to be canceled of course. But thanks to some awesome fans who shot video, Richard @ Saxon for the board recording, and a mix by Matt Parmenter @ Ice Cream Factory Studio, Saturday night we will be streaming some of the songs from that show and a brand new one on Austin City Limits Radio! Y’all tune in!
