4030 omni, one take

Thank you for your comment. It's been a long road to get to this point. We made the recording in one take, in the room I built above my garage at home. Both channels, the 4050 and the DI-ed bass, were left untouched. All I did to them was set the levels. On the output channel I used Silver Comp and ...

4050 First Use

So I finally recorded that little string band, in one take, on one mic... the 4050. Bass was DI, but is still present on the mic. Please for give the peccadilloes.

vinyl

Yes, that's what I meant. I'll be getting a copy. What an amazing album. Way to go! How long did it take you and the Black Keys to lay the tracks down before everyone arrived? The best part of it for me was seeing how excited everyone was when they first heard the tracks. That must have felt really ...

Great story!

Amazing story! Thanks so much for taking the time to write it down.

Eric's is still there... Eric himself is still here too. I couldn't imagine a better place to be... most days. We love it here and singing high notes is actually easier at altitude for some reason.

How the audiophiles see us...

This is a great thread. Our lead guitarist tends towards the audiophile side and has an uncle he describes like this: "cuz marty is not just an audiophile or music buff, he's been a paid consultant to a number of manufacturers and a researcher himself." When I was building the garage studio, he aske...

4050 etc.

So, I settled on the 4050 and I've been using it, and I love it. It's a great mic. Thanks so much. Yes, one thing I've learned is that too small a room with so many instruments, doesn't work as well as a larger one with a high ceiling. I'm familiar with the Trinity Sessions and it was recorded in a ...

Any opinions on "swept sine" vs. pink noise for analyzing a room?
