Re: Handheld that sounds like like an LDC

I had a rock singer bring a shure beta 87, and we ended up using that. I wouldn’t say it sounds like a u87 but I was pretty impressed by it in the context of this band.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Monoprice has a boundary microphone in their stable right now, was discounted down to $35 last week so I ordered 2 (not received yet). Always wanted my own 421s and always need more at the studio so i ordered 2 (not received yet). Been skeptical but finally pulled the trigger on a Gamechanger Audio ...

Re: Best vocal mic under 2K?

I think something like a 414 would be a solid mic to have in the cabinet, and maybe a nicer dynamic mic for when that doesn’t work out. I’m not really convinced that spending $2k on a single mic is always the best use of money, assuming you’re in a home studio? Some people would argue about also con...

Re: MD421's right now

Unsure if related, since you don't see this across their entire product line, but this probably isn't helping: https://www.prosoundnetwork.com/busines ... ing-market

Re: MOTU 16A vs Apollo x16 vs ???

I’m pretty happy with my MOTU 1248 (same family). If you want to buy from a company with a reputation of supporting their products, with quality sound and performance, flexible routing, I think they are a solid choice. I would not describe the upper level MOTU as consumery, in fact a lot of companie...

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

I like to put up a spaced pair of SDC overheads "by the drummer" and pointed at the shells not the cymbals, instead of outside of the kit pointed at the cymbals the way some folks do it...if that makes sense.

Re: Perfect Empty boxes for shipping 1RU devices?

I often end up making a custom size box. If you want the thing to arrive in good shape (no bent rack ears, etc) i have a few suggestions. 1. Remove rack ears if possible and wrap them separately (so they don’t scratch) and same for power supply/cord. 2. Wrap whole unit generously in bubble wrap. 3. ...

Re: 16 more channels of analog compression

I mean I see a lot of the cheap old rack units for sale, cheap...from churches and stuff so nothing most people probably get excited about, but the Behringers, dbx, presonus, Alesis of the world all seem cheap by me...I picked up 3 3630s for like $20 each... Assuming relatively low budget, I’d proba...

Re: Listening to music ... like this?

Since all of my sight lines in big concerts like this have been ruined by douche bags recording video with phones and tablets, I expect those people are now sitting at home reliving these concerts through their screens and distorted audio. I wonder if these same proposed venues have rethought the co...

Re: Who has used Ramsa boards?

I think the problem with these older boards is if you don't have something with a hot name you just can't give them away. But if you have a use for them and come across something that works you can pretty much name your price.

I don’t use tuner apps much but Polytune works well for me, and was free at the time.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

I’ve looked at Meris a few times over the years but what kind of bugs me is the secret button presses...ive never been able to try one in person (without purchasing) to confirm my fears. What do you think? I don't think they are that intense - the reverb especially is pretty straight forward. The P...
