Thanks all, I know it can be hard to tell, I just thought someone might recognise it straight off.

Best thing is to probably just ask John straight up...

Help with live sound in a tiny room

So I put on shows at my house sometimes, and last time it was mostly just drumless music, and sounded fine in the room. Last night we had 4 fairly loud rock bands and it was just too much and people couldn't really hear the vocals, they were at their limit before feeding back. I'm not really much of...

Can someone help identify this foam?

I think it's some sort of mattress foam, but not really sure. Someone gave it to me and I took it on the chance that it's useful. If not I'll probably throw it out. Any ideas?

I wanted to use it as a front-end for DAW, or just be able to mix out to 8 channels. Ideally wanted a direct out for each input.

I have one of these but it only has the 4 bus outs, which makes it a little inflexible. Do you have a workaround for that?

At the very least, answering the question "what do they sound like in the room?" is as good a place to start as any. this is a good point. I guess I'm trying to reconcile what it sounds like in the room with what I'm trying to listen for. Sometimes to me it 'sounds good in the room' and then when I...

Im just after a solo drum track that somebody here has recorded that they consider to be of high/professional quality, that I can A/B against my own drum recordings. Does that not make sense? Genre doesnt really matter as much, but let's just say hard rock since that's what I mostly record.

Can someone show me what a good drum recording sounds like?

Just looking for a wave file or mp3 of solo drums that sound professional and good. I'm just after something to compare to my own drum sound, to hear where it should be at.

thanks

Re: Mix sounds fine on monitors?bad on ipod headphones.

I'm having a weird problem with a mix that someone else did for me, where it sounds fine on monitors, but as soon as I put it on an iPhone and listen through those great-sounding *cough* Apple earpods, it sounds super bright and lacks all low end and low mids. The solution to this should be obvious...
