Fuck DSD, its all about DNI... Until I can feed the audio directly into my brain you can all just fuck off with this low quality shit. Direct Neural Interface or bust.
As an IT pro I will say go LCD for sure. Fuck it saves your eyes. Also the dual thing is hard to beat.Originally posted by Isosceles_CAT
Seriously though, this thing looks pretty nice. If your going to get it I would definitely go for the dual though, with the firewire option as well. Add a second LCD moniter and you have one insane workstation.
Are there audio connections and pre-amps in this thingy?Originally posted by Humanjava
So I read a bit more on thier site about that machine and basically it is a streamlined PC using AMD chips running on XP Pro. http://www.carillonusa.com/ aLso does similar stuff but you choose the computers based on the application you want to run, along with the specific hardware to compliment it.
A sadie would be all that if I went with lots of out board gear again. I would be hard pressed though to want to lean towards the Merging audio system though. Protool I am not nuts about for the midi. For audio editing it's about as easy as it gets. Nuendo is just as easy for me to though. Actually with its better midi and VST integration I can't really complain. In an ideal world hmmm I might go Nuendo for midi and control for my outboard synths and VST and a sadie or something for editing. Heck maybe even protools. I don't love PCM systems but am forced to use them. I do think in the next two years you will see DSD become very cheap. HEck its a 1 bit processor so computations are simple. Its almost as simple as running a low pass filter over a data stream because that is almost what you are listening to.Originally posted by codex
harsh??? yeah, I was, thats how I am....it's all in good fun...I am not saying that pro-tools is the best sounding?? I think that would be hard to judge [the sound of the software, that is]. but what I am suggesting, if you are doing audio, pro-tools is an extremely power audio editor...I use an LE rig every day, and a TDM rig w/pro control about twice a week...I am well versed in neundo [and cubase sx, obviously] and logic, but for audio editing, pro-tools hands down.
and to suggest a sadie system? no doubt it's superior, we actually have one and an hd rig in our 3rd studio [which I am unfortuantely never in], but do you think a sadie system is realistic for what us cats are looking for?? is not an extremely expensive system?
