Sorry, I sold my M-56-8 a few years back. Awesome machine. These days I get the job done with an Otari 1/2" 8-track. You might want to check with Chris Mara about an MCI and with Matt Allen about a 3M. M-79s are excellent, too.

I'm selling an AKG D-19 dynamic mike. The mike is in good working order. This particular model carries the Norelco brand and also has a badge indicating that it was used by CBS at one time. ?It has a standard XLR output connector and both the M (music) and S (speech) settings work. ?I'm asking $300 ...

Too bad you are far away. I'm about to the point that I could stand the thought of a 2" M-79 transport here.

Cheers,

You might want to check with the folks at GRS Pro Audio. They're about a 4 hour drive away from you and they refurb and sell M-79 machines.

Don't wait until it's mix time to begin dealing with this. Using the small speaker(s) along with your mains during tracking will let you know if you're capturing the information that will allow the instrument to speak well over both systems. Manage that well and you'll find you don't have to work a...

Personally, I wouldn't even give an MX-5050 machine for today's "digital realm." Much less an M-23.

It seems to me it's just widely accepted that mastering is going to dampen the excitement of, and blur the edges of, an otherwise fantastic mix. Surely that's not the result in every case, but why does it seem to be so widely accepted? ...or maybe I'm mistaken. No, it's the tyranny of digital audio...

I feel like I should stress that I am looking for advice on purchasing one great mic, or a pair of good mics for use on most overdubs including my go-to vocal mic. I'm not sure ribbons have a place in this thread. Ribbons are relevant, IMO. If I had $2500 to spend, I'd be looking at the R44CE, no d...

Don't overlook the M130. It's the figure-8 companion to the M160. It's even flatter thru the midrange than the M160 and obviously has the attributes of a small, fairly symmetrical, bidirectional ribbon. Off-axis response is superb, and better than most other ribbons in terms of vertical off-axis res...
