This is Scary: Everything's Working!


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody...this is too weird. SONAR is working like a champ, so is Cubase VST/32. All the VST instruments are working with SONAR thanks to VST-DX adapter. Reason still hasn't crashed on me. Windows is behaving. When I go to loop things in Wavelab, they loop perfectly, with very little effort. My guitars are staying in tune. Acid 1.0 -- 1.0, for chrissakes -- continues to be totally stable. And even though I push Vegas Video unmercifully, despite the occasional hiccup, it takes what I throw at it. What the hell is going on here? I'm getting disoriented. I'm also running out of topics to post about...I mean, topics like "I recorded a song last night and everything worked," or "I tried WDM drivers for the first time yesterday and they worked," contain little educational value.

Ever since I moved to a dual boot system (one installation of Windows for programming/word processing and one installation for Cubase *only*) it's been like heaven. (Well, [i]almost[/i] -- I still need more processor power...) All of my internet and games stuff is on a totally different computer (which happens to be a complete mess, and crashes on me all the time!). On my DAW, this has actually been the longest amount of time I've gone without having to reinstall Windows... It's been over a year now (it used to be every six months). It does help that I don't install anything on the DAW computer than I haven't thoroughly tested out elsewhere. So yeah, no technical problems from this end... Which is why I probably participate in the "Korn Rulez" and "How can I not suck so bad when playing guitar" discussions more than the technical ones... :D

I went through a similar "portal" recently also. What a feeling! So i countered with deciding to learn alot more about wiring and studio setup issues. Last night i was laying in bed dreaming of a time a few months from now, when my patch bay is all wired up, with my new (old) WBS and McCurdy pres and eq's, and i can just sit comfortably in a nice neat room with no cords wrapped around my feet and neck, and almost effortlessly have access to all the tools i need, in any configuration. AHHH, the dream. What a cool thing this recording stuff is!

That's like getting free porn on your T.V. Don't move, don't change the channel, don't change the volume, just enjoy it while it lasts! (ok, that was my 15 year old response, here's my real response) Craig, I think that means you need to upgrade your operating system now.

Glad to hear all is working well, Craig. My studio has been working good lately also, knock on wood. The only problem I'm currently having is a 'cal-9' issue on one of my ADAT's. (no biggie). The DAW, I've now learned, that when I load something and it does not respond well, it's the hell outta there, gone, deleted. I'd rather live without the features of a program/plug-in than to live with the hassle. Matt

Sorry, just a little punchy here, just rcvd. this months issue of Mix (oops, can I say that here?) & it's friday. -Yes, I subscribe to EQ too, in fact, I think I get all of the audio mags. EQ is my favorite! :D

OK...I am gonna mess up everyone's feel-good mojo. I just purchased Digi001, and put together a WinDoze 98 (Celeron 800 512 ram, 98 SE) box for the specific use of recording/daw/midi. I dropped in a fire wire PCI card (Belkin) and hung an external 80GB FW drive off it. My system is re-booting at intermittent intervals (it just shuts off and reboots). The re-booting is bugging me, but I am also second guessing my choice of the Pro Tools product for what seems to be a lack of good current windoze support, less features and less flexibility on the part of the hardware interface when compared to the 828 and the Aardvark Q-10. From what I am reading in these forums, a better choice may have been the Aardvark Q-10 and Sonar. The rig is for nothing more than my own entertainment, and to create audio (MIDI and vocal) to torment friends and family with at gatherings. What are the groups opinions on Digi vs. Aardvark/Sonar? I mention the re-booting just in case someone has had a similar prob with digi001. My main PC is currently running Win2K, and I was gonna upgrade it and re-load it, but if I switch to Q-10/Sonar, I don't need to re-load the OS. I prefer the Win2K platform for stability. i can do this switch because I am still within my return window, so my costs will be negligable.

I think I've been waiting for the snow that never comes. Sorry, Buffalo and Syracuse, but it's been so nice here (until just recently) that I haven't had the inclination to hole up with my meter and soldering iron in my little shop I've dubbed Hewlett Packard Bell Labs. I just bought a stereo condenser kit and have a couple of Silvertone Twin Twelve heads that I'm going to make into one, among other projects. Our band, in honor of a notorious local preacher, discovered the root of all electronic evil was a creature called the soldermite. This is a metal munching bug that has made itself incredibly small but quite mischievious. Perhaps Craig has inadvertantly discovered a soldermite retardant or repellant. If they're like roaches, his neighbors should unplug from the grid immediatly. Hope that "works right" mojo will be with me, too...

I recently (3 weeks ago) bought a new G4, and it came with Flemish OS (the Belgian languge) I hate it, I can't understand it... but since all is working pretty well for me (my new logic doesn't crash - I moved from cubase to logic) I don't dare changing it.....

Congratulations, Craig! I'm totally jealous. I'm taking some much needed time off after this grueling last 6 months... thanks for the welcome back. But one of the things on my to do list, once I actually get back to the business of making music, is to have somebody come over and clean up the conflicts and silliness on my Mac. I just know it's possible to have a system that never crashes and actually does everything you want it to do... I believe (click heels), I believe (click heels), I believe (click heels).... :rolleyes: (Not to mention the Toshiba laptop that took its final dive on the tour and it looks like it's the friggin' board that died - good grief - there's a $2000 paperweight!)... lz [url=http://www.lauriez.com]www.lauriez.com[/url]
