    Apple PowerMac G5 2x2 Ghz - 9 years! ...

    by shimelo on 01-08-2014 06:32 AM Yes, 9 years that I have this machine must be well 11 in all. Of course it has since been replaced by more recent and is only used occasionally, of course with it not total silence (at least we know it is on), of course it not consume a lot of power, but it is always there when needed and when it is being a good Tiger frankly she fears no one, so much so that Apple was forced to prevent access to Snow Leopard to continue to peddle their ordis! Since it does not even know what a computer is expected in this crazy world of geeks ... Maybe make a return trip to the moon for a week-end to impress colleagues at the coffee Monday morning? ... Although today Apple is always good and able to amaze with its new products, G5, G4 as also in his time, was able to bring me the power, flexibility and I was looking for reliability in inbred Mac without ask me if I had got my money for the time responded to my place. With experience, I would do this choice? Honestly I do not see where was the choice ... Well, just a simple reflection on 30 years of use of the Mac with the note at the end: "A little less marketing, please, Mr. Cook. ..

    Vester Stage Telecaster - Excellent quality / price ratio!

    by nicobackseat on 01-08-2014 04:56 AM Information to be confirmed, I do not pretend to have the truth ... but the current state of my knowledge, it gives this: - Vester is an American brand of 70/80/90 years was known for his good copies of Fender and Ibanez, including ...

    Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 Ohms - "Classy Audiophile headphones"

    by livewidmusic on 01-08-2014 01:19 AM The Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO comes in 32 Ohms, 80 Ohms and 250 Ohms. I went for the 250 Ohms version, as these are very suitable for professional studio monitoring applications and the best among the series for audiophiles especially. This closed reference dynamic transducer headphone is a circumaural headphone constructed to fit around our ears. Weighing around 270 grams, the DT 770 PRO provides a frequency response from 5 - 35,000Hz, providing a nominal sound pressure level up-to 96dB. This headphone has a single sided cable for connection coming with a gold plated 3.5mm mini-jack plug and 1/4'' adapter. I have done extensive research before purchasing the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, as I always do with all my products. After listening to these headphones from various different studios and receiving recommendations from several musicians and artists, I understood that the DT 770 PRO is something serious and still uses it since 1 year. Since I am someone who always travels and arranges music and mix on the go, the DT 770 PRO does an extremely professional job. I had previously used several headphones from different companies (not naming them), but they always failed me. After doing a basic mix with these headphones and when you playback on the monitors, you will realise how well the sound reproduction is produced by the DT 770 PRO. Though I do not suggest to get used to mixing with these, but for a beautiful start and for monitoring and listening to extreme detailing of the sounds and arrangement, this headphone stands out and is one of the best in the market. For $200, these headphones have to be grabbed immediately and are highly recommended for quality sound monitoring. Pros 1) Innovative Bass reflex system. 2) All parts are replaceable. 3) Soft inner pads, hours of playback and monitoring will not give you the slightest fatigue. 4) Reproduces almost 90 % of sound detailing after mixing through these and playing back later on monitors. 5) One among the best Audiophile headphones for monitoring. Period. 6) Not over-priced. Cons 1) No drawstring bag (Promised to come along with the purchase, but I did not get one). 2) The 3.5mm mini-jack is not that strong as it seems to be. A quick mis-handling can destroy the wiring. (This happened to a few of my friends and had to replace the whole headphone). 3) The box this gets shipped with is very amateur and not at all safe. To be honest, did not like the packing at all. 4) Optional ear cushions and travel bags are available for purchase on the website (Something that should have been given along with the purchase. C'mon!). 5) Slight coloration in the high mids and highs while monitoring. 6) Not recommended as recording headphones. Slight leakages noticed. I had planned months before itself to purchase the DT 770 PRO's. After searching for something that could fit softly on my ears, playing back audio for extended hours without any irritation or fatigue, and something that can be used for mixing and monitoring at the same time, Yes, I went with the right choice, and will go for it, even if it was now.

    Elektron Monomachine SFX-6 - Multimachine!

    by linn134 on 01-07-2014 11:39 PM Version keypad SFX60 the SFX6 is a limited edition (500 copies) with a 3 octave keyboard corresponding to the velocity (but not aftertouch). This is a funny box any length which includes the "standard" SFX60 and 3 octaves keyboard with joystick and garland LEDS. We therefore have the characteristics of SFX60 decorated bonus provided by the keyboard, its LEDs, and switches its joystick. As SFX60 must choose between 5 "machines" in parallel or one with 6 voice polyphony. It is multitimbral 6 monophonic voice but on each. Various summaries (called "machines"): - Virtual Analog: Superwave - SID (emulated): SID - FM: FM + - Drums PCM: DigiPro - Formant: VO It is possible to mix the "machinery" and can well use the same six times. So six sequencers in parallel to "turn" these machines with interesting bonus tracks 6 other sequences to control up to six external modules (expanders, samplers, ...).

    Sampletekk TVBO - Very well

    by Dge Be on 01-07-2014 10:31 PM This is a no frills piano. Bass are not swollen as is often the case, the sound is "dry", the overall balance is very good and very important dynamic. Only complaint, the loading time, but hey, given the weight that it includes. I already have a hell of a lot and the only one that seems a little above is Ivory, but I think it's more a matter of habit and taste. The effects are very good, but you do not buy a piano for that. Settings etc. resonances are easy and very clean, you can even push TOO hard if you want to play. This is a high quality piano and frankly, I do not care whether or not an old, sounds, that's all I ask. Alone or in a mix, no Pb, and very enjoyable to play.

    Sennheiser HD 25-1 II - Appreciated ENG Application

    by MattF. on 01-07-2014 09:30 PM I use it for two or three months now. I tried a lot of models that I can not remember much more exact references, Beyer dynamic and Seinnheiser. I think this headset is ideal for use as I did: sound outside (shooting reportage atmosphere) and for sound analysis work requiring very close listening (because, I repeat, we hear everything clearly and not artistically!) If he were to miss a headphone for this kind of work, there are chances that I redo the same choice. Unless you find another model with the same characteristics and whose sound would suit me more, because for the pleasure of listening to music, I orienterais to another product better suited to listening comfort and with a sound more attractive rendering. My ratings for this product naturally take into account its use in the aforementioned professional setting!

    FBT CLA604A - Very good clarity and projection

    by Dnhs5500 on 01-07-2014 07:02 PM Enclosure that are very accurate in acute mediums. The space is small, it's lightweight (10kg) and is discreet visually by its column design. The other thing about this place is its projection in my opinion, let me explain: The first use I was pleasantly surprised with a relatively low volume on the whole the sound is spread efficiently within a reasonable distance. Volume loss related to the distance seemed less than pregnant "classic" design. Moreover, the opening angle is large, so that with the two speakers coverage area is interesting. Finally, even being behind the speaker, or sides, the sound is audible and quality without much effect "choking". A point also well thought lies in the possibility of coupling multiple systems easily and without feet. Indeed, the box can be compact stacker (one on the other) have pregnant with safety pins to fix them to one another and are integrated in the bindings to casing maintain pregnant. The integrated DSP can adapt to different configurations (projection, max spl pregnant coupled) In summary, an excellent speaker who wants to spread wide to medium volume; even if it is far from being ridiculous when you turn up the sound, the power expressed in watts rms pretending well appointment. The original concept of this place, coupled with the sound quality delivered in a very interesting product to discover. Attention because of its design, the subwoofer is indispensable. And when used with housings provided for; namely that the frequency range covered does not drop below 50hz. The value for money is good in my case; I have a stereo system and plans to purchase a second.

    Tornade MS Pickups Strat ’60s serie L - Top notch

    by lagrif on 01-07-2014 05:59 PM I bought this kit to replace the micro original pickups for a strat made in mexico 92/93. I also took the opportunity to replace the electronics (wiring cotton son same as those delivered on microphones) and make a shield. Once everything is put together ... I plug and there is radical change, more noise and hum. I scratch a little rule microphones ... it is a treat to play! I no longer have the same guitar. The sound is very distinct in the bass and treble, no sound loud, it sounds round. I had given up playing with the old pickup, now I love the sound and it's really the one I was looking for. All microphones positions are pleasant to listen to and play ... My favorite positions are the bridge pickup and neck pickup. Attacks on the microphones pick meet at the top. (Strumming technique, it is a treat) Without hesitation, I would do this choice.

    iZotope Ozone 5 - A must-have mastering suite

    by julian_r7 on 07-31-2014 11:28 AM Ozone 5 is a mastering tool that you can use as a plugin with a number of DAWs. I've tried it in both Sonar and Nuendo with excellent results. The installation is completed in the blink of an eye (I didn't experience any compatibility issues on Windows 7 x64 or Windows Vista) and the best part is that Nuendo automatically recognizes the plugin, requiring no intial setup or tedious folder searching. The manual is quite straightforward. But what I feel is the strongest point of Ozone 5 is the intuitive quality of the interface: it is all about generating a nice, understandable visual feedback of every little adjustment you can make. Every tool gets its own separate tab, making for a very straightforward and organized overview. The general layout of the tools and meters has been improved from Ozone 4: the Dynamics Tool (compressors, limiters, etc) shows a more graphical interface that won't take any parameter away from you, but will let you fully concentrate on the audio -if you wish to do so. Every other tool has been refined in terms of graphic accessibility. The snapshot tool (as well as the matching) in the EQ tab are now easier to access.

    Avid Pro Tools 10 - Good upgrade, but too expensive for the features you get.

    by Pjones9 on 07-31-2014 04:52 AM Simply put, Pro Tools is a must have for any serious music producer or/and audio engineer. It has been the standard software for audio productions around the world for more than a decade now. It's compatible with Windows XP, Mac Os,and many more, so compatibility issues are practically inexistent. The manual is detailed and straightforward, it comes with detailed description on the specifications and usage. You can make any kind of music with Pro Tools, and it includes a useful selection of virtual instruments plus more than 60 effect processors. It also has good MIDI and notation-editing features. Edition is simple and fast thanks to the Grid, Slip, Spot and shuffle edition modes. New features not included in previous Pro Tools versions: -Track counts have been upped for v10, which will play back up to 96 tracks at 44.1/48kHz and can record up to 32 tracks simultaneously. -64 virtual instrument tracks, 512 MIDI tracks, 160 aux tracks, 256 busses and one video track. -Clip Gain: Every clip has its own gain fader and the waveform will look bigger or smaller when you raise or lower the gain, which is great visual feedback. -It also runs faster than the previous versions; sessions open faster, fades are calculated in real time and general work flow runs smoother. This all new features may seem impressive, however Pro Tools 10 is not much of an upgrade, and some new features for this DAW were included before in other DAWs. I feel that for the price you're paying, the upgrade for this version is not really worth the fee. However don't get me wrong, Pro Tools is still a really useful and valuable DAW , easy to use, reliable (at least more than many other DAW's out there, like Logic, which crashes all the time) and has great compatibility with external hardware. This upgrade would be more suitable for experienced producers who always need to work faster. But if you have the previous Pro Tools version I'd say you should buy one of the next upgrades which will have probably more valuable features for the price.

    Markbass Traveler 102P-4 - Very good stuff, lightweight and reliable.

    by dwen-d on 07-31-2014 02:54 AM Bought for its weight / power more than the sound itself ... the sound is very good but it is not one I préfèré different speakers that I could test report. After it's just a matter of taste because it works very well. I had two traveler 102p coupled to a head-Gallien Krueger 400RB Series 3 ... enough to deal with almost any situation ... if there is need for more is that we're on a big stage and the sound system broke down lol. Easy to carry, I liked having this column HP 10 'behind me ... very convenient to not have her in the knees and it not take place, easy to squeeze between charley drummer and keyboard that Need to 2 meters wide to install ...

    Vox V809 Repeat Percussion - Top notch!

    by ddn on 07-31-2014 12:12 AM First let me say that what I have is not an original but a clone with many more settings. Mine has an on / off switch, a speed knob supplemented by a switch to extend the adjustment range and depth knob. The idea of ​​Repeat Percussion is to cut the sound as a slicer, even if it is also a little tremolo when the depth is not too much in the right corner. Basically it gives the impression that it is a short sound passed through an analog delay so that he does is he cuts and resets the volume like a killswitch with the impression a very short attack as a percussion hence its name. Ha! It was the challenge of the week to describe the sound of this thing with words!

    Mooer Trelicopter - Means anything.

    by ddn on 07-30-2014 11:57 PM This is a tremolo guitar superpetit format while made in China and it is perhaps because the Chinese have small fingers or because fashion is the micropédale. There is a rule that petitpotard depth depth petitpotard a bias which looks to me to adjust the waveform sine / square, potardnormal speed which adjusts the speed of the tremolo with a really wide range and as it is a little soft it is not easy to dose accurately. Sector only small energy demand so great for a wreath or a very powerful multi-PSU power. What is nice is that it is very small, the pedal then it takes up no space in the pedalboard and which is less nice is that it is very small so it is not easy to well adjust - more if you're kind of awkward every time you move the knob with your foot speed by activating the effect. And the small size makes it that there is little velcro under the pedal so it fits poorly on the pedalboard and if you nag her hand on the side of the switching effect.
