Ps: There's a guy selling his Controller One for 5'300 Swiss Francs on the same site I bought my stuff

 

5'300 Swiss Francs?  What's that come out to in strip club passes?

 

$5.345.44  in U.S. dollars ...

 

Bargain !.. :p 

 

 

It doesn't come with strip club passes. I mailed the guy, telling him that I bought my C1 from D-Styles for 1500 dollars and that if ever he couldn't sell his for 5'300 Swiss Francs, that I be willing to pick it up for 530 Swiss Francs. I told him to contact me only if he's serious about it...

 

 

I thought D was selling them for $1350?  Dave was out by the time I got mine and Ric wanted something like $1,600 but he ended up selling it to me for $1,450.  These days I'd buy a new one for $1,600 in a heartbeat.

Mine was 1500 $ with the shipping to Switzerland and it's also the Euro-Version with 220 volts

 

And yes I would also buy another one for 1600 $...but not for 5300 Swiss Francs

Last summer I scored a Technics M5G for $100 and a quarter of dank. I priced it on ebay and noticed it was selling for around $1100 used, so I sold mine, but ended up getting $800 'cause I have low ebay transactions, although a 100% rating. I split the money with the dude who gave it to me mad cheap, then I bailed his 1210's out of pawn for $125 and subsequently got to keep them. These are the tables I've been wanting for ages and I'm very happy with them.

BTW, arkei, how do like the 707? I've had a couple of those and absolutely loved them. They're great for cutting, trick mixing as well as long-winded mixes. I had a multi-effects pedal (Line 6) hooked up, which worked out perfectly. I've since sold the mixer to my roommate, which now looks dope with the grey mixer alongside his competition orange decks.

I absolutely like it. I already have the 909 so I knew what I was getting. Plus the chick I bought it from, wasen't really using it at all so it's in mint condition. I use it with my Pioneer DVJ-X1 and the SP-505.

HUGE props all round, man. Nuff karma points plus 1210s and a little loot into the bargain? KILLED IT

Look, we should all know by now Pete doesn't get into that shiny G-Funk sound. If it doesn't sound like a discarded flip-flop hitting an old bin lid, recorded onto a dictaphone, then pressed to shellac and buried in a pile of gravel for thirty years, dug up and sampled on an S950 with a broken dial, he ain't fucking with it.

I got a broken Ecler 380 for free from the old record shop i used to work in. After 5 years abroad, it had been sitting around doing nothing i decided to get it fixed, cost me 90Euro. Fader is perfect.

Got a RANE 56 for €200 last year

A pair of pdx 2000s also for €200.

Picked up a Vestax 05 PRO, the one with the loop and delay for €50 and stuck one of those cheap pro x faders in. (they sent me 4 prox's when i actually only bought 2, so they were even cheaper!)

 

I did buy my Pioneer s9 at the peak of the post brexit Sterling-euro rate in my favour. so it was as bargain as you can kinda get...

If anyone else looking for a discounted S9 I got £125 off the price at Juno.co.uk by asking for the better price (with a bit of back n forth emails), worth a try!

Thanks Pete, it couldn't have worked out better.

 

BTW, love reading about all these scores. Incredible deals for good people.

I am right on the edge of buying izotope rx advanced, but I know they're going to do a deal on it as soon as I've gone for it. It's SO expensive, the basic plugin pack is on offer now for about 40 but I need the one with the spectral denoiser which is 350!

350! For a bit of software that brings no joy, just utility! Plus, because it's more of a utility than a production tool they don't have it in a bundle with ozone or neuron, which I'm also kind of intrigued by.

I sort of think of ozone and t-racks and the like in the same vein as they were in the 90s - 'good toys' for getting a master that'll fool you until the novelty wears off... I'm aware that they're pretty shit hot now (maybe not t-tracks?) but also that I could get the same results with the multitude of separate plugins I have, I reckon. Also, I have a crush on u-he and their presswerk plugin is really tempting if I'm going to spend more money on something I don't really need.Theyre all gits.

I'm demoing something called Acon denoiser which is 99 and pretty good, but not as good as the izotope one... I don't know whether it's a waste to spend a still not inconsiderable amount on something worse or just get the best one in the first place...

This post was a lot longer than I originally planned.

The idea of taking noise away is anathema to me so I can't comment, Chris ;)

I do really like Ozone 7, though. Whilst it's possible to do everything with a plugin chain, the only way I could do that at present is by mastering in a DAW and I don't like doing that so Ozone wins for me. I'm not winning any awards for mastering - it's just something I need to do without having the money to spend on getting somebody else who really knows their shit to do it for me. As a result of that, Ozone is my go-to and I wouldn't really bother with anything else personally.

Look, we should all know by now Pete doesn't get into that shiny G-Funk sound.

Arg don't say that, it's on offer! I'll have to demo it tonight and tomorrow and decide.

It's not sweet crackles and dust I'm looking to get rid of, it's shit from a bad room recording for a video. The results are pretty amazing really, not as good as doing it right in the first place but it's a damn sight simpler to do a quick setup and run it through the noise reduction when audio quality isn't the number 1 concern... shit I'm persuading myself!

And I misspoke too - I don't need advanced I just need standard, which is still 350 but the advanced is 1150!!!

I think this started as a 'savvy research found me something as good for a third the price' post to get me in keeping with the topic btw. Oops 🤔

I know I'm in the wrong saying this, but buying plugins does feel a bit like spending money on imaginary friends.

IF that isn't sig-worthy I don't know what is!

I almost bought this tone/sweep generator the other day but then I realized it uses some weird typo of cable.  It looked kind of like this

I can totally relate to this. Though I have never needed a denoiser so when I feel like buying plugins... I buy guitar pedals ;)

I just bought an irig midi (30pin connector) for my old iPhone4 just to use it with synths (Alchemy and similar) for 15€ when usually they go 25/30€ most of the time at second hand market... ;)
