FS: Echo Audiofire 12 - SOLD

Selling my Audiofire 12 to a good home. It's been in my smoke free studio for a few years and has served me well, but I am trying to sell a few things to purchase a UFX.. I'll throw in the firewire cable as well.

$375 shipped to the lower 48. Paypal preferred...

Thanks,

Jonathan

Maybe it's just me, but when I think of vibey and versatile at the same time, I like me some large diaphram dynamics... maybe a pair of sm7s or an MD421 or an RE20? Smoother than a condenser, but still works on a lot of different stuff.. may be a nice compliment to the mics you already have.. You'll...

Just out of curiosity, do you have any specific folky type albums that were recorded to analog that have the sound you are looking for? I noticed that you say that you don't have a lot of recording experience, and sometimes the sound that we associate with older analog recordings has a lot to do wit...

Thanks... From my research, the Aphex 142 will run at 48k only... Most of my projects are at 44.1, which I am fine with.. I just didn't want to have to convert old projects over to 48k if I didn't need to.

Well, that converter is more money than the UFX that I am trying to save up for a year from now, so I decided to find something a bit more affordable. I considered the ADA8000, AI-3, SM Audio unit (unbalanced), and the Focusrite, Aphex 142 (didn't want to be restricted to 48k only) and ended up find...

Wow, that is really cool.. I wasn't aware of the 142. I am definitely a fan of "less is more" when it comes to signal path.. that may be the ticket.. hmmm

Thank you for the suggestions so far, guys.. I considered the AI3, but I read that the unit runs at 20 bit, even though it says 24 bit on the unit. I know there were two units made, with the original saying 20 bit and the later model saying 24 bit, but I read someone saying that they dd extensive re...

New Octopre.. any good?

Ok, so it's not really new, per se.. but the newer model, the Mkii. I have an RME Babyface and an Audiofire 12 at the moment. I want to save up and purchase an RME UFX eventually, and keep the Babyface for mobile laptop recording. For drum tracking, I have been switching back and forth between the A...

I have one of these... http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/studio-rta-creation-station-studio-desk/546550000257000 My studio is also in a small, but well treated space.

I own an ATTY myself, an use it all the time, though I know that's not what you are looking for... I am curious to ask though, why do you want it to be unbalanced?

I'll chime in... I use Reaper on a custom built PC and a 5 year old Mac Book Pro. I also own an Audiofire 12 and the B word control surface you are talking about. Reaper runs great on my PC and Macbook. I have used and enjoyed the Audiofire for years now.. sounds and works great..solid on both compu...

Just wanted to follow up on this since I figured out the problem, and hopefully this might help someone else out someday. I was reading another thread on the Reaper forum which was discussing the pros and cons of using 32 bit Reaper or 64 bit reaper on a 64 bit operating system, in my case Windows 7...

I really appreciate the responses so far.. I generally track my incoming levels around -18 dBFS, so that should be hitting the converters where they like it.. I can't say that there are any specific problems that I can specifically point to the converters and say "this is holding me back". I guess i...

BLA mod my Audiofire 12, or save up for something else?

Hey guys, I have been using an Audiofire 12 for a few years now, and have been pretty happy with my recordings, but lately have been wondering if a more expensive unit might "up my game"... I have good mics, pres, monitors, and have treated my room...so, all of that is covered at this point (well, y...
