a Lunchbox and 2 ma5. Every bit as great as everybody claims !
Sansamp Psa-1. Like I've read many many time... Killer box !

Great River ME-1NV. Bought it based on all the hype it gets around here and immediately realized it deserved the hype.

Tried them first of course, but was influenced by some Slutz to pick up the Apogee Duet and the EHX Holy Grail.

And practically an education in the small, but important, things that people talk about here. PRICELESS.

Pretty much everything I buy is researched here (as well as a few other resources).

Things I got via recommendations here:

API 3124+
Cranesong Spider
Pearlman TM-2
Charter Oak 538
API A2D
Lunchbox
Shadow Hills Mono GAMA
Purple Biz and Action


There are only a few things that got good press around here, but that I just plain didn't like.

Peluso P12: Sounded like poo on acoustic and just "meh" on most vocals. Sorry.

RNC and RNLA: Like someone earlier mentioned... I just figured I'd get them since they were so cheap and got such good reviews. Did not like them at all. Maybe a "good for 150 bucks compressor", but not a "good compressor".



Overall, though, I'd say the GS track record is pretty good.

+1

Except the Focals and the Chandlers!

And not because of GS - but according the feel I'm equipped that way right now.

my lot

As a 'home project studio' man, I can't even begin to express how much I rely on this one forum to guide me in upgrading my equipment - so I'll start by offering a profound thank you to all of you who have contributed to my enlightenment:

ADL600
Speck EQ
Aphex compressor
Reflection filter [Ethan Winer's job, of course]
REM converters

all of the above rate 10 out of 10 as far as I'm concerned

Also, thanks for convincing me NOT to buy.. (list too long to remember - but the most recent one was the Pro Tools 8 LE upgrade - Digidesign: how about fixing the stinking latency problem and never mind the crappy bells and whistles??)

Best 2 all

Yeah, I am really thankful for this forum and community. I've learned a TON of tecniques and confirmed other ones that I discovered on my own through just experimenting. Even though there's alot of bums here, there's alot of classy guys (and some gals) that really broke things down for me. I would still be buying things from Guitar Center and Sweetwater, getting raped by the newest sales fads.

Anyways, none of my purchases are based solely on GS opinions but GS has made me aware of the Purple Audio MC77 which will hit my door tomorrow. GS has also made me aware of Dave Pearlman and secured the TM-1 as my next purchase.

Me buying Waves SSL 4000 was definitely helped by the reviews I read here.

The CLASSIFIEDS has helped me find great deals on gear and also pass my used gear on to the next GS member.
