    VSO and Key Change tools

    JoeH, Thanks. I am all MAC and I decided on the WaveLab 7 for MAC which will be here next week. I can already see it's more than I need or want in a learning curve but I know some SW has a lot of artifacts. Most of my projects are tracked here and mixed/mastered elsewhere. I've worked on 3...

    VSO and Key Change tools

    After doing more research on this it seems WaveLab 7 offers the most bang for the buck SW package. The lite vs does not include the pitch shift algorithms so it will have to be the full package. I'm surprised there are no plugins dedicated just for this but this will probably be the way I go...

    VSO and Key Change tools

    Is there a cost effective VSO "AND" Key Change tool out there, either outboard or plugin? I want to use on final mixes to speed up tempo without changing pitch and change the pitch/key without changing tempo. I have been mastering to an Alesis Masterlink. I do not know of an outboard tool...

    recording booth? -to sound-proof from exterior noise

    I just posted this (vocal baffle) on the Acoustics discussion. I know some will laugh at this but when you consider how simple, cheap and stable this is you may want to try it. Much in-room leakage comes from drives, amps and reflections as well as the open back end of the mic picking up the...

    Eclipse 3.0 or PCM 91 or Reverb 4000?

    This is a constant battle and I am fortunate enough to own a Lexicon MXP-1, an Eclipse and a TC4000. The Lex PCM 91 and the TC4000 are in a separate category. These are PURE reverbs, not multi-FX units and the TC4000 is a true stereo reverb, not to be overlooked. Starting out with a...

    Mic/Pre combo-bang for buck

    Just word on a combo I've been working with for about 6 months now and absolutely love. I stumbled upon these by default and actually got a steal on both the Cascade v55 vacuum tube mic (list $699) and Trident S20 dual solid state mic pre. (list $1999 - got mine from Guitarget for $805) I...

    Digital Clocks - Which one??

    I had the Big Ben but only sent it back because I needed to buy more gear to get it to work as the clock master. I opted for the Lynx Aurora 8 and am ecstatic. It has a great clock (SynchroLock) inside and definiely improves my system by reclocking all my BNC units, daisy chained. As a...

    Really good isolation headphones

    Audio Technica ATH M40f. I have used many different phones in the Record Plant, Studio D, and other major studios. There are better extreme ISO phones I'm sure but I first got a pair of ATH M40f’s ($185 list) on a promotion for the AT 4041 mic. I have since purchased 4 more sets at the going...

    How often replace mic/instr cables? + Mic Storage

    I honestly can't speak to cable care as I can't afford Mogami and usually use cables until they malfuntion and either repair or replace them at that point. My monster cables are holding up. I can offer this on mic care and storage. I feel it all comes down to how you use them. If you...

    Recording drums - only 2 good pre's

    Factors to consider: The sound you want. Listen and learn from how these drums were recorded and imitate. Example. If you want "When the Levy Breaks" you'd better have a big, tall room, some incredible overhead mics and killer compressors to emulate the sound on that track. Many have...

    Top banana Converters for 16 ins and outs of 'Puter.

    I can't quote the cost on your computer cable needs but I just bought a Lynx Aurora 8 for a Mackie d8b set up. ETA is Friday to install. I believe I have the right cables and was pleasantly surprised to get a great bargain on my needs. The Aurora 8 is tascam technology on the anolog side...

    8 channel DAC with AES ins needed

    Did you say RME Converters kicked ass on a Rosttta combo with Big Ben? I was under the impression the rme gear was much, much less expensive than the Apogee stuff. I just reluctantly returned a Big Ben due to a "possible" card problem on my d8b. The Big Ben was looking like a great move (to...

    Sebatron pre's- GT Brick.. thoughts?

    I've heard great things about The Brick and I always like it when a company makes a more affordable product while encorporating the core technology of a proven winner. An anology might be when Mic companies like Neumann and Rode started making large diaphragm and tube mics with out all the...

    CLOCK and Digital FX

    With over 70 reads but O responses. I would guess the interest is there so I'll further offer this. You can in fact run all BNC out of the Big Ben (in my studio) into the d8b, HDR2496, and DBX356, the eclipse has Optical (1 on BB), the TCFinalizer has AES, the Lexicon has Coaxial (1 on BB) and I...

    Big Ben and digital FX

    This answer from the Mackie d8b forum: "if you're feeding the FX with digital audio, you'll still be passing it the embedded word clock in the audio signal, and if there is a parameter to set digital in as the word clock source for that device, you should do so. I feed a Lex PCM91 and TC...

    Preamps

    I have not worked the The Brick PREs but would recommend the Triton dual pre which originally listed at $1995, has been dropped all the way to $999 (I got mine for $808) and offers two, very transparent, quiet PREs with lots of headroom. The mic A-B feature on both channels is another nice...

    CLOCK and Digital FX

    I also posted this question under Mstering (Big Ben) Any help on this is appreciated. I have run a digital Studio for a couple of years using only a mackie clock card and am sold on the Apogee Big Ben as one worth the investment. I haven't upgraded much lately and am unsure about exactly how...
