Re: How important is it to mic the bottom of a snare?

I mic the bottom all the time. As I'm getting a huge percentage of my drum sound from the overheads the bottom mic gives me something that the overhead or the top mic does not. Compressing the bottom mic with fast attack/slow release can impart a lot of space, almost like a reverb. If you have a tra...

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

My buddy the late Lou Whitney (interviewed in issue 98 of Tape Op by Vance Powell) had a studio in Springfield, MO and he had to pretty much take everybody that came in so in addition to working with a lot of national bands (Wilco, Dave Alvin, Robbie Fulks) he recorded a whole lot of local bands too...

Re: Doors?

The Gervais book is so valuable.
There's just so much good info in there.
I don't know how anybody could pass up such a great overview.

Re: Need Help With DIY Diffuser Design...

I know its not as much fun as making it, but what about something lightweight and ready-made like this? https://www.gikacoustics.com/product/2a-alpha-series-acoustic-foam-panel-diffusor-absorber-2/ and you can mount it like a picture frame so if you move, you can take it with you. you could also tr...

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

the most popular flats are the TI (Thomastik-Infeld) because they are the brightest, longest-lasting, and lowest tension (roundcore w/ silk underlay). However they are very expensive. Although with flats you basically never need to change strings unless you break one, so it could be a lifetime inve...

I got my late buddy Lou Whitney's Vocal Stresser.
Super excited about it. Loved using it at his place in Springfield, MO.

Re: Chairs?

The chair you linked to above seems to be a cheaper version of the eChair from the Phantom Focus guy. We tried a pair and got rid of our Herman Miller chairs and bought 2 more. Thanks for the info--I'm wondering which seat size you went with. I'm 6 feet tall but with short legs for my height, so I'...

Re: Chairs?

Thanks for the tips so far. The Aeron seems to be the most common recommendation, and I grew up on chairs like that old Steelcase & have a nostalgic fondness for them--and they're definitely built to last. I was hoping I might hear from someone with experience with the "Stealth Studio Engineer's Ch...

The archive subscription is really pretty cheap, and you can just do it for a couple of months or whatever and binge-read a bunch of old articles. I did that a couple years ago and it was well worth the few bucks it cost.
The big drag is being unable to share the articles.

Pro Tools Expert has probably the most in depth Using Luna series of videos out there so far. In this post they have included their 1st of 3. https://www.pro-tools-expert.com/production-expert-1/2020/4/6/universal-audio-luna-a-tour-of-the-new-recording-system?mc_cid=6be1f987ea&mc_eid=f0141ed989&form...

Anybody dive into Luna yet?

I downloaded it and then forgot about it.
I had a bunch of remote overdubs to do yesterday to stereo mixes sent to me.
Would have been the perfect place to start.

Anybody try it yet?

Re: Coronavirus Plans (what are yours?)

We are locked out of our commercial recording studio. All of us are doing what we can at home. Like everybody else my calendar has been wiped clean. I did start working with a guy I always wanted to work with sending stuff back and forth online and that's been pretty fun. I brought my home rig a lit...

Re: Live Off the Floor in a Small Room

Nice one.

If the players are good, it works and it goes together quick.

Bravo.
