I really don't think this sounds like this, but wasn't there some Los Lobos album that came out like, a zillion years ago, and everyone was like, "whoah! The guitars sound awesome on this! How'd you do it?" And LL was like, "actually, what we did was plug the guitars directly into the Hi-Z ins of a ...

I've used a B1 on drums, never closemic'd snare though. I don't really like that mic for that purpose. Its too...I don't know how to describe this but the high-end is like too...poky? high brilliant things, sibilance, strainers, cymbals, i don't like how they sound on that mic, at least plain, maybe...

I would love to look stupid here, and will gladly take back all of the nasty things I have said, and wear the egg with pride, but I swear on my momma's eyes that I (and others) have zoomed in as far as we could go, and were not able to get to the sample level. The reason I think this is that When I...

Varispeed! Is that going to work for Beatles style varispeed? in the demo vid, they show a popout menu that lets you do pitch-only, time-only, or pitch&time, and they slow the track (time only) and record a part, then speed it back up, but one would assume in pitch&time mode it would work beatles-s...

Damn, I also really like the "Create New Sampler Track" feature. I have wasted so much of my life cutting something up with the / key or the marquee-select->set-locators->copy-paste->set-tempo-by-region-length-and-locators->opt-click and then opening up esx and setting up a map for all this little r...

flex time and improved editing look like enough reason to pay the 200 for this. at least for me. I don't know how long to wait to see if its a buggy piece of crap though.

Also, I just got off the phone with the mac store. They won't have it in stock till Sat.

Buying a Zoom H2/H4N in NYC

I need to get a portable digital recorder ASAP, like tomorrow. From what I hear, those Zoom Hn's are the shit. BUT, it looks like GC and my nearest music stores don't carry them. Is there any place in NYC that does? I would order it, but I really need something tomorrow. Should I just screw it and b...

I'd recommend the MXR Micro-Amp, the EH LPB, or the BBE Boosta Grande. These will not change the tone of the amp, but will hit the input harder...much, much harder. Yeah, I agree with this and forgot about this the first time I posted. The MXR Micro-Amp + Twin is a great combo for adding some gentl...

analogman tubescreamers are good for this. have you considered selling the amp and getting a smaller one with a similar topology though, like a princeton reissue or a champ clone? If you like the sound of the tubes being overdriven, the easiest thing to do might be to get an amp that lets you run th...

I think on this board people get too upitty about doing this by the book. I mean, if you did a btb glynn johns technique and moved the over the shoulder mic by half a kick drum wavecycle from the FOK mic, it will collapse to mono like ass. Mad bass suck. Know'm sayin?

I love the way the vocs are recorded on the regina spektor record begin to hope are recorded. A lot of the other production i think is kind of weak, but its hard to separate from the arrangements, but apart from the music (which i love) i think her vocs would be really hard to record: super dynamic,...

Have you considered messing around with compressors to achieve this affect? Like is it really air you are missing or the breathiness of the whispered vocal? If its the latter, use the mics you got, then set the comp to be fast and crush up the transient, but then pull up on the finish of the syllabl...
