Mackie Mixers

Can’t say enough good things about mackie mixers, I’ve had a CR 1604 for a year and a 2nd gen mixwiz that’s probably the same age or older. That said my main desk is 2x yamaha 01V built in 98. Both are excellent. With yamaha though they produce many many different types and price points. Over the years they’ve had some good small mackie mixers. In the last 5+ years they’ve been on point though.

Mackie CR 1604

Presonus Firebox

Worked straight out of the box and never missed a beat. Solidly built little fella. I can only compare it to a few other audio interfaces I’ve used in the past (an old USB Tascam USsomething, m-audio mobile pre, a tapco Link.USB and a cheap behringer mixer) and it sounds much better to those rightly so, cheaper, interfaces. No problems with reliability, though I have only used it for getting my sounds into my computer and haven’t exactly stretched it. 2 channels of backing music and 1 channel for click track, should be great for my application. Get your presonus firebox at guitar center.

Vocal Mic

A lot of people love to sing. They sing in karaokes, in parties and even at home. Some have their own mini karaoke systems at home and are able to sing their favorites songs any time. To make the voice even more natural, a microphone like the Shure SM57 at Music123 is used. It can be really fun hearing yourself sing like a professional.

Amp for the Guitar

Electric guitars are quite popular and are used by a lot of musicians and especially rock bands. They create a different sound going through their amplifiers and out the speakers. But not only electric guitars can be used with amplifiers. Some use Marshall amps for their acoustic guitars. Any guitar player can connect their guitars to an amp for better and crisp sound. They may like blues, rock, pop or any kind of music. The amp would help enhance the sound for a lot of people to enjoy.

Musical Instruments and Accessories

There are different musical instruments that bands use. The most popular are of course the keyboard and guitar. There are also gadgets and other electronics that are used like amplifiers, speakers, microphones and stands. There are different manufacturers that have all of the instruments and accessories or focus on certain types of instruments used for bands and concerts. Some prefer certain brands like top Peavey instruments and amplifiers. They want to make sure that the devices and instruments are compatible with each other. There is less worry when the instruments and gadgets were designed for each other.

Noise Cancelling Heaphones

Heaphones can be brought anywhere and are quite convenient for those who want to listen to their music. But sometimes they are not able to hear their music properly especially when there is a lot of outside noise. The regular headphones have now been improved. There are noise cancelling headphones that cancel out the noise heard in the environment making you hear only the music of file you want to listen to. It is also used in studios for recordings so that the singer can hear themselves better. It helps them concentrate on their song and make better music.

Guitar Pickups

Though electric guitars need to be connected to amplifiers and speakers, there are still a lot who prefer the sound that it produces especially if they are more of a rock fan. They like the distortions and sharp sounds the guitar produces using their pickups. If there is a need to replace your pickups, there are lots different styles and designs by different manufacturers thay may suit your taste.

Positioning Stages

There are many things that have been invented and developed to make things easier. A lot of manufacturers even use automation for faster and more efficient processing. The movements of machines in industries that are controlled by computers may use mechanical arms or ball slide positioning stages. With the use of these parts, linear motion can be controlled or can even trigger or signal the movement of another part of the machine that may move in another direction. The idea may seem so simple but when things are seen, it looks like a complicated machine that is designed or programmed to do certain work. These machines are a big help in industries.

Guitar Tuner

Not all guitar players are good at tuning their guitars. They sometimes have their guitars tuned by somebody else or by the dealer. It takes a good ear to tune a guitar and sometimes when in a crowded place, it’s not so easy tuning the guitar. Though guitar players practice also tuning their own guitars, a lot buy guitar tuner for easier and faster tuning especially when in events and concerts. There are just some times when these tuners are needed because of time constraints and it is also a big help for those who have not yet learned how to tune their guitars properly.

Slow Computer

It is quite frustrating when you are working with a slow computer. Everything seems to take a lot of time even when you are just browsing for things to buy. Sometimes saving files needed for the office also takes time and it just feels like the computer is not able to do anything else when this happens. There are software that help on how to speed up computer processes. They also maintain the system and fix issues that makes the PC slow down. It is quite a tool especially for offices that uses computers to automate their systems.
