Same here. To me, Vegas is the fastest, most elegant and well-thought out media editing software, and I pretty much tried everything. It was missing some work-flow stuff that Live has, like fast envelope drawing (instead of double clicking), recording automation, machine control. Now it looks like ...

Regarding mouse functions, I'm still trying to figure out which idiot at companies other than Sonic Foundry thinks that mouse scroll wheel zooming is a bad usablity idea. Because that guy needs to be severely flogged. That is SO true mate. It makes such a difference to the experience. Just that one...

Vegas definitely turned into a Video application, even though it had very good audio capabilities. It led the way for automation envelopes within tracks long before any other application. However, it stayed away from midi which really killed it as an option for me. I'm glad Acid is catching up. I a...

Does Acid 6 provide some of the same performance features of Live (i.e., scene triggering, etc.), or is it still primarily a studio tool? Thank you! It's primarily a studio tool, but that's cool. For some reason, if it were anything more, I'd feel it would lose a little something, if that makes any...

Me. I love the program and while there are so many things that can be done in live that you can't do in acid, I'm just a lot quicker with acid for arrangement aspects of tracks, with both one shots and bounced loops than I am in live. It's totally gotta do with how long I've spent with either progra...

OS X 10.4.5 on Vanilla Intel Boxes

Hi guys,

I'm not sure on the sensitivity of this topic, but who has toyed with maxxuss's OS X 10.4.5 on their PC/Laptops and can you post results on the experience?

Apparently an "easy to install" version is in the works according to maxxuss's blog, which all sounds pretty exciting!

Hey there, Sounds like a file system limitation. Can you record to an NTFS drive perchance? You shouldn't have these problems if you are using NTFS. FAT32 has a size limitation of 4GB PER file, while NTFS can have single files up to just under 16 "exabytes"! If you'd like to read the nitty gritty, c...

Yup, dual boot XP works great, and that's what I'm running here. With my "daw" boot, I've disabled services I genuinely won't be needing, and performance is definately noticeably better. It's also nice to know that technically, not much can go wrong in terms of software incompatibilities and clashes...

Perth mate! :D

But I haven't lived in Perth going on 4 years now, and I definately wasn't using live at that time. Hell, I just got into Cakewalk Pro Audio in 98 haha

But yeah, does my "used to live in Australia" status still apply? :lol:
