Re: Onboard Guitar Pre-Amps/Boosters

Have you tried balancing by adjusting pickup height?

Re: Logic X Pro - Tempo and Audio Files

All tape machines I've used have some degree of wow and flutter...this is not isolated to the 388, just a nature of the beast. The only luck I've ever had in correcting this is manual editing..yes in a 4 minute song this could easily reach hundreds of edits if absolute rigidity is required. Why I al...

Re: people with consoles

I've heard the same debate with both diesel engines and computers. it's a religious war. I believe there’s some truth in computers. At my work we have a couple 25 year old sun microsystems terminals in daily use still...granted these are not x86 based systems, but I rarely turn the computers off be...

Re: Vocal Mic Bleed

I don’t know anything about the Waves but Izotope RX is like Magic. It isn’t always 100% but it can be the difference between a usable take or not. Basically it has a learn function. In your case you would let it analyze your guitar track and then you’d process the vocal track with the guitar track’...

Don't the manufacturers have recommendation?
Probably the manufacturers didn’t dream that folks would still be using the same board in 40 years is my guess.

Re: PT rig rentals?

I do have one follow up question — if I’m renting my computer with a PT installation... would he be able to use his own iLok, or will I have to include mine? I own the old PT 12.4 license on my own iLok... and he’s got PT 11.x + he’s got a new 2019.x Current subscription licensed on his iLok. Anyon...

Re: people with consoles

At the studio I do work out of we always shut the whole place down when we are done...console (MCI), 2”, rack... I imagine this is largely done to let the room cool down and cut down on electricity expenses.

Re: Pro Tools 2019 Perpetual or Subscription?

I’m pretty sure the current perpetual (changed in last few months) scoop is $599 then $199 per year, if you let it lapse it’s either $299 or $599 to reinstate it...I don’t remember. Actually now that I think about it they may require you to forfeit your perpetual and subscribe instead (meaning it wo...

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

Does this count as gear? God damn it's fun - https://www.ioptigan.com/ Sure does! I admit I forgot about this one. I used to have a real optigan but it barely worked so I got rid of it (not needing another project and all that). If I were independently wealthy I would buy one of these: https://www....

I’ve got a double muff that I like to voltage sag, maybe give that a whirl too.
Bet that sounds real, eh, dirty. :twisted:

What do you use to drop the voltage?
My power supply (one spot cs12) has this feature built in but there are also simple DIY projects to build a dying battery sim.

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

Yeah, I love it at like 8-10:00, tone at 8-9:00. It has just the right amount of SVT-ish grind without becoming fuzz right there. Yesterday I made a board of the Green Russian amd Triangle Nanos along with a Mastrotron. The Triangle is much hotter than the GR, and also sounds good on the bass, but ...

Re: Cassettes

I sold my 688 and 238 because i never could get into them like the 388...at the time I bought a whole case of new 60 min (i think) type 2 tapes from delta media. I would say good riddance to them, except I own a few tape based gadgets (Landscape HCTT, Onde Magnetique OM1, and Onde Cassette Echo). Ha...
