Re: korg zero 4 recording problem

I gather it doesn't have a HiZ input for gain staging of the guitar input.
Nothing a preamp wouldn't fix before line in I must confess.

Re: The secret benefits of mixing in mono

I generally don't run past 24 Midi Track in total before i start rendering clips to Audio for further use. I also tend to do mix downs of the drum tracks once happy with them other wise I'd never totally commit to certain sonic elements and spend the rest of my life on a never ending tweak fest. Ver...

Re: The secret benefits of mixing in mono

I always mix in mono first. Use zero eq or compression. Tend to go back to synth programming, filter types etc if the sounds lack definition before setting levels. Then I will add eq and compression. Then work on other inserts and fx sends unless the inserts are crucial to the overall track sound an...

Re: How use reason 4 effects in Ableton Live???

There is also a $15 app if you are on the Mac that will batch convert your Apple Loops, Ableton Files etc to Record Format files ready for import with the correct tempo metadata - need top dig the link out I think and will come back with it later for you. (handy utility I must confess).

Re: How use reason 4 effects in Ableton Live???

other than the NNXT route, no way to route audio into Reason UNLESS you own Record.. if you already own reason, I think the update price is fair and running Reason within Record actually takes up less CPU than running Reason by itself. Also, to me, recording audio is easier in Record because of the...

Re: Motif XS Rack and Mlan (Driver Compatibility) iMac

I am in the same boat - been with live from V2-V5 and went to Reason / Logic. Logic isn't really my bag. V8 with XS Rack + Prophecy (Largely for PM leads) and Fusion 8HD for FM and VA would be ideal and I'd drop the cash on the Suite and probably ditch Reason 4. I know the editor can be used in Stan...

Re: Motif XS Rack and Mlan (Driver Compatibility) iMac

If there are major issues I can do the following. 1.Keep the Apogee Duet 2.Use the Editor for the XS rack in Standalone Mode 3.Sequence the XS via the Built in USB / Midi Port 4.Keep my Mixer and just route my Fusion 8HD and XS rack through the mixer into the Duet ( cheaper option and I know it work...

Motif XS Rack and Mlan (Driver Compatibility) iMac

I am looking at selling my PC Notebook (trusty old Toshiba). Own an iMac but haven't upgraded Live since Version 5 ( bought Live 2 through 5 ). Been using Reason on the iMac but want to keep my MPD32 and get 2 x Novation Launchpads. Will be getting Live 8 Suite and Max 4 Live but will be replacing R...

I don't like it when musicians are being sarcastic.
