Blue Cat releases super cool routing plugin!

You guys see this? Might be great for our power hungry DSP stuff, and more reliable than audio gridder, while being simpler than VEP.

Its pretty much a master/slave type pluginso you can route audio various places. I'm gonna grap it to try out.  I asked them if it would sync two daws up so I can use the sequencer in Reason and record audio in Samplitude while hearing everything synced to the same timeline, like I used to do with rewire.

Even if not, it's still cool to use another computer as an effects processor like for all my auxes, or for an ultra heavy amp sim or vsti.

LCD or SDC for classical vocal (soprano/ mezzo soprano)

Last Christmas I recorded a grand piano+ mezzo soprano+soprano. I used a ldc mic (Austrian audio 818) and a zoom f6 32bit float. Unfortunately it sounded bad. There was a nasty distortion in the higher frequencies at some moments both the vocals came in. The mic did not clip and was put about 3m from the vocals. In fact the on camera mic (sdc stereo mic) was ok and saved the day. In the past I did some nice recording with this mic and a classical tenor.( I tested the mic afterwards and it is fine) Would a Schoeps mk40 or mk41 be a better option?

Alesis MultiMix 4 to a single QSC CP8?

Hi, I have an Alesis MultiMix 4 mixer and a single QSC CP8 speaker. The manual for the mixer says to use 1/4 TRS for the main outs. And the speaker has a female XLR input. So my question is, if I only have one speaker, should I get a dual 1/4" TRS cable that terminates at the other end as a male XLR? Is that the proper connection when I only have one speaker? If not, how should I connect the main outs to the speaker? Thanks!

Audio Interface, periodic buzzing

Hey,

I hope this is the right place to ask this question..

so I got a new Motu M2 Interface about a month ago. Since then there are periodic buzzing sounds coming from the Headphone Amps at "random" times. Sometimes it runs 3 hours without a Problem and sometimes the buzzing happens twice in 5 minutes. Turning the Interface off and on again "fixes" the buzzing temporarily.
