Teac 2A mods

The latest in my series entitled, "let's put some polish on that turd!" This is a funky little barebones mixer meant for use with the 3440. Six channels, four busses, and not much else. But it looks cool, and... well, it looks cool. That's enough. Reworking the channel Each channel has an unbalanced...

Re: Mixing Doubled Vocals

It's been a while since I read about the ADT thing, but I believe one machine was running at double speed of the other, and by coincidence the distance from record to playback heads was double as well - which was the original inspiration for developing the technique. So for instance, 30 ips machine ...

Re: Places for one off vinyl

One-off's were always cut acetates in the old days, I don't know that anyone is doing anything different now. If I'm not mistaken, play life is very low compared to pressed vinyl, as in diminishing quality with each spin. I don't think they have a very good shelf life either, as the lacquer can def...

Then again, if it ain’t broke...what’s the rush to move on to a new system at all?
I'd run that thing into the ground.

Re: Condenser Mic Innards???

I would tend to agree with the above. A condenser capsule is connected to an input in the GigaOhm type range. Subbing in a speaker in the ones to tens of ohms range seems problematic. A transformer with say an 8ohm to 200ohm ratio might work better. Maybe one from a ribbon mic?

I recorded this one a few years ago....

it is of the "noise genre" so rather than describe that, just listen for a minute and you will get the picture.
Good stuff.

Re: Topicality - "The Situation"

Oh wow, now I'm really confused. Does it count as copping if you can't even remember from where you were unaware you'd copped it?

Re: Best Possible Vocal Recording

I read a post somewhere recently which argued the "best first good" mic for a home studio vocalist is not a condenser, but an re20. One of the key points was that the re20's reduced proximity response and lower sensitivity let it work better in a less than acoustically ideal room. Which is not me sa...

Re: Tascam 388 Transport Button Wont Play/Silent Motor

Took out those PCB boards and realized that I bent one of the pins that the board sits on by inserting the board the wrong way. Also realized that my transport board was not the last board to go in but it goes in right after the power supply board. This is the first stuff I would try to troubleshoo...

Re: Topicality - "The Situation"

There's a local guy who's a bit off, named Tommy, who tends to repeat himself. Very loudly, followed by a whisper ( a whisper ). So naturally, he became known as Tommy Two-times. I, being unaware of the reference for whatever reason (I'd seen Goodfellas, apparently that bit didn't stick), eventually...

Re: Patchbay Question - Where to connect ground wire?

I suspect a ground loop issue. Sounds like the patchbay is probably intended to be used as the star ground point for all shields of all balanced signals it carries. A shield only has to be connected to ground at one point to do its job. Connecting at multiple points can introduce these problems. You...
