  1. It seems you want to build your limiter, let us know how it turns out. I would suggest a 10db pad on the Schoeps would be more effective. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1132547-REG/schoeps_pad_10ni_10_db.html/
  2. If the signal is distorted in the mixer how will an outboard limiter help ? You are monitoring the peak metering ? I would try a pad in front of the mixer before I started soldering. Al
  3. Is it the Vark pre amp part of this problematic signal flow ?
  4. My favorite brand logo has to be Telefunken and I was looking to find a T-shirt when I came across this Immersive Studio Experience at The Power Station NYC - I I was in this room mid 80's and it was an incredible space. It had a unique drum sound because of the rotunda. http://powerstation.nyc/ History of Telefunken https://www.telefunken-elektroakustik.com/history https://www.telefunken-elektroakustik.com/immersive-studio

  6. The music that spoke to me the most seemed to come from the triangle of Memphis, Nashville and Muscle Shoals. Jimmy Johnson was one of the originators of what came to known as the Muscle Shoals Sound. They used to get paid $25 per completed and everyone is happy side. He was the rhythm guitar player and he would find a place to add a little something that would just go to the root of the song. He was often the engineer and was the producer of record for the Rolling Stones. As musicians it wasn't ever about them, It was always about the song.

  8. We had a 1st camera nicked as old 20 frame, after he forgot to reset the frame rate after a chase scene. We had gone to lunch and came back and shot and completed an entire 3 page scene before he realized his mistake.

  10. When I heard Heartbreak Hotel, I knew what I wanted to do in life. It was as plain as day. All I wanted to do in the world was to be able to play and sound like that. Everyone else wanted to be Elvis, I wanted to be Scotty. ... Keith Richards Scotty left the road and moved to Nashville where he built Music City Recorders and got more in to engineering than guitar playing. I act plus a found this website just filled w/ Elvis facts plus a studio section, discography, his guitar and lots of pictures http://www.scottymoore.net/
  11. Here are my Net 90 rates...
  12. I am a big fan of Kim and Charlie Parra. They have my back.
  13. This was a concert at Vanderbilt University in 1987 that was part of a Cinemax Special. Guests included Mark Knopfler, Emmy Lou Harris, The Everly Brothers, Willie and Waylon, Micheal McDonald and a band of Nashville's best musicians. I tried to get in but I was not Music City royalty, so no seat for me. Enjoy.
  14. The operators green monitor that just gave a suggestion of what the camera was seeing.
