Halloween Special

Morning all. As you know today is Halloween, and to mark the occasion I thought id do a little Halloween themed drum cover. Now this was a toss up between Thriller and Ghostbusters, But as im in the process of making a Michael Jackson mini series which I will be incorporating Thriller into.

Behringer USB 2442fx

Hello all.

As I promised in a previous blog I will continue to look at the equipment I use for recording and editing my drum covers.

Today ill be looking at the Behringer USB 2442fx sound mixer. This is the heart and soul of my setup as without this the Mic’s, PC and even the drum kit its self is pretty much useless for recording.

I will at some point be doing a drum tour of my kit and recording setup. Until then pictures of the unit will have to do.

Ive owned this unit for a little over 8 months now. And Ive go to say it’s a good steardy piece of kit. It’s got a decent weight to it and nice and bulky. Ive had only 1 problem and annoyance with it since Ive had it, and that is Channel 3 has stopped working when using the XLR input. Unfortunately I do not have any other equipment to test the other types of inputs on the channel (really should get around to doing that)
