  2. Re: OT: ZOOM UAC 8 and Electric Guitars

    FWIW, I've been using USB 2.0 to get multitrack audio from my Behringer X32 rack into my XP laptop for several gigs with my band, and it's been rock solid. Zero problems. Only been doing 12 or so...
  3. Re: WTFOT: "Battery is very low" warning on Windows 10

    I do, indeed. Think I should yank that bad boy?

    I notice that while the other day the battery icon in the notification area showed 100% around the time I was getting these prompts, today the icon...
  4. Re: WTFOT: "Battery is very low" warning on Windows 10

    The CR1032 I referred to is the typical CMOS battery cell. I'm fairly certain this warning is the typical laptop battery warning, not a motherboard battery warning, since it directs me to plug in my...

    Re: Save An EQ Setting For Future Use?

    My guess is that he didn't know that to be the case (or more precisely, he didn't remember how to do what he wanted to do), and thus his starting the thread.
  6. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Well, that's good news, then. In theory we prepare for the worst, anyway, right? :)
  7. Re: WTFOT: "Battery is very low" warning on Windows 10

    I should've clarified that. No. That's the thing. It's a desktop system plugged into a UPS (which may or may not be relevant, who knows?).

    Sometimes I'll reboot and it's fine. Sometimes I'll...

    Re: Save An EQ Setting For Future Use?

    Alt-right-click on the mixer channel with the EQ setting of interest and behold a whole bunch of options. Not sure if you can save just an EQ setting, though. Hopefully, the manual will tell you,...
  9. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Thanks for the link, Dell, but I'm starting to like the whole border wall idea trying to read the bad English. Donald Trump in 2020! (not)

    He also goes into way more detail than I need. What's his...
  10. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Wow. Cool info. Thanks.

    So I guess my thinking about using SSD for audio being a bad idea outside of the cost issue is outdated, eh? I'm always late the party. :p
  11. WTFOT: "Battery is very low" warning on Windows 10

    So sorry to bug you guys (and gal) with this, but I'm at the end of my rope.

    Lately (can't say why), after some boot-ups, I get "Your battery is very low. Plug in your PC now" warnings every...
  12. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Fascinating. Hey, while I've got you...

    What's the current thinking on SSD for audio/video recording/playback? And why?

    I've been checking out video editing programs lately. Their proponents...

    Re: Freeware and donateware plugins

    Finally got a chance to try this out. One word: WOW. Finally -- a decent AGC choice as a plug-in. And Free! I may not get around much, and maybe there are others out there, but I haven't seen them;...
  14. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Tell me why. I don't consider curiosity overthinking, btw. ;) I don't have an HDD or SSD in front of me to format at this time. Though I likely have ADD and/or ADHD, and, certainly OCD. :rolleyes:

  15. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    And so I have to wonder what impact fragmentation has on the performance of SSDs over time, especially with real-time streaming applications like multitrack audio playback.
  16. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Aha! Glad I asked. :)
  17. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    The fragmentation angle is interesting. Hadn't considered that. Philip -- how 'bout that? Does it mean defragging more often when keeping with the default cluster size "under" bigger files?
  18. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Hi Robert,

    Yes, I know the rationale. I just wonder if it's still worth it in this age of way-fast throughput, regardless of cluster size. Are we fast enough these days that cluster size isn't a...
  19. Re: OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Dell, you got me thinking. 512 didn't sound familiar to me. (I assume you mean 512 bytes and not KB.) I poked around (a little) and found this:
    ...
  20. OT: Cluster Size in the 21st Century

    Are we still formatting our audio HDDs in 64K clusters? Or is our throughput sufficient these days that we don't worry about it, anymore?

    Sound off.

    Ah. It did seem odd that Dell wouldn't be hip to SATA specs. :p

    SATA III is 6 giga BITS per second max, yes? Certainly not giga BYTES! :rolleyes:

    Re: OT: hard disk error :^(

    Yeah, yer probably right. I just read this stuff about chkdsk marking bad sectors so that they're ignored, thinking "problem solved!" But, I guess that's not...

    OT: hard disk error :^(

    When I built my system in 2011 I put two WD Black 640 GB HDD's in. One of them lost it's NTFS status and was showing as "RAW." I tried chkdsk on it, and it showed errors, then said it fixed them. But...
