  1. Bump - I should say that the wiring is not quick-connect; so some soldering will be required.
  2. Solid piece of kit, works as expected on all channels. Not needed following upgrade £50 plus postage at cost
  3. Two EMG DC40 soapbars- great sound, but no longer needed. One logo faded slightly. £50 for the pair, plus postage at cost (should be a few quid) EMG 2 band BTC stacked preamp, plus wired harness - pickup switch, 2 volumes, output jack, and battery. £50 for the lot, plus postage at cost (a few quid) Discount if you take the lot!
  4. This is a good case, smaller footprint than most 4u’s. Glwts
  5. Bought pickups+ preamp from John, all fantastic. Thanks
  6. bought a strap, all good, thanks!
  7. Roman, not sure if my PMs are getting through - did you get my reply to your enquiry about the strap I have for sale?

  8. Gentle bump - happy to take on any post-production (mixing / mastering), location or live recording, or FOH live mixing. Most recently I have been doing live sound at Blues Kitchen in Camden and assisted on recording on one of the finest UK choirs, Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge. Hit me up with any projects please.
  9. Thanks Skol303. Here's gentle (and very occasional bump) :-)
  10. I wouldn't advise that approach, as you'd just a wobble around without a centre pitch. That may work as occasional effect but don't over-rely on it! You need to train your ears to hear intervals and know what the note you are playing is supposed to sound like. There is no substitute for accurate pitching....
  11. Good points, and I bow to superior knowledge of acoustics! Though I think whether speakers are front-ported or rear-ported may have an effect on how close to the wall you'd want them... Perhaps I was overstating effects of furniture, somewhat ;-)
  12. My current music production space is a former bedroom of a rented house! Bass traps are held in place with very small nails / picture frame hooks. it took about a day but achieved a very significant improvement. It's still not a great space for mixing, but between headphones and monitor speakers, my mixes translate exactly as I'd expect them - so can't really ask for more.... Whilst it's a massive subject in itself, I'd start room treatment by moving speakers so they sound as good as possible (probably would help to have some space away from the wall in most cases, triangular position with the listener, symmetrically positioned about the room).... a sofa behind the listening position will help as bass trap, as would a book case with randomly filled books (as a diffuser). I'd see if you can attach some lightweight acoustic absorbers behind speakers, on the side walls and to ceiling above listening position... imagine you had a mirror, and everywhere the sound would hit a wall once and glance back at you should ideally have an absorber. That will take care of first order reflections, which are most troublesome. You may find some improvement with sonarworks in an untreated room, but it won't make your mixes sound better overnight, and I'd bet you'd end up exchanging one set of acoustic problems for another.... so save your money and work on the underlying problem of your room acoustics!
  13. IMO headphone correction software is somewhat self-defeating as a concept. A properly-designed set of monitoring cans will already be optimised by the manufacturer to be as 'useful' as possible, within the limitations of the drivers / materials being used! If you don't like how the headphones sound, it would be better to get headphones that you do like... After all, headphones just show a part of the picture, e.g. it's very hard to judge some things (mix width/depth/reverb/etc) on headphones alone, and they'll never tell you everything you need to 'know' about a mix. Get used to what music sounds like in the particular set of headphones and move on. I've used both ATH50 and DT880Pro for mixing. I liked both, but ATH seemed somewhat hard in the upper mids, and DT880's are a tad mushy in the low mids (though more natural overall, maybe more revealing). ATH had better isolation.... but probably DT880s would edge it for mixing. I'd recommend Sennheiser HD600 over both - THE headphones of choice for many top classical recordists, plus many others - though some may find them 'boring'... Maybe you've already done this, but I wouldn't reach for any room correction software until you've spent some time and effort sorting out the room itself, y'know, with physical acoustic treatment, optimising speaker positioning, etc.
