don't be surprised if nothing works, the whole thing is chaos, and the musicians are mad at you. you might be spending 2 hours getting a perfect drum sound and be happy, or you might be spending 2 hours figuring out why track 1 won't record.

if you had a time machine you could also try wacky willies either at their NW or SE location. of course, if you go all the way back to the SE location time, you could just go to radio shack...

exchange rate is not so great for this these days, but you can get a 441 from ebay.de for $300 USD or so.

I always wind up supporting the Stedman N90 in these "alternate dynamic" mic threads. Lots of meat to that mic, and a very tame high end. Almost (dare I say it) ribbon-like. its an interesting mic for sure. very loose pattern. lil honky, so i almost never used it on vocals. but i really liked it as...

I've been on both sides of this. And, in my experience, the desire to believe that a piece of gear that I could not possibly afford was unnecessary, had a much bigger impact on my uninformed opinion than the potential hassle of having to return something that didn't blow me away. see yea, for me i'...

hurm, something else that seems to be poorly understood in this thread is that the emphasis is on MODERN converters.

i am very sure that everyone's 90's digi gear in fact sucked. and when they upgraded to something manufactured 7 years later, they heard a decent improvement.

i think the design concept is to give some inertia to the transducer. keeps the quieter stuff out of the mic, allows you compress the kick without the fucking high hat coming through just as loud.

Just out of curiosity, who are you quoting in your post above? that is quoting a SOS review, posted on burl audio's website that was quoting their own press release. so the product is both designed AND marketed as a color box when pushed. i think your point about recording for Telarc's classical di...

just to clarify, burl audio gear is designed for non linearities: . A stepped knob attenuates the analogue input signal by between -12dB and -24dB, allowing the user to, in Burl?s words, ?hit the front end hotter or colder depending on what the material calls for?. Intriguingly, Burl even say that t...

it puts perspective on the relative importance of converters in the audio chain.

i see a converter upgrade as something on par with like, upgrading transformers, upgrading cable. makes a measurable difference but for most people, its probably not important.
