Virtual mixing

If that’s not a feature, it ought to be.

Well, the thing is, you will need pretty good cans. If a pair of headphones is crappy under 100Hz, no amount of processing will magically make the headphones able to physically change and produce frequencies under 100Hz. See where I am going here? I am not saying it is worthless, I would just be very surprised if it works as well as they want you to think it does. And maybe I missed this, but how do they know the specs of the headphones? Is there a "K240" versus "MDR-7506" preset sort of deal? As the K240s are pretty balanced and the MDRs are bass heavy for instance. You have to know the playback system to be able to adjust properly.

I'm widjuh, Bubba, that's why I threw in the the bog-standard BD DT100's as a starting point.

Hi Bill Clarke:

Seems like Erikson Audio (Jam Industries)21000 TransCanada Highway
Baie D’Urfé Quebec Canada H9X 4B7






001-514-457-2555





could be a Canadian Distributor for this Stuff…



They have a Saffire Pro 24 Audio Interface that looks fascinating…
I wonder what that ToY would set you back ????
It’s on the link that spreadercraig originally posted…

I've gone momentarily cold on it;-)

I’ve gone momentarily cashless! :laugh:

I’m deffo having one. It will add another dimension to my set up. I know my cans and speakers reasonably well now, but on my last recording dipped on the bass. I would have caught that had I ran it through different speaker set ups. Also…I can’t afford any really good monitors.

Having said that I need a pre amp / compressor first I think… And I’m currently in Tenerife so can’t order owt !

Bill the audio interface can be bought as a package with this…maybe cheaper than seperate. Internet connection is hit and miss here so can’t delve further until the weekend when I’m back.

Craig! Dude! Your mixes are always superb. And. I can't wait to hear your review. I'll hit the "pay now" button on your thumbs-up;-)

What are you looking at for a preamp/compressor?

Dunno yet Tom til I get home and have a good search.
Any ideas?

Budget?

One of these on eBay for
£90 ($148)... Is that good?

Yes, I think so, they’re 250 USA dollars new here in the USA. Keep in mind that it is an optical compressor, for what it’s worth. Review here:

Thanks Tom. Sounds good to me. :agree:
