Re: Do you use a streaming music service? Which and why?

I listen to a lot of music podcasts on iTunes, mostly a DJ mixes. It's all free and already preselected by host DJs.
If there is something I really like I buy it on iTunes/Bandcamp/Beatport and keep it forever.

Re: APC40

I have seen this on my APC40, I believe the encoders are dirty inside and they are sending ghost midi values sometimes.
You may call it 'analogue warmth' or hardware problem. I call it free running random LFOs :lol:

Re: DAC/AMP for Focal Spirit Professional (mixing and mastering)

I don't like volume control on 2i4. You can hear nonlinear volume gains in left or right channels especially when using low volume. DA-300 has one rotary encoder for volume and the gain is done I believe in digital domain. I also tested DA-10 for more mobile setup but the volume control was the same...

Re: Dithering in Ozone 7

Isn't that Ozone uses 64-bit depth internally during calculation, so in theory every time you dump an audio you should dither?

Taken from "Dithering in Ozone" guide:
"... This precision is one of several reasons that Ozone can take a lot of CPU, and uses 64-bit calculations internally."

Re: DAC/AMP for Focal Spirit Professional (mixing and mastering)

I've just got a headphones. Wow.. I can now hear details I was not aware of.
I will definitely buy a D/A converter, Focusrite 2i4 is completely unsuitable for this job.

Re: DAC/AMP for Focal Spirit Professional (mixing and mastering)

What is the minimum price range you would consider in regards to mixing and mastering? That 500$ is not a hard limit but rather an initial thought. I don't want to buy a "toy" DAC and later on replace it with something else.

Re: DAC/AMP for Focal Spirit Professional (mixing and mastering)

That's way too much for me. I'm not sure what is the right balance between price and quality for DAC/AMPs.
Let say my budget is around 500 USD at this moment.

DAC/AMP for Focal Spirit Professional (mixing and mastering)

I just ordered Focal Spirit Professional headphones.
Do I need a dedicated DAC if I already have Focusrite Scarlett 2i4? If so, which one would be good enough? :)
The main usage will be mixing and basic mastering of my own stems.

Push 2 with V Collection 4

Does anyone use Arturia V Collection 4 plugins on Push 2? I wonder how many control you have over those synths.

9.5 Simpler - export slices to audio files?

Is it possible to export slices from Simpler to audio files in one step?
I can crop every single slice, but it's very time consuming :|
