So like everyone else here I am always looking at the newest/coolest/better things and sometimes forget about the oldies that I have in my collection. It has me thinking about the old s... um stuff that I keep using from my old basses to the old effects that I just cannot seem to get away from. I am not one of those vintage hardheads and really do appreciate and use updated technology but sometimes the old ways are better ways. Okay so maybe this is all a sign of my age (old) but I would really like to not think that is truly the case. Case in point these last few days have been digging into the old Digitech BP8, as that is the preferred unit of some tone snobs i am about to start a new project with. Those sounds are really very good, tube preamp, excellent compressors, very useful EQ, studio quality reverbs and delays and while the mods are a bit limited they all have a great sound and character. Other than the size, unusual power supply and decrepit age it is really still a very good unit. In the studio i find myself turning to the old ART MultiFX LT, Yamaha SPX90 and Rane, White and Ashly units over the digital plugins that are much handier.
