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. I like these...

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...

Re: No fancy tube mics - am I missing out?

If it sounds good stop buying gear and just make records. Fuck all these forums and gear marketing. Oops, did I say that? Many years ago I was recording something with Steve Gursky, who used to be on the forums as “Loudist”. I asked him something like “Steve. You recorded CSN with the SM7. What was...

Re: Mixing a band with a single, mono electric guitar

When I know I'm doing a single guitar, no other chordal instrument, minimal thing, I put 2 mics on the guitar amp. I generally use mics that sound somewhat different, but haven't don't 2 different amps in forever. Panning will vary, but this is one of the times I don't mind hard panning, thought I'm...

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

Is the second song significantly softer? Could it be that the s/n ratio was just better on the first one? Nope. Once I started hearing the noise, I went back and reopened the original track I had mixed. It's got the same noise problem on the same tracks! The s/n ratio on the normal tracks is fine, ...

Re: Monitor dilemma

NS10 (and I assume the CLAs) are not good sounding speakers. They can give you certain information, and that can be good, but they are kinda rough to listen to. I had a pair for a few years, and even when I'd try to commit and do the bulk of a project using them, it was always really hard to follow ...
