Getcha Some Productions Podcast Episode 21 A podcast covering all things related to music production: from the first note to the last fan and everything in between. Not your typical “how-to” podcast: For a new listeners, each episode is a live business meeting. We are figuring out how to build a music production company (a media empire) as we go and listeners come along for the ride. Every podcast is a business meeting, every business meeting is a podcast. This podcast is (always) candid and unrehearsed. In this episode we discuss: Would we be considered nascent or inchoate? We’re not really sure between the two or either? Anyway, the point is that we are a new podcast and we should celebrate every 10 episodes as a little anniversary. Or not. Whatever! We start out by talking about some gear that we need to purchase. Dan needs a new iRig interface for his phone because he lost his old one. Then we talk about our own personal experiences using the phone as a facilitator of practicing and recording because of all the different software that’s available nowadays. Dan even talks about the olden days when he used to have to drag around a little drum machine to use to practice. He recounts the time when we were on tour and he brought the drum machine in his luggage and he would plug directly into it And plug in headphones and just rock out quietly by himself. He got all his practice in that way. Indeed, I have done this as well. I’ve brought my iRig and practiced through headphones on many trips. You got to get it in wherever you can nowadays. Dan is, unbelievably, still using his David Eden WT-500 Valve Tech through a 4X12 cabinet. Not the best rig for practicing but an amazing rig for gigging. And that was the rig he used the whole time we were gigging together for many years playing several nights a week. We played both Jazz and Rock through that rig for more than 10 years (beginning over 20 years ago). We play a little tribute to Dan because I had been listening to the guitar nerds podcast for a while and they had mentioned David Eden amplifiers and how they are very transparent amplifiers and I always thought of Dan’s sound as being like a super soulful/nuanced sound. And I didn’t realize that he was getting that sound through his fingers and through his instrument so much and that The amplifier was just reproducing his sound faithfully rather than adding a lot to it like some amplifiers Ken. Or at least that was the commentary on David Eden amplifiers by the guitar nerds folks. There are a lot of theories about why this might be. Perhaps Dan is just a great player (yep). Dan says that it just happened to be a great amp for the way he plays. You just have to know your gear folks. Amazingly, he’s never even taken it in to get serviced or repaired. Ever!! In over 20 years he’s never had to do any work on it or replace any parts or anything. And the thing got a lot of use. Business stuff: This is the podcast where we decide to start promoting our affiliation to reverb. It was inspired by the promotional nature of the holiday season and was recorded around then but it was meant to establish the process by which we will be continually promote our reverb affiliation. We discuss how we should word the actual ads and how often we should advertise. How much Is too much? #MusicProduction #DIYMusician #MusicRecording #MusicTechnique #TheArtistsLife #Creativity #Creative Music #Music #TheHandshake #GetchaSomeGuitar #OliversMusicalGenius #ErosPragma #Mitochondriac
