Audio-Technica Pro 37?

Anybody know these? What do you like them on?

A friend just turned me on to a pair...

The whole issue of translation aside, I still find mono very useful, and I check often when I mix. If something goes sideways in mono I go back to stereo and listen with a new ear. By the time I've fixed that thing to where it works well in mono, it almost always sounds in stereo as well.

Was this a 12 step kind of deal, or did you just go cold turkey?

Another aspect of it is bleed . Or spill, as they say in the UK. It's not so much mixed to death in post but that after the 60s --especially in the 70s when the technology first made it possible-- every instrument was separate, gated, isolated, even if the musicians were all in the same room. Made ...

I'm kind of baffled too. As revered as the 57 is by a lot of folks, there is always something that sounds better, and It's not like I have a ton of choices.

The biggest difference to me is that those old records sound like a band in a room, whereas now days records to seem to be a surreal kind of impression of humans making music. There was a lot less fussing over the record making process, and an emphasis on nailing the performance. The record making s...

This is cool. It sounds pretty zen.

I love the M88! Have you used M88s as drum overheads before? How did they work out?

Wait, what? Not thrying to a buzz kill here, but what's the point? That condesor mic are less 'fun' to use than dynamics? That this will somehow make for a better record? That you just don't personally like the sound of condesors? That you're so bored with making records that you have to invent this...

I can't get the file to open on this pee cee here at work, but have you tried a condensor mic? Have you tried pulling the mic further back from the amp?

Just for the record I wasn't knocking jazz either. I'm a big fan, especially the classic Blue Note era stuff. Elvin at Birdland playing Afro Blue? Shiiiiiiit.... :shock:

I'm really liking mine on overdriven guitar, especially in conjunction with another mic. I tried it on a vocal and ended up going with a condenser. That?s not to say it was bad, just maybe not for that song. It could be that EQ would have won the day for the R44, but the condenser was closer right o...

JoJos DVD is great for technique, but it's not going to teach you any beats. I highly recomend 'Groove Essentials'. There is a package with a book (to learn to read drum notation and follow charts) a DVD (with visual instruction breaking down beats part by part) and play along MP3s with all the groo...
