Re: Identifying mic technique?

What does mid-side do that makes it worth setting up? 1. Guaranteed mono compatibility Ok, this alone has convinced me to give it another go. I'm really in reductionist mode these days: Fewer tracks, make it work in mono, no doubling unless there is a REALLY good reason to do it. (That means no dou...

Re: Identifying mic technique?

Yup! Cable-management is not just about 'tidiness'... As someone who spent far too long in his career poring over legal contracts I have developed a litigious frame of mind... :) I do wonder what the legal/compensation ramifications would be if a muso/singer tripped over a poorly-laid cable and was...

Re: Identifying mic technique?

I take on-board ORTF, but I was wondering about an M+S pair? any reason why you wouldn’t use that? Lovely sharp stereo imaging... although that can work against you with a small choir and 'distinctive' voices. All coincident arrays tend to sound too sterile and lacks 'spaciousness' as well, which o...

Re: Identifying mic technique?

I’m wondering about what’s happening here, there seems to be a lot of mic's out, on the performers, and two stereo pairs, room mic's, it seems. Those pairs are strange, very closely spaced, mounted at each end of the bar. I’m just interest in this "technique" if it is one, or just the eng...

Re: Best Live Looper

I want the best, most versitile looper pedal for my live-streaming? What should I choose - I 'm wondering if the Headlush is the way to go, or perhaps the Boss RC300. I also want something that's reliable and robust, that's going to last hard use. What do m'learned friends think? I see the standard...

Re: I can't get a straight answer re PREAMPS

Ok, I'll try to keep this as short as possible: My gear is the following: - Sonor Sq1 drumset - A selection of various mics: Audix d2,d4,d6,i5, pair of adx51s Shure: Ksm 137, 141, sm58 Earthworks dm20. - A mixer that I recently ordered is midas m32r live. - I have built a solidly dead drum room, th...

Re: Tascam Tape Issue

Does the capstan turn at all when you press play? If so I'd be looking at replacing belts and rubber idler tyres (if there are any on the 122). If the capstan doesn't turn I'd be checking the power supply to the motor and also that anything that looks for the presence of a cassette is working. Cong...

Re: Analogue console +26 dBu mix out into +19 dBu or +26 dBu converter input?

Hello folks, I'm using a Soundcraft 600 to mix and output final stereo mixes, and this console is capable of +26 dBu at the mix bus output. I have typically been converting final mixes out of the analogue console mix bus to digital via an RME ADI 2-FS, which has an input capability of +19 dBu. Howe...

Re: Combining MIDI from different controllers in a DAW

I'm trying to do something which I thought would be simple, but I'm now wondering if someone on the forum might be able to tell me how to do it quicker than I can figure it out. I'm using a couple of different MIDI controllers with a single VST in Cakewalk; one for notes, and another for expression...

Re: Instruments overlapping

Hey guys, quick question, how much do you let your harmonic instruments overlap in notes? Sometimes I find it hard to make an arrangement sound full and not awkward when instruments play in different registers and don't overlap (like piano at the bottom and guitar at the top). Also, any courses/mat...
