Re: 4 track cassette recording: random(?) cracks, blips, and cuts

where are you located? they are old machines and it likely needs service and regular cleaning of the tape path and heads. check out recursive delete which is a person who fixes these up

Re: Plug-in suggestions for the minimalist studio

i highly recommend Kush audio - i own most of their plugins but that have crazy cheap subscription option as well. Really vibey and characterful comps and eqs. he also runs the coolest youtube channel there is, "kush after hours with ubk". some solid advice on his videos on practical mix stuff http...

Re: Headphone mix suggestions?

how much you looking to spend? theres the furman's you can find cheap and used, there is the Aviom system if you want to go more expensive but more tracks to give them control over.

RIP Chick Corea

this one hits home, his record with return to forever "light as a feather" was the first jazz record to really move me emotionally. i still listen to it and have enjoyed his other works and his work with return to forever. sad day. he was amazing out front as a leader or soloist, but he was also the...

Re: unclean electricity?

I don't know if this is scientifically accurate, but I've long supposed that my noise issues are a result of the proximity of power lines to my studio. "It's moving through the air, maaaan." On a bad day it makes me want to build a faraday cage for the whole place. But it seems that some pieces of ...

Re: unclean electricity?

have you tried moving it around your room physically? could be other magnetic fields interacting with it. i know i have 1 wall in my studio that the electricity runs up and down (sockets in the wall there too). i have to have my gear away from that wall otherwise it introduces more noise. pluggin it...

Re: Tube amp guru, help me

To the OP, per my earlier comment i'm not at all surprised by Dr.Z's comment on the EHX tubes :) I just realized my email response was from Dr. Z himself. I think starstruck would be overstating it, but some smaller version of that for our nerdy corner of the world came over me. they are local to m...

Re: Tube amp guru, help me

So the Dr. Z repair department politely threw me some shade for using EH tubes and said I need to go for the Tung Sols as it is the tube of choice that they used in their design. Fair enough, I suppose. It's a $70 dollar question, and the third pair of tubes, but I'll give it a go. I feel like this...

Re: Podcast Directory - Pandemic Update

If you haven't seen the "Classic Albums" show on Steely Dan's Aja , I recommend it--even if you're not a fan. (Yeah, yeah, it's not a podcast, but it's still cool.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjRisxOHAE4 i literally re-watched that last night, i am a big steely fan, but it's a great episode re...

Re: Tube amp guru, help me

most modern production tubes are garbage. especially the stuff EHX pumps out. They own a ton of the brands, i never buy their stuff, EHX, Sovtek, Tung-Sol, Genalex, Mullard, and Svetlana. AVOID THEM LIKE THE PLAGUE. If you must have new production, go JJ/Tesla, i've found they have way better quali...

Re: What are your influences?

my father didn't listen to music, my mother listened to jazz, r&b, and gospel music. i listen to and play those 3 genres now. neither of my parents listened to the beatles, so all this treating them like demi-gods stuff is hilarious to me, just sounds like 60's rock n roll to me, nothing special. wh...

Re: Micmix Master Room XL-210... noise

yeah, have a look and see if any caps look busted, or if there are loose connections. those things are fragile in a way, could have loosed something while moving it or something.
