It does, but when you connect stereo speakers, you can notice a difference with different length speaker cables, or so I've been told by reputable sources who did not expect to hear any difference. The salesslaves at Best Buy and every audiophile out there will tell you the same thing. Makes little...

you will probably also need a firewire soundcard of some sort to get the audio off your computer and into your mixer. Does he really need an audio interface? If he was recording, I'd be strongly in favor of an interface, but for live shows, is it really that bad to go off the built in line-out? Get...

Thanks for clearing that up what type of preamp would you recommend getting with the Delta 66? EH 12AY7 Tube Mic Preamp, Sytek MPX-4Aii, something Hamptone or Seventh Circle all get rave reviews around here. Could you explain more? Few components and cables? I am a little confused by what you were ...

If you really just want to simplify the whole digital interface process then getting a fire wire interface such as the Presonus Firepod (now called FP10) with 8 built in preamps may be a good way to go. Lots of people are using these and report good results. What do you mean by simplify the process...

Are you new to computer recording, or new to recording in general? What type of projects do you envision yourself working on? It is very unlikely that you will use your sound card once you have a recording interface, so don't spend any money on that. All of the interfaces except for the very high en...

Why aren't you using the Wordclock In/Out BNCs? It is very likely that you'll lower your jitter by using those.

Here is my method. Buy cinder blocks, a solid wood door and a 2"x6". Stack cinder blocks for table legs, top with door. place two cinder blocks on far edge of the door, stick 2"x6" on top.

It is pretty inexpensive - I think I spent about $75 for mine, and easy to reconfigure or move.

If you run VSTs you can get the Cakewalk Sonitus:fx Multiband Compressor for $79. I use it quite a bit and I'm happy with it. However, I don't have any experience with other multiband compressors.

Re: Trap Question

Do all the corners have to be 8' tall traps or can they be 4' tall and hung half way between the floor and cieling? More is better. A 4' is better than nothing. An 8' is better than 4'. What size trap do you hang on the door? I was thinking of 4' since 703 comes in that sieze or I could make a 6' t...

I've seen pictures of this same technique being done on an acoustic guitar to illustrate the different resonant modes.

Why does he need a copy to see if it up to spec? Have him sit down in the studio and listen to it. If he really wants a disc, add an annoying beep every 15 seconds.
