New album - King Tide

New album from my hybrid guitar/electronic/acoustic post-rock/shoegazer project. Bandcamp: https://abeautifulmachine.bandcamp.com/album/king-ti...

How many permanent patchbay connections, if any, are required for the Filterbank 2 aside from the usual mono in and out? I'm about to set up a permanent studio patchbay and need to sort out the cabling in the next few days before the Filterbank arrives. SFB2 has single mono in and dual out, one for...

Yeah with feedback stuff you've got to keep it super subtle. The magic is in the sub-millimetre range around the feedback point. The trick is finding that point, then massaging things ever so slightly so they revolve around it.

Had a DRM for a while recently. Honestly the only real thing that moved me was the kick - certainly not 909 thunky but a really nice bass bloom. Rest of the channels were ok, but very narrow sweet spot that, for me, is better served by samples. Couldn't justify the cost for a single (albeit nice) ba...

I had not heard Emptyset before, enjoying the sounds. I must say I think they are a lot more interesting than the Haus Arafna stuff posted. My techno stuff is a little less "noise" but I can definitely relate to their approach - I tend to feed very simple sequences with maybe 2 - 4 voices through co...

Don't do it Why not? As far as I know it all depends on the load of your gear, and the capacity of your power strips.

Individual channel outs ("direct") were very common in the days of tape/digital multitrack. Maybe not so common on newer consumer stuff. The Allen and Heath ZED series have direct outs on all channels, I think they are post-EQ too. Other than that older boards from A&H, Soundcraft, Mackie, Tascam et...

I was briefly excited about the Deluge until I found out it only has a stereo output. Then again so does the Digitakt, which is why I'm stuck with the OT for now. Shame, some of us like to process outside the box :doh:

In my ideal world, I'd buy a long roll of George L cable and tons of their 1/4" connectors. Could easily then make your audio cables exactly the length you want to eliminate some of the clusterf*ck. Of course, that only solves audio. Power and MIDI cabling is still a nightmare. I like the tube idea...

Ten Four on the swearing

1) decide to arrange things in a U shape to minimise gear creep and facilitate one-spot reach
2) spend days, days! Working out optimum gear distribution
3) realise the U configuration requires much longer cable lengths (and thus more cable mess)

Argh damn cables. Hate the damn things, but love hardware too much to not have them in my life. I rewired my studio the other night. Should say nights, as it took three.

Correct Sound Sunn preamp clones

Picked up one of the Beta/Model T clones today. Immense sound, tube loveliness and SO MUCH BASS.

Even straight into the computer and a basic speaker sim it sounds fantastic.

Anyone else got one of these (or anything else from the same manufacturer)?

Or a handful of channels, couple of analog fx, and a bit of effort.
