Re: APC 40 whining

It's sounds like a ground issue, your power is not properly grounded. Get a power conditioner.

90% of the times I have heard weird sounds from gear or a computer it is a ground issue.

Re: Dream Gear

I'm good about budgeting so I can usually get the 'Dream Gear' I lust after, but next on my list is probably a nice Marshall or Orange tube head and 4x12 cabinet.

Re: OT; Friendship and boundaries

I'm in I.T., and people do NOT hesitate to call me for anything computer related. They just expect me to fix it, and fix it for free. It can be day, night, weekends, holidays; it doesn't matter to them ... and god-forbid I don't immediately call them back because it is such an inconvenience when the...

Re: How Much Should I Pay for Used (perfect condition) VCi-100

Whoops, I meant VCI-100 ... not 300.

You are correct, the 300s sell for between 6-700 usd on eBay.

4 track jam

I made a 20 minute promo for an upcoming live show I'm doing. This was done in one quick and dirty take using Live 8, a Blofeld, and a Snow.

A used VCI-300 goes for around $325 on eBay, and Traktor was $99 new @ Guitar Center not too long ago.

Re: Largo is out!

The Largo is $249 (usd) from Nova Musik, and a reboxed Blofeld Desktop is $499. Personally, I'd much rather pay $499 for a tangible piece of gear than $249 for code ... and that is exactly what I did.

Plus, if anyone really wants the 'Waldorf Sound' they could buy a 2nd hand MicroQ for under $300.

Re: OT: AT&T Data Plans and the iPhone

There is no insurance available for the iPhone, just be careful with it. Applecare will cover a lot of things, but not misuse or abuse.

Re: Question: Ableton 8 remembers Virus TI Patches

No, Live 8 is on an HP notebook running XP. For instance, I'll set Bank 1 to use RAM1 4-5, and lets say that patch is named MorphingPad1. Occasionally when I hit play, something changes that patch to a completely different patch, like Lead1. What is interesting is that it will still show that it is ...

Question: Ableton 8 remembers Virus TI Patches

I have Live 8 and a Virus Snow with OS3. Everything is great, except that Ableton sometimes remembers the patch data for the snow and replaces the patch I am using with one I had previously used. It just automatically replaces the patch. Any ideas as to whether this is Ableton or the Virus OS; or be...

Re: Studio Monitor Noise.

It sounds like a possible GFI issue with your power.

Are your monitors in the same outlet or surge strip? Do you know anyone with a power conditioner you can test with?

Re: Padkontrol for sale- $8000?????

If someone is stupid enough to pay $8k for it, let them. If it doesn't sell (I cannot imagine a scenario where it would sell), it will cost the guy money to keep posting it.

Re: Hardware synth users - please help me figure

It sounds like you have your Nord set to use the stereo outs, so all of your multitimbrals are running through the same 2 outputs on the Nord. Change part one to mono one, and part two to mono two, and you can at least have 2 parts separated.
