Re: Is a 4-track cassette the center of your home studio?

On the topic of cassette tape. You ever notice in many of the adverts for cassette trackers, the cassette in the machine is like a mini reel to reel tape? Meaning each side, the take up and feed side have their own miniature reels, not just wound on hubs. Do those type of cassettes actually exist fo...

What I've learned from TO...so far

Key "aha!" moments include but are not limited to: Get informed, ie:Don't fall for gimmicky bell and whistle stuff, save up for some key quality peices for a good basic signal chain. These peices don't have to be exorbidant in price. Reward manufacturers who "get it" and make stuff that is good. 8)...

Re: My favorite Led Zep right now. . .

A little off topic maybe, but On Encomium, a Zep tribute album, the only cut I thought was good was four nonblondes version of misty mountain hop. Linda Perry sounds like shes going to explode. The outro guitar riffing is cool too. I like to two story shoes in the video, as in she knows she's trying...

...Or did you mean any card in that series. ( At over $200 a pop for a 512, I kind of want to be positive it'll work. )

Thanks!

Re: "Pop style has stopped happening"...

i agree with some of this as well, but creating artifical rules about options seems pretty dopey to me. right now i am going through something similar - i need more time and space than i need gear these days. While it would be great to have a multi-pattern mic, tube pre, upgrade puter sw, and all s...

Repeater product research/launch era cfcs starting with the batch serial number referenced.ANd then the product line was dropped and the forum kind of died. BUT... In case anybody...

"Pop style has stopped happening"...

A quote from liner notes in a Gary Numan album (late nineties reissue of The Pleasure Principle), taken from an article in the technology magazine Wired: "Pop style has stopped happening. Style used to be, in part, a record of the technological limitations of the media of each period. The sound of t...

How to get balanced signals into unbalanced gear?

Trying to get balanced gear to play nice with an electrix repeater. Is there some converter box or adaptor for this? I've got a balanced patchbay, and I dont' want to have to route through a mixer if possible. Is it worth trying to get someone to convert the repeater to balanced I/O? Thanks.
