“The LP’s ability to preserve the depth of the mix is frequently an advantage when mastering, because altering a band’s level does not move instruments forward or backward in the soundstage”. 😉

<p style=”text-align: left;”>Interesting. I’ve often been fond of shelf boosting some point beyond 10kHz and de-essing in the range of roughly 4kHz to 12kHz (all source dependant settings obviously) but honestly hadn’t considered driving up highs into a limiter. There’s a “cut, boost, cut, boost, cut, boost” technique a colleague put me up on awhile back that’s really helped open up the sound when it’s called for and I sometimes like to use a HF comp (like the Fusion offers) then boost what I want back in after.</p>
In reply to: Large diaphragm mikes versus small. Is there a winner?March 12, 2023 at 10:23 pm #5474
I had a funny smart ass comment but then I noticed the tags and now, with that context, the question makes more sense.
While I prefer to capture, lets say a large harp, with stereo SDCs on the room and an LDC near the strings; if I had to choose (maybe I’m out of preamps or something) I think I might prefer the close mic LDC because I can create the stereo SDC room mic sound in post with only the mono close LDC more easily than the other way around.
I know that’s probably more of an answer about mic technique than mic choice but I’m more prone to those particular mic choices for those purposes, so I suppose it answers the question too.

Could you share a little more detail about the modification? I’d love to try this out for myself.
In reply to: OMG! 7Zip is the bombMarch 12, 2023 at 8:45 pm #5472
Probably goes without saying but I guess our IT guy does know something afterall lol. He’s been dealing with some personal things so he hasn’t been in to “optimize” the current PC since its been built. He had told me I needed to install 7zip but WinZip was already installed so I’ve just been using that. I’ve been zipping to prevent errors, but hadn’t been paying attention to see if the files are bigger than with the old PC (which is now a server). I’ll have to take a look at that.
