Re: Patchbay Help with a Small Analog Rig

IMG_1580 (2).jpeg This is how I have it setup right now. Insert Cable into I/O of back of patch bay half normal & compressor on I/0 of back of patchbay. I can get the signal into the compressor by patching on the front panel, but that compressed signal doesn’t go back to the board. I would assume I...

Re: Patchbay Help with a Small Analog Rig

Thanks for the reply Digitaldrummer! That ART is on my list of things to purchase. Otherwise I do have the Hosa Insert Cable & a Samson S Plus Patchbay. Maybe I need two of the Hosa Cables? One to Patch the Compressor to the patchbay, and another to run from the channel insert of the mixer to an Inp...

Re: Would Dumping from an 8 track repeatedly cause sync issues?

Wow!!

Thanks so much everyone for the quick and very informative replies!

:worthy:

I appreciate it very much, and is a major consideration for me purchasing this machine or not.

I am still on the fence about it. Lots to think about.

Thanks again :D

Would Dumping from an 8 track repeatedly cause sync issues?

Hello, I am on the verge of buying an Otari MX5050 8 track machine in wonderful condition. My intention is to throw a mono drum track onto the machine from my DAW, track to those on the machine, and then dump all 8 tracks back to my DAW at once. I imagine this would work fine. My question is if I ri...

An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

Hey there, I am hoping to get some advice on a possible analog system that would fit my needs and budget. I have been recording myself digitally for about 15 years. Starting on a Boss BR8 digital 8 track, to Logic, and now Pro Tools. I am well aware of the great technology we have access to these da...

Re: Low Volume Recorded Playback from Teac Tape Machine

Hello recently picked up an old Teac A-2300SX. Everything seems to be working great. Before possibly taking it off to a tech to have it get a check up, I figured I would buy an old cheap tape which had church music previously recorded on it, and a cheap plastic take up reel to check out the functio...

3 Tape Machines To Choose From

I can choose between 3 models of 2 track Tape Machines for the same reasonable price tomorrow. The models are Teac A-2300SX (Seller says it seems to be in the best condition) Teac A-4300SX (Similar to above with Auto-Reverse? Don't think I need that) Teac X-10R (Which definitely needs some work) My ...

Thanks for the responses

Thanks for some good conversation kslight! Good stuff about the 38 / Otari as well. Have been looking into those as well for a while. I am aware these things aren't the easiest to open up and work on, and I definitely understand the perspective of someone who lived with working in the limitations an...

Considering Getting One

So it's no secret the prices of these things have risen dramatically over the last few years. I was lucky enough to have one for a very short time a few years back, but didn't have the space or time to realistically keep it. I continued working in other studios but have the bug to get back to home r...

Cool

Good conversation guys. Lots of the opinions and thoughts mirror what has been going through my head lately, especially relying on these samples so much in great sounding rooms with great sounding gear. Also the mindset that things NEED to be replaced. I came up working with engineers and studios wh...

Drum Samples/ Replacement/ Augmentation (Future of Drums?)

Hey guys. I want to start this off by saying, most of my favorite records are made with great drummers, in great rooms, with great kits. I think most would agree that if you want THAT sound, you need to go into a proper room, and do it the right way. A real performer not quantized to death, an engin...

Adding Analog Flavor vs. Keeping It Clean

Hey guys. Long time recorder/musician gear minimalist. Right now my setup is a small treated room, KRK 5's, SM57. SM7B, Blue Bluebird, Apogee Duet 2. It treats me well for electric guitar, vocals, and DI'd keys an bass. I am lucky in that I have great guitars/amps/keyboards I always go to the studio...

yes

It will be in a studio with a great live room and enough iso booths for all the instruments. Also will be done digitally so any small corrections/punches should be pretty easy. Have been listening to The Raconteurs records today on vinyl, which I have the read the core was tracked live, so much ener...
