Home Studio Gear Episode
On Today’s TAXI TV!
Gear Giveaway During the Live Show!!

7pm Eastern (EDT) / 6pm Central (CDT) / 4pm Pacific (PDT) /
23:00 London/ 10am Sydney (AEST)

Dear Passengers,

Our viewers love home studio gear. Heck, all musicians love gear!

We’ve never done a gear specific episode of TAXI TV, but today is going to change all that! We’ll be talking about everything from how to build an inexpensive yet highly effective home studio, to answering questions about gear for all levels of home studio owners.

We’re excited to be joined by special guest, Peter Malick from Westlake Pro today. The top guys at Westlake Pro are gear veterans who spent decades at the legendary West LA Music, which was the “go-to” place for many of the top acts in the business.

When West LA closed its doors, some of their top managers and sales people opened Westlake Pro, and their long tradition of giving great advice and helping musicians get what they really needed continued under a new roof.

These guys are true gear gurus, and I think you’re going to have a great time picking Peter Malick’s brain on today’s show! And don’t think for a second that Peter is just sales guy. He’s one of you! Check out his bio here.

Want to know how you can get started with a low cost rig that’s easy to use and sounds great? Don’t miss today’s show. Want to know which of the high-priced mic preamps should be the best for your specific needs? Peter will know that answer to that and nay other gear questions you can throw at him!

This is going to be an awesome show, and Peter is going to bring something special to give away to one of our lucky viewers during the live show.

Want to ask Peter a question during the show?
You’ll need to be signed up to Ustream and be “visible” in the TAXI TV chat room during the live show. Sign up BEFORE the show goes live today. It only takes a of minute, and it’s FREE!

Go to: http://www.ustream.tv/ and click the Log In (text) link in the upper right hand corner of the Ustream page – NOT the blue button! – Fill out the short form to join. If you’ve already got a free Ustream account and you’ve used our chat room before, you can skip this step. Once you’re on TAXI’s Ustream page, please click the link on the right had side of the page that says, “Chat,” and the chat room will open for you.

Only people who are in the Chat Room during the live show will be eligible to get the FREE piece of gear! Hmmm… I wonder what it will be? Guess you’ll have to be in the Chat Room to find out and have your shot at getting it!

Google, “ad blocker” and the name of your browser to find a free ad blocker download you can install before today’s show.

smile.gif a quote from this project video.
This should be a really cool book - it's based on the song by a song-writer I really look up to: Jonathan Coulton

What d'ya think? Would this CL ad interest you enough to call? Does it tell you enough? Does it narrow things down too much? Before I post it, I'm getting my ducks in a row, so I figured while I do that, I would try to get some feedback from you on how to refine the ad.

Thanks!
Chris


Greetings,

I'm a guitarist/singer starting an "original" indie/rock/metal project
I'm seeking a bassist/drummer/keyboardist able to sing (gender doesn't matter).

If you enjoy the musicality & complexity of bands like the following (in no intentional order),
then you may be interested in the musical direction of this project.

Katatonia / Cult / Opeth / Alice in Ch / Fleetwood Mac / Triumph / Silverchair / Civil Wars

Short term goal:
Perform under-played covers (plugged & unplugged) exceptionally well at open mics, and random venues,
for fun/practice and perhaps even pay if I can create the opportunity.
Entertaining is one of the joys of music right?

Long term goal:
Write, record and perform originals - perhaps take a short vacation/tour of the country-side.

You:
1. have your own pro-gear
2. possess relative pitch / ability to sing in-key
3. are able to commit to an agreed apon (fixed) day of the Week to practice/write as a group.

Drummer:
1. able to play softly / tastefully
2. able to play loudly / aggressively
3. able/desiring to play other percussion instrument(s) in unplugged environment

Bassist:
1. able to play with a pick (for sound definition)
2. able to play back-beat rhythms
3. able to keep time without a drummer
4. able to fast-drone consistent 16th notes for duration

Keyboardist:
1. Able to create sound-scapes like John Horner?
2. Able to control / sample sounds / wurlitzer?

You don't need to be a "pro", but you do need to be proficient at your instrument.
You also need to be notably disciplined in your practice regimen because of set goals.

Wanna kick things off ? Let's try each other on at an open mic.

call me to arrange the date/location/3 songs to perform

Chris ~
