Honestly, I hate jumping on a forum with my first post and immediately getting picked on for not knowing much about this, but i need some help with recording.
Just to start things off, here's my current setup:
-Custom Built PC (originally for games)
Phenom II x3 Processor @ 3.2GHz
8GB DDR3-1333 Crucial RAM
Using Cubase LE5 or Sonar 8
-Lexicon Alpha USB Recording Interface
-Peavey Unity Series 1000 12-Channel Mixer
-Fostex MR-8 Digital Multitrack
-Shure SM57 Mics (3 of them mainly for drums)
The jazz chorus is nice.
I'm new to this forum and thought it would be a good place to start asking questions.
I recently purchased a Tascam US-144 with Cubase LE 4 and have been doing home recordings of my band for demo purposes. I'm having a couple problems:
One: Cubase LE crashes when I do anything concerning editing. I'm pretty sure it's up to date so that might not be a problem. It crashes when I try silencing, hitpoint editing, etc...does anyone have that same problem? Or is it just that Cubase LE is horrible...
Personally, they piss me off. I don't "get it". First, why would any manufacturer be so lazy as to omit one knob; whats their motivation? Secondly, why would any consumer of said gear want to use it this way on purpose?
What, if any, is the advantage of this design?
