Nice one

Did it come with the DSB-1 sampler board?

Thank you, Flat! Unfortunately no sampling board on this one, just the drum machine (came with four factory cards, though - plenty of sounds )

Waves Codex. Like it a lot, the built-in highpass and low-pass filters are super helpful.

Sorry about that but they're still in the box
I have to reorganize my whole studio so when that's finished I'll put an updated picture in the Gear Porn thread - pics of your slutty setups thread.

today I bought the Behringer Pro 1

I can't believe I will have access to the Pro 1 sound.

- A second Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56, connected to my first in dual mode now.

- An Alto compressor

- Two Notes Torpedo Studio, fancy pants loads box/power amp/mic/room modeler thing to give my valve amps some love since they get far less attention since I got a Kemper.. and will be interesting to amp some synths through also



- A couple phasers



- This contraption, which I've not even plugged in before taking it apart for surgery, since it's pretty useless in from-factory state


- Sexy Empress reverb, been thinking about one of these for a couple years..


- Some Amiga MIDI ports


- ACIIIIIIIDDDD


Also picked up 3x 8TB hard drives (Toshiba N300), upgraded Arturia V collection from 5 to 7, got Izotope Ozone 9 advanced + Neutron 3 advanced.. and WON gforce software's virtual string machine in the Sonic State xmas quiz special last wednesday

For some reason I read that as 'Nose Candy'.

Mainly Octamed in the past, since I've not had any MIDI ports on the Amiga side, so have used the Atari ST a lot more. Interested to try bars and pipes and aegis sonix (although I'm not sure that'll work with MIDI in anyway)

Weird how many people have used Octamed. Never used it for MIDI but I remember the sound quality going to extra low once you switched to eight tracks.

After long hesitation i finally moved away from laptop and NI Maschine on stage.

Interesting that something that looked like the future 10 years ago now looks clunky.
And something that 10 years ago appeared outdated, makes a comeback.

Anyhow here is my shiny new workstation...

The quality of these modelers now is just unreal. I've got a pair of Eleven Racks which is considered to be one of the inferior modelers, but it still sees so much more use than my actual amps just because it gives me the same sound as the amps without the hassle of miking and cranking the volume. Truly an interesting time to be alive and recording guitars!

Awesome haul and fantastic that you won the Xmas quiz. I can never listen in real time so couldn't participate. I'd also like to hear your thoughts on the Behringer phaser. I need a cheap phaser pedal.

That would be very hard to resist. I probably shouldn't check my e-mails.

On the VP1.. there's really quite a significant volume drop when engaged on a line level signal it seems, this might be normal with the small stone too though? It's supposed to be a clone of that.. and there's a few search results mentioning it. I'm thinking I might have to try sending the signal through a reamp box and then back out with a DI at the end of the chain.. which is a bit of a pain.

I've attached an audio file so you can see what I mean (plugged into VC340).. beware - the volume jumps at around 20 seconds.. that's turning the pedals off.

Edit: fixed, see a few posts below

Pity about the volume as it sounds pretty good. Thanks for posting the clip.

Funny.. I just tried putting the Empress after them both and now.. there's hardly any volume drop when they're turned on. I had them both on the end of the chain (plugged right into Tascam DR-40) before. So yeah, sounding much nicer now Who knows why! Maybe some impedance thing when they're plugged directly into a little recorder like that

Glad to hear it. Funny how some things seem almost unexplainable when you have wires running about.

The phaser is pretty good for the price. It's bigger than a usual Boss stomp box. It's about 5 inches long by 3 and half

I shouldn't have, but it was B Stock and then it was another 15% off in the Reverb sale and it only took a day to get to me from Jersey. My first thoughts are it feels cheap, but it sure sounds good and I think it will feel a hole in my setup. I had originally debated between this and the Microfreak and bought the Freak when it came out. They seem to complement each other though. Anyway, Modal Skulpt is now in the lab.

The krks are great for the money I still have some as my secondary monitors but if u can get some acoustic isolation panels under them you'll notice the difference to your mixing.

Picked up a black Keystep at GC. Avoided buying anything else (saw a Microfreak there but resisted).

Got it playing my Sirin for now but it will eventually be used for a Neutron (if I ever get it).

A couple cool things I can do with it: 1) CV mod out for aftertouch to Sirin filter CV in, I can use AT on Sirin this way, and 2) the ability to play the keys while the sequencer runs makes for some neat Baba O'Riley-ish arpeggio effects with the gate time at 50%, playing a monosynth.
