I'm in the process of listing the dumbest things' I've heard Audio engineers and Studio Owners say (or do!).
But for now how about this one....
"I can hear 1/2 db difference at 20,000 hertz".
Told of course by an Audio Engineer who has NEVER worked on a 'major' project.
and does his work in digital... and thinks it sounds great, thinks he's great too.
A guy emailed me about his equipment and said
"It has XLR's so I know it's a balanced unit..."
Just having XLRs does NOT mean it is balanced !!!
An engineer emailed me and told me he had just done sessions
at a studio that labeled all of their XLR Cables as "pin 3 hot"
There is no 'hot' or 'cold' in a normal XLR Cable...
Pin 1 goes to Pin 1, Pin 2 to 2 and Pin 3 to 3
An engineer walked into a Control Room and said confidently and with authority
it was up 6db at 300 hertz...
but when measured it was down 6db at 300 hertz!
Wow! The Golden Ears of Cotton!
or... Can you help me... I want my voice to sound like John Lennon on Rubber Soul
what equipment do I have to buy to get that vocal sound ?...
a 'real' request from the 'Prodigy Professional' forum...
Hey...You aren't John Lennon... you will NEVER sound like him.
everyone thinks if they just buy the same gear they will sound just like
whoever they want.... yet they have no talent, no skill, but what the hell...
isn't that what ProTwels is for -
to allow non-talented folks to pretend to be real talented musicians???
