  • Hi Brian

    I see you use the ISA 430... I have the ISA 220. Having issue setting the mic gain. May I ask where you have yours set? I'm using the Sennheiser 416. Can't seem to get the mic gain right...and not sure if I need to use the Trim.

    Any advice you can provide is most welcome.

    Thank you

    ps - BIG fan of your Power Pig days and your WLW work. I also imaged WWWM/Toledo when you were the VO.
  • I hope your voice recovered from all the friggin reads I sent in the last couple of weeks. Thanks for the quick turnaround on all of it. KDKA loves the vocal jihad!
  • "I know 'dats right!"

    Thanks Brian! We had way too much fun, back then!
    Didn't animal rights activists show up at the station when we did that?
    I had gone home after we did the bit...I guess I missed the action. lol.
    They must've felt embarassed when they learned that it was just me, doing a squealing puppy imitation, feeding a snake.
    Damn, that was back when stations were more than happy to welcome complaints and chalk up ratings, rather than appologize for extreme fun & entertainment as they do now!
    What's the world coming to? =]

  • Hey Brian!

    You... are... everywhere!!!,,,
    ARE you on that site?

  • Nnoooo! Frightening! . Yo Brian!
    Glad to see you, here.

    I was just talking to Flounder about the "Puppy-Snake parody" we did...rofl! (amung others)

    Great to see you! Give me a ring, soon.
  • Thank you for being my stalker! Your amazing!! xoxoxo-m
  • Hi Brian

    LOVE your reads 4-ever. I'm a Creative/studio rat. Have worked Cleveland, Raleigh, Columbus and smaller markets. Did a lot with Clear Core over the years til downsizing hit me in Raleigh, and more recently Toledo. I produced you for WWWM/Toledo for about two years.

    LOVE the mic chain. Can't afford the Massive or the e251... but I do have an ISA220 and would like to get the Soundelux U195 (now Bock Audio).

    I can't seem to get a lot of punch from the ISA. I use it with a 416.

    mic to the ISA to an old Symetrix 528, for gating only.

    On the ISA I have the Gain at 20-50, then the Trim at roughly +8.

    Comp is 3:1 and the only EQ I have on is the ALL EQ and the Shelving EQ with the low at 0 and 160Hz and the hi at about 2 oclock and 10kHz

    Any suggestions. I of course utilize L1 and C1 comp/gate plugs.

    Love your reads. Sarcasm is the best. Your reads for WLW and back in the day on :"The Power Pig" are incredible.

    I think a station like the Pig would work today.

    Bumper Morgan is a friend of mine. Used him on oldies WMJI Cleveland for a few years.

    any suggestions for the ISA220 would be much appreciated.

    Rock On
