...So a parametric EQ you set the shape of the curve, then that can be moved up and down (left/right) the frequencies but the overall shape remains intact? Actually no. In the case of a semi-parametric EQ that would be an accurate summary. But as this thread was originally querying that King Tubby ...

New spring reverb plug-in raises the bar

The Overloud Spring Age plug-in is not bad at all for a simulator. It still doesn't 'feel' like any real spring that I've ever used but it's quite possibly the best audio software plug-in I've tried (and I've tried most of them!) Seems like it was only relesed a short while ago. Check it out. It's r...

Recommended dub tracks

This thread seems like a popular one to resurrect on a regular basis, here we go again then. Dub cuts that had most impact on me and I would recommend to any newcomers, most of these ARE seminal. Old stuff: The Revolutionaries - Leggo Dub (good luck finding this!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj81...

Respect!

I'm still watching (though not feeling too 'massive' right now). Still waiting too. You weren't kidding about the slow revelation were you? :wink:

Behringer MX 8000 vs Fostex 820

Ever since Behringer moved their manufacturing to China the quality is terrible, both sonically and reliability. I know a few people with Behringer desks. Without exception all of them have issues - dead channels, distortion, faults etc, some since new. A studio owner friend once tried out *six* new...

Compressor questions

I used to tour 3630 units and for the money they're pretty flexible units and they sound good too. The main downsides for me (and probably not an issue for you) is that they are unbalanced on jack connectors, not XLR's, so the plugs would always fall out every day in transit. Also the external power...

Re: Analog or digital ?

one thing if you produce dub.... don't try to feedback a delay on it's own channel with a digital desk. That doesn't work.DC Well that rule certainly doesn't apply to all digital boards. I frequently send an effect return channel to itself for both delay & delayed pitch shift. You just have to be a...

Well I guess it was kind of a half rhetorical question and half wanting to get other's takes on a fundamental issue concerning live dub. I've had the luxury of rehearsing with a band in the past and apart from that often turning out to be more fun than the live show it's not always practical to do. ...

OK Mr. Sideway (or anyone really) here's a question for ya. If you have a live band situation and you're there as engineer because of your dub mixing skills, how can you approach it in a similar fashion to a studio mix? For me, a crucial rule of live engineering is that if a musician on stage is pla...

Hmm, not sure I was following the seminar too well there but certainly cool to hear an old hero and influence sounding like he approaches mixing with many years worth of his own experience and interpretation. We all have our own take on best practice and there are some rules we should follow even wh...
