    I'm looking for a good starter vocal mic for under $300 USD - is it possible?

    I just bought a Lauten Audio LA-220 off Ebay for 169.00 they sell for 299.00 new. I have used the Rode NT-1 the sE2200 both good mics but the Lauten Audio I like the most. Works on everything. Vocals, Elec & Acoustic guitar...

    Hi, Thanks for listening. Yeah at this point. The guitars should just start the song. I'm still working on the vocals but this mix is a lot cleaner.

    All comments about the mix and the song are welcome, I appreciate any feedback before I send it off to Spotify. Its Titled "Break Free" about trying to break the cycle of being self destructive.

    I knew programming Keith moon would be a gamble. I'm posting one last mix with the drums at a lower volume and less fills. I think its better. Thanks everyone for listening.

    Thanks, after "cork" is one spot I advanced. Its very hard to hear what the kick is doing on the record, I lowered the kick in that spot because I also thought it was awkward, then I put it back up. IDK ?

    Ok I advanced about 70% of the drum tracks, 1/128th, its definitely better and I think its good enough to get the song across. Thanks Boulder.

    When is cutting a new nut necessary?

    If its a Stratocaster with a non locking tremolo system, the nut is crucial, how it's cut, the string gauge, the lubrication, etc. On the rest of my guitars I notice a difference changing string gauges, which I do often, because I use several different tunings. I just deal with the fact that...

    I level, polish, and corner the frets so they don't have rough edges.

    I'm sure they did, This neck was only 50 bucks and its actually pretty nice to play. I couldn't afford to spend a lot on a neck. Overall it came out pretty good. Standard wiring. I never considered cutting off the 22nd fret I guess I could have ? :)

    Which "Air" do you prefer ?

    I had the Lewitt Pure it is very bright, I found it to be too sterile for me. I'm currently using a WA-47 tube mic which is flat and rich. I'm careful not to over-do the "Air" effect but I do find it enhances the enunciation on the lead vocal. I have a 1073 clone with a 30k boost setting at 3db...

    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 ?

    Manslick : Why'd the pizza guy have to die?

    Hi Robert, Sounds great as always, a more Indie Folk type thing here, a bit different from you than usual. What I hear, is the Drums sound too upfront and mechanical for this type of song it needs a more a natural sounding drum track and I would like to hear a more complicated hi-hat part, like...

    IDK I bought it on eBay I don't think they're anything special. I did level and polish them. I also scraped the poly off and rubbed some burnt umber acrylic in spots to give it a unique look. then oiled it with linseed.
