If you have a control room, put the singer in there. The band can face the glass and have eye contact. Then you can retrack a final vocal later. Then Harmonies

Edit:
In a bedio, a pair of video feeds, screens, Mic/Headphone extension cords and another room for the singer would work.

I've got a uni rack mount 1 u item I bought years ago for this kind of thing. I moved several items on and off, and never had to drill a hole. Look for it or a simple blank you can drill as you go. If nothing else, you could go to W.World and get something to stick it, lots of options, ymmv :lol: by...

A pair of focusrite pro 40's with the Bla mod and Audient 880 would get you to 24. The two 40's modded come in under 2k, and the 880 is going around 1400, plus has nice features/sounds good to me.

In the early 70's we used 1/2 inch revox or ampex mono machines as our tracking machines for pretty much whatever at AM radio stations and Fm. At that time, I thought they sounded great, it would be interesting to hear one today. The material was usually transferred to carts for on air use. 1/4 inch...

if it's just a capsule swap, no sweat. Just remove and replace withone you want. If the original was too bright try a U47 clone. There are several various choices. C12's, 67, 87, and some co.,s' like Blue sell capsules too. look around a bit.

I have an Antec 850, that's been eating a lot of dust and dirt in a construction environment, for about 4 years, and knock on wood, still getting it. It's the most quiet thing in this rv, let alone what's outside. Seasonic would be my upgrade path.

Yeah, decoupling...sorry, to my mind it's tying the rails together... maybe more to what they do @BLA, dunno. Read the blurb on the pro 40's @ BLA. One link I found showed the caps they are bypassing with. Still, I have no experience with smd parts so it goes to them...for me. It's fun, but I'm way ...

I'm sure they do, if you read what they are doing and search around you can find photos of some of their mods. They are replacing 4580 op amps with one of my fav's (BB2134) and doing larger cap replacement, along with tying the power rails to avoid other ill's. All in all it's higher fidelity you ca...

Hi, I most certainly wasn't trying to pick a fight. I have a pro 24 dsp and pro 40. I'm a bit disappointed that the pro 24 doesn't have an upgrade path. I use a pair of 312's on the line ins, but the converters would sound better, modded. The mods weren't available when I bought them a couple of yea...
