Vocal mic comparison: Shure SM57 stands up pretty well

Interesting mic shoot out
Vocal Mic Shoot-out (For Best Results, Listen in Highest Quality)

(Neumann U87ai & U89i, Rode K2, Blue Blueberry, ADK Vienna au12, Audio-Technica 4050 & 4040, Shure sm57)

Music by: Israel and NewBreed "Jesus at The Center"

Each Channel has no EQ, and was clipped gained in PT10 to get the same level. The Tube-Tech CL1B Plugin was put on each channel in addition toa touch of Reverb (R-Verb) as well. Each Mic was recorded At Berklee College of Music (Studio C) and was ran through the Neve 1073 Mic Pre and The A/D DigiDesign 192.

Of course the SM57 has the same capsule type as a SM58 so it should do ok.

Commune summer event in Porthcawl, Wales


Facebook Event Page

Confirmed so far: the infamous S.E.X., Nick WardBadlands, Rebecca Hurn, Peter Morgan(electronica), Jordan Marks, and more to follow!
From the mellow acoustics of up-and-coming Porthcawl-local, Rebecca Hurn, and the new-wave-inspired Nick Ward, the evening is sure to inspire, intrigue and entertain. Bridgend’s most exciting rock band, S.E.X., will headline; keeping the flame of 80’s glam alive right here in Porthcawl. More acts to be confirmed.

S.E.X.’s front man, Phil Jones, is happy to support the cause, but also joked, “it’s difficult fronting a glam-rock band, especially when, I, the band’s most senior member [by 30 years], is the only slightly glamorous one”. 
In the meantime, here’s a draft of the poster for the Commune Summer Event 2013…
Please join the events page on facebook it helps us guage the numbers attending.
Tickets are £5 in advance from SUSSED (£7 on door).

Free when you update to 9.0.4 using either the built in updater or download from your account page on Ableton. The new skin is called Disco.

A high contrast dark skin like this would be good in a low light gig situation. More on Ableton Live at Molebomb

An Opera in Baghdad, Dylan Thomas Centre, April 11th 2013


An Opera in Baghdad, Dylan Thomas Centre, April 11th 2013
Originally uploaded by Mooganic.

Robert Minhinnick, Tracy Evans, music by Peter Morgan - ‘An Opera in Baghdad’ is a long poem, published in Minhinnick’s recent ‘New Selected Poems’ (Carcanet). It concerns a visit he made to Iraq in 1997, between the first and second Gulf Wars.

“This ‘opera’ is a lively and very musical dramatic poem”, says Robert Minhinnick. “It commemorates some of the extraordinary people I met on the visit.

“Entering and leaving Iraq meant arduous journeys across implacable desert. The experience has had a major effect on my writing, especially the visit to a deserted Babylon”.
