  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, we all know guitar recording 101 "You cab has four speakers, one of them is going to sound better than the other three, find which one that is". When I see slant cabs mic'd in the studio, it's almost always the bottom straight section. Unless the cab has like, 20 mics on it, an extensive...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Is there a room mic in this vid? How is he getting that tone, is it all the gretch? It sounds almost like an acoustic. Ive not really tried a hollowbody properly before but damn if that vid isnt making me want to get a Gretch.

    Long story short: My buddy's 1960b is picking up audio and sending it back through to the recording interface. What the fuck. Details... DAW: Reaper (OSX) Interface: Saffire Pro24 Rig1: AxeFX2, output1 runs into Saffire-Input3, output2 runs into a matrix/2x12 setup. Rig2: MkIV + ENGL E570...
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    Ive been recording for a few years now. All I've been using is the emulated out on my HT-100 Metal directly into my interface and into GarageBand. Needles to say, I'm not getting the best guitar tone in my recordings. Meanwhile I've got a mid 90's dual recto sitting in the room collecting...

    This thing is really cool, works with both Android and iOS. It was under $20 shipped and sounds so much better then the mic on my phone. You can also use it with an app called Audiotool for realtime analysis and other stuff like that. I may try that out, but got it for Youtube clips when I don't...
  6. Music: Other Instruments
    I've had Röde NT5 for about 5 years now, but because I had to keep them in my rehearsal while tracking another band in their rehearsal, we agreed on getting me a new pair of mics (aside from the rest of recording they paid, so super nice of them!) It's not until now I've had time to actually...
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    Ok, so I've been wondering what I've been missing. I got a 'warm audio tone beast'. Its supposed to be a lot like a 312 and I didn't want to shell out for a 3124+ (£2800, seriously?) or buy the PSU and case for one 512. I have a fireface UFX. Apparently it has competent, clean pres, according...
  8. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Great condition. Has AC adapter but no original box. Great preamp. My price is firm at $60 USD shipped to Canada or USA.
  9. Music: Recording Studio
    Well I had a lucky week and was able to score a pair of large diaphragm mics for the price of less than one. Finally got my fucking SM7. :lol: What can I say, it sounds beastly on my vocalists heavy vocals. Had to play with the presence switch on it to get her cleans good as there was a weird...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I have a dude wanting to trade me a Wolfgang Special Stealth for the RG6CSD2 and wanted to see if anyone here has one and what they think of them? General consensus seems to be they're one of the best MIC guitars out there and I'll probably get more use out of it than the baritone. So what...

    Specifically, their ribbon mic: Avantone Audio CR-14 | Seems to get pretty good reviews, and is definitely a fair price. I'm wanting to expand the mic closet a bit more than just what I've got, which is next to nothing. :lol:
  12. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Audix i5 - I think I've used this 2 or 3 times since I traded it with Matt, and it's sat in a cushioned guitar case since, just on the off chance I need a mic when I'm gigging. I haven't. Any recording I do at home now is all direct, as I haven't got the space nor capacity to mic up properly. No...

    Cheaper is better, but audio quality takes the first priority. This isn't my playing, or representative of our present recording quality, just an old demo, we're re tracking this now, so these are the Vox we're using. Any input is appreciated, thanks!
  14. General Music Discussion
    I haven't heard a thing from my band in 3 weeks - nothing. Not sure if I quit or got fired. Background: I play in a tribute band that has played out and has 25 songs down solid. One of the members decides to book an open mic night that is about an hour's drive from me on a week night. I...
  15. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I bought these for a recording project and only used them twice. Like brand new and have been just sitting in the case for like a year. So i'm putting them up. I paid $500 new for them at GC. Asking $250 + shipping(shipping shouldn't be much). I have perfect iTrader here and over at SSO under...
  16. Music: Recording Studio
    Looking for a Christmas present for my father, I thought i'd try to add to his (already impressive) mic collection. He somehow doesn't have a SM57(Sennheiser guy, but wants a few 57s for guitar and such) and while I thought about just grabbing one of those, I found a Rode M3 for a damn good...
  17. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I'm looking for a used decent mic to run vocals and the occasional cab mic, preferably something cheap, but decent, like a shure sm58. Any of you chaps have an extra lying around you'd be willing to part with for a monetary exchange?

    This actually came in a while ago, but fuck making threads on time, right? Got this from Garrett. He's a rad guy to deal with, even though he's a total dick for not including the scarf he said he would include. :squint: No clips yet. Also, feet. :yesway:

    What part of the fucking thing do you mic? Shure SM7B. I love how novelty this shit sounds in the really fruity folk metal I hear it in, and I decided I needed to write a blackened glam metal song about the glory of ancient albion that had some catchy fucking gang chants with some rustic "I...
  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    There's nothing more shitty and frustrating than a drooping stick. Alas, that's what my boom does. It dips. It slumps. It's generally frustrating. Please, tell me, what brand to buy that stays stiff and upright? Seriously. Trying to record acoustics is a lesson in aggravation right now.
