But let me tell you this: this whole rock'n'roll thing started in the USA some 60 years ago, and we all know that it's almost everywhere now, not only in Oklahoma City. I neither call myself an expert nor Mr Rockabilly. But I started recording in 1989 and I was always interested in 50's/60's recording techniques. Until then I have recorded quite a few rock'n'roll, rockabilly, country, western swing and rhythm'n'blues acts, among others. I was born in the 70's, but I do know how the 50's sounded like, and I'm getting closer everyday.
Besides that, you're right with your other posts!
And by the way, I'm from Switzerland, not Germany.
No offense meant to you. George just kinda pissed me off a bit, especially after reading through a whole RAFT of people who obviously don't know anything older than their ProTools rig......

My current tape machines are both Swiss, although I'm probably getting an American mixdown deck soon, as I have a chance for a killer deal on an MCI and my A77 needs some work - and is only a semi-pro deck, 7.5 and 15 ips.

I tend to be a bit of a nut about old sounds, old tone, old technology, and old songs....... probably because I'm old too......

I do have 24 tracks of digital, but I hate it. Doesn't really sound right and the workflow drives me up a tree......
