Just got one of the Rycote InVision Studio Kit universal shockmount/pop filters to replace my thrashed old Neumann one.
All I can say is "WOW!" I never thought I'd be excited over something as simple as a shockmount, but this thing is awesome!

My home studio, currently being overrun by an electronica band I moonlight with. I wouldn't mind hearing your band, but I would NOT want to be your roadie. :) It's kinda scary, but the guys have brought over a couple more synths since I took that picture the other day, including a totally bad-ass P...

Yeah, those Stew Mac ones are the OEM-grade (imported) type and will die just as quickly as the factory-installed ones do. The better ones will have threads all the way to the end, and the cheapies will only be threaded for about half the body of the jack. Nick's post jogged my memory... if I rememb...

I've had great luck replacing the OEM cylinder jacks with a Switchcraft-made equivalent. Seems like all the OEM ones are very cheap in comparison. I can't remember the part#, but this is what it looks like: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290501461037&hlp=false&rvr_id=190359628996...

Y'know, we are almost neighbors; I'm inna south suburbs of Chi. Butt I'm not sure if that's a wampeter, foma or gran falloon. Wow... very literate, too! Well, Chi isn't really a wampeter of where I live, but it's not too far, either. I live about 40 minutes north of Indy in lovely Kokomo, and Chi i...

Thanks >> I believe the VirDIs will allow 24 channels direct :: just waiting for the latest version hardware...........

Have looked at the control surfaces -- and could probably write keyboard shortcuts to perform button controls :: that we are familiar with from the Roland . . Why not use your VS2480 in control surface mode? I did that for quite a while when I switched back to a computer-based DAW. Logic's support ...

No problem... I remembered reading on the Focusrite answerbase about a company that makes a 10meter firewire cable that doesn't need a repeater... might be worth looking into if you need the LM far away from your computer. Personally, I tried using a hub as an extender and had erratic results. Once ...

I have a friend who is completely deaf in one ear, but manages to make amazing mixes. I'd imagine it would be easier in his case than it would be for someone with significant HF loss in both ears, though. As an aside, have any of you had your hearing thoroughly tested? It's pretty amazing/alarming t...

The Liquid Mix is very finicky when it comes to your firewire connection... If you're using a hub or extender, that could very well be the cause of the problem. The best bet is to have the LM on its own firewire buss. If you have a desktop machine and have an open card slot, a dedicated firewire PCI...

This is a great thread... sparks a ton of memories of stupid things I've done!
