I made a third instalment to my video series about cheap spring reverb solutions. This time I talk about using an old mixing board with a built in tank. Hope you enjoy!
I hope to start a discussion on this thread. What is your cheapest piece of gear you use on your recordings? Any hidden gems (uh oh hope we don't drive up the prices of anything!!)
In this video, I compared all my preamps with 2 different mics (Shure SM57 and Microphone-parts.com T47 DIY kit) What many want to know is if an external preamp even the cheapest is better than those included in an interface. And how will they compare to highend preamps.
So here it is, let me know what you think !
I'm getting close to finishing a lot of my songs and I'm down to just listening through them and putting vocals on the ones I'm happy with. Many years ago I used to love T-racks 24 for mastering but for many reason, it's unusable. What is the cheapest way of achieving what that program did? Is the way forward to now use mastering plugins rather than standalone? I have looked at the Waves Abbey Road but in all honesty, this is way above my head and I have no clue what is good or bad. I just want something nice cheap and easy to use that does what the T-racks 24 did.
I just recently got an MXL 770 and got a crappy Phantom power box and then got a bad noise and looked around and I found out I need an audio interface to mess with the fain etc, but I don't want to spend $50+ if possible and def not 65+. Do you have any recommendations? Also whatever you recommend keep in mind I used an XLR to USB to hook into my computer.
I'm not sure that I belong on this forum. But I just wanted advice...I'm a hobbyist songwriter with no mic. so I use my cheap chinese replica earphones(with mic attached) to record.
I want to buy a cheap mic to get clear recordings rather than sing upclose into a tiny hole.
Hello, I'm looking to purchase some high density eco friendly acoustic materials for building panels such as cotton or polyester materials. I don't want to use rockwool or fibreglass because of the air quality and safety hazards these materials contribute to. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and I'd like to order within the country or ideally purchase from a local supplier. Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you!
Saw this on facebook and thought that it would solve my current situation if getting some songs recorded with video.
It does both. But is the video really good? I am thinking I might still have to use my Focusrite and record.
Another article we published if you guys are interested.
This one is on inexpensive and nondescript gear that are useful in a smaller studio for unlocking a clean and efficient audio workflow - http://enmoreaudio.com/3-pieces-of-handy-gear-to-unlock-a-better-audio-workflow/
What other kinds of gear in this field do you guys use? Would love to know your thoughts?
I took a chance and bought a set of these...
Dirt cheap.. I needed some extra mics for live recording on guitar cabinets etc.. In looking for a set I couldn't find anything demo wise that showed the potential of mics as most people who by them are kids or beginners with subpar drumsets.. I made a few videos to see what they can do..
I'm selling my RODE NT-USB, and I'd like to replace it with a proper XLR mic to go with my new audio interface. I was thinking along the lines of the RODE NT1 or the RODE NT2-a (probably out of those two I'd go for the RODE NT1). However, would it be better to get some other mic for that price range - would a dynamic mic like the Sure SM7B be better for my untreated room, although I'd also like to be able to use that same mic in the future as a drum overhead (and obviously I wouldn't be able to do that with a dynamic mic).
