I ripped and cleaned up (somewhat) 18 of Blindfish's songs. Converted them to mp3 format and uploaded to Google Drive. There is still some clipping in some of the songs, but not as much. The first 3 are Blindfish originals, the rest are covers. They are downloadable of course. Put ‘em on your smart phone and listen to them while jogging or coding.

I know this guy that makes websites, they should get one.....:P

Sounds good lawman, I listened to Walk Down. I wish them luck as that is a tough business. Some friends of mine had a band that was really popular locally. They were offered a sign your life away contract and didn't take it. The reason they didn't take it is because they were having too much fun, whether that would of went anywhere who knows but it's a tough decision.

Getting a website has to be their idea. They don't know it, but my brother reserved a domain name for them. When they realize they need one, he'll make it available to them.

FYI on the clipping part, this is on snare hits primarily? You're recording this with? Look in the options to see if it has an attenuator. My camcorder has one but it's prosumer camcorder. If it's line in to some device they have them for the line.

I did a lot of recording of my friends band and that was the only fix whether it was line in from the board or the camcorder.

Recorded with an inexpensive Panasonic camcorder. Had the mic's gain turned as low as it would go. No provision for an external mic. I recently bought a Panasonic prosumer camcorder (HC-X920). Also bought an external Rode mic that allows me to flip a switch and reduce input by another 10db. I think I'm covered. I guess I'll find out for sure next gig.

The built in mic's on mine are stereo and had their own independent adjustable recording levels however that didn't help because I'd have to turn them down so low you'd lose all dynamics in the sound once I boosted it an audio editor.

I pulled my hair out for weeks and had a RTFM moment when I came across the attenuator option. :P

The external mic allows me to attenuate audio by 10db with just the flip of a switch. If that isn't enough, the camcorder mic setting allows me to decrease audio by 30db. Next time I'm in a close setting with loud music I'll start off with the external mic attenuation and go to the camera setting if required. If I remember I'll let you know how it works.

FYI the external mic is a Rode Stereo Videomic. It is powered by a 9v battery.
