Re: Bass Plugins

Watching a compressor meter while tracking has helped me develop my touch on bass - lets me know when I'm digging in too much or not enough.

Re: dbx 160x acting strange

Just checked, my pair of 163x take a 5/64" allen wrench. I like the longer handled type wrenches, such as made by Stanley, as they provide more leverage.
My 166 (original, no letter suffix) shows full gain reduction unless the gate threshold is turned down. Just a thought.

Re: electrovoice 635A

Not too long ago I believe someone on here mentioned putting it on the floor on the snare side of the kick, sort of an alternative to the crotch thing. Tried it there a couple times and liked it. I use it a lot on my nylon acoustic, which is usually meant to stay tucked away inside the rhythm sectio...

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

Had that same guitar except it was a Leban Cyclone. Slightly different pickup.
Miss that thing.

Re: Reaper crossfades won't work

Alt+X must be it. I use Alt+Z (cut at previous zero crossing) quite a bit, must have toggled it by accident. Thanks! Was having an awful time getting some of the tight fades to sound right - tweak length, tweak overlap, tweak fade, listen and hear glitchiness where the fades didn't perfectly line up...

Reaper crossfades won't work

I've been doing edits in Reaper for years by just lining up two clips where I want them and then dragging the top and tail until they overlap each other. Reaper has always automatically put a crossfade on the overlap, and I can usually eyeball it and get where I want to be fairly quickly. But today ...

The Brothers Nylon

These guys rock. Watching their videos can feel like a "greatest hits of TOMB circa '06-'08", in the best possible way. Find them on YT or BC.

Re: Archives

I too love Tapeop. "Maintained your account" is the killer for me. In late 1999 I went to "ask jeeves" on my then gf's mom's computer and stumbled across a great mag I've been reading ever since. But there have been many, many physical and digital address changes in that time. I still have ~ 90% of ...

Re: Tascam 388 Muddy Recording

Also, it's not just the heads, but everything metal in the tape path - guides, capstan - that needs cleaned. Hospital type swabs work better than standard issue q-tips. Also, can anything go wrong with tape that would effect only the recording onto it but not the playback of already-existing tracks?...

Re: Oddball Compressor ... Executone M270

Looks like germanium transistors, so probably pnp and you might want to be sure which way to hook up the p.s.

Re: MT44D Trouble

Not sure how mechanically similar it is to the Yamaha MT8X. When you say transport controls completely stop, you mean none of the controls cause any behavior whatsoever? Or does the deck "try" to carry out the transport command and "give up"? Does the capstan motor continue to spin once the problem ...

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

Also, I notice when I do a 2-track mix down via audio cable (RCA to 3.5mm headphone cable) I can get SUPER loud levels without any digital clipping. But I guess this is because I'm transferring an analog audio signal and not a digital one, right? You're talking about sending your mix to the mic inp...
