seventh circle pre's

Hello - i have a pair of N72's in the original chasis - it is pretty old, maybe around 2002 or so, so everything is "version 1". It was assembled and tested by Tim Ryan himself, so the build is flawless, and still works perfectly.

interested? offer?

I'm glad it worked out for you. I feel like you should have done behind the kneewalls too while you were at it, but anything helps. Since heat rises, your attic will probably be the toastiest room in the house, if the foam is doing its job.

Yes, will do the next time I'm in there.

That there is a vintage beer spill stain. That's worth good money now.

amp stand

Not exactly gear, but DIY. I made a pair of these amp stands for a new room we working on. Materials are a $20 Home Depot moving dolly and 2 2x4's. The whole thing cost under $30 and takes about an hour to make. It is basically one size fits all, up to 26" wide, and has storage for a pedal board und...

Re: do the right thing

So... I've made a change to the plan... we're adding the spray foam to the attic roof. contracting with a local company today ??they should be spraying a couple inches of foam into my attic bays. Thankfully, we hadn't finished the top walls yet... so I ca pull-out the mineral wool / let them spray ...

The Tascam 488mkII is the first, and only, multitrack tape machine I owned, so I don't have point of comparison, and my opinion is also tinted with nostalgia, but I love that machine. You can make is sound really good or really bad (but still good).

Best way to speed up a mix without altering pitch?

I got a song which is already mixed down, but I think I prefer it just a little bit faster than it was recorded. I record in Logic X, so I imported the stereo mixdown into a new logic project, and played around with the varispeed tool. When increasing speed+pitch, it sounds great. But I don't want t...

If it is not too late (and even if it is), I would strongly suggest looking into spray foaming the attic, at least the roof in between the rafters, but also the walls if you can. I live in a similar climate - North Jersey, and got our attic spray foamed, and man is it a difference maker. The thermal...

I have the Avantone CK-40, I love it, use it every session as the room mic, and also as the main piano mic. No noise.

yeah, it refers to the spacing of the studs. 12" on center means the distance between 2 studs is 12", measured from the center of each one.

Well, if you are building from scratch, you have a lot of options. I would get some numbers on density, there are probably materials that have more mass than OSB. For example, for your exterior wall, you could do OSB and then cement board. Or OSB-drywall-OSB sandwich. If you are working with a contr...

Switch between multi-channel out and stereo out frequently

I was wondering if anyone else has run into this issue, and come up with a clever way to deal with it. In my studio, i'm running logic on a macbook pro, out to a 16 channel output interface, which is connected to my mixer. Individual tracks are assigned to ouputs to map to the mixer channels, pretty...
