Re: $25 boundary mic

I rec'd my pair a cuppla daze ago at the low price (blowing on nails graemlin) but I'll hopefully get at 'em tomorrow or this weekender. I'm thinkin' a acoustic guitar and a voc - depends on what becomes :high: necessary. They certainly look legit. I'll post a link and all y'all can hear 'em and no...

Re: Business entities for studio work

Sole prop here. Regardless of which way you go, don't do your own taxes, get an accountant. They're worth it just for the time/trouble they'll save you, never mind the money. And you can write off their fee. YES! I always say the money I pay my accountant to do my taxes is the best money I spend al...

Re: How much do you "fix" without telling your client?

I do a lot of that stuff IN PRODUCTION with the band. Me, too, but I do a lot of file-share recording. What I meant was that I'll make suggestions while the band is tracking, or during those rare times where there's time for pre-production. We'll sometimes shorten intros, or interludes that maybe f...

Re: How much do you "fix" without telling your client?

Little things like a rouge note, .... That might require a make-up session! :twisted: Working on my own and my friend's stuff, I'll do big edits, move solo sections around, even cut and paste backing vocals over each other (ex., chorus 1 and 2 over chorus 3, or replacing chorus 3). I also find myse...

Re: How much do you "fix" without telling your client?

I am not a default editor (there are a lot that are) but there are times when the focus was elsewhere and a little blip of some sort is bothersome over time. Little things like a rouge note, or a weak snare hit. Things that might be missed during basics, because we were all listening for feel in pic...

Re: How much do you "fix" without telling your client?

Keeper takes are usually decided collectively. I almost always comp vocals with the singer at the moment, unless I'm asked to make the choices because the singer or band is having a hard time deciding, or just isn't interested in that. Same thing with solos. If there is an edit requested, it's done ...

I actually enjoy how the balance changes as the fade out happens.

Thanks. BTW, I finally took your advice and tried the TOMB ribbon as a "knee" mic. Sounded awesome! (After I took away the drummer's rack toms...)
I'm glad it worked for you.

Re: Recording solo violin

I've had really good luck with the TOMB Ribbon on violin above, around 8-10 feet up. Usually, I use room mics too.

Re: Sound Toys Little Plate

That's my go-to set up. The Abbey 3, I think, is the one I use a lot. I'm using a setting of my own, echoboy in front - decapitator - gate; on snare and toms to add a quick "room" sound to them and it sounds great. I got the idea listening to "Superunknown". There's a consistent thing on the snare ...
