I can not believe how many people like and remember the Toadies!


And yeah, Blood Sugar Sex Magick was a great album, in fact I have been chronically disappointed with everything else RHCP has ever done as a result.

A true testament to the talent of Rick Rubin.

PMI does not deserve to be bashed here and the product which has now sold some 1000 consoles is out and working. There are 45 pages with some 92,000 views since July 2006 on Gearsluts with so many positive comments. Do not jump to label our consoles bad because of one customer...especially when he ...

But again, the gray ones are the preferred ones.
I was gonna say the 635A.

But upon further reflection, I'm thinking Muskrat.

OK! Woke up to this weirdness at 4 AM. Tried the lightswitch flicking, wasn't doing it, I followed the sound as best I could and ended up in the attic. This is my "B room" where I have some gear set up, including a big honkin' pair of JBL 4311 monitors plugged into a pretty cranked power amp. The li...

Was going to suggest one of these, but they seem to have gone up 10x in price over the last 4 years. :?

Today I feel like I scored the greatest deal at GC. I've been loosely eyeing the KRK RP6s for a spell just for their price advantage. Never heard one or any other brand for that matter although the Yamahas sure looked tempting! Anyways, I went to kick about at the local GC, learning that they were ...

Wish I'd read this earlier. Just last night I lit my solder sponge on fire by accidentally setting the iron down on it for a couple minutes at 1:30 AM.

Lucky there was beer on hand to put it out...

I have leopard (no daw on that machine though) and you can record in 24 bit in GB, but as far as I can tell you can only export in mp3.

Suckola.
I stand corrected! Sorry for spreading disinfo! You can export uncompressed after all.

Why would you want to boost its impedance? Why do you think it is not presenting a 250 or 600 ohm load?

Plenty of info on these if you do a search, there was very recently a thread on sub-$500 ribbons.

To sum up: Beyer M160, Joly modded Nady, Fathead and ShinyBox are all awesome deals.

The Swedish transformers (Lundahls) turn overseas ribbons from usable mics to "go-to" mics, imo.

Happened again!! Unrelated to the stereo, light switch fixed it. :? :? :? You are kidding!! Is your electrical box humming or just your light fixtures or what?! Doesn't seem like either, must be the furnace, that's the only thing big enough to shake the house, I think. I hope there isn't a short so...
