Kaoss Pad 2 or mini-KP?

I'm looking to get a Kaoss Pad for my setup here. But, the Kaoss Pad 3 is way out of my budget. I was recently playing with a KP2 the other day and really liked it. However, I was also looking at the mini-KP. What's the difference between the two? Which is better?

Overheated Equipment

I'm currently setting my Apogee Duet on my glass desk on a small towel to prevent the rubber pads from sticking to the glass. However, my Apogee Duet tends to get really hot. Should I worry about the towel overheating my Duet?

Re: is smoking in a room bad for the output of a synth

Can lighting scented candles in your studio have the same effect as smoke on your electronics?

Re: Winter NAMM 2010

I'm actually excited about the Beat Thang. Besides the horrible name, and egotistical marketing strategy that would put Kanye to shame, it looks pretty cool and would seem pretty beneficial for anyone into producing hip-hop songs. Not excited about the presets however. I'm just itching to play with ...

Re: Best Microphone Cables? Mogami?

Thanks SF. So I did some more research, and found some companies that make "custom hand-made cables" by buying Mogami and Canare cables and soldering on different ends to them. For instance: http://www.proaudiola.com Anyone familiar with these guys? I would go the custom route, but I don't know how ...

Re: Best Microphone Cables? Mogami?

To Stab Frenzy: I have the room, mic, and preamp pretty much set out. I mean, right now, I'm running a really basic setup. A Rode NT1-A going into a M-Audio DMP3, and then into an Alesis Multimix 8 USB as my audio interface. My room is fairly decent for mic recording, but I'm going all "DIYYY MANNNN...

Best Microphone Cables? Mogami?

So, I'm torn between getting two different microphone cables. All from the same brand, Mogami. http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/product/Mogami-Gold-Neglex-Quad-Mic-Cable-for-Studio-Neutrik-XLR?sku=338010 http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/product/Mogami-Silver-Series-Microphone-Cable?sku=3...

Mac Mini RAM Upgrade?

I'm looking to upgrade my Mac Mini's RAM from 1gb to 4gb. I don't really have much experience with changing ram, but I've seen that it's possible in the Mac Mini, even though it's all closed up. I have one question though: Will the Mac Mini accept two of these? http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-CT25664A...

Cubase 5 Educational Edition same as Cubase 5?

What's the difference between the education edition of Cubase 5 compared to the full version? Cubase 5 costs 500, while the EdE costs 300. I hear it's just the same thing, but rather a matter of a "license".

Anyone know?

Recording Acoustic Guitar Tips?

Anyone have tips on recording acoustic guitar? For instance, where to position the mic, etc. I'm also looking for some good VSTs to enrich the sound. Specifically nice compressors/reverbs. Thanks!

Re: Best Reverb Plug-in?

What about good hardware modules?
I haven't been able to find a good one to run vocals or synths through.
I found an Alesis Quadraverb at my local pawn shop, but that's about it :/

Best Reverb Plug-in?

I'm looking for some recommendations for some good reverb plugins. I've been using the reverb plugin in FL Studio mostly (Fruity Reverb), and I don't really like the sound.

Anyone have any good ones?

Re: Been playing with my Yamaha CS-10..

I don't know what your skills are, but here's what I'd say: 1. Make sure the LFO mod of the oscillator is at zero. 2. Switch the switch to PW, and turn it to zero. 3. Turn the saw volume and the noise volume in the mixer to zero, turn the square all the way up. 3. Switch the filter to LPF. 4. Turn ...

Been playing with my Yamaha CS-10..

and I've come to a dilemma. I haven't been able to sculpt any sound that I want. I've been trying to make a nice pure square wave sound, but it just comes out distorted. I don't know if something's wrong with the synth, or if my subtractive synthesis skills are horrible. Can anyone help?
