Re: Favorite Hardware Reverb Unit

A hell of a lot of reverbs were sold to the live sound world, which these days is nearly 100% "plugin" processing. Either bundled with the digital console, or literally a Waves plugin on a nearby computer.

Re: Who has used Ramsa boards?

We still had a medium-ish Ramsa at work up until about 10 years ago, didn't go out but whenever I looked at it everything still worked just fine.

Dang - you really can buy small Ramsa boards for peanuts on eBay these days.

Re: Need Help With DIY Diffuser Design...

I'd have to dig out a big heavy book to verify this, but I think the deal with those curved poly diffusers is that at lower frequencies they flex and absorb, especially if backed with fiberglass or something. Higher frequencies get scattered.

Re: Need Help With DIY Diffuser Design...

I'm far from an expert but AFAIK real lightweight stuff doesn't work for diffusors, you need something with some actual mass. Certainly an interesting question. Maybe it's a diffusor at high frequencies, and an absorber at lower frequencies? An abffusor? Diffsorber? I have some random large pieces ...

Re: Need Help With DIY Diffuser Design...

That curved surface design goes back forever - classic design. Probably where I'd start. There's a youtube channel based out of Chicago here called "Experimental Sound Studio", and they have some big QRD panels made out of that rigid pink insulation foam. It's even their logo! Ever since the pandemi...

Re: Clip-On Tuners?

I have a Stroboclip, and really liked it. Up until the clip broke. But it was really good for accuracy, much better than the usual $15-20 suspects. Have you tried contacting Peterson about this? Back before they went digital, their customer service used to be pretty good. I don't know if that still...

Re: leslie speakers and stereo recording

The box too plays a big part in the sound, a lot gets reflected around inside.

BTW only one of the two horns will have sound coming out of it. The other one is just there for balance.

Re: I highly recommend REAPER

I've been using the Harrison Mixbus, and gotten pretty good at doing stuff in it. But I actually don't like the EQ, the default channel EQ is a 3-band without Q/width and I just don't like the sound of it. And it doesn't come with any EQ plugin that has the standard modern parametric EQ. Might give ...

Re: notes on a way simple mod for an AKG C3000

I actually still use my TOMB ribbons a decent amount. I did a mono OH with one right next to my head on Tuesday. The only mod I want to do is make the yolk longer for easier angling of the mic. I keep one with the yolk outside the XLR. If we could upload photos I'd show the set up. Yeah, we had the...

Re: notes on a way simple mod for an AKG C3000

Since a spammer brought this thread back from purgatory... I've actually found that some foam on the inside can help attenuate reflections inside the headbasket - found that out when I built a 2" diameter mic and the high end was all harsh. A layer of foam inside smoothed that down nicely and didn't...

Re: RIP, Charlie Daniels

I had a decent one working experience with him - a live show, and he actually came sidestage just to watch the opening act. Was polite about asking if he'd be in the way. Back around 1990 or so. Pretty white crowd, and I don't recall any people of color on the crew. So maybe we didn't see the true c...
