Re: Ribbon dilemma.

My 205 sounded great before the ribbon started sagging. After it started sagging it still sounded great, but anything that could make it thunk would make it thunk, including floor vibration, as I used it often for drum OH. I haven't gotten around to figuring out how to retension myself as that feels...

Re: How long does everyone keep the boxes your gear came in?

Problem is I usually keep all the stickers/manual/warranty/extra plug bullshit in the box too, so I’d have to go through that too... I finally consolidated and moved all my manuals and warranty shit to one little storage bin a few months ago. I don't think I'll ever use any of them, but seeing them...

Re: How long does everyone keep the boxes your gear came in?

Ok. Thanks all for the reassurance that I am a) not the only one, and b) not being irresponsible by getting rid of some.

How long does everyone keep the boxes your gear came in?

Cleaning out my storage shed, and thinking about recycling the boxes my JBL monitors came in. Bought over 10 years ago. Waaaaay past warranty. And they take up a bunch of space. I tend to keep boxes for things that cost more than a little money, in case I ever sell it or I move or something. But I d...

Re: unhyped kick drum mic

I personally love an re20 or sm7 for most natural sounding to my ears kick. Unfortunately my re20 has been in need of maintenance for a while and I dont currently own an sm7 myself. I tend to use my Senn 421 the most now. It's got a little exaggeration going on but nothing like the beta52 that my o...

Re: Tascam 388 Muddy Recording

Also... regarding demag-ing: I dont know if you do this regularly, but I've noticed that sometimes my demag will be done wrong (by me), somehow, and everything will be muddy. The solution is just to do it again and usually that fixes it. I dont know what it is about an improper demag that is doing t...

One producer we worked with gave each band member 3 poker chips before the mixing started.
These were to be used for mix comments.

"For each song"? we asked

"For the entire album"

It turned out to be a very good technique.
Fantastic idea!

Re: Recording Mac in 2019

Does anyone know of any specific downsides to the new Mac Mini? It looks like I can max out the ram at 64GB and get a 6-core i7 processor for still less $$ than an iMac with half that ram, and WAYYY less than a mac pro trashcan of similar abilities. If this sonnet thing works out that could solve my...

Re: Recording Mac in 2019

Hi, Hey Nick! Yeah, I'm running logic so dont need to worry about any PT stuff. I did just buy a new laptop in the fall and got logic x on it which seems to be working fine, though I haven't done any heavy projects on it yet. Actually using a zoom h6 as an interface for it and it's working very nic...

Re: Recording Mac in 2019

we got a 2 space Thunderbolt 3 Sonnet PCIe card chassis for our Pro Tools card and the UAD card. That's interesting. I didnt know about those sonnet chassis things. Maybe a good first step would be to get one of those so I can use my monitors and RME Multiface with my new laptop. I dont think the l...

Recording Mac in 2019

I looked around GS, but the arguments are already way too specific and I cant find a more general thread... I'm *thinking* about upgrading my studio computer. While my old ass quad core cheese grater tower is FINE, it can get sluggish and I'm afraid that it doesn't have that many years/months left. ...

Any advice on packaging? I don't want my sloppily recorded rough tracks wiped clean by an over enthusiastic DHS employee.
That I dont know. My experience is that it's more relaxed than I think, but maybe people with more experience can chime in.

Re: What musical thang didja work on today/night?

Played an outdoor show last night in a misty Utica (covered stage). Had no idea what to expect and it turned out to be pretty amazing. Great community there. Playing another outdoor show this evening in Winooski VT (we're on tour) There are so many sonic issues possible with being outdoors but I rea...
