    Hey,
    Anyone have any regrets on any equiptment theyve ever bought.
    Ever bought somthing you've sold the next day and thought "not buying that crap again!" ?



    (Feel free to mention behringer equiptment, just don't talk about "behringer" itself being crap or not, thats not the point of the excersise)

    i needed a comp for my home studio.... the problem is... i have ears!

    the presonus digimax i bought comes to mind. $1500 bucks new. I found out the hard way that its operational noise when I increased the gain past half way on the pres was unaccpetable.

    I then sold the presonus and purchased, the mackie onyx 800r which is very very quiet and IMO has much better pres and features than the presonus digimax.

    I bought an Edirol MIDI controller that I had persistant problems with, which I didn't discover the nature of until after the return period had expired. Turns out it isn't compatable with a chipset in my computer. After weeks of tweaking buffer settings, updating drivers, bothering all my friends who know MIDI really well and stumping all of them, I got the box out one day and there in 4 point type on the corner of the box it says: "Not compatable with VIA chipset". Fortunately it wasn't expensive and I never registered it. Anyone looking for a controller?

    1. Oberheim OB-12, absolute rubbish,waste of money
    2. Behringer Ultrafex Pro, as above.

    I think this thread might run for a while

    Audio-Technica ATH-M20 headphones. I was looking for cheap headphones and got precisely what I wished for.

    Poprocks, you've just reminded me of another! I didnt realise I had so much rubbish. Sennheisser Cordless headphones. I thought these would be soooo handy whilst I was tracking. No thug of the headphone cable every few seconds, unfortunately they hiss and crackle and work intermittently near my audio gear.
    Absolute rubbish, waste of money

    100% agree, Derm. I had the same experience with JVC wireless headphones. Crap!

    Behringer B2 Pro mic. Now I'm going to take the capsule apart for my own amusement, so I suppose it wasn't such a bad idea after all :wink:

    Akai S900
    should have waited for the S950 at least

    Roland TR707
    should have done the 808 instead

    should never have sold my SH101
    ... or my Korg mono synth ... patch cords and all
    ah-well it was the 80's and digital synths were the go

    Cubase 3.52 and 4.0 ... yes two copies
    Should never have bought !
    I was stupid ... twice !!

    ADAT's
    glad I did buy ... BUT completely stuffed up the right time to sell out
    I though there would be a market for ADAT archive transfers to PT/DAW.
    wrong !!
    people just re-recorded into their DAWs at home.

    anyone want some low milage ADAT XT's and BRC
    :)

    HUI

    Mackie's HUI. The most horrid NFG POS of a controller that was ever built by anybody, hands down.

    I bought an E-mu 0404 a couple of days ago.

    I didn't really need it, but was curious what the Patchmix DSP and PowerFX were all about.

    And I found out...

    HA! HA! HA! HA! :lol: :p

    If you need some entertainment, you can join in with the ongoing, absolutely hilarious saga of these E-mu products over at the Unofficial E-mu Forums:

    http://www.productionforums.com/index.php?f=52&sid=bf8b7b92a78740c1ae6c96f1b8f1e977

    This is not a spam!

    It was the ONLY place I could find on the Net to find out what is really going on with this gear and how to fix my installation problems. This may help others on this forum.

    So if you are running E-mu gear and are thrilled or ready to commit suicide, that is the place to praise it or damn it to Hell.
