Roland S760 sample CD question

Hi guys.

I want to make work copies of a few sample CDs for the S760 that I've aquired over the years.
I recently bought a used S760 for home use and the CD's and S760 here at work need to stay here.
The mac keeps telling me that the discs are unrecognizable. I've turned on foreign file access, and pretty much anything else I can think of. Any ideas?


Working hours

Lo again,

Just wondered what sorta hours other people work in their studio jobs, whether it be engineering, producing, editing or whatever?

Do you dictate what hours you work, or is it more down the client and gauging how their creativity and enthusiasm is going. ?

How do you deal with those long long sessions - making sure you keep yourself mentally awake?



How much compression is happening with pop music?

I hear so many different guys replies regarding the amount they put on to "use little as possible" to "lay it on".

I've read that it's put on heavy 3 times throughout the mix. Can someone here shed some light on the subject.


...or the Finalizer 96k ?

audiokid, Angelo,
been heavily thinking, so I put the Distressor on my future list .
In fact what i need now is a mastering tool, definitely before the end of the year .
So the Finalizer 96k costs appr. as much as the GoldBundle, but unless Waves releases the 24 bit version for the C4 & RenRev - they mailed me they're working on it,so they also could be used with the 24Core - would the Finalizer not be the obvious choice ?

Thanks for the help

Acoustic Guitar Mics & Techniques?

Been playin w/my little Martin D-1 trying to get that GREAT guitar sound (to record into a gtr/vox mix).
Been playin with Sure SM81's, 414's, Oktava 012's. Tryin a few different pre/Eq's, and then into Distressors. (also have an AKG SolidTube, Blueberry, and a Lawson L47MP on the way)

Either I CAN get the sound I want and haven't found it yet (technique advice needed), or there's an ULTIMATE mic set I MUST HAVE to do this.

Or of course both.
