I have the MBP connected to an OWC drive via FW800, and then I come out of that drive's FW400 port to my MH2882, which is also daisy-chained to a MOTU 828mk2. The drive is simply for backups, sometimes for VIs or samples (rarely these days). So the interfaces are running FW400, the drive is running...

I am running backups and audio via FW 800 (which are running at FW400 speeds due to both FW400 and FW800 using the same FW800 port. Unless you are routing FW 800 devices THROUGH FW400 ports, using both FW800 and FW400 devices on a single FW800 bus does not slow down the bus to 400MBits. FW800 and F...

To be fair, the FULL price of Logic X is a lot cheaper than the UPGRADE price used to be, so even with Apple obviously discontinuing "upgrade" pricing, we're still all coming out well ahead. Same goes for FCP. I agree we are coming out well ahead, PDFs of the good documentation work on my iPad very...

A terabyte SSD is under $400.

I really wouldn't bother with spinny drives for recording anymore.

The answer is: mess with it until you like the results. I do a lot of external processing. Sometimes I'll want the original signal to add the clarity, sometimes I'll just want the ethereal floatiness of the stereo chorus. Sometimes I'll use just the grainy grunge that comes out of the analog delay a...

MacBook Pro and a ULN-2? or even a ULN8? The Metric Halo stuff is the single best value you are ever going to get out of an investment in digital hardware. My 2882 started off life ten years ago as a +DSP unit, got upgraded to current spec with a 2d card a few years ago, and will be upgraded again t...

My understanding is that loudness wars got started with jukeboxes. The radio explanation doesn't make sense because--though what you say about soft signal and dropouts is true, every radio station employs a chain of limiting, multiband compression, 15 khz lo-pass, etc before the signal heads to the...

I think part of what drives loudness wars is people listening on earbuds, and people listening on players that don't have a lot of headroom. But maybe I'm wrong? Also, better audio would reveal more of the annoying artifacts associated with brickwall limiting, and thus discourage it? Perhaps I'm be...

FWIW, I like the Chunks feature of Digital Performer, but other than that, the interface drives me up the wall.

Logic has got better and better over the years, and the current version (10.0.6) is probably the nicest (read: least annoying) it's ever been.

The reverb is fine, its only the echo thats quiet. What about the echo pot? I've checked the internal level pot and its cranked already. The external pot seems to function properly. Sorry to run through the "Is it plugged in?"-variety questions. I cannot count how many times the solution to a studi...

What about the Echo Volume pot?

Does the Reverb come through, or is that equally soft?

That's not a secure delete, though. That just deletes the directory, exactly the same as when you simply trash something in the Finder. If you want to *secure* delete something, that simply takes time. Every bit has to be erased, overwritten, erased again, overwritten, etc. If you don't have the tim...
