  3. Hi Peeps, Now that I am finally admitting to myself that I have a bit of a cable issue, I need to start looking into replacing some of my current cables for "critical services." I have googled the phrase "balanced cables" as this is what I am interested in and, to be honest, like most things, it is a bit of a mine field. Who is telling me the truth about their gear? For instance, I already have cables that have "high quality" or some such statement printed on the cable but is that just a load of rubbish? How do I know for sure what the real quality of an audio cable is? Is there some sort of standard I should be looking for? Again, I have searched for that and all I find are reviews by third parties or claims by manufacturers that their cables are best. Can anyone recommend a particular brand of cable? And, of course, there is more to cables than just the actual wires. The means of connecting those cables to your equipment are probably just as important as the actual cable. The two that I am looking at are XLR male plugs and 1/4" TRS jacks. I seem to recall, going back twenty years or so, that Neutrik were a good brand, and they are still available today. Are they that good? Are there better? And, finally, is it best to make up your own? DIY cables, to me, seem to be the only way of ensuring any kind of quality, providing that you are handy enough with a soldering iron. I've spent an hour this morning searching the interwebs and I struggle to find just the right cable, in terms of length and end connector configuration. So I am definitely considering buying the bits in and making my own. That way I can make the cables exactly the right length and configuration to suit my exact requirements. Okay Peeps, hit me! cheers andy
  4. Hi guys, I have some serious latency problems when recording audio from my hardware synth in cakewalk. I tried to record audio from my monologue and prophet 08, and both times the audio was delayed. I tried to play the audio directly and also via midi signal from daw to synth, but with the same results. i played with the latency settings in cakewalk, but it didn`t really do anything . I have a PC running Win7 and a Steinberg UR22 Interface.

  6. Hi Peeps, My youngest lad is an occasional drummer. He has a reasonable acoustic kit but he hardly plays it since getting his own house due to the usual reason of upsetting the neighbours. He mentioned he was thinking of getting an electronic kit so I thought I'd ask around see what peeps think here. Having watched some YouTube reviews for a couple of kits including Roland, Yamaha and Alesis and out of all of them, for a budget, I think the Roland TD-17KVX was the best. The TD-17KVX appears to have a much nice set of triggers which includes a hi-hat that you mount on a proper stand and a snare trigger that is a cut above the triggers on the lower priced TD-17 kits. There still appears to be a little problem with the "machine gun" issue but I reckon that, if we record a MIDI performance as opposed to audio then the machine gun effect can be fixed, and it would also allow for using other kit sounds too. So, yeah, what do you think? cheers andy
  7. Hi Peeps Just to explain I have spent around the last two weeks now, going between Cakewalk and REAPER, trying to incorporate my outboard effects in my test projects. I have been having no end of issues with terrible and somewhat inconsistent "timing" issues when trying to synchronise my hardware MIDI gear and my modular system. I have posted elsewhere about that so I will not go into details here. My school boy error I found out only the other day, from a post in the REAPER forum, that I should be pinging the outputs/inputs while the effects in the outboard units are bypassed, which is especially important with reverb. Because of my ignorance I was getting wildly different delay times when pinging, anything between 2000 to 4000 samples in Cakewalk's External Insert plugin. Now that I know that, and I have re-pinged my instances of External Insert (in Cakewalk) and ReaInsert (in REAPER) I am pretty much getting stuff synchronised now. Still some issues, but I don't think they can be linked with my outboard effects. A question Okay, now that I "think" I know what I am doing, I have a question There is a big difference between Cakewalk's and REAPER's insert plugins, in terms of delay. In External Insert, the delay is being reported as 1215 samples. In ReaInsert the delay is being reported as 70 samples. And so the question is, why is there such a big difference between the reported delay times in the two plugins? What to do? I'm in a quandary. I really want Cakewalk to work for me. As I have been getting back into Cakewalk I have reminded myself what a great DAW it is. I love instrument definitions, how you can edit them so that things like patch names and controller names are presented properly in Cakewalk and therefore easier and quicker to apply/assign to MIDI tracks and envelopes. But while using my outboard effects the delay between hitting a key on my controller and the note sounding is simply too large, even for a sloppy player like myself. Advice (now were are getting to it...) Is there anything I can do to tackle the delay issue? Am I using External Insert correctly? Could I manually change the delay time to a lower value and hope that it works (I suppose I should just try that)? Am I expecting too much from my setup? (in-depth details here) Okay, I think that covers it, I'll hand it over for consideration and hope that someone is able to help. cheers andy
  8. Another one for the hardware sub forum I wasn't going to spend any more on my hobby this year but I am coming to the conclusion that my trusty old CLEVO i7 laptop ain't up to the task anymore. So I am currently spec'ing up a new desktop. I use a company in the UK called PC Specialist and their website is great for building up a spec. They even have a so called "Pro Audio" solution but I'm not so sure about that. I know I've titled this post "ASUS or Gigabyte" but I'll probably ask more questions along the way, although that may also depend on the speed of service I receive here So, yeah, which mobo then? ASUS or Gigabyte? I'm probably not going to go for the latest processors and what have you. For the case I'm going for a mid tower with 3 off 140mm fans:- https://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define-series/define-r6-black CPU will probably be an Intel® Core™ i7-9700K3.60GHz12MB L3 cache 8 cores 8 threads. Probably 32GB RAM... There's more... don't go away...
