recording the masters (formerly RMGI) is making cassette tape as well. based off their SM900 reel tape formulation. Type I but could be worth a shot.

pretty sure the MD409 has a transformer output.

A friend had one he carried around for Saxophone duty. Best sounding sax mic I've heard. Of course he was a great player too so maybe any mic would sound good on him...
great on trumpet as well. just a f'ing great mic all around!

Re: Cassettes

My band's label has released our stuff and several other folks' on cassette. The fact that you can get stuff dubbed professionally, but it's hard to find blank cassettes is pretty weird. Also, I have no means to listen to the cassettes that have been released. It's kind of catering to a niche hipst...

Re: MD 409 in pieces

509 or 609 works. also grundig gdsm 200 is the same mic as well. 509 409 and grundig all have the same capsules i believe. 609 has a different capsule. i think the 409 is the best mic for guitar amps, what a mic! when i toured our FOH guy had a couple 409 that he swore by, those guitars sounded grea...

Re: Cassettes

i've debated getting into the cassette thing, i've never done it before, well i had cassettes i listened to but i never recorded to them before. I did some basic online reading and some people say the Ferric (Type I i'm guessing) tapes have more low end and less high end contrasted to the Chrome (Ty...

Re: The Brothers Nylon

yeah i love their stuff. i love their "use what you got" ethos too with gear. The one brother plays literally every instrument you can and is proficient or better on most of them. the other dude just plays drums. very cool library music type stuff.

Re: tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

think gooey and dark stuff - juno 60 and nord electro mostly. What phaser or choruses do you like to use for something like this? standard ehx small stone slow the rate down, try an mxr phase 90 as well. for chorus the Juno has a chorus built in, or you can forgo that and just do something in the m...

Re: tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

have you tried some simple modulation? slight chorusing or phasing can usually help it to move (you can keep the rate slower so it moves but not wobbles) and give it more shimmer. i'm guessing these are sawtooth brassy type patches from synths?

Re: Tascam 388 Muddy Recording

i always had trouble with the 388's i owned, i was never able to get good bass sounds they were too distorted on the low end and it was a muddy sound. one of the things that did help though was using heavy stock tape. the 1 mil LPR35 was too thin for me, i used 1.5 mil SM911 or NOS 1.5 mil tape and ...

you need to use 90+ percent isopropyl alcohol. rubbing alcohol is too weak i believe.

Re: Interview Idea

agreed Larry, i loved how the whole issue was based on Tweedy, The Loft et al. I"m not even a Wilco fan but all the interviews combined gave a really nice view of how they work and the studio and just another way to do the studio/recording thing. bravo.

Very clean clear sounding preamp with a touch of color. sounds nic...
