A jaunty number wants to be certified!

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I will try to read up on them soon but I checked the metric halo and sadly don't think i can warrant that kinda money yet.

I don't suppose I need to ask, but hey while I'm here, what do you think of Protools mbox system?

I have the availability to use both firewire or usb, i suppose though that firewire is the best choice?

I think I may just use it for small jobs, maybe 2-4 tracks but i wouldn't rule out anymore.

I found an old cheap valve tape deck in the attic a while back which i decided might be useful for the pre. So i broke out the soldering iron and connected an xlr at the input and the output cause connectors on the deck didnt work with anything i had. It's noisy as hell and needs to be put through a...

Hi just to update I bought the organ and everything seems fine except for the fact that it is really out of tune!! I recorded it and then had to pitch shift it about -40 cents before it was in tune with other instruments. I was wondering if there is any way of tuning the instrument itself? I opened ...

Thanks for the warning DJ LBP but not to worry because this thing looks like it is cased in grey plastic. Kids toys from the 70's certainly don't have the glow in the dark colour schemes that the modern equivalents' have. Drumsound I like your theory!! If all else fails and it sounds like a boat doc...

A chord organ. Hmm sounds like fun. Im sure i can use it for something, huge paper weight if all else fails. Is there any problems with these chord organs that i need to be wary about?

Bontempi B5 Organ

Just found this organ for kids from the 70's for $10. Is this thing any good? Should I buy it and stop worrying about it? Is this $10 for a reason
