Re: PSA: do *NOT* build your studio in a basement where it rains

Oh my fuck, had something like that as well. I had to dig a "well" next to the house to get the ground water to a deeper level :?

Re: Open Beta Video v0.5 - Digital Audio and the DSP meter

Interesting stuff, well done. Might be a bit too much stuff for some novice, but again, well done. According to the content of the video, would be nice to know how much DSP is used in which place and what i can do to improve it? The bus-stuff can be neglected i guess. So in the end my longest calcu...

Re: Open Beta Video v0.5 - Digital Audio and the DSP meter

Universal Audio UAD PCIe DSP Card A DSP card is a BIG addition to the purple bit, with its own bit of red. Remember that data it has to process is already in memory, so it has to go all the way back to the PCI bus, thats pretty much like having two audio interfaces in there. DSP chips right in the ...

Re: Open Beta Video v0.5 - Digital Audio and the DSP meter

@wendylou: Sure, anything your computer does and how it does it can affect these. The OS is an integral part to the HOW :) @4filegate: Right, if you stay out of the CPU and in the audio interface you can process more quickly, thats why ProTools uses DSP hardware or why theres the UAD Apollo. But if ...

Re: Open Beta Video v0.5 - Digital Audio and the DSP meter

Correct, good too see the video being appreciated :)

And yes, even using a "low-power" graphics card can help, disconnecting the network, not having too many USB devices. All of those add to the "purple" in the bar.

Re: Are you against GMOs too? Then hear me out.

we'll need to change ourselves to adapt.

Asperger and autistic types have more "value" in society, there is massive changes to...

Open Beta Video v0.5 - Digital Audio and the DSP meter

Hey, since I realize that I am sounding like a broken record on this topic but still seem to run into it over and over again I thought I'd finally put in the work and create a video I had in mind for a long time now. It explains the whole digital audio, buffer size and CPU/DSP meter issue in a hopef...

Re: Are you against GMOs too? Then hear me out.

Exactly, 100% agree except on the conclusions. My conclusion is that my consciousness seems to know best what consciousness is so I'll consciously decide that it knows that all of these shenanigans won't really change anything, just like they never did. Think about how far we actually are from what ...

Oh, you have actual raturn channels for the effects. You gotta be aware that Reason has this VERY quirky thing where a bus fader is at the same time a DCA for the sends of all channels that are routed to it.

We're kind of doing that already. If we used as much land per person as we did a hundred years ago there wouldn't be any space left.

Re: Parallel Compression – what’s really going on?

We can only hear it, not explain it, it seems. Perfectly fine with me. My technical knowledge is rather limited. Well it depends on what you do. If you have for example a compressor like the famous Neve 33609 then that particular compressor will create most harmonics when its reducing by about 6dB....

Re: Routed to a new output bus and send effects GONE.

Well the effects will not be "in the bus", they will be mixed in at the master using the returns. So if you bounce only the bus then yes, that is what is supposed to happen :)

I'm with you one hundred percent Normen. Most people against GMOs don't really understand the science, much less the issues of feeding an ever growing population. I think for most people it's just a "gut reaction." Gut reactions aren't always right, especially when working with limited understandin...

I don't think I've made up my mind completely yet, but if all is dandy and totally not harmful, why can't we have it labeled? I mean that way everyone can decided for themselves if they want to consume GMOs or not... Sure, like a scan with the phone and you can "zoom in" on any part of the producti...

100% agree on the corporation thing, good to see that many people start to discern more between the technology itself and whats being done with it in the context of corporations. Also agree 100% that such important things should be open and accessible. That is without corporations having to make mon...

Resistances of the plants are, for example, an unmanageable intervention in biological cycles. Well no, thats exactly my point. We manage them for thousands of years already.
