    Why is it?
    That when I first start the recording process, in Acid..... I get this 6db "noise"? It happens everytime.

    I found a "workaround" by copying the name of the track...... Starting the recording..... Canceling it and then restarting it, under the same name. Fixes it every time. :)
    And, actually, this isn't much of a problem.

    This board hasn't had very much traffic of late and I'm wondering if anyone has had the same "problem" and/or knows why it does this.

    Hopefully, this will get a little "action" going in my beloved SF board.

    Hey.... my qestion may be stooooopid.... But, at least, I didn't come skipping in here singing the "La la laaaaaa" song :)

    PS Be SURE to use the Control Panel-Add/Delete function to do this, NOT just delete it from your drive or desktop shortcut. But you KNEW THAT, right?

    Yup........ know that little trick, thanx to our honorable moderator. ;)
    Did that already..... same thing comes up!?

    I'll be waiting, with baited breath, for the CD!!

    Oops.... didn't send them out today... but definitely, tomorrow.(dayjob thing)

    Baited breath huh? Are you sure your breath doesn't smell like bait? ;)
    'Specially with the interludes you are sooooo proud of? :p

    <off topic>I remember someone saying they had system crashing problems, when using Vegas, when I read this board this A.M. Probably another topic but I'm sure I read it somewhere.

    I use Acid as my multi-track app. With the exception of the occasional "hiccup"..... My system never crashes or needs rebooting..... Acid runs flawlessly when I go to the trouble to Ctrl/Alt/Del all the programs running in the background.

    Just wondering if Vegas is a resouce hog.
    I'm running an AMD450PCU with 256M of Dram.... Which, by no means, is fast by todays standards.. And Acid works fine for me.

    My motto..... "Do what it takes to get the job done". If you're having problems with Vegas.... Switch to Acid. Acid is a looping tool. Who knows, Acid might take up less system resources, and prevent crashes.

    OK..... I'm officially rambling, now.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone at the AES convention..... And I need a place to stay while there....... Prefferably a place with a few good looking blondes wif nice boobs :eek:
