The 2021 Let It Be Edition - Superb mixed and mastered

Produced by Giles Martin - the son of the famous George Martin - the 2021 Let It Be is superb! 

Listened to it tonight, and as a true Beatles fan, I really enjoyed it, just like Abbey Road a while ago.

On this album it is obvious, how limited they where technically back then. You can hear the freshness on this one, as well as all the details.

capstan size

I have a large number of reel to reel tapes left by my father- in-law. He recorded them at 1 7/8 (i think that's correct, lowest speed possible). Unfortunately, my tape deck, pioneer rt-909, has only 9.5 as the lowest speed. Is it possible to change the capstan (provided i could find one) to be able to play these tapes?

New monitor controller, an overview.

I just bought a new monitor controller as my old became bad in time. I had a cheap ESI passive controller. Now I bought the Presonus Monitor Station V2.

It has two sets of TSR stereo inputs, One S/P Dif coaxial input and aux Unbalanced RCA/ 1/8 inch stereo input. You can connect three sets of monitors and four headphones. The monitor outs have adjusments pots, so you can equal the volume of each set of speaker to each other.

On the headphone side you can choose either the main source or selectable cue source. Volume is adjustable per headphone out.

EQ tube mic

I'm in the process of searching for a workhorse, multipattern tube mic to fill a sonic hole in my mic cabinet. The "hole" is in the low mids to mostly quality low end. In my search I've been torn between the classic 251, 67 and 47 sound characteristics. The uses will be the full range of male/female vocals, acoustic instruments and room mic. Not asking much right?

How to add drum beats to Audacity?

I'm a professional https://sikksounds… drum beat maker and I use Audacity to record my guitar compositions. I'd like to add drums to the mix for some very simple demos. I'm not sure how I'd go about doing this. Other software packages (GarageBand, Pro Tools, etc.) might be better for this, but every time I look at something else, the notion of learning how to use it overwhelms me.

Partner for recording studio in UK

I hope this is allowed. I have a successful recording studio based in the midlands UK. I am looking for a business partner. Ideally a producer/ Engineer/ or songwriter who can bring in clients and make more use of the current set up. This would involve some form of investment (financial or asset). The studio is Pro Tools based with large control room and studio areas along with separate editing/ mastering suite and in a countryside location. The premises are rented, but the owner is sympathetic to our needs. I, personally, have nearly 40 years experience in the industry.

Recording Music on Video from a Voice Recorder

This may not be the Norm! but I'm interested in recording Background Music onto a Digital Voice Recorder, and then playing that Music into my Phone while it is shooting a Video! which hopefully will result in Raw Camera Video File, with BG Music! ...My question is, Can this be done? and what would I need to do It?
