Re: Which laptop to buy for production and live performance?

For a laptop I would indeed get a macbook pro. The sound card will be more reliable than pc laptops. However for home I would get a good i7 PC with the biggest screen you can afford. Working on a laptop is quite bad. Downside of macbook pro is that Retina is not the best (slower graphics, solved par...

Re: ATH-M50 headphone broken, time to update. Any suggestion?

Is the dt880 box huge? I dont want it to take much place in my luggages...

Problem with the m50 is that it is not an upgrade in sound and I would be cleverer to put that money toward a superior headphone.

Also when I'll be in Canada, the price of the dt880 will probably be higher than in Japan.

Re: ATH-M50 headphone broken, time to update. Any suggestion?

I kinda want the dt880 pro (250) but I'm afraid I am making a mistake as they are semi-open. That mean I might get bothered by ambiant sound, roomates doing noise, coworkers talking...

I might better take another pair of m50...

What about the beyerdynamic dt880?

They are favorably compared to the HD600 which are far more expensive.

but without amp?

ATH-M50 headphone broken, time to update. Any suggestion?

Hi, my m-50 are broken. (one of the ear break out, sad they still work fine!)

Any suggestions for an update? the headphone need to be closed for sound isolation as I will use them in a office/apart with roomates.

under 300$ please.

thanks

Re: M-Audio Oxygen 49 and Ableton Midi mapping?

Hi guys, I want to get this keyboard as it is affordable here in Japan. (most others are 300-400$). I've only used keyboards without buttons so far and was wondering if the sliders and transport mapping is automatic. EDIT: Damn, the Oxygen is not in stock anymore here. I'll have to go with the Alesi...

mpk49...

wtf, the mpk49 is 200$ on amazon.us. However it's 400$ here in Japan. Is that 200$ price even realistic? I just cant believe it. And of course they only deliver in the US... grrrrrrr.

Re: Apple forgets about musicians

Long time ago, staying on the safe side meant to get a mac. Now staying on the safe side is to build your own PC.
