Circling back to update my choices. I decided on the Apollo 8 Quad. Found a manufacturer refurbished B stock with full warranty and saved nearly $800! I demo'd Studio One for the full period and just this morning pulled the trigger on the Professional 3.2. During the trial, I threw up a mic to get s...

Thanks kslight and JWL. I looked at both the Focusrite and Motu units (forgoing the presonus interfaces in favor or Thunderbolt devices to go with the newly acquired but refurbed iMac). kslight, any input on the pre's from that 1248? JWL, I revisited the Clarett series from Focusrite after your post...

Help selecting an interface and DAW

I've been recording on a Roland VS2400 for about 10 years now and it's time to move up to something better. I'm considering either the UA Apollo 8 Quad or the Antelope Orion Studio. I was hoping to get feedback on the Orion vs the Apollo if anyone's head them both. I have a hard time finding any rea...

One of my favorite concerts was them at The Caravan of Dreams in Ft. Worth -- such a great show!

See if you can find any info about Steve Amadee from a band called Subdudes. He used a tambourine as a full drum kit and I seem to recall seeing his live setup having three mics.

I did a "solo" project a little while back that was a big departure for me artistically where I also made a conscious decision to change my process of recording. I wanted to act fast(er), be decisive, trust my instincts at a far deeper level, and myriad other little personal battles. As part of that...

Thanks for the input! I've not tried anything like that during tracking before and if I were to do so, it'd have to be really well thought out as most everything on our recordings is just the two of us. I often try to think ahead of what the rest of the song will require and try to track individual ...

JWL, I forgot to thank you for the compliment on the instrument captures. The acoustic guitar on the one song was a hail mary mic choice that somehow worked but the fiddle is more a matter of my wife's playing -- she's got pretty amazing tone and I just try to stay out of the way. However, it was ag...

Thanks for the offer Scott! I think I should take another pass at these mixes before I take advantage of your offer though. I'd like to be respectful on your time and I'm thinking I can do a little better on these with some new thoughts that've come from this post. But seriously, thank you.

Thanks for taking a listen and giving me some feedback. While I do some automated fader rides, I'm probably under utilizing this tool. I find that I tend to get a nice ball park/middle ground and then just move them +/- 1 to 2 db throughout the song. Maybe taking a more dramatic approach could help....

I do check my mixes on 2 different sets of headphones but I should go beyond that and try to create more environments. It's this very notion that sends me to car but you're right, it's damn cold lately. And MSE mastered my last project assuring me my mixes were fine. He's a great partner and I'm sur...

Well, here's a link to a couple of them but they've got some "home mastering" on them which may distort the picture. I threw them up so I could start booking a tour and needed current samples for bookers. Now I've got to get this thing finished in time to have merch! http://www.societyofbrokensouls....

For the sake of my own sanity, I'm going to try and "replicate" the more separated type of mix on these songs and see what happens. I'll look at being more aggressive with cutting frequencies as well as some of the other suggestions. But I also got to thinking, does anyone offer a tutoring type of a...
