It sounded good. I thought that the kick and snare were a tad dry for my tastes, and if I were sweetening the mix I probably would have experimented with some compression or limiting. But I say keep it how it is if your digging it.

This is a good question. I will say, I've been living with it for about a year at the place I'm in now. I often have a full band with PA and a couple power strips worth of studio gear running and have had no problems, and no noticeable ground hum or anything like that. I do run everything through a ...

I'm gonna have to do this too eventually, although all I have to do it switch my firewire cable and the outputs to my monitors and headphone amp to the 'a' unit since it's already on top. Do you have your two 400f's right on top of each other in the rack? Just wondering, I have mine spaced, but woul...

The only thing I can think that you might try is to switch a few things around and make your Onyx 400f-a your main unit and your 400f the secondary. It is annoying how Mackie did it. I have the same thing on my inputs. The ones from my slave come first. I was gonna try this but haven't because I've ...

Sabian 16" AAX Dark Crash

Asking $100. This is pretty heavily used. I've had it for about 3 years and it's got stick marks and grime on it, but absolutely no cracks or keyholes. It's brilliant and would probably clean up nice. I've never cleaned it though. It will probably last a lifetime if hit correctly. I bought it as the...

My guess is you need to up your buffer latency when doing overdubs and the clicks will disappear. I don't think it is a clock issue; it is an issue with your computer not being able to keep up with all the data. +1 I had this problem some years ago with my delta 1010lt when I first started using it...

This is good? Sounds like midi to me... No feel whatsoever. -Jake I agree, compare those to the Bonham tracks linked somewhere on that page. It's like night and day. They sound like they are sampled, even if they're not. But I guess that's what qotsa usually goes for, so they did a good job at it.

Looks awesome. It almost seems as though they took a page out of the Tracktion book of thought.

Gatorade bottles are good to piss into in the van because you can actually fit your dick in it to reduce spillage. Plus Gatorade is so damn tasty.

drunk horse

Can stop listening to these guys. All I have is their two latest, but damn. I love the sound of 'adult situations.' It sounds like a couple of les pauls a bass and a beat up drum set rocking in a jam room or something. In Tongues, the newest one sounds awesome as well. Similar feel, but different so...

I had a K Special Dry Ride for about 3 years and it was a great ride. It had actually one of the best ping sounds I've ever heard. The only reason I got rid of it was because I joined a three piece metal band and that ride had barely any wash to it. I really really wish I still had it though, the be...

aside from having to turn one's head to read the markings, why has nobody done this?
Someone just did.

I would go with the tried and true 'OC703 bass trap' on the walls and in corners idea. If you do a little research on this site you will find more than enough info on it. I did this with about 9 traps to my tracking room which is a little bigger than yours. It works well and I'm actually able to tra...
