Sooooo...I mentioned to Mike Metlay recently that George Massenburg's archived forum still gets a decent amount of traffic. Mike apparently let George know that...

George told Mike we could turn it back on - said he might even try to stop by once in a while. cool

Consequently, George Massenburg's Professional Recording Forum is now live again....and there's a wealth of cool content to be had in there already. smile

George rocks. So does brother Mike, for that matter.

Wow! That's great news!!

I once did sessions at the ITI studios in Maryland, where George was engineering. I think this was before 1972, when he presented his paper on parametric EQ at AES. He said he had a really cool equalizer design, which we discussed.

Apparently, he did indeed have a cool equalizer design smile

Indeed he did...

George's mixing skills completely knock me out. If I had to pick a fave, I'd probably be stuck somewhere between Earth, Wind & Fire and Lyle Lovett.

George is an incredible engineer - he's worked on some of my favorite records of all time. He's also a true gentleman. First class all the way, and his Musicplayer forum is an absolute gold mine of priceless information!

I've surfed that forum, it is awesome and so is George M.

With the exception of the announcement post, the most current posts are from 2004 so 15+ years old.

So it is a mixture of timeless topics and discussions of obselete software and gear.

I looked around for a way to create a new post and did not see one? Is it simply that you've relocated the archive? Thanks, Kuru

Actually...

I've been watching the traffic in the forum since I turned it back on. It's stayed exactly the same as when it was archived...

...and, while George has said that he may stop by occasionally, the more I think about it the more it seems like a bad idea to leave a forum open with George's name on it and essentially nobody watching it. With no one there to respond or drive traffic it'll probably just sit there...
...so I've sent it back to the archives. hider

I did leave the ability to post in it active...but if it's in the archives, there won’t be an expectation that anyone will answer. idk

Hey, at least it got Phil O'Keefe to stop by smile Fortunately, I have compromising pictures of him, so hopefully he'll be stopping by more. Because if he doesn't...well, just because the poodle was over 18 in dog years doesn't necessarily get you off the hook. Just sayin.'
