Hi everyone, new to the forum!
I'm looking into buying a preamp that works well for recording both a Godin Multiac (just using the direct sound) and a Taylor 714ce. But for different reasons.
For the Godin, I'm looking for new colors. I want to have options for some bite, beef, or low end, as I play aggressive & syncopated riffs. I don't want it to sound like flamenco.
For the Taylor, I'm wanting to get more out of my direct line (Fishman Matrix pickup) as I like to blend it with a mic to create a stereo mix on my tracks.
My power amp has blown, so I'll be getting some near gear, and was hoping to be able to use my sub in my new setup.
At the moment, it's
Audio interface (Which needs to be replaced as not working with Windows 10) ---> Power amp ----> Sub woofer (PSB Image subsonic 6) -------> Tannoy reaveals PASSIVE monitors.
Has anyone seen this brand before? I came across them on instagram and wondered if anyone had any experience with one of their products. it seems reasonably priced for what they're offering.
There are some demos up on youtube as well
Hi gang !
After building a T47 and T12 I thought it would be great to have a U-87 inspired mic in my arsenal.
So here is a video of the complete build.
Comparaison comming soon !
I finally decided to start building a soundproof studio, but I'm not sure what I want. I'm hoping this forum is a good place to get some insight.
I'm an average, self-taught musician. I've never done any "serious" recording on my own, but a band I was in self-produced a CD. So I've had minor experience in a recording atmosphere. Mostly in my past, I've only hit the record button on a tape deck and recorded myself.
So I was so interested in the 1612 Tubes I got to play with...I started a hybrid design. The concept is a vari-mu style compressor using the 1612s as the front end after a Jensen XFMR. I am thinking of then running LA2 style buffer and driver amplifier into a Jensen output XFMR. But the side chain willl be solid state and use either a LOG amp or a THAT audio engine.. Sort of a complex blend of 50's tech with more modern tech...
The panel below is the feature set that I would want...I interested to hear your thoughts or wants for a compressor like this...
Hi folks! New to forum here. Before I begin, please know I've searched forums & threads far and wide on the topic of soundproofing sheds but just had some questions I've never seen fully answered, as well as having bought and read the Gervais build-your-own-studio book.
I've got a 12' x 10' x 10' gable roof wooden shed, elevated a few inches off ground. I'm moving to the location where it's installed, not there currently. I'll outline my basic soundproofing plan before my questions:
A nice flash around Abbey Rd - and apart from the acoustics, a nice look at the Decca Tree - the first time I've heard anyone well known talk about it.
Here's the latest compilation. 38 singers, 5 musicians and the conductor - all recorded at home. Audio wise - eq, and sync only.
It's actually a bit odd - the piece of music has very few words in it, but I picked 1 track as a guide from soprano, alto, tenor and bass, and then had to chop up every persons recording to move their words to consistent places - some were close, many wildly adrift. 38 singers, all aligned. Cubase, for the first time, failed me in doing this automatically - it made a real mess of it, so manual it had to be.
