That way, you won't have a G.

Would you please go the site again, download the mac version again (it's now a .zip file) and see if you have better luck with that? Thanks! Alright, I downloaded the zip and it unzipped fine. Maybe everyone here is just a lot more computer savvy than I am (I'm considered tech support for a lot of ...

Ugh, that Gibson G. I've never known what exactly the issue is, but I don't think it's the tuners because, as ubertar mentioned, the issue would probably present itself on all strings, not specifically one. I've owned two Les Pauls myself, played a few SGs, a 335, 339, and 137, as well as similar Ep...

This seems like a great tool! And I repeat the request for any info from Mac users as to whether it even works there... Thanks! I've downloaded the .tgz and .jar files from the website and haven't been able to get them to work. I'm on a Macbook Pro, 64 bit. Unfortunately I get this result with both ...

this situation is where melodyne really shines. the ability to snap everything to a key, and then undo certain wavs within that take...or manually adjust them in such a precise way is really awesome for screamo dudes. Same for Cubase's VariAudio, which is very similar to Melodyne. You can make move...

one thing i forgot to mention before.... if you're boosting high end on vocals...and you recorded those vocals with an affordable condenser of chinese origin...be VERY MINDFUL of what happens to the sibilants. My love of doing airy vocals with certain genres came right along with the point I starte...

Thanks! Sounds and looks great -- he mentions "coming out soon" or something like that. It does, and that video is from this past December. The card is out now, I'll actually be buying it (and a new computer) within the next couple weeks. Just finished the jobs I needed to cover them both, but now ...

edit: just saw you mentioned the Lynx Aurora 16. I tried it but the console app did not seem quite as flexible to me as the UA Apollo. They've got a new console app for the thunderbolt/AES cards (I believe it's AES too, positive about the thunderbolt as it's what I'm switching to). It looks a lot m...

thanks for all the info! I have been seriously considering selling my Lynx Aurora and getting an Apollo, because I'm so tired of not having proper headphone mixes. I don't use a mixer so I can't build a mix pre-tape, so the digital mixer had to have headphone routing. I love the lynx, but the softw...

Since I hadn't know about the new album... I bought it. I like it! I got it a few days before the SNL performance after a friend/client had brought it over for me to listen to. I've never hated Beck but never really got too into him. I love this album. Cohesive songs and cohesive feel of the album ...
