Referring to the GAP Pre 573, there may be an issue with running more than one unit in a Lindell 506 500 series rack. There was a recent thread on Gearslutz referring to the start-up current draw of the Pre 573 causing issues with the Lindell 506's switching power supply. The API racks with their li...

I certainly understand why you'd ship the card to the Westside. People living in other places cannot fathom how difficult freeway driving can be here in LA. Traffic is bad even on weekends. Thanks for understanding. We should be grateful to have ONE authorized AVID repair location available in LA. ...

You can try here: http://www.advancedmusical.com/ Not far south from SFV, in West LA. Yep thanks. I know they're the only Avid approved repair shop ... kinda crazy that there's only ONE here in LA. I might end up shipping my card to them rather than head over the hill. And folks don't make fun unle...

I have one of the first 2-channel Auteurs. Mine is OK until you crank the gain up and then you get hiss, which makes it difficult to use with dynamic mics or ribbons. Your mic pot taper issue with the 500-series might require a pot replacement to repair.

Wow. Way cool. The more I listened, the more I liked it. Not about perfection, just an assemble of simple parts and retro-y riffs that work. Reading the lyrics of the tunes is what sold me. I like music that is different, and this is. I'd like to read more about your recording & mixing techniques.

i see... any cheap recommendations? :) Recommendations for mixdown options? Sure. Any desktop or laptop computer and an audio recording interface with at least 4 ins and outs so you can transfer all the 244 tracks to the computer at once, then mix them in the computer with DAW (digital audio workst...

by the way #2, another noob question: is there a way to mix tracks after they've been recorded without an external device? i don't mean any fancy effects or anything. for example lets say there's a track that at a certain point i would love the volume to lower down a bit or switch it to the right c...

Palomino Record Pressing seems like an affordable solution.

We musicians are just so hard on ourselves. I think kslight and joninc 's suggestions are good, but if you didn't touch the mix and left it alone, it wouldn't be terrible. I think the song and performance is very good. Personally, I'd just turn down the drum overheads some. Maybe compress the vocal ...

I've been in your shoes before. So many people who visit this forum have as well. Fact is, a well-known recordist told me some things a decade ago. Musicians are some of the most shallow, insecure people on earth. Most of them will and have done any number of things to be successful, and loyalty is ...

I emailed them at thekennel@thekennelstudio.com; Jim replied back and confirmed that the Tascam MSR24 1" deck was available.
