Re: Upping my percussion recording skills

I'd probably go with the less lively recording space. As for mics, audition what you have, and pick what makes the shaker sit well in the mix.

A recent post talked about replacing knobs on a Pre-Amp and it got me thinking of a silly little question.

Who makes the prettiest out board gear?

What makes your rack look stellar?
Probably my fave are ones with large rotary knobs.

Re: Mixer like this?

So I am trying to find a mixer or summing box that can do a couple things that I consider straight forward, but I have not been able to find? Basically I just want a high density line mixer. Like 16 or 24 inputs in one or two rack spaces. I do need direct outs. I do want a bit of gain, and pan/bala...

Re: unhyped kick drum mic

I think about 4-5 of my mics make mechanical bump/scratch noises when subjected to kick drum that they don't make in other positions. They sound like a mic does when it's bumped just from the low frequency SPL of the drum. it's true. a bass drum needs a mic that can handle very high SPL, especially...

Re: Upping my vocal recording skills

To the OP and anyone not 100% sure about recording vocals, the answer is ...anywhere, and any mic. In other words, no need for a special space unless some isolation is desired from a loud band. As for mics, if you have two or three, just have the singer test them. One might be a tad better. As for s...

Re: How long does it take you to mix?

Quick and short here as I just record my own stuff. Mostly the concern is to make sure the vocals are up enough in the mix.

Re: Cheap marshall clone

OK, I had 20 minutes to record a bit. I had done some vocals earlier, so used the mic sitting in the middle of the room. As a result, the amp is super compressed because it was hitting a Warm WA2A really hard on the way in. https://soundcloud.com/ericagner13/rawk I'm a bass player, not a guitar pla...
