Re: Pickup options for classical (reply)
Im not a classical guitar player, but I have K&K Pure pickups in my four guitars and my mandolin. They are excellent, and no batteries or pre-amps in the instruments. They make a pickup specifically for classical guitars.K&K Pure...

Re: Pickup options for classical (reply)
HI: You might try posting this in the classical section too. All I have is the Cordoba with a built in Fishman UST. If I was starting from scratch I would go with something else, but for backing up Christmas singalongs it is just fine....

I've been watching the Gravel Road videos. Really enjoy wathing these kids over the last couple years just get better and better. I'm going to buy the CD I listened to some samples and liked it. It will be exciting to see where they go...

Re: Thoughts on recording a cd (reply)
Yeah, that's the way to do it... get signed to a record label! Why didn't anyone think of that? Seriously, you're not kidding when you say "a lot has happened." What a terrific outcome!

"I use the same old Shure SM-58 I bought in 1984...." I bought my same old Whirlpool larder fridge in 2002 and it still looks fine, but it has just breathed its last and I'm told it's beyond economic repair. Despite inflation, its...

Mike, I've read your mic recommendations before, but can't recall them.  I'd be interested in re-reading your take on how some of the different flavors (in the SM58 price range) might impact this issue.

Re: 3-Band EQ (reply)
I use the same old Shure SM-58 I bought in 1984.... obviously I haven't experimented much on that count.  I do think I got some added clarity when I rolled off the bass.  But as you said, what I mainly learned in doing that was that...

Here's that article: http://www.axiomaudio.com/blog/audio-oddities-frequency-ranges-of-male-female-and-children%E2%80%99s-voices/ I am one of the few singers in the world who has useable notes at 55Hz (that's A1 or the A below the bass...

Re: 3-Band EQ (reply)
You don't say which vocal mic you're using but they differ widely. One singer's burnished gold can be another's rusty iron, so it's worth trying a few to see which one does your voice the most favors.Also, the low frequency response of...

Re: 3-Band EQ (reply)
Thanks Kev and Mark.  I broke my own rule by tweaking more than one knob in a band practice... but that one-tweak-per-practice rule gets so tedious, I got impatient.  I think I just need to dial back the Treb and just hear what the lift...

Re: 3-Band EQ (reply)
Yes, there's a natural tendency for bands who do their own sound to think of mixing in a predetermined and rather static way, simply because adjustments are difficult if not impossible to make by a performer without temporarily ceasing...

Re: 3-Band EQ (reply)
You hit the equivalent of the "more me" knob. This works best when only one person does it. Was the overall sound musical? Was any unpleasant distortion introduced! Did you like the result? As Kev indicates, taking what you did out of...

Re: 3-Band EQ (reply)
The question is a lot more complicated than it might appear, partly because human hearing is more sensitive at Mid than at Bass and Treble frequencies and also because sound waves carry less energy at higher frequencies than at lower...

3-Band EQ (topic)
Each channel on my PA has a 3-Band EQ.  Last time I played I boosted Mid +3db and Treble +3db on my vocal channel.The recording has my voice on top of the mix, but in order to really hear the effect of the new EQ curve (as opposed to...

Re: New PC for recording (reply)
My favorite Mini is the 2011 or 2012. Ihe '11 has USB 2; the '12 has UB 3 – both have Thunderbolt. Unlike the later minis, these are expandable. Even a Core2 Duo will work, if you can find an affordable i7, you want it because of the...
