I tend to use an all mannor of hardware to run shit through: compressors, distorions, mixers, filters/EQs, valves, transistors, speakers, microphones, fucked up lo-fi samplers, and blasting stuff through my audio interface so it distorts on the way in. (cue digital distortion tirade by someone ;))


I tend to create a sound using the hardware approach, and then sample it to use in a track. When I actually make the music, it tends to be all software. When I finish a tune I experiment with running the tracks through hardware again.

I found trying to use hardware in the songwriting process is not so good for me (except synths) becuase I rather have the instant recall etc of software.

I just used the analogue filter on my allan & heath dj mixer to manually filter a bassline in a new tune and it sounds sweet as! I never fault of using it in production before and I think I will be using it again. :)

The A&H filter is actually a really kick ass filter for production stuff too. And since it's A&H, you don't need to worry about the sound quality of the rest of the mixer's signal path.

Yes thats true. The signal path is pretty clean too. A the lo-pass wih resonace is wicked on bass leads.

Im not sure what the filters are but Allen & Heath do a seprate filter box aswell so it might be the same as that.

Do you guys do the 'out of softsynth through (cubase) into the outboard gear then back into (cubase)' in the same take, or do you record down to another device / file, then import that outboard-processed file back into cubase?

Just trying to work out the logistics of this given my current setup...

I usally play the audio in my sequencer thru the outboard while im recording in the sequencer. then I delete the old and keep the freshly recorded version.

Something like that. :)

Don't you get evil send/return feedback overload when you do this?

I haven't done anything like this for so long I can't remember how (!)

bass sounds better at higher sample rates due to the shallow angle of the waveform being represented more accuratley.

saw something bout it in sound on sound recently.
