Thanks for the tip, but I'm specifically looking for one of those two units, if anyone has one for sale.

WTB Firestudio Lightpipe or Lightbridge

Boy, these things are hard to find. I'd prefer the Firestudio as my experiences with M Audio have proven glitchy. Hit me up if you have one you're looking to sell.

Hey there's a ton of gear I can't afford out there but I have to run my business based on smart decisions and what will start paying for itself right away.
A smart decision would be to abandon this idea altogether.

Well, we've had our share of problems with the HD24xr. Most recently, one of the two synced units changed the sample rate from 96khz on 12 of the tracks back to 48khz. We couldn't reset the sample rate, so all 24 tracks had to be dumped to PC, set to 48khz and loaded back to the HD24. Not to mention...

If you select live recording gear based on the fact that your career or life depend on it, you will not gamble on PC based systems. I mostly agree here, but I'll reiterate that Pro Tools HD systems are quite stable (at least in OSX) and we have almost no problems. Pro Tools HD is a seamless experie...

Pretty cool man! Thanks! Took about ten days to design, build and test. But it was just about the only tenable solution, short of buying a bunch of new things (including a new laptop). I couldn't get the latency low enough while maintaining a stable working environment with any amount of tweaking. ...

I hate to tell you Jim, but the HD24 is a computer. It's an embedded system, so you're right to point out "purpose built"-- not exactly a Personal Computer. I thoroughly enjoy editing in Pro Tools, and I don't mind recording when I'm in a proper HD facility (2ms latency), but by and large there are...

Try using an RE-20. They were designed to reduce proximity effect, so you can get close in to the drum and have less low frequency inflation. I use an RE-20 on bass drum almost always and I tend to back it off quite a bit still. I would definitely describe this sound as a thud.

For some sessions out of town, I DIY'ed a Mic Preamp with Tone-Balance and Low Order Harmonic Distortion generator and an Optical Compressor: http://glorytron.com/2012/12/vocal-sessions-with-el-campo-diy-gear/ Also, I built a thing called the Sync-Mode Monitor to deal with monitoring latency, but I'...

I bought one of those once. Gutted it and used the VU Meters and hookup wire in a bunch of DIY Gear. I just checked my dropbox, no joy on a service manual for it, though I'm sure I had one at one point.

I'm typically either working with Pro Tools HD, tape or HD24xr. Latency has never really been a problem for me until I went mobile for overdubs. This solution worked out really well for me though. The switching is handled by FET mutes and a microcontroller fed HUI commands from Pro Tools. I needed a...

A DIY solution for latency problems

I had to move some vocal sessions out of the studio recently and track them mobile. My laptop isn't much up to the task, and all I could borrow was an M-Audio Fast Track Pro. The round trip latency made it impossible to monitor through Pro Tools in Input Monitoring Mode, so I built a box that automa...
