New Gear

Post by chippy » 22 Jan 2009, 11:52

So, I splurged a bit and now have some new studio gear on the way, namely:

Rode NT2-A large diaphragm condenser mic
Mackie Onyx Satellite firewire interface. Was going to be an M-Audio one but the unit I ordered was faulty so the shop offered me the Satellie for the same price. It has a few more inputs and better pre-amps than the one I was getting.
Cubase Studio 4.5 (WHEN FISH ORDERS IT DAMN YOU FISHY)
Pop shield
Leads
etc.

So. Should have an nice little home studio soon. Mostly going to be using this to record my own stuff, but I'll probably have to do a fair bit of messing about it to get my hand in so will end up doing a load of covers and things as well I expect. Anyways, once I know what I'm doing a bit if anyone wants to have a bit of a sesh messing about with some stuff I'd be well up for it, if you want to record a vocal demo or whatever really. I'm not going to be able to mic up a full drumkit or anything like but should be fairly flexible in what I can do, and drums can always be programmed.

Nope. Still waiting for Cubase, headphones, and longer leads so I can set the mic up inthe spare room, it picks up the fans off my computer too much if I put it in my room.

I dunno man. Is anything specific going on? People keep tellng me to come out but I've had a lot of drunk late nights recently, and every time I go out on a Friday I seem to end up being up til 5 or 6 the following morning. Tempted to catch a load of sleep and go out tomorrow instead.
