    Control Room Surrounded by Glass

    Hey guys! I’m putting together my new control room, and I’m a little bit stumped on some of my treatment options. Normally I know where to start putting panels up based on listening position, measuring for first reflections, etc.. but this control room is built in the shape of something like an...

    Waves MS Matrix and breaking out LR info in Cubase

    Indeed. Probably my favorite plugin with M/S mode is the Schepps EQ from Waves, but I'm trying to use the Matrix to experiment with my drum room mics. I found an inconvenient workaround, but I am really blown away by the results. I would love to find a way that doesn't involve adding 5...

    Waves MS Matrix and breaking out LR info in Cubase

    Hey everyone! It's been a few years since I've been an avid forum user, but this place profoundly shaped my life and career when I was a young engineer. I kinda want to start by thanking all of the veteran users (I don't know how many are still here haha), but I do have a question about a...

    Apogee Mini DAC still relevant in 2015?

    "...excellent addition to Pro Tools." Yep, I found that out, considering I run Cubase and I really don't plan on changing. I may acquire Logic and Pro Tools into my system for outside engineers like I did with Ableton, but the more I work with other DAWs, the more I love Cubase's workflow. I've...

    Apogee Mini DAC still relevant in 2015?

    Well, up one level in this forum (Converters and Interfaces) is a thread called "Anyone else less than thrilled about the Apollo 8P?" Or something to that effect. I have a list of issues I had, and from my research it seems I wasn't the only one with those issues.

    Apogee Mini DAC still relevant in 2015?

    You know, I have been looking in that direction and bought an Apollo 8P last week. Suffice it to say that it did not live up to it's hype and price point. Then I ordered a Focusrite Clarett only to find that it is still backordered until September (if even then with their development issues)...

    Anyone else less than thrilled with UA Apollo?

    Well, I'm certainly open to that idea, but the point that so very many people on different systems (and my own) found little to no difference at all just boggles my mind. In my defense, an audio interface is the point where all things meet and disperse again with the most complex sort of...

    Anyone else less than thrilled with UA Apollo?

    Yeah, we matched the inputs going in and even made some very small gain changes in Cubase to match them as close as possible. The big thing is not that it sounded bad at all, but I was rather disappointed to hear a lack of difference for all the extra money it cost of my UR824. The A/B tests...

    Been with A for some time. Evolve A or move to B?

    As of now I've gotten pretty good with using my intuition. I'll play something like Dave Matthews Band if I feel like things are ever a little off and I'll make adjustments to the sub. But that's why I like the idea of the HS10's. It's a really economic take on a fully integrated system how the...

    Been with A for some time. Evolve A or move to B?

    My control room is an askew, but symmetrical hexagon, about 12' x 16' at it's short and long dimensions. It really varies from hardcore metal to acoustic guitars and brushes to student string quartets. But, for the most part, you could narrow it down to metal and medium rock music. I also do...

    Been with A for some time. Evolve A or move to B?

    Are they? Then they are not BM6A's and I'm a little off with my model name. I know they are passive because he told me I would have to buy an amp because he was keeping his. Either way, thanks for the input!

    Been with A for some time. Evolve A or move to B?

    Hey guys! I'm coming to a point where I'm starting to feel like I should step up my mixing toolbox. I've had the Yamaha HS-50's for about eight years now. Since the beginning I have utilized a home theater sub woofer with them (don't flame, I was young and as I gained experience I used it almost...

    My new pride and joy...

    Well, I just found a bad problem.. The right tension arm seems to be shaving off mils of my tape whenever I FF or RW. Also, the safety switch doesn't always engage, which isn't a big deal as long as I keep an eye on my machine. But the other thing... It's going to ruin my tape, yeah? Can I just...

    My new pride and joy...

    I'm looking forward to her input! And I'm way too eager to learn about. I just downloaded the manual, although it's for a B-2, not an MKIV, but they are identical in function and features. I'm surprised to see a preventative maintenance section! You NEVER see things like that anymore =) Oh...

    My new pride and joy...

    Hey guys! So the other day I sold my M-Audio Profire for $400 and turned right around and bought myself an Otari MX5050 MKIV-2 for $380. It came with the rack and is fully operational. I tested all of the I/O's, pots, functionality of the play, stop, etc. The capstan still seems to be in good...

    Sony TC-580

    Well, it has been a while, but I have done too much research for my own good... I still have the TC-580 in my possession, the guy lost communication with me. I did find a local place that has a few machines that pique my interest though. It's a big name broadcast station and they have 3 Otari...

    Mixing?

    Oh man, when paired with the HS10 the whole system REALLY kicks! I have been wanting that sub for a little while now to match my HS50's. I think they are great near field monitors for the price. I would have to suggest inserting an EQ before each one to get a more flat response. They have...

    Yamaha HS-50's just went down in price AGAIN. Now I think they are only $199 each, minus any discounted or B-Stock you can find...
