Still waiting to hear an "excellent capture" from these toy mics  :iamwithstupid:


I posted links to at least ten of them a couple of months back...if not in this thread, then the other internal mics thread.

Sarah Peacock, Black Mountain, Peter Mulvey, and a good chunk of others.

you kids are all caught up in your cute-but-wrong responses and ignore the proof to keep running your fingers (nee:gums)

I haven't heard anything that sounded good, much less "excellent."

and I've got to bring up the Nak700's guy....didn't he make some post a ways back saying how he'd like to spend some money on something to prove a point, but he was too broke to do so?


yet here I am travelling the US (over 60 shows this year in nearly 20 states), multi-cam-ing and multi-audioing bands across all genres, and getting the job done?




that pretty much sums up to a tee what I'm saying.


buy a bunch of UNnecessary fancy-schmancy products for taping and sit at home broke, or push lo-fi equipment to the max with excellent results and do what I want, when I want, without money being an issue?



the bulk of you old fucks remind me of the first AA meetings I went to years back (8+ years ago, haven't had a drink since....or meetings/sponsors/steps in 6+ years), the "Stag mens group" in the basement of Sacred Heart Cathedral in Fairbanks.


pissing and moaning about (multiple) ex-wives, cranky as fuck, and all old.

really, really old.


I guess in your folks' case, while you lack getting inside of vagina in spades, at least your mic stands #DONTTALKBACK!!!!   :D :D :D :D :D

"awesome" Sturgill Schweppes recording upped ten MONTHS ago, with one hell of a setlist: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=582295


furbys' "shitty" Sonics Sturgill recording upped not even 10 days ago...: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=602332



yet mine has 20 more pulls than the Schweppes one, and is increasing every single day 

(we won't mention the nearly 100 pulls from TTD).




now WHY do you think that is???


inordinate amounts of fluffing from furby, or simple lies from the Schweppes lobby?

shit, I have to go back to '14 on dime to find a Sturgill audio pull that is above my snatches.





I'd have to go with "B" on this one....

Eh, if you hadn’t intentionally made it so thin it would be serviceable. Why not give your engineer a full signal to work with?

After you guys figure out how to get the 1 Tascam hand held recorder set up correctly then you will be ready for the next step. Running 4 Tascam hand held recorders at the same time plus shooting vid on 3 phone cameras while getting stank on your hang low with middle aged midwestern womens. Any effort short of this will result in a recording that is 75/85% as good as an elite stand taper recording.

mic stands and "audio only" are SOOOOOO late '90's.....stable video is where it's at, multi-cam even moreso


LOLZ. 

I was recording video likely before you were knee high to a grasshopper there whippersnapper (ever seen a VHS-C?).  Most of those sounded "90% as good as" or whatever that shifting standard of standardness is (just plugging in a compatible mic). 

These days for me I'm over video (it's so 80's to me).  I rarely bother unless the musician asks me to and I feel like dealing with it.  I'd much rather enjoy being there experiencing the show real time and hear the show later in really nice quality if I want to listen to it again. 

Priorities and times change... 

Gear:
Audio:
Schoeps MK4V
Nak CM-100/CM-300 w/ CP-1's or CP-4's
SP-CMC-25
>
Oade C mod R-44  OR
Tinybox > Sony PCM-M10 (formerly Roland R-05) 
Video: Varied, with various outboard mics depending on the situation

He sends 16 bit internal mic sources to be synced to his video to dorrcoq; Steve has likely never actually processed, EQed, FLACed, md5ed/ffpED, then upped and seeded a single one of his own shows, much less synced video to audio.

He loves to puff his chest out, but recording shows with stolen decks and with tickets that others buy for you and hard drives and SDs that others supply because you haven't supported yourself outside of growing pot and selling old merch in your adult life (we can get your ex-girlfriend in on this, if you wann get down...) while nailing middleaged Midwestern nappy D is his only source of pride...

He doesn't understand processing; he's never done his own.

That's why he rolls all the bass off and records in 16b!   

He simply doesn't know any better, and woe to anyone who dares to try and tell anything to The One Who Already Knows Everything Ever About Taping.

I haven't been able to reconcile the desire for stable video yet no concern about using audio that has noticeable phasing. Wouldn't the same standards apply for both captures? You can mock hippy tapers all day but if they have their mics stationary on a stand they aren't introducing phasing to their recordings unless it was caused by a blowing in the wind. The answer my friend is blowing in the wind. The answer is blowing in the wind.  :headphones:
