    I'm a HUGE fan of DIY...There's just too much info out there on the web not to take advantage of it. Spend time reading=save $$

    I find it difficult to do too much research online.
    I have found that half the advice online seems to be based on either personal experiences (often extreme) or it's based on what the marketing directors of the major companies seems to be pushing.

    It's just hard to sort out the bullsh.

    Hey I found this and I think I am going to try it. Basically you submit a track or tracks and they can mix, edit master or tune vocals. Looks legit and I am very interested to see the. Prices are the fairest I have seen for what is offered if i like it ill reply back.

    That is a pretty ignorant assumption .. I found it interesting and I actually posted it in the correct thread.

    Hardly, you posted in a 7-year-old thread that was referring to AUDIO GEAR purchases. And because I just got out of surgery a couple of days ago and am still in some "discomfort", I'm probably going to come off like an old grump, but...what you originally posted is SPAM, don't argue with the senior moderator. And you should have started a new thread, not hitchike an old one. That makes YOU look ignorant....

    Do you think for a minute that I cant access your IP? Did you also think that the wording and history in your BLOG isnt almost word for word the personal information on the site you assumedly 'found' ? Do you think that I just assume one thing or another without checking it out first?

    Anyway, if you want to post in the business section for your service be my guest. This isnt the appropriate forum for this. No matter what you think.

    Actually the Front Page Publishing is the proper forum for this. Scroll down to find it.

    Impulse, there's no point even posting a defence. You are always welcome to offer a reasonable service here. But anybody trying to trick people into trying something out is never gonna last more than a few seconds here.

    Its hardly DIY but I find it fascinating how often (and its fairly infrequent) I mention the 7C stuff here and the OP just flat ignores it. The DIY suggestion is incredibly insightful - not because the latest person who stated it is a genius, but because in fact, without a pretty damn good understanding of transformer loading, slew rates, capacitance, bandwidth, headroom etc etc most purchasers are going to be stumbiling in the dark - yet when presented with 3 options at $700 - one with a screen-printed front and $600 innards, one with a BIG LCD and $200 innards, and one reverse-engineered from an already bad circuit - the excuses I see people putting forward to justify the flashing-light purchase around the interwebz are nothing short of legendary.

    If I had a cent for the amount of people planning to spend $1500 and "go pro" without an understanding of what a transformer load would do to a mic, well, I could buy Dave's goatee, or at least put down a downpayment.

    Why don't people even try to begin to understand the theory - but yet they are prepared to shell out what is big money for them - $1, 2, $3,000!! If I wanted to buy a race car I'd spent more time talking to people before I bought - most people are pretty distrustful of mechanics, who really have no vested interest - but people will just hop on, ask a question, and then shell out $3k, albeit on credit....!?

    If it's for work, know how it's going to pay for itself. Sell off your old digital gear before it becomes obsolete.

    Hi there!

    It is always recommended to look for audio equipment blogs to know their weaknesses and strength
    from there, It will help you find your correct gears suitable for your requirement.

    Hope this one helps
     
  12. If you want to save money and if you are considering creating lots of audio products, I highly recommend that you create your own professional recording studio. If you want to produce quality products, you must be willing to invest on your recording tools and equipments. When doing your recording, make sure that you observe appropriate pacing.
