Re: Favorite Hardware Reverb Unit

+1 for PCM60. i only sold it cuz I'm all ITB these days and hadn't used it in a long time. but it sounded great and was so damn simple and easy to dial in.

got to use a Klark Teknik DN780 once and was blown away. if i was investing in outboard again, i'd start saving for one of those!

Re: small mixers for tracking headphones?

the thing that bugs me about CAT5 cabling is that it's not sturdy. the plastic bits break off and even with them present, the connectors tend to come loose. I think an XLR or TRS cable would be a helluva lot more sturdy, is all. that, and panning is what i'm after.

Re: small mixers for tracking headphones?

Was thinking a splitter of some kind - art make 4 and 8 channel ones. Maybe one or two of those and some xlr to trs splitters? I have one for podcast recording redundancy. Might not be the craziest idea. May try putting one together and report back

small mixers for tracking headphones?

anyone doing this? have been rocking Furman HR6s for some time, but the stupid CAT5 cables always seem finicky and I don't like the panning limitations - nevermind the fact that they are no longer made. saw some Greg Wells session somewhere they were using little Mackie's for headphone mixers. I don...

Re: dark condensers on the cheap for high SPLs

damn, you got 8?! jealous. $70ish a pop when they were blowing them out was pretty tough to pass up, but i only snagged 3. i'll make do. have wanted a 4047 for a good while, but yeah, a bit pricier. soon, though. curious about trying a cheap-o ribbon, now, though.

Re: Slate VMS ML-1 fans?

ah. interesting. i can certainly hear the difference with the switching of emulations, but not as much of a "wow" as i had hoped for. i initially was going to buy the ml2s and maybe should have gone that route first. jealous you got all the mic models. i'll give those tunes a listen. curious.

Slate VMS ML-1 fans?

been curious about modeling mics a good while and took advantage on the sale price on the Slate in the last couple weeks. used it in a few capacities and have been pretty underwhelmed so far. drum room, guitar and bass cab, vocals. will try it a little longer, but really not feeling it. the mic, its...

Your storage solutions - esp for cables

I have a new spot and for once need to be efficient with my use of space. What are folks using as far as storing cabling, especially? I’m thinking some kind of hook/dowel situation on the walls would be a good plan. Are there some ready made things that aren’t unnecessarily expensive?

Re: dark condensers on the cheap for high SPLs

yeah, the 012s are my go to for batter head! have wanted a ksm137 for a while, might be time to pull the trigger. used to use 4050s on bottom tom duties, funny enough, but found them to be a little thin. curious about a stock oktava 219/319. i only have the Joly modded 219, which is pretty damn good...

dark condensers on the cheap for high SPLs

looking for mics for resonant toms, mostly. i have plenty of options for more neutral or bright, but have been digging the sE electronics X1D - just had one break and they don't make them anymore, so not holding out hope for a repair (still under warranty). hell, i'm tempted to try a cheap ribbon do...

Re: Bass Plugins

and unless your DI is really bad (in which case, try a better one?), the lack of low end may not be because of it. Monitors, room treatment, bass/pickup? all that applies. +1. and I would say be sure you are monitoring through something that can recreate those sub frequencies (either a sub in your ...
