Distortion: Hot Cake (Made by crowther audio in NZ) Delays: Boss DD-20 (this is a completely different beast to most digi delays - it sounds as nice as my ye olde Boss analog DM-100) Those are the only 2 pedals that I whole heartedly recommend - I own quite a few other pedals but they all have thing...

Macdrive is great, but there were (not sure if there still is) a few quirks regarding ejecting disks and stuff like that. Also, last time I used it MD wasn't 100% compatible with Journalled HFS+ volumes, so if you want to use it with MD you will have to make sure it is Non-Journalled HFS+. At the en...

I'm an engineer (of the non-musical kind) so I'll give Behringer a big fat finger. I just did a bit of reason on their design practices, and the likes of them can suck a fat one. Anyone got a better suggestion then the Alesis M1 MKIIs (at that price point) keeping in mind my requirements? - Must be ...

You fell into GWB and crews well crafted deception plan. Possibly, but hindsight is 20/20. There's a LOT of people (not just Americans) who believed the Iraqi WMD thing back in 2003; I'm by no means alone. Further, I think that it was 50% wishful thinking and 50% impatience that resulted in the fai...

Tannoy actives price: $1589 M1 MKII price: $599 That's AU dollars. They sound like they are very good at giving you a better idea of what's going on in the upper-midrange area, but are they really worth 3 times the price? Especially considering that music is very much just a hobby for me? I will als...

OK, from all the reading and feedback I've done in the past few days, it looks like the Truths are not going to be the answer for real acoustic instruments - the most common complaint I've heard is that there is a lack of upper mid clarity. I do a lot of guitar work, so obviously that's going to be ...

Wow. These threads are always interesting for insight into your fellow Ableton user.

M Breqs: you claim to know so much about global politics yet you also say you believe that Iraq had WMDs pre-invasion. Does not compute!? 8O

After telling them that I already had a mousepad, they said they'll send me a beanie too!

Thanks abes!

The abes just got back to me - they messed up and hadn't actually sent my order yet. Grrrrrrr!

They are going to chuck in a mousepad and a lanyard.... small consolation I guess. I already have an ableton mousepad, and I don't really use or need a lanyard.

I ordered EIC+L6+Sampler on 1st December, and have yet to see anything here in Melbourne, Australia.

From memory, L5 took about 2.5 weeks. I've never had to wait more then 3 weeks for ANYTHING from overseas before, so I'm getting a bit worried....

Do not listen to the usual "Stay away from cheap Behringer products" arguments becaus these are BS prejudices. Especially regarding the Truth monitors because they are actually very good monitors for the money. I've listen for days in shops comparing them to every other monitor in the price range a...

Anyone used Behringer Truth monitors?

I'm looking at monitors at the mo - and the Behringer Truth B2031As seem to be pretty much right on my budget. Has anyone here used them? What are they like for producing? Mixing? General listening? They have EQ switches on the back which is a nice touch - my room certainly has some bass-oddities in...

I know this is a pretty damn vague, subjective question, but what sort of sounds are in the preset pack? Atmospheric synth sounds? Lead/pad/brass/normal-FM-stuff? Presets that sound like normal instruments?

What sort of music are you guys using these for?

Hiya mechcon (I got your PM on MTAU), Why don't you put each song in it's own .als file? Am I missing something? Wouldn't it be better to have each song as multiple tracks within a single .als? Or maybe just bounce your entire mixes down to AIFF and then make some clips out of that in Live? I'm not ...
