Re: Let's talk guitar amp recording

If you are, I am also Satan...I haven't mic'd an amp in years. For me the workflow is just a million times easier with amp sims. I can sit in the sweet spot and adjust the tone in context, no headphones, no killing my ears. If you'd have told me this 10 years ago I'd have said you were crazy, but he...

You got the Scott part right, but it was Scott Litt.

I'm not too into the sound on "Nevermind" but I love Andy Wallace's work on SY's "Dirty", sounds great and more importantly, it's really FUN to listen to.

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

I'm 99.9999% sure there's no samples on MoP, and to me, that's one of the last metal records where the drums sound like more or less normal drums. I don't think there's any samples on AJFA either, but you don't need samples when the drums are that stupidly loud in the mix and there's no bass. I'm pr...

basically what he's saying is metallica records post-1986 don't sound good. :D

Should he go back to Windows 7 on the new machine to get better driver support?
I prefer 7 to 10 by a wide margin, but 7 is 'old' and if he's already got 10 on the machine, just keep that. Driver support shouldn't be an issue, everything should work with 10.

Sorry, I should've been more specific. PCI is the outdated tech, not PCI-e.

Re: Need Advice: How to Modernize Layla 24/96s?

-Keep the outboard Layla 24/96s and find a new professional quality PCIe x1 card or cards that can take 16 channels in and make them individually available to a DAW, and has driver support in Windows 10, and would work as smoothly as the old Layla's did. Does this card exist? Would we be able to ex...

Thanks Geoff! Yeah it's going to be an anxiety-ridden winter for me, but we've had a bunch of heavy rain storms this past month and everything's been 100%, so far so good.

100%. I'd say narrow cuts to 1 or 2 frequencies is a guarantee on every mix I do, for this exact reason. I do the same thing with overheads, though a little more heavy handedly.
Curious what freqs on overheads? Usually when I feel like cymbals/hats are annoying it's always around 11-12k.

Re: De-harshing distorted guitars

Just listened to the Jack Endino interview on the tape op podcast and he recommended this exact thing as part of his guitar sound - making it less harsh means it can be turned up louder in the mix and not hurt. Shelly Yakus said a similar thing in his interview in the mag ages ago, although he was ...

Re: Plug in for Leslie effect...

Maybe tie a mic to my puppies tail and have him run around in circles? that would work. years ago i was recording a band, we had a close mic on the amp, i gave the guitarist's bandmate a 57 and said "just do some ridiculous interpretive dance and wave that around while he plays". that mic combined ...

Re: De-harshing distorted guitars

it's a tough one for sure. i normally don't like narrow eq for almost anything, but sometimes with distorted guitars, a tight notch at the problem area can help. or two, you might have the ear splitting harshies around 2.5-3.2 and the fizzy shit around 5-6 that both need to be dealt with. notch the ...

Re: Secret Chords

knowing theory makes it easier to talk shorthand.

having been in bands where i was the only one who knew theory, there were plenty of times i was quietly chuckling to myself as my bandmates would be having some elaborate argument/discussion about some rudimentary thing...
