I've been seeing a lot of RME-class litepipe converters on Craigslist lately. If your budget was closer to 5-600 there are some really solid converters available. 2-ch and 8-ch... I bought my RME new (about 6 years ago now) to expand/improve my 001 experience, and while I moved on to new computers a...

Wasn't there a particular G4 model that had issues with excessive radiated noise from the power supply? Did the noise just start recently, or has it been there all along?

Re: understanding phase

it's been pointed out already that there's nothing to hear with absolute phase changes, only relative. You're not going to hear anything when you solo something and change the phase. You'll only start to hear things when you have the same sound on two tracks and you change the phase of one track rel...

Re: Common practices with low cuts

Try hi-pass at 80-100 Hz for the stuff that doesn't need a lot of lows. That can clear a lot of room for kik/bass low end.

some good suggestions already, but I didn't see this one...

Record mono, hard pan to your favorite side, aux send to a delay line (short), return to a channel hard panned to the other side. Adjust level and width to taste....

Re: Removing a Tube Amp from my old wurlitzer?

In my little experience with this, I think your amp might be a HOT Chassis amp. When you plug in your guitar cable to test it, be prepared for loud, terrible noises, and for heavens sake, don't be grounded when you do it. Maybe some kind of iso. xformer would be the simplest way in..... Do you have ...
