how would you arrange these mics?

hi, i could use a little advice on a drum miking scheme: in addition to the usual close snare, kick, and tom mics, i want to aim a tube ldc at the kick from a few (3, 4?) feet away. i would like to place a ribbon mic at around the same distance, but as a mono overhead. to avoid phase problems, what ...

i was about to start a very similar thread but now i don't have to. i've been at both ends of this: i worked at a studio where the manager acted like the rates were a secret, even on the phone. if someone called to ask about the rates, i couldn't tell them, even though each room and engineer had a r...

it's your record and it should be done the way you want. but, i don't think of mastering as part of the (MY)artistic process. that's not to say it isn't an art or anything, just that the mastering process is something above my head, and that's why i pay someone else to do it. i'll communicate my goa...

you call nonsense on someone's opinion? there absolutely is a difference between letting a performer use the measure how they see fit (for example swinging, not swinging, dragging) while having the downbeats as a reference, and doubling the amount of information their ears need to process. i've subd...

i swear i'm not trolling, but i have no problem with the quarter click. it's the exact feeling of the metronomes forced on us all as children/ students. the rule was always that if you hear the click you're not on it. the problem with beats and subdivisions (other than those provided by the instrume...

wirelessly monitoring from a different room

i'm assuming that, with all the advances in everything, i can set something up so that i can listen to my DAW (run on an older G5 through an ART TubeFire interface) on a stereo in another part of the house. this would cut rendering and data transfer out of the mix-checking equation, which would rule...

the spring reverb tube in a guitar amp

Can it be overdriven or is the tube driving the spring not part of the signal chain? i guess what i'm asking is whether that particular tube colors the signal, and would other tubes result in different sounds?

thanks

i hated tapewounds. they were actually much "deader" than flats, and the tape doesn't survive even moderate gigging. people dislike flats because they have a much higher tension at the same pitch (making them difficult and even uncomfortable to play), but i searched around for a long time and found ...

i really enjoyed this, thanks for sharing!
my only comparable experience was when Mastodon's Leviathan came out we played it on the living room stereo and the record had no vocals! it sounded normal everywhere else, but on that cd changing POS, it was an instrumental record . . .

that's a good point - for a lot of projects, that sound wouldn't be appropriate. i wish i had also done a version where it hit the tape a bit more lightly, which i guess would be a little less smooshed. i'm now wondering if it would be cool to send some tracks out (like a drum buss) but not the enti...

an AB of tape versus no tape in mixdown

Hi all, I just finished an experiment and figured I'd share. I recorded and mixed a song on a DAW. The "control" was then rendered, while the "tape" one was sent to my old TASCAM and then back into the DAW for rendering. so that's the only difference. here's the link: http://urethrafranklin0.bandcam...
