  1. I think the answer to my question is yes. Long leg is positive, short negative. Use two leds soldered oppositely.
  2. @Craig Anderton, I've bought a pack of red 3mm leds and I'm ready to solder. I'm not great at reading the spec and i cannot tell if i can put them on backwards or not. Do i just solder on 2? Do they need to be inverted? I can't tell one side from the other on the leds. They all have one leg longer than the other. Is that the tell? Put one one way and the other the reverse?
  3. I tried today with my Frontier Alpha Track and it worked ok. I must say, I don't use it for that. 🙂
  4. I'm trying to understand but this isn't enough for me to get there. All editing has been working fine for me, but i might not have hit your use-case.
  5. Use whatever driver works. Does your headset have a battery? The obvious implication is that power for driving the speakers and the preamp for the Mic might be insufficient. Does it work better if you plug in the laptop? I used to record using a laptop internal soundcard with a preamp. You can get a single channel preamp for around $40 usd.
  6. I don't switch screensets while recording. Once was enough to learn that lesson. For me, they change quickly enough. It is true that I'm very fast getting the view i want whether changing current view or using a screenset. When i take time to lay out an array of fx for viewing, it is easier to save it as a screenset. I have a good video driver but only 16gb ram. I don't use lenses yet. They are more recent in my cakewalk experience and i haven't had a need for them.
  7. screen sets? (you can use the number keys on the keyboard to switch between screensets. Like you can have #1 have all the tracks small and #2 BIG and #3 medium with Auto Track Zoom ON and #4 Medium with auto track zoom off and #5 be your favorite synth maximized and #6 be your guitar Amp Sim maximized and #7 be Track View etc. You can lock these views or not lock them. If you don't lock them, any changes you've made stick when you move off of it.) https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=SONAR&language=3&help=WindowManagement.08.html Auto Track Zoom? Auto Track Zoom. This command enables/disables Auto Zoom, which allows you to automatically enlarge the track that has focus. All other tracks are minimized. When a new track is focused, it swaps heights with the previously focused track.
  8. Her mentions how he would never want to use midi from a daw on stage. I laughed at this. I love rapture pro merged with guitar.
  9. I have a family so I use an Amp Sim. THU currently. One of my favorite things to do is to fiddle with tones and then play a tone for a while and then fiddle some more. I often re-amp anything recorded using an Amp Sim. I use this re-amp box I soldered together from a kit... https://www.diyrecordingequipment.com/products/l2a It's pretty fun to put your guitar playing on a loop and then play with your pedals and amp until you get a sound you like. This means that when I have the house to myself, I can really focus on the amp and fx. Now, I definitely prefer to play through the Amp and on most Friday and some Saturday nights I get to. I think gear comes best dribbled into your life. It takes me a while to get used to new things. One or two new items a year is usually enough for me. I have tons of software I don't really use and some hardware. One of my favorite purchases is my Rivera Rock Crusher which enables me to turn up my 60 Watt amp without rattling the nails out of the walls. Amp Sims are huge repos of toys and you can really invest a lot of time to getting talented at using them. I make myself my own bank of sounds and save sounds in it as I go. That way I can remember things I've tried before. I also use an FCB1010 to control the amp sim so I have expression pedals and stomps to control those in the Amp Sim. Craig is an incredible musician and teacher. I have purchased a number of his books and videos and learned a ton. I'm very grateful for all he has taught me. One of the things I use the most is his Pop Filter in the Anderton Collection > Vox Tools. To me the thing is magic. 🙂 Thanks, @Craig Anderton Regarding Neve... I spent a lot of time reading the manual for the Shelford Channel and even made videos about it... I feel I learned a lot from how the Neve manual that helped me get ideas for how to use the gear I have.
  10. It's so cheap to try, if you really care about a mix, let them try and compare with your own. You might learn something that helps you do a better job on your own.
  11. ThreadSchedulingModel value to 3 I just tried this and played through a 12 bar blues. The midi tones got farther and farther behind the guitar tone from TH3 until I had to stop. I reset the value to 0 and everything works again. Any tips? Did I do it wrong?
  12. Using galbanum piscus, one patch i liked went bad after i pay for a few minutes on the patch in a project after dragging on an mp3 to play along with. Deleting and re-adding the synth doesn't help. Any other patch works fine. The troublesome patch works fine in a new project. Shrug. I don't really expect help, but i wanted to share. I love rapture pro. I think the patch is Cassini.
  13. I was describing track or project templates. You can make templates so when you open a new project everything looks the way you want it to. Track templates are great too... Jimmy's Taylor guitar settings... 😎 Sarah's breathy vocal with tempo sync delay... Anything you can think of. Then pull them in and tweak forward.
