That combiner thingie is good for snare, and also backing vox if tracks are limited.
I didn't see a polarity flip though. I'd always wonder.

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

It's funny, right before this thread popped up I was thinking about this from the completely other side of this question. As a drummer who almost exclusively records himself and has listened to thousands of hours of his own drumming as mediated by microphones in the headphones I came up with the fol...

Re: 16 more channels of analog compression

I appreciate the offer Alex, but I can't afford anything right this minute. I'm trying to compile a list to provide to loved ones who require exact brands/models and expected price ranges in order to shop for me. It is also possible that I will do some extreme low-balling on ebay, hopefully not to T...

Re: 16 more channels of analog compression

Thanks for the thoughts so far. It's helping me. Just thought I'd chime back in on a couple things. Plugins aren't an option. I record to an Alesis HD24XR through an Allen & Heath GL2400-24. I guess having 24 channels (what I got, plus 16) would be kinda ridiculous. I'm recording in 12 channel mode,...

New squishy parts for old microphones

Hello, I have a bunch of old, dynamic mics and make a knocking sound when you move them. Some of them make a knocking sound if you hit them with too much SPL. Looking inside, the foam and rubber inside seems degraded. Is there a single source to get these bits for various mics? I have AKG D321's fro...

Newbie wants to play samples off a windows computer

Hi Kind Folks, My daughter wants to experiment with playing samples off her computer via her midi keyboard controller. I don't know the first thing about this, I intentionally steered clear of midi in the 80's (and since) because it just seemed super complicated and like a vast arena in which to spe...

16 more channels of analog compression

Hi Kind and smart folks of the TOMB, I'm finding myself wanted at least 16 more channels of Analog compression. I probably won't buy that many, at least not at first, but I'd thought I'd ask you all what you'd be looking for. I currently have a DBX 166 (my first compressor from the 80's) a DBX 266XL...

Re: FS: 57 Issues of Tape Op - 2008 to 2019

I can't help thinking that if it had just been a different number of issues it would have sold better. There are some real 57 haters on this board.

Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear and enlightenment, man

It looks like it does, but eeeeesh, why even take the chance? That 5 string looks like it cost a fortune. Let's hope vvv's right and it's a closet. yeah it's a fodera, likely in the 10k region on price $9k with all those door dings in the back. This is your chance to pick up a "player's" bass at a ...

Re: Coronavirus Health Precautions for Studios

There has been research on the topic how strong people are infectuous who show no symptoms. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7219423/ Reading comp isn't my strong suit, but a quick skim of that made it sound like it was a study of one asymptomatic (but cv positive) person who came into ...

As for the bass I agree, amp, slight overdrive, pick. Not a ton of lows, almost no highs, some good gritty mids.
My first thought was quiet guitar amp. Which would kinda give you that eq profile you describe.

Re: Cabling: What's the cheapest 24 channel TRS snake you'd buy?

I'm not that into the sound of the rolloffs where I'd buy a special cable for dialing it in. I usually pick the cleanest, loudest sounding cable and then eq it with the volume or tone on the guitar, the amp, the mic placement, etc., etc. I only pick a rolled off [to me] sounding cable if I know I'm ...

Re: Cabling: What's the cheapest 24 channel TRS snake you'd buy?

Gotta ask: To the extent you hear differences, are they qualitative? Quantifiably better or worse? Have you A-B'd? (ABX'd?) Lemme note that I think differences needn't always be necessarily audible - feel/response and even confidence are certainly valid concerns. You haven't heard differences in gu...
