Adam A7 = The Business...

by Chris Randall

Got my Adams from Analogue Haven today. Run (don't walk) to the nearest computer and order yourself a set. These little guys are The Shit, in no uncertain terms. Well worth the money. There is no question in my mind any more that these are the best deal going for sub (barely) $1K powered monitors. Bass? Tons, round and full as fuck. Sub users: meet the real world. High end? Nice. Not crispy like I expected; quite smooth. There's a little three band tone control thingy on the back where you can add some sizzle if you need to.

They aren't really rough to listen to; I can't see ear fatigue being a real problem with these guys. You can really hear your 'verbs and compressors working, which is quite important in a mix. In short, I'm in LOVE with them, and I've only had them for four hours. I'm going to be doing some mixing next week, so we'll see how they hold up, but I imagine "admirably" is the word I'll be looking for. Seriously. Buy some. I'm not kidding.

Stuff and gear and stuff...

by Chris Randall

It was inquired as to what gear was being used for the guitar overdubbing sessions. "All kinds of shit" would be the easy answer, but pictures can express a thousand words, so here's a 2K explanation.

Okay, my guitar player Miguel is here for a week to do overdubs; I'll be more or less incommunicado for the duration, so don't expect a lot of posting here until, say, the 8th. A few here and there, but not my normal daily shit.
