Re: Pro Tools 2019 Perpetual or Subscription?

I’m pretty sure the current perpetual (changed in last few months) scoop is $599 then $199 per year, if you let it lapse it’s either $299 or $599 to reinstate it...I don’t remember. Actually now that I think about it they may require you to forfeit your perpetual and subscribe instead (meaning it wo...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Does this count as gear? God damn it's fun - https://www.ioptigan.com/ Sure does! I admit I forgot about this one. I used to have a real optigan but it barely worked so I got rid of it (not needing another project and all that). If I were independently wealthy I would buy one of these: https://www....

I’ve got a double muff that I like to voltage sag, maybe give that a whirl too.
Bet that sounds real, eh, dirty. :twisted:

What do you use to drop the voltage?
My power supply (one spot cs12) has this feature built in but there are also simple DIY projects to build a dying battery sim.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Yeah, I love it at like 8-10:00, tone at 8-9:00. It has just the right amount of SVT-ish grind without becoming fuzz right there. Yesterday I made a board of the Green Russian amd Triangle Nanos along with a Mastrotron. The Triangle is much hotter than the GR, and also sounds good on the bass, but ...

Re: Cassettes

I sold my 688 and 238 because i never could get into them like the 388...at the time I bought a whole case of new 60 min (i think) type 2 tapes from delta media. I would say good riddance to them, except I own a few tape based gadgets (Landscape HCTT, Onde Magnetique OM1, and Onde Cassette Echo). Ha...

Re: Taking a specific vocal sound to live settings

The more simple you keep it the less likely you'll run into issues. If you've already got your own fx and whatever, yeah something like the Mixing Link or Keymaster work well. If you haven't bought anything yet, keep in mind that a lot of self contained modeling units have a mic input, preamp, multi...

Re: tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

For creating space, I’m sure you’ve tried sidechaining against other stuff, and also Trackspacer is useful for this. Assume I know nothing and tell me what kinds of things you like to sidechain (compressor i assume?) to I'm coming out of a more "real instruments" kind of production style and moving...

Re: tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

One thing I like about Unfiltered Audio’s plugins is that they have a modulation area where you can bring in LFOs and sequencers and envelope followers, etc...and patch those into any parameter in the plugin. Sure, kind of like automation, but probably faster to do a lot of things or where you don’t...

Re: Tascam 388 Muddy Recording

In addition to cleaning procedure, demagging is important user maintenance, depending on the frequency of use if not done can be attributed to muddy sound. All of this is covered thoroughly elsewhere, including the manual. Old/worn tape can do this too, especially if it’s shedding. It’s also likely ...

Re: Pro Tools/Hard Drive playback issue

It’s not unreasonable to assume that a FireWire port or its controlling logic could be on its way out. I take it that the computer itself must be getting old if it still has a FireWire port. Why my old Mac Pro has FireWire and USB cards installed...not because the ports are dead but I do notice issu...

Re: Pro Tools/Hard Drive playback issue

Is there a problem with your system’s (FireWire, usb?) port your hard drive is plugged into?

Also, what if you create a new session and then import all the session data?

Re: Patchbay plans/expansion to digital

I probably wouldn’t trouble with wiring both the tape out and PGM out for the 388, I can’t imagine a lot of scenarios where you’d need both? Or the PGM in? I’ve always just used the line ins, I think... The insert send and receive have to be wired a certain way, i don’t remember, half normal may be ...

Re: Tons of Plugin Deals Right Now. Any Suggestions?

Black Friday is generally the best for plugin sales, I think I got the entire Soundtoys 5 bundle for like $200 a couple years ago. It’s pretty cool, though i think the regular price of $500 is a bit pushing it these days when there’s so much quality competition. So while Decapitator is fine and all,...
