The third time our M1 failed, I called TC to inquire about out of warranty repair.  Tech told me it was well over $100 flat rate repair.  I threw it straight into the trash.  Thank you.  Finished with M1's.  They don't even wound very good when they DO work.

Many may disagree with me; but I really don't like the KT Square One.

No solution that tries to cram that much control into that little space will be successful. While the KT Square One does at least have the advantage over the Presonus ACP88 in that it works reliably, it also has some totally incomprehensible controls. Why waste the space for all that silly shit when you could have given me a larger threshold knob, or maybe some silkscreening that made sense?

Just one piece of gear not "digital consoles" or "all ###inger."


For me it's the Alesis 3630 comp that pumps like Swartzenegger at an all night gym. Just the site of one makes me want to unplug it and set fire to it and dance around like Nero.

The MEQ is pretty bad too.  



The last one that needed an 'inshow' reboot!

Beta58.  When I see one being used for vocals, I cringe. I would rather hear vocals through a SM57... Rolling Eyes

+1 for the TC M-ONE also. Mine is headed for the trashcan as well. My display looks just like the pictures John put up. Only ours work fine for system setup, soundcheck, etc. It only stops working in the middle of a show!!! TC......Bite me.........

The Dean Markley guitar pickup. Especially when it seems like the majority are placed into wonderful sounding high dollar guitars. Instant shit filter.

Yamaha GA series mixers.  So lame, especially compared to Yamaha's normal trademark durability.

My Beyer M88.  I've been carrying it around for 20 years, just because every once in a while somebody asks for it.  As a kick drum mic.

And it does sound great as a kick drum mic.  Right up until you move it 3mm too close to the beater, then it gets $400 worth of quiet.  

So I have one. But I won't use it. And I don't want to sell it.

I hate it.
