More things I want, don’t need, and won’t buy

I want an 8-channel compressor/limiter/gate for the drum kit. There are only a couple of problems: My prefered store, Full Compass, only sells a couple of dedicated 8-channel units, which says a lot given the wide variety of things they … Continue reading

some things and stuff, but not necessarily what you expect

Yesterday, I did a show. It was boring, so I’m not going to link to it. IT has been uploaded to the usual place, so if you really want to hear some bad things, feel free to find it yourself. … Continue reading

another thing I want

After playing around a bit with the Audix FF-15 overhead mic, I’ve decided that I now want a hyper-cardioid condensor or dynamic for vocals, not just a standard cardioid. This is due to the fact that, although it’s not designed … Continue reading

As some may recall (those that really care), I had some problems with my Phonic A6500 dual band compressor which I bought it May. It leaned slightly to the left and clipped out in a very bad way. Feeling that … Continue reading
