Re: Your favorite general use eq plugin

The PT EQ, especially the one band for cutting/fintering lows. Sometimes for other things. The T-rack Pultec or PSP NobleQ for obvious color. I like the Wave API and Helios a lot. I fing TDR SlickEQ really great, because I like clicking through the different models to see what's best. I also really ...

Re: Waddaya's workin' on this Forf weekend?

There's an acoustic song that's been giving an artists a hard time, so that's been a bit of the focus. I'm reviewing the new Rode TF-5, and they sound quite nice on acoustic guitar.

Kind of a light weekend.

Re: the return of the ubertar ribbon mic

In you first example, with the box closed, are you playing a dobro, or is that what the "chamber" of the box does to the sound of the guitar?

Tried that once a long time ago. It wasn't horrible, but I'm not going there anymore.

Re: Mixing with the band there

I discovered quite accidentally that I preferred mixing without the band present. It was when I first opened my room. People were supposed to show, but I got a message that they needed to start later. I decided to just get going, and the mix shaped up nicely. So nicely, in fact, that I printed it to...

Re: Printing An Effect To Its Own Tape Track

This is something I've done a ton of times. More often its with a slightly weird thing that I think I'm not going to get back when it comes to mix time. Print the effect to another track and then its always there.

Re: U195 and too many midrange mics

Ny thought is if things are paid for, they are worth having around, unless you hate them, or are trying to fund something else.

Re: tracking headphones 2019 (for the performers)

I bought some inexpensive Monoprice headphones for tracking that sound pretty good, are quite inexpensive, hold tight, and have removable cables. https://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=120&cp_id=12001&cs_id=1082302&p_id=8323&seq=1&format=2 I have a few pairs of the ones that Tony uses.

Re: The Bad Plus

They played here in early December. What I really loved is how dialed in to one another they were. There was a real sense of creating in the moment, as an ensemble. They are quite engaging.

Re: Tracks imported from Mackie DL32R are hissing. They weren't before.

I figured it out. It's not the Mackie's fault. It's Audition! Whenever I render the individual wav files as a batch process, it adds noise to random tracks. I have no idea why, but that's where it's happening. I have to render my individual wav files one by one, but it works- without noise! Has any...
