As I found out by many people here, the Sure SM-7b is a terrific vocal mike. I haven't heard one bad thing about that mic.

I never really understood why a Lacie HDD, or equivalent, is supposed to be better than mounting a reliable brand of HDD into an external drive case. It doesn't seem cost-effective to me.

I've had most success with the ubiquitous Oktava MC-012's not so much as an XY, but more like an AB. I put them about 2-3 feet above the open top, pointing down at the hammers and strings, angled a little bit in maybe, and spaced about 3 feet apart. Something like that.

Anybody try the M-Audio NRV10 mixer?

I only wish that it had a few more channels and DAW control capability. It's a move in the right direction though!

I believe that they were referring to "fundamental" frequencies. This is the range that makes up the most important element of a particular instrument or voice. The rest are complimentary or octaves of the fundamentals.

What's the latest in the B.S. lawsuits that Monster Cable had on any company with the word "Monster" in it? For those of you who don't know, here's just a little bit of what you can find on the internet about this. It gets my blood boiling!! :evil: http://www.snowmonsters.com/MonsterCable/truelies.h...

How 'bout those Roland VS 2480 series?

The VS 2480DVD has caught my eye. It has most everything I want in a compact recording rig: plenty of channels, automation, editing, keyboard moust & monitor outputs, CD burning, backup capability - it does sooo much. Do any of you have hands-on experience using any of these? And what's your take on...
