Re: ribbon replacement?

There's also Wes Dooley out in CA. I've heard great things about both him and Steve Sank.

Re: rhodes and hum

Just checking....when you put the foil in the case, did you connect the foil to ground too?

It probably won't make a difference, but it's worth a shot....

Re: Stax-era vocal distortion

Z-Vex makes a pedal called the Super Hard-On. It's job is to emulate the distortion on 60's era boards. Kind or like when Jagger would yell into the mic and you hear it break up a little for a second. Might be worth checking out. Well it isn't really a distortion emulator or anything like that. It'...

Re: line level through guitar effects

Either it's a power supply issue with the DD-5 or else there was some damage done by running such a hot signal into where the input preamp/converter circuit must have some kind of thermal failure... Use it until it heats up and goes kaput.

I'm not sure what to tell you about that.

Re: line level through guitar effects

Are you saying the DD-5 doesn't work correctly? Usually, you aren't going to harm the electronics in a pedal by putting too hot a signal into them, you're just going to clip the hell out of it. Then again, the DD-5 is a digital pedal and could possibly have an input section that's more sensitive tha...

Re: Damn loud hi-hats, and that washy cymbol effect.

My first question is: How does it sound in the room? I always find that when I'm tracking a band and the cymbal balance sounds weird, I walk into the live room and sort of cover my ears a little and see what the balance is like in the room. I try to get the mics to pick up what the drums really soun...

Re: New P/T Tremelo Trick

Hey Corin! Yeah, I read in Guitar Player in 1990 (Johnny Marr on the cover) about how that track was made, and while it does sound AC30ish to me as well, there was no mention of Vox... it was either Twins or Super Reverbs. I'll have to dig up that issue, and I'm dumbfounded that you don't own that i...

Re: build spring reverb schematics/plans- wanted

I also have a stereo MicMix MasterRoom reverb and it's a fun box. I think mine sounds like a cheap digital recerb at times (think old Alesis XTc), but it's still a fun box. I prefer the old Furman RV-1 to the MasterRoom though. I also have a cool Orban unit that rocks too. Look into that Paia kit if...

Re: SM 81s on electric guitar

I'm a big fan of SDCs on guitar amps. I like the AudioTechnica ATM33a as well. I find that they're not tinny, but pretty big and in-your-face sounding. My typical amp micing technique, since seeing another engineer doing it a few years back (thanks Chris!) is to use three different mics on one speak...

Re: Simple delay seting question?

I'm not sure the nanoverb is going to cut it, but if you want to try, put it on delay, and set the mix for 100% wet and insert the Nanoverb on the track in question. DO NOT USE it as an Aux send, UNLESS you can kill the dry signal completely. You might really need a regular old digital delay from th...

Re: New P/T Tremelo Trick

Yeah, the Smiths trick is pretty legendary (knowing that they supposedly reamped it through two or four Fender Twins or Supers (I'm fuzzy on that detail) and synched the trems, punched in for ten seconds, until they fell out of sync, and then resynched them...on and on... Years ago, I started doing ...

Re: What fx pedal would you like to see manufactured?

I think Morley used to make a pedal that was a phaser but with the ability to control the phase shift with a continuos controller pedal like a wah. That'd be cool. Yes, Morley made a Phaser and a Flanger that could sweep the phase and flange with the rocker OR control the rate. They were pretty coo...

Re: What fx pedal would you like to see manufactured?

Okay. I think I saw this back in the 70's when E-H had those one-sheets claiming that Hendrix used each one of their boxes (which is true). I've never seen it again and never seen anything like it, but I need a whole bunch of them and have been looking for a long time. This pedal has absolutely no ...
