There's also a really great free plugin that lets you save a series of photographs and notes on each track. It's by Non-Lethal Applications and it's called Snapshot. It's pretty great!

Re: Recording Chain notation

I will sometimes note the mics used in the notes field at the bottom of the channel faders in PT, and occasionally the full signal chain, but the latter is more to keep me organized while I'm tracking. I don't ever use it as a reference later on.

Re: Plug-in suggestions for the minimalist studio

for fun/interesting/different the entire Soundtoys bundle is very worth having. Valhalla stuff is great. The FreqEcho is insanely fun and free. Supermassive too. Their Room reverb is superior to any other reverb in that style that I've tried. I miss an old PCM60 a lot, but this feels equally effortl...

Re: Headphone mix suggestions?

I bought one of these from Larry Crane for $20, I don't know... 15 years ago? It's BEAT UP, but it works and it gets crazy loud. Perfect for mobile gigs and overdub stuff at home. Probably not quite adequate for a real studio ha, but I'm riding it into the ground. I used to be in the camp of "let th...

Re: Tube amp guru, help me

So the Dr. Z repair department politely threw me some shade for using EH tubes and said I need to go for the Tung Sols as it is the tube of choice that they used in their design. Fair enough, I suppose. It's a $70 dollar question, and the third pair of tubes, but I'll give it a go. I feel like this...

Re: Tube amp guru, help me

It's interesting, I've used EHX almost exclusively since Groove Tubes got sold to Fender, and they've always been reliable in my amps and studio gear. I've had the same quad in my Hamptone preamp since 2006-2008 (somewhere in there) and only this past month have they gone to shit (microphonic). Same...

Re: keeping your stems clean?

I'll note that I prefer to reference from non-effected tracks, not least because effects and effect levels are going to change as the recording and mix progress. As well, hearing back, say, the lead vocal a few times without effects means that I hear all the warts, burps and farts. warm and farty

Re: keeping your stems clean?

You guys are making perfect sense (and one of you has a dog in your avatar who looks IDENTICAL to mine, so that's cool), but I think I did a really bad job of asking my question. Here's where I'm at, and I think I've solved my own problem at this point: I've printed my stems. They were printed thro...

Re: Acoustic Panels (DIY? Cheap?)

My basement ceiling is stuffed with 2 layers of insulation between the joists, then I covered that with packing blankets. You can def. still hear stuff upstairs, but it's very muffled and neither of my 2 dogs makes a peep when I'm down there, unless they hear me solo a vocal because then they think ...

Re: keeping your stems clean?

I don't understand Ableton at all, but when I print stems, I route channel output to a new channel input, record the affected audio to that new track, then disable the original track. If you can only print through your master buss (ugh), just disable everything that is on your master buss before you...

Re: yow..U67 inspired mics..

check out the advanced audio mics as well... supposed to be quite good. I've never tried the U67, but I had the CM47 and it was very nice. I know Tony had a couple of the AA mics too. I've used his FET47 inspired mic and the 414 inspired mics and I liked both a lot. The FET is really nice. It was t...

I don't think Pearlman has brought out a 67 design, but he totally should.
I think the Pearlman uses a k67 in the TMLE (TM2 + K67) mic.

Re: DAW Recording on Mac - Startup drive as storage drive in 2021

Why even consider chancing it? Hard drives are so inexpensive. Every kind of hard drive. This. Redundancy. Redundancy. Redundancy. I back up to 2 external drives, and in-progress sessions get backed up to the system drive as well. I work from my primary external drive. I've just always done it that...

Re: instrument DI box bang-for-buck

I don't really have a problem with DI bass, Wurly or synths. I just reviewed the Useful Arts DI, for the magazine and its EQ it simple and great on top of a nice tube path in the first place. I also noticed tonight that I think Free Ride has DI guitar with serious compression (LA3?) and it sounds c...

Re: instrument DI box bang-for-buck

What does going through a DI into your interface buy you, vs. straight in? Needs a through output. Interfaces never have those (that I know of anyway). Yeah, but good point brought up earlier that I just need a splitter to achieve the same thing. I may just do that, or I've been looking at the hamm...
