PA Quality in clubs

I have been in a few dance clubs recently for the first time in years – anyway, in the places I have been to I have noticed that the quality of the sound really sucks big time. It seems that the DJs (I didn’t notice any laptops in their kit) like so many DJs I have seen in the past, push their outpu...

there should be a mode of operation in some OS, which would basically stop 'everything' and completely devote all its energy into running a single way.. i went from windows 95, to windows XP ...when I saw the spec of the laptop I was salivating, imagining what kind of performance I'd get. Then powe...

Seeing as you're in the US, I would check out the m-tech laptops... www.m-tech.com. They look pretty good and they are configurable, unlike the Toshibas etc - which probably cost an arm and leg to re-configure I am looking at Intel duo core/ati radeon graphics, 7200 rpm drive etc. Course I am not in...

Hi Folks,

Yeh eisnein, good point about scrolling thru scenes. When I first started using the FCB, I couldn't get a good handle on the physical pedals and I skipped a couple of scenes onstage........ :roll: plus you have to use two pedals to play a scene (one for select and another for play) and sometimes the...

Everytime I try to program the FCB1010 I get a message asking me if I want to override my previous midi assignment. I want to set up each bank of 10 pedals to trigger a different slot in session view. For instance, I want to trigger the first 10 slots in bank 00 from pedal 1-10. Then I want to be a...

Loophead, Yes, I also do stuff in 4.1 - sound design for theatre. I found that the center channel was next to useless in theatre situations. I haven't done any mixing in 5.1 for film where the dialog gets used a lot in the centre channel, however. 4.1 for me has basically been quad with an LFE for e...

One workaround is to rewire Live through Cubase/Logic/whatever and use the surround panning in that application. Obviously would be great if 5.1 gets implemented in Live 6.

I would imagine you'll head for Florianopolis in Santa Catarina if you are heading south and wanna do a coastal thing. Fairly hip and active zone - less busy now (better) now that carnaval is over. Nice city, lots of beaches - and babes. Unless you really want to see the falls and don't mind a very ...
