    One of the few artists to make me THINK about a song in a long time. Kevin Dorin plays to help you listen to the music between the notes. Great writing with phenomenal phrasing.

Q: The latest tape work is excellent, seems so clear and strong(signal). Did you have to process the signal heavily or is the reel to reel giving that much clean character???... great remix...

A: thanks! It's a 70s Sony TC-377 machine I've been using with old tape and Ribbon mics for VOX. I'm using almost no Eq and NO noise reduction. This surprised me as Ribbon mics require the most gain from the pre-amps. Ribbons and tape give me a near finished product like a slab of "granite". I just maintain dynamics when mastering. and it also limits the amount of Noise-floor. I find it's all in understanding how analog mediums capture clarity, and when they begin to distort. Once you understand that on your particular machine, you can use it as a creative tool, The input level to tape ultimately determines how much you need to boost amplitude in mastering:) I'm mostly just compressing with a Fairchild 670EMU and then limiting lightly.
