Re: Power Amplifiers in 2019?

Small and cheap, but you can only find them used. usually around 75-100 bucks. if you're lo...

Re: Too much equipment. Trim down?

Im in the same boat. Mostly because my studio is now a converted one car garage and space is at a serious premium. It's solved my weird, vintage keyboard addiction. There isn't space for anything now unless something else goes. I still lust but it's mostly under control. LOL i also have a vintage k...

Re: Standalone portastudios

in addition to tascam, BOSS makes a model that Tame Impala used for their first couple of records, the dude loves the preamps overload on it apparently (read an article in tapeop maybe? i forget). only issue with the "all in one" is if something goes wrong your whole studio goes down for repairs or ...

Re: Damaged EBay Items?

contact the seller first, then file a claim. do it fast , the ebay money back has limits on how long you hold onto it. if those both fail file a claim with paypal. back to the first step, let the seller know, and ask for a partial refund. 9/10 times they will agree because they don't want the thing ...

Re: best Amp (not PA) for slim phatty

your most important purchase is your cabinet not the head. the synth will put out frequencies well below and above what a bass does. this requires a super modern full range flat response type cabinet otherwise you're going to blow the speaker. I would journey over to talkbass.com and post there and ...

Re: Headphones and comfort

I find most open-back cans more comfortable for long listening sessions - an old pair of AKG K240 DF are my go-to endurance cans. I also have the ATH-M50, which I use on location recording sessions because of the isolation they provide...they are not as comfortable but the sessions tend to be short...

Re: Headphones and comfort

there are velour pads that most dt-770 users love, and i think they make them now for all types of headphones. but from my readings online the audiophiles and headphone folks believe they actually change the seal and therefore change the way the headphone sounds. whether or not that is true i don't ...

Re: Headphones and comfort

sounds like the clamping strength is the issue, which will probably be the issue on all Closed type headphones (i believe the DT-770 are as well). Try an open back headphone like the AKG K240 Sextett or newer K240. I use those for listening to casual music at work and for all my studio stuff, there'...

Re: Click tracks. Love them/Hate them.

Often times it's been my experience that when bands show up at the studio and ask to record to a click, they are rarely prepared to do so, and that can really derail the process yeah i've dealt with that a lot. usually ones that are inexperienced in a studio environment. they think it's just the st...
