Re: Looking for mixer to pair with Fostex R8

do you record by yourself 4 or less inputs at at time? or are you recording 5-8 tracks? i ask because you can get away with a 4 buss machine if you're recording by yourself. the fostex machines have a feature where you plug inputs into Input 1-4, and leave 5-8 empty. when you are tracking those 5-8 ...

I really dislike The Black Keys but that album he did with Auerbach, Locked Down, might be in my top 10 of all time. I saw him at a festival in Chi in the early 90's and he did not look healthy, but sounded great. He walked on gilded splinters.
yeah that record is amazing.

Re: Listening to mixes in the car...

yeah i do it too, depends on which car, i'm cheap so i have old cars most just have CD players no USB. i also listen to mixes on my home stereo. it's a nice 70's reciever and speakers (yamaha ns 5). those 2 plus listening on headphones helps to get a better all around mix.

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

a person after my own heart. i dumped the DAW's 10 years ago and haven't looked back. Had a bunch of Tascam 388, Teac 3340s, Otari MX5050, and have settled on a Fostex Model 80. The Tascam 388 prices are outrageous and not worth it in my opinion unless you can find one completely ready to go with de...

Re: New Orleans style horn section

No, I mean the elements. Like... Two trumpets, trombone and tuba, maybe? there is no standard brass band setup. just put second line in youtube or brass band or jazz funeral to get a good idea. snare drum, tuba, bass drum, and then horns is the most basic. some add woodwinds, cowbell, and more perc...

How would you guys assemble a N'awlins Funeral Procession/Sally Army style brass section?
it's called a Second Line. Usually it's bass drum with splash cymbal they use as both ride/crash. Tuba, Trumpet, and then varying Bone, Sax, Clarinet, etc.

Re: New Orleans style horn section

second line main elements are drum, bass/tuba, and melody. i think you'll be fine as long as that Upright is doing some second line Mambo lines (1 and 5 with walk ups/down) like the Tuba usually does. Trumpet and Trombone should be fine to do melody and counter point. no need for a full horn section...
