    Which "Air" do you prefer ?

    A lot of vocals are recorded with "Air" EQ. Do you prefer the sound created by a mic that has a high end lift, or a flatter mic using a plugin/ outboard preamp (EQ) to add the "Air" Or both ?

    Rupert Neve Dies at 94

    Rupert Neve, A pioneer of the recording console has passed away. I've always loved the Neve sound. Many of my favorite records were recorded on Neve consoles. I've had the pleasure of recording and mixing on a Neve console and I've owned several 1073 clones of which I'm buying another one now.

    32 Bit Integer Recording Resolution Anyone ?

    Steinberg has recently released an affordable line of Interfaces (the UR - C series) that can record in 32 bit Integer bit depth. I currently record in 32 bit floating point. 32 bit Integer to my understanding is a different resolution. I have read that it is overkill because most Microphones...

    Sound Isolation Question help needed ?

    I may have the opportunity to purchase a small Condo. Is there a way to add sound proofing that will considerably cut down the loud sounds, so I could play loud monitors, a small tube amp, loud acoustic guitars, loud singing etc. without disturbing neighbors. What is the most practical way to...

    Does Anyone use a TonePort UX1(2) and Pod Farm 2.5

    Has anyone used the Toneport UX with Podfarm 2.5 for vocals ? I'm intrigued by the mic preamp software in Podfarm 2.5. Is it really any good? USB interfaces don't impress me because of their big latency. I have a good PCI interface so I could just buy a mic pre instead, but a good ones at least...

    MID/SIDE Question ?

    I have noticed that I can get some pretty interesting results using the MID/SIDE processing functions in my Izotope 5 Mastering Suite. Mostly I notice a cleaner bass, and a cleaner stereo spread. It does make sense to get a bit more clarity by treating the middle and sides separately with some...

    Metering Question

    I recently downloaded this Free compressor, works surprisingly well. My question is that when you change the preset to mixbuss or premaster (buss) the VU meter works the other way around. In other words it acts like an output meter rather than showing the amount of reduction. How do you know how...
