Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear, enlightenment, and yer mom, man

All i know is that it's a great time to be alive and be a guitar player. Everything else....not so much! I'd expect your red one to have more....something...than the new one, be interesting to see what you think of them in another 10 years, once the dk has matured a bit. I was going on and on to ms...

Re: limiting busses in rock music - digital

I pretty much never do it. The few times I've tried it I didn't like the results. Veeeeeeery occasionally it's useful if say, the drummer's kick is just all over the place dynamically.

But in general, nah.

Re: amber DK24. In your research you may have come across Cameron Cooper's channel. Yeah, I was feeling good about my shredding progress until I watched a few of his videos. Kid rips. If you'd have told me in 1991 that 30 years later there'd be teenage shredders who love Charvels... The top on thos...

Re: Tape Plugins

u-he satin. Couldn't live without it. I don't really consider Spectre a 'tape' plugin, but it's certainly very cool and useful.

Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear, enlightenment, and yer mom, man

Thanks boss! I'm a little dubious about the pickups, because....active? But they're certainly super flexible, which is nice, and I watched one vid where the dude played a bunch of jazzy/country stuff, i.e. not tons of distortion, and they sounded good, so I'm sure they'll be fine. The output jack on...

Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear, enlightenment, and yer mom, man

Nice shed! Both of those look awesome. You apparently have the only Amber DK24 in existence, you can't find those things anywhere. i just bought one of these yesterday, should be here Friday. AND my friend in Chicago is sending me his old Charvel as well, has some goofball headstock like this: https...

Re: Starting a small studio business

Avoid debt. Pay cash. As much as possible. Forget fancy gear for now. Make your rooms sound really good. Make the live room a place people feel really comfortable in. Make the control room as accurate as you possibly can (spend your money on room treatment, not compressors). A really good month does...

Re: Differences in monitoring: mix rooms vs mastering suites

Yeah try putting the speakers on stands right up against the wall. I can almost guarantee that will help.

Congrats on the baby!

Re: Differences in monitoring: mix rooms vs mastering suites

There's lots you can do. To start with, where are your monitors? You're probably going to get the best results with them as close to the front wall as you can get them. I mean like an inch.

Do you have any treatment in there now?

Re: Differences in monitoring: mix rooms vs mastering suites

Why are mastering studios so wildly all over the map, while tracking & mixing spaces seem to confirm to a narrower collection of monitoring rigs? We're not really THAT much all over the map, there's maybe a half dozen common mastering speakers...ATC, PMC, kii, B+W, Dunlavy, Tyler...those seem to be...

Re: How loud do you listen?

Short day mastering today so I got started mixing a friend's song...after an hour or so I had a basic mix dialed in, checked the level and it was ranging between 70-75, so call it 72. That seems like a good default level for mixing. I know our ears are flattest around 83-85 but that's just too loud ...

Do you use a sine wave to set your SPL or program material?
If you were asking me, program material. I set my mastering volume level about 14 years ago and it hasn't changed since.

Re: How loud do you listen?

For mastering, ~82db spl. I have a fixed spot ("27", the age rock stars die) on my monitoring D/A, all decisions are made at that one level. It's loud but it's comfortable. If anything hurts at that level I know I need to fix it. For casual listening, I usually have the D/A at "10" and it's in 1db s...
