Need warmth, suggestions?
« on: March 14, 2005, 07:13:39 PM »
I'm looking for something warmer to run with my Audix 1290 cards.  Not many people running these rigs, so tapes aren't plentiful.  Suggestions?  Sonosax SX-M2, MP-2, modSBM?  Pre or A/D?  A wmod UA-5 would be my last option for stealth reasons only.  I'll mostly be festival taping outdoors under tents.  Thanks.

what Brian said, if changing your sound is what you are looking for different mics will change things the most.....modsbm-1 will warm things up, so would a mini-me

there could also be some computer-based plug-ins that have the effect you are looking for. Sorry but can't suggest anything specific.

Not knowing the mics, BUT a Sax and a modSBM1 would do the trick I think  ;)

my modsbm-1 is quite warm.
Tickets are dead to me.  Except the ones I have, don't have, and lost.  Not to mention the ones you have, don't have, and lost.   And the ones that other dude has, doesn't have, and lost.  Let me know if you need some tickets, I'm happy to oblige.

Thanks for the info.  I had been running Audix 1290 > pmod UA-5 > M1 and found it to be too bright in most instances, but not all. Could have just been the venue/PA/source, but I've already sold the UA-5 and am ready for another pre and/or A/D.

I have considered changing mics, but to get the same size and similar quality, I would probably have to invest another $1000, and I'd still need a pre/A/D. Budget is $500-1,000, so a V3 or Mini-Me is not likely (or stealthable).  Maybe a modSBM is the next incremental step, though I'm still open to other suggestions.  Sorry, can't post samples, snail mail only.

why didnt you just have the p-mod converted to warm mod?

The charge to re-mod was $65.  Instead, I sold the pmod for $500.  That'll get me a brand-new wmod if I choose to go that route.  Simple economics.  That, and I want something smaller.

i run the audix 1290s > v3 and i agree with you, they're a little too bright and crisp for my liking too.  I have found bumping up the lowend in post to help out a lot tho.  I usually boost 6db around the 80hz mark throughout the recording.  Sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more depending on the venue.

Definitely not a cureall, but until i get different mics it seems to do the trick.  Might be helpful to your recordings until you get something warmer.


Because nothing says "I have lots of money and am sort of confused as to how to spend it" like Bose.
