For this week, we have a great MultiFX unti suitable for many many different purposes, signed by Alesis, and ofc - very affordable! biggrin.gif Very nice multiFX unit for live usage as well, having the bypass switch option! smile.gif

Alesis NanoVerb 2 (price ~95$ @ 3.12.2011)




The Alesis NanoVerb 2 isn't just about reverb. With 16 different effects programs, each with 16 variations of that program, you'll find a total of 256 effects algorithms to work with! These are brand new stereo effects that take advantage of the NanoVerb 2's 52-bit signal processing for a new standard in sonic quality.

The NanoVerb 2 makes access to all those effects programs, with just two knobs to select effect type and algorithm. Input and Output controls give you control of your signal pre- and post-effects, while the Mix control lets you dial in the perfect amount of effect. Simple operation makes the NanoVerb 2 equally suited for studio or live effects processing - and once you hear these effects, you'll want to use it everywhere!

Lush reverbs, ambient delays, swirly rotary speakers... all these effects and more can be found in the NanoVerb 2. With its simple design yet powerful effects processing, the NanoVerb 2 must be heard to be appreciated. Alesis has created another legendary multi-effects processor with the NanoVerb 2!

Alesis NanoVerb 2 Features at a Glance:

256 effects cover reverb, delay, and modulation
Small, durable design makes it an ideal effects processor for your live rig
52-bit DSP for a new level of audio clarity and depth
Front-panel indicator lights let you know at a glance if your signal is clipping
Footswitch input for hands-free bypass!

Today we have an eye-catcher from PRS with a vintage vibe and extremely good price:

Paul Reed Smith SE Hollowbody Ltd (~900$)



A real looker
The PRS SE Hollowbody Ltd is a real looker! Let's take a look at the top: Red Sparkle, for catching eyes onstage. Then, your eyes will likely be drawn to those famous PRS bird inlays that adorn the ebony fretboard. The bound headstock gives a classy touch to this already unique guitar. And one other cool appointment not found on any SE model - a Bigsby tailpiece.

Vintage modern vibe
Bringing a new spin to the PRS SE line the SE Hollowbody Ltd combines the vibe of the old world with the modern touches of today. For starters, the Bigsby tremolo gives a cool, smooth old school feel while the locking tuners ensure tuning stability not possible decades ago. The chambered, semi-hollowbody body offers warm tones not found in solidbody guitars while the SE Hollowbody Ltd pickups dish out killer tones from clean to scream.

PRS quality
All Paul Reed Smith guitars are designed for top-notch performance, right out of the case and the SE Hollowbody Ltd is no exception. Constructed from top-notch tonewoods and components, PRS instruments carry on a commitment to quality that's been the brand's hallmark since 1985, when Paul Reed Smith himself started hand-building guitars for some of the most elite players in the world.

Here's something expensive, but affordable if you can afford it! smile.gif Building a studio from hand-picked components that fit very well with each other. Excellent choice of gear packaged for affordable price:

(~14000$)

A Complete PC-based Music Production Studio!
Bundle up and Save! This complete Pro Tools HD system gives you everything you need for recording and saves you money!

Package Contains:

Sweetwater Creation Station 450 64-bit computer
Viewsonic 24" video monitor
Avid Pro Tools Native Core system
Avid HD Omni interface
Universal Audio UAD-2 Quad Flexi plug-in accelerator
Focal CMS 65 monitors
Focal CMS subwoofer
Avid Artist Mix control surface
Glyph GTO50 1TB hard drive
15' Pro Co DB25-XLRM Snake
2 x 20' Pro Co XLR Cables



Produce like a pro! The Sweetwater-exclusive Pro Studio HD Bundle gives you everything you need to record, edit, and mix pro-quality audio. If you're looking for the perfect studio package to take you from hobbyist/semi-pro to the majors, this is it. The Pro Studio HD Bundle is also great if you need to add an editing suite to the studio you already have. Everything in the Sweetwater Pro Studio HD Bundle is 100% professional-caliber gear, the same proven equipment used by some of today's best engineers to produce hit records. Check it out!

It all starts with the Sweetwater Custom Computing Creation Station Rack XT, 64-bit desktop computer. If you're not already familiar with Creation Station PCs, you're in for a treat. One of the only computers ever to be featured in TapeOp, Creation Stations prove that PCs are great for recording. This 2.8GHz Core i7 processor with 6GB of RAM more than lives up to the hype. A gorgeous 1920 x 1080 Samsung B2430H 24" widescreen LCD computer monitor makes navigating your sessions easy. And when it comes to recording space, you're totally set. You get 500GB and 1TB internal hard drive, plus a Glyph GT 050Q 1TB, 7,200rpm external hard drive to keep your sessions portable.

But there's more to this PC setup than just a great computer. Your custom Creation Station Rack XT comes with serious horsepower under the hood. First, there's the Avid Pro Tools|HD Native Core 64-channel PCIe interface card - which gives you the recording flexibility and ultra-low-latency of Pro Tools|HD. And to go with this amazing I/O card, you get one of Avid's recording workhorses, the HD OMNI audio interface. This beast gives you a pair of Avid's incredible microphone preamps, plus a huge selection of analog and digital I/O.

The power of Pro Tools|HD is absolutely staggering to begin with, and when you add the Universal Audio UAD-2 Quad Flexi bundle. This DSP card is a serious upgrade to any native system, adding the brute strength of 4 Analog Devices SHARC Chips to power some of the best-sounding plug-ins ever made. Speaking of which, the UAD-2 Quad Flexi bundle comes not only with UA's seven Mix Essentials II plug-ins, but it also includes a $500 UAD-powered plug-in bundle that you can use to exactly the plug-ins you want.

On the flip side of the Sweetwater Pro Studio HD Bundle, there's a Euphonix Artist Mix control surface. This great-feeling compact control surface puts 8 pro-quality touch-sensitive motorized faders. It also puts rotary encoders and programmable buttons at your finger tips - perfect for getting hands-on control of your sessions!

When it comes to monitoring, you'd be hard pressed to find a better setup than the 2.1 Focal monitor setup included with the Pro Studio HD Bundle. This amazing monitor rig includes a pair of 6.5" Focal CMS 65 active studio monitors, plus an 11" CMS SUB. Together, these speakers let you hear into the very depth of your music, letting you create mixes that translate perfectly onto any sound system.

Last but not least, here's one of the best parts about buying the Pro Studio HD Bundle from Sweetwater: we put it all together for you. That's right, software installations, cabling, the whole works - all installed and ready to go. Add to that our exclusive 2-year warranty and unbeatable service, and you're getting more than just a great deal on a ton of gear, you're getting a complete music production system you can count on.

Sweetwater Custom Computing Creation Station Rack XT 64-bit desktop computer with 2.8GHz Core i7 processor, 6GB RAM, and 500GB and 1TB hard drives

That is a KILLER Deal! These are the same stands I use in my studio and I paid quite a bit more for them. The adjustable top
can fit nearly any near field speaker, (I have my KRK Rockit 6 pair that weigh quite a bit on them) and the bottoms come to fine points to help isolate the sound. In short, these things RAWK!
