Hey, helpful insights, guys!

Somehow the board didn't send me an email heads-up about these replies, so I'm just seeing 'em now. But belatedly, thanks!

Otari MX5050 MKIII (8-track version) - What's a fair price?

Hey Gang, haven't posted here in a looong time! But I'm feeling a little out-of-touch about something: I have an MX5050 8-channel version that I actually bough from someone on TOMB at least a decade ago, and I haven't been using it much for at least half that time. I remember what I bought it for, a...

Yep I'm a long-time DP user and have recently purchased PT10 thinking that with the new native version I'd finally run out of reasons not to get all industry standard and stuff. Since then I've been having an impossible time trying to figure out what should be the simplest of things: monitoring inpu...

Thanks, dude! Yeah it's a great mic, but I have a few ribbons now and an opportunity came up to buy a really choice piece of gear for around the price I'm selling this mic for. I had to weigh how much I really use this mic on each session versus how much I would likely use this other piece of gear t...

FS: AEA R84 Ribbon Mic - $650 + shipping

Hi Gang, Assumedly if you're looking at this ad you know what this mic is all about sonically and otherwise so I'll skip the description and just say lovingly pre-owned and in like-new shape. Pics below the post. Comes with tote bag, and I'll ship it in ironclad style. They go for around $900 new I ...

The idea that the dynamic capabilities of the channel we are recording to would dictate the entire approach to capturing a subjective sound, is flawed... Yeah I mean the thing is, nobody in the recording industry with a brain ever said that allowing any (and every) given instrument in a mix it's fu...

Looking for a modest semi-analog studio near Columbus OH

Hey Peeps, I have a former studio client who has become a good friend that recently moved from California to Columbus OH. We worked really well together and the scale and reach of my studio and the aesthetic that we worked out together for his music gelled nicely too. He's kinda bummed that he's no ...

I just know about Fridman from what I've read and heard him say at TapeOpCon. I know he has an Otari MTR90 which are pretty know for being clean and sometime bland or clinical sounding. ...which just so happens to be the same tape machine that Sharkbite has as well. Although I'm not sure if Mr. Bec...

Triple that on getting them out into the middle of the room...24 x 60' is really pretty ample! And I suppose it goes without saying that their amps should also be projecting towards the long dimension of the room. Am I wrong in thinking that nobody has mentioned ceiling height in this thread yet? An...

I got a 57 T-Shirt at TapeOpCon a few years back and gave it to my roomie that year GreatMagnet (who never seems to hang here anymore). It burned my hands to hold it, I'm terrified to think what it would have done if I put it on. I actually turned that shirt into a horcrux. I also own two actual SM...
