Yeah I had zero communication and almost no tracking information from them for about a month. But my stuff arrived in good shape so all things considered it was worth the wait.

Mini Vent is for Vocals and Sampled Guitar, and the CaM Rotory effect is very good, so need need for the Vent II.

I always missed that JBL Horn Driver tone, digital Tube Distortion was never enough. They somehow have right amount of distortion and the tone is really close to the recollections of my 147’s.
The Tube and pre amp routings are truly effective.
I’m very pleased but the MIDI Editor is deep as the Grand Canyon, but the options are numerous, far more advanced than I expected.

Carsten and his crew are top shelf guys. Even before Covid-19 they offered to send me one, then send my old HX-3 back so I had no down time.
Now I’ve got a 90 day window.
Unfortunately I bought a WaveState and an AkaI MPC Live to also master by then.

I need therapy.

What did it cost to upgrade your old HX3? I might want to upgrade mine if it’s not too expensive.

If you find a good therapist for this affliction let me know — I’ve got issues cry

I bought ten 20ft and ten 25ft mic cables for my driveway jams, and a 15 ft cable snake. And then got it all free for amazon points. Makes the driveway jams easier to 'quarantiine'. Nobody touches anybody else's gear, and when everyone arrives at my place the cables are already run so they just plug their mics and direct boxes in to my cables. More work for me in terms of wiping down at the end, but i'd rather have folks touching one cable, than 8 hands on my mixer or computer. grin

Cost with return of the old HX-3 was 380 USD.
I think it was a great deal and there’s a better quality of build, sound, control, a very worthy upgrade.
Another 90 bucks for the extended license, haven’t had time to dig into yet, bought it basically because I like supporting those who make me sound good.

Elmer it isn’t a laptop, just my QWERTY on top of the rack.
The top rack is the TC VoiceRack with the TC Microphone option.
I get extra gigs and pay for making vocalists sound polished live.
Been using automated vocal fx since the hardware sequencer days.
Worth the extra effort.

I'll add two...

The Syntronik 99 library, which I posted about separately, and I upgraded my Steven Slate drum plugin to v5.5.

Both are well worth it.

Okay, enough guitars. I got a keyboard. grin

I wanted something to play outside, so I got a Casio SX-P1000. I'm actually pretty pleasantly surprised by the sound and feel of this bad boy....and it works with six AA batteries...and you can connect via Blue Tooth and play back tunes through it...

A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

Our big band has gone virtual and I'm doing the audio mixing. I took advantage of Wave's sale and bought a bunch of of their plugins for Cubase (I use Elements).

Paid for (40% off):
- The Power Pack Bundle (C1 Compressor, DeEsser, Doubler, IR Convolution Reverb, L1 Ultramaximizer, Q10 EQ, Renaissance Axx, S1 Stereo Imager, SuperTap delay and TrueVerb)
- Audio Track to use as a channel strip
- Vitamin Enhancer

Got for free:
- VU Meter
- PAZ Spectrum Analyzer

I also picked up the free Tokyo Dawn Nova dynamic EQ. I've been looking for a cheap/free multi-band compressor and this suits quite nicely.

Signed up for a virtual Steinberg WaveLab training session so I can better understand how to use it. Starts on June 4.

My wife bought a 1-year subscription to the Master Class series, mostly for the cooking stuff. I'm going to take advantage of it to view the Herbie Hancock and Hans Zimmer sessions.

I'm awake, I swear. coffee

Apparently my brain was forever scarred by working for Kurzweil when they had the PX1000, SX1000, etc...and now I can't keep this model number straight. facepalm

In other news, because I appear to be on a bit of a buying spree (combined with the fact that I really liked Dr. Metlay's review), there is now a Hydrasynth heading to my house.

I'll never buy another Snark, I did find a factory refurb Boss TU-10 on ebay for $15 so now I have two. Both work great but one is none and two is one.
If you are careful, hopefully the Snark will last you for a while.

Edited to add - the Boss tuner changes the display lighting automatically. It is easy to see in a dark room, a moderately lit room and in bright sunlight. That is pretty awesome. Cheers, Kuru

And, I just bought Izotope RX-7 Standard. They had an upgrade sale so I got it for $99, usually $349. It's good stuff, glad I have it.

well, it was 12 or 13 bucks. I've played sax for ... more years than I care to mention ... and never had a tuner to check intonation. First time I tried it, I discovered that my ear is pretty good – most notes are right on pitch. And I can bend notes up and down to see them go sharp and flat in the tuner. Cool. I know I have a tendency to play sharp in the upper register so this will help me get back on track and I can pull the mouthpiece out a little to get better control of intonation. Worth the very small investment.
