Trust me, skip the '97 Chevy Cavalier preset; it's not worth it.
LOL you would want to mimic a car with a carburetor as that is the car equivalent of tubes.

But the original question was about getting the same sound in an anechoic chamber with an omni mic no matter what distance the mic was from the source. Changing the volume of the amp would change the source sound and make the (hypothetical) test invalid. Thank you, you are correct, although I think...

So I picked one up today. The filter is definitely worth $60. Also, while you won't be using the synth in a ton of songs (it plays like a stylaphone) it is still a fun toy to keep you busy and filter things through.

All of this is so subjective that it's kind of pointless. There are so many variations on what a 'good bass sound' is that once you multiply that times how many different sounds could possibly be coming out of a bass cabinet and what mic(s) you use, there is no way for there to be a rule of thumb a...

Do you have a manual for the tape machine? In the past I have used sync to make a 707 follow a computer. Basically the sync out on the 707 is a bunch of high pitched noise that I recorded on a track on my daw. Then when you play that track back into the sync in of the 707 it uses it to follow along ...

While I've never pulled any recording studio work days that long I can see how it would happen. I regularly work 10 hours straight and have bands tell me "do you need a bathroom break or something? you havent left the control room all day" then I realize I haven't and try to get some fresh air. I tr...

His exact words were "Remember that bass waveforms need more room to fully develop compared to midrang-y guitar, so place the mic ten to 12 inches from the speaker to let the sound stretch out." Regardless of theory it doesn't take an expert to hear the difference from moving a mic a half an inch bu...

Bass micing and wave length.

So I was just reading an eq article were the author states "now remember to move the mic off the bass amp as bass waves take longer to develop then guitar waves" or something like that. I tried searching the tomb and didn't find anything but it would seem to me that the only thing moving the mic bac...

Finally picked up a new headphone monitoring system in the form of a Furman HDS-6 and two Hr-6's. Haven't got it completly set up yet but a quick test leads me to believe that I will easily be able to deafen all the drummers who want there headphones cranked up to unbearable levels even with isolati...

I think its funny how some people think its either one way or the other. I have clients that go straight to tape,or sometimes straight to computer and I do absolutely no editing because that's what the style and genre they fall in to calls for or what they want. I also do artist (newer metal stuff) ...

I love the halftone/ben day dots. Its a cool website. I don't know if it fits the actual vibe and look of your studio but I think its a good looking website none the less.
