Christmas coming up

God every year around this time I go through the same agony and pain ..... what should I ask Santa for Christmas.

I have to be reasonable this year ... I just finished re-organising my appartment together with my GF who's moving in with me in January. Even bought her a nice 500$ Fiat Punto. I over budgetted the appartment update (thanks to IKEA heh ) so I think I should reward my efforts in saving money by giving myself a little something for X-mas.


Help me get myself a nice 1,000 $ present.

I'm getting myself some Sytek's for christmas, but that may not fit your bill.

Do you have a tape echo, like a re-201? That's a great peice for under $1000. Sometimes I feel like they are actually instruments as well as effects. With the regeneration and motor speed control, you can really "play" it like an instrument.

Ditto above post! They're fun and a great way for the engineer to actually play something on the record without stepping on the band's toes.

I'd pick up a Royer R 121 if you don't have one already.

Then again, ribs might not be your thang.

Hey Chris

How about a non-gear treat?!!!

Something nice just for you personally-object or experience- an untypical indulgence/experiment maybe?

Or something in-between, a luxury for your studio, a picture or piece to inspire you and bring you joy.....

Now that's a novel thought!

Aren't we all a little too attached to our cold, metal boxes?

Maybe a vacation would do Chris's soul some justice.

It cost Β£5 second hand, and you will have to prize it out of my dead, cold and burnt fingers to get it!

THAT'S GIVEN ME AN IDEA!

If it wasn`t for I bought them myself, I would recommend the two Hardy IM-200 micpre/eq modules I have on my way from Mercenary!

I just got 2 of the active 122's!. One of the greatest purchases I'll make in my career. The backside on vocals? Riddddddddiculious. The front end into an MP-2 A designs on horns is the greatest horn chain I have EVER used. The frequency repsonse of these puppies elimates the need for an eq unless you want your destenation sound to sound different than the source. Instead of eq, you use mic placement. These mic's will make your life easier. Set them up on an amp , if the producer says "It sounds too harsh", then you gotta tweak the amp, not your chain. Can't say enough about them. They make recording more fun to me.
