Re: people with consoles

I think I had a long talk with Geoff Daking about this once, and he said to leave it on. The rush of current and filling capacitors at turn on is when the system gets stressed. But I turn off the RND 5088 here. That way the AC doesn't run all night cooling the room down. The again I could fry eggs o...

Re: Archives

I get it. I wonder if we had online subscription stuff in place that made updating difficult? I dunno. But yeah, buying 132 issues worth of content is also 23 years of work... and I can guarantee you it has exhausted me....

PDF's of the new issue are free (in the world). If you've had a subscription for years, and maintained the accou...

Sound Designer files

Does anyone have the ability and knowledge to convert an old Pro Tools session with Sound Designer II files into a current session? I have a mix client (and former Tape Op writer) who wants me to mix something by next Monday and he just discovered this old session is SDII. I'm sure he'd be fine with...

Re: U195 and too many midrange mics

I rarely sell mics. They all shine at some unexpected juncture.

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

If you can make it fun, then do it. It was fun to use the 238 recently and I get it. Between Tape Op and Pro Tools I’m sick of computers.

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

I'm with Eric. I've been through the valley of overbias. I own 3 or more tape decks right now, and the reason the main 3 are Otari is that they are like Toyotas and keep running. I have spent well over $60,000 on tape decks over the last 20+ years. Seriously. Decks, parts, repairs, MRLs, spare decks...
