My room kind of sucks, but with the Rode NT1 I've found that I kind of like using it hung right over the drummers head to get a snapshot of what the drummer hears. I hate my D112 so I've gone to using a C1000 on the kick, a couple of the Oktava MK-012 overhead and a stupid 57 on the snare and seriou...

F/S 1967 Traynor YC-810 "Big B" Bass Cabinet

8 Marsland 8 ohm 10" speakers in a sealed enclosure. 400 watts @ 8 ohms. Obviously I cannot ship this cab so I'm looking for someone in the Minneapolis/ St. Paul area. I'm looking to get $400 but will consider reasonable offers. This is one big mean bass cab! Lot's of fun to be in the room with it!

When is the mix done.......A question I ask myself way too much these days. On a recent project with a band that had no experience recording we captured 9 songs, everything live (bleed and all) As I've been mixing I discovered that the number they like the most is the first song I mixed within the f...

Maybe this will help you, I have the same latency problem (Pro tools M powered on a pc using a Delta 1010 for my interface) My solution on the cheap is to send the mix out 1 & 2 (no vox in that mix) and send it to the headphone amp via foldback.....As the vox is coming in (to be recorded) as the sig...

I bought the M-Audio Delta 1010 like 5 years ago because I couldn't afford to get into Pro Tools with an 888 or a 192...the 1010 came bundled with Vegas for like $500... Vegas worked, but I wanted to get into Pro-Tools so when the M-Powered came out it was easy to afford the switch. For the price, I...

Try the book "Audio in Media" by Stanley Alten....A good sort of academic book that describes frequency relationships well.

Direct Out / Insert Cable?

Anyone happen to know how to make them? I saw them in the AMS catalog on page 17, and at $10 per, I think I'd rather make a few. I just can't think of how they are wired....a little help?

Re: DAT in Minneapolis

I don't have one, but the folks at American Pro Audio can rent you one, and if you get it over the weekend (Friday-Monday) I believe it's only an overnight charge.

Re: Midi on an mbox?

Uhm...now I feel like I may be off topic...but I thought that Pro Tools had a way of calculating latency...maybe not LE, but doesn't HD have the capability?

Re: I need to get some basic recording gear

Heck, your cassette deck records...your VCR records...got a minidisc recorder?....the basics are all around you...get a little mixer, learn signal flow, proper levels and how to overdub using what you have....a little imagination can lead to alot of learning.

Re: What do you hate about modern records?

1) Overuse of loops...
2) Lack of imaginative instrumentation...
