    Setting up and monitoring using an audio interface into Cakewalk

    Remember too, that anything you record to your DAW is a mono file, but you can place them with the PAN control. Record 3 vocals, put one full left, one full right and one centered and you get stereo. Each channel can be placed anywhere in the soundfield with the pan control. One issue I...

    Importing data from Passport hard drive to Tascam 2488

    I've done a similar thing with my AW1600. I had originally mixed them down, so I had project files with effects added, just as you would with a DAW. When connected to a computer, the drive just looks like any USB drive. It makes for easy backup and restore. For someone wanted to work...

    DAW build 2021

    I'm with Steve. My days of gathering parts and assembling computers is pretty much over. I can still get inside and rip the guts out if needed, but there are so many places that will put together machines for not much more, that it's not worth the hassle. I would probably stick with an...

    Importing data from Passport hard drive to Tascam 2488

    Section 6 of the Tascam 2488 manual. https://tascam.com/downloads/tascam/353/2488_manual.pdf You will need to use a computer, I don't think you can just hook up an external drive. Such things didn't really exist when the 2488 was made in 2004.

    UMC22 Input 2 issues

    Sometimes it turns out to be the simplest of things. Glad it's working for you now.

    UMC22 Input 2 issues

    You should be able to direct monitor by hitting the direct monitor button and then turning up the output knob. That reroutes the input straight to the headphone jack, so there is no delay from routing through the computer. If that works (it should) then you can turn the direct monitoring off...

    I've been using the Bricasti M7 impulse files with Reaper. You can find various versions in the Wayback Machine. Wayback Machine Bricasti M7 Files

    UMC22 Input 2 issues

    Not knowing all the settings you are using right now, this info might be valuable. You SHOULD be able to hear both channels. Important: On Windows, Zoom will only be able to receive audio from the first two inputs of an audio device. This is because it does not support multi-channel ASIO...

    UMC22 Input 2 issues

    What model is the passive pickup that you have for your guitar? Some basic piezo pickups are very low output. It may be that the pickup is a bit too low for the UMC22 unless the gain is completely maxed. Adding the Loudbox to boost the signal, then recording it would certainly help. You...

    Idea, Making it Sound Purposely Lo-fi

    Rob, this a perfect example of storytelling in a song. Chapin was a master.

    Idea, Making it Sound Purposely Lo-fi

    I find the fact that you don't pay attention to lyrics fascinating. I'm totally the opposite. Some of my favorite songs were by folks like Harry Chapin, Jim Croce, Paul Simon, etc., who told a lot of stories in their songs. Then you have the other end of the spectrum, like Yes...

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    Something you might look into is a noise gate, set very low, like 30-40 dB below what your good signal level is reading. Have a look ahead of maybe 10-15ms set to avoid cutting off your voice. I took your RE20 Unedited, normalized it so I didn't have to pump up the fader, and added a noise...

    Idea, Making it Sound Purposely Lo-fi

    A fellow once posted a really nice rendition of a blues song, with his voice and guitar sounding like something out of the 40s. The only problem was is was crystal clear, no noise, or anything. Just on a whim, I found some old scratchy record noise, looped it and mixed it underneath...

    Yes Acoustic

    Yes, I've seen that one. Love watching Steve Howe do Long Distance Runaround on the acoustic. Yes is near the tops for pure musicianship among rock bands.

    Will a 60 watt solid state amp rated at 4ohms work with a 300 watt 4×10 bass cab rated at 8ohms?

    As much as l like Sweetwater, that's total BS. It doesn't REQUIRE twice the power. You can put a 200 watt speaker on a Princeton Reverb with a massive 12-15 watts. You just won't burn out the voice coil. It will still work, and depending on the sensitivity of the speaker, may be just as loud...

    Converting 4-track cassette to 4-track digital on PC

    The UMC404 will easily let you record all 4 tracks at one time. You just need a DAW, like Reaper or ProTools First, etc. Set it up for 4 tracks, choosing each of inputs of the 404, hit record and start playing the Tascam. You'll end up with 4 wav files on you PC that you can play with...

    Hagerman VALVE pedal (review/demo)

    Hey, I'm glad you like the pedal. I guess I don't get excited about boost/OD pedals, especially when the market is so completely saturated. Heck, I looked at Sweetwater's page and there were 68 boost pedals, and 194 overdrive pedals. Granted that $129 is a great price, but there are...

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    I like the K240s as well, especially for overall balance. I've currently got three sets of phones, Sony 7506s, AKG K240s, and Senn HD280s. The Sonys are bright, the Senns pretty dark. The AKGs seem fairly balanced to me. The 7506s are great for hearing details, but my mixes come out...

    What's goin' on with everybody

    Good for you. I can tell you from experience it will be worth it. If you're young, be aggressive. Its amazing how it adds up. If you have the option, put it in "after tax". Then all interest and growth is tax free (at least until the govt tries to changes the rules, which will be a...
