Re: Recommend some new soft synths?

I absolutely do not need another VI but Aalto just has something special about it. v1.2 is on the horizon too. YUM 8)

Re: which monitors would you choose

Genelec 8030 or maybe 8020 if they are more suitable Sorry to be a bit spammy - if you decide the 8020 is good for you I have a mint boxed pair of 8020a I am just about to put up for sale and I'm in the west end of Glasgow so that may be convenient! If you were to pick them up I'd ask £280 for the ...

Re: reverb suggestions

I love Live's reverb for making things sound plastic and unreal.. but for a bit of small space ambience/glue or more realistic room verbs I love the new ValhallaRoom, it sounds pretty much on a par with what i've heard from the Lexicon PCM in this respect imho, and avoids the need for an iLok. Barga...

Re: Need another audio interfacer for mixing only.. Quality???

I agree with the low budget for playback plan. I'll throw this out there anyway because I have one, love it, the price was right, its even cheaper now, and you might be able to find other uses for it... http://www.tcelectronic.com/desktopkonnekt6.asp Seconded - it got a bad name initially as the dr...

Re: new laptop is lagging behind 4-year old desktop....why?

Me too! I know there are desktop and laptop variants of the i7 but for what it's worth my friend has an i7 iMac and it is more than 3x faster in the performance test than my 2.8Ghz Core2 iMac. What about some kind of throttling/underclocking on the CPU in the laptop? This type of stuff is quite comm...

Re: new laptop is lagging behind 4-year old desktop....why?

Strange.. might be worthwhile running the Live Performance test that is posted (somewhere) on this forum and comparing their performance using that set? Some strange USB compatibility issue aside, the only reasonable factor would be if you were maxing out the I/O of the drive in your laptop, which i...

Re: Drum racks style note naming?

Use an Instrument Rack, create a chain for each key you are gonna use to trigger the effects and right click in the chain area to enable the option 'Show Names in MIDI Editor' ?

Re: A sub for my 8020s or replace them with 8040s ?

Thanks.

I would LOVE to test both solutions but unfortunately that's not possible.. I will post the question on Genelec's forum too though, thanks for reminding me of that :)

A sub for my 8020s or replace them with 8040s ?

The problem - although I've always been happy with the loudness of my Genelec 8020s, I need deeper bass. I know the Genelec sound and want to stay with them, so I have narrowed my options to.. 1) Add a 7050B Active Subwoofer. 2) Sell the 8020s and buy 8040s. Yes, I'm skipping the 8030s altogether :P...

Re: Sidechaining with fabfilter pro-c

In Pro-C, click 'Expert' then 'Ext' under the Side Chain section - this makes Pro-C declare a set of audio inputs to Live, and you will send your Side Chain key to those inputs. On the track that is being used as the Side Chain key (e.g. a kick), under Live's I/O section, choose 'Audio To' to be the...
