I've been posting here on and off lately, saw this thread now and decided it's time to properly introduce myself.
Name: Hannes Larsson
Location: Uppsala/Stockholm, Sweden
Own band: Just restarting, have nothing to show at the moment
Occupation: Freelancing sound engineer (doing post production, live and the occasional recording/mixing, but I'd like to do more mixing)
Musical tastes: Postrock, post-metal, some other metal, progressive rock from the 70's and pop (as in hits, britney spears etc).
Favourite band: I don't know.. Cult of Luna maybe.
Favourite album: Don't know here either, maybe ( ) by Sigur Rós, Crack the Skye by Mastodon, Eternal Kingdom by Cult of Luna or maybe even Fas by Deathspell Omega. Or something else.
Production experience: Mostly from the school where I did my sound engineering studies, most of it being pop/rock, but some hardcore bands aswell.
Goal: Recording and mixing the music I love for a living. At least doing it a lot would be fun.
Gear: As we speak: Fireface 800, M-audio Octane preamps, Yamaha MSP5, Audio Technica ATH-M50, Pro Tools, a simple mic stash that lets me record drums, SM7 as my main vocal mic, and not that much more. Works for me at the moment.

I've been here a couple years but never even noticed this thread. I lurked for quite a while and have been trying to post more lately.
Location: McHenry, IL (about 1.5h NW of Chicago)
Own band: Played drums for local band Wings of Severance for a while. Not currently playing with anyone.
Occupation: Day Job - Project Engineer for a cutting tool manufacturer
Musical tastes: Anything with a solid backbeat and a good groove. I used to listen strictly to metal, but I've branched out a bit as I've gotten older. But I still have a soft spot for Pantera, old In Flames, and Metallica.
Favourite album: Make Yourself by Incubus
Production experience: Started tinkering in 2008, and I still tinker now. I do about 6-10 projects a year, and try to learn something new each time.
Goal: As with all of us, I would love to make a living doing this one day. My wife supports it, and allows me to put whatever money I make recording back into gear. Maybe one day it'll work out, maybe it won't. But thats why I went to college and got a degree.
Gear: Intel i7 2700k, 8gb Ram, Vista Ultimate 64bit, Pro Tools 8, Digi 003+, Digimax D8, and some other odds and ends.

Own Band:Catfish of the Learning Eggplant
Occupation: Maintenance at local Post Office, in my free time i record some local bands for free, since alll\ the studios around here charge like $190/hr rates for SHIT recordings...so i one upped them with *slighlty better quality home recordings for FREE
Musical Tastes: Metal, Alternative, Sublime (they should be their own genre), and Classical (Bach, Mozart etc.)
Favorite Band: your all gonna hate me for this, even though my metalcore phase has LONG passed i still gotta say Parkway Drive on that
Favorite Album: Deep Blue
Favorite Producer(s): Joe barresi, Adam D, and whoever it was that produced the Celtic Frost Monotheist Album (loved its sound to death)
Production Experience: About 4 months lol, only have 12 full mixes under my belt, and only 2 full mixes that are my original material
And other artists such as: none you will probably ever hear of
Goal: make free recordings that outshine the severely overpriced local studios around here (DONE! lol)
Production Gear : Goodwill Monitors (Bose reflection monitors) and M-audio BX8's, Mixcraft 6, Lepou Amp Sims, guitarhack IR's, and a rocksmith xbox 360 cable (dont knock it till u tried it, heres a mix with it:http://soundcloud.com/schecter4life/tsocr-final)(tis a ROUGH MIX, not a final mix, NO post eq, NO compression, NO noise gate....straight up raw tones on EVREYTHING, th bass wasnt even impulsed lol) i know the bass tone flatout SUCKS!, i was stuck with a quier jazz bas for tracking ) And unforunately, do to complete lack of necessary gear AND skills, i am using sampled drums from ezdrummer (cant play drums for shit, and cant afford a decent kit atm lol, nor can i afford the necessary mics or interfaces lol
heres one with the SAME setup for those who enjoy LES generi-core sounding metal xD http://soundcloud.com/schecter4life/waxing-and-waning
both those are mine, the two local acts i recorded forbade me from uploading or linking any of their material for fear of people stealing it (i dont understand why, they can prove they are the originals creators of the work, and it would just be free publicity for them AND me lol) i really wish they would let me, i put FAR more work into theirs then i put into mine....xD but oh well, all i can say is their name is Massive Butter, and it would appear they have yet to make a facebook or even a youtube account, so they will probably never go anywhere anyway xD *rolls eyes
I'm not a racist, i hate everyone equally
