Taxi's "Studio Buddy"

Post by VanderBoegh » Mon Nov 26, 2018 11:31 am

I just sent a comment to another member about some simple ways to mic live horns, and I remembered where I actually learned how to record live brass instruments myself...... right here on Taxi.

Taxi has a hidden gem for recording tips, studio secrets, and miking magic. And I think it's largely gone unnoticed and under-promoted by Taxi. But it's a true gold mine of information. And it's free. It's called "Studio Buddy".

If you haven't checked it out, it's worth peeking at before you record your next live instrument:

Hi Matt,
I tried to download Studio Buddy in my early days at Taxi about 3-4 years ago but the links on the web site mostly showed 'Not Found'. I'd forgotten about it since then but on re-visiting now it appears that nothing has changed and Studio Buddy is still unavailable. Do you know whether the content is available elsewhere? Thanks :)

Shoot, I swear that link was working the other day. But now I'm getting a "404 Page Not Found" error too. Weird.

I e-mailed Taxi about this and here is the response:

Thanks for your email. That is a very old site that TAXI has since taken down.

I found the .exe and tested it on Windows 10. It seems to be working fine! Thanks for mentioning this. I like how it's all in one place.

Here is the direct download link.

Wow. Tons of great info in that ol' dog. Stoked that it still exists, for some folks. I'm pretty sure ML had a lot to do with that, cuz the advice may be old school but it's all still relevant.

I DL Studio Buddy many years before I got serious and joined Taxi. I remember it was a very useful tool.
