The UAD de-esser has done what I needed, and +1 on in front of verbs and delays.

Sounds like you're good. I have an 880, to me, it's sure worth the money. Ymmv. I have a Bla modded Focusrite pro 40, too, but it's only got one adat out. So it's limited to 8 adat @ 48k or 4 @ 96. The Asp 880 wants to be the adat or word clock master. The pro 40 has Adat I/O and works in standalone...

An email showed up yesterday from Harrison. Mixbus 3 has been released. Asio, vst, vsti, multi-processor support. I'm working on my room, so wil update when that's done. From initial reports, win 10 seems to be working pretty well out of the gate, with a few interface problems, and Osx a few more. L...

I run a RME RayDat on my live PC, and unfortunately, they let me down with no drivers past XP for my original hammer fall 96/52. That's a fail to me. I can't speak to other brands.

I have a MacBook Air 11 inch, and MagSafe works just fine. I bought it to use with the UAD Twin. I use it with VSL Pro 5 to run soft synths and the ensemble on an 8 core Amd PC I already had. With VSL and UAD plugs, the I5 Air is plenty of processor and has the Thunderbolt required.

They have a long ways to go to get me to upgrade from 11 to 12. Uad plugs are really good, especially the mkii versions.

Got one of the new Vox AC10's, the old vibrolux verb got too heavy to pack around.

The Studio Projects B1&B3 have very low noise floors. Add your choice of after market k47 capsules and you have a nice pair, though not perfectly matched. Ears can do quite a bit for that.

I use a dbx 296 spectral enhancer after a dual 31 band graphic for feedback cuts for FOH. The worse the club or room the more it helps restore the sound without feedback. Also use a dbx 120a on the kick, and line mix that with the bass to feed the subs, live. I've used the 296 on 4 track recording, ...

I'm using a Novation 61 MkII. I like the action on it over the Roland JX8P and line 6 kb37 I have, but I'm just a guitar guy.

Hi, I have one, and love it! With console 2 coming out in March, you'll be able to add more apollos in a chain on the thunderbolt line. I have an audient asp 880 for my adat add on mic pres/converters. Yeah, the 16 is converters only, so you would need outboard pres or line level devices for it. The...

Jamkazam

I happened across Jamkazam surfing yesterday. Jamkazam.com They claim 10 ms. latency at up to 500 miles with a hardwired net connection, no wireless, and a fast interface. Daw ops are probably pre-geared for this. It's in Beta now, and a free download. It looks like it might be useful.
