Yes, as soon as you get a bit recognised, and get some money, it seems de rigueur.
I could go for that, no more having to buy stuff, deal with music shops, technical problems etc, worth paying for a PA definitely.

A term of affection we used to use over here many years ago was Bumboy.
Is that not PC anymore?

I’m talking about someone who actually knows how to do stuff, in a way I don’t, someone who can bring something to the table creatively not just run errands and do,paperwork. Someone who can make something happen, an idea I have I don’t know how make reality, they would know technically, how to make it possible.

Yup, Bumboy or Bumgirl.
Generally smarter than the person that employs them, up on the latest tech, can solder with one hand while rewiring the studio with the other so it’s better, while archiving every single patch for hardware with diagrams with the other while they tell you to make your own effing tea! And that’s just a start to their abilities.

There is no way I’d let someone make my coffee, or clean up my mess, but I’d be very happy to let them solder, set-up gear and go and buy stuff. All things I hate.

Back to reverbs, I’ve ordered a 2016 rack, thanks for all the offers and help, but it sounds like it will be perfect for what I need, hardware, knobs, dead easy to,use, and a very flexible sound, from straight to wild.

Great choice. I've been using the 2016 plugin since the Princeton Digital days, which I later upgraded to vst Eventide SP2016 Reverb. I've also previously hired a SP2016 (the old black hardware version) for an album mix down. It's a very nice reverb to work with - enjoy!

Yes, it’s well regarded, some things are right first time round, no matter what the technology used, and they never get improved on, like my Lexicon 224 they become classics.

Thanks, but I just can’t be bothered, just for a free trial.

Hi Tony! FWIW I got the 2016 room trial & it doesnt really give you much of an idea of what the rest of the plugin is going to be like. Frankly I dont find myself reaching for it too often, but then I have a bunch of other plugins that do the job well & I alerady know how they work... sometimes it isnt worth laving to learn a whole bunch of new swtuff in the hope that a plugin may have hidden depths that you can use..

Hi, I’ve ordered the Princeton 2016, I’m happy it’s going to be fine, long delivery time though.
I just don’t feel easy about using software lately, I still buy CD's for that solid, I actually own something that won’t go away feeling,
