Great River Me1nv Settings Thread

I dont trust my ears compared to all the experts on this forum. So my question is what buttons are pressed and what are the dials turned to when you guys are recording vocals? (tube mic so no phantom)

Also what is pressed when doing bass di?

The answer is basically going to be: Whatever works best. But a very vague guideline would be:

1. Turn the input up and the output down if you want a harmonically richer sound. Do the opposite if you want a cleaner sound.
2. The impedance button pushed in will typically brighten up the sound because it changes the loading on the input. If it sounds better, use it. If not, don't. It can be quite useful on DI'd bass I find.

This attitude is dooming you from the start!

What-ever sounds good for your source will be the answer.

I'm using mine with the loading button in 90% of the time. The other ones I hardly ever touch apart from phantom on/off.

But sometimes a little kind guidance can help somebody focus their ears on what the buttons actually do. THEN it's quite easy

Like today, where I tried to explain the parameters on a compressor to my students. No one got a clue until I explained what to listen for.
