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...

Let's discuss spatial/immersive/ambisonic audio

Like many of us, I've been content with two channels for mixing music so far. However, with the popularity of VR and such, I've only just started seriously looking into spatial audio mixing/implementation as a marketable skill. Plus, I've got a project coming up (sound for a short animated film) so ...

Re: Let's talk substance

Um, but seriously though... I will get down with most substances (nothing too psychedelic), but It's gotta be the right one for the situation. Like choosing a microphone. Engineering for others: coffee, then a beer if someone brings them (they always do). Occasional pot or shot toward the end. Mixin...

Re: Let's talk substance

There's a parasitic fungus that infects male cicadas right as they emerge from their 17 years underground, eating away at their internal organs until their entire ass falls off. It causes them to become hypersexualized and prone to female mimicry. Researchers have recently discovered that it produc...
