I thought this was a discussion, not an argument? er, anyway, it matters to a large extent, but yes, if the end listener is someone else who isn't an audiophile, what matters is the music, rarely the quality. I DO have good friends who own SACD players with 3000$ discreet analog amps and such, who d...

The biggest differnce to me has always been when dialing levels in before a final mix out. There were never enough dynamics in 16bit mixes to be able to slyly snuggle tracks behind bushes...

The difference between the mackies and behringers I have owned myself was in the quality of sound that came out...that and the behringers faders c**p out way faster....but the behringers I've had all sounded TOO clean, so clean that it seemed something was missing, like the had cutout part of the so...

Make sure the Arpeggios 'Clock Source' is set to Internal...else it will do exactly what you described =]]

...unless you're running midi clock into it already of course

Just a quick note to tag onto the dual core bit...although not all apps are multi-core optimized (although I know Cubase SX3, pro-tools, and ableton all ARE), the fact of the matter is that so long as you are using XP post sp2, or OS X, the operating systems ARE multi-core optimized (well, perhaps n...

-If you are going to build it yourself, Nforce chipset for the motherboard is a must. Asus is the top manufacturer. Dont understimate their cheap alternative subdivision called Asrock, they do cheap stuff without all the fancy things and are very reliable. no doubt, I run my x2 4200+ on an Asrock 9...

I would suggest a core 2 duo if you can boot the cost...I have a desktop with an x2 4200+ in it (2x2.2ghz), and my macbook pro has the woodcrest core 2 duo 2x2.33ghz. Both machines have 2gb ram running in dual channel. The core 2 duo is a fairly significant amount faster when I'm running things righ...

Soundwave, that is mostly an issue of poorly supported sound cards....I've played many...I emphasive many shows incorporating soft synths, recorded bounced tracks, and live midi running hardware synths AND syncing and manipulating video with the same midi source...all in time. It requires a solid tw...

err, yeah, that's a pretty broad topic to make a direct suggestion about without knowing you're preferences...at least for me it would be. Sequencers vary in so many ways, and everyone has their preferred style of interface. I guess in regards to affordable, the last I looked into it, the emu comman...

Polyphonic in that you can play every single drum voice in it simultaneously, yes...polyphonic in that you could play say three of the same rim shots simultaneously after different pitcehs, er no. You COULD sequence em fast enough to near sound that way though. The trigger buttons are just for rando...

I have to add though, the 1814 seems to suck TOTAL dingleberries in windblows...I think I'll keep Pro-tools and anything M-audio in the mac world, where they seem far happier....

Pro-Tools wasn't really MY choice...I'm very fond of Cubase...but I needed cross platform compatibility on a program my cousin is capable of using...and, well, pro-tools is about the best balance of easy to use with powerful tools (he's not very prolific with computers). Anyway, I did buy the 1814, ...

Anyone using/used an m-audio firewire 1814?

Hoo-Haa, wows, I haven't posted on here in EONS! Seems my Macbook Pro and 3d design consumed my life...oh, and much red wine.... so, anyway, has anyone been using this new fangled fw 1814 from M-Audio? Thinking of buying one, very soon, to be used with pro-tools and whatever else need be on my macbo...

I love my racked pc...I admit that I'd love to try out receptor or plugzilla too though, but it would lead to far more legwork for me in the end ( record our live sessions to my PC simultaneously). I'd go into to details if I had the time to right now, but first off I can say that for the price of e...
