Hedd 192

Jules et all,

Checked out the Hedd 192 today and it looks cool.
Jules, you think this would really help on the back end of the 2trk. mix. Can I go in digital from the board to the 192 and out into the Mac. Will it sound as good going in dig.????

OH yes!

Right now I have it 'collecting' the the analog mix outs from an SSL comp getting fed via my Dangerous 2 Buss, I am adding a fair amount of Pentode & Tape on the 192 (7&7) this is going back into PT where it

a) gets printed at 24 bit
b) can be sent dithered out to make CD's

I also track via the Hedd

I have it set up so I can A/b my mix & CD's via the heads D/A's

So the Hedd is a SEPERATE D/A unit as well as A/D for my mix..

If I switch off the Hedd I want to jump out of the window!

... so I don't.

Well ****,

Sounds like I have to have it.
My other question though is, I'm using a digital board. Will I go into the Hedd via gigital or analog. Sorry if this sounds stupid.

Mixing - out AES digital into Hedd out of Hedd into digital recorder (or back into PT)

While overdubbing - see if it sounds nicer than the DMX or 192 converters.. I bet it will... If so, use it for ALL overdubs.... adding a lick of the tape / valve process on the way in ....

What exactly does "Pentode & Tape" sound like? Is it some sort of musical sounding white noise and tape hiss?

The triode, pentode, and tape emulations don't add any noise. The unit basically takes the digital signal and copies it - the input signal is untouched and the 'copy' is used to drive distortion DSP that emulates the various tube or tape characteristics according to level, much like it would affect the signal if you were printing to tape or running your mix through various tube electronics (where you can adjust the level at which you hit the tape or tubes). Then, it adds this 'distorted' signal tot he original for a very realistic emulation of tube distortion and/or tape saturation...

That sounds cool, but pretty spensive for distortion.

Maybe I'll try running my tracks through my Marshall stack. rollz

Since someone was mentioning noise, Cranesong was distributing that "analog dither" cd for a while. Has it been incorporated into any of their hardware units? (AD/DA is not normally on my menu, so I usually forget these things.)

The Crane Song 'Analog Dither' that has been released on CD is the same dither used in Spider and HEDD-192...

A little OT but...

can you apply the processes while staying digital? I've never really tried, but I always assumed you have to do it with the conversion. It looks like you can't.

You can, set the Process knob to "Digital".
