Cash reward for tip-offs about Bendigo kangaroo culprits

A CASH reward has been put up to find those involved in the mutilation of a kangaroo at Coles car park in the CBD on Friday night.

Bendigo business Australian Social Network Marketing is offering $500 for any tip-offs that lead to details on who was involved in the incident.

Director Tom Bailey said he hoped the guilty party would come forward.

“I’m hoping that someone who’s seen it or someone involved may feel guilty and admit to the incident. Having this incentive will hopefully lead to information,” he said.

Mr Bailey urged anyone who knew information to email

All information will be passed on to police.

Wildlife rescuers were alerted to the dead kangaroo late Friday night.

Wildlife Rescue Emergency Service co-founder Jo Lyall described the incident as cruel and inhumane.

“Some sick and twisted people took her to the upstairs car park of Coles; she would have been alive when they mutilated her,”she said.

“They put her in a trolley and pushed her down the stairs.

“We took her for an autopsy and it was ascertained there was human intervention.”

Studio Rates

Decide what elements are essential to the mix. This includes the important instruments in the arrangement as well as peripheral sounds that make a recording special. Listen to your song carefully. Decide what elements are absolutely essential. Figure out what instruments and sounds add something magic to the song. Get rid of sounds that detract from the overall vision of the song. This is often a difficult decision, but a necessary one to make a song as direct as possible. Of course, if you’re mixing down a sound collage or an experimental piece, the rules apply in a slightly different way.

Make sure as a singer or vocalist you are well rehearsed, physically comfortable, and under no psychological pressure. Most singers perform best standing up in a room that has a comfortable but not over-warm temperature. If they are distracted by other members of the band or by hangers-on, send everyone but the engineer (and producer, if you have one) out of the studio.

Don’t settle for anything less than the best vocal performance you can get, and don’t expect to get it all perfect in one take. More often than not you’ll have to punch in and out around phrases that need re-doing, but if you have enough tracks, get the singer to do the whole song several times and then compile a track from the best parts of each take. You can do this on tape by bouncing the required parts to a spare track, but hard disk editing is much more flexible in this respect.

Mastering Rates $190.00 per song or $850 for a full lenth Album up to 12 songs.

No song is complete without a master. Our mastering service brings more depth, maximizes loudness, widens the stereo image, and brings all of the parts of your song together! We pride ourselves on giving you a record that is commercial release quality; “radio ready” is the term in the business. Each song is carefully tweaked and crafted to perfection, not just run through a couple of presets. It doesn’t matter whether you want to do 1 song or a full album make your songs stand out with our mastering service.

 Analog or digital? YOU choose!

 The debate over using analog tapes, warm tube compressors and enhancers vs. precise, high-performance digital equipment will always be a hot topic. The truth is that it depends on the style of music.

If you’re making an rock album (a la U2 or The Killers) OR a jazz album you’re better off using analog gear. If you’re making an pop album you’ll want to use digital equipment to give it the sonic clarity of today’s commercial pop songs.

When you order mixing from StudioPros, YOU can choose the way we master your song, or you can let us choose for you.

– Zip/(Archive) your files before uploading them. It will make the upload process shorter and won’t damage your files in any way.

Dr. Dre Beat Box

While fans are still eagerly awaiting Detox, Dr. Dre can at least ensure that when the much-anticipated album does arrive, fans will have a vast array of premium listening options.

Last week, the Good Doctor was in New York along with Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine to unveil the latest Beats by Dre headphone line. While Dre had much to say about the David Guetta-inspired DJ headphone and a wireless set, he seemed particularly fond of the new Beats boombox and iPod dock.

According to Dre, he has a Beatbox in every room of his house and even uses the speakers to judge his studio mixes. “Before now, I’ve always taken my mixes out to the car and listened to them in the parking lot,” the Doc told MTV News. “I still do that, but more so now I’m listening to it on the Beatbox, and I think people should give it at least a listen and check it out and see what it is.”

Not that his car isn’t an option. In April, Beats by Dre announced a partnership with Chrysler, which would place a Beats-designed sound system into the new Chrysler 300S. Ever the pitchman, Dre compared the 300S to a Bentley.

“Yeah, the Chrysler, that sounds incredible,” Dre boasted. “They actually pulled the Chrysler up to my driveway and we compared the sound to the stock system that’s in the Bentley, and I don’t hear the difference.”
