BSS FDS-366 OmniDrive Compact Plus

Aug 1, 2003, By Mark Frink

I carry my Technomad ProRack to every one-off. It contains three key pieces of audio gear that I don't feel comfortable without: The Midas XL-42 (reviewed in Mix, March '02) is a piece of the rock — a chip off of the old block — that gives me the same great mic pre and EQ found on an XL4 console; the new TC Electronic Reverb 4000 (reviewed in this issue, see page 104), which replaces my trusty old M5000; and the BSS FDS-366 OmniDrive Compact Plus....

Cakewalk Project5

Jul 1, 2003, BY JOHN MCJUNKIN

Project5 is the new synth/sampler/drum machine-in-a-virtual-rack application from Cakewalk.

Universal Audio's Model 6176 Channel Strip is a two-rackspace unit containing one channel from UA's Class-A 2-610 tube mic preamp and a UA 1176LN peak limiter.
