    I can produce mastered vocals. Over a beat that I can also master.
    http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=12347&songID=2446243

    Now's where you give me the 70's equivalent. Granted, I didn't produce this one, but same result. Granted if you're in a band you'll need more equipment, but it's still much easier these days. That's the point.
    No one said it was deep technical sound engineering. It doesn't have to be.


    Point is: It's easier to make quality sound now. Meaning there are tons more artists. Meaning the talent depth is even deeper than before.
    Doesn't matter what you consider production. It's easy and I can name rappers that use the method with better lyrics than anyone from the 70s, just so there's no lack of respect there.

    Any kid with a Mr. Microphone and a Realistic Cassette deck can say that. Doesn't make them better than every home production done in the 70's.


    Adding vocals over a prerecorded beat is no more than simple karaoke, which was probably only going on in Japan back in the 70's


    Har Har.. come back after you've actually recorded a live band.
    Night and day difference..

    Nope.
    It doesn't mean the talent depth is deeper it only means every lame hack with an SM57 out there is doing it. The talented ones were gonna do it anyway..

    Here's the hitch though... Most rap sucks.

    I just copied a song, and didnt pay attention to lyrics- but he's probably got tracks with better lyrics than your favorite band. "and you can pray to the leaves, it doesn't mean seasons will change just because you believe in the trees". Either way, this isn't about the content of talent of the rapper- it's about the sound quality being better than anything from the 70s that you can give me.

    Which is why you haven't supplied anything.

    And no, CC not any kid with a mic and tape recorder can MASTER a track. Editing. Read about it.

    As for rap sucking- a lot of it does. But The Roots are about as talented as any band you can mention.

    Editing, mastering, and producing are three entirely different arts.

    As for supplying anything, Aja jumps to the top of my head for an example of excellent production from the 70's.
    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/6x6uoNqH-_A&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/6x6uoNqH-_A&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    Now, what's going to happen next is you will deny that the sound quality is notable at all, because it would undermine your point. Unfortunately, you haven't noticed that you are attempting to argue a completely subjective point... which means there's no winning.

    You are confusing production (which determines the content of a song) with engineering (which determines how that content is presented) with mastering (which determines the frequency spectrum limits used to apply the song to a recordable format).

    Thanks for the video Avvie. That has always been my favorite Steely Dan song. In fact, that's the one that got me into them in the first place.

    Why should I.. Just post a few more rap cuts like that and you’ll have a bonanza of beats/loops stolen from records cut in the 70’s..


    Um,… Mastering is not editing Gloat. It’s all done post-mix.
    Either way you won’t be doing much quality mastering with C.E.P. since it doesn’t allow you to work in real-time.
    I can show you how if you really want to master some tracks..


    I’m very happy for you..
