    Default How will they record it?

    If there is a new album or c.d. coming out, how did they record it do you think?
    Has Eddie gone digital with the recording process or has he stuck to his guns with recording on tape.

    It doesn't make sense to me that bands will put out a vinyl record of something that was 1st recorded digitally.
    Always start with tape if you can no?

    I thought Eddie revamped 5150 not so long ago and got rid of all the analog gear for a state of the art setup. I think I remember seeing one of his original recording consoles for sale on ebay or something?

    I say digital since we know Ed is up to date on how things work nowadays.

    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Probably digital, there are producers and engineers that know how to work with it to where there isn't that brickwall compression that seems so common these days.

    Pretty sure it would have to be digital. Even though it was not recorded in 5150 (Which went digital some time ago), and though many studios still have the gear to record in analog, it's gotten so cost and time prohibitive.to really go all analog on an album unless you really have a need to.
    The last big name band I heard that did a full analog album was AC/DC, and I heard an engineer who through the grapevine got word that it was actually a pretty miserable experience, though the finished product made up for it according to them.
    The very fact that there's very little good tape left to be had, and the absolute bottom of the barrel 2" tape(Quantegy, Sony, etc.) goes for a minimum $300.00 per fifteen minute spool. I just got some BASF stuff, and it's actually oxidized so badly from poor storage, I'm not sure if I'd attempt using it. My supplier just got in some primo Scotch 3M from England that they are selling for $1.100.00 dollars a reel. That's major moola for something that's gonna be sliced up, here and there and stands a good chance of not being used on the final product. Compare that to digital, and simpy cutting and pasting virtually, it's a no brainer.

    Digital. Analog who cares?

    If the songs are shite, it won't even sound good in "Dubley."

    Come to think of it, I think there is still one in my cousin's makeshift studio. Figures, we have that but got rid of the 16 track analog recorder.

    Doesn't matter to me much as long as the songs are good.

    Foo Fighters recorded their last album on analog, didn't they?

    And Halestorm recorded drums for their new album on tape. I think Airbourne might have recorded all analog too?
