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...

My 441 shows several signs of "uhhh, I accidentally whacked the snare mic during that take. Sorry."

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: Tell me about speaker stands

you want 'em as heavy and solid as you can make 'em. sand is good. my woodworker brother made me some nice ones: http://i398.photobucket.com/albums/pp66/Morespaceecho/Main%20Archive/studio%20stuff/speaker-stands.jpg Mine are homemade, similar to this, but not nearly as nicely finished, or finished ...

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...

Talking about how GJ doesn't really work a lot of the time (I agree) made me think about how 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 sk...

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...

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

I hear both simultaneously. I def. hear "laurel" more clearly, but "yanni" is there for sure.

Re: Does anyone use overheads?

I'm pretty much in the same camp as the OP, except I do use OH's in some way 100% of the time. I do try to get a nice overall image of the kit, rather than just the cymbals with them (I focus on the toms and batter side of the kick moreso that the snare), but it almost never works on its own, or eve...

Re: Mics that sound like a U67..

when Joel sold me his GT MD1a, he said it was his "67 mic for years" (paraphrased). I've only used it on vocals and FOK so far. For the latter, it wasn't my thing until I eq'd it a lot, but it was a location recording in a just OK sounding room. On vocals it's pretty damn nice though. First LDC I've...

Re: How high do you like your overheads (and why)?

Somewhere between not-that-high and higher. And it does depend on mikes. I used to use stereo overheads and stereo room. The revelation for me was going to a mono room mike; sometimes when channel-deficient even in lieu of overheads(!). Sounds great crushed. GJ See that crushed room mic is another ...
