Synths are too complicated, at least for me. If I need one, then I use to use Zebralette. But I’m thinking of upgrading to Zebra2. Diva is another one which sounds superb but it’s way too CPU hungry.
It’s a bird’s eye figured Limited Edition Epiphone Les Paul, very rare. It was a birthday present from my dad, I guess it was my 14th. We’ve had great times on stage. Believe when I say: She’s even more prescious in natura.
You have to be sure the “kontakt.dll” file is in your VST Folder (under Windows usually under Programms\Steinberg\VstPlugins). You can check this via your Browser or inside Cubase through: Devices -> Plugin Information. Keep in mind that 64-bit plugins won’t show up in 32-bit DAWs.
Congrats Udo, keep it up!
Yep, thanks envato
11 so far.
After a lot of additional research (input form this forum obviously included) I went for Sennheiser HD600… Very happy with the purchase, clean and ‘tidy’ sound…enjoying it a lot!
Congrats, great choice! Keep in mind that the cables from the HD600 and the HD650 are interchangable (650 cables are better ). Everything from Sennheiser under the 600 is IMHO not suitable for studio use (except the HD 280 any maybe the HD-25).
Like Phil, I’ve decided to also get the Beyerdynamic DT 770’s. However, I notice when I go to amazon there are three options: 32 ohms, 80 ohms, and 250 ohms. I’m a total noobie to all of this stuff, would anyone be willing to explain what the difference is here, and why I may want 80 ohms as opposed to 250?
Ohms = impedance. Your iPod has an output of around 30 Ohms. That means you’ll have problems driving a 300 Ohm headphone with your iPod. It’ll sound undefined and low in volume.
Here’s where the 30-80 Ohm Headphones or Headamps come into the game. You’ll have no problem driving a 32 Ohm headphone with your iPod. If you choose to buy a headphone with a higher impedance, a headphoneamp is recommeded. It provides the power to get the best sound out of your headphones (recommeded headamp: HPA V200).
Here’s a review of the dt880 which explains the different Ohm values: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbyuSFyYOVs
TBH I can’t recommend Beyerdynamic because of it’s peak at about 9kHz. They can be fatigueing after a while (my opinion, others might not have any problems with it). However, if you want to buy ‘em, choose the 250Ohm versions, dt770 for recording, dt880 for mixing.
Keep in mind that everyone has his own opinion on how a headphone should sound and feel (comfortwise). That’s why comparing ‘em in the shops is a must.
