Re: DI bass and guitar

I usually record bass direct just as I've always been working (mostly) live in small to midsize rooms with questionably power, with the midsize one having very little useful bass isolation. Often in those situations I'm using the Radial passive DIs that stay dead quiet, but aren't really much to lis...

Re: dark condensers on the cheap for high SPLs

I'd put in a vote for the CAD M179s as well. Never had them crap out on close drums, and the polar patterns are really handy for tailoring rejection and proximity. I dunno if I'd call them dark, but I never thought of them as being overly assertive in any usage I had for them.

Re: UAD 3 Plugins Pack - Which would you choose?

1176 bundle, absolutely. Everyone should have a great Pultec plug too, and UAD was always my favorite. From there I think the field evens out with other plugin providers, and there's more room for personal preference. I never use Ocean Way in mic modelling mode, but love it in reverb mode, and for s...

Re: Mics - GT MD1a, Sennheiser E602ii

Here's the MD1a - which also includes the case, and a Peluso U87 shockmount that didn't actually fit on a u87, and also gave me one of the most painful metal splinters I've ever had. Now it's safely deburred, and holds an MD1 just fine.

Mics - GT MD1a, Sennheiser E602ii

Both mics are in excellent shape. I'm the original owner of the 602; it's in like new shape. I'm ATM25 for life. MD1a was purchased used, cleaned up, and used on many a guitar amp and FOK position since. Both are in great shape functionally and cosmetically and include the expected additional items ...

The SG is maybe the most universally good guitar around, but on the cheap, I'd get a Squier Tele Custom dual humbucker model and rip out ALL (switches, pots, everything) electronics and replace them with good stuff. Sell the other stuff for $40. Pull the neck if it feels meh, eBay if for 125, and sp...

Get this board. Bunches of wiring and connectors included. I need it out of here; hit me with trade offers. Good drum stuff, compressors, mics, reverbs/delays - I'm game for offers. I need the space quick! Plus, the master output is mirrored over 4 stereo outs, so you can be the envy of Gearslutz an...
