ART DPS-II Pre-Amp

I was wondering if anyone owns the ART DPS-II Pre-Amp. I'm contemplating getting one and I wanted to hear some samples of it. In partaricular, I'd like to hear vocals from a SM 58 through the ART DPS-II. Also I'd like to know if you've had any technical difficulties with it. Is it built with quality...

Re: Cheap Mic Deathmatch

Now, I know a lot of people here are tiring of hearing the same old questions, but I figured I'd condense this all in to one big noob fyi. Set-up: home studio Use: detailed guitars, vocals, sparse drums Budget: around $125 Mics: MXL V63M versus Behringer B-1 Which would you choose? I've had bad luc...

Re: OK, OK, Here's yer Mackie Satellite thread

OK, so I gave this thing a whirl. Let me say right out that it isn't really something I turn out to need, and I'm gonna give it to a friend, who might also post here, so Mackie gets a freebie. My impressions: it's a solid piece of kit, and there are people out there for whom it's gonna be perfect. ...

Fixing Guitar Cables

My friend just gave me two guitar cables that he broke. I'm trying to figure out what thing to solder to what. Uber simple question I know. I tried to search the forum for it, but I didn't come up with anything. A picture or diagram would be awesome, but a clear enough physical description will prob...

i hope to be a presenter at that award ceremony! my contention is that CoreAudio, at least in OS 10.3.9, only goes up to 48k, and that when the MOTU is plugged in and all sound outputs are set to go through it, that the MOTU drivers and interface take over and operate at whatever sample rate chosen...

yeah, i've never been able to use DP 4.6 and iTunes at the same time on a 15" powerbook g4, 1.3 ghz, 1 gig ram. i do normally work at 88.2, 24 bit. Yah, I felt really dumb when I figured this out, because I thought it was a bug in the new version of DP. Turns out, when I got my new computer, it was...

Can someone right up an article about the Mackie Satalite for www.wikiRecording.org ? I'd do it if I got a free one, but alas, the sites not popular enough to garner such attention yet. Give me a year or two though (particularly when I'm out of college) and it should be blazin (we get about 200 user...

iTunes and Digital Performer conflict

I found a glich in DP that I'd like to share with people. When you run both DP and iTunes at the same time, you can get mega digital distortion when playing back audio in DP. This is caused by DP being set to a higher audio resolution (24 bit rather than 16 bit, or 192 kHz rather than 44.1 kHz) than...

MacBook Fan Control Software (a MUST have)

I just found this fantastic piece of software I thought I'd share with everyone who owns a MacBook or MacBook Pro. smcFanControl lets you control the minimum fan speed on your MacBook and MacBook Pro. Now anyone who has one of these machines knows the joy and the pain of the duo core processor. Its ...

Wow, thanks for the explination! Quick question, I thought that when you inverted the polarity of a wave form, but then decreased its amplitude and then played it along with the origional, it would decrease the amplitude of the origional by the same factor. Isn't that the case, or am I swinging in ...

Noise reduction of the kind described here is not "cancelling" anything out. In fact, the only way to cancel out a waveform by inverting it's polarity is by using the exact waveform on itself - that is, the snippet used as the noise sample, exactly aligned but polarity inverted with itself, would c...

When I saw Steely Dan play live, they also had two drummers. Ofcourse, its completely different than southern rock, but these two were tight. Thats one thing I've always loved about Steely Dan, the parts are so well written that they can have two drummers and not have a cluttered sound! I got the im...

However, due to the level of noise reduction I wanted to achieve, SoundSoap did cause a significant amount of artifacting, as if I had compressed the audio file into a low fi MP3. That's a common by-product of over-using most any noise reduction software, not just SoundSoap (my definition of "over-...
