spdif? what the hell is this

i know its digital io, but for my delta 66 is there any use for this if i don't use/can't afford a dedicated AD converter? can it only pass two tracks? it looks like a stereo configuration. thanks

Re: black lion bellari mp105 mod

WOW... I don't think there is anything I enjoy more than getting better sound for close to nothing. I did this mod and i was floored!! :o About the noise... I had a hell of a problem until i switched from the 1/4 " out to the xlr out. i assumed the 1/4" was trs balanced but it isn't. When i went to ...

Re: Pick a pre???????????

so you guys would go with two vtb-1s ($200) over a second aphex 107 ($250) for overheads? (tape op minis)

my first aphex 107 is for kick/snare and others (guitar,bass,etc)

thanks for the advice,
this is my last purchase for a while so i want to make it a good one.

mackie vlz pro vs plain old

Does anyone know if there is that much of a difference in the quality of the mic pres between the regular say ms1202 and the 1202 vlz pro? Does anyone like the sound of the older models?

Re: Alesis 3630 compressor

for anyone who has done the mod, how long did it take? was it tough? problems? I know my way around soldering and components but want to see how involved this is before i committ. my 3630 sounds pretty crappy. the mod seems like the way to go.

Re: diy mics - big fun for all!

here's a stupid question from someone trying to build these condensors from the tape op 16 article. here goes... do you solder the connections to the little capsule? its pretty small and i was worried that a 15W iron would heat this thing up so much that it would cook it. It mentions epoxy but that'...

Re: mastering to tape?

that sounds awesome, but i think that unit is like 10 grand. I am looking for something considerably less. JB suggested an AMPEX ATR-700. I can't find one of these so I am wondering if there is something comparable so i have more thatn one unit to look for.

thanks

Re: mastering to tape?

now i guess i hunt for a 1/4" 2 track deck. I know everyone like ampex and studer but they are dam hard to find. Anyone standouts among the not so studio quality 1/4" decks (fostex, tascam, pioneer, et al)?

Re: mastering to tape?

thanks all,
I really only want the tape in the chain to get the warmth and feel of a record recorded on 2" tape. Guys i admire like phil ek all use tape and i am just looking for a way to put that into my mix. maybe if 1/4" mixdown isn't the answer then i should look into plug-ins?

Hello, I record pop/rock at home using 24bit/48k computer DAW. Before i spend the money on a 1/4" reel to reel I am wondering if anyone else has mastered to tape and then converted back before CD burn? If so did it make much difference? I am wondering if it is worth it and would i notice a differenc...
