I think I got skipped for issue 80. Good impetus to sign up for a first class subscription - hopefully future problem is solved :)

fwiw, the firepod comes with cubase le (which is fine for just basic tracking and whatnot).

Re: Pacific Pro Audio Ribbon Group Buy Instructions

I'm all for the -2 version. It's not like it would be hard to remove the attached cord and replace it with a pigtail or something.

Re: which mic pres don't clip?

I would guess that the earthworks pre would be hard to clip (although I've never used one, so I can't say for sure):

Re: Big cavernous live room treatment (with pictures)

There is a lot of good info here: http://www.realtraps.com/

Aurelex folks will tell you differently, but it seems the concensus is that ethan's traps are the bomb, and very good deal (although not exactly inexpensive...)

Re: Alternatives to NewEgg

The website isn't as easy to navigate, but zipzoomfly.com (formerly googlegear) is now my vendor of choice.

CDW seems to have some damn good prices lately too...

Re: newbie with mic overheads question..

maybe when the drummer goes crazy you are overloading the mics? You could try using a -10db pad to see if that helps for the more intense parts...

Re: Transferring MiniDisc to PC. How?

My md player lacks a digital output, so I just use the line out into my soundcard. I'm sure I'm losing a bit to the additional da/ad conversion, but for my uses I'll never notice.

Re: Audio Interface for Notebook running Win XP

I really like echo's stuff (I've got a layla24). RME makes a pcmcia adapter for their stuff. As for firewire, the motu 828mk2 looks like a good deal.

This guitar cable (Alessandro Instrument Pro) always used to piss me off:
