Thanks for all your "input", no pun intended!! I feel a bit better about this adventure. And of course I have think I need to go for the Oatmeal Stout, although as with any proper stout it must be allowed to warm up a bit before drinking. And I shall try and refrain from giving any of the gear a sip...

converting tracks from adats to daw: Help!!

I am meeting a friend at his home studio to convert some adat tracks into his computer (specifically into Reaper). He is planning on using a presonus firestudio to convert the tracks. my questions are: 1. Will this work? 2. Can I send 16 tracks (two adats) into the firestudio/ If so, how? Do I use 8...

I think your problem is the parallel walls. Perhaps a heimholtz diffusor would be a good option for this room, as well as maybe making some ceiling panels out of 3'x4' plywood and hanging them at angles from the ceiling to break up the parallel flutter occuring between the ceiling and the floor. I w...

Thanks for all the input, everyone. To answer some of the subsequent questions, I currently record my own bands and other local acts, so I probably won't be doing a lot of ITB composing. Rather, I will be using my DAW to replace my current mixing board/adat set up. I would still prefer to use real e...

which ITB system best for beginners?

Okay, I am finally getting over my resistance to moving "ITB" and I am wondering of the collective vast experience on this MB can point me in the right direction. Although Pro Tools may be the best known software, what in your opinion is the easiest/best software for a novice? I have had many years ...

Although, I did make a modular box out of 2x4's and plywood and stuffed the hell out of it by stapling comforters to the sides and ceilings. This might tame the bass enough to get a useable drum and bass take with minimal bleed.

Bass is difficult to fully isolate because the waves are so big and can find their way through most rooms and materials. I would try to get a D.I. signal and use headphones while tracking with drums, then go back ond overdub the bas later with speakers and mics if the D.I. sound isn't enough. I am n...

That design looks like it will work fine. Mine looks more like a side view of a saw blade, with the depth at the end an even four inches and the width of each "blade" a different length. I went from 2" to 10" in varying intervals and did not repeat the same length twice. The width is measured at the...

I built one of these in my studio.I't about 12' wide and 8'tall. On the advice of an experienced audio designer, I made each slot a different length. It was his opinion that spreading similar sizes apart offered a more even diffraction to the whole room, rather than focusing similar length waves in ...

In my jazz band we have used a Sennheiser 421 on the bari with excellent results. I put it about a foot above the bell, pointing slightly across it rather than directly into it. The sound I have been getting is full and brassy, but still has that nice "wood-y" reed sound. Good luck!

IMHO, The ART Tubefire is a pretty decent unit, 8 chennels of tube pre amp using an individual tube for each channel. And it lightpipes right into your adat. I have used it many times for tracking right to tape with pretty good results. it has pretty good control over the sound and when the tubes ar...

Monitor placement in relation to walls

I know there is an ovarabundant wealth of information out there, but I want some practical input. I have a piar of Mackie MR-8's. How far from the walls should they be in order to breathe the full audio spectrum fully? Right now my station and monitors are pulled about 8" from the back wall, but I a...

There is no law that says you can't have different heads on different drums. If a coated head works better on the floor tom ( which is what I have found, it just sounds "warmer" at lower tensions) go with that. Ultimately, your ears will tell you what will work best for you. Also, I am sure you are ...

Okay, I need to clarify a couple things here. First, when I say I got a great deal I mean that I bought a whole rack of useful gear ( including the rack) for a price too good to refuse. I would have paid what I did for the rack, power conditioner, and reverb units alone, the fact that there was a Co...

What do I do with these?

her's the deal. I just got a behringer (no snickering, please) MDX 4400 4 channel gate and a 4400 Com-Pro 4 channel compressor for a great price. Thing is, I am not sure how to best incorporate these into my studio set up. i have seen them in live applications many times, but I am unsure about their...
