Re: What guitar rocks your recording world?

g&l asat classic -> fulldrive fulltone -> 1970's silverface twin. i love the sound of this setup live, i'm still working on recording it where i am happy. i'm getting close with my new oktava ribbon mic though..

g&l guitars rule. they put new fenders to shame.

Re: your favorite Makeout Music

6 hours? Jesus Christ-- isn't Sting the only one who has 8 hour long Tantric sex? Krikey! i just read this on nerve.com the other day: "Sting, the rocker turned pompous Muzak god, famously boasted that he could have tantric sex for seven hours. I can't imagine what would be worse: being trapped und...

Re: Any "affordable" monitors with good low end?

soooo, does anyone have any suggestions for affordable monitors that will give me some sort of reasonable perspective on the lows? "affordable" meaning "under a grand". a pair of used mackie hr824's usually run $800-1000, and they are totally worth it. the low end and detail completely blow away my...

Re: Analog semi-pro going to PC DAW- suggestions?

I just spoke with Rob at Zero Return, and he just got one a while back for their 2" 24track studio - They are TapeOp advertisers, so you can look up their ad and go to the website. Rob is a heck of a friendly cat and would most likely answer any email you send him regarding it all. he seems to be v...

Re: Analog semi-pro going to PC DAW- suggestions?

just to chime in, i've been using a layla 20 with logic audio on win98 for a couple years now, and it's been working great. i record everything 16/44 and it sounds fine to me. i'm sure 24/96 would sound even better. i've actally been thinking of upgrading, i have my eye on the MOTU 24i/o. does anyon...

Re: to rent out a home studio or not?

looking at your gear list, you are going to run into some limitations pretty quick if you try and record rock band. you need to approach it from 2 different views: electronic music studio vs. live band studio. if you get a live band in there, let assume they are 2 guitars, bass, vocals, drums. you a...

Re: Huge, incredible sounding records.

Sweet Tea and Sheryl Crow are huge because of what was put on a tape, not from what was pumped off a tape in the mastering process. both those records are insanely huge, and you can crank them LOUD, try that with any of the new school of mastering stuff. painful. dave speaking of stupid mastering, ...

Re: Miking Brushed Drums (on a budget of course)

i think the c1 as an overhead and an sm57 on the snare will be just fine. or the stereo mic as an overhead. your setup sounds very similar to the Low drummers, and they have an awesome sound. maybe you should try and a find some articles about them, they were in a recent tapeop. are you using the fl...

Re: stapes vs. the ghetto army

i'd love a pair of stapes mics, but i feel like i've been waiting like a year for them to come out. and now they are going to be like $400-500 for a pair - not quite the bargain they used to be. but you do get what you pay for.. and i'm sure that hand-carved solid cherry case with crushed velvet int...
