i dunno, i kind of think it's exciting when you hear the snare buzz with the kick. that's what it sounds like when you hear a drummer playing.

you wanna REALLY get me excited, let me hear the snare buzzing and resonating when the drummer isn't even playing and it's the bass guitar intro. DO IT LIVE!

Weber makes great speakers. my friend who builds custom cabinet uses them in all of his cabs.

they sound great to me, live and recorded, although i am far from a speaker snob.

Just purchased a TEAC 80-8. questions about alignment!

hi, 1/2 inch 8 track reel to reel. stoked! anyone know where to get an alignment tape for this thing? according to the manual, i need an IEC tape at 15ips. i'm guessing it's hard to find these nowadays? i'm also pretty much clueless on how to get tape for this thing, as well as pretty much anything ...

you could buy the varifi, which works. or you could download the massey TD5 for free and set it on bass drop track and then set the output to another channel and record. mess around with the td5 "tape speed" for a bit until you get a usable part and then just edit the tail end of the slow down into ...

i did this awhile ago, and i had both drummers facing each other and put 2 figure 8 mics in between them for the OHs/full kit. i mic'd everything else normally, and put a moving blanket draped over a stand between their kick drums. i think it worked out ok.

Also most people wish they made a control surface just like this but without the 16 mic pres because most people do not want them and that would bring the cost down a lot.
yeah tell me about it. that would be great. are there any 3rd party control surfaces that do this?

How does the digidesign control 24 work with a 002?

what kind of connections are we talking about? firewire from the control 24 to the 002 then my Mac? or do you just bypass the 002 altogether? also, are there different versions of the control 24 for use with LE vs HD? i'm wanting to buy a used one for my 002 setup, and want to make sure i know what ...

I don't know much, but I'd venture that doubling your RAM would give you a nice boost. And there's a Logic forum on the Apple site that porbably has some good applicable info. Just don't do like I did, and buy 2 more gigs of RAM in the assumption that your computer has the slots available. I had to...

What to do for general clean up on a Mac Pro

hi, i know this is probably a no brainer for a lot of you, but i've had my mac pro about a year and a half and haven't done any sort of defrag, or disk clean up, or whatever it is. i've noticed pro tools slowing down a little bit (ie the spinning rainbow icon) when adding tracks etc. which it didn't...

cool, it sounds nice. nothing too crazy, just a really nice kick sound that works well with the kit. i have a question, the diagram said it was a closed drum head. how did you get the mic in there? did you take the front head off , put the mic in there and then put the head back on? or am i confused?
