Excuse me, should this have not gone in here? I just realized it's not really about musical instruments.

Trouble with SACD

After listening to SACD sound at a local Sony store, I decided to buy a Sony DVP-NS9OV. As far as I know, I seem to be doing things properly, but no matter what I try, my SACD just sounds the same as a CD. It's been pissing me off for these past few days, mainly because I can't tell whether or not I...

Wasn't there a DOS release of Logic back in the day? If there is, that would probably be my choice.

Don't forget that Roland and Yamaha have pick-ups and modules for this. You can also try using a SynthAxe, which is a vintage 80s guitar that is built specifically for MIDI, but keep in mind that these are very rare and VERY expensive. Another option is the Ztar, which is still being manufactured an...

This topic came in at the right time. I was soon to make a topic asking the question, "Are there any MIDI Timecode chips made for modern computers?" Well, are there? BTW, Notator is apparently the greatest piece of production software for the ST. And better yet, a couple of Joes are still making upd...

With an Atari ST, your best bet is to run Notator. It's the ST's predecessor to Logic and is great for MIDI.

toadmanxtro was a good seller. I'm loving the Waldorf MicroQ he sent me. And since he lives in Toronto, which is an hour away from me, shipping was ultra-fast.

Also, do think that maybe an Intel Mac mini or a Macbook (Pro) running with NI KORE could also do a good job?

If I wanted to use a rack PC, wouldn't I need a MIDI interface, audio interface and software with VST support? Or are there some PCs that have some of this stuff already built in?

Receptor vs Plugzilla vs Rackmount PC

What do you think would be the best solution?

I don't need Neko Open Synth since I already have a DAW.

If you choose Rackmount PC, what could be a very simple, cheap, yet effective way to do it?
