Save Our Stages Act
Save Our Stages Act
Making a Scene Brings you a rundown of the Save Our Stages Act

With the Covid 19 Shutdown of the gig economy, the small music venue is lifeblood for the touring indie artist. Democrate Senator Amy Klobuchar and Republican Senator John Cornyn has proposed the Save our Stages Act to help small venues weather this shutdown of Live Music.

The NIVA - National Independent Venue Association is helping push the movement to get the Republican controlled Senate to pass this legislation so it can move through the House and ultimately to the Presidents Desk.

You can help support this effort with their easy to fill out Senate/House Representative Form. It cost nothing to support his important legislation to help keep our touring system intact.

Tape Plugin Shoots don't Make Sense
Tape Plugin Shoots don't Make Sense
Tape machine plugins emulate an analog tape machine, which is obvious. But analog tape had a lot of technological breakthroughs over the decades that we were recording to it. The earliest tapes were noisier, had less headroom, and due to the technology of the time they had a more obvious sound to them. This was the closest they could get to uncolored sound at the time, which was their ultimate goal. As tape machine technology improved, the machines became less noisy. Bias was introduced to improve high end clarity. Tape types were developed that had more headroom and more clarity. And the beat goes on and on and on, until we have sonically excellent sounding tape machines that were in use in the 1980’s. Then digital came about and finally offered us the perfectly linear behavior we’d been trying to achieve, but we missed some of the good things tape brought to the table.
