Re: New Audio Interface Recommendations (reply)
MOTU has a number of units that are very good. The mc pres are considered to be better than the Scarlett. There is a new Scarlett series, supposedly with better mic preamps but I have not read any comparisons yet.

Mine's a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 - two inputs, 48v phantom power, monitoring. Works fine, not too expensive. Like you, I use Reaper on a PC with Win 10. https://us.focusrite.com/usb-audio-interfaces/scarlett-2i2

New Audio Interface Recommendations (topic)
I need to replace my  M-Audio Fast Track Pro, that I purchased several years ago.  Somehow, the tip of a headphone jack broke off in the headphone input  and I can't get it out.  Since when do jacks break?   Anyway, it was probably about...

Re: Thoughts on the KLR Baggs Lyric mic/pickup? (reply)
My experience was not so pleasant. Compared to my K&K, the Lyric had feedback issues at only a fraction of the the K&K's volume. If I could run the K&K at, 12:00 volume setting, I hade to put the Lyric at 3:00 to get anything...

Got in the DAO 4099 double cable today. The Micro-dot mic cable part is much more hefty and less flexible than the standard 4099 cable. The cable itself is still plenty thinner than any standard cable. The jacket is thin- it's the extra...

Re: Thoughts on the KLR Baggs Lyric mic/pickup? (reply)
I put a lyric in my D28A 1937. I really like it. I did end up getting a Venue DI to use with it, and these made for a perfect combo. Here's the thread of my experience....

Well, I'll be. That newer adapter made a world of difference – not only does it work better, the signal is clearer. It has made my DPA/Headway combination much more enjoyable to work with, as well. Kev, you have been amazingly generous...

Re: Thoughts on the KLR Baggs Lyric mic/pickup? (reply)
The Lyric is basically a microphone that's mounted inside the guitar, and tuned specifically for the frequencies generated by an acoustic guitar.  Properly installed, tweaked, and dialed in, it makes your guitar sound like a guitar is...

Thoughts on the KLR Baggs Lyric mic/pickup? (topic)
Thinking of adding a pickup to the D28A 1941, and wondered what forum members think of the Baggs Lyric?

It wasn't the cost of the Headway that was too much for me, Mark: it was the cost of the DPA!  However, I take your point that a DPA Double Cable would be less expensive for you than a Headway which itself requires additional cabling.The...

"I don't think this would apply in Mark's case anyway, since he would presumably be wearing the Headway on his belt and therefore plugging the adapter straight in without the need for an extension cable." Kev-- the jury is still out on...

Re: Bartlett Guitar Pick up (reply)
I have one but I only had a chance to use it once with my newgrass quartet before the band broke up.  I used it on my HD28V.  I was able to get more volume before feedback with it than with any other external or clip on mic I've tried....

Re: Bartlett Guitar Pick up (reply)
I have one and it does a very good job of getting the sound of my guitar out without it sounding "electric". It clips on the sound hole and the mic is inside and the cord runs along the neck an out of the way. There are two models, lo...

Re: Bartlett Guitar Pick up (reply)
If I read Bartlett's website correctly, it's not a 'pickup' it's a clip-on microphone? If so, perhaps the misleading title of the OP needs changing? Also, shouldn't this be in the 'Sound Reinforcement and Recording' section of the forum?

I didn't mean to suggest that the adaptor is definitely the culprit, Paul, just that it's previously been the subject of doubt and uncertainty as in this AGF thread and elsewhere on the internet. Some people do seem to have had problems...

Re: Bartlett Guitar Pick up (reply)
A number of years ago I was listening to a video of Alasdair Fraser and noticed he had a wire coming off his fiddle.  I've never been a fan of fiddle pickups as they all make a fiddle sound electrified, but this sounded amazingly clean...

Good point, Kev, and thank you. When I emailed DPA about it, they never told me about the newer version of the adapter; perhaps it wasn't available then. Mine does not have the "12v - 48v" lettering on it. Just ordered the newer version.
