Anyway, at least we're making some connections through it and setting up some shows (July 16th, time and location TBA), and you can check out a few recordings which have been done in Kevin's living room via a single mike and a 4-track recorder. So, over all, the quality is amazing. I reccomend Red Linen, which is the most recent recording and most representative of where we're headed now.
I've also changed my rig around a lot. A laptop isn't part of the rig any more because it was too many effects; I was getting carried away and the latency was killing me. Literally like a 1/5 of a second delay. Not cool. So I went the foot-pedal route, which brings me to three stomp-boxes: Boss DD-6 Digital Delay, PH-1 Phase Shifter (mostly for the theremin), and a Harmlectronix(?) Holy Grail Reverb. I could go check the actual name, but I'm lazy.
My biggest concern right now is projection. The current plan is to take my small 60-watt amp, mike it, and run that to the board, which works, assuming: a) where we're playing has a sound board and house PA, and b) that 60-watts is good enough to power the mike over all the other background- because I know I can't hear it over the band when I'm sitting on it. (a) should be taken care of- Valentine's has a house PA both upstairs and downstairs (and we won't see the upstairs for awhile anyway), and so does the Fuze Box, and we've got connections at both of those places. I can't think of any other clubs in the immediate area that'd host a show like ours anyway. We're probably going to draw a cross-over crowd from the goth-esque set.
So, uh, yeah. Check out the songs on the MySpace. Watch this space for updates, and eventually there'll be a real website.
