Re: Mixing a band with a single, mono electric guitar

Hey gang! Over the years I've gotten all too good at creating a wall of stereo distorted guitars. Doubling stuff with single guitarists, big sounds with two, doing two amps (and sometimes delaying one of them). What I haven't done much of is the root of rock and roll: Just one guitar. I've tried to...

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

if you wanna take your tapes into the studio to work you prob ought to get the same format your studio has, no? how are you going to take say a 1/2 -8 reel to a studio that has say a 2"-24 ? yea typically you can't run cross format at least not without a changeout of headstock and guides and recalib...

Re: Monitor dilemma

z reviews is totally right on when he says the Kalis are designed by people on a passionate revenge mission to make them good - I've noticed a lot of folks don't stay up to date with the latest innovations in gear and just recommend the same old stuff from decade or two ago because that's what they ...

Re: Monitor dilemma

It would be hard to demo the B&Ws and they are a hi-fi passive speaker that really need a good power amp to shine

the Kalis have been the talk of the town recently and are designed amplified and adjustable to different placements and more easy to demo

so check em out !

Re: Monitor dilemma

everyone seems to love the Kalis and the price is right

the best speakers you can get for the budget you stated is what Scott recommended - they'd benefit from a better power amp but you can save up and add in the future

Re: 388 Dumping to Digital? What do I need?

24/96 is good for tape capture as it retains a lil more detail 388 tape outs are RCA unbalanced - so you'll want an interface that's compatible - get one that has 8 1/4" unbalanced ins make or purchase an 8 channel RCA to 1/4" snake as short as possible with quality cable n jacks - this will prob m...

Re: Printing An Effect To Its Own Tape Track

with a 388 hells yea..I'd likely use a Behringer exciter to combat the dullness of the format and get a thicker tone - I guess just watch out for it being too harsh of a setting and figure out a way to compare it where the A/B volumes are equal so you don't get tricked into "louder is better"

Re: Printing An Effect To Its Own Tape Track

that's how most people do it - just buss to another track one thing I've learned is that what people say does not always correlate with what sounds the best to me I try every option and see what I like the best the verb on another track no matter how you do it is objectively more versitile in that y...

Re: Printing An Effect To Its Own Tape Track

I definitely like the reverb on a different track - I think you're right for wanting that I like to not use any of the regular drum mics for the reverb and use a separate one that's micing the closest wall to the drums and run that through the reverb 100% wet - or more often I don't use a reverb at ...

Re: New Orleans style horn section

We'll be in a decent size studio with a big room, so I'd like to do live horns and nothing MIDI. great if you can pull it off then go for it ! I'll say don't discount augmentation with midi - actually try it - and compare the song with and without - it's cheap and easy to do and has the potential t...
