Back Row review...

... was awesome! Congratulations Back Row! I'd like to point out however that my contribution to the album was only in mixing and sequencing percussion for Only You - Bill mixed that track as a whole, and so the credit for "best hip hop producer yada yada" should be all his... :)

Indeed. Congrats, guys!

One thing I should mention: whereas Bill and I were involved in this album, these guys really did it themselves. Bill and I initailly taught them how to record an album (at our seminar), but then they did 95% of the recording and production themselves (note that I helped on the album, and yet at my most involved I'd consider myself only a "co-producer" on any track - I was really more of a consultant). And sequencing, cleaning of tracks, tuning and alignment, etc.

Honestly, working with these guys, I was floored. Their level of commitment was absolutely top shelf, which I expected having worked with them before, but there was no guarantee the quality would be this high. A stunning debut all around.

Generally speaking, the lower scored songs are the ones the group tackeled first. That's right, a new group doing their very first song recording themselves, and even the earliest tracks pulling in 3's and 4's.

And as they learned and perfected their craft, you got tunes like "Feel Good Inc." Soup to nuts, the creative ownership belongs to The Back Row, especially Ian and Ford.

This is the new direction for collegiate a cappella: the group members themselves do all/most of the recording and pre-mix, in addition to the arranging, rehearsing, directing, producing.

In other words, the gauntlet has been thrown. If they can do it, so can you!

On a similar note, we tracked and edited Left on Red all on our own and recorded in the Logs' studio.

For this next CD, we've built our own little studio and man, I can't tell you how much of a difference it makes. Sure, it's not soundproof, but we have as many hours as we want and can play forever. And it's a hell of a lot cheaper than using an actual studio.

I was telling Deke and Bill about it and heard about Back Row doing it as well. Props. Your CD, from what I've heard (which admittedly is only half the tracks), sounds awesome. Expect a purchase order from me soon :)

You really learn a lot when you have more time to track and edit. We even come up with our own (shitty, but existent) mixes now. :)

As for equipment, in reference to RnBMrE's question, the studio itself, for us, cost a total of 710 bucks. 650 for the mic (AKG C414) and 60 bucks for the wood/free ceiling tiles. Granted, we already had an MBox and Protools, but according to http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?lan ... temid=4962 thats only an extra $329.

If you want pictures, we have some up:

Anyway, the point is if Back Row and we can do it, you can too!
