Re: Mic Angle

As with most things, the relationship between a performer and the sound guy can be hugely influenced by how you open that relationship... But turning up early, getting your introductions and requirements in early, asking their advice before pitching your suggestions, accepting your place on the run...

Re: Mic Angle

The question's about the mic angle. If you'd set it up, would you have done it that way? I presume the dulcimer was miked from below the soundboard or with a contact mic. In which case the vocal mic was presumable angled that way to minimise unwanted pickup of the dulcimer which might otherwise hav...

Mic Angle

What do you think of the mic angle on this one, considering that all of his attention had to be directed downward, toward the stringboard? Mr McCutcheon doing 'Step By Step', a Pete Seeger tune I think, on hammered dulcimer. You could never play this one if you were hammered yourself. But that's not...

Re: It's Come To Body Parts

I keep the claws tightly trimmed but now and again get little splits that hamper f/picking. I've tried all kinds of glues and nail hardener/repair potions but I've not found one that works. Get thee to a beautician. In fact, you might as well get something fabulous in scarlet acrylic while you're t...

Re: It's Come To Body Parts

Gee - a new experience! Worth it, if I can play with a false nail. Worth a try.

It's Come To Body Parts

A broken fingernail that I want to keep in action for a while instead of just trimming it off and waiting for it to grow back. Can I make it work? Nail hardener? Super glue? Prayer?

Re: The one box solution.

So, that link above, the one of Georgia on Jools - she's playing what? Synth drums? I thought she was going to chuck the drumsticks away at some point and do a keyboard part, but no.

Well, that's the beauty, right there. Is vocoder a synth? (I thought it was an effect.)

Re: Too much reverb??????..............

What's to become of us, if we had once liked a song, but, after the love has gone, what do we do? fortunately there are other versions of the song, which renew the feelings for it. If only life in general were so simple :-) There’s about four songs hiding in your post. :D Exaggerator! "What's ...

Re: The one box solution.

None of which I've listened to, aside from Mr Wonder. Okay, this is great - thanks, all. The best way to start is to listen.

Re: Save Christmas (well, a Christmas song at least)

Hi JonOS To my ears there seems to be some resonance in the vocal obscuring the diction. The vocal’s a bit nasally and harsh sounding. Even then, I think that's just how she sings, too. She doesn't belt it out, and that's fine with me for a Christmas song this year. I don't mind that it keeps me tr...

Re: The one box solution.

Okay, a question for the lore keepers amongst you. Keep in mind I'm new to synths and that's one reason I'm asking. Can you recall a singer who accompanied themself on a syth? And was it a sort of one-off?
