Solid choice, do have fun with building and especially using the thing!

How much did you get it for?
Did it include all the components as well?

You should read the introduction to recording sticky.

The PCB + components (including the sidechain mod!) cost me about $330. Still need to order the chassis, though, that should be another $175ish give or take. I may replace the electrolytics (no-names, Aishis I think) with Nichicons.

Hmmm... I'll have to check it out! Though I didn't even pay that much for Pro 1 and 2 combined

Well knowing DAW's they'll do a sale at some point. Apparently they're going for a "composition friendly" angle with the new version.

If it's anything like logic x's songwriting tools or however they decided to call them, count me out.

Logic 9 had the best midi editor I could find, but x's really let me down.
Still tho x has a lot of advantages, so now I use each one half of the time...

Anyway, let's wait and hope it's interesting.

This place sure is quiet these days. My band just have vocals and lead guitar left to record of our new album, I'm mixing it and handled some of the tracking (can't do drums or proper vocals at home) and considering documenting a lot of the process - I was gonna before but things happened at the time that put me off finishing it - would anybody actually be interested in reading a write up of the whole thing?

I'll get to it then, might not be as in-depth as the other one started (going on about pre-production and everything) but I'll put everything I remember in etc. Will probably be more like a series of chatty posts than a guide, too, because I don't have the time to make a proper fancy write-up

Sounds cool!

So... I just finished tracking samples for 10 snare drums. Started out as a project for me to decide what to downsize to. After beating on them all in a performance, i ddcided that wasnt a really fair comparison, so I decided to go the more scientific route...

All 10 drums with bottom head tuned to 380Hz and the fundamental pitch of the top/bottom combo ranging from 170Hz in 10Hz increments up to 230 (on most, some wouldn't go that high). Sample 10 hard hits and 16 cross stick, plus a small solo performance at each pitch.

Definitely had some interesting results...

I own some snares that are upwards of $6-700 new and many of the expensive ones are at the bottom of my list for tone, being beat out by some that cost less than $100!

Still gotta cut up the hits but I'll be sure to share results and you're all welcome to the raw wav files.

^ as much as that comparison is scientific, different shells respond differently to tunings depending on their resonant frequency - when doing a comparison like that you should remove the heads and hoops, check the resonant frequency of the shell and tune the heads accordingly.

That's what I find working best at least.

On an unrelated note, I finally bought a pair of HS8's!
Yay!
Will do a NGD thread soon.

That wouldn't really help to show the weak points of each snare, though. It would also bias people's opinions based on the pitch, rather than the actual tone at that pitch. That's why I recorded the snares in such a large variety of pitches, so people can form their own opinions on the drums at each pitch and decide which they find the most versatile.

I just finished cutting up all of the samples (1400 hits takes FOREVER) and I'm very surprised. I almost always tune my snares fairly low... but I'm definitely going to be tuning higher now. Many of them really come to life once they're over 200Hz, which is interesting, as I don't hear many snares tuned that high at all

Hi guys just wanted to ask some clarification on the rules here.

I was going to get a thread up advertising my mixing to people here. I did do this before and as it was all for free there were no issues. What I am wondering is can I still get a thread up here even though I am promoting a paid service, even if I am offering like one mix for free or something?

If this is not allowed, would it be better for me to post in the Classifieds subforum?

Cheers.

As you've got a link about it in your sig, isn't every post you do everywhere advertising your services?

True yes, but I don't post on here that often the only time I really use it is when I have free time at work.

If it's an issue then I won't do it it's not problem, just wondering if it was allowed.
