Why not Roger Seibel at SAE?

North Brother Island - Indigogo - check it out

Hello all, I recorded all the basic tracks for a project that is in the last throes of mixing. The band launched and indigogo campaign to pay for the rest of the studio time. Not really expecting anyone to contribute, but they made a neat video and I thought it was worth sharing. Check it out of you...

Stay away from firewire...it's a dead end. Usb3 is faster, more stable and is not going extinct. Thunderbolt's future is also uncertain.... It's brilliant and I really like my thunderbolt drives and interface....but if I was buying today I'd make sure usb3 was an option. It would be nice if your in...

I'm real into this topic. I've been doing some real thrown together mobile jobs for a couple years now, always scrounging up whatever gear I can from friends to cover what I don't already own and I've been considering upgrading to something that is rad and very much my own a lot lately. The interfa...

I don't think I've found a better one than the Massey De-esser. It does the job, and does it right. Transparent and lots of tweakability without getting too complicated. I've used 4 of them in serial on a live mix to tame an acoustic guitar that was all over the room mics and you couldn't even hear ...

Re: Free Fethead

It comes apart sometimes and it seems a bit noisy (or a lot sometimes), but i'm sure it could be good for someone. I just ordered a Cathederal Pipes Durham, so i really won't be needing this. You pay postage $2.00 paypal. The first person to respond that they definitely want it and then follow up w...

I can't think of anything specific right now, but I feel like t bone Burnett dies a great job of doing roomy sounding distance micd electric guitars in an acoustic mix environment.

For $200 that dBX is hard to beat.
