Re: Tom Mic Comparison

It's funny, the snare sounds better than the tom on the KSM141. Yeah, the bleed on each of the mics is so different, it's the most notable difference between the two Sennheisers, which is crazy because a 421 costs like 3 times as much. Makes sense to me. Controlling the pickup pattern is one of the...

Is it just me, or is there an S/C embossed in the top of the jack?

Re: Favorite use for Tape Op ribbon

I've got one, but it rarely ever gets used. :(

Though just a couple days ago I took it apart to verify details about the layers of mesh and fabric. There was a question about that on a DIY microphone group.

Re: M/S guitars and other stuff

One of the big benefits of mid-side recordings is that the sound sums cleanly to mono by cancelling out the side signal. Any time you narrow the image you're getting into that territory.

RIP Rupert Neve

One of the most influential designers of recording gear has passed on. I'm not even going to try to summarize everything Mr. Neve did over many years as a designer and manufacturer. In my own little corner of the audio world, live sound, he even designed a processor that helps lectern mics and even ...

Re: RIP Chick Corea

"Three Quartets" was the first jazz record I ever bought - Corea, with Steve Gadd and Eddie Gomez as the killer rhythm section plus Michael Brecker.

I've actually worked with him, too - just a year or two ago, I did monitors for his band for a show. Still an amazing pianist.

Re: Low Phantom power from 500 rack?

If you followed my advice and bought more than one replacement, then put the extra into a little baggy and tape it to the side of the power supply.

Re: unclean electricity?

Can you plug in a long mic cable and take a sensitive mic into the "noisy" room to feel around for noise sources?

I recently acquired a new interface with an inline PSU, and I have to be careful to keep any mic lines away from that PSU.

Re: A polite linux request

For me Linux is worth the trouble as Windows 10 has some really big annoyances with the constant updating and such.

Reaper runs just fine on Linux, though you are likely to run into difficulties with 3rd party plugins.

Re: Tube amp guru, help me

7591's are a bit oddball, and the current versions i know of aren't much more than an approximation of the original spec. I'd assume a modern production amp would accommodate this, but, for instance, my Ampeg vastly prefers the EH over JJ variety, and it still required some circuit tweaks due to mo...

Re: Tube amp guru, help me

Obviously you could try to measure temperature on the outside of the tubes and compare that to a known reliable amp. A good amp tech should be able to measure the actual current through the tube to see if it's more than the tube is rated for - there's actually a little socket dongle that goes betwee...

D1 and D2 give me 0.018
D3 and D4 give me 0.47
0.47 is a good value for a diode. 0.018 is very suspect, though it's possible the surrounding circuitry is causing that.
