    Setting Key/Scale for HardTune in TC Helicon VoiceLive Touch

    Hello, I've watched all the tutorials and read all the manuals, and I can't figure out how to change the key for hard-tune presets in VoiceLive Touch. It appears it's possible to change the key for harmony, but not for the hard-tune scale. As a result, many of the melodies I'd like to sing...

    Recording An Album Live In The Homestudio

    Hi all, I'm setting it up with some friends to record an album live in my homestudio. Right off the bat I will say there is literally nothing special about my living room, no acoustic treatment, just a living room. I've tracked drums in there by hanging a bunch of rugs over windows and walls...

    Bock Mics

    Just curious to see if any of our RO members have used Bock/Soundelux Microphones..? If so, which model(s) have you used, and what do you think about them? If you have ever used real 47's, ELAMS or U67's, how do you think the Bock/Soundelux reproductions compare? I've been looking at them, they...

    Using a power amp/mixer as just a power amp for a mixing console?

    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I couldn't find a better one. I was hoping someone could clarify some questions I have about setting up a PA system for my home studio. I recently acquired a Peavey XM6 amplifier/mixer and we've been running it through an 80 watt behringer...

    Royer R-10, has the cheap fever caught everybody ?

    So Royer wanted a part of the semi-pro and home studio market. http://royerlabs.com/r-10/ I'm honestly intrigued because I'm the target for this new wave of products. As I don't have 2-4k for the highend products, I end up turning to quality budget gears ( if such thing exists ) But at the...

    Mic placement : your first EQ (video)

    Hi my friends, I've put up a new video which I think may benifit RO members. Let me know what you think of the sound and the production in general. (Trying to get better!) ;) Don't miss the electric distorted guitar on which mic placement has the biggest impact.

    Is SM7B a good choice for this artist?

    Hi guys! I have a client that I have been struggling with finding the correct mic for. He has a really sharp s sound so any of my condensers where out of the question the minute I heard his rap vocals. Here is an example of a song he recorded using an akg c3000 and I mixed and mastered. (he is...

    Oktava MK 0-12

    I just got my matched cardioid pair ! I haven't done any serious work with them yet. I did however, do a quik setup and record to tape of my acoustic guitar. I did use them as a spaced pair. I bought these specifically for recording my acoustic guitar. These are some extremely sensitive mics...

    Motown Recording Methods

    I've been researching the methods and gear of the classic age of Motown. One of the (many) things that jumped out at me as being interesting was the mics and methods they used for recording drums. Typically, they would use two U67's on the kit, with one placed in close proximity to the snare and...

    ANyone here modded a Rode NT1a

    Just thought Id see if anyone has modded a Rode NT1a If so . Was it an easy DIY ? I have one here that Id like to love more. I used it a lot when first bought and It helped me get some really harsh mixes through my daw. I would like to see it be more useable.

    Hardware set up for live discussion recorded for Podcast

    I'm looking to buy a bunch of audio equipment for amplifying/recording live talks in front of an audience. I want to be able to record each mic as it's own .wav file (into my laptop using Adobe Audition or similar) before sending it to the PA so I can separately adjust gain during the live...
