Re: Opinions on UAD-1 cards?

Honestly the thing does have a bit of a cultish following....

The only detractors I've seen are the Bomb Factory loyalists and sales people.

I've tried them both and both are great.... but, there's no question in my mind which ones are the most useful for the way I work.

Re: why does iTunes suck?

maybe what i'm talking about is more the intrinsic sound of the app and how it deals with plug ins and stuff... i dunno...
now, there would definitely be a difference here.

Re: why does iTunes suck?

same file, 2 apps, same converters... the only difference is that I'm using Cubase SX and you're using Logic. I do own the sampler... I didn't even realize that they had a forum until today when I went to find the link to their website. You guys are the only ones here reporting any difference... may...

Re: why does iTunes suck?

and, I've now tried the listening test with Cubase SX2 and iTunes on a g4 Powerbook and a windows pc.

I still hear no difference.

Re: why does iTunes suck?

I THOUGHT that I could hear a difference too! but, if you're hearing a difference, it's not coming from the mix buss. you can take a mix, done on PT and one done on Logic, with no fx processing, line them up on two tracks, and invert the phase of one... the result............... SILENCE!! if there w...

128kbps AAC is WORLDS BETTER than 128kbps MP3!!! it sucks that they're going to raise prices... I hadn't heard that! http://www.wsjclassroomedition.com/onlinemusic/story15.html looks like the major labels are out to fuck up online distribution, too!! It just amazes me that some people will still def...

Re: why does iTunes suck?

I am pretty sure that Itunes files are comparable to 128 kpbs, which is not very good to begin with. Probably why it sounds more compressed and less clarity. Pretty lame in my opinion.. this is the kind of stuff that is funny (not really) about music forums. "I'm pretty sure" is code for "I haven't...

Re: Opinions on UAD-1 cards?

wow! thanks! very nice complement!! that sucks about dp. I've been wondering if PTLE will compensate. Cubase SX would compensate for the delay only on audio channels and not groups, sends, or vsti's, until the most recent version, SX2. life has been so much better with the powered plugins since sx2....

Re: Opinions on UAD-1 cards?

anyone know which apps DO NOT have plugin delay compensation??

I thought my Cubase was the last to adapt. but. apparently DP doesn't have it yet.

Re: Triggered Drums & Drum Hit Replacement

we did basic tracks today and the dm5 was great! it took some tweaking to get the triggers working the way I wanted... finally got rid of double triggers. In the end, I'll probably not use the cheap triggers I bought in a session again. I think it'd be easier just gating the recorded tracks and runn...

Re: Opinions on UAD-1 cards?

the best thing that ever happened to my little computer-based studio!! I don't know the technical differences between the 1176 and the 1176se... but, the 1176se is perfectly usable in my opinion. It sounds very similar to the 1176. Also incredibly useful is the compressor in the channel strip. I've ...
