    Control Room Surrounded by Glass

    Hey guys! I’m putting together my new control room, and I’m a little bit stumped on some of my treatment options. Normally I know where to start putting panels up based on listening position, measuring for first reflections, etc.. but this control room is built in the shape of something like an...

    Waves MS Matrix and breaking out LR info in Cubase

    Hey everyone! It's been a few years since I've been an avid forum user, but this place profoundly shaped my life and career when I was a young engineer. I kinda want to start by thanking all of the veteran users (I don't know how many are still here haha), but I do have a question about a...

    Been with A for some time. Evolve A or move to B?

    Hey guys! I'm coming to a point where I'm starting to feel like I should step up my mixing toolbox. I've had the Yamaha HS-50's for about eight years now. Since the beginning I have utilized a home theater sub woofer with them (don't flame, I was young and as I gained experience I used it almost...

    My new pride and joy...

    Hey guys! So the other day I sold my M-Audio Profire for $400 and turned right around and bought myself an Otari MX5050 MKIV-2 for $380. It came with the rack and is fully operational. I tested all of the I/O's, pots, functionality of the play, stop, etc. The capstan still seems to be in good...

    Sony TC-580

    I have done quite a bit of research on this piece and even though it is renown for it's horrible Auto-Revers mechanisms, I still wonder if it would be a good piece for me to start out my venture of analog recordings. A friend has one that he told me to take home, try it, and then shoot him...

    So I've been doing my own thing lately...

    ...just trying to make my way and learn from people around me and from my own experiences. I have come to the conclusion that, for now, I love editing/mixing/busing in my digital world, but I am wanting analog flow in my chain like crazy! My mixes and tracks are so... stringent. You know, not...

    Choice of PCI system for my PC

    So, I've had it with my resource-sucking Profire 26x26. My computer worked just fine with my E-MU system, but I needed more inputs. The Firestudio also hates my computer so I'm moving away from firewire altogether. I have two PCI and one PCI-E slots in my Pentium-D VAIO. I was looking at the...

    Building a pro studio- Need a little bit of help...

    I am building a new studio with some partners and they put me in charge of the DAW and overall recording set-up. I have decided that I want to run Cubase 4 (since I know it in and out) on a custom built PC. There are many more details, but I don't think I need to list out the whole thing for my...

    Native Instruments Akoustik Piano & MIDI Recording Quest

    I just bought AP yesterday and installed it today. I usually record at 96k, so naturally I ran AP under my 96k sound interface settings. I noticed that two of the pianos sounded strangely high-pitched, however the other two sounded perfect. I switched the sample rate to 44.1k and everything...

    MIDI Recording w/ Cubase SX3

    I have an M-Audio 88ES that I run into Cubase SX3 using Eiderol's Orchestral VSTi. I am attempting to assign my modulation wheel to "volume." I went through all of the steps correctly, and when I roll the wheel I see the MIDI signal flashing in Cubase, however it does not do anything. Would...

    Chameleon 7602 vs. UA 610 Solo

    While at Guitar Center I tracked some samples using each on their setup. It is way too hard to tell which to get. Could someone contrast a bit for me? I will be walking out of here with one or the other today. Thanks guys! Edit: I ended up buying the Chameleon. Let's see how it works out...

    Looking at UA 610 Solo and older M610 - Urgent questions!

    Could someone please contrast between the Universal Audio 610 Solo and the old version of the M610? Other than the number of inputs and price, what is the major difference between the two? Time is of the essence due to eBay auctions where the M610 is located. I will need to buy the piece by...

    Cubase SX3 "Plugin Information" Window + Organizat

    I have had a lot of problems in the past with the functionality of my plugins and errors occuring. The effect was that whole sets of plugins would be "unloadable," in which I would have to uninstall, then RE-install the bundles. This leaves my "Plugin Information" window an absolute mess. Is...

    A/D Converter Comparison

    So I did more research on interfaces with two ADAT inputs. I need this to use my S/MUX output on my Digimax FS (giving me 16@96k). I found the two that would suit me best (considering price and all): MOTU 8-Pre and Presonus Firestudio. My first impression of the 8-Pre was not a very good one...

    PCI/Firewire Interfaces @ 96k w/ DIGIMAX FS?

    I have a Presonus DIGIMAX that I would like to run all 8-ADAT inputs into an interface that will accept them at 96k (if at all possible). I also want the interface to have a few of it's own inputs and even a second ADAT input. I have a Sony Vaio PC with Windows XP Media Center and I use Cubase...

    Problem w/ E-MU 1820M

    I have Windows XP Media Edition on a Sony VAIO Pentium Duo Core. I have my E-MU 1820M installed and until recently, have not had a problem. In the past few weeks my sound cuts out for about 1-2 seconds at random times. It also pops and skips a second or a half during playback sometimes. I tried...

    CD Burning Software

    So as of now I export my songs in 16-bit wave format from Cubase on my PC and I use Roxio 8 to burn my audio discs simply because Roxio cannot convert the 24-bit wave files to CDDA format. Is there any software out there that I can buy that WILL render 24-bit wave files to audio CD? If not, what...
