Re: Time for some home studio upgrades...help me spend $10K

A friend was just today reco'ing to me the Chroma +. I have a Chroma 500 and its pretty great. I use the Royal Blue (Neve) transformer in it and the tone shaping options it has on board are useful and can go from clean to full on blistering fuzz. I love this on guitars but it's impressive on vocals...

Until my girlfriend gets sick of seeing them everywhere and throws them out while I'm at work.

Re: unhyped kick drum mic

I wouldn't necessarily consider a D112 to be scooped. It's pretty mid-heavy to my ears. I'll second drumsounds' recommendation for the M88. I've had good luck with that. RE20 isn't a bad choice either, but it's less instantly gratifying, IMO. The bonus with buying either one, is you also have a gre...

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

It's hooked up to the tank in my Gemini II. I love the sound so far, but there is ground hum I am having trouble tracking down. I'll report back about the hum thing. I'm assuming it's just my old-as-fuck verb tank. That amp has seen some shit for sure. Do you have any other tanks to try it out on? ...

Re: Using reverb to differentiate lead and backing vocals

I may suck at reverb, or maybe I'm just lazy, but I usually hate having a bunch of them on different things. That seems to never sound right to me, unless I'm doing something unorthodox with it for effect. I want it to homogenize things a bit and add some space to the overall picture. What I like to...

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

Allen & Heath GL2400-24. As recommended by someone on TOMB (sorta, they said GL2800). Not even set up yet. I haven't been this excited about a piece of gear in a long time. WTF is the matrix for in a self-recording context? There's shit about this board I barely understand. Gonna go set it up... Th...

Re: tube amp burning smell...

Very different amp, but I was tracking with a V4 once, noticed a burning smell (not dust)... when I looked in the back, one of the tubes was glowing like a 1000w light bulb. Actually melted the socket.

I'm guessing you would have noticed something like that, but figured I'd mention it.
