  1. Alrighy mate, thanks, as to why I hate it (not anymore)... it was because when I bought it I didn't have a penny, it took all I had to buy it, and it had very low output volume, it was a joke. That was 2012 when these interfaces were released? Now, I undust it, because my Tascam 16x08 sucks (output to harsh), my Uphoria 404hd (Behringer) has a better out put but still stucks (still harsh, not not as much as the Tascam) and since I had a Mbox original (Focusrite converters or something?) I swore that thing sounded great. So, after all this try and error, it suddenly hit me since the drivers were updated, why not try it again? (Because I have better gear now, a Yamaha receiver to power up my Yamaha NS244 monitors, DT Pro 990 headphones, Beyerdynamic) and yeah, I was right, my 2 newest/latest interfaces "colored" the output horribly, and this 2i2 sounds great, I can't believe all the journey I had to travel to reach this point. Strings with this interface through my monitors sound amazing, bass, vocals.. ok, everything, lol. Now I know if something doesn't sound right through this interface, I can assure it's badly mixed. Thanks again. Oh, what's a Tardis?
  2. Hey mate, I registered my 2i2 (first gen), and I can download 1 and 2 already, the other ones are not available, is that normal?
  3. If you try it let me know your thoughts? 😋🤣 I don't think I have even tried Freeamp yet, haha.
  4. If you're considering stepping up to REAMP, now is the right time to do it! Until 25 September you'll get 40% off REAMP if you use the code below: freeamp2reamp

    Waveform 10 Free

    FYI, Ravage vst3 doesn't load into Waveform either (you know, first time vst scan), lol, I am gonna delete that thing now... 😁

    Waveform 10 Free

    OMG it worked!?!?!?! Just installed now and activated, I don't know if I will like this DAW but free is free, right?
  7. I feel Toontrack doesn't know what intro price means
  8. No no, I mean this: I bought bassdude for 15 bucks (last week), and the seller gave me a voucher, so I didn't have to pay the fee. That worked perfect. Then another guy was giving away a voucher yesterday, and he gave it to me, but now I didn't know I could use only 1 voucher per month, so now that I know what I couldn't use this free voucher, I morally gave it back by now. Cheers.
  9. I think I know what's the issue now, lol: I bought bassdude this month at kvr, and the seller gave me a coupon/voucher so I didn't spend on the license transfer fee.
  10. I tried doing that, but I got this message " "A voucher code associated with this promotion has already been used. Only one redemption per account is allowed."" I now tried using my voucher with a different plugin and I still get that message, perhaps the code I was given was used by someone else?
  11. Yes, but then how Matthew Sorrels could get it for free? How could he use a 50 voucher too?
  12. How can you use 2 vouchers? I tried to no avail ;( I tried one extra someone gave to me (gift) and I get this "A voucher code associated with this promotion has already been used. Only one redemption per account is allowed."
  13. Don't trust reviews. Buy used, take pics, post them so we can tell you if it's garbage or not. Play the guitar yourself: mid finger on 2nd fret 5th string, ring finger on 2nd fret 4th string >>> Strum it like no tomorrow, let it ring, try to play "patterns". Do the same but now mid finger on 2nd fret 4th string, ring finger on 2nd fret 3rd string. Repeat above, but now for first example place index finger on 1st fret 3rd string, 2nd example on 1st fret 2nd string. Is it "loud"? if it doesn't have a good kinda loud sound, I would forget about it. Also I would try the aforementioned examples but just playing 1st example: just 6th and 5th strings, then 2nd example just 5th and 4th strings (they are called power chords). After you think you got the one: Play every fretted note of every string from 1st fret till last one (usually 20th?). Specially at frets 10th to 15th, if it has fret buzz... I would forget about it. 3mm in height at 12th fret (from top of fret to bottom of string) is a very adecuate action. Also: I'd recommend that if you bought new, that you went to the same store and play the same guitars every day for 1 hour, until it finally hits you which one you'd want. Then buy it used... haha.

    My Latest Deal

    Awesome, I always expect an acoustic guitar to be "loud". As a singer, I expect it to accompany me, and a soft/quiet one won't ever do the trick (I can go too loud), lol. Thanks for the mini review
  16. I had to come back and say that: I hope I didn't deter anyone from buying them. In my journey (I hate that) testing gear to see what was good or worked, I knew I needed new heaphones. So I got some AKG K240 Studio Mk II (I used to have the regular ones), and they turned out to be the worst headphones I had in my life (like 2000000% bright, brittle, harsh, no punch). Then I got a Tascam interface (I had/have a Uphoria Behringer 404HD), 16x08 because it was very cheap (16 ins) so I could record my drumset. It was a total nightmare (drivers wise) and well, my AKG headphones didn't sound any better. Then after the drivers nightmare got fixed (finally) I started hating Youtube videos a lot, because of their sound quality (this happened even before getting the new Tascam interface). Soooo, I bought these Beyerdynamic 990 DT Pro because the web glorified them (kinda). And even though they weren't as bright/brittle/harsh with no punch at all, my experience wasn't any better. After struggling with cables, connections, having bought a Yamaha receiver for my unused Yamaha NS244 monitors, I noticed that my Yamaha was distorting the output, or so I thought... Then it hit me: Maybe this interface is coloring the output (it doesn't help that a lot of Youtube audio content is bad, no matter the point of view, but bearable). So I took out my Uphoria interface from its box (was planning on selling it) and used with it my new heaphones (DT Pro). WTF is going on!!!! This world is crazy!!! My heaphones came alive, LITERALLY: Night and day! They weren't brittle, bright, harsh (ok maybe from 200000% from my AKG reference, and yes, the AKG were used first with my Uphoria, so they sck ballz still), but also got PUNCH, I didn't have to fight lows or low mids! I got convinced for a while because of my AKG and DT Pro (on the Tascam) that open heaphones were destined to be this way, but nope, these DT Pro's finally sounded amazing (in comparison to using them with my Tascam). So through my Yamaha receiver, I haven't heard them distorted, in fact, thanks to it I can EQ them a little bit down on the highs (-4), and still sound open not muddled as if I tried the same thing when using the Tascam interface. So, in summary: Tascam sckz ballz to the infinite (I have sworn before no never buy anything from them, but it was the cheapest option to record drums at the time), DT PRo rock, Yamaha NS244 rock (to an extent) and Uphoria interfaces are indeed really good (maybe not PRO PRO PRO but you get the point). All in all, it seems the signal chain does matter, but the fkced up situation is took me forever to find out... wasted lots of time (life) to find out... sigh... (DT Pros has allowed me to hear stuff I didn't hear before even on Youtube videos, I almost sold them, now no way they are leaving my desk :P) Cheers mates.

    Bias Amp LE FREE

    How much was it selling for? I mean, is this a bargain? ( I know, free is "always" a bargain) I mean, is this worth it?
  18. Awesome Enrique, thanks so much, hug?
  19. Forgot to come back and say thanks for your so kind gesture mate
  20. mail it to me please or something I have filled so many forms so far, lol, and unsubscribing to letters is annoying and time wasting
  21. The have these right now https://reverb.com/uk/software/instruments/sonivox/370-sonivox-session-drums-1 and blue jay for same price but says "coming soon", my guess is they are rotating these? Idk.
  22. Can you use these drivers so the interface is a general/global audio player, and if you open your DAW it won't hesitate to NOT keep audio to itself, then quitting your DAW, and not hesitating to "release" the asio drivers: in other words, as long as you have your global/general audio Windows 10 settings the same as your projects (let's say 44 khz) if you open your DAW or close it while watching youtube audio doesn't crack or anything, is just one big audio environment? I have a TASCAM 16x08 and those guys took forever to nail the drivers but they are 99% there, but if these drivers worked 100% great, then... awesome... thanks.
  23. I bought the 2i2 Scarlett 1st gen... never again I will buy anything Focusrite again... ever never
