Re: Preamps: Presonus M80 WITHOUT Jensens vs Mackie 1604VLZ

I also don't know how handy you are, but I started this thread https://messageboard.tapeop.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=88011&p=704738 about making a simple 8 channel mic preamp, I ended up not doing it because I got a phantom powered mic, but the theory is there. If you have some soldering skills it's ...

Re: Preamps: Presonus M80 WITHOUT Jensens vs Mackie 1604VLZ

I'd go with the Presonus on the theory that any transformer is better than no transformer atall, and you aren't guaranteed the Mackie is fixable. Trying to get a noise fix on a prosumer mixer you'd have to find a tech who understood what you wanted from it.

Re: Boundary Mics For Bass Drums

Another issue could be, kits move. Whilst the drummer plays them you'll often find a bit of creep, even when they wedge them down with concrete blocks. I convinced my drummer his kick sounded better with no resonant head (it did). So I have the mic stand in the drum, on the pillow, its one I made fr...

Re: Another console/mixer opinions request...

I kinda like some of the old posts that see the light of day though. So we all should hit up Jim Williams for our console needs :mrgreen:

If it was the real MJF it explains why he needed a mini cinema, for him and Tom Cruise to hang out in.

Re: using 2 track tape machine as part of drum tracks?

I would have thought you'd use the overheads to line up, I don't think that the snare and kick would be dead on with the overheads in a standard tracking situation - they would be very slightly delayed. the snare mic is closer to the snare than the overhead mics are so it's a more accurate gauge to...

Re: using 2 track tape machine as part of drum tracks?

If you are resigned to lining them up visually in the DAW, why not just go ahead and track thru it? I guess my thought was that then I'd have a direct visual to line up the tape'd tracks with otherwise I am just guessing. I would have thought you'd use the overheads to line up, then again I would h...

Re: multitrack handheld recorders

Wasn't there a handheld you could also use as a 4 channel interface for a PC via USB? I always meant to look at one of those, and can't remember what it was.

Re: Ideas for Writing/Recording w/Kids!?!?

I don't know if the composition skill would be there at that age?

Following though, I'm involved in a home school co-op, and do the music side.

Re: Are all pads created equal?

Hey Drone— Thanks! Your post, linked below, is about building a really subtle pad — not really about picking different pads from different dealers. https://messageboard.tapeop.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=87180&p=700181&hilit=Pad#p700181 That said, if anyone has thoughts on WHirlwind vs RapcoHorizon......

Re: Are all pads created equal?

I seem to recall asking this same question (or similar) a year or two back here, and having it answered, do a quick search, you may get the answer, because I can't remember it two years hence :high:

I'd just send them a note: FYI, you sent me the wrong microphone, but I like it, so consider us good.
