sweetwaterSweetwater is located in Fort Wayne, IN…in the heart of the Midwest.  Maybe that’s why I like ’em.

I’d say they’re among the top 5 audio equipment distributors in the country.  I like to repurpose on this blog the newsletters I get from them, ’cause I think they have good deals, excellent people, and great product support.  Maybe you’re looking for something just now they’re putting on special pricing.

Check it out HERE.

Working with top-notch VO talent and audio engineer Ben Wilson for the last couple of weeks has sent me on a fact-finding mission through my audio chain.  For starters, I found out that my Sennheiser MKH416 probably has a damaged condenser and I’ve enlisted my local dealer (Guitar Center) to help me send it back for repairs.  I hear Sennheiser is pretty good in taking care of their customers.lexicom

What I also found in my audio quality investigation is that I probabaly needed a new sound card.  ‘Trouble is,  I could barely find someone who wanted to sell me a traditional PCI card for my motherboard.  “Old technology” they said.  I ended up going with a Lexicon I-Onix U42S audio interface.  So far so good.

But…whenever you make a big change in your set-up like that, there are countless other adjustments to make… ya know?  I love/hate that.  I like to tinker, but sometimes, you just want to get it up and running.
