http://www.effectsdatabase.com/model/887/ This is the holy grail of analog flangers....I've been sorely tempted many times on Ebay, but chicken out as the price rises to $300, 400+......XLR in/outs.....sigh.....I think it's also a standard analog delay with a bucket brigade max of 600 ms, which is a...

The (now defunct?) magazine Cool and Strange Music did an issue featuring Esquivel and went into some depth. I think you may still be able to get back copies -- of course, Google. Here, in Minneapolis at Electric Fetus (the best record store I've EVER encountered, this city or others) has a few Esqu...

Ok.....this is pretty low-brow, but I believe I read that someone tried it, and I've always meant to, and I will, dammit! Put a wireless mic on a turntable (preferably vari-speed) and mic up a speaker, either your original amp source or re-amping. I dunno.....seems like it might work....?? I'm going...

Say, I know this has been covered before, but I , too, built the Hamptone Tube Pre about a year ago, and it also has become my workhorse -- everything goes through it. And yes....feeding my Kurzweil rack sampler and Korg Ex8000 through the Hamptone really gives 'em the spark. Mostly using it with mi...

Re: cool edit pro help now!!!!!

You should ask Peter Quistgard. I'm sure he can help you with your problem. Heh heh.....now that's good humor. I have to admit I too wondered where I remembered that from... Have to come clean and admit that for about a month I used the "Peter Quistgaard" crack before I ponied up and bought it. Hav...

WTB: Fostex VM88 or VM04 Digital Mixer

Looking for one of these......of course the VM88 would be nicer to have. Essentially I'm looking for an inexpensive, more or less portable d/a converter to upload to my portable recorder for 2 track recordings, lightpipe-wise. The mixer capabilites would be a plus. I suppose I should mention a Midim...

Re: Deep Purple - Machine Head sound

I, too, have always loved Machine Head........wore out my vinyl copy when I was 16. Skipped, too......so it shocked the hell outta me when I heard it "clean" on CD the first time -- I was almost nostalgic for the "Swiss time was (click)'ing out". Yeah, I've noticed this, too.....great production, gr...

Re: High Quality Analog Delay?

Look no further than the TC Electronic 2290 http://www.tcelectronic.com/TC2290 Still in production, but it been out since the 80's, so you can probably find a good deal on a used one. This unit is the shizzle and an industry standard delay. The 2290 is indeed da shiznit, but is in fact, digital all...

Re: ART PRo VLA; Made In China?

I received a prompt response from ART apologizing for the oversight. They've recommended an exchange or return from the dealer it was purchased from and their website has been changed; omitting the "Designed and made in the United States" I'm hoping to get an exchange for one of the last remaining ...

Re: What do you hate about modern records?

Heh...auto tune...now anyone can be a singer. Imagine if Bob dylan or john fogerty had it... Hmmmm..............Bob's voice has it's shortcomings, but I always thought he could nail the pitch ok. But, to your point, if they had tried to use Autotune with Bob -- what a personality-suck that would ha...

New Tascam 34b Distorting on Low End

Well......not new new, of course, but new to me, certainly. Picked up a 34b 4 track open reel on Ebay and just got it back from the shop after having the pinch roller replaced, heads demagged, etc. etc. The tech said he doesn't see many decks in this condition, and he meant it positively. He did som...

Re: Symetrix Gear

Symetrix stuff is great!! I use a 501 for my bass -- with a DOD envelope follower with the filter closed I can get totally monster dub bass tones. It just seems to grab my bass (attack/release) better than other compressors. Also have the venerable 606 delay -- wow.....this delay is so deep, and so ...
