my 4341's are along the 15' wall... it's a strange layout, with an adjacent  (open door ) 10 x 10' room, a fireplace and more clutter....

back wall is semi-open on the ends as well

What do I need for a mic with rew?

I have an akg condenser recording mike???? and a bunch of shure dynamics  ....sm58, etc

the akg is a Perception 200.....(it picks up a fly scratching it's azz in another room)

I hate to be a "Debbie Downer"... but there really isn't an electronic / software solution to an acoustic problem -- it might work for the "fun factor"... but will not be anything close to an actual solution.

hey Deb, how's it hangin' ?

while nothing has changed physically (yet),  I have come to realize a few things

1) Room size is terrible?
2) speaker placement is awful?
3) mixing with 4341's is near impossible

but...

4) The small Fostex's are doing the job for the moment
5) The wall of sound produced by the jbl's seems to impress just about everyone
6) Feedback from this and other sites = Me, not chasing my tail over this, while other more pressing problems are being addressed .

So , when the smoke clears, I will have had ample time to study, research and hopefully make things better....bass traps, etc. plus messing with rew, etc should be fun

Meanwhile here's a mix done using the Fostex's

thx to everyone for the feedback, so far

Seems like you're being realistic about the situation... and the link you posted sounds fine so it seems like your situation isn't entirely untenable.  At the end of the day the only thing that matters is how the product sounds when it hits the street -- so [at least from what I heard in that link], it seems like you're doing alright.

that clip was my 2nd attempt at trying to get a kind of live sound for my blues trio's demo cd.  UR44/Cubase/fostex.  I have an 01v96vcm that I am learning how to use for live stuff with my other band....a Quebec band that made beach boys songs (in French) popular up here, in the '60's.

I hope to (eventually) control the 01 wirelessly (air fader ?) for the live stuff,  get the 01 talking to Cubase for recording demos and some original material, and install some acoustic treatment along the way.

So far, not bad....just need to keep plucking away at it....small steps

thx
