The Alice was the precursor/inspiration for the TapeOp omnis, right? I made a couple of those when they were the craze around here... ended up putting them in a manikin head, with a wax-filled coconut shell for a skull and rubber elf ears, to make a binaural head. Works pretty well. Anyone still ro...

Yeah, I actually checked out the Alice mic sound clips and I thought it sounded really nice, not broken record player through a telephone crazy at all!

I regret selling my Creation Labs modified Ghost. In the grand scheme of things it was the right move but man, I LOVED mixing on that thing. The pre's were solid and the EQ was great. But they can be maintenance hogs as well. Being able to run through the particular desk you are buying is a huge plu...

i'm curious about the wasaphone mics. I've liked the sounds i've heard from them.
I keep seeing things about the Bing but I can't find anything on them. guessing they aren't around anymore?

If you go the phone route remember that the mic needs power (6 volts I think but the correct info out is there). Lots of people wire up the handset speaker as a mic but if you want to use the mic as a mic you'll need a power supply. A friend of mine bought one online and who-ever built it used a ci...

I always think it's weird to spend a bunch of money on something that's supposed to sound lofi. Yeah, totally agree. I loved my copperphone (and wouldn't consider it lo-fi) but even if I left it up most of the time i was only able to really use it here or there. If I had a massive mic locker, I wou...

I can't find the video right now, but what you are looking for is exactly what these kids were using their's for, they did it as a music technology experiment for a class.

I had this great idea (in my mind) a few years ago and when I researched it I found out a bunch of German college kids had basically already done it. But my idea was a computer mouse that had a volume pot on it instead of a scroll wheel OR a large volume pot that could act as a mouse (imagine the TC...

Lo-fi Mics, Crazy Mics, Carbon Mics - What do you love?

So, I have a new project and I want to pic up some cheap cool mics for some aural craziness. I've been away for a while so just checking in to see what people are using? I recently ran across the old phone handles that have been converted to mics on ebay. I would do one myself if I could locate an o...

Best guitar sound I think I ever recorded was my SM7 through a SCA A12 pre-amp. That was my go to for a long time on rock guitar.
