AKG d224e
AKG d224e

Studio-quality dynamic mic, the top-of-the-line model in the AKG's now discontinued 2-way, dual-element series, with smooth, flat response, that sounds great on many sources, and is right up there with the best dynamic mics ever made, but at a bargain price.

TASCAM US 16x08
TASCAM US 16x08

The Tascam US 16x08 gets you a lot of channels and a lot of sound quality for a very attractive price. The routing possibilities are limited, so do check this before buying. As soon as the WDM and mixer panel issues are fixed, and a reverb is added, I'ld rate it all 5's.

First Violins, which is one of five parts of Aria Sounds’ London Symphonic Strings, is an excellent sounding orchestral instrument with several fine patches — I especially like intensity of the pizzicato and the lifelike smoothness of the legato.

EQ BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i

The BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i uses an interesting adaptive EQ and adjusts phase relationship of various frequencies. What it lacks in controllable functionality, it makes up for in pure and undefinable sweetness. Best used in live situations due to unbalanced jacks.
