As a rule, take what you have and make the most of it. But I am also a big proponent of reamping DI bass in general. I feel like a mic'd bass amp sits in a mix better .. this is of course assuming a bass amp that actually has some low end to it... I recently acquired an ampeg 4x10 cab, which weighs ...

Topic: does your tube mic ever overload?
Replies: 10
Views: 3006

I've found that with my favorite tube mics, they often sound a lot better when the singer is back from the mic a few feet... that usually gets the SPL down at the capsule enough to deal with it. Of course it helps if the room sounds really good to do this. If it's too much level, I switch out the mi...

I recently moved into a new studio that has a huge stable of ribbon mics and find I'm just not needing one of my own anymore. Goes for 825 on Mercenary http://mercenary.com/crandtrnaeye.html I'm selling for ...

Audio Accessories 96 point TT Patch Bay

This patchbay is in excellent condition. Only missing the label strips for the front which you'd probably want to print and make yourself anyway. Connects with edac pins into the back which have switchable normals. I don't have the connector ends but you can easily get them by calling redco, or they...

This could be viewed as an experiment / market research of sorts. It certainly poses lots of interesting questions, which is probably at least part of the band's motivation. What do people really think downloaded music is worth when given the chance to decide for themselves? How many people will pay...

I use the yamaha 2200 model. It's the best power amp i've used so far... it gives the speakers some balls and feels like it's really moving some sound... the mids are more focused and it just feels better than the other ones i've tried which include hafler transnova (didn't like it) p5000 (i think?)...
