Maximizing the RAM will definitely help, but you might need an upgraded CPU to beat the processor crunch. I upgraded a Dell Optiplex GX260 P4 2.0 GHZ to 3.2 GHZ through powerleap.com. (b3groover's point is well taken, I think my upgraded CPU had faster cache and FSB as well, though I don't remember ...

The best thing would probably be to export identical-length .WAV files of individual instrument tracks (preferably out of your old PC) and open them in whatever Mac-based DAW you're using now to finish the song. If you need to use Windows on a Mac for audio apps, I'd go with Boot Camp instead of Par...

I've opened Pro Tools Free sessions (based on 5.1) in OS9 into Pro Tools 7 LE on OSX with no problems, just by clicking on the project file. I would just make sure if you're using any plug-ins (Waves etc.) in the 5.1 that you have a versions installed on the 6.? system. Also (common sense territory)...

1. obsess about beats and tweaking noises
2. come up with a series of kickass patterns
3. realize there's supposed to be a "song" in there somewhere and cobble pieces together with rationalized-after-the-fact segues

Reviving an old thread rather than starting a new one as it's all parts of the same pig... I attempted to master some songs for 7" vinyl. 4 songs, 2 on each side, just under 6 minutes on each side. Here's a comparison of the original mix for one of the songs and the test pressing I got back from the...

Unfortunately, now a few third-party apps (Reason, Guru, RTAS to VST Wrapper) are no longer showing up. I've tried a total uninstall and re-install of GURU and the Wrapper, to no avail. Any tips there? Could repairing permissions in Disc Utility help? Make sure you're really getting rid of everythi...

Only had a chance to listen to the first 3 mixes...I see what you're saying about balancing a lot of acoustic instruments in the first song especially. People have already suggested giving each instrument its own EQ range and I second that...You could also try bringing the levels of instruments up a...

I traded in my NS-10s for RP-5s because I couldn't deal with the lack of low frequencies.

I have been amazed at how good the small, older tannoys are... like the PBM series, and also the smaller KRK's...

Well you could either go through the repair guys again, or just re-archive and install yourself...it's a semi-easy process and there's lots of google-able manuals on how to do it.
