Announcing The Recording Gear Quiz

Brandon Drury —  July 16, 2008

I’ve been hard at work on a variation of the “shootout”. I thought it would be more fun to put you and your ears to the test to see if you really think that high end gear is worth the price of admission. I see way too many beginners putting way too much stock into high end gear when they don’t even have the fundamentals down yet.

In this quiz you can hear the following signal paths at work:
Royer R121 > Presonus Firestudio
Shure SM57 > Presonus Firestudio
Royer R121 > Vintech 1272 > Mytek AD96
Shure SM57 > Vintech 1272 > Mytek AD96
Royer R121 > Vintech 1272 > Mytek AD96 > Distressor EL-8X
Royer R121 > Trident S20 > Mytek AD96
Shure SM57 > Trident S20 > Mytek AD96
Royer R121 > M-Audio Octane
Shure SM57 > M-Audio Octane

You get the idea. Check it out.
