« UFC 66: Liddell vs Ortiz 2 | Main | Conference Calling »

December 31, 2006



I am a system bueldir and have upgraded to Windows Vista Ultimate. Naturally, I have experience the same inline/Input Monitor issue that half the population has complained about. I even had gone as far as editing the registry, but that did not work. Instead, I just purchased an add on sound card from Creative. Now there is another issue that no one seems to have brought to the attention of the general population, and that is pertaining to streaming music. I have AOL, and listen to AOL radio. When I had Vista installed, I was only able to listen to stations that had a DJ, genre specific stations; I would receive a message indicating that the station is "temporarily unavailable". But when I reverted back to Windows XP Pro, I was able to listen to all stations. Apparently, this is a problem with all integrated sound chips like Realtek, SoundMax and SigmaTel, aka IDT and Windows Vista. So why are people just blogging about the issue, why aren't they contacting the source of the problem, Microsoft? I have left word with Microsoft/ Intel/ and IDT and waiting patiently for a response. I did receive one response from Intel and they claim that is exactly what Microsoft wanted to happen. Could it be that Microsoft is participating in the prevention of copy write infringement??? There are people out there that have spend money on advanced systems, and when they found out that they were unable to use the line-in/input monitor, they have returned their systems. Personally, I think we should get together and file formal litigation against Microsoft. They have been sued in the past, it can happen again.


Recording studios genreally consist of three rooms: the studio itself, where the sound for the recording is created (often referred to as the live room ), the control room, where the sound from the studio is recorded and manipulated, and the machine room, where noisier equipment that may interfere with the recording process is kept. Recording studios are carefully designed around the principles of room acoustics to create a set of spaces with the acoustical properties required for recording sound with precision and accuracy. This will consist of both room treatment (through the use of absorption and diffusion materials on the surfaces of the room, and also consideration of the physical dimensions of the room itself in order to make the room respond to sound in a desired way) and soundproofing (to provide sonic isolation between the rooms). A recording studio may also include additional rooms, such as a vocal booth a small room designed for voice recording, as well as one or more extra control rooms.Equipment found in a recording studio commonly includes:Mixing consoleMultitrack recorderMicrophonesReference monitors, which are loudspeakers with a flat frequency responseEquipment may also include:Digital Audio WorkstationMusic workstationOutboard Effects, such as compressors, reverbs, or equalizers Think twice before you want to set up a recording studio , unless you are filthy rich .


to COMPLETELY restore the latpop to its original state you would need the other way im afraid and by the way your asking if its possible without the disk im guessing you dont have the disk..or done something to it or gotta crack copy of vista..loluse the disk if you have it no other way..even if you take it to a special shop they will end up using a disk..


Hi David, I'm just looking to do music priocutodn professionally/commerically and investing in new equipment eventually to build a home studio and wondered if you could advise on hardware.I see you use a MacBook for your tutorials, and I've been looking at late spec iMacs, and also one guy I met is now upgrading from an iMac to a Mac Pro to produce soundtracks to video etc.Would you advise to start off low spec (MacBook Pro etc) and then upgrade later? OR get the highest spec & most expensive I can afford from the start?Whats the set-up you have in your home studio shown here?many thanks in advanceTim (London, UK)


Sorry man, you're not right about this product. Despite four arms there is only ONE MIC on it. Weird eh.I have to say, just bouhgt this and the mic quality is terrible. Might have to send back as I'm not convinced it will be any better than the laptop mic.
