Imaginary Worlds (chip, acoustic guitar, synth, etc.)

I've been trying to get a pretty organic-sounding chip + acoustic guitar sound.  I'm pretty pleased.  It's LSDJ, acoustic guitar, Juno-60, and tambourine.

Thanks for the detailed answer! From what I've read it seems like a low-cost but good quality setup. Gives me some food for thought. Thanks again and keep rockin' roboctopus.

Thanks!  My recording setup is low-budget, but I'm pretty happy with the results I get.  I don't have a dedicated preamp.  I use a little Behringer Xenyx 1202 mixer.  I've had two Behringer mixers over the years and have been happy with both.  They have phantom power, which my condenser mics need.  Most of my live audio is recorded with a couple of MXL 990 condenser mics.  They're cheap but quiet and sound really clear.  I run the mixer through a Behringer Composer Pro unit--it's basically a compressor/expander--then straight into the sound card.  The expander is useful for raising the noise floor--super handy for home recording to tamp down on background noise! 

Dunno if any of that is helpful for you, haha.

Awesome job roboctopus. I can definitely hear an improvement in your mixing of gameboy and traditional instruments. The speech samples were a strange but fitting. By the way, what kind of recording setup are you using? I've been thinking about recording and am looking for a good preamp. Any suggestions?

nice blend. everything sits really well together.
