Re: 500 series racks - how much power do I need?

Not to discount the Radial, but on the cheap the Midas L10 looks like a crazy deal. I have an L6 which is just fine for my needs. I like the easy chaining of channels (switch versus patching cables), and 10 year warranty is legit. 8) Do you think the internal switched power supply is a compromise? ...

500 series racks - how much power do I need?

Hey folks, I'm looking to finally dive into the 500 series world and need some recommendations for a chassis. Here's the backstory: I recently moved out of my studio, and I'd like to condense my gear into a portable 6U rack case while retaining the capability to record a full band live. I already ha...

Re: Source For Used DAW Computers?

Just out of curiosity, why do you use 5 or 6 PCs at a time?

Re: Sytek no longer making the MPX 4aii?

Just stumbled on their website as I'm debating selling one of mine and saw it's discontinued. i guess there are probably an awful lot of them out there, but figured there would still be a market for these? just surprising is all. these still hold up pretty damn well, and I can't think of anything b...

Re: Reducing noise from a vintage synth?

I had some noise issues with a Baldwin Fun Machine organ, and I just tried every combination of cable/DI/pad/phase/level until I found what worked best (I also had to disconnect the front panel lights which were adding some noise!). It still has a base level of noise that will not go away, but you c...

Re: sound effect libraries - good forums for second hand?

I don't know how or why someone would or could sell a "used" sound effects library, but there is a ton of great free stuff out there! I've found out about a lot of freebies (often limited-time deals) via the Tonebenders podcast: http://tonebenderspodcast.com/ This site is great too (for libraries an...

Re: Mixing template in Reaper

Step 1: pay for the license if you haven't already, those folks deserve it

Step 2: whatever works for you! I usually leave the group/bus faders at unity until I need to adjust or compress a whole group.

Re: acoustic meta-material

From what I gather it's the shape that's rejecting sound, not the material. And it seems like it has to be finely tuned for one frequency or range of frequencies. So heck yeah I'm sure it's great for exhaust systems, etc, but maybe not much else :(

Re: Surround Sound Thread

Lately though, I've been getting into the immersive stuff for binaural production - I think that has a lot more potential for music, especially since the majority of people seem to be listening on headphones nowadays. 360 video and AR/VR application are cool, but I think even as a standalone music-...

Re:

Nobody has mentioned the knee. Exactly what I was going to say. Limiters typically have a much steeper knee than regular compressors, in addition to higher ratios and faster attack times. Instead of the compression gradually becoming more pronounced as you approach the threshold (like, say, a vocal...
