Mick's - Mic

OK, I get to be first in. What Mic is Mick singing into on the new song/video? As a side note, this rocks with Dave, as the backup band. Also look at all the words he's still got, coming out of his brain! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN9YLLQl7gE&t=3s

ProTools Edit Window - issue

I've been in ProTools land since 1995. Yesterday after having an assistant work on a project, I was left with "THIS" (screen grab). I can't figure out how to get rid of it. NEVER have seen this before - EVER. Spent some time looking in the PT's manual, can't find anything. I don't know even what to ...

Re: MXR DynaComp issue in Logic Pro X

Stepping in for the last time. Transformers, transformers, transformers. Not more modern compressors. You need a “de-Spiker”. That is what a transformer does. Note all the “Classic Gear”. They all have at least two transformers. To give you that thick-warm tone, that all the kids are looking for. AR...

Re: MXR DynaComp issue in Logic Pro X

The issue with all modern Hi-Z 1/4” inputs on A/D interfaces, are that they are “really transparent”. In many cases that’s a good thing. In the old days you would good through a DI (transformer), and in the classic Neve console setup 6 more transformers before it even went to the tape machine. The t...

Re: ProTools-Auxes Pre-Fader/Post Mute

Hello Nick, Thanks for the info, I will look into it tonight and see if this works. I've been with P.T's since version 2 around 1992. Of course back then P.T's was at best a semi stable "Tape Machine". It's come a long was since then. I was mostly in studio design and technical then. The tape machin...

ProTools-Auxes Pre-Fader/Post Mute

I've been at this for 44 years. On Neve's, SSL's, Mackie's, plus the modern Midas M32. > When you select [PreFader] for the Aux sends, it's still [Post Mute]. In ProTools I can't find anywhere to set the setup to be [Post Mute]. I.E. If I cut the fader for an audio channel, I would also like it the ...

Hello Jon, a 1" space is more than enough. The most important factor is that the two walls never touch each other. Think building shift?? Secondly, I make the two walls out of different materials to produce different self resonant points for each wall. So on the existing gyprock wall add 1/2" rigid ...

Help converting GarageBand MIDI file to ProTools via Logic

Hello I have a MIDI piano file of a live performance I recorded with GarageBand. I need to move this over to a ProTools 10 session and fix some of the bad notes and do a final mix. There is only one REAL way to do this. Open the Garageband session in Logic (which I don't have). Then you can export t...

Waves-IR1- Presets Where are they

I've downloaded a number of 'Impulse Response' .wav files. I'm now in the process of "importing" them into my Waves IR1 folder. The process is working fine, however the .xps files are not been stored in the same folder as the .Wav files. They are going to the "User Presets" folder. (see URL link bel...

Audio masters at work!

Ah you young kids! Please check out the audio masters that recorded and mixed these records. Chris Thomas and Bob Clearmountain. In the world of sonic perfection it doesn't/didn't get much better than that. I have been lucky enough to have worked with both these "audio masters". Also the band themse...

Hello donny Neither of us were in the room with Eddie during those days, however I can guaranty that he never did "master mixes" at 7 1/2 ips. Yes, back in 1976 I assisted on sessions where we would make some quick 7 1/2 mixes, for the client, so that they could take it home to listen to. Cassettes ...
