I know this thread is crazy old but I'm just wondering if you managed to build a new supply? I lost mine in a move last year and my rac pac was still going strong 'til then, I'd love to get back to using it. I've contacted soundcraft but just in case I need to build one..

So long as your dynamics are reasonably controlled with compressors, then I usually find I don't need to ride the faders much, if at all. As a general rule, I only ever do anything in the studio if it *needs* to be done. I'm a big believer in "less is more" and not overcomplicating things, or doing...

So you're recording with the band playing but everything but the drums is scratch? I wouldn't have the drummer keep time with the hat or clicks unless you want to keep them, you'll end up cutting off the decay of the drums and cymbals before the break. I'd track with the drummer playing as usual and...

I'd like more kick or more presence in the kick, but otherwise it's sounding pretty good to me. Horns do get lost a little.

It's strange coming back here after not really posting for years and finding it so dead around here. Big shame, TOMB was pretty awesome back in the day and I learnt so much around here.

I've been getting it too, for the last couple of days. Cleared my cache, still happening. I've been hitting cancel each time and after two attempts it goes away, but it's really annoying to have to do that on each and every page.

I'll post a sample next practice, if you have patience, but 10 - 12 quid, why not dive in? :mrgreen: Yeah, I hear you, but generally I just don't like buying stuff at any price if it's just going to be a doorstop and thus a waste of the planet's resources. I do tend to buy second-hand as much as po...

I do so love having a finger on every fader, playing the mix like an instrument, but yeah, I tend to draw it in too.
