Re: pan your drums out of the center

I love the Zach Barocas story. One more vote for drummer's perspective because in order to hear individual drums "panned" in real life, you have to be reeeeeally close to the kit. If you're out in the crowd at a show, you're not going to hear the hi hat off to your right and the ride way of to your ...

Re: Fanless Pure Power Amp Recommendations?

I have the Hypex Ncore amps (class D) here, can't say enough good things about them, they're incredible. This sounds very interesting! What model/config do you have? Did you buy direct? Mind sharing how much your rig cost? I've got some nice woofers and horns, sounds like these might make for a goo...

I highly recommend REAPER

Rather than completely hijack Larry's thread, I just thought I'd put my 2 cents into this one, and say that I switched to REAPER about 10 years ago and every single time I fire it up I'm glad I did. The software is great. When I was still on the learning curve of transferring from Cubase/Nuendo and ...

Re: Speaker re-coning recommendations?

I don't get it, I'm embarrassed to say. Actually, it's four. It was a monstrous setup. When I bought the place it came with soffit-mounted monitors that had two 15s and a big wooden horn on each side. Sounded great, but not for critical listening. Too flattering! When we renovated, I shrunk the cont...

Speaker re-coning recommendations?

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a good resource for reconing studio monitor drivers? I have some TAD TL-1601 drivers that might need it. I sent an email to TAD, but thought I'd check with the fine folks here too.

Re: Pro Tools HDX not Bouncing all Tracks to Disk!

How long has Pro Tools' bounce function been sketchy? It seems insane that Avid would officially recommend not using such a basic function. Pardon my ignorance; I am a Reaper user, Nuendo/Cubase before that, Logic before that, Nuendo/Cubase before that. Not to get too proselytize-ey Larry, but Reape...

Re: small mixers for tracking headphones?

I also got fed up with the furman, and now I use a bunch of Mackie 402 VLZ3s. https://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/mackie-402-vlz3-compact-audio-mixer and korg nanokontrol (mkI) I feed each one a stereo mix from a REAPER folder track, which the musicians can control with the nanokontrol.

Re: UA Luna

It is crazy that PT makes it so hard to invert polarity. Just plain crazy. Which got me thinking that this might be a genius move on UA's part, since PT has set the bar soooo low for DAWs that a sizable number of UA users who currently use protools will try it out, be pleasantly surprised, and sudde...

Re: UA Luna

If I were a Logic user (I was for about half of 2009) or a PT user, and if I were using Macs, I miiiiiight check it out, but I'm so happy with REAPER that I have no interest in another DAW. One of the main reasons I even started fooling around with REAPER in the first place was because I wanted to r...

Re: UA Luna

I haven't seen any mention yet of any features that differentiate it from other DAWs other than the tape emulation and Neve summing, which unless there's something I'm missing, can be done "a la carte" with plugins. Add to that the fact that you have to use UAD hardware, and it's Mac only, sounds ve...

Re: connecting turntable to console

I forgot to mention that you could find a receiver for cheap on craigslist or at goodwill and use it as a dedicated phono preamp by connecting the ghost to the tape outs.

Re: connecting turntable to console

+1 to what drumsound said. It'll sound super thin without a phono preamp because of the RIAA curve https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RIAA_equalization . I have an Audio Technica AT-PEQ3 (or maybe a previous generation of the same basic preamp) in my workshop that sounds good, not that I've scrutinized i...
