Re: shedshrine 3.0 build

Sometimes I think being a little more mature, more experienced, and hopefully a bit more content in life can cut into the artmaking thing. Misery, yearning, confusion, anxiety, longing, ambition, competition--that's where a lot of the good stuff artistically comes from. And hopefully, as one grows ...

Re: shedshrine 3.0 build

if you are ever in need of money the 238's and 388 will fetch a tidy sum these days. i've seen 388 go for 2K+ and 238's going for 1k+. not advocating selling them, just saying they are highly coveted out there.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

1980 Roland VK-09 1980 Korg CX-3 Battle of the vintage analog clonewheel organs. I can't fit a proper organ in my small studio space, so it's gotta be one of these. Had a friend that used a CX-3 in a band we were in and it sounded fantastic through a motion sound. I'm gonna put both these through th...

Re: Downsizing advice

i am constantly evaluating and re-evaluating the gear i have and trying to find ways to do more with less and to minimize. my studio is on the 3rd floor of my home (finished attic) and it's about 1/3 of that (other side is a den of sorts to hang and watch a screen for netflix/etc). so i'm working wi...

Re: Bach-age

Well you gotta figure, the settings on your delay pedal might motivate you to play a certain riff. We often futz with the reverb pre delay and decay to match the song. If you're hearing your music in a space with certain characteristics all of the time, consciously or subconsciously you're going to...

Re: Latest Gear You've Un-Acquired....

You don't actually get rid of stuff. You just talk about it I'm turning talk into action. Just put up round one in the Buy/Sell/Trade section. yeah i'm always selling stuff. i treat my "studio" (i use that term loosely) as a trial space for gear. i just buy stuff at lowball price, try it out, it st...

Re: Headphones for occasional mix reference

AKG K240 Studio. Which surprisingly now retail for about half what I paid for my last set ($99 on sale in '08-ish). (Of course, if you liked the Sony's, then you might not like the AKGs. In my experience, people seem to gravitate to one or the other, seldom both.) agreed, i use the vintage AKG K240...

Re: Weird cable companies- ever tried any of these?

I had a Seismic snake. Maybe I still do...? it's Ok for the studio where it stays put. I wouldn't expect one to last too long if gigged. Not much different than the quality of a Hosa or Monoprice snake IMO... you know, molded 1/4" plugs and such. not much room for repairs.. Mike yeah, i think i cut...
