    Polarity vs Phase - Why do I need to know this? (video)

    Polarity vs Phase - Why do I need to know this ? Polarity and Phase are 2 things that anyone who does music production needs to master. Even if you only have a home studio, as soon as you start to use more than one microphone to record or if you are doing a lot of overdubs with the same...

And how will they compare to highend preamps. So here it is, let me...

    Preamp Observation: advantages to clean, advantages to color

    I've used many preamps over the years that I've been recording and mixing, and while there are certainly still parts to the craft that I'm still learning - things I'm not sure of but pick-up on, as time passes and technology advances - and I have made a particular observation ... about preamps...

    CAPI VP-28 DIY preamp review - clips included

    I first learned about CAPI gear on the forums. I was looking to dip my toes into the world of API sounds, not fully knowing what that meant.

    @audiokid @Boswell @everyone Having spec'd most of the new system I'm down to the summing section. The rolls folcrum seems like a great no nonsense box, that allows for creativity with color or transparency, because it's completely passive and requires a pre amp / make up gain stage. A gear...

    Proper use of the preamps

    My converter and i/o is the Mbox Pro (3rd generation in case it matters) It uses the preamp if it's switched to Mic. It does not apply the preamp section with line inputs. I have a set of Roland TD-11's that have a line out, L/R. When I first set them up I got almost no volume at all. With...
