    Hi Gary,
    Um, I tried hooking my guitar up to my floppy disk so that when I recorded it into my modem I would get that rotating speaker effect, but it didn't work. What did I do wrong? My computer is white, I optimized it for audio by putting it equadistant from my stereo speakers. I record with Windows recorder, is there a better way?
    HA! Hi Gary, can't get enough of this stuff, I see...Good to see ya here!
     
  3. Oh MY GAWD! They gave Gary his own forum!

    This place will rock! :)

    Cheers!

    The included audio recorder is the _best_ way to record on a windows platform. After all, Microsoft wrote the OS, they wouldn't slack on any included software,... right? Who needs to record more than 60 seconds anyway?!?!?

    :D

    Unless you have a 56k modem your gtr sound will suck (no midrange)
    :(
    ..better to just tape the floppy to your chest for that "full range sound"

    Make sure that you adequately "toast" your floppy...'bout the same as a bagel in most machines..your mileage may vary.

    Hehe

    Opus...thanks for yer post over on DP

    Now now Chris..we all know Toast is a Mac product and it comes with Jam..whether it's grape or strawberry we still dont know..or you could go with the blueberry imac(Icrap I call it!!!)
    That's an interesting idea to tape the floppy to your chest..is that sort of like the piezo mic method?!

    Hey Opus,

    Be kind to your fruit colored friends,
    Cause a Mac might be somebody's brother.
    And the blueberry garden he tends
    Could grow flowers like no other.

    Glad to see you here. Are you familiar with the Roland VS series of "Studio Workstations"?
    Several months ago, our band did some tracks on one of our brothers' VS1680 (I think that's the model). The recording sounds great, but this machine is incredibly complex when it comes to doing something like tweaking the bass on one track, or playing back all the stuff you've done into a stereo mix.

    It seems you have to twirl a wheel, punch buttons, backtrack, fronttrack and often sidetrack.

    I'd love to be able to get some of these takes into Cubase and mix it thru a Tascam US 428, but I understand that Roland has made this machine with some kinda proprietary language that would make digital transfer like trying to use a jetski to drag race a Mustang on an offroad trail.

    It seems that there would be at least two dreaded D/A A/D conversions, not to mention any timing problems beyond stereo.

    One of the reasons we never finished these sessions was the late night drawn out mixing time that I could see going much faster thru a DAW setup.

    In reference to the previous discussion on this thread, here's my suggestion:
    If I had a B3, I'd use a circular saw to dip cut a slot for a diskette, in the vicinity of where it is on a Clavinova. If you get a little heavy handed with the saw and the slot looks too big for a 3.5 floppy, you can maybe use some 5.25's that surely lurk in the closet. I once tried bolting an old Garrard turntable to our local college's Steinway, but was descended upon by rabid music majors and their instructors. After that, the only Hammond they permitted me to approach was a folding music stand that they threatened to insert in some uncomfortable place.

    Ha ha ha ha!!! That's funny!!
    Yeah...I've taken the digital out of a VS880 into Nuendo before without any problems..took me a little bit to get the sync working properly but I got it..cant remember what the settings were but it did work no problem...I believe Cubase is the issue with sync timing and getting the VS to clock properly if I'm right. Basically you should send MTC to the VS and take two tracks at a time..if they drift just slide the tracks a little bit and they will allign up!

    Does this imply there are actually places that exceed the geekyness here by such an order of magnitude as to deem us "cool"? Scary! LOL
