    Does a recording studio require a Mixer ?

    I can't say it's all perfect but the QCon Pro X I have works ok.. where it fails is when you move too many faders at once.. (a midi limitation I think) But other than that.. it's nice.

    Live Streaming And Pre-Recording Events.

    The live scene is kind of another world. Musicians crave for it and when they come close (specially amateurs) they are very sensitive. I did many multi-bands shows over the years and I've seen many mini wars for stage space, baby tears when switching stage setups (removing and installing drums...

    Does a recording studio require a Mixer ?

    I did it in 2011, I had a soundcraft 32ch ;) I focused on getting highend preamps instead.. Big difference.. ! To compensate I bought a controler.. at least I have a few faders to do automation..

    Best microphone for classical music video

    Sorry but the SM57 is not a condenser but a dynamic mic.. completly different technologie. With a good preamp it is true that it is a good mic for a lot of applications, specially if the room isn't treated and if the source can be very close to it. An alternative would be the SM 58 designed as...

    Top Video Myths For Musicians

    I'm totally with you Paul. Althought I must admit there is a strong trend of glorified lowres going on for a few years. I've invited friends to record at my studio and they keep doing the cellphone thing anyway (Lower angles, backlit, noisy roomy sound, bad instrument vs voice balance...

    Best microphone for classical music video

    Doing lives to youtube require a good internet connection.. You should cover that too. Easy setup, 2 mics ? I'm my mind, it would be minimum 3 mics, stereo recording of the piano and mono recording of the vocal. What you want is the piano in stereo and the voice in the middle to make some...

    8 inputs / mic lines. What mics would you choose?

    I don't know about the GAP but warm offering seems quite nice. To speak by experience, I made a Micparts S87 and couldn't let it go... I'm intrigued by the Royer R10.. I may get to try one some day. I'm guessing it would good on brass, strings and distorted guitar..

    8 inputs / mic lines. What mics would you choose?

    I'm not sure I follow, you record on a 8 track tape and you already have 7 mics. You want the last one mic to add or 8 more to have alternatives ? If it's only one more, I'd say, you need a good vocal mic. An LCD that can work with most voices. Usually a U87, a clone or one inspired on it is...

    Help with 1st time studio setup

    Welcome to RO !! For simplicity purpose, I agree a standalone recorder might be the best solution.. After that you can take memory card and transfer the recordings to a computer for archiving and/or mixing.. Zoom Makes many convenient recorders for many budget sizes.. easy to use.

    Warm Audio WA-67 R2 opinions?

    Just saw some C414 xls at 1144$ and 1103$ CAD on ebay from Japan.. Clones ??

    Warm Audio WA-67 R2 opinions?

    I did build those 3 mics, T47, T12 and S87. I think they kind of represent, as an inspiration, what people think of the U47, C12 and U87. The T47 is dark sounding with nice lowend but take EQ very well. The T12 has a big bump in the HF, not too hyped but obviously there. The S87, for me sits in...

    Warm Audio WA-67 R2 opinions?

    I'm checking Cathedral Pipes mics, they seems all inspired from the U47 except for the ribbon.. Honestly, I would be so happy to own one, but I'm looking for a more modern sound, something in the trend of the U87 up front with sweet HF.. . . The Peluso seems like a blast in quality but they are...

    Warm Audio WA-67 R2 opinions?

    I bought a WA-47jr and tought it sounded quiet nice and in ballpark of the 47 style mics. I don't think anyone will pretend warm-audio is the perfect company and maker of the most accurate clones. But they make some usable gear for sure.. Here's a video where I compare 2 U47 style mics

    Warm Audio WA-67 R2 opinions?

    I saw a few videos talking about the ma-200 sounding close to the u67. It's funny to read all the opinions... I think we human like to have point of reference for everything. That's why we hear 'sounds like' so much. Please Mojave, send me one !! Hey hey.. ;) I think more and more about the...

    Warm Audio WA-67 R2 opinions?

    Yes the MA-200 seems to be very interesting. Altought it is 1549$ CAD vs the WA-67 at 1189$CAD. It's a bit hard to find what's inside, but I found a video showing it . Their design seems to be bare minimal which is kind of surprising and not a bad thing if you think of it. It makes less parts...

    Warm Audio WA-67 R2 opinions?

    I agree I wasn't impressed.. some opened mics had white silicone and looked worst. I would imagine that had to cut corners to keep the cost low.. The question here is, is it worth it. Worth buying it to complete my mic collection. I have 2 KSM44, KSM32, micparts T47, T12 and S87. Warm audio...
