No, you moron. I'm pointing out that local companies that market their locality are sometimes likely to deliver poorer service than the "big box corporate retailers". And for the record, the guy at compusa was infinitely cool. The woman behind the cash register was infintely cool. They played in ban...

Sorry for the ambiguous "bigger" descriptive. The tube just seems to have a bigger frequency response...a more balanced sound top to bottom. The jfets I built are a little spike-y in the low-mids. The DI is the bomb.

FWIW, I'm a bigger fan of the tube. A little bigger sounding to me...amazing on drums!

I love apple. Can anyone tell me when to buy stocks? They might go up tomorrow, I dunno... Should I sell tomorrow? Such is business, such is life. I love apple, Iactually own stock in the company. I have believed in them throughout, and now that they are rocking, I STILL believe in them. Hopefully ...

Thanks Portland Mac Store.

All resolved...manager called, explained that he's totally willing to make it fair. I wasn't his first call. Three cheers.

but in all honesty you can't be naive enough to trust that all these companies are looking out for your best interest. That's nobodies duty but your own. I know that if I'm dropping a couple grand on something I'm sure as hell going to do some research first. So true. I guess I'd hoped a "local" bu...

thearnicasync, get over yourself. It's just a f#$ing computer. I work for a reseller and WE did not know that Apple was going to do that with an imac. No one did. I was on the phone with the call center in Austin when the announcement was made. i was reading the announcements to him because PEOPLE ...

It's bad business, that's why. You shouldn't have to go to rumor sites and role the dice when you buy a computer. Some mac dorks really enjoy that, but I don't really want to take the time. Why, to support Apple, should I have to stay in touch with the speculation of this year's MacWorld. Isn't it e...

Over at the DUC, it's kind of been confirmed...PT LE won't work on the new Intel machines. Intel macs run only universal binary apps...so it'll be awhile. Maybe it wasn't such a mistake getting the g5 dog that I have now, anyway...

Well, it may not end up being their fault, if they intend to lower the price on old stock imac g5's. The sales person I talked to said they don't plan to do that. I think they'll take total advantage of the ipod generation that says give me an imac...i don't care as long as it surfs the web and I ca...

Yep

Yeah, I am going to return it. Good luck selling yesterday's imac "open box" for $1300. Apparently the VP is calling on Friday, and if he decides to screw me, then the internet campaign begins. I think people on Craigslist, macprices.com, et. al should be aware that they make their money that way. I...

Digital performer meets pro tools

Hi there,

Anyone know if you can open pro tools sessions in Digital Performer?

I can't seem to find it in the pro tools support section at Motu...

Pooh.
