Beyer m88 on kick / pop filter

I recently picked up the m88 wanting to try on kick, but then became leery after reading about possible damage to the capsule. So, I ordered the Beyer ps88 pop shield and it only covers the top half of the capsule. I realized the shape by looking at the picture, and while it is more dense than a reg...

Re: Weathervane overhead

Luckily this year is almost over..... I did just order a MCU pro from Alto sound / b stock. Christmas present to me / from me. The Coles will just have to wait until I learn Reaper and get the hell out of Ableton 5! One day I will actually pay those fine developers their $60.. Thanks for all the inp...

Re: Weathervane overhead

Brian McTear was asked about hard panning, and he said that he only goes out to like 40% each side. It is more about the center mic holding the kick and snare in the middle, while the left and right are added in for some detail.

Re: Weathervane overhead

I have been weening myself off of gearslutz, and I came here to find a safe and sane place. So, you guys really think I should get a pair of Coles?? I mean, your probably right, and I can sort of afford them if I just remortgage, or stop paying some of my other bullshit bills. Who needs insurances i...

Re: Weathervane overhead

Awesome! I missed this one.
So, they are ALL focusing on the snare.
Well, I guess that closes this chapter.

I wonder if I really “need” a Coles? Hmmmm.. lol

Re: Weathervane overhead

From what I understand, the mics form a equidistant triangle based off the center mic, which is the first one placed. The heights are not the same. The string from the kick center, up to the center mic, back down to snare center establishes the height and arc placement of the three overheads, and th...

Re: Weathervane overhead

My biggest stumbling block is being my own engineer / rarely recording other drummers.
Set up mics, record 60 seconds, go to control room, listen, adjust. Repeat until any creative idea I may have had dissolves into a whisp of smoke!

Re: Weathervane overhead

Here is the link to the creative sound lab video: https://youtu.be/K9NjecFFoIQ From studying this, it looks like the left overhead is pointed more at the snare? At the end of the day, I know the correct answer is to use my ears, where ever it sounds best. I believe the technique is to place the cent...

Re: Weathervane overhead

Yes, that’s the one. Also, it was explained on the Creative sound lab series on you
tube. I just can’t see where that left overhead mic is actually pointing at.

Weathervane overhead

I have set this up recently and have really been impressed with the results. Ribbon centered between kick and snare, roughly over ride cymbal, pointed at snare. Right sdc pointed down at snare. My question is where the the left / over shoulder should be looking at? The floor Tom, ride, or snare? Tha...

Re: 8 track cartridge transfer

HA!! I knew if I held out on the price, it would be pure mayhem! Excellent... But seriously folks, take my 8 track, please.. Ok, it was like $28.00 which included s/h and 24 .wav files on a CD-R. Quick turn around, very friendly and communicative. Seems like decent folk down at KatiesTrackShack in T...

Re: 8 track cartridge transfer

I've contacted Katestrackshack. Waiting on a reply. I have looked into buying a machine, but this the only time I see using it, so figured I should out source it. Thanks for the input

Re: Tascam 22-2

Searching around, I see on you tube the idea of using a spare take up reel, putting it on the spindle, and trying to gently bend it back.. I'm going use that as a last resort though. Would like to have it attended to professionally, and have it serviced at the same time..
