Yeah, hassle is an understatement!! Figuring out how to burn cd's could take days!! I bought mine in 97-98 somewhere and sold it around 01, when I had access to multiple Pro Tools rigs.

If I have it open or whatever and its right there, its one thing.

May be no exact in rock 'n roll, but there is an exact with the Eleven Rack to my ears. Some of the parameters make all the difference is they are just 0.2 either way.

Thats whats so great about the Editor, its also faster for me to type in a couple numbers than switch effect pages and knobs on the front panel.

I can have my guitar in hand, a pick and use the mouse and keyboard without ever putting anything down or reaching for a knob.

I don't have the problem of having to launch something just to make a change because PT is always open here.

The addition of a standalone editor is the perfect solution. If you prefer to use the front panel - continue on. If you prefer to use no DAW and an Editor, now you can. If you prefer to use Pro Tools 11 and an Editor that's possible now too.

It took Avid awhile, but the wait is almost over :cool:

NAMM is not too far off. :-)

:D

I had a Boss BR-1600CD

Use to mic a guitar amp, bass amp, a few drum mics and kick triggers, and run a mic into that thing.

We had 3 or 4 sweaty guys in a 10X14 room along with all the gear INCLUDING a double bass drum kit.

Those were the days :rolleyes:

Man it was LOUD in there! :eek:

I do a lot of my intense practices without Pro Tools on, or its on and monitors off. Have memory locations created I can recall without looking at the screen. I cant have the distraction when running my 64th note Petrucci runs at 150 bpm!! ;)

Plus when recording seriously, I have to be back away from my computer and monitors as the RF interference is always there.

Even with humbuckers? The Texas Special single coils in my SRV Strat are the only ones that give me any kind of RF problems. And that's only because of the noisy power transformer across the street:mad:

Kinman pickups and Dimarzios Area 58 pickups are worth a try. I have a set of Kinman wood stock. They're dead silent and sound as good if not better than the best of the best true single coils.

I gave my son my old Mexican strat and we fixed it up and installed Area 58 and 59 pickups in it, great hum cancellation, and very nice sounding pickups (better than Fender noise canceling). It also has full copper foil lined cavity and a copper backing on the pickguard. All that was done to stop noise when he was playing near his iMac. It totally fixed that issue.

The worst electrical noise generator in our house is the refrigerator. If I could drink warm beer that thing would be turned off.

Just an email that went out to some users prematurely announcing the stand alone editor being available, which it is not. All you need to know is already in this thread. The email won't help you.
