The mics in the center of the circle scheme worked okay, thanks!

Hi folks, I got some advice here about a scheme to set up a simple unobtrusive set of mics in the middle of the circle at our weekly Irish session in order to have a collection of recordings to help us hear ourselves afterward, and, you know, for the same reasons people take pictures of each other I guess. So, I got the two ribbon mics (two cheap used SE X1R ribbon mics) and a Cloudlifter CL-2 and the whole thing runs off AA batteries and phantom power through my Tascam DR-40x.

Help ISP decimator pro rack G guitar convert to stereo mod version

hi everyone, i have an isp decimator g pro rack guitar version, for my marshall 9200, jmp1, jfx 1 configuration i would need the stereo mod version, i tried to look for used ones, but i couldn't find any. Opening the frame of my decimator I noticed that there is the possibility to convert it from guitar to stereo and vice versa. At the top left is indicated a legend of the position of the components that must be added or removed according to the version to be obtained, the problem that the values of the individual components are not described.

Stereo Width Experiments

 I am getting interested in building a hardware stereo image widener circuit.  I have seen a few ideas floating around based on the Middle(M) +Side(S) technique.  The basic premise can be summarized into the following equations:

Encoding M and S

Middle  = L+R

Side  = L-R

Middle Circuit

Translating that into basic op-amp circuits, the Middle signal could be created with a summing amplifier.

Zoom H1 weird stereo issue on speakers

I started recording with the Zoom H1 but noticed a weird issue when I played it back on the speakers (Macbook Pro)

The right speaker (channel) was way more dominant than the left.

So I split the channels to test it out.. now there's a clear difference between the left and right channel, even though visually it looks almost identical in Audition.
And the worst thing is, the playback sounds different on the Macbook speakers, on my iPhone and also on headphones.

This is the sample recording:

Izotope Ozone 9 lets you re-balance vocals in stereo mix.

This is a great new feature! Something i think we have been wishing for, for a long time. Adjust vocals, drums, and bass individually, right from the stereo mix! I skipped the upgrade from ozone 7 to 8, but did take advantage of intro pricing on 9, mainly for this feature. Check it out, seems to work very transparently. Between this, and superior drummer 3s ability to extract individual drums (and midi) from a stereo drum track, things are getting quite cool. We can now evade commitment even further in the process lol. Finally moving passed just emulations of great analog gear.

Stereo vs. Mono Di ? Stereo bleeding ?

Hi gang,
I'm looking to step up the quality of Di I own and since like always I don't want to spend too much. I'm thinking of buying a stereo DI instead of 2 mono.
This could be the one I choose : Radial ProD2 Passive 2 Channel Direct Box
My concern is, could there be bleeding between the channels if I put 2 completely different sources instead of a stereo source ?
They advertise it as 2 ProDi in one, but before I buy, I thought to ask here...
