Note that if you want an audio demonstration of Audio Damage products, there's no better way than to pick this album up. Other than the Eclipse and the usual Waves limiting products, every effect on this album came out of our shop.
Those of you that are quick like little bunnies might have noted that there was an MKS-80 for sale on Analogue Haven's used page for a minute today. I say "was" because I bought that bitch. I've been wanting one of these for nigh on 20 years, and I finally knuckled down and got one. Now I need to scare up an MPG-80, I guess. I can live without it, of course, but it'd be nice to have. (Oh, it's a Rev 5, for those of you curious about such things.)
As you can clearly see, my Analog Effect is 6/7ths done. There's just an MF-104Z-shaped hole in the upper right, and I'll get that bad boy as soon as I have some fiscal ducks to put in a row. I got the second panel from Analogue Haven today.
As you can see, I wired the Effect with a George L's pedalboard wiring kit from Pedal Geeks. This is a $60 kit and comes with 10 really nice brass jacks, 10' of excellent coax, and 10 little rubber thingies that go over the end of the jacks. It may sound kind of expensive, but when you consider that I needed five cables of differrent lengths, and any cable worth a shit costs at least $13 (I normally use Monster patch cables) then it was actually right in line with normal pricing, with the added benefit that everything is the right length, so there's no extra loops of cable.
If you have to wire up several things that aren't going to change with 1/4" TS cable, I strongly recommend it.
Anywho, as soon as I get the delay, this bad boy will be done. A single suitcase containing everything I need to completely ruin a Rhodes' tone. I'm not too hip to that Dyna-Comp; I'm going to make a modded Orange Squeezer to go in its place eventually.
