    Hi everybody,

    since I have joined this Forum (community I should say), I have seen a number of recurrent persons here kindly giving advices and providing their help. And I realised that we don't know much about each other, so I'm creating this thread to help people introduce themselves and stuff... This could be cool I guess, so here I'm starting.

    Name: Brett
    Location: South of France
    Age: 35
    Own Band: KALISIA (Guitar, Vocals, Programming, Producer)
    Occupation: Metal Producer, I used to be a graphic designer but I did quit it to work on my album. This is my studio website : Tower Studio and this my band website : KALISIA
    Musical Tastes: Metal (almost all types of metal), Progressive Rock, Movies Soundtrack, sometimes Pop Rock.
    Favorite Band: Dream Theater I guess... but the old one (I&W, Awake & SFAM).
    Favorite Album: Images & Words (Dream Theater)
    Favorite Producer: Needless to say, Andy rules !!!
    Production Experience: Getting bigger and bigger: albums, some demos, recording, mixing and mastering of French and International bands signed and unsigned, and occasionally doing FOH. I have worked with/for the following bands:
    Cynic (USA), Devin Townsend Project (CAN), Sacred Reich (USA), Between The Buried And Me (USA), Ram-Zet (NO), Kalisia (FR), To-Mera (UK/HU), Freak Kitchen (SW), Xerath (UK), Imperial Vengeance (UK), Forest Stream (RU), Malmonde (FR), Whyzdom (FR), Agora (MX), Theodore Ziras (GR), Hysteria (FR), Hand of God (GR), Fairlight (FR), Pulse (FR), Bomb Scare Crew (FR), Khynn (FR), The Arkitecht (MX), Veils of Perception (FR), Christophe Godin's Metal Kartoon (FR), Cromonic (SW), Auspex (FR), Six Feet Or Above Ground (IRE), Akphaezya (FR), Hypno5e (FR), Still Square (FR), Cigue (FR)...
    And other artists such as: Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon), Angela Gossow (Arch Enemy), Dave Mustaine (Megadeth), Ludovic Loez (SUP), Andy Sneap, etc...
    Goal: Getting better and better at what I do.
    Production Gear : Too much to write here, check out the "Equipment" section in my website.

    That's all for me, I hope you'll like the idea and share your résumé with us.

    Name : Volcane (Jon)
    Location : South West UK
    Age : 31 (Doh!)
    Own Band : Mercury Rain (Bass, Synths, Producer)
    Occupation : IT analyst. Recording our second album. I would love to quit my 9~5 but I can't afford it (too many creaature comforts to pay for)...
    Musical Tastes : Metal (mainly Power/heavy/Gothic), Movie Soundtracks, anything different - some folk, Bjork, Spear of Destiny, Rush. Depends on how I'm feeling.
    Favorite Band : Blind Guardian (hate the production on ANATO)
    Favorite Album : Broadsword & the Beast (Jethro Tull) - even though it sounds like it was recorded with the mics wrapped in blankets...
    Favorite Producer : Andy S. The Finnvox chaps are cool as well.
    Production Experience : Recorded the first Mercury Rain EP and then our first album - neither of which sound particulary good now. In the process of recording our new disc after learning a lot from forums like this, the web, and listening carefully at how things are put together. Much happier with my own ability/judgement now, and not afraid to try new things.
    Goal : If I can't become a rock star with my band (natch), I'd like to work in metal somewhere - maybe promotion, management, graphic design, web design. Not sure if I could do the studio thing, as I couldn't work with bands I didn't like...
    Production Gear : Pentium IV 2.4GHz computer, with an MAudio Delta 1010 and 410. 3 mics : Shure SM-57 and Rode NTK and NT1. Behringer DDX3216 digital desk and Spirit Absolute Zero monitors. Roland XV5050 synth module & Behringer Bass Vamp Pro
    Software : I work on Cakewalk Sonar for the recording & mixing and I'm sending the new disc to Finnvox to be mastered - I don't trust myself not to mess it up. The plugins I like/use the most are Waves Rvox, Rchannel, Rverb, Raxx, TC Native DeX.
    General: I've found that the less is more' approach is working for me more these days. On the guitar tracks I just use the Raxx compressor and the EQ on the desk. No need for reverbs/stereo enhancers/tube warmth plugins that I used to etc. Good sound in, compression and EQ that's yer lot ! Recording a choir at the moment for the new CD, and that's proving fun.

    Jesus, what would I give for these... :erk:
    Q10 and HR824 are on the top of my wishlist, among a few other things.


    Name : Darko
    Location : Split, Croatia (in the center of our Adriatic coast)
    Age : 26
    Own Band : Stimulans, Djubrivo, Firestorm (Guitar, Vocals, Producer)
    Occupation : Recording my album and for others (unemployed if you like...), in fact an unfinished student
    Musical Tastes : Metal (almost all types, but I prefer thrash and heavy), 70s Rock, 80s pop
    Favorite Band and Album: too many to narrow the choice
    Favorite Producer : Andy Sneap, Colin Richardson, Martin Birch, Bob Rock, Jim Morris, Mark Reale and Paul Orofino (last Riot record sounds awesome!)
    Production Experience : I recorded a few demos for a few local bands, and am preparing to record my band's first album. Also, some of my recordings were released, but here the metal production standards are relatively low, so I don't get carried away by this. :) Not that it sounds so bad, considering the equipment...
    Goal : I'd like to work in a metal oriented studio (this is impossible here) and later create my own studio where I could record whatever I like
    Production Gear : AMD Duron 900MHz, 512MB SDRAM, SB Live! crap, Mackie 1402VLZ mixer, Rode NT3, Infinity Alpha 20 hi-fi speakers thru Cambridge Audio amp. Since I work in my room, I record guitars mainly DI'd (distorted by Marshall ShredMaster) and then I apply an amp sim of some sort (mostly SimulAnalog JCM900 or Steinberg Warp)
    Softwares : I still work in Cubase VST32 5.1r1 and plan on converting to Cubase SX 2 for the recording and the mixing. For the mastering I use Wavelab, I really dig its master section. Of VSTi, I mainly use NI Battery for drumsamples and Halion for other samples. I use almost all plugins I can lay my hands on, mostly Waves. Need I say it's warez all the way? :D
    Unfortunately, I can't afford myself a better equipment, let alone a plugin...
    I'm driven by a great enthusiasm and I really regret that I can't gain experience in a decent studio.
