Re: Orban 111b

Well. That works. I hit the Pro Tools new green Input monitoring button and there it is. Thanks, smart people. So how are you routing it? Out one channel, in another? If you just create an aux and ad it as a hardware insert, then bus whatever to it, you shouldn't have to use the input mon switch.

Re: Orban 111b

check what Dave is saying, but also see if Low Latency Monitoring is off. If it isn't, try toggling that to off.

I don't know why, but sometimes having LLM on fucks up all my hardware inserts.

Those look handy. Tell us how you like it.
Also curious!

New gear for me: Capi LC25 EQ. Killer on bass so far.

Re: Mixing your own band's record...

I tore it down and started fresh. Zero'd out the EQ's and compressors, etc. Simplified as well. reduced 2 mics on guitar cabs to just the best sounding one... stuff like that. Already like it better. We'll see.

Also, big ups to Powers whiskey.

Mixing your own band's record...

... without losing your f*cking mind. How? I've been in the throes of anxiety for a bit now, working on my band's 2nd LP. The raw tones are great. The rough mixes sound awesome, and are a great starting point. So why do I hate it now that I've started mixing for real? I think I'm just doing too much...

Re: Beyer m88 on kick / pop filter

really? I don't know man. I've used mine on kick a bunch, as well as floor tom and bass cab... stuff with lots of low end. Have never noticed anything weird that would necessitate a pop filter. I suppose your mileage may vary, but I'd save that $30 for a nice bottle of bourbon or several Five Guys c...

Re: Sytek no longer making the MPX 4aii?

Just stumbled on their website as I'm debating selling one of mine and saw it's discontinued. i guess there are probably an awful lot of them out there, but figured there would still be a market for these? just surprising is all. these still hold up pretty damn well, and I can't think of anything b...

Re: m160 vs m130

Never used an M130, but you def. won't regret an M160. They're so great. Far as pick up pattern, the M160s are tight. I find they give a lot more left / right separation than condensers I've used. I like that about them. You can take advantage of that to get some good tom separation in your OH mics,...

Sometimes there's no substitute for going to a place that has a selection and actually trying them on.
I wish that existed where I live. Guitar Center is the closest I get, and the one here is like the bodega of Guitar Centers.

Re: Headphones and comfort

I've got some Sony MDR-7506 that I've always felt had a pretty light/soft feel - especially after I replaced the original pads with the Beyerdynamic velour pads. But the Sony's have that dang issue with static electricity (anyone that has ever owned these probably knows what I'm talking about). I r...

Re: Headphones and comfort

sounds like the clamping strength is the issue, which will probably be the issue on all Closed type headphones (i believe the DT-770 are as well). Try an open back headphone like the AKG K240 Sextett or newer K240. I use those for listening to casual music at work and for all my studio stuff, there...
