Re: drum samples in heavy music: When did it begin????

I was definitely hearing about drum sample replacement as a standard in the late 80's at some studios around here. Grab a bunch of samples of freshly headed drums, and put them into rotation in a bank of hardware samplers.

Re: Places for one off vinyl

One-off's were always cut acetates in the old days, I don't know that anyone is doing anything different now. If I'm not mistaken, play life is very low compared to pressed vinyl, as in diminishing quality with each spin.

Yep, de-esser or dynamic eq can be the ticket.

Re: No fancy tube mics - am I missing out?

Again what Larry said. My first gonna be a 'great vocal LDC' was a Gefell UMT70S, which I got in the midst of a screamer metal record. Totally the wrong mic for the job, very disappointing learning experience. The ubiquitous SM7 thing; seems to me they work a higher % of the time with the average un...

Re: Unbalanced Polarity Flip

Yes, a transformer will do this. How would I wire it? Would I effectively be lifting the ground? I'm guessing feed the signal in one side of the primary, and ground the other, and then on the opposing side take the signal of the opposing end of the secondary and use the other end of the secondary a...

Re: Recording Live Comedy

I've only done one, and the take-away was MORE AUDIENCE MICS! I had a pair, and it wasn't enough to create a full sounding audience.

Re: Tape Storage Question - In the supplied plastic bag or no?

The bag prevents it from breathing as well, and traps humidity. It ships in the sealed bag to keep humidity out, but once it's open it simply traps it.

Re: Let's discuss spatial/immersive/ambisonic audio

I have zero call for anything more than stereo, but have been using dual mid-side and native B-format arrays (horizontal-only surround possibilities) for pattern steerage in post. Even within stereo, it adds a lot of options and the files are there for any future surround use. It would be nice if th...
