Just a few days ago while tracking drums, I put a mic just slightly down the hallway between the live room and control room. I have an isolation door between the rooms at the end of the hall, and so I experimented with leaving the door open to various degrees. It worked out that maybe 30 deg. open r...

As a fellow Iowan, I too could definitely use a pair of hotpants. My control room is warm though, and I could use some non-waves plug ins...Keep warm, Jason!

Dang Raymond, that's awesome! If you don't mind my asking, how did this come about? Did you have a set plan to record X amount of bands in X amount of time for release online, or did things just start to snowball? Freakin' Jason Falkner in the studio...I'm very impressed and proud of what you've don...

I'll make sure that I can get that day off work, and I'll confirm tomorrow. This will be great!

I guess I feel kinda silly for sounding all 'go for it!' in regards to tape machines. I fully know the pitfalls and pains they can incur. I lucked out and did my research and got a couple great machines. That said, I've been under their hoods many times...Reason I'm into it is because it fits my min...

Yeah, I remember seeing the 3M when I went to get my JH110A. Def some groovy machines. And Matt is a good guy. They're always getting new machines to refurbish, so maybe get in touch when the time is right. Good luck!

I bought a 1/4" 2 trk recently knowing many nerds wouldn't even care to mix to the thing, since that would require them to master(!) it. But I don't care because I'm going to use it anyway. If not for mixdown, for tape delay, or as the previous poster said, a nice A/B option running off the repro he...

I started skateboarding when I was 13, which blew my musical tastes wide open. That along with my childhood friend Caleb, which with the help of his father's huge record collection made me a mix tape of the Dead Kennedys and Naked Raygun on the other side. After that I couldn't listen to Def Leppard...

Just wanted to throw in my two cents. Chris recently (Dec. 15th) installed an MCI JH-528 console for me that was refurbished by Steve Sadler, and while here got my 2" JH-16 24 trk rocking. I'm fairly new to maintenance on my machine and didn't have the tools nor the hands on knowledge to do it prope...

Old, old thread, but maybe check with the tech linked in the 7th post down. I remember when it was Soundtracs mania around here, people talked about their PSU's going out all the time. Maybe bite the bullet and get it rebuilt and mounted externally. Hope that helps! http://messageboard.tapeop.com/vi...
