I've been diggin'...
Mose Allison. I saw him a couple times during his residency at Fat Tuesday's in NYC. It took a little while for his voice to grow on me, but now I can't get enough of that shit. "If You're Goin' To The City" has got to be one of the all-time great jump blues tracks.
Gibson Special Alloy Humbucker Guitar Strings. These strings don't suck. They actually sound pretty damned good. They don't break. I've been endorsed by Ernie Ball for years (yeah, if you look on the back of the green package, you'll see my name somewhere in that list) but I've given up on them. Their quality has gone way downhill, and now that I'm not touring any more, I don't need to buy 700 packs of strings a year, and I can spend a little more. I'm sure there's better strings than the Gibsons out there, but I tried 'em on a whim, and find them servicable.
Nuendo. Nothing changes. I have to have pretty much every Windows and OSX DAW installed, and no matter how much I deal with the others, I still love Nuendo. I don't know how those people that say one DAW sounds better than another come to that conclusion, but as far as workflow goes, Nuendo wins hands down, for me anyways.
Preset #257 on the Eventide Eclipse. Named "EMT Plate," it bears little resemblance to its namesake, but is an excellent thick reverb. It is currently my main reverb, but is soon to be replaced in that regard. (Ho, ho, ho...)
Plogue Bidule. The more I play with this bad boy, the more I like it. As far as bricks-n-wires environments go, it'll get the job done, and doesn't suck as much as most of the others.
That's it for now. I think the world needs more stream-of-consciousness blogging, and I've just done my part.
