  1. I was thinking maybe like one over head and on or near the kick/floor tom....so it's semi stereo. Think Led Zeppelin and weird panning haha. I have no problem having it panned weird but I agree that I need to have a mic at least near the kick...I guess I'll experiment with what I have.
  2. Also I played everything in songs- I'm not a drummer really so don't hate haha. And they were more tests/ideas so obviously not finished things- just to give an idea of the sound of drums/mics/focusrite.
  3. Ughhhh posted got messed up. Using two oktava 219 currently into focusrite 2i2 and ipad. Looking for a better pair for stereo recording or a stereo mic. Have MXL V57M and a pair of 603s I don't love. "Super indie" and "311 style jam" we're oktavas as OH and kick. Looking for a better more open sound. (Lots of EQ and comp on those to suit music and just make mics sound better. Tried ribbons- not good for my small concrete space. Looking for a natural sound between early rock (Zeppelin) and jazz. Don't wanna submix just want to work with two channels. And hopefully get decent stereo. "Recorderman" method did not work with those oktavas- sounded all sorts of wrong and phased.
  4. I ended up getting and modding a Gretsch g5222 cutting resistor 19 and getting nos tubes. May run it through an external can no point getting a better 6 inch speaker lol.
  5. I have my Vox AC4TVH and matching cab put nos tubes in it- actually like a 12AV7 for preamp. Anyway- my 64 6G6B Bassman is too loud and bright- so is my Mesa Trem O Verb half stack. I've sold off many other amps. If I could afford/find an original evil robot or an actual Magnatone I'd go for that. I want something dark- and gritty sounding. The Vox gets close but it's too "nice" sounding and the gain it has gets too fuzzy. I'm open to any cheap "sleeper" vintage Mps or any modern ones I may be missing. After watching many Phil X videos with the original tonemaster or the evil robot ones (not as cool) I want something that has that almost tweed/fender tone but more....thick and with less high frequencies.
  6. It was probably the Tonemaster if that's from 97... http://jeffsguitar.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Tone-Master-e1341353027131.jpg
  7. Is it just basic major scales? It sounds simple but honestly I'm one of those stuck on a few pentatonics scales people.
  8. Black/silver Fender Tonemaster 4x12 with V30s, sounds great all original, local pickup no shipping.
  9. Why would you compress the send, and do you mean compress the reverb bus track, or like the stuff before it hits the reverb? I'm using a Digi 001, with super old pro tools into a G3 B&W (overclocked to 400mhz! haha) powermac with OS9, sort of because my main computer with a Delta 66 and Kristal crashed-won't even boot, and the delta interface was having issues anyway. And also cause the setup (B&W G3 + matching 21inch CRT and delta for a total of around $185. I've been getting into older macs latley since the PC crash, hence I'm using an eMac in my room. But I guess my point is this, would it be worth it to invest in room mics? or should I just move my overheads a little further away, or should I just use plugins (I have digiverb that came with old protools)?
  10. With all the talk about room mics, and all that, how many current ish (within the last....15 years or so) CDs use "artifical reverb"? Also what do they use because most of the reverb plugins i've tried sound....akward and make things sound not as "real" as just dry. Any input on if CDs like 311s blue album, Godsmacks self first CD, Korns Issues, or stuff like that( Sorry I like the 90s), where you hear "ambience" is it from room mics, an outboard reverb unit, or plugins? Also is "cheap reverb" the weak link in most mixes more so then an ok EQ or compressor/limiter?
  11. Bought at Bose store factory renewed, have screw holes from being mounted, good if u were going to wall mount them anyway, have rubber feet on them currently, great shape, don't need them anymore, got a deal on AM3 cube set, price is 175 obo with in reason. Really don't want to ship, cause it so much of a good price then, I'm located in CT, anybody?
