Re: Just Curious...

As an artist, sometimes you hear things in your head in their entirety. It's like walkin around with a record in your head. So you let the stuff out, and it gets recorded, and then someone hits the play button, and you compare what you hear to what's playin in your head. Sometimes you get something ...

And if the price don't shoot too high, I'm on them :D

Re: can someone please give me the definition of Class A?

A class A amplifier stage basically means that the device (be it tube or transistor) is conducting current throughout the complete cycle of signal swing. think of it as always on. It is the most linear(has the lowest distortion) of the different class operations, but also the most inefficient. I'm s...

Re: Looking to modify my snake splitter. A few questions...

A dpdt switch could be installed to bypass the transformer (you'd have to wire one per channel), but you run the risk of both foh and feed trying to feed phantom to the source. A better option might be to install a 4pdt switch such that it changes who gets the isolation (the feed or the foh). Person...

Re: One more drum mic'ing question(s)

I'd just try it both ways. Set up one way, record a couple minutes. Setup the other way, record a couple minutes. Use your ears to decide which one you like better.

Re: Ever developed self-discipline? (...starting from zero.)

If it means enough to you, you will find the discipline to do it. If it doesnb't, you won't. It's that simple.

Forcing yourself to do stuff you don't want to is torture, not discipline =)
