Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

There's another thing I am just now noticing.... On the initial recording in question I was able to set the master on my garage band at 0db without any clipping. I think I was confused about something. It seems my initial transfer was done "properly." But I'm noticing something new... I have some o...

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

mastering engineers often clip ADC's (or software or analog outboard) to get a limiting effect that preserves the transient punch rather than using a limiter that will usually soften it / impart its particular unique artifacts - it's a good combination of the two in careful doses (or none of the ab...

The guy I got it from said he replaced the fuse and that didn't fix it.
perhaps they put the wrong or defective one in - try another one

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

If you're getting the results you're after more power to you ! Again If you read what the OP is telling us you'll see this isn't a flat transfer question - they seem to be multi outputting off the 388, having problems with the master buss clipping and overall apparent volume with the 8 summed tracks...

Re: Mixing a band with a single, mono electric guitar

surprising to hear people suggest using two amps etc. etc. etc. when it's stated that band wants to sound like themselves Of course it doesn't happen without the band knowing what's going on. I don't use it to re-invent the sound of the band but to translate the sheer force of a show into something...

Re: tube amp debugging (jet city 20 watt combo)

I'm not an expert on this stuff either but it's usually easy to fix once you find the spot

did you check the fuse?

the power supply filter cap/s might be bad ?

Re: Tips for Dumping 388 > M-Track 8 > Garage Band

1) make the 388 sound however you like it the best regardless of anything 2) properly connect the 388 to the ADC (interface) if it's all unbalanced connections use the shortest best quality cable if the interface is balanced input only you'll need to convert it with a transformer on each line for i...

Re: Mixing a band with a single, mono electric guitar

surprising to hear people suggest using two amps etc. etc. etc. when it's stated that band wants to sound like themselves maybe take a note from Albini in cases like this? take a good "audio photograph" of what they do and don't mess around with their sound - learn how to capture it just as they do ...

Re: Mixing a band with a single, mono electric guitar

Hey gang! Over the years I've gotten all too good at creating a wall of stereo distorted guitars. Doubling stuff with single guitarists, big sounds with two, doing two amps (and sometimes delaying one of them). What I haven't done much of is the root of rock and roll: Just one guitar. I've tried to...

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

if you wanna take your tapes into the studio to work you prob ought to get the same format your studio has, no? how are you going to take say a 1/2 -8 reel to a studio that has say a 2"-24 ? yea typically you can't run cross format at least not without a changeout of headstock and guides and recalib...

Re: Monitor dilemma

z reviews is totally right on when he says the Kalis are designed by people on a passionate revenge mission to make them good - I've noticed a lot of folks don't stay up to date with the latest innovations in gear and just recommend the same old stuff from decade or two ago because that's what they ...

ha nah - I have a lot of respect for good paint jobs though and I've done them on places I've lived

one of my grandfathers was a painting contractor actually

Re: Monitor dilemma

It would be hard to demo the B&Ws and they are a hi-fi passive speaker that really need a good power amp to shine

the Kalis have been the talk of the town recently and are designed amplified and adjustable to different placements and more easy to demo

so check em out !
