This graphic needs to be a poster we can all purchase and hang in our studios YESTERDAY.

Also, shut up and take my money.

I use burlap, but pre-wrap the 703 with a thin layer of weedblocking cloth to prevent fiberglass shed.

Live dub mixer here. These are a few of my favorite pro tips for live dub: Send a quick snare shot to the spring verb, then quickly hand-gate the verb send up and down for a tremolo dub snare effect. Flash the vocal fader up and down real into a long delay patch for a stuttered vocal dub trip out. S...

if you have say a desk with 24 channels but only 4 outputs/busses, what's the point of having all those channels? 20 channels for overdubs? Seems a little bit much to stick that many channels on a board and not have as many outputs. This is one of those questions that could be answered by actually ...

Well, sorry for the mild snark, I guess, but I genuinely had NO IDEA what you meant by "fake performance" in the context of a single woodblock hit sample. If you had been talking about loops or something it would have made sense. But frankly in the context you were asking about (single hits for a cl...

Dude, a sample of a guy hitting a woodblock is in no way a "fake performance". That's all any of us would be sending you anyway. Sheesh.

He sends me an email tuesday, which I don't answer. Wednesday, another email. I still don't answer. Then he writes me on friday and starts getting rude. "Not a good way to do business". (I do agree that it isn't good to not answer emails for a few days, but coming from an 18 year old rubs me the wr...

This is a long shot, but those Radial X-Amp boxes come with (and require) a power source. Not phantom power, but a wall wart that comes with the X-Amp when purchased. I didn't see you mention that, I assume you have it plugged in, but hey it never hurts to ask.

Replies: 8

If it's happening at the same place each time, look for an audio region that starts there and try to consolidate that track. Sometimes picking up a new region will trip up DAE if it's not buffered right.

Also, have you bumped up the buffer? Often a hiccup at 128samples will be fine at 256.

Re: Client wants...

It was precisely a Work for Hire agreement that I wanted, and that she would not sign. While I'm not a graphic designer, I'm not sure how she'll ever use those files again. I on the other hand, could actually get some use out of them. I'd want the work for hire agreement, too, I like to mess around...

Re: Client wants...

When I tried to apply this logic with my graphic designer for our last record, she would not budge. The individual work files constituted her proprietary intellectual property, yadda-yadda-yadda She was right to do so. Graphic design work files are not analagous to stems or recorded tracks, unless ...

Yeah, I'm going to need a citation for the "bounces sound different" claim. AFAIK this has been proven to be nothing more than confirmation bias and/or shenanigans.

Just bounce it.

Although mix bus recording can be useful if you want to make a quick move on the fly, etc.

Don is a smoking guitar player and according to Walsh, every bit his equal at least.
All due respect to Don, too, of course, but the Eagles' music did nothing for me until Joe showed up. Something about that guy's playing is just plain electrifying.
