Re: New flat - room acoustics questions

just my two cents, i think the poster who advised aiming the speakers against the angled wall has the right idea... you want to make sure your listening position is more or less symmetrical. Personally, I'd probably put the desk up against the wall with the angle.

Re: The Sound of Very Low Frequency Notes

just out of curiosity, why is this? is it something to do with the physics of speakers? A metronome at 240 bpm IS playing at 4 hertz. A recording of it is doing the same - you hear the individual ticks as events. Those events are like a PWM square wave with a narrow pulse. So you can hear it! Woody...

And remember that almost no loudspeakers on Earth can reproduce a legitimate 4Hz wave at a high enough amplitude that humans could perceive it through their bodies (a phenomenon known as haptics).

Re: The Sound of Very Low Frequency Notes

i'm not the guy to ask about the specifics of the science of what's going on b/c I'm only referring to my common sense understanding here. basically 4 hz is way below the threshold of human hearing. if it were a sine (100% fundamental and no harmonics), you'd simply hear nothing, even though the spe...

The Joys of Producing Rap Beats

Hi everyone, This is a thread to encourage everyone here to try their hand at making rap beats, especially when you've run into blocks in producing your real/serious art (not that beats can't be serious art, but you get what I mean). I've recently gotten back into it after many years away, and I'm d...

Re: Please have a listen and tell me if I’m on the right track

definitely a cool sound you're putting together there... my only suggestion would be to add a bit of vibrato/subtle pitch modulation to the synthesizers and maybe the guitar. the synthesizers are in such perfect tune, while the guitar has all the guitar-specific things related to intonation etc. thi...

Re: The Sound of Very Low Frequency Notes

sounds like you're clipping in the signal path somewhere... a sine wave should be completely clean. unless you're talking about notes that are literally inaudible, at which point you're hearing the peak of each cycle of the waveform without the "blurring" effect that occurs when they repeat fast eno...

Re: Benefits of recording to reel to reel

sonic benefits? depends on what you're going for. if you're looking for the qualities imparted by recording to tape (softened transient response, softened high frequency content, possibly some saturation depending on how you drive it), you will certainly find a benefit to recording to tape before yo...

I am just going to edit this bc it didn't really make sense. basically I was commenting that the first word on tweez is "Steve". I think that says a lot about authorship over the sound of the album.

How'd you find "the one"?

Hello everyone in this cozy little corner of MW. My question for today is... your #1 guitar, the one you reach for most, the one you associate with yourself as "guitarist"... how'd you find it?

I would recommend a TL806 w/ an EVM12L :tu: Super high wattage speaker, ported cab that is tuned to the exact speaker... these can be acquired quite cheaply second hand; Mesa makes a version, lots of small manufacturers as well.

Sure thing! I'd definitely give the cab sim a shot directly into your Motu before you decide to switch it off... that kind of tech has gotten really advanced and you might find it in fact sounds better than your actual cab! It simulates perfect micing and a nice room ambience, both of which are bugg...

Since the Iridium has cabinet simulation stuff going on, you don't want to go the traditional poweramp into guitar cabinet route... that would mean you're getting the Iridium's cabinet simulation going through an actual guitar cabinet. This would likely give you a weird, muffled EQ curve that you wo...

I own and really like this one: Walrus Audio Julia Chorus/Vibrato second this... one of the few vibrato pedals which, when set to 100% vibrato, doesn't result in signal loss due to the bucket-brigade circuitry. i think it's due to an internal buffer or some kind of gain boost.

Maybe a Jensen bass punch speaker? That might suit my needs better, come to think of it, and be able to take more of a beating from the harsh transients of a drum kit.

Hi everyone, I'm looking to assemble a non-traditional "PA", and I would like feedback, comments or suggestions about it.

The pedals are expecting instrument level signal and you're feeding it a line level signal. That coupled with the fact that your sends are almost certainly balanced connections while the pedal is expecting unbalanced is where this is coming from. A re-amping device from Radial would help you, or you...
