While nothing like Scodiddly's creation, I found an electro plasma light in a lava lamp style last year. Everyone loves it, and even single coil pups don't react to it, but the body rings just enough it has to be turned off when the condensers are on. Most people don't notice it until I point it out...

I have protocols, logic, mixbus, ableton and Presonus 3.2. Logic has been my go to, but from the videos I've watched, I think Presonus will become my main daw. They have a great business model.

UAD hardware and software is now compatible with the latest update they put out, and I got an email from Native Instruments that their software has been updated. I'm still hesitant to upgrade from Yosemite. The buzz seems to indicate E. C. Is faster, but I haven't done enough research to jump off th...

I've had a vibrolux reverb and oil can delay since '73, and bought them used with a CBS Leslie tone cab and 61 SG. Bought an AC-10c reissue last year, love them, but need to overhaul the old Fender, I heard it starting to fail a couple years ago, and shut it down. I have 4 boxes, including Jerry Don...

You might want to look over at black lion audio. They show their idea of different units stock, and modded. I had my pro 40 modded and use it as an adat unit into an Rme card. There are drivers for OSX all the way back to the original 9652! I still have mine, and it's one of the early ones, but they...

The best price unit I could find was the Audioengine D1 DAC, 24bit, up to 192 KHz conversion. The specs are stellar, though it does require USB power, it doesn't require a computer for Toslink. It's Rca or headphones out and Toslink or USB in, and can be used to bypass the computer audio chipset. Th...

I'm using Logic, mainly, but used Reaper on PC in the past, but Reaper always seemed fast enough on Win 7. If your interface was fast enough in the past, and you have it set up the same way it should be close to the same. Asio drivers are your friend on Windows, if your fast track is compatible. I'd...

Toslink to stereo d/a

I've searched the net for a stand alone d/a converter for my brother's man cave cable system and have no idea what to recommend for him. He has the small Mackie mixer, stereo yamaha hs8 pair and hs8s sub. He's loved my studio systems over the years, but didn't want to go over the mass drop prices I'...

Hi, I'm running a twin duo and twin pcie in a Magma box on a MacBook Air i5 4gb and haven't noticed the problem yet. It's all thunderbolt. Does the load increase as you add plugs? I use VSL pro 5 to off load vsti's to my last studio PC.
