Re: Plugin alliance doing a "leap year sale",,,

They do really nice emulations. I've got a handful of their plugins I've picked up on similar deals (and they do these a lot... Really great community around their plugins if you stumble onto social media, and the owner encourages people to share discount codes/etc). Solid plugins, for sure, and yea...

Re: Meng Qi Wing Pinger

I was tempted to pick one of these up during yesterday's drop of a few units on Meng Qi's Etsy page. Only two banana models were put up, and they were both gone before I could even refresh the page. Saw a couple of the standard eurorack versions up, but I'm mostly banana. Going to wait and see if I'...

Re: Dave Smith Sequential Circuits Prophet X

I've held out hope for a desktop module, but I too think it's probably not going to happen now. Shame, because I really like the X, but I'd have to clear out some stuff if I wanted to fit it in my setup. This is exactly me, as well. No room but would LOVE one in desktop. Sadly, there's some comment...

Re: Is Covid sorting the men from the boys? Re: Availability.

I also have a ton of patience for folks right now. Sellers and manufacturers are dealing with their own personal crisis every day.

Re: Rupert Neve Primary Source Enhancer

So, first do try and find one used. 500 series is never cheap ;) but I picked up my 545 in used condition and I swear it looked unused, for $400. That's not cheap, but it was something I was curious with and for the cash I figured what the heck (plus I was able to expense it through work so win-win)...

Re: Recommend an analog delay

If you aren't completely married to a BBD, and want a very cool, and very playable delay, check out the Bugbrand PT-Delay. There are a few revs and the new/latest models are probably not what you want to spend (unless you really want/need balanced audio), but the 2016 and older models are just as aw...

I would get a Space Echo for that kind of dough. lol
It’s stereo though, so it’s not it’s out of the ball park more expensive than many other EQs.
Was going to say, for a quality two-channel EQ, that's not too bad.

Oh, also, the 511... Yeah, freaking love it. I've had that for a while now and I feel like it grows with me. I of course cranked up the texture and was using different silk modes in the beginning, and I think it sounded great, but as time went on and I wanted a cleaner vocal, the high pass and optio...

If we're talking color boxes Nice boxed lunch! How're you liking the 511. I love the sweeping highpass filter on that thing. That's a beautiful mic pre. Curious about your use of the 545! I thought that was used for live settings to remove feedback from the center microphone. But is there a studio ...

Re: 500 Series: Compressors and EQ’s for Electronic Music Production

I guess while we're discussing this it might be worth commenting on the most bang for the buck cases. Or chassis? Is that what they're called? I went with the Lindell 510 Power MK II. Seemed to be a reasonable investment but maybe folks here know better. The Lindell's are great bang for the buck, f...

Re: 500 Series: Compressors and EQ’s for Electronic Music Production

500 series compressor choices are sort of endless. What type are you looking for? FET, VCA, vari-mu, optical? There are some amazing choices, but depending on what you are looking for, some better than others. Personally, I really like the flexibility of the Neve 543, and the 542 is a cool take on t...

Re: Synth reductionism..or less is less

But that's a big subjective assumption. For you the gear may not be the object but for others the gear may be the whole point of their interest. Owning gear to produce music has no more intrinsic value or merit than owning gear just cause the gear interests you on some level. Some people like to ow...

Re: Still no demos with CXM 1978 and analog synths?

I think the price is coloring the demos for me. As reverbs go, it's not horribly expensive, but in this form factor it seems excessive and I agree that the motorized faders are cool, but completely unnecessary. It's a good sounding reverb, but I'm not really hearing anything too special that makes m...
