I use Logic Pro X like a tape machine. I even throw a UAD tape plugin on the tracks! I usually ignore the tempo, key and time division settings. Just arm tracks and blaze. Then go back and edit things to my liking. Muting, cutting and pasting. Or using automation to control amplitude and pan. I actu...

But the only notable difference was individual outs. And there is a way to accomplish that with the OG A4. Whoa. How do you do that? Overbridge. I don't use it because it only works at 44k, and my whole system is 88.2 and better converters. But I also usually end up only making two sequences on the...

Ok I'm going for the Elektron Analogue 4, I've owned 4, funny enough, but have not got on with it, I was going to say it sounds bad, but I'd rather say shite, too much menu diving, weak sounds, and just encourages the 4x4 monotonous techno crap that anyone could do. Has a cool sequencer but it only...

Forgot about this thread. One thing that comes to mind was the OP ticking off the features of the Behringer. One of them being the multiband EQ. That used to be one of my have-to-have features on any mixer. I know the first dozen mixers I bought all had to have mid sweep EQ. The thing I eventually l...

IMHO vibey and organic sounding derives mostly from the filter. The moog lowpass filter is quite well regarded. But I worship at a different church. Just about any synth with the Oberheim SEM filter is just off the charts amazing sounding. It can do a very warm soft sound. But also sharp aggressive ...

From what I understand the older converters are great too. The new ones are better, but it’s not the same jump in quality as with old MOTU and their current AVB stuff. Also, I think the MADI only works with other Apollo 16 units. It’s how you cascade them without saturating FireWire. That is also a ...

Honestly one of the biggest features of Elektron stuff is that it takes MIDI seriously. The Rytm does not. It would be a mistake to go down the Elektron dead end path, IMO , of course. :roll: Very diplomatically put sir, personally I though that Elektron suggestion was a bit misguided :despair: How...

most of the older Alesis stuff is 9V AC. not Dc, AC. With AC polarity doesn't matter. Voltage and amperage do. Just make sure it's the right volts. and not less than the stated amperage. I'd guesstimate that a 500ma wall wart would do the trick. It's not a problem if the power supply has more ampera...

I think the Reflex is overlooked because it has such a corny name.
It's seen as one of those downmarket mistakes.

I had a similar experience going from MOTU 828 MKII to UAD Apollo 8. The old MOTU worked for me for a long time. But I always had a rough time with complicated sounds like cymbals, electric guitar. And all my synths just sounded flat. Somehow I was able to get a good mix with that setup, but it woul...

Fair to say that DT770 and HD650 are leading the pack at least in terms of mentions so far.
A fair number have also mentioned the Sony MDR series. These people are psychopaths. Do not trust them.

I'll almost always recommend the Machinedrum. You can still get these for a decent price, and it's a very solid performer. I'm still squeezing new things out of mine.

I used 7506 for years. The person who mentored me in live sound swore by them. And in the early 90's there weren't a ton of options. I upgraded to the V600 for a while. More bass was the only difference. Later I got into some AKG 240's for a long time. Way less harsh than the 7506. But those AKGs ar...
