Romancing The (bad) Past

Hey all, I'm currently mixing archival music from the early-mid 70's.

Re: people with consoles

I think I had a long talk with Geoff Daking about this once, and he said to leave it on. The rush of current and filling capacitors at turn on is when the system gets stressed.

Re: Archives

I get it. I wonder if we had online subscription stuff in place that made updating difficult? I dunno. But yeah, buying 132 issues worth of content is also 23 years of work... and I can guarantee you it has exhausted me....

I don't own an airline but I can comment on the magazine: Current content is always free. Gear reviews are always free. Printed copies of the new issue mailed to you are free (In the US). PDF's of the new issue are free (in the world). If you've had a subscription for years, and maintained the accou...

Re: Interview Idea

I forgot to ask any questions and no one mentioned Jim. Seems crazy, looking back.

Sound Designer files

Does anyone have the ability and knowledge to convert an old Pro Tools session with Sound Designer II files into a current session? I have a mix client (and former Tape Op writer) who wants me to mix something by next Monday and he just discovered this old session is SDII. I'm sure he'd be fine with...

Re: U195 and too many midrange mics

I rarely sell mics. They all shine at some unexpected juncture.

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

If you can make it fun, then do it. It was fun to use the 238 recently and I get it. Between Tape Op and Pro Tools I’m sick of computers.
