Re: Panel mount Neutrik (or other) TRS jack dimensions?

I believe that size is called "D" size. I might consider just cleaning the jacks with Deoxit and resoldering the connections with fresh solder. That might be all you need. Roger The solder points look good, I think mostly the tines that make contact with the ring and tip have loosened up and are no...

Panel mount Neutrik (or other) TRS jack dimensions?

Weird request if anyone is able.... I was testing out my snake which, granted, is a cheap old proco stage master that I've used for 15-20 years. Wanted to see what needs to be replaced as I will soon be getting some nice new patchbays and want to be confident of my signal chain. Surprisingly, all th...

Re: Truth time- incredibly dumb things you did when you didn't know any better

I've done and still do plenty of stupid things. I think I just worry about it less now as long as it works. Lets say around 2000... First digital band recording I ever did I plugged a 421 directly into a compressor, right into an interface with no preamp. I really didn't understand what a preamp did...

Re: R88 owners

I've had an r88 for around 7 years. I don't remember what my plan or purpose was when I bought it. I don't tend to do xy overheads. I think I wanted a nice room mic that could be used for, like, chamber ensembles, and also as a drum room mic, or for mid/side duties. I definitely still use it for all...

Re: Lost in the wilds of lo/mid-fi -- your thoughts please.

A little late to this thread and there's already been a lot of solid advice given. I was mixing an album I recorded a couple years ago and while I was kind of happy with it, I felt like it was missing some special sauce that I just wasn't seeing because I was too close to the sound. I ended up getti...

Re: Doors?

So, I made double semi-super doors for my garage studio. It was a 2 leaf system so that was what was appropriate, but even one of them blocks out *most* of the sound. Each door is a 1 3/4 thick solid core exterior prehung door. I special ordered them because the dimensions were not standard and also...

Re: DI bass and guitar

PERSONALLY, and with the gear I have, I've been happiest when there are as few steps between the instrument and the mic pre as possible. I either go DI into my LA610 when doing digital, which doesnt get dirty or forward in a useful way but still sounds amazing, OR direct into my 388 when going to ta...

Re: Neve flavor

I've been playing with a CAPI VP28 lately and am pretty impressed by that on everything I've paired it with - vocals, drums, guitars, ribbon mics, condersers.... I've had 2 of these for a few years. They really sound fantastic. I generally put them on kick and snare but I've also done guitar amps a...

Re: pan your drums out of the center

I'm doing a Beatles cover right now (Good Morning, Good Morning) and am mixing it kind of like, or least inspired by the stereo mix I grew up with. I know people have issues with those for whatever reason but I love them. Obviously, part of that involves hard panning the whole kit to one side (the l...

Re: PCI expansion chassis for RME interface?

Just following up here in case anyone is curious down the road. I emailed RME today and they got right back to me saying that they've used expansion chassis like that with no additional latency so it looks like I'm good to go!

Re: pan your drums out of the center

The true reason I do it is that it helps me retain focus on the mix. If I have the drums audience, it distracts ME. Therefore I'm not doing me best on listening to the WHOLE MIX because I'm distracted by the hats on the right side. I owe it to the song and my clients to not let something so simple ...

Re: pan your drums out of the center

These days (meaning the past few years) I almost always hard pan the OHs, which are often Recorderman-ish. Last recording my band did I decided I wanted to add some some tom mics to the rack toms and I had to premix them in with the overheads. I didnt think it through and I didnt pan everything wide...

If / when you don upgrade, I recommend ethernet based audio interfaces.

I am using Focusrite RedNet2 with Dante. Amazing. And I still can use my old 2008 Mac Pro with it, and my new MacBook Pro 2019, together.
How do you go ethernet into your macbook pro? Mine only has thunderbolt ports.
