noise between ensemble interface and Ramsa mixer

Hi all I have a weird problem where I have noise between my mixer and my interface. when I isolate either one, the noise goes away. It sounds similar to when a cable is plugged into an amp without the instrument connected to the other side - the noise can be turned up or down depending on mixer gain...

Re: Chicago studio reccomendation for next weekend?

So many great studios in town, but from your description I'd have to recommend Experimental Sound Studio. They have a great sounding live room, a really nice vibe, and great engineers. Check them out.

space echo repeat rate problem

Hey all. I'm having issues witht the repeat rate of my re-201 roland space echo. Turned off, I can spin the pinch roller ok, but it doesn't spin out for a while like a top or bike wheel. Yet it isn't stuck, or gunky. When on, the capstan motor spins ok but after 5 - 15 seconds, it slows down to a gr...

Thanks for listening, Marshall.. I'm not familiar with the reference, but Ill have to look up Capitol Years. I brought the tape machine to Reelsounds Chicago studio in Skokie, and dumped the 8-tracks to a Radar II machine. It was nice having the Radar for quick rw/ff. Those tracks went straight to c...

Hums + Haws -- Tascam 58 8-track recording

Please check out a project I just completed, called Hums + Haws. I play everything (except a mandolin on a track and backup vox on a track). This was recorded in my Chicago basement through an early 80's Ramsa board to a Tascam 58 8-track, both of which I picked up last fall and learned to use throu...

Tascam 58 calibration help/ tutorial in Chicago

Hello, I am learning to calibrate my Tascam 58 machine, and I can get all but track 1 to calibrate OK. It would be ideal to have someone experienced come to my space and show me to properly calibrate/ bias the machine. I am more than willing to pay a standard engineering rate or something. It would ...

WTB: 1/2" tape in Chicago

Hello

I am looking for 1/2" tape, preferably locally in Chicago. I recently purchased a Tascam 58-OB and am in need of reels. I believe it was biased for Quantegy tape, but am unsure if this will matter much.

Looking for new or slightly used condition.

Thanks!
Matt
