A pair of Genelec 1032As. The studio has room treatment but done by me rather than a professional.

Have you recorded voices/acoustic instruments in real rooms, rather than synths/synthetic spaces, through them? That might reveal a difference :hmm:

edit: 'difference', not implying better/worse.
I'll mic up my bagpipes and give it a whirl.

Re: Can you hear the difference between audio interface A/D converters?

My opinion is that if the converters are the weakest link in your audio chain, then upgrading will make a noticeable difference. As a hobbyist, my attitude is to buy the best you can reasonably afford and move on. I agree with you on the good chain advice. I upgraded to the Burl as I had just chang...

Can you hear the difference between audio interface A/D converters?

My first ever audio interface was a MOTU 828 MKII which I bought back in October 2004. In those days I was just messing around and not really finishing anything I'd class as a proper track. I never had a problem with its A/D converters but as the years went by I got a proper job and had some money s...

Nice one bro! By track mode u mean track write correct?
No I mean track mode. If you look at a TB303 you'll see "Track" and "Pattern" modes. Each mode has a write and play section.

Pattern and track mode on the TT303 works the same as an original TB303 with regards to how many octaves you have.

Re: 303 Audio Effects

Nice track. That 303 line sounds pretty clean to me, you won't need to put any effects on your TT303 to get that general sound, just make sure you've got it set to square wave obviously. I hear (probably( four patterns chained together. I usually quite a bit of compression on the 303 as the volume c...

Re: What room treatment are you using?

One of the most interesting things about reflections I heard, I think it was from the above Bobby Owsinski Yotubue video I posted, is that you don't normally need to treat the ground at all as our brains expect reflections from the ground because we're always standing on the ground (or a platform of...

Re: What room treatment are you using?

might be worth looking at multiple subwoofer configs for your room, using 2-4 of them can help fight the modes without making your house look like a crazy persons I've heard mixed reports about using subwoofers. Most of the advice seems to be they're not normally a good idea in a studio for making ...

Re: What room treatment are you using?

Speakers are close to the wall which surprised me, but it seems to be the best position for them in terms of bass response. They are sealed boxes. I had a similar experience with the Genelec 1032As. I had them out a bit from the wall first and wasn't hearing the bass properly, pushed them back agai...

What room treatment are you using?

Room treatment is a boring topic for a lot of people because it's not an exciting synth or compressor etc, but I find it fascinating as I want to hear my mixes properly so I was wondering what room treatment you use and if you feel it helps?

Re: Sonarworks studio edition - help me put my mind at ease!

I'm not sure what your room is like, but the average normal room in a house with no treatment will have standing waves issues which will cause the bass to sound louder at certain frequencies. Bass traps help with this. If you look at your Sonarworks graph you'll see what frequencies it's cutting and...

Re: Higher end/vintage small mixers

I have an SSL X-Desk and X-Panda. I really like them but they have no EQ and only two mono aux sends and two stereo aux returns. They are very clean and can deal with very loud signals very well (I've gone direct from modular gear into them without any problems). The inputs are all DSUB so you'll ne...

Re: Does Serge make sense for Noob?

My first modular was a Serge Animal panel and it took me a while to wrap my head around the DTG (basically a slimmed down DUSG) and even now years later I'm still not 100% on how it works but I still love using the Serge and am up to four panels now. Since then I've also gotten a lot of Eurorack and...
