Takamine’s yearly limited edition model, the LTD2001, sets a beautiful tone for the new millennium, with its leaping dolphin motif. Quality woodwork and sound make this guitar a great player, and a good investment, too. Part of the proceeds from the sales of this model will go to the Cousteau Society to help in the preservation of ocean habitats.
The Sweetwater Digidesign tour will be in Cleveland next Thursday, 3/21. We’ll be showing off the awesome new 5.1 version of Pro Tools as well as the new Control 24 mixing surface with built in Focusrite preamps. Come see the state of the art in recording and production. We’ll be at the Holiday Inn West on Crocker road (actually in the town of Westlake, OH) with show times of 4:00 and 7:00 PM. More details available on our Events and Seminars web page.
For well over a year now we’ve been extolling the virtues of the Alesis MasterLink mastering recorder and CD burner. We’ve discussed everything from its great sounding converters, to its unique features and ability to archive material in high resolution 24/96 format. Others of prominence seem to agree. It was interesting to note some of the recent Grammy winners and nominees where at least one individual involved is reported to be using the MasterLink. Here’s the quick list:
