    Playing a little with some of the Oberheim patches out there. (do a search under virtual Oberheim) Some are pretty cool. Lately though, I've been playing my MicroKorg. That thing still amazes me. It's a great little synth. I just got some settings off of Youtube for the Vangelis sound from Bladerunner. Very cool sound. Real fat, but has that cool shimmery sound. I'm still working on some Oberheim type sounds on it. Got the Arpegiator sound down pretty cool for stuff like I'll Wait. Synths are pretty fun to dick around with. Great thread to start. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    My DAW setup is as follows:
    -Apple MacBook (2.2 GHz, 120 GB HD, 2 GB RAM)
    -MOTU 8pre FireWire audio interface
    -Audiodesk software (it's what comes with all MOTU products; I'm going to upgrade to MOTU's Digital Performer 6 soon)
    -A Seagate 300 GB external hard drive (USB)
    -Peak LE 6 audio editing software
    -Fostex MR-8 Mk II which I use for simpler recording or to record things outside of my home studio.
    -Ableton Live 7 Suite (given to me for free in exchange for recording his band, which I haven't done yet; I haven't used this yet, either)


    On my front end I have:
    -ART MPA Gold two-channel mic pre (the stock 12AX7 tubes/valves have been replaced by some NOS JAN Phillips 5751's made in 1985)
    -Behringer Compressor/Limiter/Expander/Gate (works just fine, but it’s no UA LA-2A)
    -ZOOM Studio 1204 multi-effects processor


    I have the following mics:
    -MXL v93m large diaphragm condenser mic (a bright, detailed mic that really is a great mic)
    -Shure SM7b dynamic mic (EVERYONE should own this mic!)
    -Peavey PVM-22 dynamic mic
    -Shure SM57 dynamic mics (3 ea; you gotta have some of these in your home studio)
    -AudioTechnica drum mic set (model unknown; these are currently on long-term loan to me from an institution)
    -CAD KBM412 Mic (for low-end applications)
    -KEL Audio HM-1 (a matched pair; two thumbs WAY UP for these )
    -MXL 993 small diaphragm condenser mic (matched pair; I’m not chucking these into the sea…yet)

    I use a Tascam for recording and Guitar Pro for writing.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Logic studio is my fav. Native instrument plugins. Guitar rig, battery, also like to track down classic synth emulators.
