Hi, J0_77, You want a warm buzzy sound? In the software that came with the CDR, is a filter that lets you choose the type of tube amp that you wan to emulate. Ya want 12AX7's, 12AU7, 6L6, your pick.
There is also a filter that you put in the kind of mic that you used. (no I don't think it has Radio Shack in its list .) Then you can reset the response curve to any kind of mike you want.
Lets see, we are doing DAT recording in the field. Then it is loaded into the Roland DM-80 (digitly) Now the only analog step, a very big mixor board. Here echo is put in, EQ, level ballance, etc. This then is loaded up on another DAT. (Safty copy) and also loaded into the computer. In the computer all I do is a normalization. This sets the levels of all the tracks to the same level, I use -1 db. I also name the tracks here, put in the CD data, title, track names, etc. Then burn the CD. The CD arhect makes the REDBOOK. (What you want for a master CD.)
