Re: RC-505 Mk2 review

Did you update the software? My MK2 seems quite stable, so perhaps it isn't a problem anymore. There have been a couple of updates since the device was first released, so I suspect Roland is on top of it.

Re: Lavs for no shirt - weightloss tv show

Another DPA to consider is the tiny 4097 "shotgun," which is a dream to conceal on set. Fabulous DPA sound, smooth transition to off-axis. Not super expensive, either. Not sure if it meets your needs, but it can be very, very useful.

Re: Article idea: where's the money?

Back in 2006 I looked into this in a bit of detail. At the time, the entire North American music industry (recording, performance, online, ringtones, games) earned about $12 billion annually. The piano teaching "industry," on the other hand, earned closer to $15 billion (in North America),...

Re: Article idea: where's the money?

All fair observations, but that's only the "music performance" side of things. Historically, that's not where the money has been, except for a lucky few. And recording is the moody teenager in this scenario. What about music education (all angles), or the music products industry? Teaching ...

Article idea: where's the money?

Looking at a few topics lately, such as "Is there really any point making music to sell anymore," got me thinking about an old issue of Mix magazine that I dig through every few years. In May 2006, the cover/feature was "Where's The Money." The times have changed (more mobile pho...

Re: How to record bicycle rides with minimum wind noise?

After some experiments, I've found decent results with a pair of tiny Omni mics inside a time trial helmet (with visor). These are specifically made to get through the air a cleanly as possible (with matching skin suit, aero bike etc). Placement of the mics out of any turbulence is critical, as is t...

Re: Demos, live recordings, video. 8-12 multitracks. Preferably battery powered. Cheap!

I picked up a Zoom H8 a few weeks ago, and it's great. Good preamps, works as a 12-in/2-out USB interface, great battery life. The Zoom mic capsules are good for the price, and the included XY module has a 1/8 stereo input, so 8-channel recording out of the box. Two of the XLRs are combi jacks, so y...

Re: Somewhat Odd Descriptions/names

Do you have to call them anything at all? Perhaps just show the shapes.

Plus that's good for users in all languages, no translation needed!

Re: How to record bicycle rides with minimum wind noise?

Hey Dan, thank you for this input, I'll look into it. Since I was planning to buy the Roland CS 10EM anyway do you think I could do the same with these mics? Also, do you know if it's possible to connect these 3.5mm stereo mics into the Tascam dr-40 that has two mono xlr-1/4 inputs? I would need to...

Re: stereo recording live performance techniques

Just a thought: if Ambisonic is of interest, you could look at the Zoom H3-VR recorder. Bass frequencies shouldn't matter much in your situation, so you might like the results. And they're certainly affordable at the moment, at around $250 USD. Then import the files to your platform of choice and en...

Re: Yoshimi V 2.0 is here :)

Looks good on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (w/ Ubuntu Studio pkg) using Opera or Firefox. Can't wait to dig in to 2.0! One problem I've had with Yoshimi is that it displays as a tiny little window on my laptop screen (Lenovo P52s, 15" 4k screen). Readable with a magnifying glass, but less than ideal ;) I b...

Re: LDCs or SDCs for classical/choral works

Any particular reason it has to be those mics? Have a think about two Line Audio CM4s in DIN or NOS configuration, flanked by two Line Audio OM1s. Spacing between the OM1s is 66cm. Blend to taste... I completely agree with Mike: excellent mics, and they are very unlikely to be the downfall of your ...
