    Im a big fan of the Stripes and i happy to see that Jack is all about analog recording and not ditigial. I want to know how they recorded most all there albums. Cause im recording analog with an 8 track mixer to a Stellavox reel to reel and i want there sound. Does anyone know how they did it?

    I heard they did it all on a 1" 8-track. But if I were you I'd focus on a good guitar sound. That, and great songwriting, is the key to the success of Elephant IMHO.

    They record with a lott warm old stuff, I love it too.
    A lot of the sound has to do with that equipment I think.

    there's a bit about the guy who recorded them in sound on sound magazine...'s propably also on their website...http://...
    i guess if you compress enough you can even make a reeeeeeaaally crappy drummer sound acceptable...
    i do mean seriously crappy....
    did i mention the fact that the girl can't drum?

    Ze is niet de beste drummer, Huub. :)
    She's not the best drummer, Huub.

    But the drumsound is good, and certainly not crappy I think.
