Sounds Sounds
These are sample sounds from TheAirtightGarage amplifiers. Please read the notes below carefully:

NOTES: I follow the "Mapleshade" or purist form when I record sample sounds here at the Garage. All of the sounds on this page are recorded "straight". That is to say, I use no eq, no compressors, no gates, no limiters... no milking of any sort. The guitar cable used is an eighteen foot GeorgeLs with unplated ends, the microphone cable used is a run of the mill Dayton cable with standard Neutrik NC3FX and NC3MX connectors. The mic cable is plugged into a Mackie analog 8-bus mixer with the eq in the "out" position (e.g. I am just using it as a clean mic preamp) and the output of the Mackie is run directly into an Apple Powermac or Panasonic SV3700 depending on how many mics were used. All of the sounds are recorded in TheAirtightGarage itself, with the amplifier on the floor, and its front is facing along the same axis as the longest wall of the building. TheAirtightGarage has no special acoustical treatment.

That being said, all of the amplifiers will exhibit a larger more well rounded sound in a larger area, as the Garage is probably smaller than your average venue.

I have included the sample sounds here in mp3 format, and also in ogg vorbis format. All tracks are recorded at standard CD quality (44.1kHz/16b), and have not been up or down sampled. If your internet connection is very slow, or if you have trouble downloading, email or call and I can send you a CD in raw format of all of my sample sounds. Please note, since most computer speakers are no where near the quality of say, your average studio monitor, these tracks are really to give you an idea of the sound... for critical listening a good set of monitors or studio headphones is recommended.

Note Gary Granger of 3LC did most of the tracks below (see notes). You can learn more about Gary here.
