This is a good idea in my opinion.. better to start with one decent piece of gear and build on that! rather thatn buying lots of cheap stuff that you will soon have to upgrade..

In my opinion, the things worth spending money on are:

1) audio interface
2) monitors
3) mic (if you need one)

Howdy.. I saw that for sale in buy and sell :-)

I considered it myself. Are the modifications purely cosmetic? Does it sound as it should? You can get parts for them on ebay so you might be able to source some covering there.

I just recently got my hands on an Echopet EV100 from ebay. Its a nice unit with an authentic dub echo sound. Knobs are as crackly as a hell. At present, I prefer it to my Boss RE-20 (COSM pedal version of the RE-201) which i paid a lot more for. This may be because i need to get used to using the r...

Using VST plugins as insert effects on a hardware mixer.. ?

Anyone ever had a go at this? Essentially, I am curious if anyone has tried to mix using a hardware mixer and then using the aux sends, send a signal to an audio interface, apply an effect (e.g. reverb/delay) to the signal and then send it back out to the return on the desk. I would imagine, even wi...

As Neil said.. You need an audio interface with Multiple ins/outs e.g. Edirol FA-101, Motu 828, RME Fireface You need a mixing desk with direct outs on each channel.. e.g. Spirit Sx20, Mackie have a few decent desks with direct outs.. there are plenty of decent desks available second hand at a reaso...

Smoking Ganja and Dub - Necessity or negative association?

I am interested to know what people think about the relationship between herb and dub. It is an association that sometimes bothers me. As we know, some of the best Dub was produced in studios where smoking was banned (i.e. Tubbys) so is it purely an individual decision? Do people feel it can help wi...

interesting approach .. not blasphemy at all .. dub is about individual aproach i am unsure what you mean by 53% swing etc... if you are referring to timing, then it is of course all relative to song tempo dont get too caught up in numbers though.. the whole is always greater than the sum of the parts
