Re: Binaural Stapes?

You're assuming that the Stapes folks don't have a binaural in the works? I don't know if there is one planned for production, but I've heard Erik raving enough about the one he built (and hmmm...... promised to build one for me :) He said it's one of the best drum mics he's ever used. Those folks a...

Re: cheap small diaphragm condeser ?

I'm not sure when the Stapes will be available commercially, and I really don't know the cost, but I've been using mine since 2001 and I can't live without them. If someone is tracking drums in a smaller room, they are KILLER overheads. If someone wants big guitar tracks with a little room, they are...

Re: Does the music scene suck this bad where you live?

I come from a "sleeper" town which is basically an hour in all directions from all the "cool" scenes in New England and our city has always been looked at/known as a bit of a pit. The 80's were very bad for Worcester, MA, when it developed a bad reputation for bad "dated" metal and cover bands. Rece...

Re: cheap small diaphragm condeser ?

I love the ATM33a. I use a pair of them all the time. Great on Acoustic guitar, guitar amp, toms, snare, overheads. They're less than $150 a piece I think.

Also....STAPES! I've said it a million times. These are my favorite mics for so many things!

Re: what is similar to the u87?

4033: Cheap condenser worth owning. put it where you wouldnt put your real mics. The 57 of condensers in my opinion. dont expect a lot, just expect:"works." I feel that way about the KSM32 (I know I'm getting off-topic) I think the KSM32 is a very good "use it anywhere and you won't be unhappy" mic...

Re: what is similar to the u87?

I just did a shootout last week where I put up a bunch of mics on a female vocal to see which one was her mic: Neumann 147, Neumann U87, that very Geffell you linked to, AT 4033 and something else I'm forgetting. They were all going straight into an SSL on adjacent channels. The U87 won hands down. ...

Re: behringer headphone amp

We encorporate one in our headphone system and it's been great so far. It's easy enough to give any one of the four phones "more me" with the aux inputs, and it sounds decent as well. We also use a series of old Alesis MicroCue Amps, and a Rolls as well as a Samson, all patchable from our patch bay....

old snare trick really works!

Years ago I tried the old trick of sending your snare track out through a speaker, placed on top of a snare drum and remiking the sound to blend with your taped snare sound. Then I got better at recording drums and didn't need to do such things... Until last week where I had a good drum sound going ...

Re: Real Tape or Fake (FATSO)?

"Good enough" is definitely a subjective term. I guess that was a bad way to put it. I'm not comparing analog to FATSO to McDSP to Cranesong Trakker, side by side by side.... I will say that a little bit of McDSP Analog Channel has gone a long way in giving me a bit of the "mush" factor that my 001 ...

Re: Real Tape or Fake (FATSO)?

you know.... I was JUST thinking a similar thing on the way home from the studio not fifteen minutes ago. I have been using PT with the McDSP Analog Channel plug-in to give me some tape saturation effects lately. I like what it does, and I've been preferring it to bus compression lately. I just wond...

Re: Low-pass filters

look for a couple of used Electrix Filter Queens. A good parametric is the best way to go, but if you just need a good sounding LPF, the Filter Queen and the Filter Factory are quite nice. I also like the moogerfooger LPF as well. I use any one of these three to add some "boom" to kick drum tracks s...

Re: What is your favorite $500 or less Microphone??

Stapes Omnis ( www.stapesaudio.com ) These mics are fantastic on everything. They're my first choice for drum overheads. I love them as "backup vocal" mics, to get the BVs to sound a little "behind" the lead vocal (I use omni mics for that effect a lot.) They sound awesome on guitar amps. Put them ...

Re: tc electronics finalizer plus

I've used one since they came out back in the late 90s. I like the box, but over the years, I've learned that the best way to use it is to not use it much. It has decent A/D converters to get you to your DAT or DAW. There is a parametric EQ, multiband compressor, limiter and a few other goodies. It'...
