epiphone casinovg99

gk3  roland pickup

The Beatles, according to legend, had several Epiphone Casios.  At the time the P-90 pickups were a huge part of rock N roll.  Today I have mine no more than 3 feet away at all times.  I hot rodded my Casino with a Roland GK3 pickup, which, through my VG99, can create just about any tone out there, and play my MIDI synths as well.

Tweak:  Perhaps the world's easiest-to-use Firewire Interface (replaces all the functions of your soundcard as it adds higher quality inputs and outputs).  You can plug a microphone or a guitar or bass or keyboard into those front panel "combo" jacks.  Your active monitors connect on the back.  Also on the back you can connect a 2 channel line level device, like a synth, or a guitar processor like the Pods.   You get a stereo s/pdif (digital) in and out for the perfect transfers from other gear you have with digital i/o.
Try out some of the entry level sequencers (recording software) included.  The firebox is a great way to get started as a computer assisted composer or producer.  And they just lowered the price from $300 to $250.  Add your computer (must have firewire) an inexpensive keyboard controller and some powered monitors (or connect it to a hi-fi) and you have your own recording studio that you can make multi-track music on all night long.  Click the pic.

The Yamaha N12 Digital Mixing Studio is a mixing console with an analog-like mixing interface which boasts ease of operation for professional quality recording and mixdown. Connecting a computer to the mixer's IEEE 1394 port enables you to configure an ideal recording environment with seamless integration into Cubase 4.

The N12 is new and in its own class.  It is not only a mixer, but an audio interface as well, designed to work with Cubase 4.  Basically what we have here is a 12x4 analog mixer joined with a 16x16 firewire audio interface.  8 preamps.

I think we are going to see the trend continue to have mixer and audio interfaces combined.  What is exciting here is that you can actually route 10 tracks from Cubase over firewire and mix them on the 10 faders you see.
