I've really not heard anything negative about VRM so far except that it won't replace a proper monitoring environment and it would be nice to model some far-field speakers. Very interested in this tech and I will more than likely either buy the $100 VRM box or a Pro 24 DSP after I move in March. Th...

You're really tying your hands if you can't mic the back. I've tried just about everything with uprights and I always go back to it. If moving the piano is out of the question can you get a PZM taped to the wall behind it? If that can't be done I'd try an SDC above the piano pointing at the space b...

Tips for recording upright piano needed.

I'd like some tips/ideas on mics to use and mic placement for micing my upright piano. The stickler is, I cannot move it away from the wall, so micing the soundboard is out of the question (room size keeps me from swinging the piano out, plus is could very well damage the carpet that's underneath it...

FS: Rode NT1000 and SM2 Shockmount

For sale, a Rode NT1000 mic in great working condition. The unit has some scuff marks from using it with a different shock mount. These aren't scrapes, and the metal body is smooth to the touch. It's merely cosmetic. The mic also comes with the SM2 Shockmount in it's box. Asking $190 Paypal'd and sh...

Zoon H4n - does it recharge NiMH batteries?

I found this H4n review on Amazon.com, where the reviewer states: "I also like the little things I'm still discovering, like when I put Ni-MH batteries in and then plugin in the adapter it recharges the batteries." http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A1OVGDBBRMMVYQ/ref=cm_cr_pr_auth_rev?ie=U...

The various mentions of duct tape in this thread reminded me of the old days. Back in my "punker" days, when I was young, playing in bands, I do remember duct tape being on all kinds of stuff. Not only drums, but holding guitars together, and keeping straps on guitars, taping mics to stands (bloody ...

FS: Taylor 810 w/ LR Baggs iBeam active pickup.

Up for sale is my 2000 Taylor 810 with an LR Baggs iBeam active pickup that was installed by a local pro luthier. Comes with Taylor case. Only minor nicks here and there, nothing that really breaks the finish. No cracks or structural problems. It's in quite brilliant condition. Action is very low. T...

Be sure to take a listen to Agent Orange "Living in Darkness". Often the 'sound' of a lot of that stuff is just what had to be done based on what they had. On Living in Darkness, the band had all their gear stolen, so Mike Palm played guitar thru some sort of bass amp i believe that was in the studi...

I'm still on the hunt for this sound, but now I'm going for the source. Looking for the right guitar. The 000 body size seems to be a good start. I've been reading about the Martin 000-15 a lot, but I don't have any local stores that carry it, so I can't even try the thing. Anyone ever play one or s...

Solutions for in-wall cable door between garage and room

My studio room is adjacent to my garage. I'd like to put something in the wall that lets me run cables into the garage thru that whole. It also needs to close up and be insulated as well though. As I'll most likely only be using it during the warmer months. What type of solutions are available for t...
