scenario; recording to analog tape. 8 mic lines from the studio into 8 mic inputs in C/R. recording bands live. rhythm section, then overdubs, horns if needed, vocals last.

assume there's 5 - sm57's and 2 - 414's in the collection already. we're on a tight budget. what 8 additional mics would you choose for the mic locker?

Ive been interested in transparent gear and processors lately, and just wondering what the most transparent pluggins are that your using. I think i would say the fabilter compressor, and ozone eq are probably mine. The fab limiter has a bit of a gloss to it to me im not sure if its as transparent as the ozone limiter but i do like it. I haven't used it yet but i think the softube Weiss comp/limiter/maximizer will probably be more transparent than ozone or fab.

Hi gang,

I thought it could be cool to share our latests things learned or the thing you just realised you could do differently..

For exemple, I often did M/S array for recording acoustics.. but for some different sound, I now do 2 mono recordings instead.
I'll be doing a video about how to fake a big drum rooms the right way.. Another thing I realised I could do differently for a more natural result.

Samplitude Videos - What's next ?

Hi to all,

You might have seen that I'm posting many videos here on the forum and many are about Samplitude.
First, I hope I'm not anoying anyone and that at least 1 person is gaining something while listening.

Since there isn't many videos about Samplitude, It's kind of a good thing for the channel because it makes it easier to find and get views.

But I thought I'd ask you, my friends, what would you like to see next?
About Samplitude or other subjects.

Covid-19 - What do you think is really happening?

Since 1999, this community has kept politics, religion and off topic discussions away from here but maybe today we make an exception. I think I'm speaking for the majority of members, hoping we all get through this crazy pandemic and life returns back to some normality.

Where to send a sick microphone and what can I expect

Member for

I have a Groove tubes model 6tm. It has a chinese K67 capsule and a cinamag transformer, I replaced the tube on this mic with a 5840 / 6225, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off from antique supply and it sounds okay to me. I really took my time and labeled everything, but it is noisy. It needs like 50db of gain on a great river nv-2 to produce a good vocal level, it sounds good and has some of what I think are 67 characteristics.
