I'm surprised at how much the list price increases as the cost of manufacturing goes up. You can expect to pay about five times what it costs to make. A $20 increase in manufacturing cost means another $100 to the consumer. Unfortunate, I know, but that's how it typically works. Some companies will...

I don't think this is surprising. Consider for a moment what the designers of each mic pre were probably aiming for. MOTU = generic (as in general purpose), low-cost, barebones. They had a strict price and set of specifications (very good ones, technically speaking) to achieve. Fortunately this is e...

Definitely one of the better ones I found. Would be perfect except for the part about having one set of track arm controls and having to scroll through to each track. I'd rather have everything in front of me. Speed is key. But thanks very much for your suggestion!

DAW control surface that resembles a tape machine remote?

It should have only transport control, track arm buttons, and hopefully a counter, but nothing else. No faders. Does such a thing exist? Has it ever? According to my research thus far, absolutely not! I love my DAW editing, not as a crutch but as a creative tool. I use it for compositional purposes ...

FS: (2) reels of 1/2" Quantegy 456 with take up reel

1/2" x 2500'. I bought these in fall of 2003, more than a year before Quantegy restructured and started having problems. One of the reels is brand new, unused and the other was used twice, but has no splices. Also included is a Quantegy take up reel. All three include their own plastic storage boxes...

FS: 1/4" Quantegy GP9, 7" reel with SOLD

sold They don't make this stuff anymore, as far as I know. 7" plastic reel, translucent red, GP9 stock. From summer of 2004, before Quantegy shut down and restructured. I only used it once and it has not been stored improperly, as far as I know. Also included are a matching Quantegy clear take up r...

Digi 888 or some other cheap A/D/A ???

So it looks like I may buy a new (to me at least) Pro Tools TDM system soon, d24 or mix core, and I'm trying to decide between a pair of Digidesign 888s (24-bit version) and an ADAT Bridge (also 24-bit) with some third-party converters via optical. I never owned an 888 with my old TDM system, but I ...

You've got to keep in mind the cost of wiring said console. With 24+ new I/O you're going to need a patchbay, and the cost of buying/building one would probably be pretty much the same for any of the consoles you mentioned, granted similar number of points. You don't want to find yourself spending $...

Call the guys up at Exile (purple/john klett/andrew roberts/ed anderson). There is contact info on the Prple Audio site. they are in LIC. They will probably have someone you could call if not them.. Don't bother calling Purple. Andrew doesn't do tech work anymore and refers most callers to Dan Zell...
