Re: 500-series faceplate alignment?

I have a Sweet 10. Everything fits perfectly. I also have the RND 6-space with the nuts that move around. I don't think it matters. I find the RND to be a little more of a pain to swap things in and out of, but I'm talking like the most minimal amount of "pain" you could imagine. I would look to oth...

Re: WTB: Blank 500-series panels

Sort of a random question, but do you or does anyone you know have access to a 3D printer? Maybe your local library? I made a CAD file for blank panels a couple years ago, because f*ck buying them for $20 a piece. I could send it to you if you want. They aren't as pretty as a metal one, but they do ...

FS: Radial TankDriver 500

Radial TankDriver 500-series spring tank driver. Cool box. I used it with whatever tanks are in the backs of my old Ampeg combos. Works well. I just think I kind of hate reverb, so I rarely use it anymore. It's mint. 1st time it came out of my rack was for these photos. $225 shipped. Not opposed to ...

Re: HOT mix/mastering levels and streaming services

I'm working with some different artists who are on a label that is very focussed on Spotify. (I'm sure that's fairly common now that it's the primary way music is consumed.) They want their songs to "pop" a bit more on the playlists and my preference is generally to not go too aggressive with compr...

Re: HOT mix/mastering levels and streaming services

I'm not sure how Spotify works in this regard, but when I use the "soundcheck" feature on my iPhone, simple acoustic tracks or just quieter tracks in general are always a lot louder than say, a doom band with 46 dimed Model T's on the track. I hate it. Could just be that. You could download the trac...

Re: Latest Gear You've Un-Acquired....

Just went through 2 Tonelux Equalux's that were busted out of the box. IDK what's happening over there, but yikes. Not replacing it with another.

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

A SansAmp Bass Driver. I've only wanted one for over 20 years! I scoffed at them for so long. Then on my last pre-covid lockdown project, we were tracking bass direct with the intention of re-amping later on... I split the signal, one dry DI, one SansAmp (just so it wouldn't sound so boring to the ...

Re: leslie speakers and stereo recording

Huh! I retract my advice then. Good to know Actually, its still good advice. I can't remember who, but back in the early internet days (maybe even rec.audio.pro) Fletcher or Harvey Gerst suggested basically micing the corners, front and side, and it can be quite effective. What happens with that mi...

Re: leslie speakers and stereo recording

I agree with Rodgre's thought about the proximity of the mics. That was my first thought .

Tony (Drumsound) ran a guitar solo through his for me a while back and it sounds very stereo when I hard-pan the horn channels. His insight will be helpful.

Re: Cabling: What's the cheapest 24 channel TRS snake you'd buy?

I like Redco's house brand stuff.

I think Hosa is totally fine though, especially if you're not going to be plugging and un-plugging and working the connectors with any regularity. I used a Hosa snake for many years before I got my patchbay and needed to get all new stuff and never had any issues.

Re: Headphones for occasional mix reference

I love the ATH-M50x's. I'm wearing them right now. Mixing, tracking, casual listening... Not the most accurate, but once you figure out where the translation flaws are, you're fine. They are a little tight. That's probably my only complaint. I like them so much more than those Sony's every place see...

Re: Check in Thread

I feel despondent. I spent most of my day yesterday bouncing between working on a podcast for my job (public library) and pacing around my property not knowing what to do. This is so rough. I watched a live feed of a close friend running from the police last night with tear gas in the background. It...

Re: Coronavirus Health Precautions for Studios

I'm starting to get into the same situation here. Recording studios were permitted to reopen last week and I've already had some calls about it. I'm in no rush at all though. My room (a repurposed garage) is too small to effectively distance and the washroom facilities are in my house. Beyond that,...
