    Default Studio Pics! Who's got them, or why don't they exist?

    I'm obsessed with studio pictures. I like Marilyn Manson's sound. But why can't I find any Manson studio pictures? I swear I've seen them in the past. The dude seems to know his way around a studio, so I'm surprised he doesn't get all geeky with this stuff and post more gear porn. If I had access to an SSL AWS 924 it'd be in all of my personal photos. It'd be in my driver's license photo.

    The best I can do via Google is this:



    Pretty decent shot. A bit small, so it's hard to make out the gear, but I spot a few interesting bits:
    • SSL AWS924 Console
    • Urei 1178 Stereo Limiter
    • A bunch of API 512 preamps, I think. Hard to make out at this resolution.
    • Some Radial EXTCs, also in the 500-series format
    • Some sort of EMI EQ maybe? I can't place it. It almost looks like a Curve Bender but with gray knobs.
    • Manley Vari-Mu
    • Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor
    • A pair of 1176-LNs
    • The big fucker on the right is a Studer A800 24-track tape machine (cool)


    Is anyone else interested in this stuff, or am I just the biggest nerd here? And can anyone point me to similar photos? They've got to be hiding somewhere.

    No pics to contribute, but I've always been fascinated with the descriptions of the studios Manson has given. I can't point to specific interviews, but I recall a few in particular, where he seems to like to design and decorate the studio to have the kind of vibe they are going for on the album. Mechanical Animals was all white in the Hollywood Hills somewhere...and, I almost imagine it looking like something from the korova in A Clockwork Orange. Holy Wood recorded in the desert....very Charles Manson esque.... I remember hearing that he used rubber dildos slapping against leather couches as some of the beats on Golden Age.... Born Villain recorded in his apartment studio above a liquor store on a little, hidden in plain sight street in LA. Sounds very quaint and simple...almost poor or ghetto, one room apartments I've recorded in above other business in the middle of the city in Chicago, not far from Sears Tower. Everyone is already familiar with the circumstances outlined in Long Hard Road out of Hell for Antichrist and the Sharon Tate house for Portrait... All that's left is EMDM, which I recall being recorded in one or two takes, leaving in all the imperfections, and in some cases, singing laying down flat on his back, and also in all dark room lit by candle light. High End Of Low seems more chaotic like Antichrist. Like a destroyed apartment studio with lyrics written on walls and a total utter mess and destruction. ...Can't seem to recall any imagery description or interesting anecdotes about Pale Emperors recording process... Also, I know this thread was supposed to be geared more towards...gear.... but, I happen to be interested in circumstances surrounding the writing process and recording. Those to me are always very interesting, especially in a case like Manson. Please add to anything I've brought up that you can...and pictures would be lovely.

    During the interview with Manson and Tyler Bates at the Grammy Museum I attended, Manson had stated that The Pale Emperor was recorded at Tyler's home studio. And Manson had described the studio as being "...without sounding religious, almost church-like." He had also stated it was him and Tyler sitting at a table, across form one another and that's how the album was recorded.

    I, too, am fascinated by MM's entire process, and it kind of makes sense that he's more talkative about the daggers-and-candles stuff rather than, say, which EQ sat on the master bus. I just happen to be sitting with a guitar on my knee at the moment, laying down four duplicate tracks of guitar, and wondering how he/they get some of those far out sounds. My favorite thing about MM music is the "sound"; the musicianship is nothing to write home about, but the sound, mood, and feel - that's inspiring.

    Haz, that EQ article is great. I can't see it in the PM archive, it should definitely get added in.

    As for the Instagram pic, that appears to be backstage, as I doubt even Manson goes to those sorts of lengths in the makeup department just to record at the studio. He appears to be playing on a Gibraltar practice kit, which Ginger once mentioned he took on tour with them.
    My avatar looks like a mix of NIN, My Chemical Romance, and Chris Vrenna

    The recent photo for TPE is actually Robert Carranza's studio who did the mixing after the album was recorded in Tyler's home studio and drums were tracked at Igloo Music in LA.

    Didn't Manson say something along the lines of keeping the studio at freezing temperatures? "Half frozen wax" and what not.

    Tyler, Manson, and Gil. Not sure about the dude in the middle.




    When he did that "Love Game" remix with Lady Gaga. Although the lyrics in front of them are for "Arma-goddamn-motherfuckin-geddon", a remix that never happened/got shelved?




    With Sean Beavan during the recording of Born Villain.




    With the Make-A-Wish kid, Andrew, I believe his name was. He got to do backing vocals on "This is The New Shit".






    With The Sneaker Pimps when they recorded "Long Hard Road Out of Hell". Love how they shit on each other afterwards lol




    ... Holy Wood


    And these were some that I could think of off the top of my head that Google had. Not too gear-heavy, but still Manson in the studio. I wish there were more in-studio pics from 94-2000. That'd be fucking amazing!
