  • Here it is, yet another 15% off weekend by Musicians Friend

    If I don't find a better deal I'm going to buy my interface with this discount. Anyone planning on getting anything this weekend? Are there any better deals going on?

      The interface I want seems to be valid with the promo... but I can't seem to find a list of the exclusions.

        Apparently not.

          Seems to cover just about every major brand. Unfortunately, Focusrite is on the list; otherwise, I'd probably join you in getting a new interface.

            Get a Steinberg That's what I'm doing, I'll get the MR816x. Which one were you going for?

            Edit: Actually, Steinberg is in the list, but when I add the coupon to my cart, it updates the price with a 15% discount. Now I'm wondering....

              MF does not stock anything of interest for me right now that is not excluded.

              A couple of manufacturers not excluded that might be of interest are Access Music and Dave Smith Instruments.

              The exclusions are supposedly due to supplier agreements. I can understand that various manufacturers do not want blanket sales to dilute the perceived value of their products.

                  I had trouble trying to get the discount on a Moog CP-251. I called and the sales rep. was still willing to honor the discount. Haven't ordered one yet, but probably will - once my MiniBrute gets here.

                    Moog is on the exclusion list. I got the discount when I bought my Voyager way back when. I am not sure if Moog was on the exclusion list at the time. I received the email from MF and just called and asked and the sales rep gave me the discount. I know for a fact that RME was not on the list at one time (they are now) because I bought my Fireface 800 via a 15% off sale.

                    Looking some more, I was surprised to see that MOTU is not on the list, so if you are looking for an interface you could go with one of theirs. If you are a guitar player and want a strat-like guitar that is as good or better than the Fender American Classic Strat (at least in my opinion), you can get a G&L S500 or Legacy (American not Tribute series - though for starter guitars the Tribute series are damned good). I owned a gorgeous Swamp Ash Fender American Classic for a while along with my Swamp Ash S500 and sold the Fender but kept the G&L (it is looking at me from above my monitor right now). I also see that Genz Benz, H&K, Koch, and THD guitar amps are up for grabs. I guess it is Keyboard players that are SOL with the sale - only two major manufacturers are not on the list (as mentioned above).

                      I don't run Cubase, though.

                      The interface I was looking at was the Pro 24 DSP. I like the ADAT/S-PDIF interface and I especially like the VRM mode, as I do a good amount of mixing on headphones.

                        I was also looking at the Saffire Pro 40, in terms of value it's pretty unbeatable right now. But I keep hearing about the D-Pre's on the Steinberg so I'll spend the extra money on that.

                        I will run it in Logic Pro. The MR816X and the CSX can run on any DAW, not just Cubase. But the CSX extras only work in Cubase, so I'm getting the X.

                          Hopefully that remains the case. I'd still like to get one of the keyboard Evolvers someday, but now is not the time.

                            I have the Pro 40 but thought about the Steinberg. I prefer the metering and routing of the Focusrite and it was much cheaper. You may be pickier about mic pres than I am, though.

                            The best reason to buy the Steinberg is you're already using Cubase or a Motif with FW card.

                              Meatball, how do you like the 40? Do you use its preamps a lot or do you use external preamps?

                              The MR816X doesn't really have all that much that is Cubase-based. It's the CSX model that comes with the plugins.

                              I keep hearing about its preamps and whatnot, I really hope it's not just internet hype. I haven't had an interface before, and I can't afford buying a few to compare. So I'm kinda stuck with whatever I'll get.
