  1. I'm still using Sony ACID Pro and Sound Forge. I've tried lite versions of Cubase and Ableton, but I guess you work best with what you know. It looks like Sony is never going to upgrade ACID Pro again. I plan to buy a new computer soon and I'm bound to run into compatability issues sooner or later so I'm looking for something else. Ableton is popular but pricey and I'm not completely sold on Reaper. FL Studio (the old Fruity Loops) is selling surprisingly well. Not sure where to turn.
  2. Downloaded mine yesterday without a hitch. Haven't had a chance to put it through its paces yet.
  3. How about James Dewar in the classic lineup of the Robin Trower Band. His voice was made to sing those songs like "Bridge of Sighs" and "Day of the Eagle".
  4. My studio is a bedroom in my condo so I can't get too loud. My setup is a Lexicon Lambda into an HP Pavilion desktop running Sony ACID Pro. I have Sony Sound Forge to edit, Izotope Ozone for mastering, and I'm building a collection of plug-ins, too. I track using Audio-Technica ATH-M40/fs Studiophones. I've been thinking of going to the Focusrite Saffire 6 as the pres should be better than what I have now. I don't need all the inputs since it's just me doing all of the instruments one at a time. Also, I'll be getting a couple of Shure SM57s so I'll be able to record outside the box.
  5. I have a Fender Vibro Champ XD. It's not a true valve amp, more of a hybrid, but it does produce some good sounds and it's great to record with . . . and it's cheap.
  6. I've been using ACID Pro for about 5 years now. I've tried others like Cubase which IMHO is not easy to use. I spent a lot of time with the manual before I moved on. Also, I've used Ableton Live which has gotten popular over the last couple of years.
  7. Here's my faded cherry 2007 Gibson Les Paul Studio . . .
  8. Stormy Monday - Allman Brothers Band Twin LPs.
  9. Hi Blackened -- I just upgraded to ACID Pro 7 and the learning curve is a bit steep. Do you have Sound Forge? I've fixed the same problem by using the Volume tool under SF's Process tab. Upping the volume just a few dBs is all you need. BTW if you haven't heard, there is a "Loudness War" going on. Over the last 15 or so years CDs have gotten louder, but the sound quality has become poorer because of overly compressed audio tracks. Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_war
  10. I have 13 from Gibson, Epiphone, and Fender plus a Squier P-Bass.
  11. I have an old TASCAM Pocketstudio 5, but I've moved on to recording with my PC. I use a Lexicon Lambda interface and Sony software -- just upgraded to ACID Pro 7 and Sound Forge 9 -- the learning curve is steep! I have a Line 6 PODxt and a bunch of stomp boxes and plug-ins. No mikes, so far all of my recording is direct.
