Re: Apple Spec Leak

Why in the world would you ever need 8 gigs of ram, that's just laughable to me. And they start at $1999. It just seems funny to me cause i have a computer that I bought about 2 years ago that has 512mb of RAM, and that's still not even the standard in newer computers. I'm sure 8 gigs of ram will b...

Re: 001 question

I think round robin means; instead of writing all of the data to one drive, you can set it up to write to many different drives at the same time, meaning that the drives are only doing a small amount of work each.

please correct me if I am wrong... :lol:

Re: 001 question

So my question is, if i have protools LE installed on my internal drive, can i run sessions entirely from an external firewire drive? Or do i have to use in the internal drive and transfer them all later? Thanks. You can use the firewire drive as storage, and run pro tools off the system drive. Onc...

Re: 001 question

Well if you wipe the system drive, it won't matter whether or not you have pro tools on a separate drive. All the registration and install information will be lost when you format the system drive, so pro tools will be without necessary files, and will not run. It's not hard to reinstall pro tools.

Re: Crappy kick sounds

Or, you can generate a sine wave somewhere between 60-90 Hz, then put a gate on that channel using the bass drum as the key.

Re: Recording hand claps

This one band I was recording was going for that huge stadium kind of crowd clapping thing... i digress. So, 5 of us went into a smaller (12ft X 16ft) room, that was completely concrete and almost empty and clapped away. The mic was an atm 4033 about 8 ft away. We did 8 tracks of us clapping to make...

I read somewhere else about using a de-esser to rid of the hi-hat... interesting.

Re: Damn loud hi-hats, and that washy cymbol effect.

my current set up is a rode nt4 stereo mic that i usually put about where the center of the resonant head of the kick is, about 1.5-2.5 feet about the tallest cymbol. this way the mic is more lined up on top of the cymbols and the high hat is a little removed from it. Do you have any control over h...

Re: Damn loud hi-hats, and that washy cymbol effect.

Will, what kind of overheads are you using, and what set-up currently? What are the dimensions of your room?

One thing that I can't figure out lately is why that weird cymbal sound sometimes shows up on the tom mics, even when they're soloed, so I don't see it being a phase problem, but it may be.

He's a questions. What makes you think that a PC would be more likely to crash? I have XP, and it has crashed maybe once in 2 years.
