How does Steve Albini get those metallic guitar sounds so badassedly made famous in Big Black, Rapeman, and Shellac? [more inside]
Dear home recorders - in your experience(s), can an acoustic/electric hybrid guitar ever sound as good as a properly mic'ed acoustic guitar, given guitars of comparable quality/price?
Anyone have experience using a Korg MR1 or, in lieu of that, any mobile recording device?
I am a sort-of musician (lo-fi ambient-ish- real marketable stuff) and I want to start going out into the crazy world about me and recording various sounds. I'm looking for tips on a suitable microphone for field recording and, just as importantly, a good (quality + convenience) digital sound recording device so that I can come back and transfer my sounds without losing quality.
