Some of the best bass sounds i've ever heard came out of a B15 through a U47 (original) on a 15-inch cab. Oh the sweetness...

yeah that's a weird feature, though not entirely useless. Last week I used 7.3 and someone had made all the track colors really bright and i couldn't figure out how to change it back. started to give me a headache.

Re: Will Linux have to follow suit?

So anyway, ripping on MS (which is cheap, easy and satisfying) aside, all this DRM stuff is more or less predicated on and specified by the DMCA, is it not? Which means that Apple is more or less going to have to do the same thing. Will Linux have to follow suit? If so, the future of computing look...

I downloaded the demo version of the four bundled massey plug-ins (they're free) after reading this thread. They rock. http://messageboard.tapeop.com/viewtopic.php?t=41452&highlight=massey I've just started using waves for a mixing/mastering class and so far so good. I know they annoy some people th...

I still use earthworks TC30k's that I have had for years. I like omni's as OH's. I also like accuracy in my OH's, as I get "flavor" from the room choices I use. I want my OH's to sound like hovering above the kit with my head, and the E'worx do exactly that.... Almost "clinical" in their interpreta...

This year I will finally buy another used AKG 414B/ULS, with a serial number that is close to my current one from, I believe, 1993. I can't wait to have a pair of them. I'm also going to attempt to write off some studio gear this year, as I purchased a Powerbook, a 500GB hard drive, a PCMCIA card, ...

Wow. I didn't think I could hate Microsoft much more than I already do, but this shit really takes the cake. I like the statement about how trying to make digital files uncopyable is like trying to make water not wet. :lol:

joel, is your HD rig an Accel system? No, we got into HD before they debuted accel. Like 6 months later that came out. I dont miss it, if that is what you mean. AN HD3 rig is plenty of power for me.... 128 tracks is just fine for me.... ;) maybe it's just the post-production people that need such a...

I've gotten away with using just one cardioid on both toms, provided that they're close enough together. I've also gotten a decent tom sound with sennheiser 421s pointed slightly off-center, but if you're using one mic for both drums i'd put it right inbetween.
