Re: Tascam 388 effects straight to tape tracks

Re: fader setup for 500 series preamps

I have a Radial six pack workhorse and it has a cool feature which allows you to cascade channels into the modules beside it with the flick of a switch so you can have a pre and to it's right an eq and then a compressor in the next one and run them as a channel strip by flicking a switch in the back...

Re: power conditioner/power bars

were you using any unbalanced TS or RCA cables? or an unbalanced patch bay? that's usually the culprit IMO. Get too close to the computer (which generates a lot of EMI) and it picks up noise. No - I don't have a patch bay and everything is hard wired with XLR or DB25. My computer is about 8 - 10 fe...

Re: power conditioner/power bars

I'm using a big ol 30lb isolation transformer and called an electrician to make sure the power is run properly from the mains
Could you send a link to something like what you are describing? Also where does the transformer get installed?

Don't they just use a battery when the power gets cut abruptly?
That was my assumption as well. The battery is the backup source no?

power conditioner/power bars

I was fighting some high end freq last week when I was printing some mixes through outboard gear - it' was a constant high freq tone (2k ish) that was being emitted - not super audible except on quiet parts and intros/outros but annoying enough that I went and bought a $100 ART power bar that claims...

Re: how would you record a six piece doo wop group?

Sounds like a really fun project - but I'm not sure a 512 is really from that era you are describing and might be a little too aggressive/hard souding for the smoother vintage vocal tones. I'd go with a UA 610 or something a little "softer" that will not push the upper mids as much - especially with...

Re: recording live to Otari 50/50 2 track

Thanks for the input guys. We tried this a few weeks ago and I opted to use external pres and make a mix on the board which I printed live to the tape - sounded really great! on a side note - I'm listening to some Alan Lomax recordings today of Mississippi Fred McDowell and noticing that they kind o...

SONY reel to reel

I won an auction for an old Sony TC399 - my thought was if I could get it cheap it might be fun for messing around with - effecting stuff by running tracks through it - maybe drum submixes etc. I got it for $45 with a pile of tapes. No takeup reel was included so I am trying to just use one of the s...

Re: "smash channel" options, for drums... sans console?

that MIGHT work... I have the Radial 6 pack workhorse and there's a weird impedance thing that happens when you have the XLR and DB25 simultaneously connected, it doesn't work and gain is all messed up. I actually called them about it and verified that it is not designed to do both at the same time....

Re: "smash channel" options, for drums... sans console?

So many ways to getting your crunch on. I almost always have a dedicated channel or 2 for sonic weirdness. Standard audio level-or rules for crushing drums. I have a 441 poking over the kick pointing at bottom of snare through whatever pre -> level or for mass destruction. Or a ribbon or LDC in the ...
