Re: Oktava mk 012 hypercardioid capsules

Thanks for the reply! Hmmm if they sound less fat I may not like it, that my favorite part. Especially on toms! You are right I could try and buy from a place that has a good return policy in case I’m not feeling it.

Re: Oktava mk 012 hypercardioid capsules

The bleed is totally manageable but if it’s more manageable with the hypercardioid caps then I may drop some money.

I started using it on snare because I saw a video of Albini saying he using one about 50% of the time. That was certainly enough to sell me on it!

Oktava mk 012 hypercardioid capsules

I really love these mics on drums, particularly snare and toms. I just have the stock cardioid capsules they come with but I’ve been thinking about purchasing the black hypercardiod capsules to reduce cymbal bleed. Anyone have experience with them? Are they significantly different in their rejection...

Re: Who does cheap ribbon mic repair?

I re-ribboned this cheap MXL Ribbon mic and it was so stressful I was sweating while I was doing it. It was like in Leathal Weapon when they were cutting the wires on a bomb, and all the sweat was beading up on their forehead and neck. I successfully pulled it off though. It's very dark but sounds g...

He's a nice guy as well.

Link for that video?
It's from that company URM so it was $20 or $40 to watch it but you get the multitracks too. It's pretty cool!

Re: drum samples in heavy music: When did it begin????

I know for a fact he blended in a few on kick and snare on the newest full length. I know it doesn't really matter, but this disappoints me. I liked be able to point to him as a beacon of organic authenticity in a genre(s) filled with synthetic contrivances. The dude is a beast. That is still an ab...

Re: drum samples in heavy music: When did it begin????

I know for a fact he blended in a few on kick and snare on the newest full length. He used samples from his new drum programming software that came out. I know this because I watched a 6 hour long video on how he mixed a song off the new record. The samples were maybe only like a quarter of the kick...

Re: drum samples in heavy music: When did it begin????

It's not impossible but sometimes in extreme metal genres it sometimes actually sound less fucked up sounding to using multi velocity samples than heavily gated and compressed close mics. Some people will use a blend of the two. Supposedly Converge's "All We Love We Leave Behind" has zero drum sampl...

Re: Redux: Condensers on toms

Oktava mk012s on toms are still sick. I have 5 of them and plan on getting a 6th. The 450’s are meh. I had to eq them too much compared to the Oktava. Too much cardboard midrange for toms imo. The 12 guage blue 12’s actually sound good on toms and are easy to fit in tight spaces. Tonally they sound ...
