Someone around here likes doing remixes?

Hello Vintage Synth Explorers :) Today, i released the last EP in a cycle of 3 EPs, dedicated to Dubtechno and Deep House. Each of those 3 EPs features 6 tracks, produced using hardware gear and outboard effects only. Now, as a special, there will be a remix-edition of those 3 EPs, bundled onto one ...

Re: Mac USB3 compatible MIDI Interfaces?

Sounds like the time is ripe for someone to design a good, fully compatible (with updated drivers), USB3 MIDI interface (at least 2x2, and 4x4 or 6x6), and bring them to market for a reasonable price.. I think that wont happen the next years. USB 3.0 was released some years ago, if there would have...

Re: Mac USB3 compatible MIDI Interfaces?

But anyway, good to know that the Fastlane also works with the newer Macs and on the USB 3.0 bus. The Fastlane would have been my backup if i wouldnt have discovered the good, old Emagic AMT-8. As i figured out, on Yosemite (for example) there is the MIDI driver for the AMT-8 already pre-installed w...

Re: Mac USB3 compatible MIDI Interfaces?

Upgrade : as far as i figured out, the good, old Emagic AMT-8 runs proper under USB 3.0 and even OSX 10.10 Yosemite Solved : If the generic Apple driver doesnt work for you, go to the Apple Support Website and download the Unitor Family-Driver 2.5. What follows is a little handcraft to get it insta...

Re: Mac USB3 compatible MIDI Interfaces?

With both Mac and Windows OS releases on the horizon as well, it's a lousy time to be putting together a new computer-based rig True words! Its getting worse and worse. This gear aint working, that gear aint working. It can be that it works, it can be that it dont. As i figured out, the problem isn...

Re: Mac USB3 compatible MIDI Interfaces?

- If so, what MIDI interface are you using, that actually works correctly? - MOTU, in contrast, claims their USB 2 MIDI interfaces are compatible.. t seems to be a really bad situation. I also did some further research. It seems the manufacturers of MIDI-Interfaces and MIDI-Controllers really dont ...

I guess you have that CF device by Lotharek, right? Recommendable?

You´re right. That was what i meant originally. My fault. I meant IDE instead of PCI.

Re: EMU 4000 Hard disk questions

No, the internal HD is placed where the floppy drive was placed before. So, in fact, my ESI-4000 has only an internal HD, which is great because the OS is booted faster from the HD than from the floppy. Because of the internal HD there is no further drive like Zip drive or anything else. The HD fits...

Re: EMU 4000 Hard disk questions

Marco - do you have any kind of extra PSU for the SCSI HD? I've read that the ESI PSU is not strong enough to handle an internal HD. I am back with the infos i promised to share here. I contacted the guy i bought the ESI-4000 with the internal 15 GB harddisk from. He said, the internal HD is connec...
