Any fundamental difference between the akg 414 versions?

Hi,

I'm in the market for new overheads for digital recording. I'm looking at 414s. I know the tlII/xl2 ones are too bright for overheads, especially in my room, so i'm looking at the xls/uls ones.

Other than the additional pattern options, are there any fundamental differences?

Thanks!

That would be much more convenient for me! She's a stickler, however, and apparently expects to receive currency or an equivalent thereof.

I know this has been on other threads, but can someone describe the sound/tone/whatever difference between muting and not muting a bass? My favorite bass sound is the super resonant REM bass sound circa Chronic Town. I'm j ust curious if someone could describe the difference in simple terms so that ...

xy bar question

I know this was in a post on here, but my search didn't turn it up.

What was the name of the company that made decent but cheap xy bars?

I have some more information: We notice the problem while getting signals, not just during playback. I'd say it sounds like it's just decaying really quickly, maybe that's what lets the brittle/sharpness dominate I recorded some guitar on it today and then plugged the pres into my ad16x. the tape on...

Problems with Otari MX80

Hi, My partner and I have been having the following problems with my Otari MX80: When we track vocals, they get this very strange warbly distortion. Kind of like a ring modulator sound or a very fast tremolo. Not in a good way at all. We checked the alignment and the machine is properly aligned to +...

Well, it's gone from bad to mindboggling. I reinstalled Windows XP, all my software, all my drivers. Still the same problem. Ran Norton. Found nothing. Opened mixes that worked even a day ago. They don't play without crackling or crashing. Ran defrag. Drives are all below half full and I defragged. ...

As a rule, once you reach 50% of your HDD capacity the performance drops at an accelerated rate. +1. Really worry when you're at 85%+. Are you using an external drive for your tracks? I'm using a 20 gb partition of a 200gb sata drive. it's not the system drive. We made the partition for writing aud...
