Re: the return of the ubertar ribbon mic

I'll take 2 and I can pay! Lol. I find myself using this old school TOMB deep cut with friends and family and they just look at me funny, or funnier than usual. One of the two TOMB ribbon mics I got in the group buy is still working nicely and is a favorite of the singer in my band. I'm tempted to ...

Re: gadgetlabs wavepro drivers for Windows 10???

Try disabling the automatic driver update, then you should be able to uninstall and reinstall your preferred driver:

Re: gadgetlabs wavepro drivers for Windows 10???

I'm quite happy with the Focusrite clarett USB. The mic pres are surprisingly good for the price, and I can do very low latency as long as I'm not going too crazy with plugins. Not bad for a 6-year old laptop. I had the Focusrite scarlett before hand and was less impressed with the sound quality, th...

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

I've been digging using 2 coincident mics, a dynamic or ribbon pointed dead center and a condenser (in figure 8 if I want a little more room sound) pointed 45 degrees off. I'll pan them slightly apart, and compress and eq as a group so that I don't mess up the phase coherency.

Re: Sytek no longer making the MPX 4aii?

I've got 2 stock channels, 2 J-fet, I tend to use the j-fet channels with things where the highs need a little taming, a screechy violin or overly sizzly snare, or a kick that needs fattening.

Re: Mixing template in Reaper

I'm not an expert, but in general my understanding is you don't want to turn down your audio if you don't need to. Reaper's mix bus is pretty robust, so you shouldn't be losing too much information (useful bits of your audio) if you are turning it down at the track level. But I can't vouch for whate...

Re: Mixing template in Reaper

if your individual tracks are at unity, where does your bus end up hitting? You said the individual tracks are around -15, so they might be good around unity (adjusting as needed obviously, you are mixing not just adding tracks) as long as the bus isn't in the red.Then adjust the busses gain to hit ...

Re: Mixing Down to Macbook Air - NO AUDIO INPUT?!

Behringer U-CONTROL-UCA202 go for $30 and give you RCA ins and outs. Of course you'll still need the usb-c to a adapter.

Re: Recommend me a pair of mics for acoustics, piano...

The Telefunken m60 and m260 seem great from everything I've heard. They seem to hit the sweet spot for me between neutral and hyped. Don't have them though. I love my marik modded c1000s enough that I've managed not to pull the trigger yet on the m60s.

Morphit's Correct mode does the flattening, Simulate does the emulation.

Re: Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone Edition

Don't have experience w. Sonarworks, but check out Morphit by Toneboosters. Cheaper by far and the demo can be used indefinitely if you don't mind it not saving settings: https://www.toneboosters.com/tb_morphit_v1.html Pretty useful IMO when mixing on headphones. You can "correct" for your current h...

Re: drummers without sound holes on their kicks!

I've used a condenser in figure 8 to pick up the under snare and beater, then copied and used gates to assign to snare and kick busses. Works fine until there's a song that has snare and kick hitting together.
