Re: Alesis HD24 - Still a decent option?

By visual reference, I mean the segmented LED VU for each channel. I'm sure you know what I mean, just trying to be clear. Even when bumpping the red zone, I find the HD24 to be very forgiving....not clipped. But I never slam it.

Re: Alesis HD24 - Still a decent option?

Visual reference only. Since live recording is dependant on the FOH guy. If it sounds ok (not a distorted mess) In the room, then there is no problem. Occasionally is ask for some gain staging to get me out of the red on the kick and snare. Other nights I am the FOH....no issues. Great bands sound g...

Re: Alesis HD24 - Still a decent option?

I own two HD24 units. I have recorded literally thousands of hours on them without a single issue. I keep one in a 4-u SKB case & carry a bag of insert cables for recording in clubs directly from the house mixer in discreet multitrack (or at least as discreet as a night club performance gets). The o...

I have been using an Alesis HD24 hard disc recorder with great success since 2009. Its more than you are asking for with 24 tracks, but they can be had for little money these days. I recently bought a backup unit in excellent condition with an SKB 4U case for $150.00. I do location live recording ex...

High pass at 40hz or so, followed by really fast compression @ 4 to1 has worked for me in the past. You can also find the frequency of the click & notch a lot of it out.

I used to believe that paper in oil caps did not go bad. My Klipsch cornerhorns had these type caps & after 40 years, they were definately bad. As a result the speakers sounded harsh & spitty, very fatiguing to listen to. I did a re-cap of the crossovers & the cornerhorns are now singing sweetly. Yo...

Worst Movie About Recording Studio(s)?

What, in your opinion is the worst movie that involves a recording studio? There was a real stinker a few years ago about a ghost who exacted revenge in a recording studio. The "studio" was extremely laughable, consisting of an SM58 and a Peavey PA head (the square box variety) which was lying on it...
