Re: Dave Smith Tetra - who has one? Thoughts?

I wouldn't. Same price range as the SEM. http://www.audiomidi.com/Synthesizer-Expander-Module-with-MIDI-to-CV-Panel-P12454.aspx Guaranteed the SEM is fatter sounding, better filters etc. No slight on Dave Smith, nice stuff, just Oberheim is in a class by himself. For a little more the CV version is...

Why not use an oxygen8 keyboard (with velocity) to trigger clips.

Re: it's official, next year I don't upgrade till it's stable

NEVER to buy/upgrade until the forum complaints have dropped off completely. not sure if that's the right strategy; this forum does not represent Live's whole userbase and complaints are always louder than praise.. allthough that is true. i found forums to be most of the time pretty well representa...

Re: decided to buy windows xp

yes, best to use the vista drivers. the compatibility mode in win7 works really well. right mouse click, properties,compatibility, choose vista. one problem with m-audio driver for the delta series is that your comp doesn't shut down anymore. but this will be remedied in a next driver update, and th...

Re: FINALLY ! Wacom Support in 8.0.2 -> Big Thanks

Be careful of the tablet size. Personnaly I think that too big tablet are tiring. For a 20 to 24 inchs display the intuos 4 A5 wide is ideal. what he said.. larger tablets (A4) are only useful for when you're going to do drawings in photoshop and stuff like that.. so you guys are saying i bought th...

Re: FINALLY ! Wacom Support in 8.0.2 -> Big Thanks

cool. is it possible to develop applications for this thing (guess this is a stupid question, of course it must be!)? there is a lot of creative potential with these tablets. the smooth touch sensitivity seems just begging to be used for modulation: filtersweeps, dry/wet efx settings, triggering stu...

Re: am i the only one who isn't excited about the apc40

Love hate 8 dead sliders = no use whatsoever. a crossfader (which I never use), and in the worlds most awful position. no little screens means I still must look at the laptop to try and make some logical connection between what these lights represent. Hey ... lets play the new scene called, um "red...
