I bought this bass amp when looking for a portable but punchy combo for playing small gigs. At that time I worked playing in a Disco covers band in small, medium and sometimes big venues (weddings and graduation ceremonies) and I loved the sound, power and definition it has. I run my Fender 60's Jazz Bass through it and with some compression, EQ and balance I can get a powerful tone, rich in basses but with clear articulation and definition of the high and mid end. I was also impressed with its versatility; the possibilities of tone shaping are endless.
The Hartke 122c features:
-1 x 12-Inch 300 watt HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone driver
-250 watts of power, 1-Inch titanium compression driver, EQ, 7-band graphic EQ, Bass and treble controls,
compressor with LED indicator,overdrive, and an XLR balanced direct output, which is very useful when playing in large venues, however I hardly used it. The XLR output of mine doesn't sound that good when recording, it's ok for demos, but in studio I wouldn't use it.
-The amp also features harmonics, brite and mix FX controls.

As an arranger and composer I've been faced multiple times with the task of choosing a writing software, and time after time I've chosen Sibelius. The seventh version was a little hard to get used to, though, as major changes were introduced in the interface.
To begin with, it is fairly easy to install, though it requires more than 40 GB of space (that could be easily avoided if one could choose not to install the sample libraries). I found no compatibility issues with Win 7 (either version) or with my M-Audio Fast Track.
If you come from previous versions you'll find yourself a little lost for a while. But the new interface (employing 'ribbons' of tools instead of menus) is actually more practical once you get the hang of it. The new placement of the utilities makes it easier to perform complex functions (like voice swappings, etc.) because now it takes two clicks at the most and everything is sorted out by category.
Learning the ropes is really easy: I never had to resort to tutorials, as most functions are very intuitive. Also, the search bar (that allows you to find any function or tool) is an invaluable time saver. The Magnetic Layouts and Dynamic Parts are also awesome features (especially the last one, that automatically generates the parts for the general score you've written).

Writing for electric guitar presents a lot of difficulties when it comes to traditional scoring software, so since its first version Guitar Pro has been a must for every guitar player that wants to leave a detailed written version of their creations or transcriptions. For some, it has even become a part of the composition process in guitar-oriented tracks (a clear interface and a focus on speed writing are crucial tools).
That being said, I was sad to see I was having problems with Guitar Pro 6 from the moment I installed it. It took me a while until it recognized my EMU Tracker Pre or my M-Audio FastTrack. The interface is accessible enough but confusing to those who come from previous versions of Guitar Pro and wish to continue working in the same fashion (I'm not complaining about improvement here, Sibelius 7 was a big step forward because it was actually easier to use once you got used to it).

It is a wooden crate Taylor made in Mexico.
Well, not quite anyway: the table is made of spruce, the ebony fingerboard, the rest of the chipboard and sapele (or sapele, a kind of ersatz mahogany) and headstock veneer is Lexan bodies like scale models.
The handle is attached to the body with two screws (yes, with two esses, it's maousses screws) as if you had done to the guitar by your boyfriend what unemployed carpenter.
Frets y'en enough anyway on an acoustic I never play above the tenth fret.
Microphones normally there is none but on mine the previous owner put a Bill Lawrence choking a little resonance of the guitar and sounds great when plugged in, so I can advise you to do the same.

A Large Diaphragm Condenser (LDC) microphone, this mic has passed the test of time and even evolved into his C 414 XLS cousin. This one should be in any serious engineer's mic locker.
It features 4 polar patterns: Omni, figure 8, cardioid and hyper cardioid. On the back you'll find an attenuation switch (0, 10 and 20dB) and a HPF (0,75 and 150).
I've seen this mic in several packaging versions. Mine came with a sturdy and practical shockmount that holds the mic with a twist on the base and a slide-on pop filter, all of this in a lunch box plastic case with the foam cutout for holding everything in place.

Buy Used but totally reconditioned by vintagevibe end of 2013.
Before have I had my Wurlitzer VST Arturia then Pianet T Hohner.
What I like the most, sound, mechanical heat ... We feel for the game and it affects the approach of the keyboard, a real pleasure!
The small flat, fragile and difficult to transport without having to open and set 2/3 stuff.
A little expensive, but it is a real investment and if I had the choice again I would not hesitate a moment.

modeling amp (DSP) comprising ("Ad Text" + reviews):
- Technology PST (True Valve Power) which simulates the response and tone power tube amp for a true dynamic
this is not fake, the biggest difference is that the sound does not "move" not to the heating of the lamp, which is not necessarily a defect D)
- Similar to a tube amp Power
sight of nose and ear I would say that's correct, 15W flat with volume knob at noon
and neighboring arrievent even faster than the Ibanez GX60 knob fully, D)
The big bonus is then the headphone output with level "simulation of real output"
- Settings editable at will through the GUI (Graphic User Interface) program to refine its sound, save and record directly to your computer, create loops or play with his own backing tracks in MP3 ...
It is not completely wrong but firstly I find the current ergonomics program
("Blackstar Insider") directed more teen dating forum that amp settings (interface
NET under, sniff ...) despite some good ideas (eg. comparison of his "base" / "current")
Unfortunately anihilées by NET style used (eg previous implies return top of the list).
and other announcements installation / stabilization app is horrible even with a "real" full windows7, yet does not run under wine or CodeWeavers and if "works" under
Virtualbox, at least with me (I've seen cases on the web who were reached) is
a bit clumsy having to launch a virtualization 2G RAM (NET. + Silverlight require)
just for for the amp while the rest of the apps that I would use at the same time
also have a need for memory space and clock ticks quite crucial: D)
In short, the hardware and the software are extra DSP (note 9 +) but the "INSIDER" (interface
user GUI) is again almost completely (note 3 -).

This epiphone was the second guitar in my life. I’ve sold my first one to buy this LP from my cousin, mainly because I was 16 years old and wanted to be Jimmy Page. Had it for some good 3 years before moving on to something better and don’t regret it at all. That was quite some time ago, though, at around 2001 there were not as many options of instruments for starters as we have today.
It has the shape of a classic les paul, but the top is flat (unfortunately not the nicer looking arched top like the standard epiphones and gibsons), two humbucker pickups, tune-o-matic bridge, one volume and one tone knob that affects both pickups, one pickup selector with three positions, 22 frets, dot inlays and a pretty nice black finish.

Copy of the Martin 000 42.
Solid Spruce Sitka AA
Back and Sides: Solid Rosewood
Mahogany one piece
Ebony fingerboard and bridge
Dam to the original.
Everything is there except the pickguard that you can add, brand and price.
Mechanical "type" Wavelry (copies).
14 frets non-cash.
Finish polyurethane clear and bright.
V handle slightly, not very Martin, so.
When I was in the school of violin I built a copy of the Martin 000 Eric Clapton. I will not compare these two guitars, it would not be objective. The Recording King is a guitar + / - € 600 I had 400 and I normally have the offer. The gift could not be done, I finally found a use. The seller wanted more but I decided to give him a job for free on another guitar.
Recording King is an American brand that was prestigious. Today, guitars are still designed in the USA but built in China.

I make soundtracks for videogames and after more than enough time writing all the lines for my midi instruments in Logic’s piano roll I decided to buy a controler to make the whole production process faster and more musical. The chosen one was this M-Audio KeyRig 49.
It has four octaves of velocity sensitive keys (but no aftertouch!), a modulation wheel, a pitch bend wheel, a volume fader, octave up/down buttons, an ‘edit’ button (more on that later), sustain pedal input, on/off switch, finally the usb port to connect it to your computer (no ac needed), and absolutely nothing else.
Construction is pretty good, but feels like it would get damaged if you drop it from a not so short height. No worries if you're always leaving it in the studio, just keep the box in case you need to move it somewhere else. Overall I really like the clean no-knobs look of it and its silver color.

amplification and preamp: all lamps. Lamps amplification stage are EL 34 siemens NOS (New Old Stock armies of the east) ie the rolls lamps, some even compare to the famous Mullard. I have two lamps retube amplification last week and so I contacted the dealer who confirmed that these lamps were admittedly a bit expensive (170 pair) but the manufacturer took the option to in his amps ultra efficient lamps from the outset to achieve very good sound from purchase, proof of the attention given to the manufacture of these amps (same for the rest of the components!)
But the mindset Koch does not stop there, the wiring lamps allows to change lamps in pairs and so do not have to change all four lights at once (to avoid having to expensive at a retube). The bias are intended to be set in pairs.
connection: an incredible range of possibilities and connections that work! Personally, I love the ability to put effects loops in series AND parallel (reverbs, delays ...). It has a direct output with speaker simulation for recording or to enter a console live without cutting HP: Royal and without distorting the sound of the amp.
Ability to add HP (but 50 or 100W lamps I do not use it)
A super comfortable detail: two inputs for single coil or humbucker for (dig a little mediums): ideal for those who have a favorite strat, gibson a shot and as for the rest, it works really well!
Reverb (accutronic spring) is very respectable and it is easily disconnectable (RCA) for those who like me insert a unit of effect.
Power output: 50W and 100W in triode and pentode with a switch on the rear panel. I used 50W sound suits me better (roots) but tests 100W is equally compelling for a slightly more modern game. Anyway, the sound is great in both cases. (See "Tones")
settings: a highly effective and very fine equations per channel (clean / crunch and saturated), see chapter "sounds". A volume control for each channel and separate drive. A mix knob reverb or effects loop very end, a speaker damping three positions according to the places where we play and the icing on the cake, two volumes of output (rhythm or solo) switchable by footswitch. complete and ultra comfort!
Each channel is selectable by footswitch (5 switches), which also provides the ability to cut or reverb (or effect loops) + selection of rhythm or solo volume. The pedal is super tough with a cable about five or six meters.

NI decides to take the plunge and propose a mixer which aims hybrid, to manage two analog sources (phono / line) and / or the integrated and up to 4 decks in traktor traktor timecode.
Technical side, the Z2 includes:
- Track A and B in the CAR; phono or line (+ ground for each track)
- To CAR
- Mic in Jack
- A hand out XLR and RCA
- A booth in jack
- A headphone with both formats jack, handy outlet when you do not put this adapter *** ... ^ ^
A plus for the USB 2 (2 slots) HUB useful when you have a small laptop with only 2 slots and that is already taken by the z2 ...
Classical side: slice gain / hi / med / low + filter that works even without computer, fader correct quality and cross more than adequate; each cross faders and is upgradeable with innofaders (possibility of the same on the rane 62 for example).
The cross can be reversed and the curvature is adjustable.
Next mix 2.0; nice and soft backlit push, knobs endless notched for loops (with digital displays for the length of the loop), 2 sections 2 effects knobs, one knob displacement browser + volume control of tracks C, D and.

There were no compatibility issues under Windows XP and 7.
It has the typical configuration setup like any other notation software, as well as a really easy setup. The only counterpart (for me at least) was the MIDI controller setup, since it never accepted my MIDI controller.
Nice user interface and easy to use, since it's really intuitive.
by Dargor on 07-28-2014 05:29 PM
There were no conflicts nor compatibility issues under WIndows XP and 7. The manual is really clear and easy to read, giving you extensive examples and detailed explanation on the program functions and usage.
Really easy setup and configuration straight forward, also very well explained on the manual.
Great interface and all the program's instruments are available on the go, as well as their filters and effects, as something that i gaven't seen often on many other virtual instrument programs.

I have the yamaha 821 dx model above but I did not know or put.
Designed by Rich Lasner office Californian study yamaha. Made in Taiwan. I can tell you it has nothing to do with the current pacifica.
5400 francs bought there 14 years, given you an idea, the fender USA was 4500 francs included case ... So I think that this guitar would be worth in 2000 euros ...
Nothing to say when the quality, it is well above the standard of USA Gibson and Fender!
Lightly flamed maple neck with rosewood fingerboard Rio (now banned wood)
body of a single piece alder while my fender usa is in two parts.
maple wavy AAA quality
very very good floyd rose licensed under stable hyper.
This is by far my most versatile guitar and also my favorite with my old Fender Jaguar 64.
It is what I always take in the studio, because unlike the micro fender, there is no noise and it was a really clean sound (thank you Di Marzio)

Above all I want to say that I just unpack pregnant after completely redo all my home studio A to Z, there are currently no furniture in the room is square outside the office so acoustics room is not great at the moment.
What characteristics have motivated your choice?
- The frequency range announced
- The brand
- The price
For what purpose?
- Sound design analog (modular synth etc.).
- Mix / Mastering digital
- Recreational Listen
What amp / What configuration? ...
- Used with a MOTU Microbook II card (do not buy ...)
- TRS-XLR Cables Cordial
- DAW (Ableton Live)

There were no compatibility issues at all on WIndows 7 32 bits. The manual it's just that, an installation and usage manual, so don't expect it to explain in detail how to use the full potential of the software.
Setup it's really simple and straight forward, so you should not have any issues with it, so as the configuration.

I work with videogame soundtracks and bought a used Zoom H4n to record ambiences and outdoor sounds in general. Mine one has a pretty nice plastic case, an AC adapter (but can run on two AA bateries as well) and an USB cable, and I've bought a separate 16gb SD card to use with it.
It has two condenser microphones, two extra inputs for additional mics (which can be phantom powered) or line DI/sources, and you can use all these 4 channels at once. It records wav files (up to 24bits and 96kHz) and mp3's. The usb cable is not only to transfer files to your computer, but can also make the unit work as a regular audio interface, nice resource.
Besides that, it has a few built-in effects (compressor, amp simulator, delay, etc) that are not good (you might wanna use them to plug your guitar and practice with a headphone... might) and a small speaker that is usefull to have a quick listen to a file and make sure that everything is working fine (of course, you can also do that with a headphone). The construction is robust and it looks like it could handle some hits and falls with no problems.
I don't have much experience with portable recorders, but I can say that the pre amps on the H4n are not as good as the ones from a regular audio interface in the same price range. But they are not awful either: you can get some usable sounds from the stock mics and some very usable sounds if you use a couple external ones. I usually end up always boosting a little top end and cutting a little around 200Hz, 300Hz from the files recorded with the H4n.
One thing I really like is that the stock mics can be twisted to open up the angle of the stereo XY recording, from 90° - good for stereo instrument recordings - until 120° - good for my ambiences because they sound large and fill up the stereo spectrum nicely. Being able to do it without any other mic is really handy.
I don't really like the little screen and think that navigating through the unit's functions could be easier. Anyways, you can still learn how to use it and get your work done.
Overall, even with its problems I think that the H4n is a good product, that does its job well (which for me is to record stuff out of the studio, but you can easily find other applications) without taking much of your money. If I had to buy another portable recorder I would probably look around for other models before just to make sure that there is something better around nowadays (I would trade the effects for better pre amps without thinking twice, for example), but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't find anything as good and as practical as the H4n for this price.
