I use to use a similar chain for emulating that echo chamber. The GS desk was one similar to the famous green U*******l A***o tube console, same pres indeed. It was 12 inputs I can remember and it had a special routing allowing to mix the dry signal with the one coming from chamber. We din't have any console like this nebulized, just the UA 610 pres from Gemini but they are sampled not from vintage units. Other choice for tube console is Michael's Bogen, not as first row but at least tube 50s/early 60s desk. Another choice is Eric's Langevin console which I have used and got happy results.wagz wrote:
1. APEX tape ( I need to research the machines and tape they used @ Gold Star)
2. (This is for predelay.) A simple, clean sample delay or delay plugin with zero feedback
3. Tube console LINE IN or a tube mic preamp
4. Henry O. ribbon mic - something that cuts off everything above 8khz
5. Cupwise's Chambers of Myth
6. Tube console FX bus
The idea is tho send a signal delayed to the chamber and they used an ampex 350 which we have on Apex collection, so the first thing I use is a 350 preset from Apex, I use the 7,5 one which shows a great highs loss adding a highs lifter after with Pearl2. Then I put a 115ms delay which is the time at 7,5 between the Ampex's heads(it was a mess to calculate but it is the number and it sounds so good). Then I cut on 6000 or 8000 and 500, listening for the specific song of course but the freqs are close to them. Then it comes your choice for echo chamber. And the resulting signal is what I think came out from their echo chamber and I use it for mixing with the dry signal.
I have to mention that I have just one channel with that chain and every track is sent to it so in my chamber I have the mix of all of them together. I mean lnstruments, for voice I repeat the proccess.
