rather than start a new thread, i figured i'd ask this here..

kindof a silly question, but the book is just a hardbound copy of a chunk of back issues, right?

Can you/would you care to go into more detail on the C-42's? I've been thinking about picking up a pair of these for a number of months, but priorities keep shifting, and I've never had the opportunity to actually hear them, so I've been hesitant and patient (that's a new one for me). I only had th...

The 5 mic stands for $89 is a great bargain for starting out, but you might also want to suggest a counterweight or two, cause the stands don't always lock tightly enough. I would also like to mention the ShinyBox ribbon microphone as an entry-level (pricing anyways) ribbon mic. It sounds fantastic ...

I recently purchased a Tascam FW-1884 for an audio interface and control unit. While the pre's don't work in Pro Tools unless I send them SPDIF or lightpipe, the control surface works wonderfully. The 1884 has this weird glitch though that prevents you from soloing, muting or record enabling multipl...

I have one of each! I have a ShinyBox 23 standard, and it's great! I have a StudioProjects C1, and it's ok. A bit brittle in the highs, but useable in many circumstances. I frequently like my Oktava Mk319 on many things I've tried using an LDC on. It's much darker sounding than the C1. So far, I hav...

I know someone will throw a tomato at me for suggesting this, but I think you'll get a more dramatic difference (not necessarily improvement, as that is a subjective term - more of a broader palette) by adding more microphones. I was thinking this myself. With $2000, you could get a couple of nice ...

modding a Boss RC 20 Loop Station

So I have this idea for a dual volume pedal mod for the RC-20 loop station that would allow you to control the Instrument gain and Playback gain through their own pedals instead of the little nobs on the pedal. Does anyone think this is possible? I've yet to open up the Loop Station because I don't ...

Good idea. Not gonna do it. I want MY TV. Perhaps even through (a) well placed microphone(s) your TV still won't sound like it does in real life? Perhaps then a thrift store TV which does not sound like your TV in real life may sound more like your TV on the recording? Personally, I'm for the thrif...
