Re: Zoom H6 preamps?

We use one in a rehearsal space we're temporarily renting until I can get the garage studio build-out started. Kick, Snare, mono OH, and Guitar into the Zoom's pres and stereo keys/synths into the 1/8" mini input on the X/Y mic head. This is in a 10x11x9 room with enough treatment to make it dead an...

Re: unhyped kick drum mic

Remember when there would always be a suggestion for an old CAD E100? That's what I still use, though I'm a live guy and pretty much only do jazz these days. Flat down to 10Hz, add your own damn scoop. Weirdly enough the original E100 mics are now selling for real money again on eBay. In my own mic...

Re: dark condensers on the cheap for high SPLs

The X1D is a killer tom mic. SE is insane for discontinuing them. I liked them so much, I bought eight of them. I use them for all kinds of stuff. Anyway, they're not as inexpensive, but the Audio Technica 4047 sounds a lot like the X1D on toms. Makes sense, since they're both kinda based on the FE...

Re: Live Off the Floor in a Small Room

Rad. In the process of designing/building a small studio in a 15x30 garage. Curious if you have any documentation of your build? I've been designing mine for over a year and keep changing things. I like how you kept your height and would like to do the same but I need as much iso as possible being u...

Re: No fancy tube mics - am I missing out?

Find a Groove Tubes MD1A. The more I use mine, the more I love it. $500. Rules. Totally. After wanting one of these for like 18 years, Recycled Brains tipped me off on one going for dirt cheap on Reverb. I'll normally just do all the vocals with a SM7b. But the last record that I tracked out of my ...

Re: Mics - GT MD1a, Sennheiser E602ii

Both mics are in excellent shape. I'm the original owner of the 602; it's in like new shape. I'm ATM25 for life. MD1a was purchased used, cleaned up, and used on many a guitar amp and FOK position since. Both are in great shape functionally and cosmetically and include the expected additional items...

Re: Amek BC2 BCII Buss Assignment Routing

You’ll have to put jumper wires in to replace the cut traces. You can carefully scrape off the solder mask(the green, typically) over the traces to expose the copper to solder to, or put wires from components along the trace( in the case from the switch pins to the next solderable point on the trac...

Gonna snip some wires and see if it sets it to be like the "normal" one with the "ST" button.
Well that didn't work. Noticed while I was snipping away, the mod done to this module called for breaking some of the traces, hence the "scratch marks"

Re: Amek BC2 BCII Buss Assignment Routing

My question is what happens on the non working module? When routed to 1, if you pan hard right, do you get no signal, or does it have no effect? Hopefully you see where I’m leading with this, you need to factor the pan circuit into your thought process Alright. Ran some signal through the weird mod...

Re: Amek BC2 BCII Buss Assignment Routing

Two things. One, you need to trace down what pins the stereo signal is sent to on the working module, so you know where you are missing signal. Secondly, the working module has a pan defeat switch, which the non working module does not. My question is what happens on the non working module? When ro...

Re: Amek BC2 BCII Buss Assignment Routing

That's the thing. They're both identical besides the buss routing, on the board, everywhere. They are both BC1118/4's which are Stereo Input Modules. So the only difference then, is the buttons. I'd try to get new buttons then, and forget about making too much of a headache. Cheers Sorry, I must no...
