Wow, it's been a few years since I've posted here, just checking back to see what I've been missing. I've been recording a lot of acoustic projects lately. I was taught that popular position at the 12th fret mumbojumbo - but in all honesty, I didn't start getting great acoustic sounds til I did away...

I've never used an XY on drums and been happy about it.. The problem with XY overhead is that all the important stuff ends up in the left (or right depending on mix perspective), and it feels off center. I like my Kick, snare, and hats to blast equally though the mix, but with a big stereo image. I ...

For convincing piano's on a budget I really like my Roland XP30, I picked it up about 8 years ago for $600 loaded with extra sound banks (but the stock pianos are excellent). I prefer it over the pianos in pretty much anything you can get your hands on for under $1000, and still prefer it over many ...

The Drummer's skill IS the only key to getting that sound......and the ability of you to explain to him what you want. ANY drummer can't do that.....that's what talent is for.....Mics,pre-amps,knowledge, DAW, plugins, rooms, mic positioning.....are all bunk to an actually GREAT drummer. I agree man...

Oh dude, I love that sound.. It's really easy to get when you track hats alone. I like to make hihat loops since I record a lot of solo stuff and drums aren't my strongest area. I like to do MS, but I run the center into a saturated and crunchy compressor. For the sides I like to back the mic off a ...

What's wrong with turning down (or up) the output on the last plugin already existing on the bus? Don't all plugin's have the ability to function as a volume plugin - some even on bypass...?

I'm a little confused at where the device is plugging into your signal path. Are you using the effects loop from an amplifier so that the "effects send out" connects into the EQ and then the EQ output returns to the "effects return input" (or however they might be labeled? Or is this something you'...

So you need to follow the usual procedures for troubleshooting: Do you have an oscilloscope? Multimeter? How willing are you to go sleuthing for schematics? Jim W's answer is good info - you told us some of the semiconductors, but didn't mention the power supply. Sorry guys, I'm not entirely savvy....

Well, in 13 years, as you can probably imagine, I've used it in a million ways with a million different cables. It's always noisey, but guitar and bass amps are the worst for sure. I'd like to wish it were that simple, but it's not. It's my sound, and the real bummer is that a substitute isn't possi...

Well, I think that's a pretty sensible place to start. Thanks guys.. I'm gonna look into this. I actually have a hum eliminator - I bought it for something else, ended up not needing it and loaned it to a friend. Maybe I can get it back this week and check it out. I'll keep you posted, I might have ...

This probably wont help, but if it gets you in the right direction then it's not a complete waste of time.

Scroll about 1/3 of the way down.

But probably not... There's probably no standard to any ol' 8 pin config, so sorry to bother..

OK, any ideas on what kind? I'm not real knowledgable of compononets and values and such. Any preferred brands and models I should order? Affordability is somewhat of a factor - though I'd be willing to pay dearly when it comes down to it. Even just cutting the noise in half would put at a much more...
