Re: Tracking vs Mixing

i do anything but i prefer tracking and mixing as it's the same thing.

i like mixing other peoples stuff.

people mixing my stuff drives me nuts. the couple times i've had it done i've hated the result.

Re: choosing an older analog board....

'I dont know the model number, its an 8 buss, has 8 buss vu's, LR main vu's and wood sides in a moderately sized tabletop package, think its a 24 channel board.'

sounds like an M520...

Re: Bigger improvement in quality - which one?

the sm7 will take you far further in my opinion...i have the 312 it's a weird beast to me but it stil does nice things...but your mics are kinda lackluster...the sm7 rules.

if you want my used sm7 for 4 let me know...i'll buy one new for 3 at full compass.

Re: attenuator pad. where to put it?

'So, what would you guys say? Put the ATTENUATOR directly after the mic or before the pre amp?'

:)

i stick it after the mic when i have an inline one which hasn't been a long time...so i could be wrong!

Re: A Disturbing Trend in the Tape OP Reviews...

i can tell you at least via email - larry/tape op hasn't changed a bit since 96... i remember suggesting an article and larry asked if i'd do it...i saw a then-recent tape-op and thought - "outta my league" and passed it to someone... i thought, you know, tape op had gone 'big time.' a few years lat...
