A lot of people seem to think analog gear is some kind of silver bullet- it isn't. If you time travelled back to 1975 and replaced the tape deck on the "Zuma" sessions with a MacBook, it'd still be an awesome record. Time traveling a hack band with bad songs to Abbey Road in 1966 would still sound l...

The Hosa job will work, if you don't mind having that thing hanging out of your amp jack with a cable running off it. If you're gonna do that, I'd strain relief it somehow. And yeah, you can use any old passive DI the same way, you just have to cobble together the adapters. I used to do that all the...

Midas Venice 320 console in NC, $700

Howdy TOMB, long time no see. I used to be an active member around here, but have more or less transitioned out of the recording end of pro audio. Long story short, my company has a clean Midas Venice 320 console for sale and can't find anyone to buy it. Asking price on CL is down to $800, but we'll...

FS: Beyer M88

Beyer M88 (older version, not the TG model): $325 shipped in ConUS.

Hypercardioid dynamic, excellent workhorse mic. A few scratches and scuffs, works perfectly and sounds great!

Black Flag did this with a live album. I think I've listened to it once. On CD, Husker Du's first album is two tracks- side one and side two. Technology has changed the way we all listen to music though- musicians, enthusiasts, and the unwashed masses alike. Just like VHS and DVD changed how we wat...

I always wonder how people "find" these deals.. In this guy's case, he's been the go-to guy around here for this sort of thing for 25 years. Earlier the same week he liquidated a nightclub, he's got an EV KF750 rig from another one parked in a truck out back. I told you, he's the rock & roll Fred S...

Anytime someone mentions how people "now" listen, or how young people now listen, that clumps me in with it. I guess I don't like being grouped into something that is totally not how I listen to, discover, or appreciate music. Obviously there are exceptions to everything, but in general listening h...

But since singles existed for years before the "album" became an art form in its own right in the 1960s...there's more than one way to skin a cat, and I think the single-type experience is more of what we're seeing people be into. I guess the point is that although the singles market has always exi...

There's not much clean about my Ashley SC-66 EQ. Lots of character there. D'oh! Forgot about that one, I was thinking of the later PQX series which are pretty surgical. Yeah, the earlier Ashly units were kind of dirty (in a good way), but the Symetrix stuff I've used has all been pretty transparent...

Me too. Something my brother and I used to do regularly and still try to 'debut' a new CD when we see each other. In the fall of 1991, I had just returned to college and went to see a friend I hadn't seen all summer. As soon as he saw me, Rob said "have you heard the new Nirvana?" He all but dragge...

Or just offer no tech support. That was long before the internot. Now days if that's tried, the wrath of pissed off bloggers with too much time on their hands can wreck a company's rep, whether deserved or not. "He sold me this crap and I can't fix it, what an a**hole!" Who needs that? True. What I...

Regardless..... someone with impeccable credentials (Jim Williams) has made an argument that is acceptable to lobstman. Time for me to turn the page on this thread. What is your problem with me? Did I fuck your wife or something? How soon we forget- I said that I wasn't interested in that kind of i...
