Re: limiting busses in rock music - digital

in really dense mixes, i often stick a brick wall limiter on the bass. otherwise, it's tons of compression, often in parallel.

if i ever feel like anything is poking out too much, it often just needs work earlier in the chain - most common issue is inconsistent drummers with the kick.

Re: Tape Plugins

I have the UAD Studer and Ampex. I used the Ampex on my master bus for a long while and stuck the studer on individual drum tracks or bass tracks frequently. Now, I honestly just use the Studer on 2 bus sometimes - 30ips gives you a nice low end bump. The Ampex can be fun on individual things if you...

Re: 47 FET style mics

I do have an SM7B. I use it frequently for screamers and sometimes for guitar cabs. Tried on kick here and there but was always kinda meh on it in that regard. I also have X1Ds (got 3 when they were blowing them out) and while I like them on bottom Tom mics - they complement my MK012 or ATM450 on th...

47 FET style mics

admittedly, i've never used one, but I imagine my U195 with the "fat" switch engaged might be somewhat in the ballpark. am I wrong? I am curious what other mics might get me this kind of vibe and possibly do a better job for not a whole lot more dough? much as I might want a Wunder or reissue, those...

Re: Oktava MC012 Swivel Joints

I have seen the blue hummingbird mics but have yet to hear one or seen many reviews. Have you used them?

Besides, I have a ton of okatava 012s, seems more economical to buy a $70ish swivel joint than a hummingbird that seems to go for twice that used

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

just scored a UA 2108!! had one in my studio years ago, but left with a studio partner. bummed as it was discontinued and the rare instances they popped up on ebay, they were ridiculously expensive - I saw one go for $3k a few months back. when this one popped up for $1500, i didn't wanna wait. thou...

Re: I need help High Passing

The first few times I tried it, yeah, it didn’t do much for me. But when I tried it again a couple years later when I had a sub in my monitoring setup, it made a huge difference. Like night and day. Typically top and bottom mics are equally loud in the mix for me. Now anytime I’m mixing something wh...

Re: I need help High Passing

Does anybody high pass toms? 80 Hz? Maybe not the floor tom? always. rack toms usually 60-70Hz ish. floor toms often around 50-60Hz. i am usually working with toms that are tuned pretty low. i literally high pass everything except the kick drum on like 95% of my mixes. most things don't get cuts ab...

R88 owners

where are you using these things? i'm thinking about getting one, but there aren't a ton of things i mic in stereo. drum overheads/room or acoustic guitar is all that really come to mind - and i rarely get acoustics in the projects i work on. i'm sure i could put one on a guitar cab here and there, ...

Tape Transfer Options

i know there are quite a few out there. most critical is 2 or 3 1" 16 track reels I have - my MS16 may have finally died. have a couple 1/2" 8 track reels i may toss in as well. these projects have more or less non-existent budgets, so round and wound seems most appealing, as it's cheapest i've come...

Re: Sonivox plugins - Danger! Warning Will Robinson!

i have a few of their products. i don't use them often but i did notice the other day that they're causing protools to crash if i start it. fortunately for me, i rarely use protools - normally mix in cubase.

it's a shame, they sound pretty good, especially for the money.

Re: Sebatron

Lately I stick any inside kick condensers (d71c usually), my overheads (josephson c42 usually) and bass cab mic (usually blue mouse w transformer), but I’ve used it plenty for dynamics on guitars, ribbon overheads, and the DI for bass with good results. To each their own, certainly. It def isn’t as ...
