I’ve discovered that simply overdriving the preamp on my mixing desk and adding a little bass and cut from the top end makes a nice distortion that’s much more subtle than the on board overdrive on my Revolution. Its also cheaper than getting a cheap stomp box (well until I blow my mixer channel). :...

Hi, I'm thinking of getting a 2nd external drive for my aging PC (the idea being to keep the Cubase and softsynths on it's internal drive but the Cubase files and audio on an external with another external for back up of the those music files). You mention SATA and RAID. I accidently went to the PC...

What do you use mainly for recording?

Softsynths = more CPU
ROMlpers = more RAM
Audio = another audio HD

Re: Computer Improving???

in what order would you recommend that I buy the following? * Hard Drive * Video Card * Processor * Memory * Cooling I already have the specs on what to buy, so I don't really need advice on that. I just need to know what would be best for media needs (Audio, Video, Games, Soft Synths.) thanks in a...

A pro soundcard engineer on the SOS ST form has stated its impossible to get audio and MIDI to sync properly using a USB soundcard which is all down to Microsoft who have no interest fixing this problem and I’m guessing it also has something to do with the problems I have. 100% True. There is no st...

lol, I dont think 150 - 180 bpm is fast by midi standards, a midi clock message takes 320 um (that micro seconds, one millionth of a second) and there are 24 of those for a quarter note you can do the math and i know all about the ST and it's timing (notice my sig per chance?) and why its good. I m...

A lot of folk who work with fast tempo music like drum n' bass swear by the ST and for a good reason. lol, I dont think 150 - 180 bpm is fast by midi standards, a midi clock message takes 320 um (that micro seconds, one millionth of a second) and there are 24 of those for a quarter note you can do ...

Mac's have MIDI integrated as part of the OS but for the best timing this side of a Syclavier the good ole ST with Notator is king which is the reason mine 4mb STE is staying in the attic. Bollocks.

Re: Latency Question?

mr_m0nks wrote:when recording via a computer what amount of latency is considered acceptable?

also if you up the latency would this allow you to run more complex arrangements? (more vst's etc)
Less than 7ms isn't beyond most 64bit PC's it just a case of how much you want to have running at once.
