That is so awesome. Love the way it all turned out. Did you do anything to the floor?

I have the exact same PB replacing a stolen 1GB titanium & it is disgustingly slow. It has been back to Apple twice, had a new logic board & numerous clean OS installs, all to no avail. Can't wait to get rid of it! An Apple IT friend ran some arcane tests in the Terminal and was suspicious of the nu...

For a simple but effective recording use a Stereo Pair of cardiod mics in an X-Y configuration (http://mis15.ncarts.edu/film/yewdall/Web%20Pages-B/05.06-X_Y-miking.gif). You can use a small capsule mic for an application like this. During rehearsals walk around the room and figure out where the best...

I guess what I mean is that the associated audio file is saved someplace else (the manual claims they'd be saved together).

Yeah, ProbablyA Dumb Q, I Know..

I know this is basic stuff but I'm now confused so here goes - I've been importing & warping vinyl into a session & I want to save the clips complete with audio AND the warping/looping info. So I happily dragged & dropped them into a folder into the browser only to find that the saved info is only a...

Try a more directional microphone (even a hyper-cardiod) close up and make sure that you're seated/standing against an adsorbant surface such as a couch (settee/chesterfield or whatever they call that thing in your country).

I've found the same thing - generally it seems that once the sample is dropped into Impulse or Simpler is loses some low end. I've tried mucking around with every adjustment but to no avail.

I think the lines between "electronic" music and "non-electronic" music will continue to blur. Witness the success of The Bodyrockers, a pop/rock album that borrows heavily from the DJ Remix craft. I detect the use of obstentiously electronic music programs like Ableton everywhere now. I think elect...

An earlier version called ProQuill I believe. Factory support was lousy, you were left with the product and a pen knife.
