I found it, too. Tape Op sent and email about their online mag, and I was perusing it and found our Heroes being interviewed. How cool! Dave and Tony, you guys are the greatest, and I am glad that you got some recognition from the most credible recording mag in the universe for the masses. Good on ya, guys! I haven't done shit in the studio for the last year, and I am once again inspired by you guys to dust off the mics and hit it again.

Oh, and I'm also glad that Andrew got some props there; I listened to HRO from ep. 1! I remember one of the first episodes was Andrew just reading a list of eq frequencies and what they were good for. That show got better and better, and I remember thinking that it had to be a lot of work. I can't imagine making that kind of commitment!

I can't remember which episode HMHS was on when I first heard it (I DO remember it was the one where Tony reviewed his Variax guitar), but I immediately downloaded all the previous episodes and subscribed to the feed. I have been enjoying it ever since. I can't tell you how much Tony and Dave brighten up my day when I see there is a new episode on the feed.

Thank you both, and it's about time you guys got some recognition from the press!

Thanks Patrick (and Steve), these interviews were done a REALLY long time ago so they must have been desperate.

I'm always surprised when people consider TapeOp as a great mag for home recorders because I really don't think it is, there's rarely an article that doesn't focus on gear outside the price range of most of us and techniques you could only use in a studio or with unlimited time.

Ok, I obviously need to spend more time on the web since this post has been up for 5 days.

The article came about because an HRO listener named Rob Christiansen contacted me about doing an interview a long time ago. He is a sometimes correspondent for Tape Op and interviewed me at least a year ago. He was trying to get it into the magazine but it eventually ended up in the online version. It was nice to get a little recognition.

Yeah, I agree with Tony a bit. Tape Op definitely has some analog snobbery going on and many hints like: pull out your Avalon pre-amp and plug it into your vintage LA-2A. Most of us don't have $10,000 to throw around on recording gear. :look:

Thanks to Rob though for getting this article out there. Pretty cool!

I agree that Tape Op isn't a great mag for home recordists, for the same reasons that Tony and Dave stated. I think it is aimed more at the project studio market. It's principle virtue for me is that it is free, and they occasionally interview someone I am interested in, like our favorite podcasters. Since I'm not paying for it, I don't mind that 80% of the magazine is essentially useless to me.

FYI: You know, you could do the HMHS on blogtalkradio.com and have people call in. You would also actually earn a few (a very few) bucks when people listen.

I always wanted to tell you that but never found a good opportunity. This probably wasn't a good place for it either, but there you have it...

Ahh, how misunderstood I am :) I have never really had any interest in getting paid for this (or my music). It's a hobby.

No, I understand. Besides, the pennies you would make wouldn't be worth transporting the entire operation over to that website. You are right - keep it pure.

I think you've always made that pretty clear.

Can I have my donation back then, please? :twisted:

Nice find, Steve.
