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...

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

I'm very used to the analog world where you really want your VU meters just kissing the red to get the best saturation. Am I correct that in the digital world it's almost the opposite, that you want your levels quite low? The best saturation , aka distortion, aka getting as high above the noise flo...

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

A lot obviously depends on your specific set-up. I have an m-audio 1010lt I've used in the past for this sort of thing, which has a "hardware control" dialog window that allows each line input/output to be set as either -10 or +4 = 0dB. Then I can set up a test tone in the DAW and do a round trip le...

Re: The drum "Wurst Mic" technique - Holy shit!

EV 665 or Senn 441 are my faves. How far it peeks over the rim of the kick determines kick/ snare balance, angling left to right balances the toms.

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...

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.
