Still bummed about no Canadian delivery

Hey All - I'm just still so bummed that I can't get the magazine delivered to Canada. I would honestly pay a premium. I don't do well reading on the computer and miss reading and re-reading and re-re-reading my Tape Op magazines.

I'm eternally bummed.

Endless Bummer.

Digital Subscription

I'm so bummed I can't get a paper copy of the magazine here in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia Canada. I'd seriously pay double, perhaps triple what I used to pay just to be able to have a copy again.

How to capture a great sounding room

Hey Folks - Perhaps this isn't in the correct space. Please feel free to move it if necessary. There is a club in the town that I live in, that to my ears, has the best sounding acoustics of any place I've ever been. It's my favourite place to sing, strum a guitar, or even listen to a bottle smash. ...

I like to try a bunch of different snares - keep changing them until I get the right sound. Often times I find that things I expect not to like are the right thing for the track. If I go through a couple snares that don't work, I'll change mic set up. +1 on parallel drum compression. Probably my fav...

Recording Vocals with Confidence

Hey Folks - Was in the studio recording vocals yesterday for a client who wanted to re-cut some vocals that were recorded in a rush before he left for a few months of touring this fall - but I had a whole lot of trouble with it. I just couldn't find confidence in what we were accomplishing. Here's t...

Thanks so much. I am grateful for the advice and will likely dish the cash for the upgrade.

I'm sure that it's worth it - just hard to justify for a hobbiest like myself sometimes.

As always, I appreciate the advice and expertise.

-Gus.

So the solution is a 4-track cassette recorder?

Trying to get an old OS on a new Mac

Every day's a struggle. I have a macbook pro running OSX 10.7.5 and Protools 9. I just got a new iMac running Yosemite which won't work with PT9. I want to partition the hard drive and run another bootable disc with OSX 10.7.5 on it. I have partitioned the drive and have a bootable USB with OSX 10.7...

Weird Artifacts on Test Pressings

A client of mine stopped by yesterday with some test pressing he'd just received. Everything sounds pretty good and overall I'm really happy with it - but there is this weird thing going on throughout where it sounds like all the acoustic guitars have some kind of warble, as if it sounds like there ...

Listening is an awesome way to record and mix. You listen so you can congratulate someone who's done a great take and move on to the next thing to record - or if need be you can offer some encouragement or pointers on how to get the next take. That way you're not blowing a bunch of time re-taking so...

I think this sounds great already. I agree with the comment about the melody instruments needing a little more presence.

How about another stereo pair further away in the hall to blend for more ambient sounds, use as natural reverb?

The room itself sounds pleasant.
