Re: Audioscape Opto compressor?

haven't tried that one. I had the Warm Audio WA-2A for awhile and sold it. Then I picked up the Klark Teknik KT-2A (brand new they are <$400 and if you find refurb/used... I think I got mine for about $300 "open-box"). And it's Ok, but I'm lazy and I find myself going to the UAD (especially the "gra...

Re: MD 409 in pieces

pretty sure the MD409 has a transformer output.

A friend had one he carried around for Saxophone duty. Best sounding sax mic I've heard. Of course he was a great player too so maybe any mic would sound good on him...

Re: Best Saturation For Specific Instruments

I use SoundToys Devil-Loc Deluxe for a lot of stuff, although I think it would be a bit much for a whole mix. but drums, vocals, guitars... all really nice if you want to destroy it (but you don't have to because it has a mix control...).

Re: Where do you buy band stickers?

so I have a laser printer and a computer so I said phuc it and decided to buy some knock-off Avery labels and do it myself. For the first batch I printed about 60 2" round stickers (sold as labels). I can also get 500 of these for about $10 via Amazon, so.... Avery templates are free. The most diffi...

Where do you buy band stickers?

Looking to buy some stickers for a band. It's a simple black and white logo. I'm thinking the 2x2 might be kinda small. A 3x3 or larger circle shaped sticker would be perfect but my band cannot afford giveaways @ $1+ per sticker (jeez, who's can?). I found a couple places that I can get 1000 pieces ...

Re: Taking a specific vocal sound to live settings

that sounds reasonable to me. If you can simplify the setup (for yourself and sound person) so that it's a DI/line out, I don't see that as any different than any other instrument on the stage.

Re: Oddball Compressor ... Executone M270

transilytic is actually what I meant--much more prone to failure (in my experience) than standard electrolytics. gotcha. Transi-Lytic was Sprague's trademarked name (but still an electrolytic cap - so could technically be replaced with a modern electrolytic and function correctly. the sound is anot...

Re: Oddball Compressor ... Executone M270

The bigger caps look like transilytics Electrolytic.. but yes, they don't usually last more than 10-20 years - or at least are prone to fail after that long. They may "open" - then they are not doing their job - or they may short -- make sure you have a fuse on the power supply - or something in be...

Re: Your favorite general use eq plugin

I use the Waves Renaissance EQ for a lot of general stuff like hi-pass. next probably the Waves SSL EQ or E/G channel strips. Or I might use a Waves API, Waves Scheps 73, UAD Pultec or UAD Neve 31102 for something with more character. I have several other EQs that came with various plugin bundles an...

Re: reference listening

I would use my phone like a USB connected thumb drive before I'd play through the Aux connector (then you are adding that D2A converter, and the A2D of whatever you plugged into - into the sound). I'm pretty sure the Aux/headphone jack on my phone probably sucks.

Re: Waddaya's workin' on this Forf weekend?

tracked some drums Saturday for a new song one of my band's is working on. then got some new ideas (as I was sleeping it seems...) and re-tracked it again today (to a scratch track). I think it's gonna work. and at some point over the holiday weekend, overdubbed tambourine on another track, modded s...

Re: Basic home setup advice

I'll just add that I have a UA Apollo 16 interface and by no means does that mean that I use UAD plugins exclusively. Yeah, I use a few when it's the right tool but I use a lot of native plugins in combination... so much that I've never run out of DSP. It's a great sounding interface, but it does no...

Re: gadgetlabs wavepro drivers for Windows 10???

if you haven't tried already, you might try uninstalling and reinstalling again. when you do the uninstall, choose the option to delete the drivers. then repeat the install process jumping through all hoops including that setting so windows doesn't "upgrade" your drivers? of course, just know that n...
