I've been wondering about the sort of sound where you know you're listening to a drum machine and it's crappy in a cool, fuzzy, fizzy lo-fi way.
That Primitive Radio Gods hit, "standing outside yada yada", is the most comercial example I can think of, but refence points for me would be the first Satchell album and the Twilight Singers album.
At work, we have two fully featured Pro-Tools systems. Synchronized together we can easily achieve a track count of 128, with lot of FX and EQ. But naturally that comes at a very high price tag.
I use Logic Audio on a G4 400Mhz in my home studio with MOTU 24i and 2408 Audio interfaces. When Comparing sound quality, I have the feeling that the MOTUs are as good as If not better than the Digidesign 8/8/8. In my opinion they sound more open .
If you want more bite to your distressor for electric guitar, bass, even vocal- do not plug anything into the stereo link on the back of the unit. Then set the front of the unit to DIS2 (which I'm told boosts even-ordered harmonics) & put it in LINK mode. It adds more distortion. Sometimes the DIS3 works better depending on the instrument. I usually set my attack at 10+, and my release around 2-3.

anyone know of a win2k app that can route and thru your midi like you can do with your hands and a thru box?
I am having trouble routing midi internally...seems like the midi manufacturers would have us send midi back out thru a port then back in again thereby selling many more and larger midi interfaces...
I tried midi yoke, and hubis won't run on win2k...any other ideas?
Digi, SS, Nuendo etc., Design something that will save new releases and the future of the 21 century musician from total poverty due to piracy.
I've branched this topic from the "Fixing Live Drums" thread:
Please please please make a comprehensive console manager manual
especially in the mixermap definition section
We now have DIGI 001/PC I do want to upgrade to TDM. I have been told that Wavesno longer supports TDM for PC. Is this a factor to be considered? I built this PC from their specs. a 750 PIII, 256 ram, 2 IDE HD's, plextor CDR but a ASUS mother board which works great for 001 but the PT spect says there is a possible PCI voltage problem when using it for TDM? It does not matter wheither I use PC or MAC But I would like to use the computer that I already have...a PC.
I read through your post about controlling 2 of the R.Ed. 32 modules via software. However, I'm still a bit confused. Is it possible at this time to control 2 modules through the software mixer with mixpander cards or not? Thanks!
