Re: converting audio files to binary, ascii or hex?

Interesting. So how would I go about actually seeing the binary or numerical equivalent of that data? I know nothing about computer science - I'm just looking for a way to "translate" numerical data from random audio files into charts.

Re: New label investing

World Wide digital disribution network. Wish you luck my friend. You're walking into a lion's den. Why's that? hahaha. I knew I would get this response. So, I'm assuming you think it's a bad idea for anyone to start a "label" even if it's purely used as a creative outlet not meant for a serious rev...

Re: New label investing

that's a good idea. Although I have worked in marketing in the past for a dot com company, I guess the music biz is a niche i should explore.

New label investing

I just happened to inherit some money and I'm at liberty to "dabble" in some things I have otherwise missed in the past. I've been considering starting a small boutique label for some time now. I don't expect to make any real $$ from a label as I know it's a pretty dead business. I'm not quitting my...

I dont get it. On the OP you said you were looking mainly for good sounding compression/eq plugins in the Waves/URS/Sonnox vein. Then you say "no, I want f%cked up effects" well then why even mention waves/urs/sonnox... hell why even mention compressors/eq's? Most of the good ones you mentioned don...

actually, I am completely sick of seeing vintage gear emulations. I actually want the most radical weirdest messed up digital effects I can find.

I would buy an eventide or Urei or lexicon if I wanted the real thing. So I guess my question should be - who has the most F%cked up effects?

Decent plugins that don't require ILok?

I have a budget to spend on some good plugns, but it seems like all the ones I want require iLok - URS, Sony Oxford, Waves

Anything recommended out there that doesn't require iLok - looking mainly for compression/eq

I already have wave arts and psp.

Live synched to Machinedrum? Is it possible?

Live just keeps bouncing around +/- 1 bpm when slaved to the MD - every thing is out of time. I have the MkI model. Has anyone else been able to get this to work?

Anyone performing with built-in on Macbook? Adv vrs. Disadv?

I have a lot of hardware to set up for my live shows. Now I'm thinking it might just be easier to run out of the built in. Barring latency issues, are there serious performance or sonic drawbacks to this in a live situation?

Studio Insurance in the USA

Anyone have their gear insured? Any recommendations for doing so?

I estimate I have about $10k worth of gear and it would be a massive bummer if it disappeared one day. Are their any companies that specialize in this or should I just call up state farm or something?

I heard that the CEOs of General Motors and Ford are putting out all those albums - ghostwriting and producing to try and make up for this decade's losses. Why do you think the detroit techno was so hot back in the day?
