    Re: MIDI 2.0 and MIDI CI

    That's good. Some of those capabilities are available now as non-standardized extensions to MIDI. For instance, Fishman's Triple Play has teamed with a small number of sampler makers to supply...

    Re: MIDI 2.0 and MIDI CI

    As primarily a guitarist, I hope they expand the instrument-type definition beyond keyboards and percussion. For instance, on a guitar there is more than one place to fret the same note - and yet,...

    Re: Monitor Shoot-out!

    I think that's right, Philip. That's what I've been trying to say. And if I don't do the adjustment - none of them will sound as good as they could. My theory, though, is that each will also...

    Re: Monitor Shoot-out!

    Well, first of all, you're right: Philip is very generous with his time and advice, and I do appreciate it. And I appreciate yours too.

    I can understand your concerns with my methodology better. ...

    Re: Monitor Shoot-out!

    Philip - I wish I could say that I never do what turn out to be foolish things. But, I can't. I appreciate that you're trying to save me from myself here. Ultimately though, I'm going to follow...

    Monitor Shoot-out!

    I've been building up to this for quite awhile. I upgraded my SAC/SAW software and so I also upgraded my converters and pres. In the process, I discovered that Sweetwater was having an...

    Re: My New Build

    Gotcha. That's an issue when attempting to retrofit new technology into very old code. Almost always painful. At least you only have one person's style to deal with, rather than the last 50...

    Re: My New Build

    I appreciate your quick response, Bob.

    I did the math to see how a 64 sample delay compares to the distance sound travels in that amount of time at 48k, which is what I track at. Sound moves...

    Re: OT: Hi-Z Input versus DI

    Video of Glen McDougal discussing details of his Fury guitar - including the pickups:

    Sounds like they really were unique.

    Re: My New Build

    I thought I had this all figured out. Then I installed the Adam s3h monitors and played some music through them to loosen them up. For convenience, I created a SAW track with all the wavs from Bela...

    Re: AES/EBU As Output To Monitors?

    For anyone who is wondering, using AES with SAC is as easy as using any other output type. The 'AES - L' is misleading: it outputs both channels. You daisy chain the signal from the source to the...

    Re: AES/EBU As Output To Monitors?

    Good - that's what I was hoping. I'm not sure what I'd do with that capability, but it makes my propeller spin to know it's there. Maybe someday it will come in handy.

    Re: AES/EBU As Output To Monitors?

    Well - you make a good point. I guess I have to think about that. My original thought was that while the room itself will be identical between them, the optimum settings relative to it won't be the...

    Re: AES/EBU As Output To Monitors?

    Thanks, Michael. I'm kind of surprised that these Adams did not ship with a manual considering that they are more sophisticated than a hifi speaker - and also spendy. But, I just found it online...

    AES/EBU As Output To Monitors?

    I'm in the process of setting up a shootout between three sets of upper-middle-class monitors. All of them are powered. Two of them will accept an AES/EBU input. At least one of those (the Adam s3h)...

    Re: My New Build

    I figured out how to avoid Process Lasso powering things down when no-one has touched them for awhile. And I got a 3 slipped buffer run at 119 stereo x 3.

    To stop PL doing a screen saver, et. al.,...

    Re: OT: Hi-Z Input versus DI

    Sorry if it seemed like I was not giving you the technical credit you deserve. Didn't mean to.

    Well... that's really weird then. That seems to imply that your pickup's signal is so strong that...

    Re: OT: Hi-Z Input versus DI

    Dell, without having any experience with this converter, I wonder why the signal into your UMC404HD is so hot that it overdrives the converter preamp. Are you running a preamp between your guitar...

    Phillip - I recall that you had an issue with your machine going into screen saver mode that you couldn't run down. My machine just began to do that for the first time today. Today was also the...

    I've spent a lot of time stress testing while changing parameters in Process Lasso. It has definitely made an improvement. The two areas of change within PL that Phillip suggested, in particular,...

    Yes, I presumed that 'slipped' and 'dropped' were synonymous - but only after the fact. When I searched for 'dropped buffers' nothing came up. And when I searched for 'buffers' there were too many...
