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

I've that Shure but the version w/out the meter - what meter is half the fun. It's OK but I have other stuff - the Rane MS1B, for example, is similar (1 input) but better, IMNSFHO. What I wanted to say, for fuzzy pre that's cheap - Studio Projects VTB1. It was my second pre (I still use my first, M...

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

shure m67. honestly it's the exact opposite of what everyone on here and on GS have said. first, it's insanely quiet, no noise at all. second it's not very dirty/furry/wooly, it sounds like a slightly warm clean preamp. the interwebs have let me down... :cry: i didn't care about the noise just thoug...

Re: I-net collabs

Cool, good to know I'm not alone. markjazzbassist: a cheap computer (good-enuff XP Pro systems are on E-Bog for under US$200, just stay off internet), Reaper (US$60), an M-Track interface (US$100 new). Or, get a small SDHC digital recorder (for the XLR and 1/4" ins, usable converters) to transfer y...

Re: Rat Shack coming back?

Re: Patch Bay Question

aphex 124. does 2 channels either +4 to -10 or -10 to +4. look up their specs, they are flat like 10hz to 40k. very nice units and cheap as hell used on ebay. you can get a pair for 50 bucks. that would be 4 channels, if you need 8 that's 100 bucks. the ebtech is nice but it's expensive.

Re: Aiight, let's talk broken shite, and other outstanding work

Re: Tempo Shock

yeah i'd recommend stopping and working on something else or calling it a day at that point. as a bassist i'm uber conscious of timing between the rhythm section, sometimes i hear "micro mistakes" where the bass and kick are delayed by nanosecond. i think i'm terrible. come back the next day and rea...

Re: Laurel or Yanni, is my hearing severely compromised?

i hear both. yanny is higher, laurel lower pitched. i have fantastic hearing though (was just at an audiologist). i used IEM and earplugs and don't crank amps. i also don't play with guitarists :) that's saved me more than just my hearing :)

Re: Alesis HD24 - Still a decent option?

tascam dr 680 new is in your price range. i had a friend that used it on movies a lot and never had issues. I came across that in my search. It looks good but I’d go for more inputs. One of my regular gigs is a live talk show with a house band. I usually end up at 16 ins for that one. 24 I/O is pre...
