Re: Live 32-bit to be discontinued

And stringtapper, I HAVE TO switch to 64 bit or I will be suspended from bugfixes and updates. I hate to be the one to break this to you, but Live 9 is most likely reaching the end of its life cycle. So if you stay with Live 9 you're going to be locked out of those things anyway by virtue of using ...

You don't HAVE TO do anything. I know people who still keep a PPC Mac around just to run OS 9 so that they can use obsolete software.

Re: MacOS 10.3 High Sierra & Max for Live incompatibility Issue

Just one more reason they need to roll Max into Live's code and abandon the separate app scheme.

(I can't believe M4L is eight years old now!)

Re: Proudly collecting music gear and software for no purpose

Last week I had a Moog Mother-32 delivered. After only an hour with it I ordered a second and the three tier rack kit for next-day delivery. :oops: Looks like I have finally been bitten by the modular bug (ok, semi-modular). For a couple of days the coffee table looked like a synth had exploded on i...

You can, and people do. There's a rack version of the X32 that can be controlled via an iPad app. Same for other boards like the PreSonus.

Re: When the output is balanced...DI Box?

Depending on the instruments, and their impedance (Lo or Hi Z). Roughly: electric guitars and basses DI. Acoustical with piezo and pre-amp DI. Synthesizer and electrical organs and piano's straight in. But most importand is to find out the impedance if it's hight impedance (Hi Z) or low impedance (...

Re: Question for the sound guys...

Is that board simply a controller much like some pianos are simply controllers and nothing more? No, the X32 is an actual mixer. It has 32 on board inputs and you never have to use the digital snake at all. But with the snake it becomes extremely convenient because you only have a single small-gaug...

Not necessarily.

The first two channels (leftmost) on the 18i8 are mic/line/instrument combos, so you can plug (for example) a guitar directly in.

Re: When the output is balanced...DI Box?

TRS–>XLR cables should be all you need to go from the Focusrite to your monitors.

You don't need anything else between your mic and the Focusrite pres unless you don't like the sound of them and want to use an outboard preamp.

Re: Question for the sound guys...

What you describe is already happening.

I've worked several venues that use the Behringer X32 and all of its satellite components like the S16 digital snake. The snake sits on stage where the sound sources plug in and all you have is a single Ethernet cable going to the board.

Re: Proudly collecting music gear and software for no purpose

Now I'm thinking of going for Komplete 11. The upgrade is on sale to Kontakt owners for $199.

I really only want Reaktor 6, The Giant, and Una Corda, and buying those separately would be $450.

That's exactly the same thing I say to myself every time I finalise an order.

Re: Proudly collecting music gear and software for no purpose

I bit the bullet and got Omnisphere 2 over the weekend to add to my live keyboard rig. Damn that thing sounds good. 8O Also pre-ordered a Nord Stage 3 Compact 73 for when it comes out next month. Rig should be more than complete after that. http://www.nordkeyboards.com/sites/default/files/files/prod...
