Re: Looking for mixer to pair with Fostex R8

someone recently brought their entire tape machine (tascam 1/2"-8) and soundcraft spirit folio this version https://www.gumtree.com/p/audio-dj-mixers/soundcraft-spirit-folio-sx-mixer/1319001717 and it worked very nicely for tracking routing, etc. I used all external preamps though so I can't say if ...

Re: reference listening

yea probably good to use the exact same path from mix down "deck" to monitors/room

also maybe a good idea to SPL match your A to B comparison in the room too since that difference will skew the mix significantly ?


I dunno

I just use references for broad things like style mostly

Re: reference listening

I don't think it matters as long as it works as a reference for your purposes

even if it's the same music on the same format the particular master might be more significant or at least that will be a bottleneck before the format

so that's another thing to listen out for

Re: Mixing an 8 piece band with an edge

Yeah the reverb on his records is totally key to me. I "get" room sound, and I understand various effects styles being applied to tracks (pre-delay, plate vs spring vs digital etc), but I can't crack the way they put space into these recordings (or capture it). It's very cool sounding. it sounds to...

Re: Mixing an 8 piece band with an edge

best guesses :high: tape compression/saturation - transients are soaked up dynamic mixing with different sections having different mixes rolled off highs and lows Fela vocal sound like a cardioid (proximity effect) valve mic with a rolled off top SDC on overhead/room drums maybe like a bit farther t...

Re: the return of the ubertar ribbon mic

better transient response (detail) and higher amplitude output I think are the main advantages

to me it equates to higher fidelity and an apparent airier quality up top

Re: New Orleans style horn section

I was thinking of just getting them all around one omni mic and going straight to a single track :D if I had to use one mic I'd prob not have them around it - recipe for disaster - place them at distances that mix them evenly into how far/close you want the final result to be overall - probably a m...

Re: M. Ward's Drum Sound on "Never Had Nobody Like You"

definitely could be a supraphonic or black beauty they sound pretty much like this if the top head has a ring or something on and it's tuned pretty low - I guess most snares can do this sound as it's mostly the wires and the character of the drum gets taken out with the muffling

Re: Sennheiser MD504 vs current “e604”

I've never tried the 504 looking at the published freq response and polar pattern diagrams briefly they look almost identical I don't think it'd matter much? easy to compensate for differences if they are similar sounding in the real world at least I like the e609 silver on tom top or bottoms althou...

Re: 8 Channel Hum Eliminator before Tape

for sure

the hum eliminators will only work for specific types of problems - they don't elimanate hum in every situation so don't expect them to

Like 13 on the chart but switch the red and black on the XLR end

I believe using the TS outs on the art is the best because the docs don't say they're balanced while it states XLR outs are balanced

keep it unbalanced to unbalanced
