Thanks for the input guys. Jeff, agreed on Soundcraft. Had some good experience with them in the past. But do they have a good rackable mixer? Real MC, thank you. Had never heard of the APB line. I see nothing but high praise for that mixer in my searches. Glad you mentioned it! Thanks for the input...

Thanks for the input guys. Nice to have people to kick ideas around with. Need to do some more searching, the DDA stuff looks cool, but maybe a little too big for my needs? Kayagum, you may be onto something with a clean board and additional outboard for character.. Jeff, thanks for chiming in. Yes,...

Need a quality small format mixer for performing & recor

Did a few searches, saw the sub $3k sidecar thread. My needs are similar but different. I do electronic music, and some recording at home. I am good with my soundcards (Metric Halo), so I don't care about digital consoles right now. What I'd like is the form and function of the old Mackie 1604, but ...

Free Sound On Sound, Tape Op, and Wire Magazines in Seattle

I have several stacks of Tape Op, Wire (UK music mag) and Sound On Sound magazines if anyone is interested. If no one wants them I'll be dropping them off at 1/2 Price Books in the next few days.

Won't ship these, local only. Not that anyone would want me to ship them, :D

PM me for info.

Thanks guys, I'll check those out.

On the Mac side, it still seems like iTunes is the easiest. Irritating because this means anything that I want to tag has to be added to the itunes library first.

Ariist song and album Meta tagging demo wavs and mp3s?

I am curious what people are using to tag wav or mp3 files for circulation? I have files to share and hate the thought of them showing up in someone's itunes library with no info. As I understand it, mp3's will embed the song info, but wav info is stored in the itunes db. Is this correct? I know wav...

Thanks for the helpful reply JES. That's some great insight you provided. I just got a shiny new box (hello Mr Machinedrum!) so my urge to purchase Altiverb has cooled a bit. But about the time my taxes come in, I'll be thinking about it hard again for all the reasons you pointed out, GUI, library,e...

Thanks Justin. Opinions are what I was looking for. Personally I'd take "My War" over " "Short Walk On A Long Pier", but I guess we differ there. :wink: I spent some time last night drenching some stems in Altiverb. i still like the sound, but I am a little less hot for it today... I'll spend more t...

Thanks for the reply Jim. You are right, "worth it?" is very subjective and probably not the best way to post the question. "Does Altiverb do it for you?" might have been a better title for the thread... Regarding using it exclusively in Live, that is and will probably remain my DAW of choice for wr...

I'd really like to hear from some folks who've bought Altiverb and love it or hate.
I'd also like to hear from anyone who thought about it and decided to pass and why.

It's a hefty investment for a verb plug. I have almost talked myself into buying it....

Is Altiverb worth it?

I have a pretty good home studio setup, but I am lacking in the reverb department, I have and love a real AKG BX20, and the EMT Plate for the UAD Card on a Mac Pro. I recently played with Altiverb at work, and could not believe how great it was. I was seriously floored. I am considering ponying up f...

Thanks Doug. I appreciate the first hand experience. Hard to tell when someone is speculating about what they think will fix something or if they actually know what the hell they are talking about. I've got the service manual, thanks, My backup plan, which adds to my fearlessness about bending the l...

Just checked your site Doug, I see that you are also the proud owner of 2 RE-201s. Have you personally seen the problem I am having corrected by adjusting the internal feedback pot? Some experienced perspective would be appreciated.

Are you speaking with experience tweaking Space Echos Doug? No one is talking about going Cro Mag on the leaf spring. And I disagree about which is more involved. While the RE-201 is not the biggest pain to crack and navigate internally, with a flick of the wrist using a Leatherman I am getting the ...
