Apogee Jam? Something else?

For a variety of reasons I'd like to get a little doohickey like the Apogee Jam for noodling about when I'm not near my iMac. I tried to search for opinions of it, but I confess to not having much luck with this site's search function. So... Anyone have one? Do you like it? Does it suck? Any alterna...

TAKEN... Free: 10-space rack (must pick up)

TAKEN.

Just a plain old black, omniraxx rack. Good condition. I'm in Maplewood NJ. PM if you want it.

I can't tell you how it compares to the Ensemble, but I have an older version of the Metric Halo 2882. The new one: https://www.mhsecure.com/mhdirect/produ ... t=3&page=1 is probably better. Great tech support. Mine sounds wonderful (and it's almost 10 years old).

The guy was a great producer, film maker, human rights activist. He was a badass bassist... One of the "good guys." I hope he comes back as some sort of fire and brimstone Paul Wellstone type and leads us out of the muck. Judging by the brevity of this thread, TOMB people might need to get a little ...

I downloaded the free version of Studio One (the Presonus DAW). Kind of fun/interesting. But I just used a bit of the IRS refund on a Line 6 M9. I know multi effects pedals are little bit pooh-pooh'ed, but this thing is just great. Great sounds, great usability, very very quiet (dead silent) in bypa...

FS: Metric Halo 2882 +DSP (no 2d)

My recording needs have changed and I no longer require all the ins and outs of the 2882. I want to sell this unit to help fund the 2d-ification of my ULN/2. I purchased this way way back, so it's an old one, but not heavily used at all. It works perfectly. It is NOT 2d expanded, but it does have th...

Help with Logic

I'm thinking it's time for me to get someone to sit with me and help me work through my set-up, workflow, etc. in Logic. Any idea as to how to find such a resource? I'm just outside of NYC in NJ. Of course, I suppose this could be virtual as well with screen sharing, etc. Still, googling has not bee...

Sadly... not so simple. Still not working. On playback, the pedalboard is "live" and controls the region, but what I did while recording it is not played back. Any other ideas/thoughts? Edit to add: Okay... I think I may have figured something out. If I set the automation to "Latch" and do the thing...

I could swear I tested all the modes--but I'll try again soon. It appears you can assign the mode at the region level, but also for individual pieces of data (e.g., volume, pan, plug-in). Does it matter where you assign it?

Logic: Recording the Pedalboard plug-in?

Probably I'm just missing something obvious, but how do I "record" pedalboard actions during a take? I'm controlling the pedalboard with an FCB1010. I've experimented with the various automation settings. One weird behavior I get with Touch or Latch is that if I start playing with a pedal bypassed, ...

Thanks for the tips... I flew out on Friday, but by happenstance I did get a beer at the Alibi room. I also had some really good sushi at a place near there (Sea Monster Sushi). Was unable to see any music, hopefully there will be a next time. Spent most of Friday ahead of my flight walking around S...

Vancouver?

Here for work, but have some free time. Gorgeous fucking place. Any reccos for good bars? Restaurants? Maybe places to see live music? Maybe cool instrument stores, preferably used? Other stuff to do?

That's one hell of an assumption. Please elaborate on what you mean by that last statement. Well, it wasn't an assumption, it was speculation. I think by-and-large, ours is not a music making or music participating culture, it's a music consumption culture. I would speculate that if you came from a...
