    Possible to record directly as .mp3 file?

    Is it possible to record to your choice of format in the current version of Audition? I've been able to do this in other DAWs, but the current software that I'm working in at work doesn't have that capability; so I have to save everything as a .wav file and convert later, which takes a lot of...

    FS: E-MU 0404 USB Audio Interface

    Great USB interface with Class A preamps, MIDI, lots of monitoring and output options. Versatile and well-made piece of studio starter or mid-range gear. Has been a solid and reliable part of my voiceover studio, and the only reason that I'm parting with it is that it's not compatible with my...

    FT - Sennheiser 416 for Quality Mic Pre or ?

    I have a Sennheiser MHK416T shotgun mic, with an adapter for 48v phantom power, so it can easily be used as either a film or video location boom mic, an industry-standard voiceover mic (the VO mic of choice for promos, trailers, etc.), or both. It's in good working condition, with a few cosmetic...

    Wanted: Sennheiser MKH416

    Looking for a used but fully functional 416. Cosmetics unimportant if everything works the way it should. Needs to be a dependable everyday working tool. Prefer the P48 version, but will consider the T version for the right price. I can get them brand new locally with full warranty for just over...

    Avalon 2022 Weirdness

    The Avalon 2022 that I use at work has started behaving oddly. On one channel, there seem to be random power spikes - the VU meter jumps around and clips and pegs, even when there's no mic running through it. The other channel seems fine. This started happening intermittently on Mondays, after...

    Best Use of Patch Bay and Mixer?

    I just acquired a Mackie 1402 VLZ mixer, and between that and my Neutrik 48 point patch bay, I want to optimize my setup to will allow me to combine any one of my mics with any one of my preamps quickly and easily, without having to recable every time I want to swap. Sounds simple - does it make...

    Trade Feeler: Want better mic preamp or strip

    I have a few toys, but would really like to start upgrading my entry level mic pres. I have too much bass-oriented gear, and too little VO stuff. My dream unit is the Avalon 2022AD, which would give me both the ultimate mic pre, and the ultimate DI for bass (at least for my uses). However, that...

    Safe to use external speaker jack on amp into interface?

    Forgive me for my newbieness with amps and such....:o I've recorded from a number of sources into my E-MU 0404 USB....I've done mics by direct XLR, mics in from mic preamps, bass DI, bass through preamp, in from an old home stereo rig to copy cassette tapes, etc., and have found it very...

    Screws for 1402-VLZ3 Rack Ears?

    I've replaced my older Mackie 1402 VLZ Pro at work with the 1402 VLZ3, but when I try to mount the old rack ears onto the new mixer, the screws are way too short to clear the rack ears and screw into the body of the mixer. I tried picking up some replacement screws, but am having trouble finding...

    V77 Care and Feeding

    I recently came across a V77 at a price that I couldn't resist....:cool: I've had the chance to test it out a bit, and I'm a very happy camper, but since I'd like to keep this one around for a long time, I'd like to care for it as well as possible. I wonder if I should be concerned about how...

    I call shotgun...

    ...mic, that is!! :) I won a BeyerDynamic 86N C S shotgun mic on the bay recently, and hope to use it for voiceover work, as an alternative to the Sennheiser 416 (which is beyond my budget). Has anyone had any experience with this particular mic, especially in a VO application? I've seen...

    The Old JoeMeek VC6 MeekBox

    Strap button location

    Stupid newbie question probably, but here goes: I'm most comfortable playing my fretless bass at a fairly upright, almost 40 degree angle, but if left to settle on its own, it settles into to about an 80 degree angle, so matter how I adjust the strap itself, and I find that I'm constantly having...

    Avalon M5 as vocal preamp?

    I know that it just has the Hi-Z input, but is there anyone here who has used it as a mic pre, either with a Hi-Z microphone, or by means of clever rerouting? I love the sound of the Avalon 2022 that I have at work for VO, and also as a killer bass DI, but don't have that kind of budget....the...
