    Wow I hadn't heard that. That might be a good thing.

    I was recoring on the computer but have since moved back to hardware using the VF-160. Both have pros and cos, recording in the computer is probably better, but I needed more inputs recoding at once and I didn't want the hassle of installing a sound card for each additional input.

    I used to be quite anti-computer when it came from music production, but
    I purchased an audiophile sound card, cubasis, sound forge and acid and
    I've decided that it's a lot nicer to work with recordings with a mouse and something I can visually see on my computer. I usually record one track
    at a time, so I don't need more than 2 inputs. The do have some sound
    cards that can handle multiple inputs. But that starts to get more expensive.

    Don't some of the pro-grade sound cards have more than one input & more than one output?

    Sure, you can buy 'break-out' boxes with 8-24 inputs/outputs fairly cheap. They're basically a PCI card and a rackmount unit with A/D & D/A converters.

    I've used the MOTU 24i/o for a while and it works well, 24bit w/ 24 Inputs
    and 24 Outputs. But, it is on the high-end and costs about $1000.00. Worth
    it though if you're recording lots of tracks (ie. live bands).

    http://www.motu.com/english/motuaudio/24IO/body.html

    For around $400.00 you can get the MOTU 1224 with 10 Inputs and 12 Outputs.

    I used to be "Mr. Analog" when it came to recording medium. It took the big improvement in fidelity that came with 24bit Pro-Tools before I started to consider not using the 2" Studer 24 Track in the machine room. Eventually, as I did more projects on the computer I started to realize the benefits only a computer can offer as a recording tool. The "visual" element you mention is definitely one, but the one that has me hooked is the editing capabilities. The power is unlimited with the right software package and plug-ins.

    Yea, I saw some break out boxes and such, but I really wanted to be able to record at least 6 at a time, and I can do 8 with the 16 track so I just decided against the computer. I don't have anything against it and infact my brother who drums doesn't care about having individual drums mic'd and likes recording on the computer so we battle that a little bit :).

    I think we can look forward to many improvements in the program. I use acid quite a bit because of its simplicity.. if Sony is able to keep it easy to use, add the hundreds more Direct X filters they've been boasting, improve the routing functionality (supposedly, even the solo bus will have virtual sends and returns [for like track beat counters, metronomes, etc... ])... I'd love it.

    Pro Tools is wonderful. Unfortunately Pro Tools LE which is being included with most of Digidesigns M-box series of interfaces is not. I need low latency close to real time results when I am adjusting a track EQ, playing with reverb, etc. When you love little tricks such as duplicating a track panning each left or right and using different fx chains on both (try that with a mandolin!!) you really need the fx to work real time.. and it IS a software problem as the Mbox has almost a 0 latency :)

    I just replaced my Mackie console with a Behringer Eurorack UB1622 FX-Pro.. and I love it. Combined with a firewire Digidesign interface (8 in 8 out), and the routing of the Behringer I get a great real time mix down. I have two main groups, and two assignable sub groups. Each of the 12 channels are assignable (plus the solo bus). They have also so thoughtfully included the "mid-mid" range EQ on each channel. 4 of the stereo inputs feature channel inserts, and some really really nice pre-amps done by Focus Rite. Built in fx.. I'm playing back tracks that sound like they were done on an 8 bus mastering desk to an 8 channel DAT. And last but not least (man I love to brag about Behringer... so thoughtful to find +48v phantom power on the 4 balanced inputs :D)

    Drums are a complete headache for anyone behind a mixing console. I could burn up 4 compressors just micing a drum set.. and we haven't talked about gongs or bongos yet. Or cow bells.. or anything else they can find to hit and make noise <g>. Shure makes the best drum mics I've ever used. I did reinforcement for a goth band.. every time a female under 50 walked by their drummer, he did a 40 note fill in.. no matter WHAT was going on. With good compressors and the response from the Shure mics it was fine.

    Nothing against drummers lol .. You show up, I hand you a 16 channel, the mics and a snake and say "have a blast :)"

    No, no special halloweeny treats. I gave him some nacho-flavoured tortilla chips with hot salsa and some hot'n'spicy chicken wings, which he ate with relish, but then I had to give him two bowls of vanilla-flavoured milk to drink to cool his little mouff! :) He also crunched up the ice and ate it.

    Ah, I well I hope the audio-reproduction of the ice crunching and milk slurp was recorded accurately with your new Shure SM86 condenser mic! :-)

    digital man


    Have you tried the "clone" to that mic? Samson makes it.. its a .. (pics up mic) C-01. About $120 store bought, $30 extra for the shock mount, cool free case. 48V Phantom Powered Studio Condensor, the pattern is almost identical to Shures / Neiman / AudioTechnica similar mics. It doesnt have that super-nifty bass selector switch, but most decent mixers will have the lo-cut on each balanced channel. Give it a try next time you go to the toy store :)

    A royalty free sound byte ftp would be kinda cool. Back in the early 90's I recorded a toilet flushing.. made a voc.. and that thing went GLOBAL lol. I think it would be some fun :)

    Will do. I also have a set of Oktava "pencil" condensers that were pretty cheap, but they sound great. They have more "color" than the Shure's, but I like 'em a lot.

    Im looking at Behringer's B2-PRO Dual Diaphragm condenser now... 189 bucks.. and its got a bunch of names attached to it.. Alice Cooper.. Delmar Brown.. Buster Williams. With the quality of the "cheaper" end equaling what you'd pay 10x for.. I just dont see the reason to pay as much as I used to. With what I'd spend on that Shure.. I could get 2 mics, plus another compressor. Im in NO way downing Shure.. they're remarkable... but so are these :D

    I know about 5 or so years ago I found a true studio sound card in one of the mags I read.. was bout $500 for the card but had all the in/outs you could imagine as well as enough other stuff added on that it could have rivaled a small recording studio. Now though.. who knows.. try Creative labs to start. They may have soemthing or try google/excite.

    Wow I hadn't heard that. That might be a good thing.

    I was recoring on the computer but have since moved back to hardware using t VF-160. Both have pros and cos, recording in the computer is probably bette but I needed more inputs recoding at once and I didn't want the hassle of installing a sound card for each additional input.

    I ran my mixing board into my sound card line in. It opened up a lot more options for me.

    I used to be quite anti-computer when it came from music production, but
    I purchased an audiophile sound card, cubasis, sound forge and acid and
    I've decided that it's a lot nicer to work with recordings with a mouse and something I can visually see on my computer. I usually record one track
    at a time, so I don't need more than 2 inputs. The do have some sound
    cards that can handle multiple inputs. But that starts to get more expensiv

    Conscentity

    I am only using a Turtle beach Montego 2 Quadzilla sound card, it is great for stereo. I would like to do some experimenting with suround sound audio recording on the computer. I am clueless as to what software and hardware I would need. Can it be done with multiple sound cards or do you have to buy a high end card that is designed for this. And what softwre should I use.

    I use Cool Edit Pro V2. As far as I can see, it is only stereo, but it can do a lot of stereo tracks recording and mixing.

    I figure I can create the surround sound recordings I can Burn them to DVD and play them on my DVD surround sound system.

    Cubase SX has Surround sound capability, but I have never messed with that before. You'd probably need a sound card that handles 5.1 or something like that. That's all I can think of.
