Re: Your Rig---but 20 Years Ago

Back in '92 I had a post natal depressed wife and a screaming offspring, luckily I decided to keep them and they have increased in value.

I also had an Atari St and one of those red yamaha keytars, a couple of guitars and at my Mums house a casio SK1.

Quality find on the Ware video, the 80's were an incredible musical journey, glad I was old enough to appreciate them.

Re: i know you hate behringer...

I used to have a behringer mixer, never any problems with that, and when I needed a cheap DI box I got one of the V-TONE GUITAR GDI21 boxes

Re: An1x V Maudio Venom

Thanks for all the replys so far. In response to skizzle, I also have a cs1x and Im pretty sure its not a VA so comparing the two confuses me. I also looked at the gaia but unless Im wrong it only has 1 osc whereas the venom appears to have 3, is that a fair statement? I do have the an1xedit softwar...

Re: Rack mounting tips/suggestions

I'd say that since the "average turnaround time for Nice-Racks handmade studio racks is typically 3-7 business days" I'd buy to suit what I had.

Re: AN1x parts?

How disappointing :(
