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...

Before you spend Microphone-Parts money for a MCA SP1 mod, try the simple mod kit for sale on ebay: search for "MCA SP1 ebay mic mod". Invest in a soldering iron & kit and try it. This mod only works on earlier versions with circuit boards with thru-hole parts. The newest MCA SP1's have SMT boards, ...

If you want to hear a good kick mic demo recording, check out TapeOp'er Jesse Gimbel's kick drum mic shootout here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki3UtgNR4C0 . I thought the Sennheiser e602 had a similar amount of treble snap like the 421, but a lot more low end. If you must have a 421, you'll jus...

Tubby Boots "The Emerald Captain" on bandcamp

Debut album from SoCal band Tubby Boots (tubbyboots.bandcamp.com). Extensive use of ribbon mics on drum overheads, guitars and vocals. Most tracks recorded to 2" tape, monitored thru computer and Logic (no console) and mixed ITB. Unique, organic but modern sound.

I understand the DIY aspect of it, but my main issue is sonics. Many people buy old Telex duplicators to run off their cassette copies but many of those are mono and top out at 10k, copies sound bad. Old used double cassette decks used to be plentiful at thrift stores but not anymore. Finding chrome...

Wow, great heads-up, thanks! I read this last night, thinking two things-- "I'll listen to that link tomorrow," and also I thought that you said "room mic on 'drums'." Going back and reading "lead vocals," and listening to some of those tracks, I'm pretty blown-away. I assume that it was a room mik...

This was recorded @ Electrical by Steve Albini. Apparently the Crown PCC160 was used as a room mic on the lead vocals. Worth a listen.
