Neve flavor

Not desperate, more curious: Anything I’m truly missing using Neve flavored preamps, especially for acoustic guitar? I have been using a WA 412 and having lots of fun with it, especially trying different compressors with it. What say you all? Less interested in drum applications, more other instrume...

Re: Chairs?

Don’t laugh, but my seat of choice is a piano bench. For whatever reason, I find it most comfortable and versatile. It also helped I sat on one every day for 10 years growing up playing the piano LOL!

Re: Coronavirus Plans (what are yours?)

American Primitive guitarists I'm not really sure, but I think this is what my friend Rob Noyes does. Regardless of what you call it, he's a remarkable guitar player: https://robnoyes.bandcamp.com/ I have met Rob multiple times, and he is a truly remarkable player (and yes very much in the American...

Re: Blumlein!

I have to say, it's now sounding pretty darn good. Now to dial back just enough compression.... (not much to begin with)

Re: Blumlein!

I'm such an idiot! (You all know that already)

I did a phase inversion on 1 channel, and it went away.

One of the mics was facing the opposite way.

I'm such an idiot! Carry on...

Blumlein!

Now that I'm back in the basement to record again... ... I'm trying to record a solo acoustic guitar. I have a pair of Sterling ribbon mics in Blumlein (using the Cascade mic mount) about 6" from the 14th fret of my dreadnought. Sounding pretty good (using a WA 412 into the new WA 2 buss compressor)...

Re: Coronavirus Plans (what are yours?)

Major delurking by physically relurking! So glad the board is still going... during the lockdown I've been revisiting what made me happy, and this board was one of those places. Sappy, but true! So I took a meandering path over the last several years musically. Played in a band for a year or so, ban...

Re: Hardware Compressors for vocals on a budget

If you need more than 2 channels, there are multiple used Presonus ACP88 units on reverb.com for under $300. Heck, I may need to get one!

Re: Kinda like a modern take on the Tascam 388 in a lot of ways.

A worthy successor to your 238, I hope?

Do give us an update! Especially curious if the onboard compressors and effects are usable.

Thunderbolt interfaces

First post in years! I sold my primary mixer this week (Allen &Heath ZED R16) to a guy eager to use it with his synth gear, glad it went to a good home. I’m finally going to get a full on interface, and sounds like Thunderbolt interfaces may be the ticket. I’m stripping down my basement to the cinde...

OP said that they already have preamps and only need to record 2 tracks at a time.

Speaking as a former owner of a 238s, I made good use of a Mackie 1202. Everything bigger than that is gravy. In fact, you can use the mixer as a mixdown only and use whatever preamp or other mixer as your recording input. You can make your setup as convoluted as you want but in my experience the mi...
