Hi Crandall,

There is lots available in DC for live sound.

For renting recording gear locally, you will probably have to talk with studios/engineers. What mics are you looking for? Shoot me an email.

Good luck!

AT4050s are great mics! Gotta be careful though, because they can sound very small when used in figure-8. Maybe best in figure-8 only when close miking? Thanks for sharing!

Mesanovic Model 2 Ribbon Microphone

Used mics #19 and #20 of the Mesanovic Model 2 on a four-day piano session two weeks ago. We recorded a video right at the end: Thomas Pandolfi - DIZZY FINGERS The mics were run to a Grace 801, then imported directly into Premiere with the video. No EQ, no compression. They are new microphones, so I...

Listening to the Shastakovich. Pretty good imaging. The balance is OK, but compare the 1st violin to the viola. The viola really cuts through, often surpassing the 1st violin, which has a smaller, slightly more distant sound. The tight space is fine, and the direct v. ambient balance isn't outside w...

Re: Engineer/Producer of 10 yrs seeks a 'High Level Teacher'

A funny story: I recently was at a panel where a producer / engineer who worked on many many great albums was speaking. He said one of the things that is missing today is teachers, and that he sat behind someone for 3 years before engineering. He said, "what a shame." After the speech I went up to ...

If you are making a webpage for your studio, list clients that have recorded at your studio.

If you a making a webpage for your personal brand (mn412, engineer), list clients that have hired you and/or artists you have worked with. The former is much better.

Very cool! Let me know when you are done with the UMT70s. (Things are growing here.)

First real microphone purchase was a Schoeps CMTS 501u multipattern stereo microphone. :!: Doesn't mean I was making good recordings though. Where do they sell experience?
