Blue Mikey Digital

Price: $100


Video Review::


Features/Specs:
Transducer type: Condenser, Pressure Gradient
Polar patterns: Cardioid
Frequency Response: 35Hz 20kHz
Sample Rate: 44.1kHz/16 bit
Weight: .18 lbs.
Dimensions 2.5 (L) x 2.5 (W) x .5 (H)


Pros:
- Easy to use
- Improoved Sound
- Decent Features
- Pivot Mount

Cons:
- Handling Noise
- Wind Noise
- Price
- Old Style Connection

My take on it all:
This is another loaner product Blue Mics gave to me for review and I must say, save your money on this one!
I thought it was going to be a fantastic mic...and it does in fact improve your recording quality with it's stereo capsule array however it does not fit the price of $100 as it lacks in areas such as wind noise, software it works with, and the older style connection which is now just about discontinued.
I tried to say something nice about this one, but every now and then I come across one that I just don't have anything nice to say and this is one of them.

Boss TU-3 Tuning Pedal

Price: $100


Video Review::


Features/Specs:
Transducer type: Condenser, Pressure Gradient
Polar patterns: Cardioid
Frequency Response: 35Hz 20kHz
Sample Rate: 44.1kHz/16 bit
Weight: .18 lbs.
Dimensions 2.5 (L) x 2.5 (W) x .5 (H)


Pros:
  • Accurate 21-segment LED meter
  • New High-Brightness mode enhances meter visibility outdoors
  • Fast Accu-Pitch technology accurate to +/- one cent
  • Allows tuning of Guitar and Bass with multiple tuning types
  • Dual outputs allow for true bypass or mute mode which can be used at same time
  • Dual power jacks allow the ability to power other pedals with optional power supply

Cons:
  • Eats batteries (so be sure to unplug input cable at end of use!)

My take on it all:
This is something I picked up when I went to a guitar center with my cousin. I have been meaning to pick up a dedicated pedal as my Yamaha Magicstomp was not accurate eough. Long story short, this thing has a TON of features and tunes your guitar or bass really fast and accurate. I think it's a great product. I did think my unit was defective after running through 2 9v batteries in 2 days, but turns out the manual says it's still running unless the input cable is unplugged! ....so yea, be sure you unplug that unless you run off of 9v outlet power like I just ordered.
Overall, a great product and much improoved over the TU-2 unit, and I'd highly suggest buying it.

Video review soon to come!

PreSonus StudioLIVE 16.0.2

Price: $1,000


Features/Specs:
16 Total Input Channels
16 Input & 16 Output FireWire Interface
8 Mono Mic & Line Input Channels
4 Stereo Line Channel Inputs
Compact Size
XMAX Class A Mic Preamps x12
32-Bit Digital Effects Processors x2
Full Dynamics Processing
iPad, iPhone or Laptop Remote Control
Mac & Windows OS


Pros:
  • Great sound quality
  • Outstanaing routing
  • Ability to remote mix with Apple products
  • Firewire out of each channel including playback of each channel

Cons:
  • Limited to Apple for external/wireless mixing/control
  • Firewire can be picky on some computers (Check firewire comparability)
  • Shows as only one playback and recording source in Windows (compared to old FP10)

My take on it all:
I had gotten this mixer in studio and within 1 week of owning it, I sent it back. I loved the features but it did not work well with my computer under two approved firewire cards. I had random pops, dropouts of audio, static....was all just too random to track down even after going over with PreSonus support.
Don't get me wrong, these products work fine in some cases, I've used these boards in the past at venues that have them installed, but for me they didn't work nor did it fit my setup.

Video vlog with further thoughts coming soon...
