    What kind of jobs do you mostly do? The marketplace here might have something for you and from what I've seen there's usually pretty good deals. I can't see your location but in Canada I use Kijiji....

    I had one where the solder didn't hold. Quick fix but annoying.

    Nice video, beautiful location and studio. Must have a been a great experience. Is it the best studio in the world? I'd say it's definitely a subjective opinion. All I know is I would love to have...

    You'd like to think this were true but especially in most commercials the dynamics are crushed. As far as listeners prefering cleaner dynamic sound, I really don't think so here either. Its really...

    Fair enough. I personally like the use of "ducking" with a comp. If you make it nice and subtle it does a really good job of making the VO come across clearly and bring the music back to a good...

    This may sound terribly dumb but what exactly are the decoders doing? I have a couple rack dual pres with the ms decoder on them but don't use em. I am used to busing the one side of the bi mic,...

    You need to not take these suggestions as what to do but more as a starting point. Every situation is different. So try each mic on the vox and decide for yourself which is better. Then move the mic...

    So you decided to record one instrument at a time I take it. Good luck, hope it turns out well for you.

    No dre. Not only should you be trying not to pick up the atmosphere but if you aren't using the proper mic or technique it won't even sound natural anyway.

    The worst "reality" shows are the repo ones. God they are terribly unbeleivable. Extreme Couponing seems to be more documenting than anything. Even those ones are "scripted" though.

    Why confused? Haha. I'll try and explain the best I can. Is it my Canadian accent?

    Why would he have to bring a computer to the shoot? The OP wanted to get a recording of the band to make a video to... Not record a band live. Which would require him to use a computer at some point...

    Not trying to be a dick just making it simple so others understand.

    Step 1: Setup your drums with fresh skins and get the drummer and guitarist to jam out the song a bit (maybe a few different...

    Before I had a lot of gear to record drums I usually used a gtr dfx pedal that has a metronome and headphone out. Most do. Drummer wears the HP's, guitarist rocks with the drummer and the performance...

    Decereasing the room size untreated puts you into a world of trouble with phase issues. And as for layering.. After the drums are are done you simply hit record and perform over top of the drums....

    An amatuer band probably plays 4/4 with a set tempo. Use a metronome and record the drums as I said. Do this in a rehersal space and get it tight as possible. From there use the H4n as an interface...

    Well throwing a H4n in an enclosed tiny space and recording the entire band off the floor is a much worse idea than recording in a club. I have experience doing both, in a club it sounds live and...

    I agree its not great to just take a board mix but its also not as easy as it seems to just throw a h4n in a room of that many musicians and yeild good results. Many clubs have a secondary mixer...

    From what I gather you need to worry more about battery life than the overheating issue. Just be sure not to be covering it with a bag in 100 degree weather all day.

    Something I didn't take into account was the fact you may not be able to edit 4 track seperately. In this case check out the recorderman overhead technique. It will sound much better than just the...

    If you can rig the zoom onboard as an overhead or room mic setup, while running a mic to the snare and the kick it will give you more options. Get the zoom either close to the symbols... or as a room...

    Maybe link test samples and you can get some better advise. I wouldn't just go buying mics, if anything rent a couple wired lavs.

    Yes, obviously but an NTG3 is much better than the NTG1/2 and the DR-100 quality is still great quality. I assume that he won't need better I/O or bag friendly unless he's actually a sound guy... and...
