There's a place here in town that advertises they're using Radar 24 for "that big analog sound".

And I don't mind the pimp's as long as they say "I'm a pimp" when they walk in the room. Pimps gotta eat too.

I don't mind pimps, I just mind when their pimping is obnoxious. Ie. bashing one product while touting something that they do sell. It's stupid.

Wow. I'm truly impressed by all the spare time you have on your hands in order to put together this touching retrospective of what you deem to be stupid comments I have made and by all the attention you have showered upon me in the recent past here at GS. I am truly amazed! But now that your life's work has arrived at this marvellous pinnacle of achievement, you can walk towards your much deserved sunset years bathed in the knowledge that it doesn't get much better for someone in your position...........life is so cruel...I would have hoped that my first experience with a "cyber stalker" would have atleast been more interesting...oh well...peace...and please keep up the average work..you're doing so well.....so far....

Yes, an actual quote I read here. The funny thing is that the guy defended that quote to the end, and became the laughing stock of gearslutz for several weeks.

here's another real stupid one:

Hey Guys!

Hope you can help me with this one..

I've got a small, complete digital studio. The only mixer is a Mackie VLZ 1642 used as headphones submixer.

I thought about buying a "dummy" mixing desk with some VU meters, just to have something nice looking for the studio pictures or clients. What would you suggest to buy (I thought about an old studiomaster on ebay maybe) and how can I connect it, that only the VUs for example are connected to my stereo outs without degrading my monitor sound?

It should be as cheap as possible because the preamps are not gonna be used for recording.

Thanks!

Was there not a run of U87s that could be battery powered?

The poster of that thread had been told by a sales guy at Guitar Center that a U87 needed to be charged up with 48v phantom power for up to 4 hours before use.

Doesn't that also belong in the "Stupidest things heard at a Guitar Center" thread too?

JP22!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember that post. It was great how mad he got when someone questioned his philosophies. How I learned the meaning of flame out in internet terms. This guy would flame you out for pages of posts. He wouldnt give up! it was awesome, sad but awesome!
Yep, he is legend
So famous he had a Wikipedia page for a while, some guy over at the Cubase forum created it. It's been taken down now though :( I believe there was even a t-shirt made up. Might turn up on ebay some day.....
