Re: unhyped kick drum mic

Tony is showing great restraint by not commenting on the 57. :rofl: which as stated, can be perfectly fine for the right situation, but I would not call it "unhyped". It's more anti-hyped. The right situation being holding a window open that keep slamming shut. Or possibly beating an intruder. I ju...

Re: unhyped kick drum mic

Maybe all these unloved 112s can get switched over to tom duties. I always liked them there for rock & roll. That's a cool idea, I've never tried it. I could probably get it to sit somewhere out of the way on floor tom, positioning might be a little tricker on rack tom with that big balloon of a mi...

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

Like to hear 'em when you can give us a link! Here I am playing them on a gig. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If5Gv_QXBik Cool stuff. Those bells cut through the live mix nicely. I've often thought my next band would be a little more multi-instrumental, pop orchestra business and wondered about gl...

Re: "Getting it right on the way in": Channel strips, risk

I think some people above were kind of getting at this: There's nothing wrong with doctoring a signal on the way in if you know what you want and you trust what you're hearing/deciding. This is not channel strip dependent. I'd take a good pre and a dbx 160 over a lot of the prosumer all-in-ones. The...

Re: connecting turntable to console

Unless your turntable has a line out, it won't work right just to hook it up direct. ART used to make (still makes?) a little phono pre, and I'm sure there are others. Quality will vary, as will price. Small DJ mixers can often be found for next to nothing & will give you an adequate phono pre if y...

really? Isn't there some sort of impedance mismatch?
Oh yeah, good question. I haven't done this since I was in college, but it sounded fine then. Then again, it was 15 years ago and I was kind of dumb.

Re: connecting turntable to console

I would like to have a turntable in the studio and rather then setup a dedicated stereo with amp and speakers it seems smarter to connect to 2 channels on my Soundcraft Ghost Board but I assume i'll need some sort of phono preamp between the 2? Any workarounds or affordable solutions that sound dec...

You are an Ampeg man!

I've been lusting after those new Dr. Z Jettas inspired by the Stones era Jets.

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

It's hooked up to the tank in my Gemini II. I love the sound so far, but there is ground hum I am having trouble tracking down. I'll report back about the hum thing. I'm assuming it's just my old-as-fuck verb tank. That amp has seen some shit for sure. Do you have any other tanks to try it out on?

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

Boss DD7

After weeks of debating how to spend some nice Amazon gift cards, I decided it was time to go back to my favorite stereo delay line. It was tempting to get another fancy Earthquaker box, but I like something I can plug in to two amps and actually hear the echoes ping pong back and forth.

Have you gotten to put that Tank Driver through its paces yet? Seems like a cool new invention.

Re: dark condensers on the cheap for high SPLs

Shure ksm137 is great all around. Not dark, but definitely not bright for a small diaphragm condenser.

It's pretty much the exact same price as the venerated Oktava mk 012 which a lot of smart people love in that position as well.

This is just my subjective opinion. It's a venerable name, but also not always known for absolute sonic excellence, IMO.
It feels wrong to name and shame on such a prominent platform.
DM me if you really are serious about wanting to know.
You're way too polite.

chorus lead vocals and backing vocals went into a plate reverb panned hard left, and a hall reverb panned hard right.
That's pretty crazy.

You're describing my holy grail.
It's for sale. $200 obo, comes with some good cabling too.
Now I'm dying to know the manufacturer of this board.
