I’ve just recently purchased a Behringer X32 Producer to be the centrepiece of my mobile audio set-up. But as with anything that travels on the road, a good case is always worth the investment. I’ve been a long-time fan of SKB Cases, I own about 16 other SKB cases which are fantastic for carrying rack gear, mics and other stuff. These cases protect the gear well and have just enough flexibility to take some knocks (and reduce impacts). I love them!

On Going Repairs

I’ve finally fixed the haze machine

The curse of owning gear is that the more you have, the more often something will be broken. Keeping up with maintenance and repairs is vital, unfortunately this hazer has been sitting around dead for a far too long. I’ve just managed to get the haze machine going again. The hardest part was finding the time needed to dedicate to it’s repair. I’m very glad to have it back in action. Lighting just doesn’t look the same without a little haze.

I’ve always been impressed with M-Audio gear. They seem to get a good balance of doing something simply, reliably and also in-expensive. Since, I’m going to be selling my Tampa (as I’m getting rid of my studio equipment and focusing on live) I thought I would write a quick review of it.

In short, this is a fantastic mic pre to add some valve-like coloration to a signal in a subtle way.
