Re: Customer experiences with Sequential Wine Country

I've had great service from Wine Country. I had to send in a Six-Trak that needed repair, and they did an excellent job. I did not order parts from them separately from the repair job, but I would expect the service to be just as good for that. They're quite friendly folks, too, so shoot them an ema...

I'm not unwilling to spend the appropriate amount to get what I need (and I realize $200 isn;'t very much for a mixer), but I'm also trying to be realistic about what it is I need.... Audio will only be going into a humble M-audio delta 44 inteface, one track at a time, so it seems like it would be...

You might consider Soundcraft or Allen & Heath over Mackie, but they are quite a bit more expensive than $200. That said, there is nothing wrong with the Mackie stuff. It's great for the price.

I don't know how long ago the VLZ models were on sale, but the VLZ Pro models were recently superseded by the VLZ3 line. I couldn't find any info on VLZ alone: it's either VLZ Pro or VLZ3. I've owned the VLZ Pro 1402, and it's a decent budget mixer. I'd imagine the small improvements to the new VLZ3...

I've bought manuals from Syntaur, and have nothing but good things to say about them.

x2. The stuff I use regularly is citrus-based called De-Solv-It. It works really well on gummy stickers and doesn't leave a trace.

Yes. I loaded it on my Intel Mac and it ask me to insert a USB key. I can get a key (with Logic 7) off ebay. I was unclear as to what registration tricks I had to perform with Apple and the key to use it. Is the 'used' key tied to the registration number of it's original product (like Logic)? Will ...

I don't know that it ever went out of production, but they have been back-ordered for months at most retailers. They are still shipping from the factory in Taiwan, albeit in very small numbers.

I have a bunch of these Gator covers and they fit most keyboards. For my odd shaped stuff, like the Little Phatty and the Six-Trak I had some custom made using similar stretchy fabric and pull cords. If you or someone you know is good with a sewing machine, you could have them custom made for a lot ...

I have covers on all of my keyboards to keep the bulk of the dust off when they are not in use, but I still have to dust them now and again. I don't dust the studio room nearly as often as I should, though. I'm too lazy... Yeah where we live can be a dirty dusty h**l, eh? Yeah, especially when it's...

Yes, I loaded it on 10.4 and everything was good until it ask for the key. How does one get a key for an old piece of software? eBay... it doesn't matter what version of Logic the key authorizes. It can be really old, like Logic Audio 5. There used to be free XSkeys that PeachPit Press would send i...

So are you running your Mac with OS 9? I'm wondering what the best way to do this with a Macbook is. I haven't checked, but I wonder if you can switch off between OS 9 and OS 10.4 on Macs? You can't run OS 9 on Intel Macs, but you can run the public beta of SoundDiver on Intel or PPC machines in OS...

Went to Y user groups found and d'loaded the OEM Fiz standalone SD file, but it's nearly 8 years old. What OS compatibility does one pick if running XP? (95, 98, NT and 2000 are the only ones listed) I also noticed there's an updater from SD 2.x to 3.x. Do I/we need this for XP?? Gad this stuff dri...

The standalone version is SoundDiver OEM for Fizmo. Both OS 9 and Windows versions are in the files section of the Fizmo Yahoo! Group. It's probably elsewhere.
