Re: Help me design my rooms

Since your plan is to move I’d look into treatment that is not built in.

As you mentioned UA, you might look into the OX Box for part of your guitar recording. It’s pretty amazing.

Re: Help me design my rooms

the square live room is probably going to be difficult without some serious treatment. and if you don't already have it -- get this too-- https://www.amazon.com/Home-Recording-Studio-Build-Like/dp/143545717X that book is the best resource out there. I also would urge you to think about a one room s...

Re: Starting a small studio business

If you are going to charge money for your studio. 1. Keep the place clean. Nothing says "I don't really care about your music that much" like pizza boxes in the trash from the session before. 2. Stock up on incidental supplies. If you don't have a proper coffee rig you don't have a recording studio....

Re: Acoustic absorption for desk surfaces

How about a modified rubber floor mat that you could cut to fit all the surfaces? Good idea, but do you think rubber would be absorbent enough? My Be Quiet PC case has got some sort of acoustic padding on the inside panels, sort of like this but higher quality: https://www.newegg.com/silverstone-sf...

Re: Best vocal mic under 2K?

I got the WA 67 a week ago. Very solid piece. I'm currently on week 4 of six weeks of my left hand in a splint for a torn ligament and fracture so typing is kinda hard. I don't have a lot of mics at home for a proper shootout but I did compare it to my AT4060. I'm not that into the traditional shoot...

Re: Acoustic absorption for desk surfaces

Treating the ceiling above your desk/listening area is so much more important.

Re: Springsteen Letter to You- drum setup

I enjoyed the movie. Yes it is a private studio. The thing that was most interesting to me was that he's got Max and his kit closest to his vocal booth for the best visual communication. That's a pretty rare setup but I'm sure it's helpful. I have a couple friends in the band. Evidently they have al...

Re: Acoustic Space Simulator Reverb Plugins

I almost always do all ambiance on an aux.

For clarification UA's Capitol Chambers is not a room simulator.
It's a simulation of a sound fed to speakers, captured by microphones in specific chambers.

Re: R88 owners

For years I've used the Royer SF-12 (stereo ribbon) in a version of the Glynn Johns over the snare and measured the same distance from the snare as the "front" mic. I prefer it to the 'top/side' version. While the SF-12 is a great mic, the R88 is 'fuller' to me and works even better for me over the ...

Re: Best vocal mic under 2K?

Last November I was at a very well heeled studio in Tempe, AZ with a deep mic closet. I noticed a Warm Audio box in there w their version of the 251. Asked to put it up to check it out. Used it on some harmonies, some percussion OD's and some acoustic guitar. I really enjoyed singing on it. I got o...

Re: recreating demoes and "demo-itis"

I specifically ask artists I'm producing not to do demos. I request solo iPhone/Boom box recordings of the songs and also have them shared w band members/players so we can all hear "the songs". One artist complained and said I wouldn't "get it" w/o the harmonies. I said if that's the case your song ...

Re: 44 or 48 or 96?

I record 96/24 and that's what I like.

You mentioned that you have an Apollo.
I love the sound of UA plugs and I like how they work like my old analog gear but It's good to know that almost none of their plugs which are modeled after analog classics go beyond 48k.
