Re: Reverb Help

I've done the really short delay with a lot of feedback thing with Soundtoys Primal Tap and it works really and is super simple to get going. Yea, Primal Tap is neat too. I dig the distortion part of it. I haven't touched it since I got the Echoboy though. I don't think I've fully unleashed the pow...

Re: Reverb Help

If I was to grab another delay it'd be the Echoboy. It also emulates the Space Echo along with several other vintage gear. Plus, it's 50% off for the next week. The Echoboy Jr is only $29, but without many of the options the make Echoboy an intriguing buy. I've got alot of demoing to do this week w...

Re: What version of MacOS are you using & Why?

High Sierra and the most current PT update.

It blows. CPU spikes galore, and at random with no fix in sight. Avid and Apple collectively can eat shit.

Re: Let's talk substance

Weed can sometimes help me focus when I mix. I don't default to it (anymore), but if I can't get in the zone and stay there, I'll take a hit. Small amounts though, otherwise I get buried in the minutia a little too much. I definitely roll one up when I'm done for the day for a final spin through wha...

Re: When you love a LIMITER

Why not just replace those hits with another from somewhere else in the song? That's my approach. Super simple, works every time, costs zero dollars. A limiter or volume automation doesn't change the impact of the hit and those rogues smashes rarely sound good to me. Who knew you could hit a drum so...

Re: Frequency Sweeping/Unwanted Frequency Help

I do this too much. I've been realizing that lately. It's a huge distraction. What happens with me, is I sweep, find shit I hate, but you know, OF COURSE I hate it... I'm boosting something 12 f'ing decibels with an extremely narrow bandwidth. The problem is, my ears can't un-hear that after I bring...

Re: Reverb Help

Audio thing outer space is worth checking out. Killer space echo emulation (with spring reverb ) If I was to grab another delay it'd be the Echoboy. It also emulates the Space Echo along with several other vintage gear. Plus, it's 50% off for the next week. The Echoboy Jr is only $29, but without m...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Electronic Audio Experiments Mu Blaster - boost, etc., takes a really good sounding amp and makes it sound really really gooder bestly. The EQ alone is worth having. After another overdrive or distortion... has a refining quality and gigantic balls in the low mids. Earthquaker Devices Bows - germani...

Re: strange speaker problem

As embarrassed as you may have felt, here's one that will make you feel better... Yesterday I was reconfiguring my control room a bit (trying to figure out the hole in the bass in the listening position) and after moving my speaker stands, I decided to measure the distance between the 2 tweeters so ...

Re: Does anyone use overheads?

I have always really struggled with M/S. On paper, it seems like the coolest thing ever to me, but in the small number of instances where I've tried it, it sounds like my brain is getting sucked out of my skull when I bring the mics up. That's the only way I can describe it. ha. I quadruple check m...

Re: Laurel or Yanni, is my hearing severely compromised?

Are my ears no longer trustworthy for balancing frequencies...I only hear Laurel unless I lower the formant content of the recording???? https://youtu.be/SaOKeLM81Ng I don't think you should be worried about it. 1/2 the people that listen only hear one or the other, and I'm assuming that most of th...
