Re: Is my situation condusive to a Monitor puchase?

Thanks for all the info. My problem is that I've got my gear set up at a temporary spot; I'll be moving in the near future. Cash is another problem, but for the sake of my question, let's say I have money. If I'm gonna buy monitors, I want to get a decent pair, so when I am in a situation where I ca...

Re: Is my situation condusive to a Monitor puchase?

I have no experience with sonar works reference software so don’t know how well that works. While it’s certainly possible to mix entirely on headphones (I’ve been there, or lived places where speakers are not an option), it’s easy to get lost in them...I would avoid it if you can, or at least be ch...

Is my situation condusive to a Monitor puchase?

I only have a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 PRO headphones, no monitors. I'm in a situation where I can't afford both acoustical treatment and a pair of monitors. I'm trying to figure out if it's worth buying them if I can't treat my room, and just go with the headphones and something like the Sonarwork...

Re: Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone Edition

Don't have experience w. Sonarworks, but check out Morphit by Toneboosters. Cheaper by far and the demo can be used indefinitely if you don't mind it not saving settings: https://www.toneboosters.com/tb_morphit_v1.html Pretty useful IMO when mixing on headphones. You can "correct" for your current ...

Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone Edition

I've got a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pro headphones and have been thinking about buying the Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone Edition, but I've read mixed reviews. Although the Headphone Edition seems to receive a bit higher praise than the Speaker Edition. I demoed Reference 3 (for Headphones) a whil...

no you're doing it right!

the less meters the better.
I totally agree. I'm also trying to figure out if the bx_meter lacks any important measurements that would be helpful.

Favorite Metering Plugins

I've been thinking about picking up another metering plug and I'm curious if y'all have a favorite/go to. My main two are VUMT and bx_meter. I also have some freebies, but I'm drawing a blank on their names. Besides it being a worthy meter, I like it's GUI and digital meters. There's something about...

Multi-Band Compressors- Waves C6 vs The Rest

I've been checking out MBC plugins and would love some suggestions. I already have a DynEq, Waves F6, and wanna add a MBC. I'm looking at the Waves C6 just cuz of the $29 price tag. Anything else out there, at a similar price that competes or surpasses thr C6? Thabks.

Frequency Sweeping/Unwanted Frequency Help

I'm having a difficult time sweeping the frequency spectrum to find harsh/unwanted freq to cut. For example, as I sweep thru the upper mids on heavy electric guitar, I hear what I can only describe as a modulated wind tunnel. I've read several articles on how the electric guitar lives/thrives in the...

Re: Reverb Help

Audio thing outer space is worth checking out. Killer space echo emulation (with spring reverb ) If I was to grab another delay it'd be the Echoboy. It also emulates the Space Echo along with several other vintage gear. Plus, it's 50% off for the next week. The Echoboy Jr is only $29, but without m...

Re: Reverb Help

Yes, it is only for Logic Pro. BUTT: I use a laptop running Logic, with a multichannel interface, and use it as an effects device, when I need to use Logic's stock plug ins. Right now I have Focusrite RedNet devices. The RedNet HD32R, has 32 inputs and outputs. 6 of them got to a RedNet 2 which tur...

I'll skip my opinions for the ones you say you already have...
Why? I'd be interested to hear your opinions. I definitely like some of the ones listed WAY more than others. I'm curious if we agree on which are better/worse.

Re: Reverb Help

I still use outboard a lot for reverb, but I like the Little Plate a lot. The PT Air reverb works really well on percussion, especially tambourine. Ya, I'm still kicking myself for selling my two outboard FX units.. Lexicon MPX 1 and Rock from Intelliverb. More so the later as they're harder to fin...

Re: Reverb Help

If you've already used this technique then please disregard my post. But once I started using the "Abbey Road trick" I realized I don't need so many flavors of reverb at all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=738&v=4lNckK8N3to I'm familiar with this trick and use it all the time on mostly...

Re: Reverb Help

Sounds like you are missing these types: Spring. Nonlinear. Logic Pro's Space Designer. Also, maybe a good delay is a good thing to add, to make very short reverbs that have no tails. PSP Multidelay. Logic Pro's Delay Designer. The Logic Pro Designer sounds pretty cool from what I read in the post ...
