Re: Monitoring is a mess.

I don't know if the Focal's use a push clip or solder to the woofer, but might be worth opening it up to check and make sure there is not an intermittent connection. might save you a lot of hassle in the long run. Too late, it’s in the shop. But considering powering it down and back on fixed the pr...

Monitoring is a mess.

My monitor controller was distorting out, so I bypassed it and sent it to the manufacturer. Then the woofer on one of my Focals started cutting out. Tweeter only. Restart the speaker, woofer is back (for a while). So that monitor is at a place that can service Focal, with ominous caveats about « par...

Re: I need help High Passing

Sometimes I hi-pass AND lo-pass electric guitars, trying to have it live in just the range it needs. And then I play it back the next day and sometimes it sounds like a jar full of insects. Oops. Hi-passing kick is something I started experimenting with in the last few years, after doing a recording...

Re: Overdrive pedals educate me

A Catalinbred Antichthon, which is insane weird and difficult. I got an amazing sound out of this when I demo'd it, so I bought it immediately. Since then I've not been able to get anything useful out of it. Help me? I don’t think I could use it live, takes too much tweaking. I know antichthon want...

Re: Overdrive pedals educate me

I had Soul Food for a while, but in my setup the mids seemed a little honky and it lost its charm. So now in its place is a Barber Gain Changer, which is great for overdrive and crunch. It’s my basic always-on if I don’t want Fender cleans (mostly from a Fender Showman combo with a Weber 15”). For t...

Re: Alternatives to DAWs?

I still have a valid PT "permanent" license, but I've completely moved to Logic running on a recent mac mini.

It's working for me. Last EP I put together was 100% in Logic.

Re: microphone death

Beyerdynamic m69 went down, repair guy looked at it with a microscope and said a wire inside the capsule was broken, impossible to fix. A used one was cheaper than a new capsule.

EV 767– capsule failed somehow, no mictoscope this time, but again a used one was cheaper than a new capsule.

Re: MD421's right now

I got 2 421’s, which is enough for me. A white one from who knows what era, and one from the 80’s so probably a II. I haven’t actually done a comparison, I usually use the white one.

Re: Latest Gear You've Un-Acquired....

Tascam 234 4-track cassette. It only runs high-speed, and I need to switch between hi and lo.

This week I might offload a Korg PE-1000, a very cool primitive synthesizer.

Got it, it's in decent shape, and every channel seems to work. Totally worth $60

Who has used Ramsa boards?

The Soundcraft powered board that I use for band practice needs work. 2 of the 8 channels are clean, the rest are distorted. And the thing is heavy and has needed repairs every few years, so I'm going to replace it. With a Ramsa 208 that I got super-cheap off e-bay ($25 + $40 shipping. That cheap). ...

Re: Downsizing advice

I’m an amateur messin’ around in the basement. But I did a major downsize once (maybe twice)? There was a relationship where moving might have been in the picture. At the time I had an MCI 618 console that barely fit in my space, you could turn sideways to squeeze by in one side or the other. The 61...

Re: NAC (National Audio Company) no longer making cassette tape (still doing Duplication though)

I still have half a box of blanks c60s from delta media. It has taken 5 years to go through those. And I have two small boxes of fancy TDK smx20’s that I got when they were still cheap. If this turns out not to be a lifetime supply I’ll start recording over the Maxxell and TDK car tapes from the ear...
