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.

http://www.thekennelstudio.com/ Wharton Tiers is involved with this studio in Brooklyn. Thanks, all. None of those guys have this particular config. Mark and Steve cross reference each other, too! The search goes on. I know there are machines out there! I contacted The Kennel studio in Brooklyn and...

Topic: Condenser With A 388. Would It Make Much Difference?
Replies: 9
Views: 1661

I've always used an external preamp with phantom power when using condensers with the 388. I have some single Audio-Technica phantom power units, I think I'll try them to see what the 388 pre's sound like with condensers. I do know that the 388 pre's are closer to the Tascam mixers of the same vinta...

I messaged Rode through their website a couple weeks ago, and have yet to get a reply about repairs on the mic. im pretty much under the impression they aren't going to help... I've contacted RODE support a couple of times, they've been great. Free fixes (replacement shockmount for my NT1A, exchang...

Hard To Kill Records: If recording bands is new to you, one suggestion: do you have a headphone amp for the musicians' headphones for monitoring? Perhaps you give us some details on the gear you plan to use to record this DIY band project?

I have a couple of blue and black SC-50's. I'd better open them up & get that foam out of them.

If the edge tracks sound not right, it's probably a head wear issue. You might need to relap the record/play head. Contact JRF or IEC or Sprague magnetics. Better yet, take it in for repair & get a true analysis of the problem.

I believe the main difference between the LA-610 and LA-610mkII is that the mkII model has a separate input so you can use the opto compressor separately from the preamp.

You're not going to stop the prices from going up on things that are cool. If they're cool and cheap then they're undervalued. It will correct itself eventually whether you post about it on TOMB or not. Personally I usually refrain from mentioning stuff until I already own as many of them as I'm ev...

More & more cheap outboard hardware is starting to get pricey on the used market... Maybe it's best not to write about them so much. We should develop a code, like, if we say something sounds like dogshite*, we really mean it sounds good; if we say a certain bit of gear is dogshite, it's actually c...

Symetrix 501 & CL-150 are great VCA comps. So is the Ashly SC-50. The original ART PRO VLA is a cool opto comp for the price. The ART dual Levelar a little less so b/c it sounds less hi-fi. More & more cheap outboard hardware is starting to get pricey on the used market (like the 501's @ >$200 used)...
