I certainly would be open to trying that product. It may be impossible with the budget but anything to help get that "in yer face magical mystery tour era bass tone" which is what I am referencing.

Gotta love those Beatles

Well I agree with alot of the sentiments everyone has shared but after listening to Mystery tour again this morning with head phones on I am always blown away at the tonal combinations and in particular the bass - it feels like its DI into my brain.

Good luck with the Blue Tube. Ours blowed big time. Opened a brand new one and the gain dial is totally offset on one channel and nearly non functional on the other. I gave it back to band mate to return. I am sure it is a manufacturing issue. The mp20 we used was much much more solid and works like...

what about fireface

I have fireface 800 and always wondered if I should be using the 800 firewire port.
For now the cost of an appropriate cable is prohibitive. But I have never had any problem with the 400FW line running all 8 analog AD/DA
anyone use these?

ion isn't too bad

I used to have the first run of as IOn and more recent micron. the ION was much more user friendly despite some of the lack of features. i suggest a newer ion as the early ones had majour OS bugs. I finally gave my micron away to 6 year old for a toy and i bought a nord lead 2x. but i still miss my ...

one more vote for AKG

I second that recommendation. From my experience prtty much any higher end AKG will be great investment. If you do tracking with headphones on you will really like the akg k 171s. They have very little bleed - however I warn you after 4 hours of non-stop overdubbing your head will be bleeding from t...

Tracking question (split signal output)

I am a one-man band singer/songwriter and also like to record my own stuff mainly just for fun. Mostly Alt. Rock stuff in the style of New Order Joy Division. I currently track my vocals and most instruments via Shure SM5b or AT4033CL into RNP/RNC and then into Fireface 800 and into Logic. I like to...

I used to live in a high rise apartment deal where I had neighbors on all sides and up and down. So I used the card box (a large flat box ) propped up by couch seat cushions with a radioshack small condenser into VLZ and on to MD 4 track. I thought it worked much better than expected and didn't both...
