Still waiting on a call back from the foamers, but I'm thinking, in terms of reflections, am I better building drywall walls, with inslation on the exterior, or leaving the raw steel walls, and if not foam, maybe fiberglass or polystyrene panels exposed on it?

Hmm, there is an outfit in town that do it, wonder if it's worth asking for a quote.

Damn, that really looks good and I would love to have the shed left in the round, but I'm seeing like $600 for 600 bd ft. for that insulation stuff, even if I cut back my plans to 1/4 of the space instead of a half thats $2500 gone.

Where did you get it from?

Ooh, that looks very cool, what did you use on the walls, some kind of spray on insulation? My main thing is finance, I can't afford the $6-10K for a concrete slab of such size, and it's a dirt floor. I suppose I could do a deck floor wall to wall and then spray the walls, but a twenty foot ceiling ...

I'd like to have the lofty claim of seasonal insulative reasons, but it's mainly cost. I've been in this place a few years now, and not done anything with the shed, because it wasn't floored, and doesn't have power (though that I can fix), but to even get half of it concreted looked to be an expensi...

There was the M.I.K.E. article or the Great Lake Swimmers? M.I.K.E. was a circular bin, split down the middle, and they just walled the thing with panels, it's main thing was portability I think. GLS just recorded in an old grain bin. In my case, I think the steel is more incidental, I won't be moun...

Build inside a steel shed, starting it right

I'm planning to move my recording setup from my basement, to a space to be built inside a large (40'x80') quonset hut in my yard. It'll be a practice space / open plan recording area / possible performance space. t'll be a 'deck' like construction above a dirt floor, as it's too expensive to concret...

Mainly because PTF will only run on the old 95 based versions of Windows, the NT based ones will not run PTF.

So it's M-Audio, MBox or nothing for Pro-Tools?

What happens if I finally buy the MOTU 24io I've had my eye on for my main setup, am I only able to use Digital Performer with it?

Pro-Tools Free Replacement / Substitutes?

So my little Sony Vaio laptop, which I've left running Windows ME crashed and had to be re-installed, and I can't find my CD-R of Pro-Tools free. I run M-Powered on my main machine but have been using the laptop, PTF and an off-brand USB interface for making 'field' recordings. So what are my altern...

Today I was salvaging the transformer from a '57 for another project, I found rather than boiling it in a pan of water, after removing the capsule and XLR, I put it in the oven on a piece of foil for 15 minutes at the lowest setting the oven had, 150 degrees Farenheit, and the transformer just pulle...

I'm sure that could be arranged, which venue do you work at, and how do they get in contact? They're looking for places to play.

Don't know how much of a difference it will make, the Acoustic Cab is a W-Bin design, whereas the T-18 is an compact scoop, so the rear of the driver is accessible, it hangs down in front of the horn. Does that alter any of your ideas for a mic technique? Generic pic follows: http://www.copystars.co...

I had thought maybe a PZM on a large board in a 'sweet spot' a few feet in front and ask the bass player to stand out the way if he could?

Here we go rejuvenating an old thread. I have the same issue here, a bass player, who plays with large amounts of feedback (it's a fuzzy 70's rock kind of band), and uses a folded horn (an EV T-18 ) which seems essential to his playing style. I can get a decent signal from the DI out from the amp, a...

Current Cover Art Gear Geeking Question

Probably a long shot, but on this months cover is a stairway with the speakers on each stair, on the 4th step up is a speaker with a giant 3" magnet held in place by three large panhead screws (I'm guessing) and almost heart shaped cutouts in the stamped frame. Does anyone know the origin or manufac...
