I've read as much of this as I could. A lot of good responses. I'll distill my response down to this: Checklist: -pocket maglite, in pocket at all times get will get stuck on occasionally, don't be embarrassed) -3 or 4 sharpies, 1 in pocket at all times (it will leak, don't wear really good jeans) -...

Thanks fairfiew. I was wondering how this technique was working for people. This is certainly preferable to putting a cheap label on CD that will work itself loose over time. Though the initial investment is daunting, if I am wasting 50% of the labels I buy do to misprints, I suppose this could save...

2" 16 track in Washington

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/msg/847280974.html Not mine, I have no connection to it whatsoever, I just saw it on Craigslist, and it's killing me seeing it sitting there. I'm not in a position to buy it right now. Seems like a very good deal. If you're in Seattle and want to go get it, I might ...

CD Labeling suggestions?

So the computer tech side of my brain lectured people endlessly on the dangers of DIY printed CD labels when used in computer optical drives, particularly slot loads in laptops. But the professional musician and aspiring indie label side of my brain cringes when I hand someone a disc with the tracks...

Eh, I am just being whiny. I've lasted this long. Another few weeks won't kill me. I was reading on the UAD forums about people waiting 6 weeks for the Quads. That is just brutal. It'll be 3 weeks since I placed the order on Monday. So I'll have waited at least 4 weeks by the time it arrives. Glad t...

This is the thread that just keeps giving. Thanks again guys. I feel like I'll have a good idea about the character of these plugs before I get them. And it's reassuring to see such rabid fans of the UAD. I don't think I've ever read anything negative or even lukewarm about the UAD plugs' sound. Yea...

Thanks for all the helpful posts guys. You are confirming what I'd hoped was the case with the UAD plugs, especially the Neves. I plan on using the hell out of the Neve EQ's and compressors. The channelstrip is a bonus. I will certainly test the UAD echo (when it's ready for UAD-2) against the real ...

Ebay is a good starting point for a ballpark price. Yes, you could run Pro Tools on it easily. No display. I could maybe provide a KB/Mouse. It does have airport, but I may pull it and sell it separately. If you are in Cincinatti, not sure the shipping would be worth it for you. But we could talk ab...

Bump. I am moving next week. It would be good to not move this stuff.
Sorry, no prices, make an offer.

I am pretty sure I am keeping the Speaker stands.

PM me with questions or offers. Prefer Seattle area only at this point, but open to all offers.

Put my UAD-2 Nevana 64 on order yesterday!

I'm throwing it in a slightly less than year old 3Ghz 8 core Mac Pro.

I have a great sound card, speakers, and pretty much all the instruments I need.
I believe I will officially be out of excuses....

UAD-2 Nevana 64 is on order. Hellz yeah. This is the part where I fess up that I have never even used or seen the UAD plugs in action. I am putting total faith in reviews, word of mounth, and internet posts that these are truly the shiznit. I am really looking forward to the Neve stuff. The Fairchil...

Thank you. At last something to drown out the opening synth line from "Take Me To the Top" by Loverboy that has been playing constantly in my head. Though I swear I've not heard it since I was 11 years old. Enjoy/suffer here: http://www.last.fm/music/Loverboy/_/Take+me+to+the+Top You can waterboard ...
