    THIS applies to EVERYONE

    There was series about recording Heavy Metal in Sound on Sound a couple of years ago. I was surprised at how meticulous and "fussy" the recording engineer/producer was. Wrong of me perhaps but I think most folks would think you just put 'em in a corner and let 'em bash it out? Dave.

    UMC22 Input 2 issues

    In that case a simple clean booster pedal should help. Dave.

    Is it just me

    Oh dear! Yes! I can see how the term "feeble" might come across as derogatory to our colonial cousins! Seems a slight against one of their most famous microphone companies? Let me say at once that I would LOVE a 7b? At least I would like my son to try one on classical guitar. He uses an SM57 and...

    Setting up and monitoring using an audio interface into Cakewalk

    Ok, if you delve into Cakewalk you might find a "Mono Mix" option that records one input on both tracks, L&R. I can do that in Samplitude but I am sure you can turn a mono track into 'double mono' with Cakewalk post tracking? "Just my computer speakers" Yes, ok fine but IF they have RCA inputs...

    Tell you what Rob? It is both sobering and depressing that someone has the time, money, place, equipment and expertise to setup such a demonstration! My son likes it all and tells me he is going to rip a few of the sounds for his personal use. He is doing note by note constructions of...

    Setting up and monitoring using an audio interface into Cakewalk

    No, you can connect speakers AND headphones (unless the Solo is unlike any AI I have ever seen or read about!) The stumbling block seems to be the BT speakers. What are they? Make and model, better a link to manual. I very much doubt they are devoid of ANY analogue input? Might be 3.5mm jack and...

    Setting up and monitoring using an audio interface into Cakewalk

    I think you are being overgenerous Rob. Sound card chip more like $0.5! Dave.

    Setting up and monitoring using an audio interface into Cakewalk

    I am confused. If you have an external interface you monitor everything through that. NOT the PC soundcard. The RCA sockets should go to the BT speakers IF they are so equipped. If not then you either need different/better speakers* or find a way to use the Solo via the PC's BT system but that...

    Setting up and monitoring using an audio interface into Cakewalk

    I have not used Cakewalk for a number of years but most DAWs follow the same connection regime. You should be able to find the Blue Tooth 'device' as a playback option. That said, I find BT bloody infuriating! I have a Ugreen BT audio converter and it WILL not talk to this Lenovo W10 laptop. My...

    Will a 60 watt solid state amp rated at 4ohms work with a 300 watt 4×10 bass cab rated at 8ohms?

    "Could you provide any references for this recommendation? Screen clip from a book or database?" No, and even if I could someone could find a dozen references to the contrary. My statement is based on the measurement of several valve guitar amplifiers. One nominally 60W amp (2X EL34) was found...

    Thanks Mike I shall WeTransfer those to him. He has the free Reaper but if he needs to we can get it 'legalized! He is very deeply immersed in Samplitude Pro X 3. We have used a version of Samplitude for over ten years, do you know if the files will run in other DAWs? I agree 'backing off' the...

    THIS applies to EVERYONE

    Bloody brilliant John! My son, who is a total numpty with things acoustico-electric has found (just by fekkinLISTENING!) that his modest setup, Mackie EM-91c LDC and UMC204HD records his classical Bach guitar transcriptions much better with the mic placed just over a mtr away. His flat in France...

    Is it just me

    Cannot say I have noticed the 7b much in UK TV but than I don't watch much sport save snooker! The proliferation of such a feeble mic could also be helped by the relatively cheap inline boosters such as the FetHead we now have. I have one and it lifts a Behrry 8500 (C 2mV/Pa) very nicely. Dave.

    UMC22 Input 2 issues

    I do no quite get all the connotations here (I know nothing of macs but see *) but I might be able to help the OP and 'short circuit' some time wasting frustrations? I am going to assume Zoom is like Skype in that is is relentlessly "mono" and will also only 'see' input One from an interface...

    Will a 60 watt solid state amp rated at 4ohms work with a 300 watt 4×10 bass cab rated at 8ohms?

    Bloody hell! Lot of vitriol flying around here. One problem with amps and loads is that there are two distinct types of amplifier in the guitar world (where I might claim a tiny bit of experience?) valves and transistors*. Valve OP stages (gitamps) have a relatively high source impedance. An...
