Hi! i'm agree with last post, i strongly recommend you an emulator (bass pod, behringer or similar...), they are very close to original sound although the're not hardware and analog gear (i love tweaking knobs, transistors, resistors and tubes, not DSP chips etc....). Even better: if your soundcard ...

thanks for the world cup, i'm not a football/soccer fan, had to work the night Spain won, i'm radio engineer and that situation was hell! referring on your workflow don't follow my advice, is good to limit yourself or limit tools used.

i know all of us have our own method to write/play/produce/compose but Reason is a closed-system, open systems like Cubase, Logic, Nuendo etc allows yo to import samples and loops easier

Of course it's just my two cents

Greetings from Spain!

so you use Reason, i suppose there's a built-in sampler where you load loops you edit on Recycle. If your loop starts at 3th time i would suggest to delete silence before skank, in sequencer you'll in draw the note in 3th time that triggers this guitar loop. Sorry if my explanation was a bit messy, ...

for Logic / Mac: built-in Tape Delay effect is quite impressive

for both PC and Mac: try TAL Dub delay

hi rasta yah! if you are on electronics can repair / mod a fostex 820, i personally prefer Fostex but it's up to you. Don't worry about unbalanced outputs, how far will your mixer be placed from your computer's audio interface? You're right, Behringer's pre's are famous for poor definition and clari...

100% agree with rufus13!!! power supply is totally reliable but be sure big electrolytic caps don't go out of range, those caps get dry over the years. Clean pots, faders and switches and replace everything you see it can be problematic in the future i'm fixing those little issues to mine and belove...

Hi again! I know Midas is out of budget for most of people and is well known as PA mixer but any mixer can do the work with dub, pop, rock...any kind of music. For 1000€ you can get an old analog mixer and repair it. http://cgi.ebay.com/SOUNDCRAFT-SERIES-200B-ANALOG-MIXER-Awesome-Shape_W0QQitemZ2205...

Hi mpampouras! First of all: flat sound = midas consoles (in my opinion during years concerts and shows). I have used new Allen&Heath and Soundcraft and sounds good but quality construction is not their strength point, weak pots and faders. Flat is nice but colored mixing desks are good too, ie: old...

mixer doesn't make a great reggae album...but it might be inspiring having lots of pots and faders to tweak :) how many tracks does it have? and how many tracks does your project need? and how about Aux sends? do you need at least 3 or 4 (phaser, delay, reverb, flanger) think about it before buying ...

Hi ocoughi!

i would solder it AFTER-FADER but keep in mind that all your AUX SENDS will keep sending signal while channel is MUTED

maybe 2 switches, first one for muting channel and second one for muting aux sends

hope it helps!

hi richmo!

i've never heard about this brand, it seems a low budget mixer, but plenty of connections:

mic in, line in, insert and direct out,

8 busses

L, R and C master outputs

and maybe 4 to 6 aux sends

can you try it?

what's the price?
