    Recording bass

    One other thing to consider when going direct, is you often are recording a huge amount of subsonic and extended low frequencies that smear your sound on playback and eat up a lot of headroom. Try using an EQ with a High Pass Filter and set to 30-40 hz and slowly move it up towards 80-90 hz...

    WTB: Drum Machine

    I am on the lookout for a simple drum machine to use as a click track for recording. Ideally it would sound more like real drums than some techno-dance thing. Many folks I record just can't focus on a metronome sound so I need to make some simple drum patterns to have them record to. I am...

    Sell or Trade / Delta 1010's

    Hey guys and gals, I have upgraded to some nicer converters and I have 2 Delta 1010s (full version) that have had the word clock upgrade. I'd love to find them a new home. At least M-audio has been good about keeping current drivers for them. They are in fine shape. I figure that 1 is good...

    Kel HM2d

    Well, Due to the fact I absolutely love my Kel HM1's (drums / violins/ mando / banjo) I pulled the trigger on the new HM2d which is a large diaphragm condenser that is voiced to be similar to a large diaphragm dynamic (similar to an SM7). I had been trying to buy a SM7 under $250 with no luck...

    Kick Drum Case

    A little off topic. I want to buy my Son a Gig worthy case for his custom Mapex Kick. It is a beautiful but large 24" diameter by 20" long kick. With spurs folded probably 28" wide no mount on top so 26" on height and the depth I think the rims make it 24 inches. I could even go with adding a...

    What is it Called?

    OK, I am going nuts trying to figure out what this snare drum accessory is called, and where to find it. It looks like a small portion of wooden hoop the fits between a couple of lugs that helps save your sticks from getting chopped up on the edge of the hoops. I've looked for "stick saver" and...

I tried a patch bay but it pops a little when plugging in and the amp is on. I'd even consider building it, but am no genius with a soldering iron, (not too bad...

    What are the existing options for 16 channel I/O for an older computer? I want something better than RME if possible?

    Digital MPA Gold $200

    I don't know if it is kosher for me to post this, but I just saw a local listing for this and thought it a good enough deal to see if someone here could nab it. It's not mine, nor do I have any ties or knowledge of this guy. In other words, pursue at your own risk. Dallas Craig's list...

Is...
