    Suggestion on Panning needed!

    Cool tune. Lots of issues with mix. Agreed that main solo guitar is either just over distorted, or maybe you have a saturation plug on it? Also the cymbals are really friggen harsh as well. One suggestion, forget about the 'stereo width' thing. I have yet to hear someone use one effectively...

    Are PreAmps a marketing myth?

    Naw man, that is not fair nor is it true. The comparison between a ART MPA II and a Neve 73 is not a competition in any way. They are two different animals. It is more about the sound you are looking for. Personally, I had a MPA and it sounded to me like an 80's ADA guitar preamp giving...

    Do I need delay?

    Delay is sometimes used to create a 'space' as well as reverb. Sometimes a short delay can help to create a space without making the source sound distant like reverb can.

    OMG! Where To Put All This Gear?

    So many here have these clean and pretty organized studios. Props to you that do that. I just don't clean much. Mine is messy and dusty. But it is a layed back kind of rehearsal studio environment. Back to the OP question: stack shit and make the room as you best you can. Make it pretty if you...

    Free space from politics

    I just wanted to say that I actually get to take a good and healthy deep breath when I come to this site. FB is a political meat grinder. It is tiring and non productive. People I have been friends with for decades threatening to unfriend. It's insane. I like coming here and talking about...

    Connecting X32 board to Cubase
