True Bypass - The Empress Compressor employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged.

Beautiful Case - It has a sparkle you can't deny
TC Spectra Comp - £20
So this pedal works in respect that it works as a compressor as advertised, however there are faults which I have been told can be fixed but would cost. The power point is intermittent if fiddled with and for some reason I have only been able to beam one toneprint to it. I do not have the USB cable that comes it was supplied with. I got this from eBay and stupidly did not check it worked for over a month as life got in the way. In very good condition aesthetically.
Up for sale is a pair of award winning top-of-the-range Mackie Studio Monitors. THX certified - and you won't need an additional sub!
These have been in my "studio" space providing big sounds for both the enjoyment of music and whilst I am teaching. They are used and there are marks around the cabinets where they have been moved from one house to another.
I've never needed to push them (due to working from home and can't wake the kids etc etc). The only foible I know about these speakers is that one doesn't drop in to "sleep" mode - i.e. powering down when they haven't been used for an extended period. But that's super fine as the on/off switch is on the front of the cabinet anyway!
Now, they ARE boxed up in a proper Mackie shipping carton ready to go after coming off my desk this morning. However I would strongly recommend collection. especially at this price. These things are +£600 EACH at online prices. The pair for £400 - Bank Transfer or Cash on collection.
If you must have them shipped, I will recommend a courier but arranging is for you - As I say, collection is recommended but if you must, then shipping is your responsibility. Look at them beautiful cones! They're all fragile and everything!!!!
These things sound blooming lovely and have helped me record bass for more than one album.
The one-piece cast aluminum Zero Edge Baffle™ features precisely engineered curvature that minimizes diffraction for a crystal clear image of your mix, and effectively controls sound waves so you get detailed lows, full, articulate mids, and shimmering highs.
The HRmk2 Series monitors contain separate onboard amplifiers for each driver, plus onboard active crossovers and time-correction circuitry, which helps ensure highs and lows reach your ears at the same time. The HRmk2s also have protection circuitry built in to protect from damaging input levels.
We go to elaborate lengths to ensure each HRmk2 sounds as good as our experts intended. Each one we manufacture is subject to rigorous testing and pre-screening during the production process, then calibrated and tuned with an environmentally controlled test chamber before final packaging.
The HRmk2 monitors feature a wood cabinet, with custom internal bracing to increase its strength and rigidity in desired locations. To absorb internal reflections and dampen standing waves inside the cabinet, an open-cell adiabatic foam material is placed strategically inside the box
POWER AND OVERLOAD LED
Our LED power indicator is a tasty shade of white and red for when things get pushed a little too hard. We took care to make sure the brightness is just right, too. The light shines bright enough so you can see it just fine in a well-lit room, and in a dark environment, it won’t distract or blind you.
Back story - I've just replaced the motherboard in my MacBook Pro and was in the process of reinstalling all of my plugins when my system crashed and I had to reinstall the OS from scratch.
During the first bout of maintenance I'd recovered the licenses from Waves Central, as they'd disappeared from my system in the interim - don't know how or why.
When I tried to relicense them after the OS reinstall I was told that they were 'not recoverable', as I'd already recovered them once - to the HDD that crashed and was wiped.
I emailed tech support and had this response:
"As you already used the License Recovery option once this year, and our company policy allows only one license recovery per year, I would like to forward a request to our higher management.
Note that I will be able to forward the request only for the licenses that are covered by the Waves Update Plan coverage.
To forward this, please provide me with the following:
The reason why the first License Recovery took place.
The reason why you need to use the License Recovery again.
Any proof of purchase for the new Logic Board such as invoice/receipt.
As only your version 11 licenses are covered by the Waves Update Plan, once you will renew Waves Update Plan coverage for your version 9 and 10 licenses, you will be eligible for updating it to the latest version.
This will register a new V11 license to your account with one license recovery option to the license.
Once renewing the Waves Update Plan, please refer to our Install & Activate Products article and follow the steps provided to install your new version 11 plugins."
So basically it'll cost me $240 to update my licenses to the current version, and then I have to essentially beg for my licenses.
I'd be interested to know other BCers thoughts on this, as it feels like I'm having to buy them again, and it feels like customers who play by the rules, and purchase licenses are being punished for the actions of others who pirate software.
