You guys get the BX opto comp yet?

The one from the advertisement up there (imagine an emoticon pointing upwards and a little to the right). I really liked it on an acoustic guitar project I was mixing, it kinda softened 'em up and opened 'em up at the same time. I recommend it, and it's free for two more days (if you don't mind gett...

I was wondering the same thing a few months ago and almost started this same thread subject. It's kinda sad. I can't complain because I didn't come here for years when I tried to be off the 'net more. I do miss the old days when this was one of the very rare message boards that had just one or two f...

You owe it to yourself to check out the current sale at plugin alliance and also plugindiscounts before the year is up. I just spent a small fortune, but I am giddy about having a bunch of plugins that are ridiculously good and normally way out of my budget, namely the Elysia Mpressor and the SPL P...

We have Waves Mercury, almost every single UAD-2 plugin, the SoundToys bundle, and a handful of random other stuff. That being said, I could very happily mix an entire album with nothing but stock Avid or Logic plugs and the Soundtoys stuff. Well the Soundtoys stuff is a big "AND" I could mix an al...

Recently, I've been having a blast playing with Boz Labs +10db. It's not a Swiss-Army-knife do-everything channel strip, but what it does, it does really, really well. The EQ bands being in parallel rather than in series gives it a sound that I can't replicate with my other plugins. It's only $100 ...

Nice! This sounds like a very usable delay. Tis the season. The mpressor plugin is on sale for $69 for a very short while, and there's an IK t-racks deal going on right now that is very tempting as well. I have found that the ITB recordist is best off saving his money all year for holiday sales and ...

Electro Harmonix 12AY7 Mic Pre EHX

Electro Harmonix 12AY7 mic pre in good condition. With power supply.

I have two and only need one these days. One owner, lots of use without any issues. One has a sticker on it so I chose to sell the one that doesn't. The stock tubes have been replaced. $90 paypal'd and shipped in the lower 48 US.

Sold. Always wanted one of these, but I was looking more at the Heil PR35 or the Telefunken M80 due to the price. Hate having to use the ol' credit card at the time, but this is a good deal.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up for me Scodiddly. I guess I'll see if they work with the pads on for drum overheads and if not I may send one in for CAD to test.

So you are saying that all standard phantom power supplies will read around 7mA (dead short from pin 2 or 3 to pin 1) if they have 48V?

Thanks for the link. According one poster there, my mA ratings may be double what I thought since I was giving the rating for each side of a balanced cable. This adds to the confusion a bit, because in my three mic test one had its own phantom supply and that one was the highest rated so why did tha...

If you've got a voltmeter you might measure the phantom power from whatever preamp/interface you're using. I've never had a problem with my one M179 (sadly hasn't been used in years, though) but in general the CAD mics seem to need the full 48vdc. In preparation to send one of these mics off to CAD...

Wow, another shocked Tracktion user. I've been using Tracktion up to version 3 since it came out up until this week when I decided to make the switch to Studio One. I had no idea they did anything after Mackie dropped it. I tried almost everything else and Studio One was the only one worth switching...

I just contacted them to see what they say. I thought maybe since 2 out of 3 of mine did it that someone else may have had a similar experience, or someone could relay typical condenser mic failures. I am actually experienced in electronics repair, just not microphones, so if it was per se an easy f...
