On having a backup recorder when recording concerts

Tonight I experienced the virtue of having a backup recorder for recording concerts. I've been recording a local bluegrass band's shows for the past few months without one, but this evening, the spider senses tingled. I just had the feeling that something might possibly go wrong with my computer tha...

FS: Mackie D8B with matching Argosy desk (Springfield, MA)

Hey all, long time lurker, occasional poster. I'm looking to sell my Mackie Digital 8 Bus mixer because it simply doesn't fit what I need for my rig right now. Currently, it is fitted with two of the Apogee digital cards and two of the Opt 8 digital cards, however alternate cards can easily be found...

I feel that this is a user-end issue, as I really do not buy this "when we rock out, all control goes to hell" mentality. Frankly, being able to play with power and conviction at all volume levels is a trait that should be a base expectation of any competent musician out there.

Check out Sonor's midrange stuff. Force 2003, 3003, 2007, 3007's can be had for well within your price range. They sound great and have a pretty rugged build. I myself have a force 3003 and swear by it. Also, it seems to me like even the lower-end Yamaha kits sound wicked good.

Working dirt cheap or for free isn't the answer. Put yourself in situations where people want to work for you. Whether you're dirt cheap or relatively regular priced won't matter. It's not like working for free makes you a no brainer. There are tons of people who would do it for free. If I may turn...

A question from a young engineer in regard to finding work

Back in 2007, I graduated college and moved to a new area. During this time, I have done only a few albums, mainly for friends, but have found it hard to get other clients. I feel that one of my disadvantages is not having a location to record at. After all, why should someone rent studio time with ...

Rappers cupping the mic and intelligablity

I'm aware that this is recording, but perhaps you guys could yield some answers. Recently, I was mixing a hiphop show and of course, almost everyone cupped their mic, boosting the proximity effect. Now, this room is very live to begin with (2-3 seconds,) so with all this mud added in, there was only...

The most I'm willing to spend is the cost of another 4047, so the RE20 (which I presume you're referring to) or a 421 are potential runners.

What mics to get? (Yeah yeah, I know)

Lately I've been trying to think out what mic I want to add to the collection. Currently, the personal locker is as follows: (1)AT40407 (1)MK-219 (2)KSM141 (2)MK-012 (the old ones) (3) SM57 On the one hand, I know my collection is direly lacking in dynamic mics. On the other hand, it would be nice t...

Isn't most of engineering just doing the best you can with what you have to work with?
That's the whole point of my question, isn't it? I'm trying to figure out a way to maximize the potential of what I have.

Making the best of a Mackie for live sound question

Here's the background: I work sound at a venue with two rooms. While the upstairs has a Soundcraft board for FoH, the downstairs has a a Mackie. What kills me is that I only have one parametric on each channel. On sources like vocals, I often have two frequencies I want to play with, so I end up hav...
