Re: transparent 500 series pre

millennia media makes a 500 now - they're known for being transparent - dunno if the the 500 offering is the same as the others - seem to go used around 500

Grace makes a 500 now too - dunno the price

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

Note: ALL Digital devices which use converters from analog to digital are dBFS "deciBels Full Scale". No exceptions. Cheers.

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

watch the video :hammer: the meters on channels of a DAW are typically in dBFS - 99% of the time - there are plug in virtual analog VU meters out there though I believe you're not wrong in the low levels looking sketchy - I've looked at the documentation for the gear you're connecting studio gear ha...

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

it's weird to me that all your tracks are peaking at zero on the channels and the master is not over - sounds like something might be limiting the signal at 0dBFS in your computer but like I said I have no idea about garage band and don' know the program material so it's hard to say that might cause...

the Kali Audio speakers - people love them - they have a lot of options on the back for tuning them to how they're setup in a room

Re: Level Standards For Music For Film

before even trying to make it impactful and dynamic and all that the number one concearn is the intelligibility of the dialog ideally a theater mix will be done in a theater control room that's set up and leveled at the theater standard - you just mix right up into that completely intuitively if it'...

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

I hear ya - clipping converters can be terrible - but it really does work in some situations and can even be a more transparent option than some limiters

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

as far as making a natural recording with one guitar - my super simple approach producing: I'll work from a demo and assess the arrangement to see what happens - then make a lot of notes and find the spots if any that are problems for translating into a record - then pick the right instruments that ...

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

I think I was confused about something. It seems my initial transfer was done "properly." But I'm noticing something new... I have some o...

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

mastering engineers often clip ADC's (or software or analog outboard) to get a limiting effect that preserves the transient punch rather than using a limiter that will usually soften it / impart its particular unique artifacts - it's a good combination of the two in careful doses (or none of the ab...
