Re: Equality, Equiibrium, what have you!! EQ plugs..

Wow..Bunch of those I've never hear of..wondering some of them are making sort of specialized noises..or sounds..emulations of old equalizers? effect/eq's?

Equality, Equiibrium, what have you!! EQ plugs..

Sometimes I get better results (deeply IMO of course) from the Apple AU parametric EQ..sometimes not...always interesting to try to match results, A/B stuff. EQ Plugs..a lot of them seem about the same to me..These two from DMG seem to be among the hotcakes out there.. Im demoing both and they feel ...

Thanks Nick, No console here..I do have a patch bay but it's not in use right now..had to make my setup fairly compact a few years back and went completely in the box using my preamps and the Rosetta// compressors and EQ when needed during tracking..not often..sometimes running tracks through some o...

Re: my mixes are hurting my earballs!

Hi Bright.. Im guessing at this point you want to try to repair this song? Im feeling you're happy with your performances here and want to make this work? So, make a copy of the project..take the new copy and turn everything off on each track..eq, compressors, effects etc..Then tweak the volume bala...

Re: my mixes are hurting my earballs!

Hi Bright.. I downloaded and put an EQ on it..parametric and surgical graphic eq.. there is a ton of hash starting at 1k or so and going all through your top end..right to the top feels a bit sibilant and essy sometimes..not just the voices..all the brass on the drums feel this way too..hashy, the s...

Re: my mixes are hurting my earballs!

Bright..do you mean you find them lacking in high end content when you're monitoring through them..mixing?

Or, do you mean lacking in high end when you play a bounce on other systems..like cars, living rooms and phone buds etc..

Re: my mixes are hurting my earballs!

For some reason can’t find my reply to this...but basically what I said is my experience with KRK monitors is that they are overly bright and fatiguing to listen to. If your mixes sound good on these they will probably be dull elsewhere. My business partner likes his KRKs...but he has also been on ...

Re: my mixes are hurting my earballs!

Bright.. Do some playing around with an EQ on your 2 buss just to test things out in a broad and general way..a test My suggestion would be to go right to the 1k (plus or minus) and into the 2k areas..and pull down a bit, sweep that curve a bit..then, pull down a lot..see if you start to feel that '...

Re: MARIK mod on Cascade Vin-Jet ribbon

Hi Mr. shiny..thanks for taking a moment.. Vin-Jet seems to be working fine..i get good results form it but it 'feels' a little failed for lack of a better term..but I don't have reference so, who knows, really..

Re: MARIK mod on Cascade Vin-Jet ribbon

I guess the talk of 'is it worth modding that vin jet for 300' and then straight to a recommendation of the Durham 'booster confused me..the Durham must have a significant effect on overall sound? buying some different and perhaps better mics, i understand The Shiny boxes are interesting and have gr...
