Re: Geist as VST in Ableton

The Engines in Geist are assigned to different midi channels so if you wanna trigger engine 2 all you do is create another midi track & route the midi output of it to the track with Geist & select midi channel 2. So if your using all 8 engines you'd have to have 8 separate midi tracks routed to Geis...

Re: OH NO Not the Dreaded "Which Monitors" Question again!!

GENELECS EVERTIME There seem to be a lot of Genelec fans here but there's a few reasons I went for Adams over Genelec. The main one being that the equivalent to the A5X's which is the 8030a's are over £300 more expensive & on paper at least don't have as much low end as the A5X's. I've also read a ...

Re: OH NO Not the Dreaded "Which Monitors" Question again!!

I ended up getting a pair of Adam A5X's. So far I'm very impressed with them, I only have them about a week now so they'll take a wee bit of getting used to (I'm pretty comfortable with them already though) but I'll tell you what, they sound waaayyyy better than the Behringer B2031P's I had.

Re: Crazy D Beat Bounce (Oldskool lofi-ish DnB influenced tune)

Just did a bit more work on this track, I think I'm starting to get used to the Adam A5X's (just got them last week)

Re: OH NO Not the Dreaded "Which Monitors" Question again!!

Well, I've only just recently purchased them and I have used them on one track so far. Tbh, I think they found fantastic. Yeh, they are Rokit 6s. The highs are particularly good. I toyed with getting the Mackie MR5s; it just came down to what I could find a better deal on. I might consider the Rock...

Re: OH NO Not the Dreaded "Which Monitors" Question again!!

i can assure you the Yamaha HS80Ms aren't harsh or fatiguing. the HS80s are still on my list the HS series do get a lot of high praise online but how much better would they be than the Behringer B3021Ps I already have? (the Behringer Truth series has actually gotten some pretty rave reviews over th...

Re: OH NO Not the Dreaded "Which Monitors" Question again!!

One other option I'm considering is the Mackie MR5s

Has anyone used or owned these?

I've read a lot of bad reports of over hyped low end, & that they're not the best for mixing IE. they don't translate well to a domestic setup. Do you have the Rokit 6s, how are you finding your mixes on them?

OH NO Not the Dreaded "Which Monitors" Question again!!

I'm using a set of Behringer B2031Ps powered by a Marantz Integrated Amplifier (I know I should really be using a proper power amp with these) & while they have served me well enough over the past 3 or 4 years or so, I think its time to get a set of Active Monitors. Mixing will be the main purpose f...

Re: Focusrite scarlett 8i6 or NI Komplete Audio 6??

After a few gigs on stage I can say I'm very happy with the Scarlett. I have an older machine (core 2 duo 4 gigs ram) so I'm sure newer stuff could achieve even lower latency. Still 6.0 ms is perfectly fine for me. Both units seem to have the same available ins/outs. They come with different softwa...

Re: Focusrite scarlett 8i6 0r NI Komplete Audio 6??

OK so this thread was originally about deciding between the Focusrite Saffire 6 & the MOTU Micorbook. But through some more investigation/googling :) I've narrowed it down to the Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 & NI's Komplete Audio 6 because I think these reasonably new audio interfaces would offer more of ...

Re: Focusrite saffire 6 or Motu Microbook??

Ok so I'm torn now between the Microbook & the Scarlett 8i6 :) I have the microbook and it comes with an adapter for using XLR. I bring it to work when I need to record teachers for a book we are working on. The sound is great and the damn thing is metal and is light as a feather. The version of cue...

Re: Focusrite saffire 6 or Motu Microbook??

Thanks for the very detailed description of your setup Sub. I was intending to stick to a usb bus powered interface, the Scarlett 8i6 looks very close to the same size as the Saffire 6. Would you say its much more of a hassle having to plug the Scarlett in to power it, rather than doing it over usb?

Re: Focusrite saffire 6 or Motu Microbook??

Thanks for the input Sepp I really appreciate it. Unfortunately I cant demo them because well my local music store is a bit crap really & as far as I know doesn't stock any audio interfaces. So I generally have to go on reviews & whatever else I can find out on the net. For some reason there's very ...
