Re: mastering for cassette

Yep you can make copies louder with less bass content. Its a trade off.

Re: Alternatives to DAWs?

I use and RME Fireface UFX as my interface and I love the setup. I have some decent plug ins and have always been able to do what I needed with thi...

Re: I'm Doing All My Own Backing Vocals

How can I make it sound less like me singing along with myself using only analogue techniques? Yep, done this many times. Just mimic various singers on the different tracks . . most of us singers have a few favorites that we can mimic. And it's fun too. HELL YESS! Gotta do the dance/moves,as well. ...

Re: Lost in the wilds of lo/mid-fi -- your thoughts please.

I hesitate to post this here because (a) I'm a little embarrassed that I need to ask after all this time and (b) I'm not even 100% what I should ask, but: I've been making my little home recordings on and off for years now, at this point my old band is kaput & I'm just making music for fun, which i...

Re: Overdrive pedals educate me

I'm somewhat pedal ignorant. I bought a Danelecro distortion at the pawn shop, and have a couple of phasers and that's it. I was cutting some accent rhythm guitar last week using my Vox AC15. To get it to break up with an ASAT special I had it CRANKED. I had it in iso because it would have killed t...

Re: Does anyone mic the hat and if so why?

Obviously people do. And I'm not very experienced at recording drums, so I'll say that up front. But I have always gotten enough hat via the overheads, and found it hard to keep the snare from bleeding into the hat mic, so I stopped mic-ing the hat. Any similar/different experiences or advice? I am...

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

Also you can throw a 57 on the snare and crank it up in the mix. And stick several pieces of tape on the cymbals.

Re: Complete list of Cassette Multi-Track Recorders and Portastudios

i believe the last model made was the tascam 414mkIII. they were still being sold in the Aughts. My guess is that the Tascam MF-P01 was the last one released; it was announced in January 2002. The date on the service manual for the 424mkIII was May 1999. yes but they were still selling 414 and 424 ...

Re: Setup advice for Tascam M35 and 38 tape machine?

Hook-up lines from recorders outputs to the board ...and use mic, line, tape-in select switch to control signal flows. The manuals should explain it, I'd study them thoroughly.
