Marco made me think about mic mods

I've been watching with (originally) sum scepticism on the mic mods but I just watched and listened to the MXL Marco swapped the capsule in, and have started to think a bit. The 47 diaphragm the Chinese are making pops up quite often, and in every case - it seems to get positive comment. Going to the Neumann YouTube videos, I've been looking at how they're made and come to the conclusion that maybe, it doesn't sound good because it's Neumann, or AKG or whoever, but simply because the design is good at being nice to listen to?

More DN27A's in for Modifications...

6 Klark Tecknik DN27A in for work. Its amazing to me the changes over the years. 2 units have input transformers and output transformers. The two will transformers will get a electrolytic cap change and general inspection. Of the four remaining, the most similar two will get Jensen input and output transformers, cap change and inspection. One unit had permanent power cord modification, that is going to get changed back to the original style power connector.
  
  

Help, trying to create a vocal chain in Samplitude prox5

I'm trying to set up a simple vocal chain in samplitude pro x5 using Aux buses but can't quite wrap my head around it. I have made my own templates in the past which typically include some midi drums sent to a drum bus, a couple guitar tracks sent to a guitar bus, bass sent to a bass bus, vocals sent to a vocal bus etc.. These buses, I send to a submix bus which is then sent to my main outs. I use different amp sims and effects as plug-ins which works fine but want to be able to capture the vocal chain straight to a track just so that it's a better track (wave file) to start with..

Why should musicians care about video?

Here is a link to teaser for a mini documentary that I finished for a client (The town where I live and run my business in). I'll share the full mini-doc when it is released Tuesday. There were several audio challenges. The mini-doc gave three musicians employment and my consulting company work. I will be making about 50 mini documentaries this year and the musicians I work with will get a ton of work from it. Companies, governments and non profits all need to tell their stories. Musicians help tell the story.
