The 2021 Let It Be Edition - Superb mixed and mastered

Produced by Giles Martin - the son of the famous George Martin - the 2021 Let It Be is superb! 

Listened to it tonight, and as a true Beatles fan, I really enjoyed it, just like Abbey Road a while ago.

On this album it is obvious, how limited they where technically back then. You can hear the freshness on this one, as well as all the details.

Capstan size

I have a large number of reel-to-reel tapes left by my father- in-law. He recorded them at 1 7/8 (i think that's correct, lowest speed possible). Unfortunately, my tape deck, pioneer rt-909, has only 9.5 as the lowest speed. Is it possible to change the capstan (provided i could find one) to be able to play these tapes?

New monitor controller, an overview of the PreSonus Monitor Station V2.

I just bought a new monitor controller as my old became bad in time. I had a cheap ESI passive controller. Now I bought the PreSonus Monitor Station V2.

It has two sets of TSR stereo inputs, One S/P Dif coaxial input and aux Unbalanced RCA/ 1/8 inch stereo input. You can connect three sets of monitors and four headphones. The monitor outs have adjusments pots, so you can equal the volume of each set of speaker to each other.

On the headphone side you can choose either the main source or selectable cue source. Volume is adjustable per headphone out.

Xpand 2 for Mac. Logic Pro (no sound)

Hey music people. I have Xpand 2 for my Mac. 

Here are the specs.  

Mojave.  i7. 16 gig ram

Xpand is 64 bit. 

Here's the problem-- Thank you so much for some help!

When I go to play the keyboard there's no sound. Theres no activity on my meter in Logic Pro X either. When I play my other sounds in Logic Pro they work fine. (the meter lights up green) Also other sounds like EZdrummer they will work. Just not Xpand. 

I heard you have to have Catalina OS?

what's the deal?

Thank you so much!

 

EQ tube mic

I'm in the process of searching for a workhorse, multipattern tube mic to fill a sonic hole in my mic cabinet. The "hole" is in the low mids to mostly quality low end. In my search I've been torn between the classic 251, 67 and 47 sound characteristics. The uses will be the full range of male/female vocals, acoustic instruments and room mic. Not asking much right?

How to add drum beats to Audacity?

I'm a professional https://sikksounds… drum beat maker and I use Audacity to record my guitar compositions. I'd like to add drums to the mix for some very simple demos. I'm not sure how I'd go about doing this. Other software packages (GarageBand, Pro Tools, etc.) might be better for this, but every time I look at something else, the notion of learning how to use it overwhelms me.
