"The U87 and many 'great' mics of similar heritage are great for a couple of reasons. 1) They sound good. 2) They are consistent. 3) Their off axis pickup ( ie not right in front of the mic) is balanced. So a Neumann or KS32, AKG 414 are all known…"

"If the mic is on or open, then you are probably looking at how quiet or noisy the room is."

"'It depends'. In general that should be good but not perfect. There are a couple of questions. 1) How did you come up with "-65"?
2) Was that with the mic channel open? A mic connected, no mic?
3) What is the meter referenced to:  0 dBFS (zero db…"

"You are both welcome. BTW Howard I obviously that your comments were spot on. The difference behind a top end mic pre and a Mackie is not as big as you think given the price difference. But you can hear it and often it is worth it. Avalon and…"

"Here is one way to look at it.
See page 20 of the manual for reference.
1- Make sure the high pass filter is on or down
2- Try boosting the LOW 1.5 to 3 db ( roughly 12:30 to 1 o'clock). Does it help?
3- Zero out the low boost, turn the MID FREQ to…"

"Universal Audio 610, LA610, 6176 combo!, defiently is tube character.  Demeter, or used Avalon for less character."

"Mike,
Good post on a subjective topic. A large diaghram will always sound 'warmer' or less detailed than a small diaghram mic. And the 416 dies have a certain punch doesn't it. After that it's quite a matter of taste. Howard have you ever tried…"

"To clarify on my previous comment about PreSonus. They make fine gear, I didn't think the Eureka was competition to the Red7/737 class mic pre."

"It simple terms a compressor+a filtered input to drive the compressor is a de-esser. The de-esser switch puts a filter in the detector (not the signal path) of the compressor. When this special input is brought out to a connector it is called a side…"

"Alexis,
Preamp choices are kind of personal. Some are very clean, some add a nice color. In particular popular units with 'color' are Focusrite Red 7, Avalon 747, and the Universal Audio 6176 let's say. The UA 610 is a good tube pre with no comp. In…"

"Alexis,
The software de-esser is a good option.
Otherwise you need a compressor that has a de-ess feature. One way to find the ss problem is to play the file and add 6+ db of boost and sweep the frequencies with a parametric EQ, and make it worse.…"

"Alexis,
Do you have a compressor with a side chain input?"

"A de-esser is special kind of compressor. You use the filter in it to tune the compressor to the sss sounds. A lot of the higher end comps have this feature. While I like a lot of Presonus equipement I didn't love their studio pre-comp combo I…"

"Wayne, you have to be patient and methodical to locate noise. Start with the most basic setup you can. A  mixer and a pair of headphones, then add amp+ speakers; a mic cable, twist the mic cable, does it make noise? (I mean a real 'broke' noise,…"

"Alexis,
You are asking a lot! First you need to understand what each device is doing. If this sounds like too much, then you need to take your gear to a studio with an engineer you trust, set it up and then mark all the settings down and use them in…"

  • A contract? Nah. A modest alter with a delicately scented candle oughta do it.
    BWAhahahahahahahaaa!!
  • Well, I see so many comments, conversations, mystified "own studio" folks... and ALOT of information (good and bad) floating around. With you now on VU... I hope some of them get to connect with your depth of knowledge and know-how. Cause DAAAAANG it changed everything for me! Illuminating, to say the least. Plus you're so utterly practical about it all. Does that make me your agent now? Ha!!
