  1. Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    'Hi Z' is the correct technical term as 'Z' is the formula for impedance in electronic calculations.
  2. Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    Orchid DI's are really excellent. Their technical performance is up there with the very best at a fraction of the price.
    I've used their stuff for years. Never had a failure.

    Re: Mic preamp for condenser

    The problem with the Ui16 preamps is the chip they used. There certainly IS a link between the "hiss" level and having phantom power engaged, however... it only manifests as you crank the gain right...
  5. Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    You can certainly go from a good 'acoustic' preamp direct into a high quality full-range powered speaker. The QSC K10's and K8's are ideal for this. It essentially gives you an all-in-one 'acoustic...

    Re: Mic preamp for condenser

    The Triton Fethead PHANTOM does work fine with the Ui16. Solves the excess noise issue. I have tested that myself.

    Re: Best Bluegrass Band Single Microphone?

    Sound reinforcement is a relatively undemanding application, in most respects. Hence, you can get very good sound from an SM57/58 (used correctly). Studio sound, and film/broadcast sound tends to...

    Re: Best Bluegrass Band Single Microphone?

    I think one reason the KSM's are popular is because they are very tough, well-engineered and stand up well to outdoor/live use. They are also very consistent. All mics have their own 'sonic...

    Re: Signal Channel

    1) Good condenser mic on a stand (preferred) straight into a QSC Touchmix.

    2) Audio Technica ATM-350 (second choice) also straight into the QSC.

    4) AKG C411 contact mic (only in really bad/loud...

  12. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Yes. I noted that too. Truly bizarre. I can only think he is badly confused.... somehow thinking he can levy a fee of some kind every time a Gibson is depicted or can impose conditions upon how it is...

    Re: Adventures in Clip-On Mics

    1) Superglue and some soft leather or similar glued to the outside faces of the clip.
    2) Roll off some low frequencies <200Hz and cut back a bit somewhat on the highs above 15KHz (though on the...

    Re: Adventures in Clip-On Mics

    Keep it simple.

    The AT mics are designed to run straight into your standard mixer channel (I use a QSC Touchmix) but as long as you have good preamps and phantom power anything will do... a...
  17. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Strange video. Peculiar angles of view. The bulging eyes and almost fanatical delivery does not create a very good impression (to say the least).
  18. Re: Any clues about this British-made mandolin?

    The work on the mandolin looks very clean and of good quality.

    The inlaid 'E' looks like someone's first attempt. Very much doubt that whoever made the instrument did that inlay.

    Re: Remic microphones

    The AT PRO 35 is a remarkable value. It is very nice little microphone indeed. The ATM 350 is really excellent. I use one of those myself. In fact, I found I was using it more than the DPA 4099. Both...

    Re: Best Bluegrass Band Single Microphone?

    Three points:

    1) There is no such thing as a 'best' microphone. There are a lot of good ones, some superb ones, and which is 'best' is very much open to personal taste, your technical...

    Re: Soundcraft Ui 16 mixer

    You would normally be OK with most condenser mics. Anything with an output level of >7mV/PA will be fine. This really only becomes and issue with low-output dynamic mics, such as the SM57/58 or...

    It is a circuit design issue. The Ui12 and Ui16 were not actually designed by Soundcraft. They 'bought the design in' from another company when they acquired it. There are some 'workarounds'. Use...

  25. Re: Condenser mic for live and home recording

    +1 on the Shure KSM 32. Works well on stage (room acoustics and monitor levels permitting) and is also good in the studio for both instruments and vocals. A very versatile and well-made mic. The...
