My method...

I just went through the outs of my Tascam 122MKII deck into the ins of my audio interface (MOTU 828), then recorded live into garageband, audacity, tracktion 2, where I can then edit everything into different tracks. I've heard good things about BIAS SoundSoap to clean things up a bit, but have not ...

I wouldn't worry about it too much. I believe a lot of their audio is recorded with simple mics onto mini-disc (especially interviews and anything involving recording in the field), so I'm guessing anything with reasonable fidelity would work. They will probably edit your story in a studio and add c...

BareKnuckle Warpigs? (best pickups for metal)

So, I am looking to put together a Floyd-Rose bridged, super-fast fretboarded, thin-necked, lightweight guitar for heavily distorted metal leads. Most of the vintage guitars I was considering do not pass the girlfriend test (Nightswan, Warlock, Mockingbird, etc), so I went looking for a modern build...

Many options...

Do not discount Peavy! I thought most of them were crap too, but my friend had a little solid state combo that KILLED...wish I could remember the model number. Good cutting metal tone on it's own, and tremendous synergy with a big muff. I have not heard any of the following in person, but you might ...

"New" 602

Well, Paiste continues to move forward in terms of the processes they use to produce most of their cymbals. What this means is that there is little chance a "reissue" will be exactly like any of the previous incarnations of the 602 line. The Giant Beat reissues for example, while quite nice, apparan...

cymbal love

I've only played Sabian, Istanbul Agop, Bosphorus, and Spizzichino (hey I'm not complaining!)...but I've been quite interested in the blue label rides (as well as sound creation and mellow rides)...they seem to record very well. When I get a sizzle ride, I'm debating between one of the 602's and a B...

Has anyone every tried a jazzmaster (or similar) with the Fender Bigsby trem? Is it a significant upgrade? The prices of vintage jazzmasters are just too much for me, but I've been seduced by some of the American custom-shop "pinup" models...

I have the K271...very good isolation, flat but not overly analytical (so you can enjoy music with them as well as mix). While not absolutely necessary, pairing them with a good headphone amp yields a significant improvement in sound. If you pick up a pair, give yourself some time to adjust to how t...

Has anyone ever heard of a Celitic war horn which was often made to include a boar's head? I think the instrument is called a "Carnax." There was something about it some time ago on NPR where they interviewed a guy who was making and playing reproductions of this instrument. As the horn is not reall...

Hello. If you are going to choose to record with a mac, please see this thread on 'getting started' over at OSXAudio: http://www.bigbluelounge.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3559 It is one of the more comprehensive (and less condescending) responses to this type of query I have seen online, and much of ...

Just how universal are universal guitar/bass cases?

Hello. Not the sexiest gear acquisition thread topic, I know, but I am searching for a couple hard-shell cases to fit my first guitar, an odd-shaped (sort of explorer-like) Washburn A5-V, and my favorite bass, a superb 'mojo'-infused Ovation Magnum III. Do you think those universal cases would work ...

Try a Dragonfly on the clarinet...though I have a lot more experience playing clarinet than recording the instrument.

Interested in what you end up choosing and why.

My custom Japanese Prophecysound Black Sheep Fuzz (meaty Roland Beebaa clone), or the Zvex fuzz factory. Push either with the Zvex Machine and things get ugly. :twisted: Though I have never used a Dirty Boy Afro Fuzz (or any of the other Blues Saraceno pedals), it would likely be on my shortlist. I'...

Wrong review

Hi. The Neve Portico 5012 does not have a di. The review in issue #49 gushing about bass was for the Wunder Audio PEQ1R New Revision "A," which is a pre/eq combo. (www.wunderaudio.com) --ryan p.s. I'm guessing the Neve is a great sounding pre, check out some samples/comparisons here: http://www.thel...
