I am really fascinated by dub music and have pulled off some dub delays on a few drum breaks on things I have recorded (ran the Memory Man off an aux) but it was more of a "Walking on the Moon" kinda whitewashed dub rip off. :wink: I have been thinking of digging through a bunch of my recordings and...

Yep I mixed monitors at one of their LA shows about a year and a half ago. Susanna is a sweetheart. I dig the CD, nothing to write home about, but I let my bartender borrow it and I think he's gonna throw it in the jukebox.

About 5 years ago they were doing this deal where you could get a PreSonus MP-20 and an Oktava Tube LDC for like $599. I thought Wow that's a pretty good deal. So I walk into GC in Pasadena and asked the guy for the deal, but instead of the tube mic I wanted the ML-52 ribbon mic. First he told me th...

About 3 months ago I walk into a local GC that usually has good used gear. In the pro audio section they have a fairly beat up Dolby 323 NR unit marked down from $4999 to $29 I ask the kid at the counter if the price was right, he told me yes so I told him I'd buy it. Near the dolby unit was an old ...

Wait so the new PCI slots aren't backwards compatible? I almost bought a late model G5 the other day to replace my worn out old 850MHz G4. So how am I supposed to use my UAD-1 card?

This is the reason why I record on tape. I hate all this upgrading crap.

Just get this and have both :wink: http://www.advancedaudiorentals.com/images/aws900.jpg What kind of mic pre's do you have? personally I'd go with the control surface. I think it's more important what you do with a mix then whet gear it goes through. You can have good front end but it doesn't reall...

About a year ago I recorded a band in ProTools which I rarely do (they didn't want to pay for tape and wanted to be able to edit everything). I did a few mixes "in the box" and didn't like the way things were going, it was really hard to mix with a mouse. Every mix I did sounded sub standard, I figu...

Some Sonex should work, you can just glue it on to the celling. It's not that expensive, and pretty light.

You could always stripe SMPTE on one of the tracks and lock it to your computer, then record 3 tracks at a time, but then you might as well get a 1" 8 track or something like that and lock it together. But I thought you were trying to move away from tape. Why not just get a rack of old ampex or scul...

Well out here when you run into kids from MI or kids in metal bands or any drummer under the age of 21 all you hear is how awesome Rush is. :shock:

I was drinking iced tea and when that keyboard intro started I almost gaged and had to run to the sink to spit it out I was laughing so hard. Then about 10 seconds later I took another sip, and then the vocals came in and once again I had to run to the sink to keep from spitting tea all over the pla...

I agree with most of you...

I totally agree that Led Zeppelin is way over rated.

Brubeck's "Time Out" isn't nearly as good as "Countdown: Time in Outer Space"

and Rush really annoys me after 2 songs.

It's a 456 thing. I had a box from 1992 that was total crap by 2005 but I have used 499 from the early 90's and have no problems. Also I think any 3M tape is bad by now. I went through a bunch or old reels of tape from the 80's about three years ago when Quantegy initially closed, and everything but...
