    Some new rock, metal, punk (whatever) tunes!

    We just finished our CD and they have finally made it available on Itunes! This is my first album on Itunes so I'm pretty excited. http://www.myspace.com/prisonercinema The entire Album was DIY, I did send the tracks out for mixing and mastering though. Some Techy info: Kick was a D4 through...

    gain staging - interface to monitors

    I posted this over at GS, just thought I would also post here for more info on the subject: So, I need to wrap my head around something that has me a little perplexed. I am going out of my Audiofire 12 into channels 15 and 16 of my A&H mixwizard, I then have the output from the A-B out to my...

    Are all Direct boxes created equal (obviously not but...)?

    I want to be able to record a direct signal to disk along with a mic'd signal from a guitar. Right now the only direct boxes I own is a Boss DI-1 and a Bass Driver DI (Sansamp). I want to get the cleanest signal possible for using amp sims later. As far as setup (If I were to use something like...

    Cubase Studio, see input levels

    Wow, I feel ridicules asking such a noob question, I haven't done much recording lately but I'm starting to get back into it. I swear that I used to be able to "see" the input levels in my cubase meters when I was recording a track. I use direct monitoring through my Echo Audiofire 12, so the...

    Question about Cubase Studio 4 and liquidmix

    I'm thinking about buying a focusrite liquidmix. I know the unit has high latency, but I'm using it for mixing, will the latency affect me? Cubase SL does not have external effect delay compensation (like Cubase 4 has) but I don't think the liquidmix would use this via Firewire anyway. I'm...

    Upgrading my mac

    Please keep this thread on topic: I need to upgrade my aging g4 933. I have some extra cash coming in (not much, but...). So I am basically looking at buying a used model. Now I haven't been keeping up with all the changes lately. PCIx, PCI express, Intel, etc. So I'm looking for some...

    Let's talk logos

    So we are changing our bandname, there is a story behind it. It refers to the colors you see when you rub your eyes or are in solitary, and our Guitar player who is blind sees them all the time. So we want to actually take things a little more seriously in this incarnation. Anyway, a logo that I...

    Oh crap, another new interface thread...

    I know I know, but I would like some opinions. I curently have a Delta 1010, I've had it for years, I like the simplicity and reliability. I finished tracking a project at the real studio where they use an RME hamerfall (I think) and a Tascam MX-2424 as there front end. There is a drastic...

    New Rock and Roll Song...

    First time tracking in the real studio (well the drums anyway). The band wants a pretty raw rock and roll sound. This is a premastered track. All tracking is done, just working out some of the bugs. What do you think? http://www.nowhereradio.com/artists/?aid=1228/album1641

    External effects in Cubase SL

    Yes I know that SX is better than SL, but, I was trying to use a compressor (dbx) last night w/ my delta 1010 (rackmount). I couldn't figure the best way to hook it up. The way I began was I went from output 8 into the comp, out of the comp recording back into chanel #8. I had the outputs and...

    I can't seem to be able to post, hopefully this one works...

    I have access to Roxul RHF-40 but I can only get the 2" product. It is the same price if I get 2@2" or 1@4". So my quesion is, would 2 pieces of 2" product have the same absorption properties of 1 piece of 4"? The specs of the 4" 4lb product look very good, but the 2" 4lb is very different, but...

    When getting a mix mastered...

    Hello all, this is a post/question regarding mixing for mastering. Of course I realize that when mixing one should put out the best mix possible. And I am fairly confident in my mixing abilities. That being said, I find that my mixes end up with too much mud for my liking. I find the low end the...

    A recording question of sorts...

    So how do you guys deal w/ projects turning into a grind for the band? I'm working w/ a band right now, they are friends of mine, and I'm charging very little (which is OK as far as I'm concerned) but that also gives them ample oportunity to take as long as they want to do overdubs. This is...

    External effects in Cubase

    I'm running Cubase SL and I want to get into using some external effects units after the tracks are recorded, such as Comps and reverb units. How do I hook this into the signal chain? I'm using a Delta 1010 and A&H Mixwizard. In the big studio we would use a send out of whatever channel and...
