    Apple Logic Pro X - "Logic Pro X, an end to Logic ?"

    by livewidmusic on 07-23-2014 08:00 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=169678" alt="" title="Apple Logic Pro X - "Logic Pro X, an end to Logic ?"" /></p>Logic Pro X as the Apple website clearly states "The most advanced version of Logic ever" (which I completely do not agree with and we will come to that shortly) is the latest digital audio workstation in the Logic family, for songwriters and engineers. Compose, Record Audio, Play Midi, Edit, Flex, Mix, Master and Bouncing are the main core features that Logic X provides, similar to any other DAW out there. With a download size of 828MB directly from the Appstore and an extra 35GB of additional instruments, plugins and loops, this "64-bit only" Logic X runs on smoothly from OS X 10.8.4 or upwards with a minimum of 4GB RAM. Logic X supports 255 audio, software instrument and auxiliary channels with unlimited number of midi tracks, with 15 plugin slots and 8 effects send slots for each channel strip. Since I have given a quick positive introduction to this new version of Logic (for those who are new to Logic X), having used Logic Pro 9 for the past 6 years, I have to sadly say that Logic X is a clear disappointment for Logic Users. The reason why I am mentioning only "Logic users" is because I am pretty sure Logic X's initial customers/clients would be previous owners of Logic 9 or earlier. Being one among them and seeing other users around me, first and foremost, the initial setup does not include a .DMG file, rather, the installation and download process is done directly via the Apple Appstore. The Initial install takes around 2GB space on the system and then another additional 35GB content needs to be downloaded (this will take time but you can resume your work with Logic X minimising the download window) to get Logic X in its full shape. The Manual is clear by its own terms. The Key commands have changed for certain functions, which is very irritating for professional musicians and producers. When you call it a new version, you never expect the key commands to change. This takes time off from people and lead to confusion. Sadly, I got used to the new key commands, even though I later started using the old Logic 9 key commands on Logic X, as it was not working and slowed me at times. Logic X being 64-bit supports only 64bit audio plugins and virtual instruments. Another Headache. Opening Logic 9 sessions (Logic X supports sessions from Logic 5 and upwards) on Logic X might look very cool. But when you start playing the session, you face errors and pops. Audio regions are sometimes mis-placed. 32bit plugins seems to work with the Logic's built in audio bridge for 32bit to 64bit. But this is only for certain plugins, and there it is finally - "Your first Crash" . The new "Auto save" feature is a great help. But I don't think anybody would want to keep re-visiting previous auto-backup save sessions every 5 minutes? The basic and general functions are almost similar to previous versions. The Arrange window seems to have certain locational variations otherwise Logic X looks quite compact and sleek with a taste of Garageband software here and there. Everything seems to work and function faster when compared to previous versions of Logic. For first time Logic X users, you will definitely enjoy the look and design of it.

    Vox AC15CC1 - Versatile,excellent tone and punch!

    by Pjones9 on 07-23-2014 01:39 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=34465" alt="" title="Vox AC15CC1 - Versatile,excellent tone and punch!" /></p>The Vox AC15 is a 15w, single channel all-tube (three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 tubes to drive a single 12" Celestion G12M Greenback) amp. It has a external speaker input switchable between 8ohm and 16ohms, with the purpose of powering an external speaker cabinet, and another extension speaker jack, which can be used to run another 16ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers, to get a more powerful sound. It also features tremolo (with depth and speed controls) and reverb, both of which are also switchable but via a two button foot switch. This amp offers two channels: Normal and Top Boost. Each channel has its own volume control, and the Top Boost channel includes Treble and Bass tone controls. Even if it's only a 15w amp, it can get surprisingly loud, not enough to fill an arena but for small venues it's ideal. The Vox AC15 is perfect for genres like blues, rock, vintage music and indie because of its classic tube tone.

Natural wood finish. 24" The guitar is handmade in Switzerland by luthier Patrick Hufschmid. The H6E is the basic model with a volume, tone and 3 way pickup selector. The volume knob is very sensitive and it is very easy to clean up the signal. I rarely use the tone know, but it is the same story there, very sensitive adjustments. Pickups are handmade from Kent Armstrong him self, very clean sounding. Hardware is hipshot products, can't remeber the exact specs, but it works just like it's supposed to.

    Yamaha DXR10 - Very good speakers

Rehearsals Blues-Rock group singing, singing façade small places and back when DXR15 front is used for sound to all instruments, outdoor example. I like the sound definition for a model of this price, the bass that are present for a 10 "horizontal dispersion which ensures good return out of the shaft. Compared to DXR15 I also find that the connection between frequency woofer and compression is more balanced, smooth, as the 10 "is more comfortable on the lower midrange. The extensive rear connectors: XLR mono, Jack and RCA mono or stereo signals to share with another speaker out via the link, very useful when diffuse background music from a player at a cocktail party. The recess and weight, as the other models, which allows the double well of the bow to the audience. I'll just say that at the covers, I bought RCF models 310A and mm if pregnant float a bit once packed, the opening front / rear system is compatible with the enclosure mounted on foot .. . which is very useful in case of risk averse! I remake that choice without problem, the price performance ratio is excellent

    Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 - Spot-on features and flexibility.

    by robdelap on 07-22-2014 06:42 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=65400" alt="" title="Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 - Spot-on features and flexibility." /></p>There comes a time in every audio engineer's life when you just need lots of I/O at a time; recording drums with a variety of mics, a couple of musician's at the same time, or perhaps you're tired of plugging and unplugging your external gear every time you want to change setups. I'm a hardcore pro tools user, and I felt that avid's options back then didn't fit my needs. The 003 rack just had four preamps, and the other high-end options were just way too out of my league. Fortunately, Avid realized they had to let pro tools go out and play with the other children in the park and so, since pro tools 9, we can all look at the plethora of options out there and choose whatever suits us. Good times. This firewire interface caught my eye because it was one of the first to offer eight preamps, either XLR or line. Two of those can be used for direct instrument inputs, wisely located in the front. Each one has individual phantom power and HPF, though just two of them have pad option and only three phase reversal, which is no big deal if you plan your input list ahead. The real beauty of this interface though, is that it has two ADAT I/O, meaning you can add two additional ADAT-capable interfaces (like the underrated, inexpensive Behringer ADA8000) and get 24 analog I/O at the same time at 44.1Khz, which is more than enough to tackle 90% of mixing and recording situations. This without counting that it also has two dedicated outputs for your monitors and the traditional digital SPDIF I/O, which adds 4 I/O and thus, the 56 in the interface's name. "Liquid" comes from Focusrite's own preamp simulation technology, which is available on XLR inputs 1 and 2. These range from the Avalon 737SP, Helios, Neve 1271, Focusrite's own RED 7, UA's 610 and a couple more. The simulation, or 'color' of the preamps can be varied with an "Harmonics" knob, located in the software controller of the interface. Frankly, with the amount of processing we put on today's music, I feel preamp voodoo comes after to musician's performance, instrument quality, a faithful mic and it's placement. That being said, I've been surprised more than once with the timbre changes these simulations give; you can really feel a difference and most of the time for good. I'm particularly fond of the Neve 1071 simulation and I reserve these inputs for lead instruments or vocals. Most of the deeper features of the interface are controlled through Saffire's MixControl software. It's main purpose is for signal routing, say, connecting 'Analog 1' to 'Line Out 8'. This is of little relevance if you're mixing in your DAW since most of the routing should be done there, but some cool things can be done here, like routing two independent monitor mixes from your DAW to the headphone outputs, sparing the need for headphone amps fed through analog outputs in some situations. Oh yeah, it also features a loopback virtual input so that you can record whatever comes out of the interface, just watch out for feedback!

    Zoom G9.2tt - A monster in a toy body

    by Nyveak on 07-22-2014 04:16 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=95555" alt="" title="Zoom G9.2tt - A monster in a toy body" /></p>A range of effects and modulations quite staggering, all editable, modifiable with a whole bunch of equalizers, noise gates and so on ... Anyway! Manuel STRONGLY advised to use this pedal as it should. Modulations are mainly analog but two lamps can add the beans and a "tube amp" button on your belongings. There are normal audio inputs and outputs, made MIDI and a system of "looper" which really is not one and I unfortunately never really managed to understand ... In short this pedal is a gas plant where everything can be hacked in his small adjustments, maisis at the same time offers a range of preset patches ranging from fairly complete clean up big, mushy metal. In addition it has two pedals that can be assigned to all modulations. The second even offers a dual effect since can be used both vertically and horizontally (it gives free rein to all fantasies as a more or less friendly or weird!)

    Gibson Midtown Custom - Ebony - Worse and worse ...

A gibson logo flatters ego of musician, but I would still like to shed light on this guitar devastating look enticing on paper, but the quality of frankly dubious achievement for the listed price and what one is entitled to expect of a brand like Gibson. _table and flat bottom plywood _filet multiplication table _manche glued "mahogany" worked vulgar or otherwise derived from low-end mahogany orange coarse grain and very soft. I repaired a handle deMidton there a few months, I handle fully sanded, it is close to the wood crate; without exaggeration. _touche black composite resin _inlays key in perloid (= plastic imitation pearl) _filet key covers the ends of frets (= freight binding) _logo head and split diamond stencil way, namely thick perloid imitation pearl on which is painted a black stencil leaving tranparence appear in the logo of the U.S. firm and the famous split diamond characteristic upmarket Gibson ... before it type of shovel. Fillet table that protrudes from the surface of the wafer within a two notches, polished in a hurry and just dry varnished (a piece of cloth marked its fiber this one when I reattached head ...), nets key scraped by a lumberjack, polishing leaves to be desired (it does not "vintage" or "weathered" but simply broken) ... I already had this impression finishing misnamed on the model I repaired it a few months ago, it confirms this deplorable. Objectively, this guitar is less well done that quite Epiphone models I&#39;ve seen lately, it said. I also repaired two Epiphone les paul recent Chinese (neck broken at the head, a classic) and a gibson SG standard 95 there is little wood handle of midtown is identical to that of the two epiphone there or one of the gibson SG was a denser mahogany, dark and tighter than the Midtown grain. On this point, really, it&#39;s just okay.

    Neutrik NYS-SPP-L1 - Good product!

It seems a little fragile connection / disconnection but I have no problem with, it works fine. For the price it's still okay to Neutrik therefore finish and manufacturing quality level. Using little patch levels to route my lines it holds the road yet to connect my devices, it does not change the sound that is very neutral! This is exactly what we asked ... I would do this choice because the price is correct, but the second patch if need be certainly something better.

Quality is to go and the construction is very solid, the finish is really good! XLR patch in there is very little pattern, I hesitated a bit to buy it because I did not know the brand, so I really do not regret! The connection is solid after several connections and disconnect it does not move. I love the possibility of reversing the connection that allows two patch for I / O. I bought it in Germany in a well reputed suppliers! I would do this choice without a doubt!

    Mindprint En-Voice - The Swiss Army Knife!

The lamp operates only on the floor EQ / Compressor. 50 and 100Hz low cut that's good! I installed 19 "in my home studio connected only output / XLR input because I do not use the line input XLR in my case. I use it on vocals and acoustic / electric guitars. The available effects are noticeable on the compression and saturation of the lamp allows for a slightly more acute / saturated sound. Effects we can say but personally I think it's great not particularly convincing saturation of the lamp is very light and perceptible mainly voice. But it's very nice to have!

Selector 5 positions I missed and serious micro dépareillait a bit with the other two, and I did not want not modify the original wiring. So I wanted to try the famous microphones. And once the change, taking care to make recordings with the original config, you can not tell the difference between originals and MS Tornadoes, except it took me back a little strings, because the magnets should be stronger than those of the ancients. But what is the sound is stunning.

    by Vahlalafollower on 07-21-2014 06:49 PM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=197870" alt="" title="ENGL E212VHB Pro Straight 2x12 Cabinet - The top of the range 2x12" /></p>2x12 cabinet, equipped with Celestion V30, one of the references in the rock / metal and other field. The sound output is more than high! The front grille protects very well hp mishandling, it is very useful in small concert halls and everyone comes in! on the other hand, weight and space level, is necessarily less cool: it's heavy, and it takes almost as much space than 4x12 The sound is well defined, although a little directional. I put diffusors home TubeTown above to reduce the effect of beaming V30 that are deemed highly directional. Being granted Drop C, and playing pretty extreme music, we can say that the speaker plays its role! the large size of the beast allow it to have a good definition in the bass (the palm mute out well, though perhaps a little too much resonance with his "bhmm" kind of notes at the end: it is corrected by including molo from the EQ of the amp) If you do not have diffusors / beam-blocker, I still recommend to raise the baffle history to improve the dissemination of sound. The price / quality ratio is good, especially occasion! ENGL is deemed to make good stuff, and their expertise has been implemented on their range of baffle too. The grid is a lot when spinning with a group and the Tolex seems to hold, despite the wear of time. Due to its weight, it is better to install clockwork, your back will thank you! For me, it is the high-end 2x12! the only elements that drive change is to switch to a 4x12, which then stop the music. The only downfalls of this cabinet are "directional" next to HP (problem solved with diffusors) and its weight (partially solved by adding casters)!

    Peavey Marvel Punisher Leather Guitar Strap - Basic but worth the money

    by Splonge on 07-21-2014 05:27 PM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=135730" alt="" title="Peavey Marvel Punisher Leather Guitar Strap - Basic but worth the money" /></p>Leather Strap distributed by Peavey, part of the Marvel collection: there are different models look more or less teens. The characteristics of the series appear to be the same, regardless of the figure. About Model "Punisher", the metal is visual rather successful. The pattern has two halves skulls in stylized graphics and gore at a time (splinters, bullet): one white and one, larger, gray. In fact, the contrast with the black strap that is poorly distinguished gray design ... so we see mostly white skull, it is a shame. In the back (in the middle) logos "Peavey" and "Marvel" written in white are a little big for my taste and a bit too visible. But some may appreciate clearly show references. The quality of the leather is good, quite thick in the main part and thinner in the small piece that allows you to adjust the length. The flip side is suede, so it's slip and it offers good comfort, especially the strap is wide enough to distribute the weight on the shoulder. Unpacking, the illustrated Surface reveals some slight fold marks that appear gradually disappear with use. They would still be better to introduce rolled rather than folded accordion strap, it would avoid this (small) inconvenience! The total length is however a fair bit: by adjusting the strap longer, they never play with the guitar on the leg (yes, I know, this is not the best position, but they are people who prefer to twist wrist and adopt fingerings for the lumberjack look ...): we therefore, the longer the guitar on the stomach, "standard" position neither too high nor too low. The shorter, the instrument can be quite high in the armpit (bassists friends, hello!) But only if the insert button strap on the guitar in the first two holes. We can then play comfortably and - for those who love, of course - but with two drawbacks: - We are left with a few inches of leather dangling since we did not use the last hole of the belt (y'en that you do not mind, but as knowledge); - More annoying: the strap is shortened, the pattern "Punisher" is positioned higher and, hence, face, we do not see more: white death's head (the most visible, so) is found at the top of shoulder ... it will undoubtedly potential spectators placed on the ceiling of benefit, but the benefit of this strap based mainly on the visual, it is a bit silly. In short, we have a pretty good strap, original design but seem a little short for some. To be selected taking into account its way to wear his bass or guitar, then. That said, for just € 18, there's no hesitation: it's well worth it and you can change its look a bit from time to time if you prefer not to use main strap. Style lovers, treat yourself!

Once the operation is done, the result is very good there roundness is warm, the clean well respect the philosophy Tele ie it does not distort the sound we recover the bases especially fashion single coil after switching to dual mode allows for better back of drives throughout the rest of the vintage with a modern twist, I have a preference in single mode ... I combined with Duncan STK -T2B, for the passage in single mode / dual provide a push-pull 250K default installation this is dual mode, microphones I took to replace a kit DiMarzio Kotzen on a U.S. TV Standard .. . no regrets

    Fender 45-100 Light Long Scale 9050L - It sizzles and it's not hot!

Have not tried other brands, I must say that it is more the price that attracted me. After all, it is the coiled metal wire with another flat metal, not rocket science. So no product and other fancy dipped in a miraculous product that last strings, we are in a good old classic rope like I wanted. What I like the most? Well the sound, it changes us from slamming his current team and painful that all low, there is more wealth in the medium. Contrary to what I've read, the slap pass well above (provided they do not try to sound Mark King!). What is more striking than in the Roundwound, the aging of these strings, the first few weeks, the sound slap much (without having the annoying character Roundwound), then the sound becomes muffled and chubby. I recommend these strings at very good price / quality and well vintage report!
