    Multi Effects Pedals/Rack Units

    Im looking into hardware effect units (stereo ) and wondering whats out there i havent seen or thought about. I really thought the Eventide H9 Max was the bomb until i found out that it only can have one algorithm at a time and not stacckable (unless buying more units). There is plenty of...

    Massive X is Out!

    yeah.. that AVX crap is a pita. its a developers basically saying: 101000101010010010101010 to musicians/users and them having to figure out what it is. I had no idea of avx. and i think most users also don't give a craps ass. i think i saw some info on the threads on forums when 1st released...

    ADHD medications that don't kill inspiration

    there was a lot of that indeed in the forums. i bought the main ones from racetams type of nootropics and tried them individually. but there is little to no effect. from piracetam to aniracetam it was hard to get a feeling for them. and not sure if it was a thing where you conciously dont feel...

    Poll: Should Apple release a model between the Mac Pro and the Mac Mini?

    that mac mini is very good for about 90% of music producers. if you go to forums outside of film template type geeks.. then 64gb of ram is still seeing as kinda not really necessary. and not even mention gamers. the mac pro fills that 10% left. that the junkei xl template level type of...

    Anyone using Roland V-Synth for sound design?

    Sonuscore's "The Orchestra Complete" and new "Strings of Winter" library

    from what i remember the main issue most people had was the lack of mic positions. so maybe its that? from the images , maybe its more older type of instruments?

    Noob Question: how can I tell what is 32- vs 64-bit software

    the 32 bit plugins i use with 32 Lives to make them 64 bit are altiverb 6. adrenaline sync and i think even though camel audio space and phatt are 64 bit, seems they will not work with catalina. but are now native in logic.

    Anyone using Roland V-Synth for sound design?

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    LogicPro + VEP and AU3

    oh.. but each port is still limited by 16 midi channels? so what are the advantages that wherent there before? i thought it was like in cubase that each port (one VEP plugin insert) would be able to load up to 64 midi channels (max of instruments in kontakt). thus, reducing the amount of port...

    Mac Pro Memory upgrade to 128GB

    DAW and other apps also use ram. so if you have ram for samples and load big templates then not only the ram for samples will be load but also leave some wiggle room for apps to use the extra ram. but its a lot so depends. but i was contemplating the same, the 128gb kits for the mac pro 5,1 is...

    Cheesegrater mac is back!

    we might be sayign the same thing... thats what i was saying but i might focused too much on the cpu. the main goal with the mac pro is for high end video work and high end rendering etc. and post audio. basically competing against the HP they mentioned in the presentation. no one is arguming...

    Cheesegrater mac is back!

    agree... but i think the i7/i9 type of builds are mostly geared towards gamers and beat music production. (large scale overview, no orchestral) so apple decided to skip that and offer two solutions... the very high end like HP w crazy xeon cpu and for gamers... not xbox type gaming but getting...

    ill be interested to see the benchmarks against what most poeple do with their builds at $1200 or so. sure looks expensive for the base price but several times there have been comparisons using the same components and its about the same. the mac pro is def going after the high end video market...

    Cheesegrater mac is back!

    the video in the presentation showed a big space for ram. im guessing hard drive as well. im not sure about the cpu. we who waited a year after the old cheesegrater mac got to be able to replace the old cpu. so im guessing this one might be betterwait and see for that.

    oh man.... tempting. i was thinking of an mac mini which seems great but if a better mac pro trashcan comes around at a similar price id go for that. i think the new mac pro is a bit much for me now. but i can see many here going crazy about 1000+ tracks inside a daw with no VEP or slave...
