Re: I don't know what a stem is!!!

I find a lot of young recordists calling all tracks stems. It gets a little confusing. I asked someone who "makes beats" if I could get individual tracks for a project, and he said "you mean stems?" I said I wanted everything separate, he answered "yeah, stems."

Re: 8 Different dynamic mics as overheads

PICARD: That is remarkable. Why don't you play something?  NELLA: You start and I'll jump in.  PICARD: What shall we play?  NELLA: What were you working on before I came in?  PICARD: Bach, the third Brandenburg.  NELLA: Perfect. Go ahead.  (Picard starts, but gets lost when she joins in)  PICARD: I...

Re: 8 Different dynamic mics as overheads

I'm a hack In all seriousness, even cats like Vinnie (one of the greatest EVER) there will always be subtle differences. I could have been more scientific and I can play the tune in my sleep and be pretty damn consistent, but I wanted to have a single performance. I also wanted to be a little time ...

Re: 8 Different dynamic mics as overheads

What we need here is a bot drummer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfawCDKAfAo I have recorded musicians that can duplicate their performances to where you really cannot tell the difference between takes. It can be done. Yeah, get your shit together Tony. I'm a hack In all seriousness, even cats l...

Re: 8 Different dynamic mics as overheads

Even more interesting now that I've listened to several bars of each. Very interesting to hear the subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle differences in EQ/brilliance, output, amount of high-end smearing or lack, etc. The ATM25 has a much brighter quality in that application than I would have thought! ...

That looks fascinating Tony. I can't listen now, but I will.

ATM25 as an overhead! What will they think of next?

Re: 8 Different dynamic mics as overheads

I just jumped over to check this out. Super cool project, very well organized. Thanks for doing it. Man, I can see how the 421 is a great tom mic because they seem to make the toms come alive even from several feet away. Yeah, that's totally true. I thought it was a little chunky on the cymbals, th...

Re: Tell me about speaker stands

Also, I figure I want to measure to get my ear altitude and the spot around the middle of the speaker/tweeter zone straight on. This makes sense right? ears level with either the middle of the speaker or the tweeter, depends on the speaker design. i have tweeters at ear level here. on topic blast f...

Re: I-net collabs

I've done it a few times. One project I had a few years back started out as a long distance collaboration. The other person was about 4 hours north of me. I would send him tape loop sound colages, he'd sketch out a song over top and send it back, then I'd add another layer and so on and so on. Afte...

Mine are the DIY plywood and 2x4 design. I have Primacoustic recoils on them and those things are fantastic.

Re: drummers without sound holes on their kicks!

Cable out the mounting hole, front head back on the drum. I'm sure some sort of compression was used, but I can't recall what. Here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hA-g6yqUh4 Nice. Good overdriven vocal sound too. Did you put those through a guitar amp? No, I still had an Aurora GTQ2 at that...

Re: "On kicks with different mics like ya do"

I wish more mics, both dynamic, and SDC were side address. Have you tried the Shure Beta 181? Super cool, super small, great sounding mics. i haven't, but i'm curious (no tapeop review yet?!). have you? would love to get a more musical side address SDC. the ATM450 always sounds a little honky to me...
