  1. Posted a response but I think it got lost. argh. Anyway, my request would be a 2-parter, for LDCs and dynamics, respectively. My offhand cut on 5 each might go and in no order (this could change tomorrow): LDCs sE X1A (and/or the X1S, but the A is better bang/buck IMO) Behringer C1 (again: bang/buck) MXL 67G (kinda bang/buck but honestly just a great mic regardless) AKG 220 Sennheiser 609 Dynamics Shure 57 Shure 57 Beta (supercardioid) Sennheiser 835 Sennheiser 845 (supercardioid) GLS 58 (once more: bang/buck for the truly cash-strapped)
  2. No comments? Is everyone but me rich? A fine list. I'd love to see you do an under $250 one.
  3. I'm sorry but I can't stand spin doctoring and making excuses for anyone, including an entire company, and that's all this is. This company has been mismanaged for a long time while their product line has been overpriced with lesser quality and poor customer service; they had it coming. And I couldn't care less how old the company is; totally irrelevant. PS, I wish their employees no ill will but have absolutely no financial or ethical responsibility to them, so telling me to support this company to help them get along is absurd. PS #2, I am hardly rich myself, so I go where I get the best bang for my buck. If that's a Gibson, great; if not, I'm buying elsewhere, so let's put away the violins. If Gibson wanted more business, they should have managed the company better and made a better product for a better price.
  4. [QUOTE=moogerfooger;n32492410]cant buy a thrill countdown to ecstacy pretzel logic actual the streak goes on with Katy lied Royal scam and Aja [/QUOTE] Beat me to it. I'd toss Gaucho in there too. Someone probably mentioned this one too, but Billy Joel - The Stranger, 52d St, Glass Houses. I think he is in a 3-horse race with the Dan and the Beatles for consecutive excellent albums, but that's the best 3 in a row from him. Even among my fav artists, I can't think of anyone else who can rival that kind of streak. Pat Metheny maybe, if we extend across all genres.
  5. Off the top for me: FB3300 EZKeys Absynth Eyeing Zebra and Serum which I hear good things about. Need good presets though (which is why Massive will never make my list). Also this does not include "specialty" synths which are not really general, broad synths but have a niche sound etc.
  6. kind of. Of course the media plays its usual shameless, knuckle-dragging click bait game and tries so desperately to pump more "drama" into it than there really is with the "MF" titles: http://time.com/5392625/paul-mccartney-on-quincy-jones/ Props on Sir Paul taking the high road (as I'd expect) and Jones still looking like a nut case/schmuck (which at this point I also expect).
