Re: No fancy tube mics - am I missing out?

Just so everyone can read this one more time: Grab a mic. Track the vocal. Work on your coaching and help them phrase and fix busy lines and move them close or away from the mic and tilt the mic up or down for effect and baffle the room or not and look at the lyric sheet and ask "What are you saying...

Re: Unusual recording gigs and new experiences- share your stories

This summer I recorded at a couple sessions of a rock 'n roll camp for girls (aged 8-16). Each time it was ten bands in about 4 hours, each doing 2-3 takes of a single song before the next band rolled in and they went back to their pizza party or decorating signs and whatnot. I brought my mobile rig...

Re: Old Colony Mastering build recap

Nice! I should get around to uploading my pics and writing up my studio building experience for the collective hive mind to assimilate.

PS: I've always envied that little tilty rolling rack. Is that a custom job?

Re: Singer/songwriters need a bib!

Did I accidentally wander over to the BattleBots forum again?

Cool idea, but seems a bit unwieldy and the PZMs would certainly catch a lot of room bleed in a lively room. However, I'd really love to hear this thing turned sideways and used as a stereo PZM room mic!

Re: Multing Lead vocals

I can't be the only one who clicked on this thread because it looked like "MUTING lead vocals" Anyway, I rarely fuck with more than one compressor on a vocal track but what I sometimes do (including literally minutes ago) is split the vocal onto separate tracks for different sections. In this case, ...

Seems prohibitively expensive to get new drivers and get everything running again. I'm inclined to go with the "Boat Anchor" analysis.
Or concrete shoes?

Re: What to do with a pair of NS-10s, half working

I know I heard about a company making new replacement cones/drivers specifically for NS-10s... I'll have to see if I can find out more.

Re: Reverb - show us your spaces...

Very cool space! How much remote tracking work do you get and how does it come to you?

Also, I write for Reverb and I'm wondering: did you write this yourself or did they? And also, did they reach out to you about it or you to them?

Re: Tape Storage Question - In the supplied plastic bag or no?

I'm starting to get a little big of a collection going vis a vis the 1/4" tape i use to record. The question is do you keep it in the plastic bag that comes with it inside the case? or just the reel inside the case with no bag? Reel w/ tape Plastic Bag Reel Case OR Reel w/ tape Reel Case Hmm, I sup...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Tech 21 Trademark 60. IMO, perhaps the ultimate S/S guitar amp, certainly a phenom pedal platform. Sounds great by itself, too. Yes! This is the only guitar amp I've ever owned and never felt like I needed another. I don't use the "dirty" channel much though, channel 1 gets plenty of gain by itself...

Re: Let's talk substance

I don't smoke when I'm recording unless I'm very confident that I have everything dialed in and can just relax and listen, and not early in the day. Always read the room though. If I can tell that anyone in the band would lose confidence in me for taking a puff, I definitely don't. Just depends on ...

Re: Let's discuss spatial/immersive/ambisonic audio

I’m not sure that Youtube or Facebook have added headphone type decoding to go along with their 360 video support. I think there is a lot of great possibility with 360, but it’s sort of somewhere between stagnant and withering on the vibe. Which is disappointing! I agree, 360 videos seem like a nov...
