Re: Having difficulty setting up computer for audio

Audio interface and computer itself as well as all attendant software are both set at and running at 48kHz. Also, note that rebooting the machine into the earlier installation with no change to physical connections results in flawless performance. I still haven't figured this out. I'd rather not aba...

Re: Portable setup for recording natural sounds

I use a Tascam DR-05 It works well. I had only to invest the (short) amount of time required to learn how to operate it. That Tascam DR-05 is now an obsolete model but "digital recorder" is a mature format IMHO and most units sold should record reliably close to state-of-the-art quality audio. Inexp...

Re: studio monitors

This is an update... The Yamaha HS5 speakers remain an excellent choice for me. I have since changed location. I have put the studio into a larger room of a more conventional type of building. This building/room is built on the ground, of brick and stick frame construction, with drywall, carpet, cei...

Re: My opinion about everything (TL;DR)

There is an old saying: 'when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail' The saying may arise from this: "I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail." -- Abraham Maslow https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_the_instrument Tha...

Re: How can I eliminate pop sounds from alsa_in and zita-a2j working on ALSA loopback?

falkTX, I eagerly await the upcoming .ISO release. Any new news on the expected release date?

Re: studio monitors

As I still have problems with my third ! pair of Neumanns KH80 i'm going to switch them with the Presonus Eris 5 likely. I wanted to go for the KH120, but the guy in the music store said he would prefer the Eris 5 over the KH120, especially regarding the much lower price. The saved money I'll inves...

It's in a large-ish mobile home, up on stands, in the middle of nowhere, out in the boondocks. They are little light on the bass end b...
