Learn to love it/live with it?? Of course, maybe you really can beat it since you're not talking about a big space. And it depends on what you're recording too, I guess. If you're doing voiceovers, you gotta fix it. My main problem is chicken trucks, logging trucks and the courthouse clock tower acr...

Whoa - going to the breaker box - that's hardcore!

Yeah, mine was a long one - I feel like I owe the TOMB a counseling fee or something!

My experience was pretty weird. I always showed a pretty significant interest in music (my first memory is pulling out all the pots and pans and spreading out a Fat Albert style drum set on the kitchen floor when I was 3 or 4) and, I guess, some innate technical ability. My elementary school let me ...

Views: 576

If using as a DAW front end, probably pretty cool. Has decent pres and 3-band semi-parametric EQ, and the built in TT bay would be pretty sweet. Plus if it's in the nice heavy desk, you immediately look cooler than, say, me, with my two mixers sitting on a homemade 2x4 table! Do be sure to know how ...

Except for these: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=262-440 , be prepared to gag on the prices! Besides PartsExpress and Par-Metal, there's also Mouser (http://www.mouser.com) and DigiKey (http://www.digikey.com). Or buy some crapped out rack gear on eBay and salvage the ...

I usually don't, but a few times lately I've used an AKG C1000S and got a pretty hellacious (in a good way) hot sizzle.

Well, maybe this will brighten up your day:

I have a Hill Audio 24-ch board I could unload, but it needs work. The eBay idiot I got it from a couple years ago packed it poorly and some knobs are broken. So, I'd let it go pretty cheap if you can do the repair work or have someone who can. I have the board and the power supply. Email me if you'...

Oh, yeah. Master and Everyone is absolutely gorgeous - and mono!

And Marky Nevers says that the stereo mix is even more amazing.

Any suggestions off the top of your head for some "obviously not so compressed" full band rock stuff?

Conference recording

Wasn't really sure where to put this... Does anyone here do audio recording for professional conferences, professional continuing education, etc.? Having been to lots and having spoken at lots, I know that the quality of the recordings done by most of the companies that do this pretty much sucks. I ...

Scrapwood DIY Diffusers

I was surfing around some different DIY audio sites and stumbled across this page on this guy's DIY diffusers:

I'm not looking for diffusors, but it did look pretty cool, and relatively easy if you have access to a bandsaw.

Shadow Hills GAMA mic pre w/ switchable output transformers

http://shadowhillsindustries.com Anyone using any of these Shadow Hills GAMAs? Whatever it sounds like, it sure looks bad-ass. Bakelite knobs! The switchable output transformer idea is cool. $4000 is an assload of money to drop, but thinking of it as $500 per channel, it seems like a bargain - if i...
