Re: Dear larry

Dear Nathan,
I forgot we let that go. Yeah, I'm a total fucking jerk now. All my friends have stopped calling or coming by and I hang out with a bunch of angry biker/pirates and we steal candy from small kids while shaming them on social media.

One for FOH and two for me. Then I run two preamps. One set normally and the otherset 10 db lower. It's saved my ass a bunch of times.
It's such a simple trick but so good! I learned it from a FOH/club guy a few years ago, I was like, "Duh!"

Re: No fancy tube mics - am I missing out?

The first tube LDC mic I bought was a Manley Cardioid Reference (not the gold one!). It blew my mind, as mostly I had heard AKG 414s (elsewhere, I hate them) or the Langevin CR3A's that Elliott Smith and I had. It was $1800 I think. But then I got a Soundelux 251 and it was even better on more peopl...

Re: No fancy tube mics - am I missing out?

If it sounds good stop buying gear and just make records. Fuck all these forums and gear marketing. Oops, did I say that?

Re: Best Possible Vocal Recording

Make sure that if the vocal mic is picking up room tones/reflections that it works okay with the vocal and the music. I get a lot of vocals to mix with where I can hear nasty reflections off computer monitors, walls, etc. Learn to hear these sounds and where to place mics so they sound good. Learnin...

Re: #126 - "An Endangered Species?"

If you were repairing studio gear, and had to get a tape deck up and running for a session tomorrow, you would be pretty annoyed if no electronic parts stores were in your area and the only way to get a 50 cent diode was to order it online and pay $20 to get it delivered too late for the start of th...

Re: When you love a LIMITER

iZotope RX. Go in and even out the actual frequencies that get too big, not just the whole hit. Or track initially to tape!
