Re: Suggestions for expanding RME Babyface

I was in the same boat a year or so ago and the cheapest option I found was a Behringer unit for about 1/4-1/3 the price of the RME. Mind you I wanted it more for mics and instruments. In the end I went for the Presonus RM16, one of the biggest reasons being the fact that as well as the 16 mic pres ...

Re: Ableton Live 10 Release Date

+1 to the above The only reason I upgraded to 9 from 8 (which I bought as the Suite box for the orchestral samples) was to also buy Push when it first came out. Ableton pretty much lost me when they then suggested I throw my old Push away and pay even more for a new one. These days I mostly use NI K...

Re: Mac V. PC. Age old debate

I made the shift to Mac a few years back and on the rare occasion I have to hand crank my PC desktop I go "OMG", go make a coffee, come back and go "OMG" some more. But seriously there is one thing making me look at Windows again and that is a touch screen. Bought a Presonus RM16 recently and while ...

Re: Jazz guitar sound

I have done a lot of recording in the style you are interested in. The best thing I ever bought, other than a good guitar, was a good sound card. In my case an RME Babyface. Was using an old Tascam US144 (or something) but when I bought a new Macbook I found Tascam had not updated drivers for quite ...

Re: My audio tracks are completely out of sync - any thoughts?

Yes my first though was a latency issue, though it should be the same on both tracks. Bit hard to know how far out "completely" is but have you tried playing around with the little 'Track Delay' setting below at the bottom of the channel strip. (in session view) Little button lower right hand of scr...

Re: IK Multimedia Group Buy

Just one more thing though. If I'm reading the IK web site right, which maybe I'm not, I can get the 4 Quad units for 60 Euro ( and maybe less if I buy and use credits) If that's the case I may be tempted to make two purchases.

Re: IK Multimedia Group Buy

The tape echo is a blast with guitar and I am enjoying exploring the quad band limiter, compressor and imager. Any thoughts on the channel strips for use recording audio in Live? Still undecided as to the price point to buy in at but 80 Euros is looking about right for me. Includes the vintage EQ an...

Re: IK Multimedia Group Buy

Thanks heaps for your words of wisdom fishmonkey. No pain. It just looked like a good opportunity to dip my toe in the water. The heads up on being able to try them through the shop is priceless and I will look into the models you suggested. I realise I would have to pay the most expensive priced pl...

Re: IK Multimedia Group Buy

This caught my eye so I looked here for any info. I am interested in this but could use some help as to what to get. I have Live suite 9 (and Push) but that's it. Never bought a plug in in my life. Where do I start. De-easer and tape echo caught my eye. I mainly use Live for guitar based recording, ...

problems file sharing between intro and Entry level in Live9

Not even sure if this is the right place to post this... But Hi. I am trying to work online with a person with the entry version of Live. I have Suite. We are having problems with the timing of vocal tracks changing radically between versions. This may have something to do with warp modes or maybe j...

Re: Convince me to buy PUSH (or not)

I'm a guitar player and 1/2 assed keyboardist. I bought Push about 3 or 4 months ago, mainly upgrading to Live9 Suite ( I don't use plug ins) to use Push. I have been away from Live for a while and mainly just playing guitar while travelling a bit. Downloaded the 9.1 update a couple of weeks ago and...

Re: has your life taken you where you thought it would?

Hell yeah! I just knew when I was a kid recording songs by some group with the wierdest name ever, 'The Beatles', on a bakerlite open reel tape recorder off a bedside valve radio so I could learn to play them on my beat up old pawn shop acoustic guitar, that when I turned 60 I would be downloading L...

Re: Help wanted: Advice on audio interfaces.

+1 for the RME Babyface. I lashed out on one of these after buying a new MBP and have absolutely no regrets. I'm an old guy and as my Grandfather, who was even older (LOL) used to say. The pleasure of quality lasts longer than the satisfaction of a cheep price. The sound quality is astoundingly cle...
