Re: Software (OS X) that can read Akai S1000 CDs /CD ISO

Translator is the only 'current' option really, and honestly I wouldn't waste my money on it. The software sucks and the "company" itself is pretty terrible if you've ever seen the 'owner' engage with customers online. Theres still the old CDXtract, Extreme Sample Converter, Awave, etc..

Re: Does anyone make a decent analog console anymore?

Pretty happy with the two Soundcraft LX7s I own so far.. Started with the 16 channel LX7 and just upgraded to a 24 channel LX7II a week or so ago. Now I have direct outs on the first 16 channels, the other 8 on the right side of the master section act as my fx returns so I can bus those to the group...

This goes into its own mixer channel and feeds back into its own send. Dub madness just by turning up the channel fader. Lexicon M...

Re: Akai MPC One

I rather guess that a lot of people this MPC is aimed at have a workflow that doesn't require more outputs. For example if you use it entirely standalone with nothing else it's fine. Or if you use it together with a computer and DAW it has all those advanced exporting options. But if you want to us...

Re: question about Nord Modular

The obvious advantage is having a standalone hardware synth with Nord Modular (to a lesser extent with Micro Modular). If that does not matter to you, Reaktor or perhaps VCV Rack would be the route to take for me. Why the "to a lesser extent" with the MM? It's just as standalone as any of the other...

Well, VCV isn't restricted to living inside Ableton Live, VCV uses a language most programmers already know like the back of their hand, and not everyone uses Ableton Live, let alone with a seperate Max license just to code, plain and simple.
