Re: Reverb for Drums (Analog Tascam 388)

Re: Adding Center Detent Pan Pots to a TEAC Model 1 Line Mixer?

That's so true about center detent never being "true". I've talked to people like Dan Kennedy at Great River about this in depth. The only way to get true center is to hardwire a "pan cutoff" like I have on my RND 5088 console, but removing the pan bumps the ch level up 3 dB!

Re: Sytek no longer making the MPX 4aii?

I kinda soured on my 4 ch pre pretty fast and sold it, but I knew a lot less about good gear back then and have grown a lot. Mike was knowledgable, obviously.

Re: Dear larry

Dear Nathan,
I forgot we let that go. Yeah, I'm a total fucking jerk now. All my friends have stopped calling or coming by and I hang out with a bunch of angry biker/pirates and we steal candy from small kids while shaming them on social media.

One for FOH and two for me. Then I run two preamps. One set normally and the otherset 10 db lower. It's saved my ass a bunch of times.
It's such a simple trick but so good! I learned it from a FOH/club guy a few years ago, I was like, "Duh!"

Re: No fancy tube mics - am I missing out?

The first tube LDC mic I bought was a Manley Cardioid Reference (not the gold one!). It blew my mind, as mostly I had heard AKG 414s (elsewhere, I hate them) or the Langevin CR3A's that Elliott Smith and I had. It was $1800 I think. But then I got a Soundelux 251 and it was even better on more peopl...

Re: No fancy tube mics - am I missing out?

If it sounds good stop buying gear and just make records. Fuck all these forums and gear marketing. Oops, did I say that?
