Re: Portable Digital Audio Recorders -- Recommendation please (reply)
I like my Zoom H4, though the current H4n is probably better. It has good mics, phantom power for external condensers mics, and works as an audio to digital converter to go straight to computer via USB. They are popular with the indie...

Re: Portable Digital Audio Recorders -- Recommendation please (reply)
How many simultaneous input channels do you need? What about simultaneous outs! Do you need phantom power? Do you need overdub capability? Do you plan to mix in the box or in your computer? What you want is available. Zoom probably makes...

Re: Which preamp/DI (reply)
Exactly what I was hoping you would say Kev. It is a great pedal ( with electric especially my old 335) but wasnt 100% sure of it with acoustic. Again many thanks for your time and patience ( and expertise) Graeme PS Just as an aside the...

Re: Which preamp/DI (reply)
I can't see why not, Graeme. According to the manual, "The Boost ranges from 0 to 20 dB, and is very useful in giving that extra kick for solos, PLEASE NOTICE the boost works both with or without the distortion activated". Presumably,...

Re: macbook/ipad recommendation for recording (reply)
Neither screen is big enough, IMO. Fortunately, external monitors are inexpensive. You don't need one for recording but for editing and mixing, you want as much real estate as possible. With a MBP, you can put you mixer on ene screen and...

Re: macbook/ipad recommendation for recording (reply)
There is a big difference in price and power with the 13 vs 15 Mac book pro. I need to buy one as well soon. Mike, do you think the 13 Mac book pro retina with 16gb is a good choice? It's hard to figure out the sweet spot on macs. The 15...

Re: macbook/ipad recommendation for recording (reply)
Thanks Mike, I think I'll look into either the R-16 or 24. Do you tend to use the 16 or the 24 more often? I do have a Mac desktop so I will probably use that for mixing. What is it that you prefer with Digital Performer versus GB?...

Re: Which preamp/DI (reply)
The feature I like most about the EDM-1, Graeme, is its optional 18V power supply which I recommend buying with the preamp and using whenever possible. This really lifts the audio performance to professional level and distinguishes the...

Re: macbook/ipad recommendation for recording (reply)
Mixing in a Mac is the way to go – hands down. I use Digital Performer but GarageBand (free) to Logic Pro X ($200) ... really, it depends on your needs. An iPad or iPhone is great if recording up to 2 tracks with a stereo mic. Here are...

macbook/ipad recommendation for recording (topic)
I think I'm finally at the point of switching to digital recordings for demos, writing, fleshing out ideas, etc. Tapes are getting harder to come by and the fear of messing up a take or taking the time/tape to take an idea in every...
