Re: Midi Instruments in ProTools LE

I'm not sure which version it is. I think it's RTAS, but I can't be sure.

Midi Instruments in ProTools LE

javascript:emoticon(':?:') Can anyone tell me how to run the B4 organ or any other midi instruments in ProTools LE 5 for the Mac? I think it has something to do with ASIO drivers, but I'm not sure. I'm running a digi 001 and have an Oxygen 8 for a controller. I've tried configuring it a few differen...

Re: "Getting it"?Have you ever?

The record I made with him is a pretty straight rock and roll record. Sort of Elvis Costello vs. Keith Richards thing.

Wayne's a great guy. One of my favorite folks on this planet. You can check out our work at www.alexsniderman.com/mp3.html or on endino.com on the weed page. Thanks.

Re: "Getting it"?Have you ever?

I remember making my first record with Wayne Kramer. We had been in the studio for the entire day doing basic tracks, and now it was time for me to do some vocals. The drummer and bassist were gone. I was tired, and I hadn't really wanted to stay and work, but we only had so much time in the studio,...

Re: MIDI, USB, RTAS plugins -- Help and info, please!

I just went through a similarly frustrating thing with MIDI and ProTools. I have a Blue and White G3 running a Digi 001 with ProTools LE5. I had a USB hub, but it didn't allow me to send MIDI. I returned it to the store. Also, the keyboard I bought, an Oxygen 8, is USB powered, but according to the ...

weird mike distortion for live gigs

Is there a good (or lousy) mike that one can depend on to distort and sound crazy (i.e. Waits, Ministry, etc.). I want to steal an idea from Ed Harcourt. He had two mikes mounted on the same stand, a 58 and something else (I couldn't tell what it was, maybe a Green Bullet?) and in certain points in ...

Re: what about songwriting?

All of you have brought up excellent points about songwriting. I sound just like a kindergarten teacher... Lots of things I hadn't ever thought of or hadn't been able to really articulate (i.e. Bay City Rollers vs. Ramones/Hootie vs. Lips) very well. I think the missing ingredient in the Rollers and...

what about songwriting?

I find it interesting that any "rock" producer/engineer will tell you almost unequivocably that a band having great songs matters a hell of a lot more than a good recording. A good song can transcend a shitty recording. A great recording of a shitty song sucks. When you have both, it's magical. I re...

Re: Partner Wanted for Manhattan Studio Share

Would you be willing to rent the place by the day? I know you're looking for a real business partner, but I was wondering if you'd be willing to rent it maybe for a couple of weekends running. I've got a band, and a professional engineer (former Hit Factory staffer), and we could use a place to do l...

Re: do you ever get sick of it

Nashville is tough that way. I grew up there, and now I live in New York. It's also weird because many of the bands will do anything they can do in order to appeal to what they think the business wants, usually two years after whatever trend they're chasing is over. I've gotta say that Nashville ban...
