and it's far, far less bright than I expect from a brilliant cymbal. I'm not sure if I'd say it's dark but borders on it - it doesn't reach that "glass shattering", almost distorted highs kind of sound that a lot of cymbals do, which is what I really like about it. generally, brilliant cymbals have...

Wave's plugs work with Reaper just fine. you have to load the VST version though not RTAS. im running many waves plugins with reaper and it's working great.

no problems with the urs, waves, or sonnox stuff. like at all. ever. i really love reaper. the only thing that i wish it would do is organize the plugins like protools does. if im looking for a compressor, i do a search for compressors but sometimes the word compressor isn't in the name so i never e...

ADAT lightpipe from the UA to ADAT lightpipe in to the Firepod. and you need to connect the WC on both units and choose which signal to clock off of. this would show up as ADAT channels 9-16 on the presonus control console. this is all by memory. mine was stolen a bit ago but im remember it pretty w...

you're all good dude. if you dig the sound of them than go for it. i've been playing for 15 years and spent about 8 of those years working at a drum shop. as long as you take care of those hats, that keyhole isn't going anywhere.

im mostly thinking that i want to stay as mobile as possible. a shitty mixing board, an isolated 8chan. splitter (or y cables) and my usual mic pre's just makes everything much more complicated. bummer. ... enter my main squeeze. i'm getting married in a a few weeks and she said we should get a ripp...

i dont think i could get the buffer below 512 and it may have even been 1024. the guitarist was saying that it was unbearable to play. i agree. i just ended up having him bring his amp into the live room so they wouldnt have to use headphones. my rig isn't setup to record at the moment because it so...

latency and an 002... question.

i recently got a BLA 002 after my presonus rig got stolen out of my car on christmas night. BONERS! anyway... i went to run the new set up with all 8 channels running and trying to monitor a guitar and the latency was terrible. the one thing the presonus had going for it was dealing with latency for...
