A producer who records drum tracks here every once in a while threw in an Apex 205 with his last payment a few weeks ago. I was recording some guitar tracks the following day and decided to throw it up in addition to what I was using (SM57 on a Deluxe Reverb), and man does it sound good. I've still ...

Topic: The allure of adding EQ up top. The fear of adding too much
Replies: 23

In general I've always been a subtractive EQ guy, with the exception of when using a Pultec-style EQ (the Sonimus SonEQ is what I use). But regardless of the EQ, while I spent many years mistaking muddy for warm, I now do a lot with high end EQ, almost exclusively really high up where you mentioned....

Cajon (I'm sure I am pronouncing it as badly as I will play it) from Banjo Center: http://www.flickr.com/photos/craigs63/12564148885/ Hopefully a little better than drum machine/sequenced sounds for the RPM Challenge project this year, we'll see. Just for future reference you say it like "cahone". ...

So basically what we're saying we'd all like a newly-designed pop filter with a trough at the bottom to catch everything that inevitably pours out of the microphone at the end of every session.

In all seriousness, I took the survey. I'm curious what improvements are being considered.

I used the Furman setup at a nearby studio a a year ago or so, I really liked it. It took me a little while to wrap my head around how to route things (one stereo source, then four other mono sources, with each of these five things appearing on their own pot). For whatever reason I like that they us...

I was just looking at my Presonus Monitor Controller, which dims audio when the talkback is in use. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to have a footswitch option for this - I thought it did but apparently not. But I wonder if there's some way you might be able to use a monitor controller with talkback f...

I have 6 pairs of HD280s here. I love them. Great isolation for drum recording, and I love checking mixes on them. They don't have a huge boost in low end like a lot of headphones do, which is something I really like about them. I know that if I'm mixing and I hear MASSIVE low end then something's p...

SOLD Fender MIM Deluxe Active Jazz Bass - $550 shipped

Selling a MIM Fender Deluxe Active Jazz bass, looking for $550 including shipping. It's never left my studio, and has been used by a few clients but mainly used by myself. I tend to baby my instruments and it's as close to mint as you could want from a used instrument. No scratches, dead frets, elec...
