Re: Thunderbolt Audio Interface

Just my opinion here, but to make any of the existing interfaces thunderbolt-ready would be a waste. Thunderbolt is a way more capable protocol than any of the interfaces available today could possibly take advantage of deeming it totally unnecessary at the moment. It would make more sense to just u...

Re: Live and power conditioner issue?

I would suggest the same as Luddy has.. Only the computer and any external hard drives plugged into the UPS. Have one main power conditioner plugged into the wall outlet. I use a Monster Power 3500 for my main conditioner. Then run any secondary conditioners into that. For my secondary conditioners,...

Re: Putting all the pieces together (my dj/production gear)

[quote="Illuminator"]Grant, my jaw dropped to the floor when i looked at your setup. That is beyond SICK!!/quote] Seriously?? It is quite common around here to see setups similar or far surpassing that. No offense to Grant bla bla bla.. but that is not nearly as spectacular as some of the shit with ...

Re: New Macbook Pros

If firewire weren't on it's last leg then companies like Motu, RME, and Apogee wouldn't be focusing their efforts on USB audio technology and making most of their latest offerings either USB or Hybrid USB/Firewire. The two higher-end companies that seem to be sticking with firewire for now are Prism...

Re: Some computer performance questions: Mac OS versus Windows

RME "pro Mac", that is such infantile accusation. Companies like RME are only "pro" their own interests, profits nothing else. I posted the link just to point to something from real life, not just some amateurish tests that are hardly representative and/or of any value. Those infected with Mac fan/...

Re: Some computer performance questions: Mac OS versus Windows

yes that's it... a grudge. what exactly am i holding a grudge over? a biased test done 3 years ago on differing setups using an OS that "just works" versus another OS that many people agree was very bloated and should have never existed just before windows 7 was released??? and you don't see anythin...

You can get entertained by a troll, or someone who`s friend has a Mac or read what professionals say on the subject http://www.rme-audio.de/en_products_fireface_uc_systems.php?page=content/products/en_uc_general or... you can be a total moron and point to tests that were done 3 years ago using old ...

Re: Time for a new windows laptop for Ableton

I can understand not going the mac route given they are fairly over-priced still, but i don't understand the mentality of completely skimping on what is the centerpiece of your setup. not knocking your decision to go i5 or windows pc. just saying you should spend more than $1K if you want a good per...

Re: Time for a new windows laptop for Ableton

well since you don't seem to have a maximum dollar amount you'd like to spend... at least this is what I'm assuming since you asked for opinions yet didn't state anything about money. go for an HP elitebook workstation with an intel i7-2860qm like i did.. get the 17" full hd with backlit keyboard an...
