Default Re: Anyone happy whith the Digi 001??

My only complaint is that it doesnt come with $5 million cash so that I can quit my 'real' job and sit at home and play with it all day...

Other than that? Its been incredible... and exceeded most of my expectations software&hardware wise... of course the MIDI side is lacking a little... but its not a problem... sequence in Digi Performer, ave as general midi & import... problem solved

Da Crypt:

That's odd, I got $5 Million in the box. Look at the bottom under the foam.

Jack:

I love the 001. Taken for what its worth ($900) it is amazing. A four track tape recorder cost about that price not too long ago. At 24 bit with a good mic, the sound quality is incredible--almost lifelike.

I went from a four track Fostex to the Digi001 with very little experience in the recording studio and no hard drive recording experience at all. Last night I just recorded a full drum set for the first time and it's coming along great. Using a drum machine, I've recorded two tunes at 24 bit with about 20 tracks going, lots of editing and automated mixing and almost no hitches.

Just remember... Make sure your Mac system is one recommended by Digi and fully compatable with the Digi001. You will need an external mixer (or a lot of pre-amps) to record several tracks simultaneously (as in recording a drum set). And give yourself about three full days or so to get used to the system.

The Digi is amazing and a real bargain. The costs you may run into will be upgrading your other equipment (microphones, pre-amps, monitors) to keep up with the Digi's quality.

As much as I complain about the PTLE environment (at times), it gets the job done for me. It's not perfect, but I don't have a piece of software that is (and I'm a computer pro by day). I'm not going to return my 001 - that's for sure.

Geez, if we didn't complain about lack of features, all those programmers would be out of work!

Jack,

While reading this thread I realized that I haven't used the Otari 24 track machine in my studio since just after I set up the Digi001 at the end of November. Or Studio Vision, for that matter. Just Digi001, Peak 2.1, and Toast 4.0 have taken care of my (relatively modest) audio and MIDI needs. And I'm having more fun too.

I have had no PT Le crashes at all - no lost data.

If I had a demanding client coming in to track multiple instruments I think I would go back to the old analog machine. Not because the 001 couldn't handle it, but because I'm not proficient enough yet.

The 001 has definitely exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended.

Jeff D.

Jack, I think PTle is fantastic. The more I use it, the more I want to ditch my other software and use Pro Tools full-time. The only thing preventing me at present is LE's lack of virtual audio tracks (which is really my only complaint). But for many people 24 tracks will probably be adequate (at least for those who, unlike me, don't insist on having every little element in the mix kept on its own discrete track(s) until the final mix). It makes tracking a no-brainer, the editing runs circles around everything else I've used, and it just FEELS like a more solid, pro-caliber working environment than my audio sequencer. As long as you're aware of the current limitations and they don't pose a problem for you, I suspect you'd be hard pressed to get more bang for nine-hundred bucks.

i for one am ultra-pleased with how my 001 setup has been treating me. i got sucked into the digi way of life via a project 3 system in an audio production class i took two years ago. since then ive entertained the idea of getting a system myself, but the costs always outweighed my (hopefully) future benefits. with this thing however ive been mixing it up everyday after work with very little hassle beyond the hardware learning curve (ie getting everything to work together). its worth it man. and hell, you could always hock it on ebay if youre not down with it.

Best $850 I have spent in a long time. It is sheer bliss to hear my 24 bit Virus B running directly through the 24 bit converters of the Digi001. Also, editing and routing in PTLE is totally flexible and robust. I LOVE this setup...
