Re: Compact recording/preamp interface that doesn't require a computer hooked up to run?

Once upon a time,

There were these square devices called "consoles". These are what you want to get.

To-Day, they even sell some with a digital interface to computers, in case you
do end up wanting to record. But that interface is not needed to run the "console" by itself.

Cheers ;)

Try to get a Lexicon reverb unit. They never disappoint.

Re: How far apart do you like your near fields?

I put mine right next to the giant 55" monitor, so that is their distance between each other. The angle toward my head is just so that the Stereo field is larger than my head, but it does not yet get "unfocused", or where when you pan an instrument it seems to stay in the center a bit, instead of mo...

Re: Mastering Anxiety

I do triple check things before handing them to the next link in the chain,
but not with the anxiety.

Just out of thoroughness.

Re: Mixing template in Reaper

Hi, I usually do not have a set template for mixing an album, until I have seen for myself that indeed the tracks were all recorded identically, whether all at once, or as overdubs. I also discuss with the artist what they want to do with the album: Do they want all songs to have a similar basic ton...

1176 collection
Neve 1081 (or the API EQ 550/560 collection. I just like the Neve a little better)
EMT140

I have a bunch. Those are the ones I'd choose to not live without.
+1 on these choices.

Re: mixer channels right to left?

Hi,

I would go ahead and rewire those tape returns so they make more sense to you.

Otherwise you will need more Tylenol.

Re: Surround Sound Thread

... That said, I advise everyone here to at least familiarize themselves with immersive audio. It's the future of audio that quad never was :) Here are some tools to get started: http://www.ambisonictoolkit.net/documentation/reaper/ http://www.matthiaskronlachner.com/?p=2015 https://facebook360.fb....

Surround Sound Thread

Anyone doing this? I'm going to re-introduce myself into this black art.

Have two sets of consumer speakers, for now. If this takes off, then I'll get a proper set of monitors, like some JBLs.

Anyone here routinely do Surround?

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

Left Hand Ibanez JEM Jr. Amazing guitar.

And some new strings for all the other guitars, so they don't feel lonely. Along with a "E-Jack" tremolo tool,
for intonating the floyd rose type tremolos. Much easier now.

Get a speaker selector switch, like a Coleman.

Then, \the issue will be amplifying each set of speakers...
