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

-pair of Beyer M160s. have wanted a pair of these forever and finally pulled the trigger! such great guitar mics. haven't tried on drum OH just yet, but will soon. -Slate VMS ML-1. surprisingly good sounding mic without emulations, but not very exciting/useful for my type of productions. listed in b...

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 ...

Re: Cheap marshall clone

at that pricepoint, i'd be dubious. for that kinda $$, i'd say you're better off getting a tiny terror - those things are great for the studio. simple controls on them is a big plus, too. quite a bit pricier, but you can get a Fryette (or Fryette era VHT) for dirt cheap, considering what they delive...

France (or even EU) tape baking and 1/2" transfer

so i'm helping a friend remix an old recording and he had a friend transfer it, but it clearly has some sticky shed happening. he hasn't had much luck finding services for the baking/transfer over there, so i thought i'd check with you all. thank you in advance

Re: Best Saturation For Specific Instruments

also UAD 1073 MKII is great for adding dirt to guitars, tho not expressly a saturation plug

I like PSP's vintage warmer, UAD 1176 RevA (no compression), bx VSM-3,or UAD API vision for dirt on bass, though don't use any of them often

Re: Best Saturation For Specific Instruments

I like Soundtoys Decapitator a lot. Even more since I downloaded Tchad Blake's presets. Those are a lot of fun. I've found it's most valuable in a less-is-more sense. Love it on vocals and damn near everything else, just in small doses. I haven't successfully used it on 2-buss yet. I have tried tho...

Probably not any more now that they went subscription.
I got pretty sweet offers for the new batch and a nice, fat coupon to use. possibly could change, but i suppose i'm still hopeful.
