Re: Is There Such a Thing as a \"Slush Track?\"

I don't know about this specific term, but I know the concept of a "fill" track has been around pretty much since sync dialog began.

You can get more info from this book:

Re: Waves restoration

For about $1800 per plug-in, they should be a lot more than just "quite satisfactory." Piece for piece, they're at least as expensive as the CEDAR standalone boxes.

Re: mixing aesthetic for film

I think the reality is that it's a director's choice. Some modern directors have it in their head that everything has to have that "in your face" sound of close-miked dialog, even when it's not...

Re: LaCie - BEWARE....

No, I don't agree. I got totally screwed by Granite a couple of years ago when I bought a rackmount Firewire system from them. At the time, I had 120-gig drives in it, which were the current limit in...

Re: Firewire 800 to 400

Technically, I think you can. However, I believe you're better off never daisy-chaining drives. Instead, you should buy an inexpensive Firewire hub, connect the drives to that, and then connect the...

Re: We will All Be using PC\'s ?????

Correct. It'll look and feel exactly like the Mac you're using now, only what's inside the box will change. If anything, there could be a big speed bump (and maybe a price drop, if we're lucky).

Re: Waves Restoration and X-Click: Is It Working?
