FS: Symetrix SX202's

I have for sale 2 Symetrix SX202 dual mic preamps with power supplies, serial numbers are 46945 and 46946. I bought them together from someone else here on the TOMB a few years ago. One of them works perfectly, but only one channel on the other unit is really usable. If I recall, the gain on channel...

I had a music theory/composition professor in 08 or 09 who had one of the Gibson Robots. He had spent the previous summer touring the US with a new music ensemble, so I could see it coming in handy for that. He most likely had to go through a ton of different oddball tunings, probably with little to...

I think that because Tape Op mag is such a wonderful and beloved thing, people feel like if they miss an issue, they are missing out on something special and possibly life-changing. I can relate to that. I have missed issues before (worth noting that it was my own fault for not updating my address w...

Wow, I did not realize they broke up... That just put a damper on my friday night :( But yeah, they were great, and all of the other projects that those people are/were involved in are great, too. Definitely some wonderful examples of contemporary music that pushes boundries.

I don't know if this is at all in the vein of what you are looking for, but Sleepytime Gorilla Museum has been doing some pretty interesting stuff.

Listening to that Raspberries thing made me feel better about some of the drum sounds I've gotten over the years. I guess it shouldn't though. Two wrongs don't make a right Ha ha, I know what you mean. So many times I've finished a project and thought "Man, this just doesn't sound that great..." an...

At least in my experience, phase problems seem to disapate when you start panning the mikes away from each other. I.E., if there are phase issues, they are MOST apparent to me when the two signals are in the same pan position.

As Snarl said, in the past I've tried to do crazy hard-panning with groups like that and it always lacks in power and "oomph". I usually end up having everything up the center, or drums up the center, guitar over to one side with guitar verb or short delay panned opposite. In my opinion, if the drum...

An 828 mkii has been on my short list for a while now, but threads like this scare me. Even if I buy one in "excellent" condition, how long is it going to last for?

This is awesome! I'm at work and I can't listen to the songs you've done, but I love the idea and may have to try it myself.
