  1. Happy Birthday!

  2. I simply love the Native Instruments B4 Organ. Sounds pretty darn convincing...

    I don't have any stomp boxes, but I have the V-Amp Pro. Although it hasn't given me any problems, I hardly turn it on anymore. I like the Line6 tones and interface a bit better - I have the TonePort and PodXT. Behringer, from what I understand, has improved in quality (own a dedicated factory in China now) over the last year or so, but unfortunately that's going to be a bit of an uphill battle for them to shake the bad quality back in the late nineties and early 2000's... D
  4. I'd love to get a new machine, but don't have the cash right now. If I was, I'd go for a "vista ready" machine, but load XP on it for the first few months. I wouldn't upgrade to Vista until the end of the summer or so - that should be enough time for 1. Microsoft to get a few point releases out and 2. get the software manufacturers caught up enough to have a somewhat stable system under Vista. Yeah, if money were no object, Mac would be the choice, but I have too much invested on the PC side and I've not had any issues with being on a PC that would cause me to move from the "dark side".
  5. Thanks for the suggestion - I left a note up there! I can't complain about it - I've had it for about 6 years without any problems. It's a pretty versatile board - 16 channels - 10 with XLR / preamps. I hear the new Onyx boards (that replaced this line) are quite nice. I've used the pre-amps a few times to record vox and accoustic guitar before I got a dedicated unit to go directly into the soundcard - fairly clean. I don't use the EQ on the board, so can't really rate that objectively. But all in all, it's a nice little board and quite versatile for my needs. Like I said, I just use it for monitoring my hardware synths and signal routing. I have everything hitting a patchbay before the board so, I record directly to the audio card rather than route through busses. Mixing, I do "in the box" and run through a stereo channel on the board. Joe, so good to see you taking such an active and objective moderating roll on the board - very nice! D
  6. Hi all, Just wanted to put up my first post on this board. I've been participating in composing and recording engineering boards for the past year or so and thought I'd Google songwriting forums - came across this one and it looked pretty active. About me, I primarily score music for film / TV / media, but when I do have time for myself, I enjoy songwriting. I cover a very wide range of styles and genres ( have to for the film business ) and can play / fake a number of different instruments. Lyric-writing is not my strong suit, so if there's any songwriters out there who are weak on the "other" side, let's chat. See you all on the boards! D
  7. I have a Mackie 1642 VLZPro, but I mainly use it as a monitoring tool rather than a mixing desk. I do all my mixing "in the box"
