Re: Help me design my rooms

You could even have the bassist and guitarist in the control room with you doing direct or a low watt amp mic'd up, which might be more comfortable. Eye contact with band members may or may not be an issue. Depends on the band.

Re: Help me design my rooms

Since it's two small rooms I would make it as dead as possible and bass trap as much as possible (the whole room would be ideal in this situation). The reflections in that room could build up pretty bad. Close micing and eliminating the room as much as possible would lend to the cleanest results. I ...

So many excellent mics under $1000 for vocals off the top of my head from my personal experience: EV RE20 Shure SM7b Heil PR 30 Rode NT1 Neat Kind Bee 3u Warbler series 3u CM1 Rode Procaster for specific situations, a handheld dynamic like an SM58 can sound great for punk or metal performances for s...

Re: bass drum mic - front or back?

If I had to pick just one side, I would pick the resonant side. Especially if the resonant side has a port you can easily get excellent kick drum sounds with the right mic and placement. Micing just the beater side sounds kinda crazy from my experience.

Re: NAC (National Audio Company) no longer making cassette tape (still doing Duplication though)

Tapes.com is where I go. I've heard a lot of bad from Delta. Messing up peoples orders fairly often, things of that nature.

Yeah, tapes sell quite well in certain underground communities. Punk, psyche, garage, math rock, etc..

Re: alesis wedge power supply problem?

Mine does that as well but I'm able to get it to stay if I get it just right.

The EeeEmmTee 1 setting makes it worth keeping. It seriously sounds good on vocals.

You and I have similar Pro Tools timelines, starting with the dig 001 back in 2001 or so and moving up to a TDM rig.
I still have both my Digi 001 and TDM system with my Mac G4 10.3.9! None of that shit sells for anything so I'm just hanging onto as a backup/nostalgia.

Re: I highly recommend REAPER

I used Pro Tools for 15 years. I first had a Digi 001 on PT 6.4. I then upgraded to a TDM system with 3 24/888's that I bought off eBay for pretty cheap for Pro Tools prices 10 years ago. It was still PT 6.4 but it was TDM now. The zero latency monitoring was pretty cool, even with plugins; and that...

Re: unhyped kick drum mic

Another option would be the Heil PR48. It has a big bump at 75hz and 4khz but the mids are flat. So it has that low end heft but not a scooped sound.

Re: phase alignment and polarity adjustment plugins

I bought Audiomere Polarity Maximizer about a year ago and it rules. Super easy to use and saves on time. Totally worth the $50 they ask for. If you use Harrison Mix Bus as your DAW it come built in. Pretty rad!
