Mr G is one of those studio gurus....and you have no idea what he can do with the toys he has. Just last week he manufactured a word for a jazz song he was mixing. The singer left the word out all together, and he has it being sung on the final product. Even he, as an old pro, was impressed.

There is software that will allow you to tune, edit, (time or words) or even replace one voice with another. I know one producer who sings a part, then replaces his voice with that of the “singer” (who isn’t too good). That way the song is in tune, in rhythm, and with “heart”. Its the only way they got the album done. (and no, I will not tell you who it is)

With the amount of material out there with Mel’s voice on it, this tape could be made up out of whole cloth if someone wanted to.

“Funny that they came out after she reneged on a court approved agreement with Gibson.”

Where I come from, we do not glorify men who say that the mother of their children should be raped by a bunch of N-bombs and then punch the mother of their children in the face.

Perhaps, other people from other places have other standards.

“...is child’s play compared to what is out there for the pros...”

I was aware of that. It wasn’t all that difficult (if you had the right equipment & experience) back when recording was all-analog. Since we’ve gone digital, there has been NO LIMIT to what could be done with enough computer power, time, and intent.

Back in 1985, I looked at a sampling digital synthesizer at Radio Shack. It could record any instrument, and transform it into nearly any other instrument. For the few things you couldn’t fake, you could buy samples. It is probably child’s play to do things like that, now. I’m just tone-deaf enough that there is not any point in my trying to play with that stuff, now. On the other hand, I’ve got a perfectly good ocilloscope, which would probably let me do it anyway. If there is a will, there is a way.

He didn't say she should. He said she was dressed like she would. Where I come from Mommy's don't dress like they're selling it.

Anyway there are some experts that think the tapes are altered.

“Mel Gibson’s soon-to-be ex-wife, Robyn, has written a sworn declaration on behalf of Mel, saying he has never physically abused her or any of their children in the 28 years they were married ... TMZ has learned.”

Sorry, I’m a bit confused. How is it that this morally upstanding man who wishes the mother of his child to be raped by a gang of N-Bombs, punches that woman in the face and makes a statement to law enforcement that the “Jews are responsible for all the wars.” could have a wife while he is making babies with another woman?

Do you have any experts that say that it was not Gibson on those tapes and that it was not Gibson who told the police that the “Jews are responsible for all the wars “

You are posting on a thread about that very thing. Watch the expert in the video. Good Lord, man! do you read anything?

Don't count on it. I remember Milli Vanilli. ;)

Hmmm. I think I've dated myself.

They don't call it “studio magic” for nothing.

As for your last paragraph, oh, yes indeed. Including loud and angry voices, and the whole bit.

Take down verbatim what he’s supposed to have said on these tapes and then do a search against movie scripts with varying degrees of stringency. It shouldn’t be too difficult to see if there are any hits.

Have you never meet or known a mean drunk? Some of the nicest people, who one would never suspect of such behavior, have inner demons that they have under control but once liquored up lose control of them. And this also apys to those with Alheimzers disease.

I have personally experienced or heard of both and it is shocking how uncommon it is.....

It's just most people who know friends and family members who are aflicted don't launder their problems in public....

Or exploit them for profit....

It was a setup alright, but Mel’s camp is not denying he said it. At least not yet.

Tape engineers in the radio studio of Roe Conn, Chicago liberal talk show host, were busy little bees. Thanks to their handiwork, Roe's been playing tapes of Mel Gibson's "domestic abuse" spoutings and expletive-laden sentences from Rod Blago's federal trial evidence tapes spliced together to make it appear they're conversing with each other.

So anything is possible.

Roe and his co-host sidekicks think the results are hilarious....however, I find this schtick unfunny and sick.

Sure, there are mean drunks out there.

However, mean drunks who say that “all the wars are caused by the Jews.” and beat on the mother of their children are no only mean drunks, but POS human beings.

You mentioning sampling brought back memories of when I bought my first sampler, MIDI controller, and 1/2” eight channel deck and mixer back in 1986. I don’t want to admit how much I spent on it. OK I will it was over 10K. LOL

I came across some old Electronic Musician mags from that time period a few months ago and they are fun bathroom reading. Samples sold off floppy diskettes and the like . . .

All that stuff is dead and gone except for the Boss Effects Pedals That Will Not Die and the Morley AC powered chorus pedal which acts as a dual doorstop and conversation piece.

Every day this week has come with a new, expletive-laced rant from Mel Gibson.

And just happened to arrive in the lap of CNN Entertainment Tonight & Radar Online...drip, drip, drip...everyday another tape. No, that couldn't have been planned. /s

And I believe the reason it’s all gone is because the new stuff is easier, cheaper, and faster. Even if it is “Made in China.”

That, of course, assumes they even make it to trial.

“Mel Gibson is a racist sexist pig, and his glory days are over forever!”

Oh, that's right, innocent until proven guilty!

IF the tapes are unmodified and actually him talking to this women, you might be right. If they're faked, he may not have said ANY of what he's reported to have said.

“I hope the young wife gets as big a settlement as the old wife did.”

Not wife, girltoy/babymama. I do hope the babies get what they're due from their father.

“Even without the tapes, authorities have the photos from the girl’s dentist of how Mel messed up her mouth with a few punches to the face. The dentist will testify.”

Was it Mel who messed up her mouth? Has he admitted it? AFAIK (and I could be mistaken since I don't follow celebrity gossip) all the dentist can really testify to is that her mouth got messed up, somehow. Unless he was there when it happened, of course.

Accusation is not proof. Even if he has admitted it, that isn't proof, either.

“Perhaps, other people from other places have other standards.”

Perhaps other people actually wait until they can find out the truth. That is often something in short supply in break-up situations, particularly among celebrities and their hangers-on. Mel MAY be everything you say. He may not be any of it. I'm waiting for the scales to stop bouncing.

IF you're right about him, he needs, as a minimum, a good butt-kicking and financial plucking. If she's faking all this, she needs to lose those babies, and to get nothing else from him, also as a minimum. From what I know of the ways people treat each other in this kind of situation, there is blame enough to go around, and should be appropriate punishment for both of them.

ONE event with the cops while drunk makes him a POS? Very low bar to set for judgment, Hope you are willing to keep and be judged by the same minimum standards in your life."

...and beat on the mother of their children are no only mean drunks, but POS human beings."


.

Facts not in evidence. He is ALLEGED to have beat her and is based on TAMPERED evidence by a women who has quarter billion dollar incentive to lie, forge evidence and drag a(flawed) man's life through the mud

I'd wait for more facts before making just a damning statement. Bet we could investigate YOUR life (or Mine for that matter) and find someone willing to bring slanderous charges against us as well... If we were worth smearing for big bucks....
