Rob Schnapf mixed that great-sounding Foo Fighters debut. He did not mix all those later Foo albums that sound like a buzzing refrigerator. Maybe Rob could have prevented the decline of commercial rock and roll.

Do the Burl converters live up to the marketing hype? I know you've had them for a little while now, curious about your opinion of them.

Hey man, are you using the Overstayer on Drum Bus and the 2500 on Parallel Drum Bus? You prefer the Overstayer on main Drum Bus over the API? Haven't heard that Overstayer in action - may have to check it out now.

thanks!

Yes! I'm so into the new single. Really excited for the record to come out. My past favorite from him is Smoke Ring For My Halo. Damn good.

Thanks for sharing

both on parallel drums.
But The SFE is doing the heavy lifting.today everything but the kick(w/ snare parallel 160)is running through it.great transient control/smoosh on drum buss.try one.

I never got into the 2500.
Don't why, just wasn't a vibe I dug, I guess

yeah i pretty much put mine in the classifieds after putting the SFE up.
its still here though,maybe more a stupid emotional attachment at this point.
also could never get the 2500 to work on full mix.

The 2500 was my only outboard compressor for a few years, so I definitely found ways to get great results out of it. I really dig chaining a vocal to both channels, compressing 4-5db on each channel with the thrust setting on medium, and in Old mode. 4:1. Especially with thinner vocals fighting some big muff guitars. Puts em right in your face without feeling too crushed and weird.

Yeah that's cool. I got ways of doing that already that i dig and I guess I wanted to use it as a stereo buss or parallel buss compressor and it never gave me the pre fatty tingle in any way.

Just installed a UAD Octo pcie card yesterday. First go with the UAD stuff. Was most interested in the reverbs like the EMT 140 Plate and Lexicon 224. Really excited about those. They feel great. Have never been satisfied with the Waves RVerb, which was always my goto. No experience with outboard verb unfortunately.

My card came with the UA LA-610 B channel emulation... and I gotta say, holy ****. The soft clipping you can get while pushing the preamp level sounded amazing on distorted guitars. Real cool.

Also, the Pultec collection sounds pretty damn great for a plugin.

You use any UAD stuff, Rob? I also have a lot of love for the Slate, Sound Toys, and Fab Filter stuff. Very helpful.

I don't have any UAD.
I wish
I have an older Mac.
Outta slots.
Actually I wish I had a real plate.
Altiverb lexicon Valhalla are my verbs besides the various real spring reverbs I might use.
And love the sound toys and slate neve eq.

Anyways, for those interested in the overstayer stuff, the modular channel is quite outstanding.
Rich harmonic thick classic ballsy girthy.
Pretty spectacular box.
I'm hoping to try on something other then bass and synth but I'm not having luck yet.

As soon as I sell some stuff that's next on my list of practical things to purchase.
It's pretty crazy. Covers like 4 outboard boxes.
Would be great to have a bunch of these on the various busses.
I have an AKG BX20 for sale if anyone interested in a great real spring verb.

Those Canadians are kind of stiff people, you know. They have a hard time cutting loose.

OK, this is a lot funnier in my mind, where I'm saying it with a Canadian accent.

There's another newer double rack space 2 channel thingy.
Eq,harmonics,filtering,compression.
All kind of in parallel but super interactive .
You can blend things at the end of the chain as well as the dry signal.
So cool.

The new Kurt Vile single sounds great, can't wait for the release. Loving the drums!

Care to share the vocal chain (recording/mixing)?

Thanks!
