FS: EV RE15, Peluso CEMC6 set, Rogers drums, outboard, DW pedal, bx plugins

figured I would post here before I put the rest of it on reverb. can send pics to any interested parties. EV RE15 - great mic, just not using it much these days. it's old and has lost plenty of paint, but still works fine. emphasis switch has basically disintegrated. it is currently on the flat resp...

Re: Any luck using Rx to help remove clipping distortion?

depending on what the clipping sounds like, the de-clicker in RX might actually serve you better. I doubt you'll get it totally restored, but it might make it less obvious/offensive.

Re: EQ when mixing

it depends (stock TOMB reply #1)! If you need something super sculpted to fit into a dense mix, then it sure makes sense you will be EQing the hell out of things to get them to fit. that's one thing I truly enjoy about doing quieter or sparser projects - I don't have to micromanage every damn thing....

WTB: Microphone cases

This worked last time, so I thought I'd try it again. Hoping some folks have some cases kicking around collecting dust I can take off your hands.

Re: Mounting Mics To Drum Rims

am I the only one who had issues with those LP percussion claws resonating? I still use them on occasion, but always mounted to another mic stand.

Re: Tell me about your migration to Reaper

I was concerned about shortcuts, too, but then learned you can program them in Reaper (maybe other DAWs, also?). Mostly don't wanna throw a few hundred bucks to Steinberg every couple years just for stability. I'm getting by just fine for the time being - but i've had issues with plugins and just se...

Tell me about your migration to Reaper

I think there are more than a few out there. Been using Cubase 6 since 2012 or so, I believe. Have only tinkered with Reaper, and haven't updated past version 4.99, but it just seems so much more user friendly and has features I just wish I had in Cubase - esp wet/dry for all plugs (why on earth has...

Ugly Ducklings

I can't be the only one with a bunch of gear that looks like shit that still does a good job, no? What have you got that looks like hell but you still use all the time? recently scored an Oktavamod MK319 with a dented to hell headbasket for $225 that sounds great! I have a DW brass snare (pre-collec...

Re: "On kicks with different mics like ya do"

I wish more mics, both dynamic, and SDC were side address. Have you tried the Shure Beta 181? Super cool, super small, great sounding mics. i haven't, but i'm curious (no tapeop review yet?!). have you? would love to get a more musical side address SDC. the ATM450 always sounds a little honky to me...

Re: drummers without sound holes on their kicks!

yeah, albini does often. i've seen him use SM98s for just this application and that's why/how i started experimenting with it. I believe he had it setup to duck via sidechain insert from the top snare mic. makes sense, but still a bit noisy for my taste, so gave up on that method.

drummers without sound holes on their kicks!

As a drummer, I empathize with not wanting to chop a hole in your $50 kick head. Obviously I have a few kicks folks are welcome to use (with sound holes), but that can often hamper their playing if they're used to a different feel. So if a drummer wants some snap/click but is opposed to removing or ...

Re: "On kicks with different mics like ya do"

What kicks are you on for other instruments. Blue Mouse for bass cabs! used to pair with M88, but not finding any need to these days. still mix up guitar mics pretty often, though my Joly Modded RSM5s end up getting a lot of use snare has been M201 on top and 441 on bottom, unless positioning is to...

Re: "On kicks with different mics like ya do"

i do usually go with my beta 52, but after i blew out my second one in 10 months and had to send back to Shure for a replacement, I ended up using a D6 I got on a deal and it did a fine job and either that or my Beta91 have gotten the nod since even I got the 52 back. I sometimes like the Heil PR40 ...
