My First Blog

This is the first blog I am doing on Blogger. I was not intending to start my own blog. It happend by mistake. I was reading a blog about the Voyetra 8 by Octave Plataeu. Voyetra 8 was a 1980's synth that I used to dream about because I knew Dave Stewart from Eurythmics used it and I heard it was used on the Eurythmics 1984 albumn which has some unique synthy sounds on it.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Vic Stathopoulos and I am a songwriter, singer, Mixer/Master Engineer, Producer and Web Master. I have music on Myspace. I also feature on Facebook and Twitter.

Metric Halo ULN-2

Recently I decided I needed a new audio interface. My old one is the white Focusrite Saffire. I bought it in 2007 and it has served its purpose. I like the sound of the recordings, but I think the digital to analogue converters don't sound great. I think the converters in my mac sound better.

After doing alot of research online I have decided to go for the ULN-2. It is a 2 channel audio interface and its suppose to have really great preamps (better than Metric Halo 2882). So I went for that. My mind has been niggling me that I should have gone for 8 channel version (2882), but it lacks preamps and controls on the front panel. Hopefully the ULN-2 will arrive tomorrow.

If you want to here my music and access my other sites you can do it from the Vic Stathopoulos:

On this site you will also find info on Greece and some of the things I am interested in.

Anyway thats it folks for my first Blogger Blog.
