old school jazz touring trick is to hang the suit up in the hotel bathroom, close the door and run the shower on hot for 2 hours. ecologically responsible, no. easiest way to steam a suit yourself, yes.

send it in to AEA. Just got my 74b back from them after I put it in front of one too many bass drums... it sounds better than ever. much better than ENAK's restoration.

correct me if I'm wrong, but the head basket was put on incorrectly when the capsules were replaced... the metal frame is directly in front of the top capsule... when the head baskets are aligned, the capsules should also be aligned... IIRC. unless I'm tripping, you might want to fix that... or knoc...

thanks guys!

yes, Wordpress is the platform for it. I really like the liquid quality of it too, will be good once we get more images, then I think the autosort function will be awesome. it's kind of funny that our only piece of outboard on there is a space echo...

we post our rates, and they are (almost always) firm. anyone asking about a 20 day lockout knows they have a strong bargaining angle.... but we also have priced our rooms so that anyone who knows what's up knows that they are getting a sick deal. We (politely) decline any attempts at haggling in sit...

thanks for chiming in on how cool a desk this is. the dimensions are 40h, 98.5w, 30d... it's pretty heavy, but not insane.

it's on ebay right now, too.

FS: SoundWorkshop 34C 32ch with add'l 16ch returns section

We've been rocking this console in B for a minute now, but we are planning a huge upgrade to Studio A in the console dept, and so our much loved Auditronics 501 will be moving to B and displacing the SoundWorkshop. It is a great sounding, easy to use inline console. We had the master section recappe...

Blumlein is great in front of drums. I have done it a bunch. Lately I seem to have moved on, but that's how it goes, innit. I'll likely be back to it. Also, if the rest of the setup is something that you know works, just print it, even it you're not super excited about it in the tracking. Sometimes ...

Views: 11633

The tone of a vocal, or any other close mic'd sound, is hugely influenced by the room... and the 2k/day studio most likely has a great sounding room. That's still the most important part of the equation (after great talent)... and it's the reason why recordings made in 'real' studios will always sou...
