Re: Compact recording/preamp interface that doesn't require a computer hooked up to run?

OP wants something cheap headphone out with volume control easily accessible to purchase maybe 48v power (if the mics they want to use require it) and then the mysterious part "not admittedly for recording" what exactly do you need to do ? My understanding is that the thread starter wants a small m...

Re: Show Us Your Junk - cool gear porn YouTube Channel

Wow. I appreciate the responses to my post. I have seen a few of the videos and I agree that they are interesting and informative, and the focus in the videos are not completely on Earthquaker products, which have a good reputation. I do know of one engineer/producer in my area who received a few Ea...

Re: Reusing Tape

Unless you are dead set on mixing direct from the R8, if your audio interface can record 8 ins or more, then consider tracking to the R8 then transfer the tracks all at once to the computer to mix. You can then reuse your tape for another project. You should be able to reuse the analog tape many tim...

Re: Compact recording/preamp interface that doesn't require a computer hooked up to run?

Couldn’t you just use a little mixer like a Behringer XENYX 1002? I would think the Behringer XENYX 802 mixer would be even smaller, less expensive & work well, although not sure if it supplies a real +48v phantom power. BTW. this thread starter posted the same question on Gearslutz, he/she should ...

Don't get too into those vids. They're just Earthquaker promo commercials. The participants probably had some incentives to do them.

Re: The drum "Wurst Mic" technique - Holy shit!

Drummer Atma Anur used the same exact 1-mic placement for recording his drums when we both played in DH Peligro's solo band project in the late 1990's and I recorded a practice with my Tascam 4-track to learn the songs. I used a SM57 mic, it captured the entire kit well.

Re: Sytek no longer making the MPX 4aii?

In my mobile rig I have one with all stock preamps, which I prefer, but I recently bought one with J-Fet TL072's in preamps #3 & 4 that I need to try out on a session.

Re: Sytek no longer making the MPX 4aii?

The MPX4A & ii was manufactured in 4 versions: 4 ch of stock pres, 4 ch with Burr Brown (BB) IC's, 2 ch with stock and 2 with BB IC's in preamps 3 & 4 and one with 2 stock channels and 2 with J-Fet IC's in preamps 3 and 4. The BB and J-Fet IC's are less detailed and somewhat slower/rounder sounding ...

Re: Sytek no longer making the MPX 4aii?

The most amazing thing about these units is how quiet they are at high gain. The fact that Stoica refuses to provide schematics for the MPX4Aii is a bit problematic. I once bought one used with a non-working channel. I found a good repair location that found the issue and repaired it for a decent pr...

Re: Prodipe D12 copy???

Prodipe has no sales presence in the US. Their focus is in Europe. Any idea about what people are saying about them? Prodipe's initial microphone offering (TT1) received generally good reviews, especially at the price point. A decent review here: https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/prodipe-tt1 The...

I went to buy a couple of reels for my 388. Splicit's website had trouble processing my PayPal payment online via my smartphone so I didn't buy. I'm not desperate for tape, I have Quantegy 457 & 407 and RMGI LPR-35 stockpiled that I need to use.

I have 388 for some time and love it, but I never did overdubs on it, the manual is a bit confusing and whatever I try doesn't work so I would appreciate some help... So, let's say I have something recorded on track 1 and I want to overdub and record something else on top. What's the procedure? Tha...

...If you must have a 421, you'll just have to wait and get one. The current mkII models don't have a transformer, which is probably the main reason for the change in sound between original and new. People know what the older 421's are worth, you'll have to pay a premium to get one. Main problem wi...
