I've been hanging around enjoying this form for a while now, posting sporadically, and getting some excellent advise from Remoteness and crew.
I recently moved back to the Tri-State area after 5 years working on staff at a big studio in DC...put together my remote rig and started my new company. Since I just did my first live gig with the new gear, I guess I'm official now and should introduce myself.

Name:Gordon Davies

Specialty: 24 track live and location recording, studio recording & mixing, etc.

Hey Michael-

I'll jump on the bandwagon behind you.

I haven't really posted much on GS, but have read it for a long time. Some of the guys know me here already from Recording.org and some of those guys hate my guts...but I'm okay with that.

Anyway, I'd list off my gear, but since I buy and sell all the time, my list changes as often as my underwear (sometimes more often).

My favorites at this moment in time:
Royer SF 12
Schoeps CMC6 (MK2, MK4, MK21)
RME FireFace 800 (love it!)

I pretty much do live orchestral, choral, wind ensemble and jazz, though I will do the occassional rock/country as well (if I dig the music.) I do have a small studio in the home, but prefer not to use it unless for friends or really good groups. The studio is about 3200 cubic feet (20x24x8) and is entirely floating.

While I do make a decent "living" off of recording, my day job is as an engineer/scientist for the government and have worked in the Pentagon since 2000. I currently support the Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate in the Communications Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center out of New Jersey, but live in Northern Virginia.

As for where I get the gigs - where ever I can. I'll travel long distances to record and like to work with colleges, semi-pro or "farm-league" orchestras as much or more than the big leagues. (Too many egos to deal with in the bigger orchestras!)

Right now, I'm totally into new chamber music- stuff that hasn't been recorded yet - 21st century, neo-romantic chamber.

Anyway...cheers all!

I've been lurking here periodically for some time - finally registered.

Name: Michael DeMark
Occupation: Technical Director, 89.3 The Current, Minnesota Public Radio
Home: Saint Paul, MN

I am the primary recording engineer for The Current, which is a three-year-old alternative rock station owned by Minnesota Public Radio. We broadcast in the Twin Cities, Rochester, MN, and of course, the Internet.

The Current is one of a handful of public stations around the country that are playing alternative / indie rock and pop music (not counting college stations). The station has a very strong commitment to live performance - we bring an average of about 4 - 6 acts per week into our studios to play live on the radio. If I may namedrop a bit, in just the past few months I've been fortunate to record The New Pornographers, Tori Amos, Spoon, They Might Be Giants, Rilo Kiley, Art Brut, Of Montreal, Dan Wilson, The Cinematic Orchestra, The National, Suzanne Vega, Leo Kottke, John Gorka, Keb Mo, Fiery Furnaces and many others.

Our studios are pretty amazing - Studio M (officially the Maud Moon Weyerhauser Studio) is 45 ft. x 36 ft. with a 25 ft. ceiling. The console is a new (last year) Neve 88R. Studio P is a smaller (22' x 20' x 9') room with an API Legacy console. We also own the Fitzgerald Theater, a 1000-seat house that is the home base of A Prairie Home Companion.

Before coming to MPR, I worked at WNYC, New York and Wisconsin Public Radio in Madison. I've engineered thousands of remote recordings / broadcasts of acoustic music (classical, jazz, folk, world), but these days I'm doing primarily studio recordings / broadcasts of rock & roll, which is just fine with me. Ninety-five percent of the music I've mixed over the years has been straight to 2-track, with no multitrack safety net involved.

Thanks to Steve and everyone on this board for sharing their experience and opinions.

I finally have a few moments to input this...

Name: Al Rude

Rank: Very...

Position: Producer/engineer/chief cook and bottle washer

Specialty: Capturing lightning in a bottle. I don't really have a specialty when it comes to audio. I'm classically trained but I'll record anything from Bach to Rock. I've always liked the challenge of getting a live performance "on the fly." Expertise in X-Y, M-S & Blumlein stereo mic techniques along with an ever-growing collection of stereo mics...

Experience: 35 years+ in the broadcast and recording fields, including chief engineer for several FM stations, a TV station and chief tech/engineer/consultant for several major studios. Over the years I have done live broadcasts, studio recordings, audio for television, on-air personality, FOH, live recordings, lots of location recording, etc. I spent most of my earlier years in the Detroit area and have lived in south Florida since the turn of the century. I was mentored in my early years by many of the Motown engineers and have maintained their "whatever works" attitude when it comes to audio.

Currently: Running a live capture audio service for select clientele.

Favorite quotes: “Music is a life sentence.” – Kenny Parker; “It’s a poor workman that blames his tools” – Unknown; “If you ‘ain’t havin’ fun, you ain’t makin’ music” – Bob Clairmountan; “Necesitity is a motherf&#@%$!” - various Motown engineers

ultimate lifetime goal is to track a live concert recording 96 tracks @ 96k with tasty outboard and mixed in 5.1 for dvd release... similar to the eagles farewell tour dvd.
actually who knows what format we'll be working in by the time i get to do this?!

also mix front of house, monitors (wedges & iem) & broadcast.
love a bit of lighting directing for concerts, working on short films and being involved in multi-camera concert shoots.

name: D. Smith

location: just slightly north of Los Angeles

I am a recycled musician who returned to playing ten years ago after a twenty year hiatus . Back in the day (can you say analog?) I was around some of the Southern Soul recording studios. I play and record with a 5 piece Blues band performing mostly original music. We are now recording our 4th CD in a good studio on Pro Tools HD. As preparation for this last CD I began recording our rehearsals on a (slightly) used Yamaha AW4416 DAW that I bought for $700. It was a steep learning curve for an analog dinosaur but I drew up a flow chart relating the "layers" of the AW to an analog console that helped me to understand its functions and work flow. I had some pretty good results recording 8 discreet (albeit with a lot of bleed) tracks of the band and mixing CD's so the members could review their performances and arrangement.

I would like to use my AW and mics to record live performances at the local community college of jazz bands and instrumental orchestras with an eye to providing (for pay to support my gear habit) recital recordings when I acquire sufficient experience.

I realize location recording and acoustic music is far different from experience with studio recording and close mic'ed instruments. It is to this end that I am participating in this forum.

I moved 11 years ago to Zero, er, Vero Beach, Florida to get away from Minnesnowta winters. I had a nice analog studio back in the '70's and got hired away from myself by my equipment supplier. I worked for them for many years (and in the process designed, wired and installed the system that Prince used in his warehouse for parts of the Purple Rain project). I have been away from knob twisting for about 30 years :( and am contemplating setting up a small location recording rig. I currently have one Presonus FireStudio and am about to add a second. I have about 5 cheap condensers, not at all like the Neumann U67's that I used to use, but, they may help get me started. Still need to pick up a bunch of splitters, stands, cables etc. Here's my location rig from about 1975 or so:

David Bernhagen; present, but not accounted for.

I was a symphonic trumpet player 'till I became ill and unable to play. The last two years, or so, I've been getting into recording live classical and jazz as a way of staying in music. I have done about 50 recordings so far, and am starting to make a little money now. Most of my recordings were done in the Netherlands, where my wife was studying baroque cello. She has begun the PhD program in musicology at UCLA, so my work is now centered around that.

I use Mac computers, Apogee duet and MOTU 896HD interfaces, an M-Audio Micro-Trak II for back up, an Audio Developments 8/2 Mixer, AKG K271S and Tannoy 600A for monitoring, and microphones from AKG, Nakamichi, Tannoy, and Telefunken USA.

I love tubes and analog, but realize there is no money to be made using the following. They are for my personal amusement and use: Studer C37 and B67, Presto 825, Altec 1566a (3), a Leak Stereo 20, various bits from TAB, Klangfilm, RTW, Telefunken, Seimens, and Danner to go into a custom console that will be reminiscent of EMI REDD consoles (long term project, but fun,) And many more esoteric little projects, especially custom monitoring systems.

Sorry if that was too long.
