I'm not mad at that idea!

But the "tracking space" does sound pretty good. And if someone's trying to record more than just overdubs, I'd probably go somewhere else.

Lol!

The answer is simple: the Austin real estate market. :shock:

705 Scraps: what to do? (and other stuff)

So we bought a house and I'm in the process of finishing the bedroom that is doubling as control room, office, and storage for my clothing. I think I'm going to be doing mostly mixing and writing/arranging in this space (the living room has a nice high ceiling and sounds pretty good). Anyway, I've a...

Riiiiiight. Because the higher max input represents headroom between 0dbu and the point at which the input clips. Makes sense now.

Thanks guys.

Here's what's getting me, and it's probably really simple and I'm missing it, but I'm not sure how the math works outside of a system with a max input of 20dbu. I think I see how you got to 0dbu=-16dbfs (20-4 and then subtract from 0 to get -16). What if we're looking at the Symphony ADC, which can ...

So there is a correlation between voltage and binary? I thought that maybe I've had it wrong all these years, and maybe I do, but I don't think you can just take a number that applies to dbU and use it to manipulate the math as it applies to dbfs. Aren't the two exclusive without knowing how the man...

Apogee Duet Input Calibration

A friend just bought a Duet II and I thought I'd be helpful and look at the spec sheet for the input calibration. http://www.apogeedigital.com/products/duet2.php#specs No such. Max input = +20dbU. And an impedance measurement. So my math was never that great to begin with, but is there way to distil...

He already owns the hd. And maybe lack of options is a symptom of the lightpipe format growing long in the tooth.

Looks like the light bridge is out of production, though.

Currently reading this thread while streaming my iPad through one of those Bose Bluetooth thingies because we blew the breaker for the front lounge entertainment system. So yeah. Mono.

HD24>interface TBD>MacBook

A friend is asking me about this setup and I don't remember if the HD24 will let you monitor through the lightpipe outs. If it will, I'm thinking that this wouldn't be a bad way to go, given a good FireWire interface and possibly a master clock. Is this crazy? And if it's not crazy, I'm not seeing a...

I'll use FM instead of Aja. If there is any amount of hi-frequency hype in the system, you'll know immediately. And the guitar and sax leads tend to be good indicators of how bad the 1.6-ish-ness is.

I like either Morcheeba's Trigger Hipper or Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up to check out the subs.
