But you COULD have. See what I'm getting at? You had a chance to pull my pants down. A chance to make a fool of me. Unfortunately that chance has come and gone. Now no one will know a world in which Quarl was utterly and completely humiliated by a young man named Remorph. I forsake this existence because life has lost all meaning. I will throw myself off a cliff and as I fall I'll scream out your name only to hear the whisper of wind dragging through my hair. When my body hits the rocks below, each bone that breaks will symbolize the bond that we once had shattering into a million fragments. You had your chance Remorph. It is gone now. Your life will go on but you'll always look back on this moment with somber regret. The joy we could have shared. The life we could have carved out together.

Remorph... I... I'm pregnant.

That's a hell of a way to avoid your responsibility as a father. I'll write that one down for the next time I impregnate someone by accident.

Nice man!

You running a sub with those? If you arent and need one, I'd suggest either the yamaha hs10w for 400 bucks, or the better of the two adam subs for like 1250 bucks.

Either way I love the Adams, they are workhorses. Good for long nights in the studio with those ribbon tweeters.

Unfortunately, I'm running them without a sub but I may look for one in the future.
Sound-wise in general, loving them so far though!

So those ADAM's I have bought are still performing extremely well, just that they are too loud to really have my makeshift studio in my bedroom now (neighbors on the other side of my wall, I live in a semi-detached property). I'm going to be moving my whole rig downstairs into the storage room (which is a big room full of PA & mixing equipment that my dad and brother bought between them over a period of a year or so). It's a great excuse to rig all of that up with the extra vocal microphones and the effect/eq hardware rack units just for shits and giggles when I move my rig downstairs tomorrow.

I'll promise to take pretty pictures.

I think it's this: the sound from the headphones is more closer to your ears so nothing else can interfere when you hear the sound. So maybe something is interfering with your ears when using moniters for an extended amount of time.... or something like that haha

I don't know, don't listen to me O: xD

It might have something to do with the space your in. With the monitors, the sound is filling the entire room and bouncing off of shit. With headphones ITS IN YO FIGGIN HEAD. OLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! :D :D :D

Your PSU is unnecessary expensive for whatever power you will be drawing. I'd go for something smaller like a 750W Corsair Builder Series (Modular) instead, plus it will save you money. Same with your case really, you can get good looking Full-towers which are half the price and are exactly the same size (I'd personally recommend looking at either a Fractal Design Define XL R2 or a BitFenix Shinobi XL if you want to save some more cash unless the look of the tower is very important to you).

Your general setup is pretty damn decent overall, that 4930k is going to absolutely curb-stomp anything which is thrown at it. With 64GB of Quad Channel RAM aswell, I would be very interested in how much of that you could use up in one of your compositions (usually, I only see people with 64GB+ working with Virtual Machines alot of the time).

Apologies about the double post but from what I said yesterday about moving my equipment downstairs and rigging some of the PA & Rack stuff up, I've pretty much finished the move (with the addition of two extra Microphones, a 24-Channel USB Mixer and EQ, Compression and FX modules in a rack-on-wheels to use)

PIC 1: Here! - The General Setup
PIC 2: Here! - The Mic Setup
PIC 3: Here! - The Mixer & Modules in the Rack
PIC 4: Here! - Desk with my ADAM A5X's Rigged up

Biggest benefit, no neighbours near this side of the house! Plus I now have enough room to make some wooden frames up and mount some big Acoustic Tiles to them (at the end of the month when I get paid to be able to do nice things like that).

Not a single one. Nope. Drum and Bass stopped being cool in the late 90's when it started getting mainstream. Too mainstream. Drum and bass is for people that like jerks such as Bass Hunter and Skrillex.

This post is 100% serious. 4 serious. Seriously.
