Wow... What have we been up to.?.

Jon Roberts and I recorded an Austin legend. Omar and the Howlers... originally from Mississippi, ya'll. Omar has been rocking the Austin music scene since the late 70's.

Omar's vocal is truly a thing to behold. Like the loveliest monster singing your woes away. Add to that a rhythm section of Wes Star (Drums) and Bruce Jones (Bass) a duo that backed up Omar for over 30 years. (Did I mention this is their 27th record)

The session was completed with guest appearances by Casper Rawls (B Bender Guitar), Derek O'Brien (Guitar), Danny Levin (Fiddle/Piano), Nick Connolly (Piano) and Tommy Spurlock (Steel)... and of course much love and respect to Issa Medrano, Omar's partner in crime.

She brought the vibes, they made the music and we put it on wax.

The New Mastering A/B Player…

For the longest time, I have wanted there to be an easy way to let someone hear what I do in the mastering process. Describing such a thing, an effort in futility. But trying to find an audio player that would facilitate a true A/B was impossible.

So we asked one of clients, Nathan Hanners, if he would help us out. Nathan is not only a great songwriter and guitar player, but he is a whiz with the code. After many hours of trial and error, he conquered the challenge.

With this A/B player you can easily hear the difference quality mastering does for an album.

We would also like to thank our web designer Martin Grogono for the great work he has done and still does for us.

Enjoy the Music,
~M~

AMF Mastering Pannel

Last Wednesday night I got to sit down with Jerry Tubb, Dave McNair, Jim Wilson and Mark Hallman to discuss the art of mastering. I don't get to see these guys very often since we are all very busy. Stuart Sullivan moderated the event and added some fine points about how he chooses a mastering engineer.

All in all, it was a great chance to talk to people about how we approach the job and why mastering is still a very important step in making a record.

I want to thank Alex Vallejo, Bruce Hughes and Stuart Sullivan for putting together such a wonderful event.



Thanks,

End of an Era...

How long is an Era anyway? I've been working with Jim Scarborough on his new record for the better part of three years. He is a great friend of the studio and one hell of a salesman for K*T radio. One of Austin's oldest and most respected indie stations.

His album will feature some of Austin's finest session musicians such as Steve Samuel, Chris Maresh, Van Wilks, and Dave Sebree. Then at great expense and days of contract negotiations, we were able to get... me to play on the last song for the record. Thanks to Justin Morris for helping me out with the recording.

This week we had Reggie Watkins in the studio to work on his newest solo venture. Carmello Torres, master of all things percussion, finished out the recordings with his usual flair. The record features many A list players and should be available later this year.

Today Bruce Hughes and I mixed 5 songs for an upcoming Johnny Nicholas video release. Recorded at the Saxon Pub by Bill Johnson, the tracks include: "Don't Say I Never Told You So", "Hell Bent" and "Roads on Fire".

Hell Bent is Johnny's new band. Consisting of Bruce Hughes on Bass, John Chipman on Drums, Scrappy Jud Newcomb on Guitar, and Cindy Cashdollar on Steel and Slide Guitar. Add Johnny's velvet voice over that and you have yourself an occasion. They can be seen most Wednesdays at the Saxon Pub for their six o'clock happy hour.
