Lexicon Reflex reverb for $20 from a friend! Never had a "way better than decent" hardware 'verb before, this is a lot of fun.

Oops. I needed another bass VI like I needed...another guitar...
I have the exact same one, I like it much better than the Fender Jaguar Baritone Custom it replaced.

Bought a EHX Bass Clone Chorus and a Small Stone - great stuff for low prices (used on the Ebog).

And these 3 K'rean puppies:

I ended up selling this one a couple weeks ago, but I have another I kept that I switched the pickups out for Lace Alumitones.

Cuppla pedals, The Soundblox2 OFD, what is an interesting digi-distortion allegedly cloning various sounds. I've triued it on guitar and it was usable for recording thru an amp, lotsa variations in sound and flexible; we'll see if it makes it onto my bass board.

Also got a Micro-Pog what apparently has the T1m mod what gives, essentially the ability to set it up with two different sounds. I think it was subsequently mod'd to stack the subs in one "channel", as opposed to having the two settings identical - ver' cool!

I also rec'd a Duncan Power Grid I've not tried out yet.

Finally, what with LED TV's being so cheap, I put a 17" with a digi-antenna and built-in DVD in my bedio for recording inspiration, and so I can wartch the news when files are rendering.

I got some Lindy Fralin "Split Jazz Bass" pickups for the bass at the studio.

He makes them 2 & 2 with the second pair reversed so even though they are single coil pickups they are hum cancelling.
Mighty handy in the studio for bass, which ends up getting compressed in and out.

T-Rex Reptile, I do love some delay and this is so nachural sounding, what can go to tape modulation, also. This might just replace the Memory Toy on my board, altho' it's 2x the size ...

I bought a $100 iTunes GC for $85 a couple weeks ago. With that, I added Beatmaker 3 (amazing, despite the suspicious name), Audio Damage Replicant 2, Grind, and EOS 2 apps to my iPad. Killer.

I also finally broke down and placed an order for an onde magnetique cassette echo.

Traded in two Digidesign 192s for a Focusrite RedNet 2 and a Focusrite HD32R.

These will enable my older Pro Tools TDM system to communicate with more modern DANTE technology, and also the converters should
be WAY BETTER.

I am so happy Focusrite gave us this opportunity.
Howling at the neighbors. Hoping they have more mic cables.

Hi,

We received the units today, and have set them up with my laptop for now. Ordered the Avid minidigilink to digilink adapter to plug it into the HD cards. Should have it next week up and running.

I will put that review on this post:

picked up a yamaha AD824 8 channel A/D converter (w/ preamps!) w/ ADAT out card to expand my Apollo Twin...came with AES card as well. Not a bad buy...Made in Japan, better conversion than say a Motu 828mk2 imho. 2 rack unit though! Big.
