According to Fletcher (Mercenary guy) the only thing differnent with the Mercenary Edition is the color change, unlike other Mercenary gear which is designed to their specs.

Speaking of Mercenary Editions the Drawmer 1968 Tube Compressor is aaammmaaazzzziing for running whole mixes through.

Mike, click on the older posts link on the bottom of his pages and you will find 15 Hypnos releases...maybe more, but I was so pissed off I stopped counting, and yes one of them was one of mine...I realize it is 5 years old but I am still ticked!

I am not usually that impulsive, but this album was too hard to pass up.

Wow thanks for the heads up on this!

Pattern gatting is cool, the Moogerfooger Murf is really cool for that too...except that with no tap or precise tempo it is totaly organic and a pain to sync...

I probably spend more time making music as a percussionist than anything else, my current set up consists of a selection of Remo drums (Tubanos, Djembe, Dumbek & Klong Ya) as well as tablas, box drums, tamborra, and anything else I can rattles, shake or hit.

On the electronic side, I too use a Roland HPD-15 and a Korg Wavedrum.

For sequenced beats I use Reaktor, Stylus and BFD, but as my set-up moves more and more outside of the computer I am looking for a good drum machine/groove box. I would love a machine drum, but they are $$$ and the new Linn Drum 2 looks promising, but seeing the prototype at NAMM, the thing is freakin huge...last choice, but most probale would be an electribe like everyone else.

OOOOHHH a tea thread!!!

I love tea!

Currently my wife and I are much closer to the indian / british way af making and drinking tea. In other words, it must be black, opaque and you must put sugar and cream in it...damn now I have to go make a cup  ::)

The best tea I have ever had however was in Hong Kong, brewed in an old tea shop by a gentleman who appeared to be in his 90's...it was quite the ritual, but more smooth and pure than I have ever been able to achieve here at home.

Also I love african Rooboos tea, again best drank latte style with milk and sugar, and the tea leafs should be boiled in the water for 6 minutes to be at optimum strength and flavor I was taught.

Indians, and Bengali people also boil the leaves right in the water, with the milk and sugar all at once.

Hey Mike, my wife and I are huge Thin Man fans, there is just something in old films that still surpasses many modern films of today.

Speaking of old films, Philadelphia Story is still one of my all time favorites!

As for now watching I am on Season 11 of Frasier and when that series is done, I will probably go back and start MASH all over from the beginning.

The hopeful news Lloren is that this was a merger VS a buyout / takeover. TC still retains their autonomy. Maybe this means we will finally see the resurrection of Oberheim in a Powercore softsynth version.

In that price range I would look at the Presonus or better yet the TC Konect.

Hey JKN, what features are you looking for?

  • Number of ins and outs?
  • Firewire / USB ?
  • Control surface / mixer?

I have reviewed a few and may be able to offer a few suggestions.

One of my favorites off the top of my head is the Mackie Onyx, 8 channel I/O (4 of which are the awesome sounding Onyx Mic Pre) Its Firewire.

You can also buy any configuration of Mackie Onyx Mixer and add the Firewire card.

I think Seren really hit on something for me and thats the interrest in other and ancient cultures.

I have no native american artifacts in my studio, but I do have african & east indian masks as well as a large collection of african, arabic, indonesian and indian drums.

Decor wise I am still working on having a studio that is very Frank lloyd Wright.

My synths are sub-mixed through a Mackie VLZ3 mixer, they are linked MIDI-wise with a Roland/Edirol UM-880 patchbay which can be switched at the touch of a button to my studio DAW or my laptop.

I also have (3) 48 point patchbays, 2 are balanced and one is unbalanced which can route any mic pre, compressor, eq or effects unit to any daw input/output at anytime.

When I get really anal about sound quality I will disconect my synths from the mackie and go direct in through a pre and such.
