How do you have the panning on the subgroups set?

Is there a mono switch on the master section?

In my experience, there are a handful of things that go wrong. Some are easier and less expensive to detect and/or fix. Also, without knowing a lot more details about what you're experiencing, it could just as easily be something that's broken or improperly connected, instead of the power system. Fi...

I've probably listened to the Ace Of spades or Overkill albums a couple times a week, for the last 25+ years.

He'll be missed.

First Philthy, now Lemmy. How is Eddie these days?

Take a careful look at the features on any console you're considering. Then take a careful look at the condition that the individual specimen you're considering is in. The Yamaha PM-1000 has a particular sound, that I like. It's workflow is extremely strained . Only 2 auxes, always prefader. 4 subgr...

I've used a couple of different sets of consumer-targeted Tannoy DC's as studio monitors. Granted, they're not so different from Tannoy's pro speakers (I think the main difference is that the consumer ones get a nice wood veneer, while the studio ones get the gray epoxy paint). They're also priced r...

If it's the connector I'm thinking of, you're looking for a "quick connect" (AKA "QC") terminal, or "spade lug." If your preamp has that captive thumbnut, you'll probably need a forked one, like this, because you won't be able to get a ring over it: http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Panduit/P10-10...

Is it the bow noise that's getting you?

Try a lowpass filter or de-esser.


Is it the lonely isolation of the track?

Maybe some flattering reverb or chorus.


Maybe all of the above.

You might want to consider making the relationship a little more formal, too. Who will sign the lease? What happens if one side or the other wants out? There are a couple of obvious arrangements, and about a zillion other ways to structure things. The terms would include who insures what. It could b...

This definitely seems like it's on the right track. Disclaimer: I'm very technologically challenged - it's safe to assume that I know absolutely nothing about electronics. Can you control plugin parameters in Pro Tools with MIDI controllers? And is that how this would interface, or would it be via ...

If you turn the regen all the way up, it should run away at almost any speed. You say you reloaded it with "blank" 8-track tape? If your blank tape was like the stuff I tried, it doesn't work very well. I'd have to check to be sure, but the "blank" 8 tracks I found had a greyish tape inside, while t...
