Gearslutz!

Posted by AreJay Smith
Ever wonder which microphone to buy? How to get that sound out of your guitar that you hear on your favorite record? Looking for talent to accompany a new track you're working on? The GearSlutz forum has always been the place to go to answer any question pertaining to recording, equipment, and to just shoot the breeze among fellow musicians and producers. I don’t know how many times I’ve had to use their forum to answer questions about everything. The app makes it extremely convenient to do so, especially those late nights I lay in bed just frustrated with a track that isn’t coming around the way I like. Besides the countless gobs of information, you can also post a question, which in my experience, I’ve received a reply promptly from someone with great experience in the recording arts. I’ve also worked with great talent that I met through GearSlutz such as Justin Roelant, who did the vocals for My Atoned Faults. When I saw that, world class producers such as one of my idols Butch Vig(producer of Nirvana’s Nevermind Album) had their own sections where they personally answered questions. I was giddy like a child who met their favorite superhero! The forum is a great place, period, for all that pertains to music. It's even better that they have an app that’s reliable and convenient.
