Re: New iMacs any good for Logic?

I'm in the same boat. The iMacs look great, and are much more affordable, but I'd lose my UAD2 card. Can't imagine how much faster even the cheapest new Mac Pro wold be.

Re: Renoise 2.1 beta, with Rewire

This looks kind of interesting. I guess I don't understand what the workflow would be with a tracker. Can anyone dumb it down for me? What are the benefits of this?

Re: Something new from Propellerheads today? Buzz?

Shouldn't they just have rolled Record into Reason 5 and done away with having to buy an additional app? It would seem that if you have Reason installed, Record then assumes all of Reason's functions in the one app anyway so it seems that the Propellerheads have chosen a convoluted path to achieve ...

Re: Cycling '74 drops Pluggo

Wow. That's big. This makes quite a bit of sense, but more than anything it makes me very eager to see the Max/Live combo in action (namely, in my hot little hands). The future is looking pretty cool.

Re: Akai APC40 & "Max for Live"

That APC40 looks mighty amazing. I think I'll get one. Agreed, it does look amazing. It has my gear lust meters overloading. But I still can't clearly see how I might integrate it into my workflow. I've watched a bunch of the videos, and it looks fun as hell, but.... I just wonder if it will really...

Re: Something new from Propellerheads today? Buzz?

I must be missing the point. Is this GarageBand for the Reason crowd? I wanted to be more impressed.

Re: Softsynths live ????

It just depends what you want to run, and how CPU intensive it is. I've used Reason live for simple organs and Rhodes stuff, and it worked great. I've made Reaktor work, but I had to be picky what ensemble I selected. I've even used Logic live so I could run my piano samples. All in all, over dozens...

UAD Recs

Dear Big Blue... er I mean Mac OS X Audio heads, I just picked up a UAD1 Express Pak on sale, and I'd love to hear some thoughts on how best to spend the $100 coupon that comes with it. They include the 1176SE, Pultec EQP-1A, RealVerb Pro, Nigel, and CS-1 plug-ins for free. I don't need anything in ...

Re: using Live "live', like a looper pedal, advice apprecia

Check out video of the Live Looper in action by one of my favorites: Christopher Willits

http://www.xlr8r.com/tv/98

He's been doing a series over at XLR8 on music production and it's full of nuggets of wisdom about his process. Well worth a watch.

A7 versus A5

Opinions please..... I've narrowed it down to ADAM A5's or A7's to replace the Alesis M1's in my office. The question is whether or not it's worth the extra outlay (~$400) to upgrade to the A7 model from the A5. Eventually, I'll consider augmenting whatever I end up with with an ADAM subwoofer, but ...

Live 8's looper is the best looper hardware or software that I've ever used. It is maybe the most well thought out piece of software released since Live itself. I've had a boomerang, 3x Jammen, 2x Loopstations, a DL4, a low fi loop junkie (which is still awesome for other reasons) and used sooperlo...
