My voiceover client bought one for me in exchange for studio time. I've used it on one session, first for isolating scratch vocals during initial drum/bass tracking. Since my control room and tracking room are one in the same, it did surprisingly well. In some spots, if I soloed and compressed some ...

Yeah, it's insane! I'm thinking about trying to use some clamps to mount the rack toms to cymbal stands instead... we'll see. I have a lot of messing around to do with the setup.

Don't be afraid to try coated heads. That may tame those beasts a little bit. I'm a fan of the G2 coated and I used them for a long time, but I use the coated Aquarian Doulble Thins now with Evans Resonance bottoms. I don't have ginormous drums, but they work nice. I put coated heads on my other ro...

Thanks guys. I am pretty intimidated by these toms... honestly. They are monsters. Going to buy new heads this weekend and should be able to get them to really sing. The original rogers reso heads on the rack toms sound like paper. Some nice G1s with G2s on top should smooth them out a bit. I've dec...

Score of the month

So some of you may remember I sent my vintage Rogers drum kit in to get the edges re-cut and to have the wraps removed, much to the disappointment of many vintage drum purists here. Well, I am now paying for my indiscretion, as the guy who's working on them is taking his sweet time. We originally ag...

Guitar and synth sounds are really cool, so are your vocals. Here are some (to me) major problems: Vocal too low in general, especially when it first comes in (i realize this is an effect, but still) Can you change that drumbeat up... like, edit it.. its really off. The second snare hit (the "flam"...

Um... my collection is not nearly as cool as half of these, but I just took a photo for insurance purposes, so what the hell... missing from the photo are my two TOMB Ribbon mics. Here goes:

I have two 12AY7s and up until today, they have not had any hum or static. Today though, both of them had very prominent hum and static. They are run balanced to my patchbay, then to my 828mkii and this has just started. Strange... am I to understand that the choice of tubes can cause this? Maybe I ...

Yes, I was feeling this today. I have recently opened my home studio to outside business and had my first band come in today. I felt like I had more of a feel for how and where a mic should be placed to get a certain sound moreso than any recording I've been a part of so far. It was really rewarding...

I have to agree with the slow opening, but only because there's so much to review here. I'm in the process of realizing most of my stuff ends nicely (massive build up) which does NOT translate to making an impression on myspace. So the slow opening would be awesome on a famous and well-listened to ...

The band recorded today and I had a chance to experience the majestic wonder that is a Behringer amp. Actually, the speakers sound good, I can tell they are nice speakers. It's the fucking digital modeling processor that sounds shitty. He had a super heavy thick sound coming out of it, but it had th...
