Re: Stolen M49 on Ebay...

This reminds me of this music store in Minneapolis where their dealings are shady to say the least. Some 15 years ago, (I can't believe they're STILL in business), I called them asking if they had, at the time NEW, Marshall JCM900 100W guitar head. The man on the phone said, "we have that in stock, ...

Re: effectron/effectron II

Okay, I have the Effectron I (ADM 1020), II (ADM 1024), and Super Time Line (ADM 512). I would never part with these units. The 1020 simply has Input, Feedback, 2 selections for delay/flange choices, Modulator (modulator delay width and speed), and Output Mix. The 1024 has Input, Feedback, 6 selecti...

Re: time spent on mixing?

A mix is never finished, only abandoned. I've spent weeks on an album mix and I've spent a few hours. Either situation had its pros and cons. I have come to the point where I'd mess with something too much and call it the day, come back to it another day, go with the raw tones, and find it to be fin...

Re: m380

Muddy. I personally didn't like it on anything. I owned one for about two weeks before I sold it. Some people like it but I didn't, obviously. It emphasized frequencies I normally sweep out. When I tried using the mic I thought it was overrated. I suppose if I had a source that was too brittle it mi...

Re: Advise on outboard delay/reverb for under $350

Okay, here I go... I absolutely hated the sound of the Yamaha SPX90/II I had. It was brittle and lifeless. Roland Tape Echo--great for guitars and dreamy psychedelic vocals but with only a mono channel not much good for anything else (stereo overheads). Plus I don?t think the reverb is very good on ...

Re: Overhead Mics for Recording Drums?

I like the Neumann KM184's or Neumann CMV563's. I've used a pair of U67's above a kit and those sounded great as did a pair of U87's. I would imagine a pair of U47's would be nice. I had one U47 that I'd use for room sound and it worked really well. Boy, I never realized how much I like Neumann's. -...

Re: Pet Sounds

I bought an early 90's digitally remastered version of 'Pet Sounds' that had both the Mono album and remastered Stereo album. I prefered the Mono version but I like to hear the difference between the mono and stereo version. I'm not a big fan of remastered/remixed albums from the beginning of record...

Re: miking the snare shell revisited

I've been mic'ing the side of the snare for some time now (pointing it right in the snare hole) and I've been really happy with the tone. Like it's been stated before I tend to get a little kick drum 'basketball' tone bleed. I don't like to use gates but if I were on the snare config the kick still ...

Re: Royer Mic's on Strings

My second engineer has used the 121's before but I haven't, yet. He LOVES them so much I'm considering getting at least one if not a matched pair. I do have other ribbon mics like the RCA 44BX, (2) RCA 74B's, and an RCA BK5B (I have a thing for the RCA's) and they sound amazing for certain things. I...

Re: Contracts for studio work?

Many years back when I first started recording on my own I was jipped on a few things like proper credit and/or money. I did hire an entertainment lawyer and had a draft written up that I could fill in the necessary information. Usually when a band came in and saw a 15 page contract they'd get cold ...

Re: fatten my sound

First of all, know the frequencies that each instrument should fit in so they have space to breath. Second, refer to your favorite albums that have your idea of a 'fat' sound and disect what makes it 'fat'. Third, use some compression on bass and drums with some subtractive EQ--it allows for tight/t...

Re: Binaural anyone??

Hey Adam, You mentioned you use the binaural head as an overhead for drums. Where do you place it? I was thinking of getting a pair of binaural mics and having the drummer wear them but then I thought about the sounds drummers make when they play I thought it mught not be a good idea. Wow. I guess ...

Re: Is making your own cables really worth it?

I've bought Mogami cables and connectors in the past, cut them to length, and soldiered the necessary connectors...what a pain in the ass. When I moved my studio I ended up buying a ProCo 16 channel live box, cut it to the length I needed, and punch blocked the wires to the box. Needless to say it w...

Re: Binaural anyone??

I studied Binaural and Ambionics for several years in my spare time and I've built a Binaural Head mic. The two of us here at my studio use it all the time for drum overheads. It sounds really good for what we're after. I also bought the mics from Microphone Madness, they were a paired Binaural set ...
