The Lewisohn book is worth having simply for the exhaustive notating of the individual takes, reduction mixes, etc.

I consider the Lewisohn book and 'Recording the Beatles' to be companion pieces.

I'm in disbelief that I'm the first to say a strat. Rosewood fretboard, fat neck, tremolo blocked off or hard tail. Any decent single coil pu's, I like fender Texas Specials. I can get pretty much any tone I need out of a strat. I own a Hamer 335 copy, a G&L tribute ASAT, a 70's Ibanez Artist and a ...

K271's are very nice indeed. I need a pair. I like my 240's, but the iso would be nicer.

So, it appears that pretty much everyone who has posted on this thread so far has more knowledge of the subject than jeff, who's intent it seems was to 'edumacate' us. Great.

What's he got against 'kids in basements' anyway? I bet many of them have converters that are better than behringers.......

I almost always track certain things with some compression. I normally compress the snare and kick mics a bit and most of the time the OH's too. I almost never track the tom mics with compression. I used to eq more on the way in, but have backed off unless something needs obvious correction before g...

I dug this part: "The mix itself was done at A&R Recording in New York by John Simon and Tony May, who Simon describes as "an excellent engineer who taught me a lot. One of the things that he taught me when getting a mix going was to start with the bass and get it so it hung around minus seven on th...

Replies: 14
Views: 2426

bellari makes a small pre called the MP105 that runs around $100 (you can get it at MF). never used one, but it has 75db of gain, which should be enough to get a good level out of a ribbon and i do believe the tube runs at full voltage (there is an IC in the output stage). I've got 2 of those, but ...

I had a similar experience way back in the cassette 4 track days. recorded a cover of sympathy for the devil, acoustic with my band at the time. it had 3 ac gtr tracks, bass, mandolin, hand perc and double tracked vocal. there's a weird, in-tune howl in the background that seems to change pitch with...

I was lucky..

there are size and weight limitations to FedEx & UPS standard service..so going with them might not be possible with some machines..
Me too, I got a mx5050 via UPS, all was fine. But the guy shipped it to me in a well made crate.

Another affordable that I use a lot is the old joe meek vc3q, the little green box. Don't know about the new one though, haven't seen one. that meek can be downright colorful on it's own, with a ribbon it's a nice little combo. Plenty of gain, and it also has a comp in it that can be wonderful or wa...

I think most of the time I like a tamb without a head in the studio. I like a decent , 'bean shaped' plastic one with a handle, like a LP or Rhythm Tech.
