Sometimes you have to make some clear goals in your life! Mine is this:
Don't pay too much attention to the MOTU pieces, I have them right now (the 8pre is my main interface, I don't use the old timepiece but it has funky blinking leds), and only plan to use the 8pre for ADAT extension with the Ensemble if I have it. I'm planning to buy a lot secondhand because I'm a college student and don't have that much money. I'm still planning to use Logic for mixing because I like it and I have an MC Mix which I love. I have a nice mic collection and a good room.
As you can see, the only thing missing is a good EQ! What would you guys recommend? It has to be relatively affordable...
I greatly prefer the rack unit to the 500 unit on the Arsenal... don't know why [on a technical level] as they say it's the same stuff inside... but it sounded much deeper and clearer to me than the 500 series unit.
This is where I want to be in a year from now ????
Studio bank loan : ZERO !!!
I know ur an api person aswel but whats ur opinion on Api vs Arsenal audio?i know its a parent company but in my opinion the arsenal although kinda like api really has a different sound not better or worse just a slighty different vibe which i like as much as the api vibe
