Gating is something I (almost) always wait for the mix to do. There's really no sonic benefit of gating to tape that I know of. I did a "salvage-this-mix" session a while back, where the previous engineer had gated 4 toms and summed them to two tracks on tape. The gate cut off way too fast, and miss...

Wow... normally I avoid emulation-based gear like the plague... but this could be interesting.

I wonder how much it costs?

I have an oddball solid-state Hammond too (not sure of the model #), that I chopped down for gigs. A cool thing I found out about the volume pedal is that when it's disconnected, it doesn't short the sound - rather it sticks open at full-volume. I'd bet you just pulled a wire loose from the back of ...

don't worry, ribbon mics sound very warm, and should adequately compensate for the cold air.

The Tab to Transient function is the jam.
Also, I love using the down / up arrows for selecting edit in / out points.

Loans, financing and debt

Hey all, So I've been working as an assistant at several studios for about 3 years, and recording on my 001 in the meantime. Business at the existing studios seems to have peaked, and none of my clients can afford the higher rates anyway... So I'm thinking about building out a place. I'd like to set...

I'm pretty sure the last one was done on RADAR (I remember hearing that from a RADAR-evangelist friend of mine).

I actually found a few cool boxes at Goodwill a few months ago. They were originally for storing microscope lenses and parts. They're light-colored wood with a hinged top, a tiny clasp and a neat looking handle on the end. $3 each! Score! Speaking of which, I wonder if these boxes (very bottom of t...

Hunting for a space, Seattle area

...So here's the scenario: I work as an engineer at a couple studios around town, and try to freelance whenever I get the opportunity to. I've also started playing with a new band, and we're talking about doing some demo and / or album tracks. We practice in my basement, which periodically floods, h...

E-mail resume... call a studio... be really forward, but not too forward... stroke the ego of the engineer... but don't be too annoying. I think it's more of a vibe thing regarding a studio taking on an intern. Seriously, this is so crucial. Right now we have this guy from NY (We're west-coast) who...

Right - it's running balanced, XLR connectors, and hardwired to an SSL patchbay. The building is basically a treehouse, though, so there's no convenient conduits. There's a few spots, but for the most part this is just going to be anchored to the rafters. So, thicker guage the better, and go for a b...
