Re: Dirty mains power breaking my gear!

I've used a couple of chunky APC units for years to power all my computer and network gear, as well as my digital console and other sensitive stuff as I get a lot of brown outs here. You must be imagining this Hugh, as I've been informed on these fora that This Kind Of Thing just doesn't occur in t...

Re: Do multiple uses of monotimbral VSTs INCLUDE all their presets?

I've never understood 64-bit DAWs, I've really tried, they're flippin' nightmares!) Just curious as to what you define as a 64-bit DAW? I ask, because there really should be no difference to the function of a 32-bit versus 64-bit version of a DAW. You may be attributing differences to the wrong asp...

Re: Izotope

I don’t use Neutron, but it’s designed to run as insert effect on your master bus. So that’s right, you shouldn’t use it as a send effect. An insert will process the whole signal, which is what you need. A send effect adds something, such as reverb, to the original signal. It's meant to be used as ...

Re: If processing power wasn't an issue, what would you like to see happen in the audio/music industry?

Hi GPU Audio, I would like to have low latency monitoring with compression, EQ, reverb and perhaps even pitch correction (I know that's a big ask), without having to buy a very expensive and soon-to-be obsolete interface with DSP built in. This requires a step change in processing power. Is all of ...

Re: If processing power wasn't an issue, what would you like to see happen in the audio/music industry?

Things I can think of offhand:- - Probably smaller buffers, and thus less latency. Unfortunately, smaller buffers are unlikely to result in lower real-world latency due to the nature of (many of) the processes we wish to apply to audio, which simply require a fixed and finite amount of wall-clock t...

It's more of a best practices guide for people running AoIP systems (Dante, RAVENNA, AES67) alongside EuCon or accessing storage over the network.

Re: Cubase Device panels

@ Elf;

I guess with the hardware you might find many reasons not to like it, fader-feel, robustness . . . would probably be the things that decide it in the end for a working pro.

I don't think they're let down by lack of functionality or integration with Steinbergsoft is what I'm sayin'.

Re: UAD goes Native (*not* Apple silicon)

So - as I read back through my own post it occurs to me that as UA port more of their codebase to be compilable for a wider architecture ecosystem AND revamp the hardware - they would be pretty well placed to implement something like HDX+ as a DAW-agnostic solution.

Sure, that's a good point - but it's not necessarily the case that RS be limited to controlling the software.
