Re: the return of the ubertar ribbon mic

I'm still down for two if you're sharing. If not, I more than understand. I'll go for whatever design you think is best. My primary uses will probably be drum overheads and percussion (but for fairly quiet, low pitched, sources). I've never had a ribbon mic, ever, so I have no idea what's best.

Re: Looking for mixer to pair with Fostex R8

Does anyone know if one of those huge Allen & Heath 40 channel GL2800's can be easily made smaller? It seems like it could just be a matter of unscrewing something and disconnecting a ribbon cable to bring it down to 16-24 channels. Is that something a hack like me could manage? I really don't need ...

Re: Looking for mixer to pair with Fostex R8

do you record by yourself 4 or less inputs at at time? or are you recording 5-8 tracks? i ask because you can get away with a 4 buss machine if you're recording by yourself. the fostex machines have a feature where you plug inputs into Input 1-4, and leave 5-8 empty. when you are tracking those 5-8...

Re: Looking for mixer to pair with Fostex R8

Any particular A&H or Soundcraft mixers I should be looking for? Aren't some way better than others? Seems to be a buyer's market for used Analog mixers these days.

Looking for mixer to pair with Fostex R8

Hi folks, I'll try to keep this brief. I bought a Tascam M-1600 a while ago to pair with my Fostex R8. At first I thought it was a great match because I really like the feature set, the auxes, the busses, the D-sub out, and the -10 standard on the outs (iirc), for the most part works seamlessly with...

I can't remember ever coming out on top when I had a disagreement with a FoH guy as talent.

Most sound-guys are dicks.
Not that I disagree, but you usually don't get better sound by pissing them off from the get go.

Re: Death by Audio “Echo Master” vs Voco-Loco as vocal chain ?

I was always under the impression that FOH guys hated it when talent shows up with those things, but I could be way off. I haven't done FOH for years. (Decades?!)

Re: Waddaya's workin' on this Forf weekend?

I recorded this in honor of July 4th, 2019. http://www.snarlnet.com/BOOM.mp3 It's very weird. Recorded on Fostex 8-track. I don't feel like it made the jump to digital very well. It sounded so much better monitoring straight out of the mixer. Any tips for encoding something with so much low end rumb...

Re: the return of the ubertar ribbon mic

You're including a custom transformer for the $50 price? That's amazing. When you said motor, I thought you just meant the ribbon suspended in the magnet. I'll go 2.5 micron for $50 (x2).

Re: Speaker switcher recommendations

In college I made one out of 3 parallel pairs of household wall switches. Screwed to a piece of plywood. This was after my Hafler power amp. I figured the Hafler could sort out the impedances and stuff. Just flip on the speakers you want. Kitchen, living room, bedroom "studio". It lived on top of my...

I'm confused. What are you selling? I'm interested, but not clear what you're offering exactly.

Re: Is my situation condusive to a Monitor puchase?

The day I spent clearing out my studio and then moving my speakers all around while playing test sweeps was very, very illustrative.

Re: Mixing a band with a single, mono electric guitar

In my mind it would depend super heavily on what the arrangement was like.
