Hey Thanks! Got the lights from Ikea. I'm not sure it's for the Lack or Expedit series.

Re: iMac 27: Your thoughts please

Hey unkleage... I was in a similar situation like you a couple of months ago.  I was checking out a mac system as a requirement for a course I wanted to take.  Like you, I've been a PC user since way back in the day.  Most of my music software is crossplatform so no biggie when I ultimately decide ...

The 1212m is an excellent sounding card. I'm still using Emu's 1820m (1212m with the 1820m audiodock) to
this very day and have no need to replace them. Sounds excellent to me.

Re: Are there 8x8 midi USB interfaces with win 7 64bit drivers?

Midex-8 doesn't even work with 32 bit Vista, let alone 64 bit Win 7. Pity - it was the best MIDI interface ever released, it 's LTB protocol was the tightest thing even with Windows crappy MIDI protocol. And a 900 dollar paperweight for those who invested in it. That's why i'm still on XP running L...

Re: Producing House Music with Ableton Live: Bass & Synth

Purchased it a couple of days ago. Like the first one (House Drums), there's a wealth of info here that anybody can apply to their productions. The "Sequence Using Your Voice" is pretty amusing. But I do agree it works. I know this tutorial is primarily synth based, but I wish you could've included ...

Re: electrix filterqueen

I had a Filterfactory (big brother to the Filterqueen)for years. The one thing I didn't like about it was the fact that when operating in 4 pole mode (24dB slope), the unit summed up both left and right channel and operates in mono mode instead of stereo before going thru the filter. Although it ope...

Re: Have a professional master your songs, do it yourself?

I recently won a remix contest and the producer wanted to include my mix for a compilation. He asked for the premaster and if I compare my "mastered" version to the one included in the compilation, my version pretty much sucked balls! I am now a true believer that to have someone else with a fresh s...
