Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: TC Electronics' reverbs
« on: October 25, 2017, 07:09:30 AM »
Thanks for those suggestions. I didn't even think about that panning technique. I know Robert Rich used to take two versions of the same texture and detune one of them slightly, but I wouldn't have thought of panning. Maybe I could play around with different levels of delay layered together as well, maybe some super subtle modulation.

You just spurned some new ideas.

Excellent....

Good to hear you are enjoying the m300.

You might be able to 'extend' the reverb time if you set the time for max, but half the depth/intensity etc parameters, record it wet, record that back through the same settings a second time and then play with the dry and wet/wet track balances - you could try a slightly different reverb setting on the dry to merge the sounds together.

another idea that can work well is to record 2 different versions of similar effect and then play them back with each off centre - so panned somewhat left and right in stereo field.

It definitely takes time to get to really know elements of nature.

I met the same snake shedding it's skin in the same place for a few years when working in forestry - can't say I got to know it, but definitely felt blessed.

A real mixture of female voices:
 Annie Lennox, Lisa Hannigan, Laura Viers, Patti Smith, Elle King, Evanescence, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Agnetha Faltskog and others...

 ...with Mozarts requiem and White Noise - An Electric Storm...thrown in the midst for good measure

just played whatever the current track made me think of next - uncertain how the White Noise track The Visitations came into mind.....

Do you listen facing the speakers and/or standing between them facing the room?

A Hi-Fi dealer I visited (and got my current speakers from) thought I played in an orchestra as orchestra members often stand between the speakers to listen, because that is how they hear the music they play....

Definitely a very light and open space - and not full of other things....

I too thought it might be the panorama pic that made the speakers look so far apart.

Is there not a 'blank' or 'empty' space between the speakers or how far away are you able to sit to listen?

Inspired by the following BBC image - particularly at 20,000,000,000 years in the future....

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Cans.....Whats on your head?

Yep - that's the G cushions and they came with my headphones. The L ones are less comfortable than the G's.

However on one forum someone said the L's give a better sound as the headphones were designed to be a certain distance from the ear - something the G's don't (apparently) maintain....If you get the G's let us know how they compare - if you can hear a difference I would consider changing myself.

I can definitely wear mine for longer than an hour - on the comfort side I think slightly padded headband would help....

Seren these are what original came with my Grado Prestige SR 325's and what I recently got to replace the fluffier on ear ones.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006GCCO0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

These are uncomfortable, being over ear,  the headphone mechanics so to speak does make contact with the ear and after long periods, for me about an hour or so I begin to notice it.  Grado users seem to put up with this because the sound quality is worth it.
Mine has the newer g cushion shape and debating which to get - and do I get cheaper versions available on the internet?

Re Grado's - I did see a forum comment where somebody advised that the change from on ear to over ear also affected the sound quality, and that the on ears were much more uncomfortable.....so unsure what to get now...
best of luck getting the HD800's fixed

PS. what I'm actually doing is looking for somewhere to live where I can set the studio and music up properly so I can really relax and enjoy listening and recording music....

Moved house a year ago - have a room just for music 8) 8)

Have really enjoyed listening to music with enough space to give the sound air.

Started recording again about a month ago....

oo...sorry to hear about that - not nice.

I lost my previous Beyers when I got a feedback loop and had to choose what to turn down first - VS2480 or headphones....

I still have the beyers, but they buzz on one side if the bass frequencies hits a certain note or presence or tone.

Hope you get the amp fixed and replace the headphones with something that excites you.






had these 2 years now - still think they are fantastic. Though those Focals look very, very nice Julio

and still using them......though may need to get replacement foam pads - 25.
