Re: After 15 years, need an upgrade

I think last year when I upgraded, to get ahead of the technology curve, it was something like $950 for the Asus MB with TB3, an i9 Intel Chip and a bunch of ram. Then I went with a Lynx Aurora (n)...

Re: Anybody here ever tried mixing on Artist Series Units like they were analog?

I've done it a few times just for kicks. It's helpful to stretch the ears occasionally but currently using an Artist Mix and Artist Control just for automation and summing into a mixer. I need the...

Re: Midi Editing Window Sluggishness

Yep jumpy note behavior. Notes delete when you start to move them when you don't want it delete. Jumps left and right but never locks before eventually locking to the position you wanted.

Re: "Gearing Up" Advice

You will need a lot of cables and spend more than you can imagine on them. A patchbay may be in your future. If you can solder, it will reduce your wiring costs.

Re: Windows 10: Cursor and Rulers disappear from timeline

Not seen this at all in my Win 10 system. I have an older GeForce GT 1030 and not seeing this. This is a pretty basic graphics card as I don't use games on my PT system.
