  1. HI, Any help on this would be much appreciated. I've been recording for a little while and have admittedly developed lots of bad habits...the first is doing it my way and not knowing all of the fundamentals before starting ambitious projects. If someone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. I've been recording my full band at rehearsals and shows and a major problem has come up with some degree of regularity: disc too slow to record. I feel like I've got the hardware, but can't get it all to play nice. Setup: MacBook (logic9) 2.2GHz Core 2, 4GB RAM. Saffire Pro 40+OctopreMKII. I use the MacBook's internal hard drive....and I've run into even more problems when I use my external firewire drive. I record 16 tracks simultaneously. All I want to do is record tracks...no playback, so latency is not a concern. Are there any "bare-bones" speed settings that can aid to my CPU usage? Should I be doing this in garageband and sending the audio over to logic for mix-down. Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

    static crackle from guitar scratch plate

    HI, I seem to build up a bit of a static charge on my scratch plate when playing my guitar (just like when you rub your hair on a balloon, expect this is done by rubbing my fingers over the scratch plate) Its not physically noticable (no shocks) but when i discharge the static by touching the scratch-plate i get a little "crack" sound which is a pain in the a$$ during recording. (similar sound to the old vinyl records static crackle, but just single clicks in my case) i've tried anti-static spray on the scratch plate and all earthing is in place. I even tried changing clothing in case it was my nylon y-fronts! If my hand is a little damp it seems to cure it for a short while but i get fed up having to keep licking my knuckles mid-strum. (serious, this is no joke) i wonder if there is a coating i could add? Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  3. Hi, I have posted on here before about starting to have issues with my 218E faceplate coming loose a little bit from my keyboard. Well, the problem is getting worse, as it is starting to lose connection when I touch it. Does ANYONE credible outside of having to ship it to BEMI work on these for a decent price? I know it is probably a simple gluing technique. The thought of being without the 218 in my system is a crushing feeling, but if I don't rectify this now, it may end up a permanent botch. Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  4. HI, I have been combing through the 2500 listings in the musical instrument section of my local craigslist, when it occurred to me:Is there any real value in buying hardware anymore?I see lots and lots and lots of Soundcraft, Mackie, Allen & Heath, Yamaha, and Tascam mixing boards.I see lots of hardware compressors, including one that is similar to pultec that uses tubes.I see lots of synthesizers.I even see an SSL 900 with DAW and computer included.If people are selling these things, is it worth having them?They take up space, they are often redundant, they're "old", etc.I still want to collect quality gear and grow to incorporate analog equipment into my process, but I just wanted others' opinions on this.I would argue that people would not seek out things like the Massive Passive if it was easily outdone by a plugin. The gear has that "something" that strictly digital VSTs just don't. But, I have been wrong many times. And plenty of people do amazing things with nothing but a laptop.Now I'm contradicting myself. What are your thoughts? Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

    Music Shield not playing

    Hello, I have recently purchased some Music Shields and they are not working at all. The Music Shields boards are versions 1.2 and 1.3.I have tried software version 1.14 with Arduino version 022 and version 1.2 with Arduino version 1.0.The both version of the software were installed and compiled according to the instructions in your Wiki according to each Arduino version.With the Arduino 022 version it was tried using Arduino UNO R2 and Arduino R3 boards.With the Arduino 1.0 version it was tried using Arduino UNO R2, Arduino R3 and Arduino Mega 2560 boards SD cards of 2Gb and 128Mb were tried, both non HD types.The SD cards were tested formatted using both FAT 16 and FAT32.Various MP3s were tried at various bitrates.The problem is the same with all tests.The green light of the Music Shield is lit but does not blink. No other light is working. All the buttons are unresponsive, and no music is playing.Opening a serial monitor window does not display anything at all.I would greatly appreciate some support to resolve that issue as I have multiple Music Shields that are totally useless right now as they are totally unresponsive and do not play music. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  6. Hello, I hope I'm doing something wrong and that someone can help me out: I'm surprised that I'm not able to monitor an external synth that is playing back a MIDI sequence from MTS *without* recording the external synth. Here are the details:Set up MTS so that it receives both MIDI and audio from an external synth (you'll need at least two tracks, an Audio Track, so that you can listen to the audio, and a MIDI Track, so that you can record the MIDI).Play your external synth and record the MIDI and/or Audio in MTS. Listen to your performance and realize you suck and need to edit part of the MIDI sequence that you just recorded. :)Now is where the problem starts: it seems that you can't play back the MIDI sequence in MTS and monitor the audio from the external synth without recording the audio. Please tell me I'm wrong! Maybe I just have the monitoring options set incorrectly (but I don't think so). Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  8. Hello, So, I've been reading all I can about how LPGs work, what the point is, etc. Watched some videos, read some articles..I still don't quite get it. Apparently they were (are?) a popular secret sauce. I get what a gate is.. and what a low pass filter is.. but .. I just can't seem to wrap my head around LPGs. i just don't get it .Could someone take a stab at explaining it? Maybe then I can ask questions related to the explanation and can figure out whether I should add one to my synth rack or not. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  12. Hi, I wanted to upgrade the graphics on my old rig for the kids to enjoy. When I press the power button, my led lights come on and the case, cpu, and gpu fans all spin. After about 5 seconds or so the gpu fans quit, with led lights and other fans continuing to operate normally. The monitor remains black and I receive no POST sound. I tested the card in a different rig and it worked fine. When I reinstall my old gpu, the old rig both POST and boots normally. For more details Promotional Marketing Animation
