New monitor/display

Hey guys, I'm in the market for a new display and want something around 27 inches- Any recommendations?
I was also looking at the apple displays which are priced pretty high....maybe worth the cash?

3rd party drum racks

I just bought a 3rd party pack (drum racks) and it wants me to determine its install destination (mac) but I don't know where that should be :oops: any other packs I've bought have pretty much taken care of this process on its own.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So I still only need to purchase one copy even though one machine is a mac and the other is a windows machine?
Yes, that's correct.

Re: Who's making music standing up?

I don't see myself switching over to standing, but I'm seriously contemplating having a custom desk made next year, which would address all my studio needs at one time/ moving forward.

Re: Album Only

Well artists aren't helping the situation by dropping individual tracks once in a while, without any real immediate follow up album. I like the developing trend of albums dropping out of no where, creates a lot of hype all on its own, if the artist put the work into his previous release(s) I think i...

Re: Who's making music standing up?

I'm still sitting, but I made a concerted effort this year on functionality and comfort: rolling mixer stand , extra long cables, main studio desk, writing desk/station, monitor stands, etc. I can pretty much stay focused and keep my body in comfortable positions throughout my "sessions" My times li...

Re: Let's talk field recorders

I love my Tascam DR40. I've had it for a couple of years, use for everything from field recording to documenting band rehearsals to quick-and-dirty live show recording. The built-in mics are surprisingly good (for plastic POSes), but the fact that you can plug in "real" mics (and even phantom power...

Re: AKAI Advance looks promising, but unfinished...

Yeah the novation boards are definitely worth the time/investment. The novation compact sl is actually one of my favorite boards ever. I opted to go with the mpk249 tho and ditch a bunch of controllers, in attempts to keep my workflow as tight as possible, mind you I work mostly sample based. I hope...

Re: Explain groove box possibilities to me

It was a really cool idea, just too expensive for what it was (compared to say a laptop) for a lot of people I think. Yeah I didn't feel comfortable making the purchase until I could pick one up for $750. I've never really been to interested in drum machines that don't allow you to use your own sou...

Re: Triggerfinger Pro and Arsenal

Already a $200 price drop, sitting at $199. I think that's around the price of the original, if I'm not mistaken.

Re: Explain groove box possibilities to me

Did you see the back of the thing? From the front it looks like a sleek flat surface with the screens and interface items but it's kind of fat, and looks sort of fragile. It basically seems like using a whole computer/midi controller rig. :/ Yeah it's many things, but sleek and flat aren't them :lo...
