Re: mastering for cassette

People actually listen to their cassettes? I thought it was just a novelty and people just redeemed the download code. This cracked me up a little. haha. I have a bunch of rad tapes that have been sitting here collecting dust and have bought a few on those bandcamp days they've been having. I just ...

Re: Who is still using Pro Tools 9 and doesn't want to upgrade?

PT9 was about when (home studio version) pro tools got good, I stuck with that for awhile. 11/12 was solid and some good new features, stayed more or less stagnant since then. Stopped at...late 2019 I think. I like modern plugins and other software so PT9 just wasn’t practical for me anymore unless ...

Re: mastering for cassette

I don’t know shit about the topic, but are they by chance using a different kind of tape formula than your reference? Maybe?

Re: Alternatives to DAWs?

My PT set up isn't underserving me at all. I think the reason I am considering this move is more of a philosophical practice and, further, a new challenge. I am always challenged by PT and constantly trying to learn new ways to do things. The challenge of going in a more or less analog direction is...

Re: Alternatives to DAWs?

It depends on your needs. Is your DAW used for basic recording and mixing or for editing, arrangement, etc..? For me, a computer based DAW is going to be simpler to operate than something standalone...because complicated editing, midi, automation, syncing video, running plugins is important. There a...

Re: Alternatives to DAWs?

what is it that you are not getting with your current setup? I am currently covered under the Avid plan and it's not doing me a bit of good. I've reported a fatal bug in Pro Tools 2020 since the first build came out, have been going back and forth with Avid support and a slew of troubleshooting...,...

Re: Alesis HD24 too old for recording band rehearsal?

The easiest way *for me* to get audio out of the HD24xr was to use an adat interface, I used a m audio lightbridge...and just record to the computer in real time. I tried some of the software tools and thought they were janky. Recording into the computer is basically foolproof and only takes as long...

Re: Alesis HD24 too old for recording band rehearsal?

Is that the one for sale in KC by chance? Yes it’s a pretty fair deal. To answer the question ...I used an HD24xr for many years...recorded concerts with it, etc... sometimes with a Behringer mx8000 (mackie 24.8 copy)... i think it sounds pretty decent. For a rehearsal recording, the quality of the ...

Re: microphone death

Never. Now I have a couple beta 52s I’m wondering about as they don’t get regular use (like uh all of my mic collection right now).

Re: Does anyone mic the hat and if so why?

If I were miking drums for my tastes alone, being honest I like to think of the kit as an instrument not a bunch of separate things that need their own mic...my favorite recordings are more often than not the 2 mic sessions, and there’s never too little hat in those...and even when I have several de...

Re: Does anyone mic the hat and if so why?

I do but 9/10 times I don’t use it, for the same reasons you mentioned...there’s plenty of hat already.

Re: Overdrive pedals educate me

There’s some choices for subtleties and some choices for more up there. I’m a pedal junky so my opinion may differ. I like something tube screamer-ish for shaping a clean or dirty (mesa amp) tone..I don’t usually set one for a lot of gain as much as it is kind of an EQ/emphasis sort of thing. You do...

You could try B&H Photo too. As I type this they still have them at the good price.
