Essential Gear !

Is your Studio being Booked?

I have found lot´s of people talking about :

MUST HAVE GEAR TO BE BOOKED IN MY REGION!

Just wanted to give a try with a thread about this!

In my city, Barranquilla, located at the northern coast of Colombia, u need this to be booked!

One Neumann U87 :

With or without the spider shockmount!
This must have mike is THE NEUMANN!
It seems for them that Neumann only sales THIS mic!
heh

One Shure SM-81

For SHAKERS and TSE TSE sounds!

Two Sennheiser MD-421

This pairs of BIRDS, as they called them (CRANESONG MADE?) are for Congas, Toms, and Percussion!

The last but not less important!

PROTOOLS

IF U DON´T HAVE PT YOU ARE NOT GONNA BE BOOKED!

WHY?

BECAUSE PT "SOUNDS" GREAT!

NOT YOUR API´S, NOT YOUR ROOM!

PROTOOLS

Here in the US, many people shop studios by looking at the gear lists too. Here too, they ask for "Pro Tools" and "Neumann"

the big difference is that in America, not many people care about TSE TSE sounds!

I work from home and do not solely rely on recording itself for a living, but I do get asked all the time if I have Pro Tools. If you take the time to explain what PT is compared to what you have (Nuendo 2 here) and dispell the "gotta have ProTools" mindset it should be less of a deal breaker.

I have nothing against PT or its users, I just find that PT does remarkably well marketing their product to the world. The free and limited versions that come with their low end stuff get folks hooked at the beginning of their recording 'career' as well which is simply great, great marketing.

Hey War,

I agree that PT has great marketing, but, at the same time, I believe it´s a really friendly software.

I just installed the 6.9.2 LE for a new project on a friend´s project studio and it has new MIDI features that I´m sure will SOMEDAY be a blast as NUENDO!

when people ask if i use protools i say yes, but then mention that i prefer a different program that few people know about. this is essentially true, and saves me from having to work on pt which i personally do not prefer.
