Sounds like an organ through a tremelo effect.

Thanks, J. That makes sense. I'll look into a 29.97 capable automation system. Sounds like the Cybermix system would drift if set for 30 but recieving 29.97 - if it recognizes the code at all. MegaMix sounds interesting, but the breakout box doesn't have insert patch capability? I can easily see how...

Joel - good to know, thanks! Paul - Thanks for the input. I'm aware of the accuracy issue with the Cybermix. It seems to be worse with Win95 and higher and much more accurate under Windows 3.1. I've read a lot about repeatibilty issues with the Cybermix but as far as I can tell it repeats my fader m...

I'm looking at an ATI 8500 for Quicktime output to an NTSC video monitor. The Behringer Cybermix is an insert-based VCA automation system. It is sort of critical part of my workflow for mixing until I get something better. You make a good point - I could just keep everything in Pro Tools and stay at...

Among mix engineers it seems like about a 50/50 split on this issue. If you DO use a 2-mix compressor, make sure to keep your attack slow in order to let the transients through. It also helps to engage it at the beginning of the mix so that you mix TO it instead of switching it on towards the end of...

That's kinda what I'm thinking. The thing that concerns me is - if I'm using black burst as my master sync source and running 30 fps SMPTE from it... will it mess with the sync when they take the audio to the dubbing/mix stage (where it will be 29.97 fps)? Or will the pitch of the audio just lower a...

video sync?

I'm getting ready to move my studio and begin the process of doing some upgrades. I want the studio to be able to lock to picture, so I'll be purchasing a black burst generator and a MIDI Timepiece AV to clock the digital devices to video sync (as well as to clock Pro Tools to incoming SMPTE from an...

Re: Pulling out the old 4 track...

What a trip. I just bought a Teac 3340s with the intention of making a record on it. We've done basics for 7 songs already, and it has been a blast so far. It's incredibly liberating to just record and bounce as you go, no backtracking or fixing, working on pure instinct, and accepting the flaws tha...

Re: crap for sale

I've got a buyer for the Dokorder, but the DAT machine and Cybermix are still available...

Re: Tascam MS-16... help! Tech needed in Los Angeles.

I'm threading it according to the diagram on page 4-1 of the manual.

Good to know I don't need a new pinch roller, though.

I actually did find a tech at one of the big studios that's going to help! Wish me luck...

Tascam MS-16... help! Tech needed in Los Angeles.

I have a Tascam MS-16 that I bought used that won't play tapes. The pinch roller doesn't move towards the capstan when I press "play". I can push the pinch roller down in "play" mode, and it will stay engaged, but the reels don't move. Sometimes it will actually play backwards for a few seconds... I...
