Mic + preamp question

I have no clue about preamps and ohm-stuff, so bare with me on this one. I want to learn, so if anyone knows a good crash course in the basics of mics and preamps, please enlighten me. I hooked an AKG 190 ES to an old Yamaha EM-300 we've got in our rehearsal hall. I got a very clean and strong signa...

Re: BIT Live 20xx

I'd say the last venue at London BIT was just like this! However, when the acts were on, people did pay attention (or were given an opportunity to properly enjoy the act - i.e. dance). Well, I did have to tell the audience to shut up a couple of times when presenting the acts. It really felt like n...

Re: Bug Reports Here.

I was just about to report this problem, and it doesn't affect special characters. It seems completely random.

Makke turned into Makk� for example, and last time I checked e wasn't that special a character. ;)

Re: Monkey Island 5 and 6

A review for a few chuckles: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/901-Tales-of-Monkey-Island The reviewer does make good points, and I agree with pretty much all of it. I still find Tales of Monkey Island enjoyable, but not as absorbing as Monkey Island 2 (or a lot of other ...

Depeche Mode - Sidstation

I was watching a documentary about the making of Depeche Mode's latest album, Sounds of the Universe, and saw something interesting when they were looking through Martin's gear.

Time for a game of Spot the C64 Reference. :)

Re: BIT Live 20xx

The plan is also to have Ben Daglish hosting it, helped by Makke and with special guests such as Anna Black presenting awards, and to have the best acts from the years come and reprise a kind of "greatest hits" of their work: so lots of variety, and not much work all round for the acts, if they're ...

SLAY Radio Gathering - who's going?

Maybe there's a list of people some other place - I've not been keeping myself up to date for a while now - that makes this thread redundant. But, simply put, SLAY Radio Gathering. It's this weekend. Who's going? Sara and I will arrive on the Firday. Heading off right after work, and then it's a thr...

That. Is. Awesome!

You have got to get that running, and use it for C64 remixing! ;)

Re: Most stupid comment(s) you've had for a remix?

I've had a few strange comments on remixes over the years, but the most stupid one was one posted on Nectarine, which only could be interpreted as the listener blaming me for girls/women not liking computer/game music. It was probably just a case of bad choise of words. My Arkanoid remix has got som...

Re: Monkey Island 5 and 6

Ok, I finished it in roughly five hours. So the episodes are feeling a bit short imo, but there are some good puzzles. Another important question: does it actually make you LOL? A lot? Yes, there are a few LOL-moments, mainly from dialog and a few of Guybrush's comments. But frankly, so far I feel t...

Re: Monkey Island 5 and 6

So, anyone played it yet? Perhaps even finished it? I just bought and downloaded it, and have been playing for a couple of hours. I really wish they'd gone for 2D instead of 3D (or at least 3D graphics with a 2D feel, or the other way around). While the general feel of the graphics are right on the ...

Re: Regarding the matter of (name removed)

First of all, it's weird how you keep claiming that everyone is out to get you, and that everyone is making up false proof of you misbegaving. Do you really think everyone here would WANT to spend so many hours making up allegations against you for no reason? It's also strange how you seem to have a...
