I love the picture of the singer holding the pop filter in front of the mic, great idea! Make the singer do something useful for once! I wasn't actually planning on recording vocals, so for some stupid reason I didn't take a pop filter. But luckily I kept the mesh fronts on my monitors (to have som...

Ok. So largely to your all of your advice, I ended up using the huge room. It was freakin great. As you'll see in the pics, I have no isolation of the guitar and bass amps. I had the amps low enough to the point where they wouldn't bleed into the drum mics. Originally the goal to was to record guita...

I personally love a PRO VLA for vocals. I haven't tried many other compressors, but I haven't had any problems at all and pumping is not a problem.

I was hoping that the signal would just pass through. Another question...if I were to get a one of those new MOTU Ultralites that have 8 lines, to daisy chain it to my 828, how important is a external clock? Could I get away without getting one, without too many problems?

Using the ADAT inputs on MOTU 828 mkII

The other day I saw an article with a guy who used an old ADAT for extra line inputs plugged into the ADAT input into the converter. Easy 8 discrete line ins. How would this work? I'm assuming this would work in real time? Also would there be any a-d coversion going on. Would the channels going thro...

Thanks guys, you confirmed what I was leaning towards. Now...

Amps...Isolated or live feel?

Fortunately I know how the room sounds, freakin great. I've recorded drums in there before. Lush. Not too wet. So I'm not to worried on that end.

I would go with the B3/C4 in MS about 3' away into the VLA for the guitar.

Hope the session goes well.

Choosing A Recoridng Space

I was just asked by a band to track an EP for them, with basic tracks recorded live. The last few recordings have been plagued by the click- it's killed the energy. So at this point we have a few options as to recording spaces and I'm almost baffled right now. It's a really tough call. They'll be re...

There's actually an easy solution to all of this chatter.

Get T-Racks and master it yourself. Done and done. Sometimes you just gota do it yourself.

:wink:

Actually, I wish the bands I recorded had the budget to go to a real mastering engineer.
