Re: Archives

I understand where you are coming from on the expense and asking people to pay for old articles.
But people would bounce them if they could and then hopefully they get to new readers which leads even more hopefully to new subscribers.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Clever idea to use a pedal enclosure as a mic enclosure, though I have to wonder if it would sound better if the opening in front of the ribbon weren't partially blocked. It's definitely easier (and cheaper) to drill round holes than cut a larger opening. I wouldn't think the reflections caused by ...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Swart Amps decided to make a ribbon mic for recording guitar speakers. It's handmade in Wilmington, DE. I ordered one and got it. Really nice piece. Used it on a guitar cabinet and a piano yesterday at the studio and really liked it a lot. They are still running a $100 off introductory offer. http:/...

I forgot to ask any questions and no one mentioned Jim. Seems crazy, looking back.
Indeed.
If I was Jim I would have been at least a little shocked to read that.

Re: Interview Idea

I read all the Wilco/Tweedy/Loft stories and was scratching my head how there could be that much coverage and not even one mention of Jim Scott?
He worked on so many albums with them. Helped them find gear and develop/upgrade The Loft.

What gives?

I love Tape Op. I love Tape Op Magazine. I'm saying this 2 times before I ask, why is it so hard to get to archived articles at TapeOp.com? I just tried to get to one from a link that was posted on FB. I had to "sign in" to get to it then the whole article wasn't even there? It was a paywall. Maybe ...

Re: Basic home setup advice

Thanks for all the advice, everyone. The next question I'm running into is Thunderbolt vs USB. I'm running a Macbook Pro from 2015, so I can do Thunderbolt, but is it worth the extra cost for such a small setup? Lotta good info for you here. https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/usb-firewire-thun...

Thanks for all the advice. How do the Focusrite Clarrets compare?
They are pretty good for the money.
They don't allow you to add any processing on during recording the way UA does.

Re: Basic home setup advice

The UA stuff sounds mighty good and you get to use their plugs in record. Their "Legacy" plugs use a lot less processing power (helpful when you get close or maxed out) As suggested above you should check out one of their "instances" charts. Thunderbolt gives a Lot more instances. If your laptop is ...

Re: Mixing with the band there

My 80's band worked with a lot of great engineers in a lot of great studios. In hindsight some of the comments that came up were pretty laughable including one time when the drummer told Terry Manning he wanted his tom toms to sound "distant yet cannon like". I look at the "band at the mix" as a pro...

ATH-M50's. Every client that I let try mine loves them.
I like these and the less expensive ATH-M40's also.
They now come with 2 detachable cables (one coiled, one straight) which seem to head off the cable breaking.

I like them a lot. Clients like them too.

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

I read posts on here all the time about the 388 or the 688. I've owned tons of these machines including Fostex and Tascam and Otaris. I just don't get the romance. They aren't great machines. OP said he's done a lot of digital recording. Why not get better at it instead of going back to some small f...

Re: Recording Mac in 2019

Last year we were in a similar situation and ended up going with a custom iMac rather than the iMac Pro. We put a lot of RAM in it and we got a 2 space Thunderbolt 3 Sonnet PCIe card chassis for our Pro Tools card and the UAD card. It's been working great for us. https://i.imgur.com/1Y3uHVQ.jpg http...

Re: New Orleans style horn section

most of the "classic" sounds we love were done with one mic.

Most of the modern version of the classic sounds (Dap Kings) were done with one mic.

Get the best guys you can.
