Thanks for your answer. But I am more looking for "illustrative" mixes (assuming this word exists :) ), that is, mixes in which one can point things for me to specifically listen to. In a sense I don't mind if they sound good or bad - all that counts is that I can pinpoint what makes the sound I am ...

Can anyone recommend some "reference" mixes?

Hi everybody. This thread is a clone of ons I started on GS.com. In more than a week I only had one answer, so I am trying my luck here... I am discovering the joys of mixing right now and I need to have my ears trained a bit. My problem is that when I listen to a given song I can't isolate each sin...

Re: Black Lion Micro ADC (aka "Swallow")?

Mornin' They're here! Did anyone give an ear to these? I like the idea of having simple gear such as that. And if it is half as decent as what they claim, I could give in to another G.A.S attack :) ... Could any Tape Op contributer review them? Hello and congrats! I think you mean.." Sparrow".... :...

I just re-read your auction. "The only thing I really liked to record with this mic is violin. " might sound a bit... unattractive? What's the use of a mic that is stated to be good only to record strings? Most people looking in this price range would rather buy a proclaimed * Highly versatile thoug...

Mint condition, saw very little use, absolutely no high SPL, and had a happy life so far in a non-smoking environment. On sale now to buy a Sputnik. Pictures are here . My price is 229.00? (street price is about 300? here in France) but I'll consider any decent offer. Shipping fee is to be discussed...

This may not be what you want to hear [...] This is exactly what I want to hear/read! I need advice, so I appreciate your answer. If the consensus here is that I should wait until I have the money to buy serious stuff, then I'll think twice before buying anything. That's mostly why I wrote that I w...

Good Morning. Here's my setup for recording my voice: Mics: sm57, sm81 (yes, I do!) and M-Audio Solaris. Preamp: Moded PreSonus MP20 - swapped the input opamps for LT1357. The sound is very clear, detailed, with not much coloration. A/D: M-Audio Firewire Solo (* Cough * Don't blame - I'm going to ch...

Re: M-Audio Solaris Mod?

Man, I almost won a pair of M-Audio Solaris on Ebay for $230! but some douche bag jumped in at the last minute and got it for $232. I don't remember crying that hard in a long time. Not really, but seriously. $232 for a pair?!? Wow, I got mine for $195 and I thought that was a bargain already... :c...

M-Audio Solaris Mod?

Hi.

I have a brand new Solaris (that I like a lot btw). Reading about it here and there, it seems to me that the capsule is pretty good and I suspect that improving the electronics could build up an even nicer piece of gear.

Does anyone know of a modification I could do?
