Re: NI classic comps

why haven't they emulated the Alesis 3630??? isn't it a classic now? where's the $200 UAD or Waves emulation of that $100 piece of discontinued hardware? DiscoDSP tried that in the past with a plug-in called "Nightshine" and I thought it was a nice compressor that colors the sound and gives you tha...

Re: shoegaze/dream pop sound

Shoegaze... Is that what they call that brooding, UK New Wave sound from the 80's nowadays? I was big on Jesus and Mary chain back then. Also seldom heard/obscure bands like The Lotus Eaters, the Wild Swans and pre-Lightning Seeds The Care. Thank you to the original poster for making me aware of thi...

I got a Dell Laptop for financing, email and Office duties, got a Mac Mini in the kitchen ...

Re: what cables to get for yamaha hs80 monitors???

I purchase all my cables at Monoprice.com. Extremely well built and priced so low that you'd never buy another cable at a retail store like Bestbuy. What you need is a XLR Male to 1/4inch TRS Male cable (pair). They have them at different lengths and priced at $3.50 for the shortest (1.5ft.) and $15...

Re: Macbook Pro 2.66GHz or 2.8GHz?

so the consensus is to stick with 2.66GHz and applecare? I'm planning to run Logic/Live 8 with this machine btw. As far as the RAM, I might just get the stock 4gig and purchase 8gigs from OWC. If I install it myself, doesn't that void the warranty? Also, the anti-glare LCD mentioned previously, is t...

Macbook Pro 2.66GHz or 2.8GHz?

Saved up enough cash to purchase a Christmas gift for myself. Will be getting a 17" Macbook Pro 8gig RAM, 7200RPM 500Gig HD. Is there a big performance difference between 2.66GHz compared to 2.8GHz? Or should I spend the extra $200 towards AppleCare?

Re: Leeds' compressor review - Cytomic 'The Glue'

I've been using Cytomic's "The Glue" for over a year now. It's the only third-party compressor I use. Prompted me to get rid of my original Mackie UAD1 card.
