The not so little anymore “Lil Wayne” has just released the 4th version of his dedication mix tape series. The kid, who started out with only a few bars of lyrics in Cash Money songs years ago, watched himself rise to adult fame with his terse punch lines and raspy delivery.
Unfortunately, the “Dedication 4” fails to showcase any originality or direction in his song making abilities.

What makes a great vocal recording? Is it the mic or the person singing? Is it the method of recording or the software, or is it the recording engineer?

We know that we need a mic, quality cables, and a way to isolate the sound in order to capture the true essence of the vocal, preferably in a vocal booth. But let’s turn it up a notch.
Introducing the Auralex MudGuard. This is easily mounted directly on the mic stand and provides further isolation of the vocal performance by creating a curved mini shell around the mic. This eliminates noise bleed …

So, what’s the purpose of a mobile studio anyhow? Is it merely a huge ego-boosting vehicle on wheels that celebrates Unique Squared and its awesomeness? Well, yes – but it’s so much more than that. I’ve watched this thing grow from just a baby (a rented RV) into a full grown behemoth; this is an actual studio. You couldn’t fit the London Philharmonic in there before, but now this is a full-blown studio on wheels.
I still didn’t answer the question, though, “what’s the purpose?” Well, here’s the first clue – it’s a mobile studio. So, in essence, this will be a mobile way for Unique Squared to tour the US and record music. Then, for you, this means you’ll have a new outlet for discovering new music.
Let’s pick just one genre – hip hop. Now, this bus will afford them folks at Unique Squared the ability …

The first track, “The Maschines”, is one of the two featured tracks on the Unique Squared A3C Recap video and the second is a brand new track being released today called “Big Deal”.
