Lets all use SSL or Neve boards (im sure we all have that money)

Only analog comps and ONLY OTB mixing for me!

Never use a mixbuss compressor ITB

"OTB, never"

Ren plugins sound muddy and hazy

Everything i write is point form

Analog is the only way

Did i mention i always write point form?

My answer to a question is always one word

That word is: depends

And no I dont care to elaborate

Ask me any question:

My answer is Maybe or

Depends

Music is Vague

So are my answers

Sounds familiar?

I think it only comes off as arrogance sometimes because of the limitations of communication in text only. He's honest and answering from where he's coming from. Some of his responses are curt, but he usually provides some excellent insight too. Sometimes the truth hurts.

Granted I would like to have access to the gear that he does.

I'd rather have the skills that Thrill has than the gear he uses.

Keep in mind that h'es been on this board since its inception - he's answered pretty mich all of the questions a dozen or more times.

Sometimes you want to participate in the forum, but you get tired of seeing the same questions over and over.

There are no stupid questions - only stupid people.

It's a common practice in hiphop to start a pissing contest with whoever is considered the top dog... young bucs do this to try and get the big name to respond and make a name for themselves... lots of careers were built this way.

to contrast.. thrill may be arrogant (makes no diff to me if he is), but he's an informative read.. while you're just arrogant. given a choice i'll take my arrogance with some beef.

LOL,

"thethrillfactor gets away with rudeness. Why?"


Let's go moan zone!


There are some people here who pretend to have authoritative audio opinions and it's veterans like thethrillfactor and Fletcher who set them straight, esp. on tech and historical issues.


They have their gruff sides, but it's because they care about the craft. And one can take it all with a grain of salt... or a whole mine...

I Think Thrill is extremely OPINIONATED LOL but only partially arrogant/cocky (he is in NY).

And I think he will agree with this.


The funny part is you guys who call him a veteran without ever having heard a mix or even seen his rack.

Of course if you know what you are talking about, you can read his posts and tell that HE knows what he's talking about.

BUT I dont think that's the case for everyone here.


(Again though this is the internet and evey thing should be taken with a grain of salt and tested on your OWN EARS as I'm sure Thrill would agree. He obviously does what works FOR HIM and you (the guy that started the thread) Should do the same Do what works for you.)

no ssl, I meant forum vet; I have no idea about his body of work. If he shows us his "rack" I'll be the first in line...heh

Like you said, it's what he says that earns him respect from newer people like myself.


Hope that clears that up.


PS: I actually consider you a forum vet too... You don't talk about stuff you don't understand.

Arrogant?

Well, silly me, I always enjoyed Thrillfactors posts 'cause they seemed so open, honest and downright friendly to me. Not kidding. Guess I musta skipped the arrogant ones.

And as to his technical knowledge, anytime he's discussing a piece of gear that I know well, I recognize the comments of someone who has also spent considerable time with that item. In other words, he knows the gear.

I kinda see Thrill as the "Dear Abbey" of Gearslutz.

He has strong opinions of what he likes and what he doesn't like. So do a lot of people here.

If I don't like it, I can tune it out. Why does what someone else think bother me? If someone thinks Neve 1073's are crap, what do I care?

Live and let live, be at peace with your own life and do your own thing and let others do theirs.

Amen to that also.....and while you're at it (PM'ing him) ask him to tell you his discography before you make judgemental statements like that (Mr. beatzz) tutt

Uhm beatzz you said you're prepared for heat so be it .
it's all about state of mind.Your decisions and taste are defined by your surrounding ,expirience ,age ,culture,genetics etc .For start we can set following scene :
Emagine you're working with behringer and mackie stuff only and you're 18 years old .You like mackie better for some reason after a while and you cant exactly say why but you do .Then after a while someone brings smth better like portico or whutever and you're shocked how much better it sounds then your mackie (i'm not "dissing" your setup this is fiction about some john doe somewhere - will explain - patience please ).More you work you buy/sell stuff and you start wishing that portico you once heard - after a while you buy it - you're shocked again and countereffect is that you start hating your behringer compared to portico expirience ....yadda,yadda fast forward
20 years later you've been working on every piece of crap man made for mangling audio - it's what you do - during that time you bought /sold ****loads of expensive gear and made YOUR setup - you choose the best ,you got really fine monitors/room where quality of gear is highly exposed when you're doing your work .After some time you realise there's no more effects to buy - you bought them all
How the hell now do you decide which one to use for next mix-to-be-done-yesterday-or-they'll-hang-me-in-central-park ?
By your taste and instinct and knowing which chain does best thing for your mixes
Behringer and mackie are long gone and replaced with best chain for doin fast and juicy work .
Anyway your perspective towards audio changes and evolves (towards the better i hope ) over time .Once you expirience driving jaguar after hyndai your perspective about cars changes - and you cant tolerate someone saying hyndai is as good as jaguar cause you know it's NOT - you were driving both .
Hehe to be continued by someone else i hope ,i'm tired - enjoy

I'd gladly have a beer with Thrill

All true...


You've got me down to a T.



Except...



this quote "Ren plugins sound muddy and hazy".



I don't feel that way about the Ren plugs anymore...



I feel they are down right awful.



I am a analog diehard this is true and i use very little plug ins. Its just my personal preference and nothing personal is meant by it. And i type in double space because its easier to read. Also i despise reading threads that are full of long paragraphs and don't really say anything.


If you need me to clarify a statement or post further just ask or PM me... ok?

Hey Thrill,

Does that mean that you answer PMs?
Once I send you one with an easy technical question and didn´t receive reply, eventhough seemed like you had time to post.
Felt arrogant indeed.

Ruphus,


Yes i try to answer them.


Sometimes it tough because i get a lot and i want to answer them as best as i can.


Some questions i just can't answer(based on a subjective opinion) and some i just won't because its something i just see as lazy engineering( you posted you like X and i just bought it. Ok what are your favorite settings? how do you use it ? With what combinations etc?).


I just don't personally believe in "internet arm chair engineering" and i won't encourage it either. Its just not the way i was brought up in the studio. I come from an era in the studio where you had to prove yourself.

And sometimes i read a PM in passing(on my way out from the studio) and i simply just forget or don't have time in the moment to answer.


My apologies if i didn't respond.

Thrill has been incredibly helpful in response to my postings and has given me some excellent information. I really owe a lot to him! I also enjoy his writing style.

Apologies accepted.

Yet, for the record: I don´t think to have asked in the Please-do-it-all-for-me manner.

Quote:
I would be greatful to receive some advice before it comes in. For instance the seller says the unit would deliver on both of its outs per channel. He says many wouldn´t know that, but it would be sounding much better using both outs and mix, as them being components ( of the two DSPs?)

Are you recording 4 tracks for stereo / 2 tracks for a mono, or how do you do use it in your rig?

My other question concerns the path, whether you have tried the digital one too. I expect that going the analog way and feeding the R880 through good convertors ( Lavry blue here ) to be best, since the convertors in the Roland ought to be old stuff and probably also working on either 44.1 or 48k / 16 bit while my source material will be 96k tracks. ... But who knows if there might be a certain reason to use the Rolands onboards (?)

Thanks for any tip you can give me on it!
I have received lots of requests on behalf of this device and other things and have done my best to answer them all as good as I could, because as long as it isn´t really totally lazy ( which none of them appeared to be like that to me ) I don´t think it would hurt anything to answer at least.

Just saying.
