Re: Problems using whole numbers (i.e. -22 dB and not -21.7 dB)

Huh? That's crazy talk - seriously, why would you want to go and round up/down all your thresholds etc? 8O If you dragged the sliders, pots and such blindly til they sounded good chances are they wouldn't end up integers. If anything there should be a feature to HIDE the values so you listen rather ...

Re: i found the perfect studio monitors!(Genelec)

Yep get the 8030s, you can always tilt the bass if you find it too much 8)

I have the 8020s and wish I got the 8030s as I could do with just a *bit* deeper bass response and I don't know if I can be bothered with the hassle of a subwoofer..

Audio Unit parameter visibility.. bug or feature ?

If you drag and drop an AU plugin on a track, then unfold the Device Parameters, the parameters are visible as I would expect.. however, if you drag and drop an AU *preset* of the same plugin on a new track, when you unfold the Device Parameters, there are no parameters configured. This is a bit of ...

Re: Post your set up and your sexy cat...

^ Nice! Are those 8020s? Yep, a little bass light but I do love them :D The accuracy of my monitoring is compromised being in a corner/next to a wall, so I bought them with one eye on upgrading to the 8040s once I'm in accommodation where I can have a treated room and proper positioning. Until then...

Re: L8.1.1 - all uhbik 1.1 AU plugins crash Live

Same here, on both Mac OS 10.5.8 and 10.6.2, Live 8.1.1.

Drop any Audio Unit Uhbik on a return in an empty Live set and Live goes 'poof'. HUGE pain in the arse as all my sets use AU plugins 8O

Interesting.. if you use your own grounds - do you have to maintain the machine at all, i.e cleaning, other than replacing the filter when its borked ?

Re: Akai lkp 25 - anybody tried one yet?

The LPK25 feels the same to me, from memory, as the Korg MicroKontrol - if that is similar to the Legacy controller ?

I don't see how they could have made it any better and kept the form factor tbh, although I would have preferred a 37 Key version myself.

Re: [awi] crash with various plug ins

That's a shame :( I spent some time this morning on this issue finally and can reproduce it 100% - the key factor seems to be the Novation ReMote, I notice you have one too.. or perhaps control surface behaviour in general, with FabFilter plugins. With the ReMote enabled as a control surface I can c...

Re: [awi] crash with various plug ins

8.0.5 Final, OS X on an iMac 2.8Ghz C2d here. Still the same crashes for me too - Fabfilter plugins crashing randomly very frequently. Not reproducable really - i.e. the same steps won't casue two crashes in a row, but it can be something as simple as switching off an oscillator in Twin 2. Very disa...
