Re: Apple forgets about musicians

[quote="Pasha"]Just another rant. This slipped through.. New iMacs do not have FW800 ports. Only USB 3.0 this means that 1) The audio industry has to adapt to new standard (in theory faster but still less reliable in sustained mode) 2) All Audio cards that we have on 'old' FW800 Standard will not wo...

Re: Q for iMac owners: .i5 vs. i7 with Live 8

Well, the difference of $450 is not only the CPU ... that is the whole system in that case, no? You have a different graphic processor, and more limitations with the smaller variant. personally I think i7 is the way to go if you do not want to buy a new Mac next year ... i7 will last a bit longer. B...

Re: Mainstage with Ableton - First Thoughts

[quote="kanuck"] but some 3rd party plugins are better than all of these. If you really love ableton's workflow and only want to switch to logic for their plugins consider just choose a great piano plugin instead of switching your entire daw.[/quote] might be a matter of taste, but I did not find an...

Re: Mainstage with Ableton - First Thoughts

[quote="milfhuntr"] I just played the Ableton piano back to back with the Apple piano and bass, etc. I played some drums on the Ultrabeat and also the drum rack. There is no comparison. The Apple piano simply sounds like a real piano. The acoustic instruments sound real. The Ableton sounds sythetic....

Re: Logic Pro 9 for $199. Futher pressure to lower prices?

[quote="Machinesworking"] Mainstage includes all of Logic's instruments! :) You can either Rewire Mainstage into Live etc. and of course lose the ability for Live to host thrid party instruments and let Mainstage handle that.... or you can use AIC and Soundflower to route Mainstage to Live and just ...

Re: Logic Pro 9 for $199. Futher pressure to lower prices?

[quote="Machinesworking"][quote="Tarekith"] A lot of people seem to forget this isn't some sale Apple is running, it's the new price for Logic. There's no rush to buy it this week, or next. Personally I'd be waiting to see what the next version of Logic brings (hopefully a LOT of changes) before I d...

it looks ok - though until now I was more than underwhelmed by the sound of the other emulations (Jupiter esp.)

Re: Propellerheads "Name Your Own Price" upgrade...thoughts?

Well, this is totally unrealistic ... Ableton does not have that condition that they merge two products into one for which previous customers payed separately. If you have Live and some instruments and you upgrade to suite you get a discount. So, if you ask such a question you should explicitely tel...

Control M4L patch elements with Clip Envelopes?

Hello,

is it possible to control M4L UI Controls with Clip Envelopes? Or am I supposed to use MIDI for that?

Thanks

Re: Logic Pro X

Well, for me the best things in Logic - without any comparison: UltraBeat, SpaceDesigner (the synthetic IRs), delay designer, a little bit Sculpture. evb3 and the clavinet are ok, but there are alternatives. envreverb is great idea, but would need some good algorithms. exs is ok for its efficiency, ...

Eventlist would be possible if you transfer the MIDI to Max, or, of course, if you use the Max part to record and edit MIDI. The only thing that seems impossible - do not know ...
