As I understand it, it didn't do very well on the consumer market because it was way too honest an eq, in addition to the sound of the transformer. People didn't know what to make of it. I also heard that there were some serious issues interfacing it with consumer stereo gear, as opposed to studio g...

there's a silver face on eboy right now for US$5. I saw it. Kind of f-ing POINTLESS, until I can get the search function to unearth the directions to mod it. Or if someone knows more? By the time I do, it will be so gone though. $5 is ridiculous. The guy selling it has absolutely no idea what he's ...

actually, my uncle is the one who performed the modifications (he's an EE at Raytheon), but he's got a pretty hectic schedule. OTOH, he only followed some instructions my cousin found with a quick Google search. he did have to "fix" a few things cos, in his opinion, the guy who came up with the mod...

oh, and there's this mod that involves replacing the ceramic caps with mylar ones and one or two opamps that can be changed out. i'll ask him about it if anyone's interested. I am, kind of. I'm still looking to buy one, maybe pay someone to do the mods. I've heard that it's credited on so many good...

I remember something about that, but can't seem to find it with the search function. Do you remember what it was called, or how I can find the thread?

I dont bother. When I first got an HD3 rig, I went nuts and recorded like 7 million gb of acoustic stuff. Too bad that was one song.. ;) I have never done a session with enough elements @ 192 to even really care at all. 88.2 gets me way up outside the nyquist filters that I DO care about, but beyon...

Is it just me, or is autotune nothing like a transparent effect at this stage? It seems that I hear it ALL THE TIME, and it is always blatantly obvious that it is there. Is this on purpose ("ooh, look see how we can sound like that wretched Cher song"), or is it just the nature of the beast? You ar...

It depends on your upstream bandwidth as well as download. The more you are sharing with others, the faster your own download goes as well.

My two cents:

t-racks: isn't worth the hard drive space it takes to install.

Ozone: I like the multiband exciter, but turn elsewhere for most of my finalizing processes.

a combo of a Pultec and an 1176 (just barely compressing, if any) I was about to suggest the same with LA2A in place of the 1176. It's not so much that this sounds like tape as much as it frequently sounds good to my ears. As far as the plugs that claim to sound like tape... I think people are chas...

The Voxengo analogflux plugin suite was $80, and included a ton of other useful stuff. I'm not suggesting it's a Studer though :?
