Subject: RE: [motm] Recording the MOTM-preamps????

From: "David Bivins" <dbivins@...>

Just run the MOTM outputs into the 1202, adjust the 1202 trims accordingly,
and connect the master outs of the 1202 (or the tape outs if you do not have
1/4" to RCA cables) into the G3 audio card. Don't worry about all that other
business for now--you're asking for something that makes the MOTM sound like
MOTM, but you're also asking for something to color the sound. Best to start
with a clean sound and add coloring (via processors, insert effects, etc.)
after you've determined what's missing (if anything).

I most often use spring reverb and digital delay with my MOTM, myself. I
also compress it alot. This all happens via the mixer (aux sends for
effects, inserts for compression).
