In Chapter 14 of #MajorLabelMastering I discuss the technique of implementing analog tape compression for a “louder, punchier and more saturated sound”. @ikmultimedia’s new #TEAC/Tascam analog tape recorder plug-in set offers a broad array of tape (+tape formulation) saturation and electronic circuit coloration options to similar effect. These (18) preset combinations offer quick results and descriptive options like “Straight Outta Oxide” for Ampex 456 (w/A3340S recorder) tape saturation on drums/beats or “Hi Fidelity Lustre” for BASF SM911 (w/A6100MKII recorder) loudness/frequency profile enhancement on the stereo buss. Impactful coloration options for any recording engineer, producer, or mastering engineer’s palette.

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." ~Martin Luther King Aug. 28th, 1963. On MLK day I'm reminded that as stewards of our society we all must dream, forge and exercise ideal character and do the right things for ourselves and our communities so that progress, equality and harmony prevail.

#tbt with MC
My good friend, excellent recording engineer and onetime roommate #michaelschlesinger (may he rest in peace), had engineered a number of #mariahcarey singles in 2000. He was working with producer #damianyoung (#damizza) who had strong connections at LA radio station #power106. Fortunately for me, Michael insisted that I do the mastering (there is always fierce competition amongst Mastering Engineers to work on name artist releases). Among them I mastered #loverboyremix (the first single off of #glitter) that featured #dabrat, #ludacris, #twentyII and #shawnee and immediately became a #certifiedgold selling #numberonesingle on the #billboardhot100 chart. I remember requesting the digital hardware #weissds-1 multiband compressor/de-esser/limiter for the session and ended up using it as an additional processor in the mastering chain. I still hear the specific low-mid enhancement in the snare drum. Mariah’s signature vocals are legendary, and this track includes her other-worldly #whalevocalizations during the fade out which are truly remarkable.

#tbt with #2Pac:

One day in 1993—as a staff engineer at @paramountrecording in Hollywood— I aligned the Studer A800 2-inch tape machine in studio A to prepare for a sesson with 2Pac. He soon came in and introduced himself. He was very polite, possessing a reserved and gentle demeanor. Then a two-man video crew showed up along with six or eight other rappers that included #richierich, #warreng, and #bigsyke. I transferred a track to the 2” tape and was playing it on the #Urie813 mains when they all began freestyling. The video crew was filming—so this freestyle session is easy to find online (I’m the one with the white t-shirt not freestyling). Then I cycled the track on loop playback as 2Pac jotted down lyrics as the track played. I had set up a #Neumann FET 47 through a mic pre on the SSL console and an 1176 compressor to record the vocal track. He rapped several passes of the verses and hook, which I recorded, and that was it. This track, #lietokickit ended up on his first posthumously released album on #amarurecords, R U Still Down? (Remember Me), selling #4xplatinum…
