Changes At RecordingReview.com

Brandon Drury —  October 19, 2007

I’m doing some house cleaning here at RecordingReview.com. The site has looked terrible for a long time, but I just haven’t had the time to spend improving it. I’m not exactly gifted in the graphic design universe, and I want to hold off on paying a pro graphic designer until my vision for this RecordingReview.com is fully realized.

Until then, I’ll have to take it a step at a time.

I’ve decided that I want to simply the look of the site. I feel there is quite a bit of info here (there had better be after all the eons I’ve spent writing these stupid articles! Ha ha! However, it’s tough to find the good info. You have to sift through tons of garbage, bad site design, and poorly placed ads to find anything. Well, that’s about to change, hopefully!

Here Are A Few Of The Changes I’m Making:

  • Ditching The Glossary
  • Throwing Away The Directory
  • Adding an Easier To Read Layout
  • Adding A Better Reviews System

I will be adding a glossary section to my first book.

    Hey Brandon,

    I agree with Andy: Best danged site on the planet! Since I discovered it only 2 days ago, I’ve been turning everybody and their dog onto it. (Dogs hear better.)

    Rather than ditching the glossary, I wish it could be centrally located on the site (in everyone’s face, possibly with a linked tab) rather than in hard copy form (which would be easy to misplace and hard to keep revised with the ever-changing digital world). I know you said something about it not working out for some reason, hence the desire to nuke it. But if it were kept, linking to common terms in our posts would be totally awesome. Like when I wrote a post just recently and said something in passing about an SM57, I was totally blown away to see it automatically linked to a photo of an SM57, along with yours and others’ description/rating of it. How cool is that! Reminded me of a local Wikipedia.

    You may be right, but it’s too late to change my decision now.

  5. Brandon,

    I wanted to ask you about the mic I got. It is a Sennheiser e825s. I want to use it for vocals as well as for things that I want to record mor unidirectionally. I also have an MPX-80 condenser mic from M-Audio for “everything else.” Can you comment on the Sennheiser and if you “think” hat it is a good substitute for the Shure that you recommend?

    I will strive to read here BEFORE any more purchases.

    Anyse

    Hope all is well with you.

    Don’t you have some hard copy of your glossary elsewhere? If you do and don’t have character recognition scanning, I would be more than happy to “resurrect” it for you. Or, does ANYONE out there have a hard copy of this?
