$200 Audio-Technica tube mic?

soundguy, where did you see this "$200" audio-technica tube mic? The only one low-cost one I can find is the 3060, phantom powered tube mic, lists at $499.

Re: Cassette vs. reel

I agree with super skoda - multitrack cassette recorders are cool for what they do, but the Tascam 388 is the ultimate "portastudio", except it's not so "portable". 7" tape reels don't cost much.

Re: Headphone Amps

The Behringer headphone amp @ $99 is probably all you need, but for only a little more you could have something better. The OZ Audio HR-4 or HR-6 give you lots of level and flexibility. I have a OZ Audio 6 and it's built like a tank, clean power, no distortion. The 6 is pricey ($270-300) but the 4 i...

Re: SHUTUP AHHHHHHHHH

UpsideYoHead couldn't possibly be a reader of the magazine or this message board. His assessment is just plain wrong and meaningless.

Using windows PC as a standalone VST effects host...

Has anyone tried using an older PC (700-1ghz) with an 8 in/8 out digital sound card running VST plugins/effects as a realtime effects module? I read about using the obsolete Gadget Labs Wave Pro 8/24 card, running FXpansions free VST Host software, and new 3rd party WavePro 8/24 ASIO drivers to lowe...

Re: Where to buy -db pads in L.A.?

Kyle,
I've looked all over for the Switchcraft XLR tube (the one with the male on one end and a female on the other) to use for making pads.... can't find them in L.A.. Do you know of an online supplier or a store where I can order 'em?

Re: Compressor...EH Blackfinger

Use what you need to. With tape recorders, some people believe it best to compress the track when you print (record); using it later on the track brings up hiss. I use no hi-end stuff myself, my current fave is a dual and single ART levelar. A friend of mine swears by his Roland compressor/sustainer...

Re: other recording magazines that you guys read?

I only read TapeOP, occasionally Recording magazine. Everything else blows, most of them just sell ads and deceive the buying public with slanted reviews and ad space.

Re: do i need to partition?

If you have a PC laptop, you should be able to repartition the HD without wiping & reinstalling the windows OS by using Partition Magic.

Re: to rent out a home studio or not?

At only 19 you're way ahead of the game. Your rate is dependent on the city you live in. For example, in Los Angeles you'll have a hard time finding a rehearsal studio space for less than $15 per hour that's not totally trashed. Recording studios, even lo-budget at-home Digi 001 hard disk ones, cost...

Re: TapeOpCon03

Now that said, what I find it WAY too funny is that we seem to have dredged up some deep issues in this poster as I dont think we have really implied anything sexual about peanut butter or its uses....dude....you're a freak! Heylow, you said it, not I. bluepxl, you're funny man, but enough's enough.

Re: Mixing down from Tascam 388, etc.

I have a 388. I used it a bunch before getting it serviced/aligned by a pro facility... what a difference it made sonically. You don't need to tweak it when you take it from place to place. Have a pro service it, the alignment will last a while, just use 457 Quantegy tape and keep the transport & he...

No man, I don't think I want an invite. This pnut butter thing doesn't sound very wholesome or family-approved..

Hey guys, I mean it. Lay off the pnut butter crap. You don't want Hillary to pull a EveAnna Manley on all of you!

Re: So anyways...

The last thing a "nice" studio with expensive gear and expensive hourly rates needs is a guy with access to a basement studio with decent gear and a low hourly rate. Whether intended or not, your own studio can probably give a client 75% or more of what the "nice" studio can give them sound-wise for...
