Re: USB Firewire Faster than Firewire??

Firewire is way superior to USB for a reason that has nothing to do with bandwidth... it's in the protocol. Firewire is "isochronous" - a device can reserve bandwidth for its stream. USB ain't got it...

Re: Digi002 Firewire and DV Camera or Camcorder

They must mean at the same time. Firewire has a key advantage USB does not - it is "isochronous" - this means that a device can reserve bandwidth for itself on the bus, on a first-come, first-served...

Re: Active monitors - your opinion...

I use a pair of Yamaha MSP5s. My space is quite limited and at the low levels I monitor (and the other priorities in my budget which turned me away from Genelecs), I am satisfied with them.

Re: PC - Mac compatability via drives

this extension didn't ring a bell... that's normal, since I am running French Mac-OS v9.2.2. This extension (same rev) is called "Traducteur CD"... my understanding was that this was a CD-media only...

Re: PC - Mac compatability via drives

I'll fish out one of my HFS+ drives and pop it into my old PC with MacOpener, I am curious to test their compatability claim.

As for popping a PC-formatted drive into a Mac (or connecting via...

Re: DV VIDEO

It's true that some DV camcorders have analog passthrough - you connect composite or S-Video to the camcorder which converts into a DV stream on the fly which goes right into the mac over firewire. I...

Re: OT-Shouldn\'t There Be Just One Speaker?

Ideally, it's not one, or even two, or 5.1 speakers that are necessary... it's more like... TWENTY-FOUR.

Surround yourself with twenty-four speakers... each playing a track. Bring a speaker...

Re: are there any quality (handheld) recorders?

Minidisc is your best bet for low-cost field recording - ATRAC compression native to MiniDisc is not too evil - just make sure you have a decent mic or mics up front.

Consumer DATs work great but...

Re: syncing Sony VX2000 digital video camera w/001?

I agree, I think it would be simplest to record sound into the camera - at capture time your video is locked to your audio, simplifying edits.

As far as I know the audio portion of a DV stream is...

Re: Is the digi mp3 option good?

The MP3 algorithm was developed by researchers at Germany's Fraunhofer Institute.

Re: Bouncing PTLE sessions to .wav file help!

hmmm what I'm confused about is why you would want to burn an audio CD for sharing files - that's what iTunes does, right? If you do that, then you need to rip stereo files from the Red Book audio.

Re: Emailing mp3s???

MP3 is already compressed... if lower bitrate still creates too large a file maybe you should consider encoding with a higher-compression codec like RealMedia or the QDesign Muscic codec
