i think everybody who has Valhalla Vintage Verb would agree that it is the best 50 dollars you can spend on a plugin. i use it somewhere on everything it is so good and so versatile. And easy to use.

seriously though - if you are drunk when you are jamming, something like this would be a lot easier that dealing with a bunch of individual pieces of gear and software.

recording/band project in or around Montclair NJ

Hey. So I'm an ex-brooklynite dad who moved to the burbs for some space, outdoor grilling, and peace and quiet on the weekends. I played out occasionally and recorded with friends when I lived in the city - looking to maybe do that again with 1 or 2 like-minded individuals. I've got enough gear to r...

Both spindles and some knobs serious...

I guess I could evaluate and return. I need to settle on something new with USB in any event as my next comp will not have FireWire. I know the RME route would be good but the Audient is half the price and doesn't have all the excess io I dont need. Are RME and Audient pres and or AD comparable?

Trick fall, to your original question. I def go with logic over dp. But that said... Just give tracktion 5 a spin. I've been using it and 4 before it. The original developers took it back from Mackie and rewrote it from the ground up. One of the most intuitive daws out there (if you aren't going for...

Upgrading from MOTU Ultralite to Audient iD22 - worth it?

I'm finally ready to move past my trusty original Ultralite. Has this thing since day one but I find it pretty whimpy. I've narrowed down options to the audient id22. I don't need more than 2 analog inputs, and I can always expand via ADAT. Feature-wise it seems right on. I like the inserts, and als...

I'd steer clear of both if those honestly. Logic is porky designed workflow, dark and fussy. For like 50 bucks you can get Tracktion or Reaper which are great for live tracking IMO. Hell you can track with reaper for free as you evaluate it. I found it is great for live tracking, not so great for mi...

Kurt Vile was originally in The War On Drugs for their first album Wagonwheel Blues which I also recommend highly. The guitar and synth tones on this record are just classic, already. I'm in pain this record sounds so good (vinyl, pair of grado 60s). This is a goddamn masterpiece. Dylan, Dire Strait...

let's forget for a moment that the majority of people on earth believe that a high quality 256 mp3 from amazon or iTunes equivalent sounds amazing and better than CDs. Because this is true. You simply do not have a significant number of people out there thinking for a moment that high quality mp3s a...
