HELP - Digitizing ADAT sVHS Tapes

Submitted by Philipptim on Thu, 03/30/2023 - 10:20

Hello, hopefully someone here knows the answer to my question.

I'm currently digitizing sVHS tapes using JVC VHS player, together with 'Elgato Video Capture' software.

I'm having the same consistent problems with all the tapes that say "ADAT" on them. All of them do not have any picture or sound. Tape is spinning, but 'No Signal' keep blinking on the screen.

Standing desk for music production?

Anyone use a standing desk for music production?

If so, what's your setup? (ie. sitting / standing, manual adjustable desk or with a motor, which brand you might recommend, etc.)

My current setup is very ghetto (and clunky / uncomfortable) so thinking about how to design something that's most optimized for a smooth workflow, yet comfortable for many hours of production).

Is there a specific chair that's most loved by music producers?

Or one you use and would recommend?

My current chair is literally almost a 90 degree "L" shaped hard chair with almost no padding and needless to say, it's very uncomfortable. Looking to up my chair and desk game.

Ribbon Microphone for Classical Soprano

I’m interested in potentially getting a ribbon microphone for mostly just hobby recording in my home. I’ve been having a terrible time finding examples and information on recording classical vocals on a ribbon microphone, however, the one example I did find sounded quite beautiful. The singer was recording using an AEA R84, however, it’s a bit out of my price range.
