Or you can open the files in Sound Forge or its batch converter, use the sample rate converter and check the 'change sample rate, do not resample' checkbox.

IMO, it sounded it noticeably better than the mackie, but a far cry as good as my RNP.

If you go XP, look into XP Pro. I've been happy with it and I THINK it gives you maximum tweakability for audio. I would look into the custom builds that are available from non-M$ sources. There are versions available where a great deal of bloat and resource overhead has been removed, and the insta...

Yes, back in my day, all the recording were much better. Much Better!!! And that's not all - everything sounded better: car horns, doors slamming, the television. Even the garbage truck. Everything!! These days it's all just crap. I don't understand how anybody can stand it. Ridiculous! No definiti...

XP is more robust, has better audio support, and is being currently updated and improved.

I have not seen any applications or devices that function under 2k but not XP, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

I'd wait for the new intel based Apples and just run windows on that. You should be able to dedicate a processor to Windows and a Processor to OSX and have them hooked up on dual monitors. If you can wait a little longer, this is the way to go... You'll need to provide links. This is pretty incredi...

Ultimately, it's their record, so the more involved they are they better. There's also a perception of value thing going on - I have found that a client is a lot more pleased with the end result if A) you've shown them exactly how much effort and skill went into making it and B) they feel that they...

Re: why eBay sucks

People apparently have no concept of being their own worst enemy when it comes to auctions. At the rate this is going, I'll bet it ends up selling for way more than its updated replacement. I bet the same thing happens to music gear too. :x That pc is absolutely not worth more than $300. You could ...

Mr. D....what ever ended up happening with the one which stopped working? I mean, obviously you solved the problem, but how? Did it just go away? The thread's really interesting; since that server's two years old now though, has that model been supplanted by another? Oh yes a - bad memory chip IIRC...

1. I don't see how many expansion slots it has. This is important if this machine ever gets used for something else. I was also concerned that the motherboard in general is a mystery - they only mention the chipset. This would be fine if I had trust in emachines, as I do in other companies, such as ...

Andrew Embassy from Velella Velella records everything in to an older version of Acid. Doesn't use any of the acid functions at all - just uses it as a multitracker recorder that can put plug ins on audio and sequences drum hits. That would get my vote.

... until they don't. I remember seeing all the "switch" ads saying "Macs never freeze or crash", and thinking bitterly about the hour I spent trying to open up a document on our new G5, which froze and needed a hard reboot every time. I'm always rolling on the floor when I hear the 'tadaa' mac boo...

Howdy... 1. Was just talking with a bandmate and told him about my decision to buy a PC, and he said, "remember the other day when we were listening to our demo on the engineer's pc, and we were getting those bursts of digital noise?
