Two new songs from an amateur:So, in all fairness, the guy -is- a beginning musician, so the performance is a bit scrappy and loose.
Anyway, here are two songs that I just finished, well, almost finished recording and mixing. (finished if he doesn't want any further changes) Vocals and Acoustic were recorded at his house, then he came over to my place to use a synth and VSTi for the bass/keys/etc.
Drums are done using a very simple rhythm he wanted, which I programmed snare and kick into Jamstix, and let the drummer models take over for the rest. Adjusting the fills and accents to kinda fit took awhile. :P
Anyway, though he could use some lessons in theory and musicianship, the singing and performance isn't totally bad. (I've heard worse cover bands at least) I pointed him to some theory videos, and suggested he find a tutor and music teacher at some point when he can afford it.
And yes, I was bad, and uploaded MP3s to soundcloud instead of the WAV files, so they probably got recompressed for streaming. :P

FEEDBACK REQUESTI'm working on my band's album and I have the mix to where I think sounds pretty good... but there's just something lacking that I can't pinpoint. It just doesn't have that oooomph in bigger rooms/car stereos. It sounds awesome in headphones though! Looking for some opinions/feedback on what you hear and think I should adjust. More boom in the kick? Guitars too flat? Vocals too dry? HELP!!
Behr MX9000 PSU Probs? Yep, me too. 2002 - 2014 lasted longer than some!!!I've had this desk and PSU since 2002 (VERY very LIGHT use!!) and had no probs until 2011 when one channel trim failed and was left pretty low in dB's but usable. Then, 2012 two other channels went south in a similar fashion.

Then in 2013, after an extended period of no use, I turned her on and all the meterbridge LED's across the board were fully maxed to the top!! and stayed that way (no unusual sounds ) until I turned it off and sat around depressed for some time... then kept it off & gave ALL the pots and switches a good ON/OFF 20 to 30 times each along with vigorous multiple slides of the faders over and over to hopefully expose some good metal to metal contact...As you could imagine that took about a 1/2 hour...turned it on again and it has just kept it's head above water until today...March 7 2014. Again I haven't used it in over 4 months because of different circumstances, but alas, the dreaded -17 volt light aint on and the main PFL solo LED isn't working. But all other solo LEDs are.
I guess the more robust rectifier replacements that've been talked about on other threads seems possible to me.
Too bad we all didn't wait until NOW to jump on board a Behringer product of this size, now that they're making quality gear after financially acquiring MIDAS.
I really like the layout of the desk. Just thought I'd join in on of the few places I see anyone talk about this piece of equipment MX9000.
I plan on checking into those Cap replacements and Reg's.
Thanks for being here. It's nice to see over a decade of banter and fixes here, right when I decide to join and post for the 1st time... cool.
Native Instruments Introduces SUPERCHARGER GTBerlin, February 25, 2014 – Native Instruments today released SUPERCHARGER GT – a compressor inspired by the rich, tube-driven sound of a boutique hardware unit.

SUPERCHARGER GT was designed for simple yet comprehensive sound shaping. Producers can quickly dial in a wide range of compression effects using a single 'Compress' knob. The effect's automatic make-up gain allows them to stay focused on the sound of the effect without having to compensate for the drop in volume compression can sometimes cause. Pre-set Attack and Release settings provide a starting point for setting SUPERCHARGER GT's response to incoming signals – producers can start with Punch, Gentle, and Slam modes. Dedicated Attack and Release controls allow an additional degree of fine-tuning.
Aside from compression, SUPERCHARGER GT also delivers a set of tone-shaping controls that make it more than just a compressor effect. A 'Saturation' knob with Mild, Crisp, and Slam saturation types give users three ways to add harmonic content to their tracks. At lower settings, SUPERCHARGER GT offers subtle harmonic enhancement. At more extreme settings it delivers raw, distorted coloration. The 'Character' knob can fill in missing low end and smooth out unruly high frequencies with Fat, Warm, and Aggressive character modes adding to its versatility. Furthermore, a mid/side mode lets producers create space in a mix by applying the effect only to the left and right sides of a signal – perfect for adjusting stereo imaging. A detector high pass prevents unruly low end signals from mis-triggering the compressor. Combined, these features provide producers dynamic control, warmth, and sonic shaping in one convenient plug-in.
SUPERCHARGER GT is available as a software download at the NI Online Shop for $99 / 99 € / £89 / ¥ 9,800.
Owners of SUPERCHARGER can upgrade for a special price of $49 / 49 € / £42 / ¥ 4,800 – a $50 / 50 € / £43 / ¥ 5,000 saving from the regular price.
