Indeed, it is a pop masterpiece. Men Without Hats is one of those underrated bands that sadly got pinned for their one global hit, Safety Dance. From what I've read, this was the result of bad management and shady record contracts and everything happening way too fast for them, yet they have so many...

I like Logic 9. Although i always thought that Amp Sims are just extra. I would pay the upgrade price for the Bounce in Place, Project Export -feature and External FX things alone :). + 1 Bounce In Place has been my most used feature thus far since 9. Logic Amp sims, very good, very usable. If you ...

Repairing your disk permissions wouldn't hurt either, I do this once a week.
First, empty you trash bin, the from the finder menu-->go-->utilities-->disk utility-->select your startup drive and repair permissions. Do a restart. It's like giving your mac some prune juice.

Reason can sound incredible, it's all in how you use it, knowing it's limitations and being realistic about what it can and can't achieve is key.

G-Force's Mellotron Pro and Virtual String Machine.
Both excellent, worth every penny.

I think you should re-evaluate your setup and find the weakest link, which, imo, wouldn't be the Duet. Mics, pres, room acoustics, monitors, and...ahem...gain staging (an area surprisingly overlooked in the 'my digital recordings don't sound as good as the cd I'm referencing it to" queries). The Due...

A friend just warned me about a few things with this update, something to consider...
Apparently, no more bouncing direct to mp3 and no bouncing direct to a QT movie.
A strange omission but thought I'd let you know.
I won't be upgrading mine for a while, just passing the info.

I'm not sure how the 600 sounds but I had a Soundcraft 400B for a while and I can tell you it was a fine, fine board. That said, I had no prior experience with any other console other then a basic Mackie but the pres and eq's were quite a step up from the latter. I also bought it used and like other...

I'm in the 'aspiring' group, but I do it every day, at home, because I love it.
I'm also in Brooklyn, and if I can contribute something and help you, well, it may even help me make better recordings for it.

I also have the H4, been using for 2 years.
The best part of it is, it's also a recording interface when you need it, ie: travel, etc.
I've done some great bass and acoustic guitar recordings while in Paris, going through the H4 directly into Ableton Live, all in 24bit/44.1. Sounded incredible.

I have one of those, it's fantastic.
Ironically, I just sold my DL-4 as I didn't want both anymore, having an analog Memory Man as well, but kept this blue MM.
