    Masters of There Day

    Not sure where to put this so mod feel free to move it. Got an e-mail from Benchmark that was way cool. Not trying to push Benchmark, but they have 3 videos out of 3 different groups in the studio. 10 minute HD productions showing tracking and final product from their recording session. Great...

    Cheap Amps You Wish You Had Never Sold...

    In the mid 70's, I had a Sears amp my dad had bought me. We started a "band" and were playng in the garage, I was about 10. Dad decided that I needed a better amp if I was in a band, so he came home with an Ampeg Portaflex for me. It was really a bass amp, but I used a Big Muff pedal (the...

    Eleven Rack vs M-Audio and Presonus NEWB

    Sure, I'll post some sounds tomorrow evening. I was the same way, got rid of all the big amps and stuff. I'm not gigging and it just didn't make sense having that stuff around. I was going to get a small practice amp, but started this whole home studio thing. The VG-99 fit perfectly. It sits...

    DAW USERS What's your favorite most useful plugins?

    I use Sonar and they have the Vintage channel VC-64. Took me a while to warm up to it, but now I love this thing especially on my vocals. Also acoustic guitar. Here is how Cakewalk describes it: "The VC-64 Vintage Channel is a channel strip, dynamics processor, EQ, and De-Esser that's been...

    Anybody use Whotune?

    Not sure where to put this thread. I read about this site in Recording Magazine. I browsed through it and it seems interesting. I'm currently using Soundclick, but I was curious if others use it and their feedback. I searched the forums, but nothing came back. The url is:
