New Toy!!!

by Chris Randall
 



My Big Studio Miniaturization Process is well underway now. I sold 90% of my shit, and new (and much better) stuff has begun arriving. Witness what the FedEx man brought this morning. Got myself a Rosetta 200. How 'bout that?


I expected a subtle improvement in sound, but I was unprepared for the drastic difference between the MOTU 896's stock convertors and what is in here. It's like deep gloomy downtown Detroit night versus bright sunny Pacific Northwest summer day. I'm serious. Which is not to knock the MOTU 896 too hard. For the money, it is a fine unit. But it simply isn't in the same class as this bad boy. As soon as I get a 1394 card for the Rosetta, some lucky AI reader is going to be able to pick up an 896 for a quite reasonable amount of money.

A friend of mine is currently interning at Black Lion and is reporting good results with their various device modificatons. I think he's about to have his personal 828mkII modified.

I used to record on a digi002 before my move to Logic. But getting a BIGBEN is truly amazing in sound. Some might not hear it on solo tracks but when mixing.
Since i've been using the apogee gear i haven't been using that much eq and the mixes sound much better and are so much easier to mix.

What preamps do you use Chris to go into your Rosetta ?
