Why don't you add effects after you dump into the DAW? You can take the RCA tape outs from the Fostex and go directly into an 8 channel interface and save all your mixing and effects for when you are in the DAW.

I bought two pair and some extension cables and 3.5mm to 1/4" adapters. The adapters kind of suck. The headphone extension cables do their job. The headphones are fine for ~$23 each. I'd buy from Monoprice again, but can't say I'm very excited about the adapters, but at <$1 each you get what you pay...

I have the KSM42. I wanted a "vocal mic" and figured the engineers at Shure know how to design a task specific microphone. I like it and need to use it more to learn it, but what I've recorded so far sounds "comfy" for lack of another term...definitely not harsh or strident.

I have been trying to "standardize" to Reaper, but making CDs in Samplitude is so dang easy. Samplitude's stock plug ins are awesome (and I am no fan boy of Magix). Reaper is easily my digital tape deck of choice. I do have a 4 track Yamaha cassette deck and a Fostex E-16 reel-to-reel to choose from...

For me the issue seems to be that I have to increase the buffer too much to record with Mixbus compared to Reaper or (on Windows) Samplitude...drop outs, glitches at low latency recording settings...YMMV...but like I said, I will continue to support Mixbus. I believe their paradigm is unique in our ...

I have Harrison Mixbus, but unfortunately it's not as friendly as other DAWs I use. I like it's "sound" and user interface, but don't like it's editing and other computer-oriented stuff like file handling. I will continue to support and upgrade my Mixbus, but it is not super easy like other (previou...

I just patched the one I have to a Mackie 32-8...16 tracks for recording/16 tracks for play back. I have a tape that my buddy recorded on years ago and it sounded pretty warm (though it was synth tracks for a movie). Thanks for the replies.

OK, thanks. Where do you notice the difference? Care to elaborate at all? Harrison Mixbus seems to make the recording sound "more expensive" to me. Scientifically, I have no clue what that translates to...nonetheless, when I get past my backlog and schedule (projected, July 2012) I will "play" with...
