    I have my R16 plugged into my computer as an audio interface, and I wanna run my guitar through channel one (hi z) and put it through amplitude for distortion. I have my headphones plugged into my R16 in phones out. I hear the guitar I just cant put it through amplitude, nothing changes in the tone and the tuner isnt even picking it up. This is probably a simple fix and I will feel so stupid im sure.

    Just saw this. What was the issue?

    Likely it was one click. An icon that enables end to end monitoring as opposed to direct monitoring.

    hueseph, which icon is that?

    Well he was wrong, I was using my other computer waiting for parts on one I'm building, and didn't authorize my amplitude in all the confusion. So it wasn't a one click problem

    How do you like your Zoom? I ask because I am thinking of getting a 24 and an i7 laptop and some of those 6" KRK's for a small desktop rig the do song demos, pod casting, playing music back, nothing pro.

    I was looking at them a year or so ago and I was hearing a lot of chatter regarding latency on tracks overdubbed and problems getting them to work correctly.... but i'm thinking those issues have probably been worked out by now. is this thinking correct?

    do you like the sound and the control surface? those faders look mighty short ... but i really like how compact it is... actually perfect for what i need.

    thanks for any thoughts you can offer.

    Kurt, take a look at some of the deals B&H Photo have going online. They have some nice affordable i7 laptops. And I don't know what you found or read but a lot of reviews I read before buying my new one indicated that for audio you want the Intel "Sandybridge" version of i7 CPU.

    Thanks for the pointer. i get the B&H books in the mail all the time so i'll look into this.

    i've been eyeing a (Dead Link Removed)


    even though i want to run Studio One my intention is to adhere to the requirements for PT 10 N Vida card most important. never know if i want to switch to PT although i don't see myself doing it you never know. i like the idea of keeping my options open. the choices are limited.

    Yeah, HP's are sluggish IME (8 years as an IS/IT tech) and while ASUS is reliable, I always found Acer machines to outperform ASUS [laptops]. When it comes to desktops I always favor ASUS mobo's though and can understand wanting NVIDIA for graphics. Since 7200rpm speeds have been available for HD's I've always gone that route but my most recent laptop purchase has a 5400rpm HD in it and I've yet to have any problems tracking or mixing, even with multiple plugs that are cycles hogs.

    Having said that though, I've never run PT on any of my personal machines and have only used PT in a "real" studio environment on Mac's. Most of my experience is in my bedio running machines I've either built myself or had built for me and were built and configured for audio processing. My newest laptop is the only machine I've used for audio (in the last 13 years) that I've purchased "stock".
