Re: Listening to mixes in the car...

yeah i do it too, depends on which car, i'm cheap so i have old cars most just have CD players no USB. i also listen to mixes on my home stereo. it's a nice 70's reciever and speakers (yamaha ns 5). those 2 plus listening on headphones helps to get a better all around mix.

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

a person after my own heart. i dumped the DAW's 10 years ago and haven't looked back. Had a bunch of Tascam 388, Teac 3340s, Otari MX5050, and have settled on a Fostex Model 80. The Tascam 388 prices are outrageous and not worth it in my opinion unless you can find one completely ready to go with de...

Re: New Orleans style horn section

No, I mean the elements. Like... Two trumpets, trombone and tuba, maybe? there is no standard brass band setup. just put second line in youtube or brass band or jazz funeral to get a good idea. snare drum, tuba, bass drum, and then horns is the most basic. some add woodwinds, cowbell, and more perc...

How would you guys assemble a N'awlins Funeral Procession/Sally Army style brass section?
it's called a Second Line. Usually it's bass drum with splash cymbal they use as both ride/crash. Tuba, Trumpet, and then varying Bone, Sax, Clarinet, etc.

Re: New Orleans style horn section

second line main elements are drum, bass/tuba, and melody. i think you'll be fine as long as that Upright is doing some second line Mambo lines (1 and 5 with walk ups/down) like the Tuba usually does. Trumpet and Trombone should be fine to do melody and counter point. no need for a full horn section...

Re: Pre-Amps Rec's for Instruments and Mics?

Shure M67 gives vintage warmth and wool. 25-50 bucks on ebay. buy an xlr cable to chop up to make the pigtail for the Line Out. Use the rest of the 200 to buy a DI to go into the SHure. I love my M67's.

Re: Reusing Tape

i prefer 1.5mil tape on my fostex. i'm able to hit the tape harder and i get better bass response. i've read many responses on forums from ex tascam and fostex employees that say the wear difference is negligible and the only reason they recommended 1mil is because they got better head wrap which me...

Re: Organization: shelves vs cabinets vs drawers vs hooks

Pedals and noise gadgets are currently piled where they’re visible and accessible. I approach those things the same way I approach kitchen tools. As soon as they’re put away I cease to use them. Sage advice here Dave. I am going to move some stuff around in my space to make sure all my pedals are o...

Re: Show Us Your Junk - cool gear porn YouTube Channel

John Vanderslice's studio Tiny Telephone, wow. That dude and studio seem awesome, his recording philosophy and studio philosophy (free tape, free weed, free coffee) is sweet. i need to make a record there one day.

Re: Adding Center Detent Pan Pots to a TEAC Model 1 Line Mixer?

revive audio said it's beyond their skill set. i guess i'll just try and "center" them best i can without the detents when i make scratch mixes.

Re: Reducing noise from a vintage synth?

i would try the "low" setting first, see if that helps. if not try the DI on both Hi and Low setting and see which is best. I'm going to guess turning off the Chorus will lower some noise as well, i have a chorus on a synth that is also noisy, but when off it lowers the noise floor considerably.

Re: Adding Center Detent Pan Pots to a TEAC Model 1 Line Mixer?

i've reached out to revive audio to see if they would mod it to have center detent and be compliant with Pan law.
