Re: policies on vax or non-vax

Now that we have a Delta variant, which seems more infectious, and the current vaccines are slightly less effective against it, I will continue with the masks and social distancing. I am fully vaccinated, and my family is in process, but to me it is more important that we all get out of the woods to...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Picked up a pair of Neumann NDH20 headphones because I have some sessions coming up where I won't have a dedicated control room for monitoring, and my current reference pair are open-backed (ath-r70x... amazing). I don't know if there is something wrong with them or what, but man, they do not sound...

Re: Problems with Mac Mini and Logic

Try running this: https://titanium-software.fr/en/onyx.html Also, maybe the PERMISSIONS for that IR file are wrong. Do you know how to change that? Press command+ i to get the file info pane, and at the bottom you can change permissions. Also, what drive are your IRs in? and your audio project? Are ...

Re: Audio & MIDI in the same snake?

One unsubstantiated thing I found on an unfamiliar forum, but plausible: …<bill & ted voice>… woah. Yeah, that’s fascinating, but I’m unlikely to try and marry them together in the same balanced line. (Which, is what it sounds like they claim to have done there) I’m gonna pigtail it with midi ends ...

Re: Audio & MIDI in the same snake?

This is EXACTLY how a portal to another dimension was opened a long time ago. LOL, actually if you want to do this, just make sure to label the MIDI connectors properly, if you do end up using 3 pin xlrs. I recommend you actually use MIDI DIN connectors for the MIDI and not risk damaging a MIDI port...

Re: Pro Tools 2021 unstable on new Mac Pro

Hi Theo, The issue you are most likely encountering is this: The New Pro Tools and computer are trying to translate your old sessions. Here is how to fix this: 1. Use a new audio only hard drive for new PT sessions going forward. Keep the old stuff as "read only". Those older drives may be part of y...

Re: new problem with ilok

Some suggestions: 1. Re boot the computer, including any har har hardware, especially if you have several USB things connected. 2. Clean the USB iLok connector, and where it plugs into your USB chain. 3. Reinstall the iLok License Manager software, and then reboot the computer. 4. Lastly, reinstall ...

Re: Mentoring and Giving Mix Feedback

On the subject of camera mic distortion, pretty sure this is the last word: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_jvLvfebqM Opinions may vary but I find this hilarious to listen to. I'm barely in this but that's young(er) me on the SG. Yep. won't be long before someone makes a plug in that does this. L...

Re: Mentoring and Giving Mix Feedback

When I am asked for my opinion, I usually ask them what they don't like about what they did.

I do try to keep it to one or two items. And then try to keep the explanation / advice to the most bare minimum and easy to understand.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

My story is similar to both of yours. Decesed church organist's family selling an M3 before they moved. $50 out the door. I'm about due to for an oiling. I have a Leslie 147 and a combo preamp to pair it with. Total prized possessions for me. Remember to use the "official" oil. Here: http://www.ton...
