Re: CD authoring (was on PEAK and TC Spark)

DSP Quatro is good. Its by some of the people who were at Bias. For a time (maybe still) if you had you Peak serial number, they'd give you a discount on it. I needed to help a client a few years ago (I've gotten out of mastering) and they were really cool to deal with and the software works great. ...

Re: is a figure 8 a figure 8?

thanks for all the feedback. I tried going with a 2 ribbons initially but was finding the vocal tone was too mushy on this singer.. swapped to a u87 in fig 8 and rejection seemed just as good but vocal tone was much more present and forward sounding. Used a ribbon on the acoustic and was pretty hap...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

I hear DMM when done correctly is actually a superior method. Also that there's no one in the U.S. who can do it. I've just checked in with a cutting room and they said, expect long delays waiting for Japanese lacquers in high demand to reach engineers here in the states. I think right now is a rus...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

My guess is Jack White or Chris Mara will at least try to figure out how to start producing lacquers. Mara just expanded his electroplating operation, so I would imagine he has incentive. I do wonder about DMM facilities and the small lathe cutting operations. As I understand it, these are generall...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

Can someone clarify for me. The first time this was brought to my attention it was described as, "Oh know. This was the main company that cut vinyl masters. There will be no one left to do it." And I was like, "I know two other great companies who've done it for me. One is in my town." But then som...

Re: is a figure 8 a figure 8?

A condenser uses two diaphragms to achieve multiple patterns. In my experience the null is deeper on a ribbon. That's said, I've gotten surprisingly good result in situations like you described using condensers. Then again, the eq of of a ribbon might lessen the impact of that strummy guitar. If ti...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

I've been watching Reverb for a reasonably priced pcm42 forever ("reasonably" is not happening yet). Are the 41's just as cool? They seem to be less desirable, thus cheaper. They don't have the input limiter, or the digital read out for time in ms. It think everything else is the same. They sound r...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Picked up a Lexicon PCM41. Now I have to figure out which of my other digital delays will have to be sacrificed to make a spot for it. Good choice. Mine is one of my favorite things.

Re: UA Luna

the fucking channel strips in the mix window have polarity switches! Goddamnit, why doesn't PT have that!? that's all I got. That is wonderful. I have a friend who does some consulting for AVID and have mentioned this to him. A polarity reverse button near the fader somewhere would be AMAZING. I ha...
