Re: Yamaha Pocketrak CX field recorder

The Sound on Sound review is very positive ... and that is at the original (much higher) price. However, I read elsewhere that it is not so good for field recordings due to handling noise. Anyone got one?

If anyone's interested it's "Here come the warm jets"

Re: Films with great NON-electronic soundtracks

"Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid" Bob Dylan
"The WIcker Man" Magnet
"Kelly's Heroes" Lalo Schifrin

Not soundtracks, but Lalo Schifrin's ".... Marquis de Sade" and "Whole Lalo Schfrin Goin' On" albums are also great. And another mention for "Ravenous" soundtrack!

Re: [OT] iTunes library has strange files after consolidation

Thanks for the replies. I think part of the cause may be starting iTunes without the drive attached that has the library. In the past, I'm sure these would just show as 'ghost' files that wouldn't play. Now they seem to have grabbed random files from my MBP hard-drive, and when the external drive is...

[OT] iTunes library has strange files after consolidation

I tried posting this in more appropriate forums, but got no replies. Help me, Ableton forum. You're my only hope. << I've consolidated (iTunes 8.0.2) and notice that some songs won't play any more. When I look at the properties, some of them are pointing to files with the correct name but the incorr...

Are these 7200rpm in a MBP? Will go 5400rpm if heat/noise is too much. I've got 5400rpm at the moment but would like some extra space.

Very interesting. I didn't know about the Seagate - I thought it was just between the Hitachi and the WD Scorpio Black. How's the Seagate going? Any problems? Heat? Noise?

OT: TOO LOUD FOR MBP? Hitachi 7K320 320GB vs WD Scorpio Blk

I already posted this at apple discussions but didn't get any replies from musicians. These have been shipping for a little while now, so have any of you installed and used them yet? I had read that there are noise issues with both of these 7200RPM drives in MBP. If this is indeed the case, then I w...

A slight thread hijack, but has anyone used v-station to create patches for the synth part of an x-station? I understand you can do this, as an x-station is a non-multi-timbral k-station. V-station and k-station patches are compatible. I love the fat presets in my x-station (once they have been de-t...
