FS: SP mics, ART & Focusrite Pres, MOTU Interface

Post by trashy » Wed Dec 05, 2007 3:26 pm

Changing some things around in the studio... also I'm broke as hell. Your chance to rip me off!


Studio Projects B1 - nice little chinese condenser. I really like it on acoustic guitar. It's worth it for that role alone, but it work great on all sorts of other things. $70, shipped.

Studio Projects B3 - not as bright as the B1, but it's multi-pattern. This is a very useful mic. I kinda don't want to sell it. grrr... if you want to just paypal me money for me being such cool dude, that's fine. If you want this mic you can give me $115. But I'd much prefer the free money.

I also have a (as in one) shockmount that will fit these mics; if you want it add ten bucks.

ART Dual MP - This is a two channel pre, but one of the channels is out. I tried replacing the tube for that channel - didn't work... so, that's the extent of my fix it skillz. Hella. It's a nice one channel pre now. $70, shipped.

Focusrite Penta - this is a weird piece. One channel pre coupled with a two-channel compressor. But there are l/r direct inputs for the comp, so you basically get a stereo compressor. The pre is a little too clear for my taste, but I like the compressor. Very opto-y. I have the instruction manual... I think. $230, shipped.

MOTU 1224 & PCI-324 - a great 8 channel interface. The headphone jack doesn't work for some reason. I dunno. I'm not the only one who's had problems with the 1224's headphone jack. Stupid unicorn. Anyway, I now record to laptop, so this isn't helping me any. The PCI-324 is the interface card for your computer. When I bought this piece there was much talk on the internet about it not working in OS X, but I used it in OS X just fine. I love this interface. Anyway, the interface, the card, and the cable - $245 shipped.


Also, I will trade for a Wii...


Thanks!
Phil

Thing I love about the TOMB #314 : Totally random comments that are hilarious even though I have NO idea what they mean.

I forgot to mention that the Penta has a pretty nice DI, too.

i'm into the penta, i read great reviews, but i'm wondering if you know of a mod to bring adjustable attack/release controls to the compressor?

the attack and release are totally adjustable... in a weird way. The Penta has 16 compressor presets, all of these with differing attack and release times. Each of these presets have adjustable threshold, make-up, ratio, attack, and release settings starting at the individual settings for each preset. So, the control positions are not absolute values, but rather relative to each preset. It's far less confusing than it sounds, it just means that you have to - gasp - use your ears instead of remembering a number.
