Most Condensor Microphones have a "pad" switch (usually -15 or -20 db). That will decrease your input volume, allowing for you to turn your gain up and have greater ability to fine-tune. Also, most mixers have a "pad" switch or button as well, and this will do the same thing. However, I have never encountered a condenser microphone producing such a ...

If I understand correctly, you are currently using your mixer's gain knob very close to it's minimum gain position, and you'd prefer to be in a middle position. This means that the output level of your microphones is close to the max input level of your mixer's inputs. Possible workaround (depending on your specific equipment) : There might be an ...

One thing that always helps to get something in a special Place -> Reverb/Impulse Response Reverbs. One thing so -> Don't always think you need a big reverb for wide locations. Sometimes small reverb create a better image of a big wide place, imho. If you want go get your hands dirty -> Go into a wide,rock canyon (or similar, maybe a stadium etc.) and ...

You can't change the signal level that that's recorded from Logic, Logic will record the signal it gets bit for bit. You can change the monitoring level in Logic and that's what you're hearing when you adjust the levels in Logic while tracking. The way to control your signal level that's recorded is right from your Apollo, the big knob adjusts your relevant ...

I have had this issue as well. I built my own microphones using condensor mics. The circuit was not my own and with it´s original design values I found that it was overdriving my mixer, A soundcraft Signature 16 channel.I could not go above the minimum gain setting at all. I eventually had to modify the circuit values so as to attenuate the output. End of ...

In addition to the points already made, do remember that much of the rock/canyon sounds on TV and film are far from authentic. I spend a lot of time hanging around on rocks and the real sound effect is much more subtle. Much of the time in film and TV all the sound effects tend to be over emphersised to make the point.

There was a thread about it on the C74 forums who had the same problem. http://cycling74.com/forums/topic/spam-becoming-a-problem-on-forum/ Some interesting ideas in there. Perhaps it depends on how customisable the forum software is. How about if a post was marked as spam by 3 users with 1000+ reputation it would be immediately trashed. Moderating all ...

Actually, a good picture CAPTCHA is very solid. The only way a robot/program could interpret a good picture CAPTCHA is using character recognition. Now, computer vision simply isn't that advanced and likely never will be (the logic would be extremely complex). The one used here might be too simple (not messed up enough) or it's not requested every single ...
