Re: Mixing with the band there

Been thinking about this a lot lately... I think I do my best work when the artist isn't here (and generally that's how most mixing happens now). the other day the artist was here and i was so focussed on attending to his thoughts about the song that I wasn't really listening like I would if he were...

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

I bought a Soyuz SU-013 Fet SDC a few months ago and LOVED IT. So I bought a second and have been trying them on everything... piano, acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, percussion, drum OH and rooms (and snare with the pad)... even did some pretty great sounding vocals on em. The only thing they aren...

Re: Death by Audio “Echo Master” vs Voco-Loco as vocal chain ?

It always has surprised me that most bands or artists don't take 2 minute to talk with the sound guy and give him a heads up on their vibe and what they would like prominent or what fx they like/hate.... and then they are disappointed with the results... these sound guys are not psychics...

Re: 500 series racks - how much power do I need?

The radial ones are great and have lots of power and some nice extra features like easy daisy chaining of adjacent channels.

Plus I used the D-sub in when mixing as well.

Re: Pre-Amps Rec's for Instruments and Mics?

Hard to know what you consider "reasonably priced" but for warm I love the UA solo 610 - a GREAT DI for bass, guitars, keys and a very rich and velvety pre for mics. I use this a lot on vocals too. Can be found used for $500 - $600 used. BTW power supply for Golden Age is cheap: https://www.bhphotov...

help troubleshoot a buzzzzz on Beyer M160

My beyer M160 was making a slight buzz - also when you touch the mic a ground hum happens - a much louder buzz. I thought maybe it was the mic pre but I swapped it and it was still there so i tried a cloudlifter and it just amplified the noise. I also swapped the xlr. Nothing helped. Tried I a diffe...

machine room...

hearing the faint hum of my computer and radar's fans and hardrives is slowly driving me insane. I don't know why I didn't factor in a machine room for this new studio when we built it 5 years ago but I gotta do something and no it's not gonna be enough to replace a few components in my tower... it'...

Re: Reverb for Drums (Analog Tascam 388)

I still get some good mileage out of an Alesia wedge. Can be had for under $100 and I think the sounds rival a lot of good plugins. Nice plate and room sounds.
