do you ever find that clicking a pad rapidly while audition is on produces variations in the tones that drumular is generating? i'm pretty sure that it's not just in my head, but i've certainly been wrong before. not that i'm particularly worried about it; just trying to understand how it works and ...

no one who was into that wishes an audio-app to run under linux again. also someone will have to write proper 1394 driver for all the third party audio boxes. trust me, m-audio and the like will never touch linux, not even with a 10 foot pole dude, m-audio and rme are widely recognized as the 2 bes...

Re: solid state hard disks

i was looking at quoted 57mbps read, 32 write for the manufacturer in question), and i got to thinking: does that negate the need for multiple hard drives for audio work? that's quite a bit slower than a hard drive though right? firewire starts at 400 mbps....SATA starts at 1500 mbps and ATA is aro...

yeah, the 999 looks sick as all frck, but $1800 srp? good god! that's the kind of thing that my low-level programming PREVENTS me from lusting after because it would threaten my survival (you know, by severely limiting my resources and all?) it's an evolutionary thing.
