Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

Listen to the difference between nylon tips and wood sticks sometime. That's drastic. Tip shape can make a big difference too - round vs oval vs acorn etc. And a stick with a longer shoulder/taper will have a different sound and feel. For the last few years I've been sanding the shoulder down on 5a...

Re: Need Help With DIY Diffuser Design...

Looks like you're contemplating something similar to a quadratic residue diffuser. Searching that may find you some useful info. It's a rabbit hole, have fun.

Though it would likely be a shame to do so, that Viola Audio looks like a prime candidate for some truly amazing bending hackery.

YouTube obviously knows I've been reading this thread, as several Guthrie Govan have popped up in the last few days.

Re: Downsizing advice

I've got gear overload. Either need a larger space or a serious gear reduction. Right now I have a spare bedroom that is practically un-navigable due to, well, hoarding.
But I too hate the selling process.

Seems like everything was easier when I had the br8 and a 57.

Re: Best Monitors for the Room

If I were you: I would focus on fixing what DOES NOT work currently with what you have. Spend time listening to your room with the monitors you own now. Measure and map out your nodes and peaks. Learn a bit of Acoustics. Measure all this at 82dB at your listening position. Pink and white noise. The...

When there's drums in the bass mic

I've been archiving old cassettes, and came across a tune from last century. It's just drums and bass, recorded live with two dynamics. Lofi crunchy. I've fleshed out an arrangement, but now the mix is killing me The main problem is the bass mic: it's sort of a cleanish grind pop punk sound, (that b...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

it's kind of funny that everyone lists the compromises they are willing to tolerate. Every playback media seems to have them... :( True. I prefer the sound of live music but it's such a damned nuisance having to kick the band off the couch so I can drag it out of the way enough to unfold the bandst...

RE: the vinyl comeback What is the ratio of people that actually listen to their new vinyl on a regular basis vs just use the download code? I've never used a single download code from a vinyl purchase. Since losing my entire collection roughly a decade ago, I'm back up to 300ish titles. I typicall...
