Well, I have been lucky enough to be chosen as the winner in a draw for a -
Behringer Ultra-Voice Digital VX2496 Microphone PreampThis is pretty awesome.
It came as a surprise, because I nominated Shane for this prize on the Canadian Podcast Buffet last week. If you nominated a podcaster on canadapodcasts.ca, you yourself were entered into a random draw for a second Behringer.
Barry from Barrie Podshow was the winner of the nominated podcasters, and I was the winner of the Horseshow Up My Butt draw.
This thing apparantly can do a bunch of great stuff, and I look forward to using it with Shane on future shows and on future ideas.
If I can convince my wife, Jhoan, to do a show with me, this little beauty will be the gateway mechanism.
Thanks Mark and Bob at Canadian Podcast Buffet and special thanks to The National Arts Centre which I believe is located in Ottawa. These Ottawans are responsible for the giveaway in the first place.
If you're a sound-tech nerd, read the following:
"The Behringer Ultra-Voice Digital VX2496 is a high-quality mic preamp and voice processor that features an AES/EBU output (digital output up to 24 bit/96 kHz), opto compressor, dynamic enhancer, expander, de-esser and tube simulation. If you are a recording musician, home/project studio owner, or work primarily in the digital domain and need to record vocals into a digital system, this is your machine. Key features include a 24-bit/96 kHz AES/EBU output with selectable sampling rates or external clocking. The Ultra-Voice has a discrete ULN mic/line input stage with soft mute +48V phantom power. Authentic tube emulation circuitry provides for typical tube and tape saturation sounds, and there is a true RMS expander for smooth noise reduction. An opto-compressor provides inaudible dynamic control and creative signal processing options. A voice-optimized equalizer was specially designed for voice enhancement."
