Also: That last post was * absolutely not * intended to sound like some sort of indictment regarding responses to my explosion. In other news, I went to Micro Center, and the first person I talked to in the DIY PC department actually knew a lot about DAWs. I ended up buying a Corsair RM750 for the P...

First off, some apologies. 1. My behavior was absolutely in the wrong. I can make excuses relating to personal triggers, but they're still pretty useless. And, really, in the end, they don't matter. 2. Yes. There was no need for Ad-Hominem attacks, although I feel that there are situations in life w...

Talk to the Google (puts up hand).

"Would anyone like to share some PC PSU experience or advise?" Was that really worth your time? I've spent time Googling it. It's about as funny as saying "buy a Mac". I suppose I could go listen to the sounds of case fans on Google for 6 hours. (Where is that, "Google DAW Review Sounds"? Maybe they...

Quiet PSU on a budget? Suggested wattage?

Greetings! Would anyone like to share some PC PSU experience or advise? I'm putting together a new DAW, and I'm looking for advise on people's experiences with current PSU options. I can't find a good way to tell what's quiet and what isn't. I'd rather not guess blindly. I recently salvaged a pretty...

PT LE 8 and vanishing waves

Good day.

I'm baffled, here. I'm using PT 8.1, and I cannot tweak it such that regions won't disappear when I drag them.

This does not aid in lining things up.

I just switched up from LE 7. I'm assuming this is user error.

Alright, last pass got it. No idea what changed. I went back and tried it again a few hours ago, and it cleaned up as I was listening to it. I kept rolling anyway, just in case. By the time I got to the end of the tape, it was OK. So, I flipped the reels and recorded them all again backwards. The fi...

Well, I sent Mr. Ciletti an email.

Thanks for the advice, folks!

Tony- I only baked it once. Sorry about the confusion.

Alright. Well, no point crying now. The damage is done. I read a few articles, one of which said the flipping was neccesary. When I did my own a few years ago, I'd flip them every hour or so. It seemed to work then. I apparently misunderstood Mr. Ciletti's article. I wondered why the heck you'd spoo...

Tape baking issue- is this the right forum? Hrm.

Howdy! I'm working on digitizing an 8-track 1/2" reel for someone.It was recorded in 1992 ion Ampex 406. I've baked quite a few tapes now, with quite a bit of success. This time, it just isn't working. I cannot stop the tape from peeling and shedding, and it's BAD. He knew this could be an issue, an...

Hi, all! I want to build a line-level trigger that can perform simple momentary switch operation. audio out-->trigger level reached---> contact is made, triggering asso. devices. An example: My Oberheim DMX drum machine has individual outs for each voice. It's great to run it through the filter on m...

mic stand holder

How about a large rectangular box against the wall? You could run a slotted 1*10 across the top long-ways with some vertical braces (4*4?) going from the shelf to the ground; this would provide upside down storage for cast iron-based stands. We had a locking panel for a door. This solution is likely...

When they work they are OK at best. Nothing as amazing as a Space Echo. Aren't those the Eddie Van Halen "Eruption" echo? There's a fine example of their dubious quality. However, they can feedback (if it's that one) and they can do real time tape-based pitch dives (again, if it's the same model), ...
