Re: NEW ADL600 presonus (very nice preamp!) HELP!!

No plugin based compressor will get rid of clips that occur prior to or at the converter. You have three options: lower the gain of the pre or pickup something like the A-Designs Atty or get an...

Re: Plug ins chain

You can always import a track from a previous session sans audio, then move or copy the new audio into that track.

Re: Nasty Transients

Re: Conversion Primer Anyone??

Try Nika Aldrich's book at Sweetwater. That's about the best summation in layman's terms you'll find.

Re: Tweak Head

Tweak Head is merely an anti-aliasing filter choice you can use when converting sample rates. It's the "best" filter offered in pro tools, and happens to be a bit more complex than the others. On a...

Re: ISRC-code, how to?

Re: 002r pre\'s

The preamps are of a design proprietary to digidesign. No one makes them for Digi. They are remarkably clean and clear...and in some instances, too hot. Sonically, to my ears they are very similar...

Re: OT - pa question

Re: CD Manufacturing

I think the cost of mastering might surprise you at how cheaply some places perform the duty...especially those attached to replication facilities.
