Howdy All... I have a CAD M9 and an M Audio "Luna" going through a Delta 1010 or a Mackie Onyx Satellite... that goes straight to tone of three workstations into either Adobe Audition3 or SONAR 7 (primarily) I also work with ACID Pro6 from time to time but not as much as I used to... from there I play "fun games" with Waves plugs and the VC64 and Lexicon Pantheon and some 100 or so various effects as the mood strikes...

On the laptop I bought a Lexicon Alpha... YEAH! a $99 Alpha. No phantom, two ins /out bare bones... it is as clean a baby's... UGHG never mind that one... it's not noisy at all and the quality is a lot more than I expected... I'm running Vista and SONAR 7 on the laptop. It's a Dell T7500 w 4gb RAM

I am not a technical idiot, in other words, I do know how to hook things up and know their purpose. However, I do have questions regarding settings, and if a certain piece of equipment will work properly with my setup. I have an AT4040 mic, an ART tube pre, as well as an M audio solid state pre. I recently came into an Orban compressor/limiter. My question is, what if I hook the Orban in with my ART tube pre? The problem with that particular pre is too much hiss. I have tried everything as far as input/output and can't get rid of the hiss. I know for sure it is not my cables and I don't have the hiss problem with the M audio pre. Soooooo, by running the Art tube pre into the Orban compressor/limiter, will that work? If so, are there any suggestions on threshold settings etc.. I will run as low of compression as possible, and I already attack/slow release. Any help here? Thanks.

Hi James,
Could we get a file with the DBX so we can compare the two?
Comment by James Anthony on May 19, 2008 at 2:48pm
Here is a test audio file .....without the DBX vocal strip ...just the pre into the sound card

TLM 103 to TL audio Dual Valve pre to Layla 24 Sound Card to Computer with WIn XP using Adobe AuditionV3.0...
PROBLEM>>>I bought a dbx vocal strip and I can't decide if I should use the TL audio pre out to a DBX vocal strip (line in) and just bypass the pre on the DBX...anyone else use the DBX?

Hi Everyone
I received notice of a post on Gearheads of Todd Jones' query on the Microport Pro. Once I got to Gearheads I couldn't find the post, so I am writing here to reply. I do have one and it is really a great tool for me, especially when I need to use my regular mic (Rode or Neumann) and not my USB (Samson C01U)- while travelling.
Hope this helps.

Good post David...I love my 414...wish I still had the 3035. I've found out though that knowing how to "turn the knobs 'till it sounds good" is a still a very valid thing to understand. Meters are a great reference point....aaaah but that's some impressive technology...
Give me a high level pro and he/she can make 2 cans and some string good...Love my Merc bundle as well...The SSL plugs are really sweet. And the Ren6...still a fave...

Great Group!
Depending on the Voice Actor it could be the 103, a 3035, a 414, or an SM7B. On the road I get in through a MOTU 828, or a rack of 8 Pre's. Here I come in through a Langevin DVC, sometimes add more compression with a Manley Elop, and will sometimes EQ going in with a GML 8200. We go a to d through a digi 192 clocked to an apogee Big Ben. The PT system is HD3 with Waves Merc. Personally love the Ren 6. On the other hand, I did a session for a national client on the road with an M-Audio Fast Track and a KSM32. Gotta make it work!
