Re: Good vst or tricks to make a MONO loop STEREO

you can also get an EQ8 and change it to L/R mode and bump different frequencies for each side. the best way to think about making stuff stereo however is that, in a stereo sound, there are different element/frequencies/things on each side. you have to decide what you would like each side to contain...

Re: compressor tick sound issue

The problem with FF1 is that it uses the "Compressor I" mode which I believe Ableton superseded because they said that it doesn't behave as a compressor really should. Hence why they made Compressor II which with a new third mode and the Compressor I mode for legacy purposes, got integrated as one s...

Re: CPU purchase dilemma.. i7 950 vs. Dual Xeon 5520's

Just came back to report.. holy hell. The 950 CPU + SSD makes for a very impressive system! The SSD makes launching any application feel like it's immediate and the i7 950 gives Live more CPU than it know's what to do with. At this point I think if I had spend another $1k on the additional xeon cpus...

Re: CPU purchase dilemma.. i7 950 vs. Dual Xeon 5520's

Thanks for everyone's advice. I ended up getting the i7 950 with an SSD drive. Installing things now, will see how it goes I guess! Syncro, A UAD sounds awesome (excuse the pun) except my main issues are with using copious amounts of Guitar Rig, Decapitator (soundtoys) and the synths I use. It's not...

Re: CPU purchase dilemma.. i7 950 vs. Dual Xeon 5520's

Just get a 930 with a 40$ air cooler and get it over 3.6ghz. 8-cores at 2.2ghz are not gonna help you much. ... A i7 will kick your q6600 ass anyway. I came from there, big difference especially in After Effects and 3d apps. This is pretty sound advice. I'm very into the idea of overclocking, but n...

Re: How can i create a Chuckie style sound

recently ive been (along with many other producers) using a lot less compression and a lot less of anything that rapes dynamics.

its about finding good samples and eq'ing them subtly but just in the right ways.

the deadmu5 xfer kits have some of my favorite kick drums.

CPU purchase dilemma.. i7 950 vs. Dual Xeon 5520's

Hello fellow nerd brethren, I am looking at the next CPU upgrade. I'm tossing between an i7 950 (3.06ghz), 4 real cores or a Dual Xeon 5520 (2.24ghz x 8 cores). I will be mainly using the system with a 32 bit OS for the next year or till Live becomes 64 bit. My main issue at the moment is that I nee...
