The books, The Recording Manual and The Mixing Manual written by Daniel Dennis, with some of the material written by his late father Bob Daniels, Sr. and compiled by Daniel, current president of the Recording Institute of Detroit are great! Today, we need more of a technical foundation to understand why our mixes are great vs. " Oh man.....what was I thinking?!" I highly recommend you get them from AMAZON.com and STUDY Multi-track recording. And do what you can with Daniel via Zoom and get some OJT at the school. Do this so you can obtain great recordings and have a more successful career.
Good afternoon. I see that a session starts today, July 26. Will you all be having a late week registration? If so, what is the deadline to be at the school. You can inbox me the answer if you want to. Best of success for this Evening session. Thanks!
Ok, WAAAAAY back when, I did a session I did a Sidestick: an older African American woman. Bob claimed she co-wrote “Time Is On My Side”. W***y Mae....? Google gives me nothing.
When all this is over, I’d love to have a reunion get-together for those of us who were at RID throughout the 90s. I think of all of you often. It would be great to catch up.
Details and complete list of bands/artists coming soon. There will be plenty of excellent music, cool prizes, and a few fun surprises. Come out and help us celebrate the life and legacy of Sir Bob!
I was VERY lucky that while attending RID, Bob taught most of my classes. What an amazingly nice, brilliant guy and talented guy. Peace be with you, Bob.
If you take classes at RID, you can learn how to create stuff like this in your spare time. 64 track recording and a 6 cam / 4 location video shoot? No problem! RID gives you the skills you need to adapt to any situation. #GuerrillaVideo
RID Students / Alumni / Friends : If you would like to appear in an upcoming music video without having to put in much effort, here's what you can do : 1. Set your phone cam to 16:9 / 1080p and Auto-everything 2. Go stand on your lawn, preferably at night. Back yards are better than front. 3. Have someone shoot a 5-10 second clip of you (and anyone you can get to join in) acting excited / partying. 4. Bonus points if you're holding a Red Solo cup (or bottle with non-visible logo, or whatever) 5. Tell your phone to "Share the clip via Email" and send it to yankeepetersband @ gmail.com. 3-4 weeks later, you will see a tiny glimpse of yourself on the internet, superstar! :)
