Re: Decent Live/Field Recording

As for the Acid question, I really have no idea how it records the audio, but I am sure it has some facility to 'save-as' a pair of mono tracks instead of one stereo track in its menu. And even if it doesn't, this is about as simple a process as you can do. Any number of other editing software can ...

Re: A system that can match/top the editing speed of Fairlig

ProTools is a super fast editing machine if you know what your doing. Compared to what? Compared to Sound forge/Vegas? I started out on Digi (like everyone else) but found the Sonic Foundry stuff light years faster to use. The last studio I worked at started out with TDMs and Toolboxes, and eventua...

Re: Budgeting: Real Studio vs DAW

The vicious cycle unites us! At its core, computers are destroying the music industry! LOL!! Why do you say that? Robots are destroying the music industry - human robots. Both the ones managing the business and the ones really in command - the ones buying the product. Will someone please stop them ...

Re: Budgeting: Real Studio vs DAW

Radiohead and Beck probably get 7 figure advances to make albums. actually, if someone gave me a million dollars to record an album, i'd build a house, and a studio in the house, and pay Nigel to come over and record my album. and if the album flops, i'd still have a house to live in and a studio t...

Re: A system that can match/top the editing speed of Fairlig

however protools is a different beast altogether, in that the range of plugins make creative sound design etc a lot easier than on the fairlight (i haven't tried the dream). If you need effects processing, you are much better of with a pc based native system. The number and variety of high fidelity...

Re: Best synth program for a PC

Cakewalk's project five looks pretty cool. Go to www.computersandmusic.com. There's a review of project five, and a comparison to Propellerhead's Reason. I wasn't impressed at all myself, by either the project 5 (I was sent a full prerelease copy from CW) or Computers and music. The project 5 is so...

Re: Mackie VLZ Pres

As for me...I own no API or NEVE but have used both often enough to know that my Mackies are yucky to at least MY ears. I own a set of Davisound pres that I like quite a bit and can pick out the Mackies in a blind test every time. All I gotta do is pick the one that sounds like it further away with...

Re: Is the difference b/w 44.1 and 96k really that huge?

Can you really tell that much of a difference b/w 24 bit 44.1 recordings and 24 big 96 k recordings? What is the huge sonic difference? Keep in mind that while the audible difference may be relatively subtle, keeping your signal chain as high quality as possible will pay off - especially if you are...
