Saffire LE + Mountain Lion / Mavericks

Hey folks. I'm going to contact Focusrite as well, but just wondering if anybody here is using a Saffire LE with Mountain Lion. I'm still on 10.7, and the Saffire LE isn't on Focusrite's officially-supported list for 10.8, but just wondering if maybe it works anyhow. Trying to plan the eventual upgr...

Gearbox, to me, is the absolute best sounding AND most CPU efficient emulator of any of the Big guitar plugs. I use a POD xt for demoing, which I think does the same processing as the Gearbox plug, and I have a heck of a time getting good crunch tones. I think it does a good job of clean or cleanis...

You might want to try a tape saturation plugin to give the vocals a little hair. (Usually they also do a little EQ-type work, as well.) I wouldn't say you'll necessarily get "warmth" from it, but it can liven up sterile-sounding tracks. If you just want to try something free--that can defi...

Nthing the 7506s; I love mine. They're a little hyped in the top and bottom, but for the price, the isolation, comfort, and level of detail are pretty great.

It's do-able, but one warning: I've tried to record my PODxt over USB while simultaneously recording through a SaffireLE over Firewire, and it's a no-go. For whatever reason (maybe it's losing sync?), the POD signal graudally degrades, and by the end of a take it's just noise. It really ought to wor...

Glad to be helpful, Ploki. Hyper Editor is actually much better for drum sequencing than I expected it would be. Lawson, here's the screenshot of my set for Addictive Drums. Super-convenient! Hope it helps...

hey ozzy, could you please snap a screenshot of your hyper edit screenset? I have been searching for the best way to input/edit midi info for drums.... this sounds like it is a great system, but I'm a little bit confused as to what you're talking about. :lol: Sure, I'll try to remember to post a sc...

Hyper Editor is probably the answer, here. Have you actually looked at using it for drum editing? It's not just for advanced parameters--it can be completely customized. It'll give you the matrix editing you're looking for without fiddling with the piano roll. Create a new region in your drum track ...

Have you upgraded AD to 1.1? Multi-outs won't work (at least in Logic 8) until you do.

Honestly, I don't use Melodyne, so I can't say for sure, but I don't think I'd want to use the plugin for this kind of work. Better to load the file externally, change the pitch, and re-import it into your project. Looks like you can do that with Melodyne Uno, even. Download the demos of each and gi...

I've noticed, actually, that when I bounce (on my 1st-gen Intel iMac), only one of the CPU meters pegs. The other stays at zero. Take a look at your CPU graphs--you might notice that Logic isn't using all your processing power when doing an offline bounce. In a mix where you're heavily taxing more t...

I've been using Line 6 gear for a long time, but I could never get a good hot-but-not-super-high-gain tone out of it. Think 90s alt-rock: Pearl Jam, Weezer, the first Foo Fighters album. It does great clean-to-gritty tones (I love the Hiwatt sim), and pretty good heavy tones (if a little fizzy), but...

As you've noticed, when you start turning up reverb, it turns into a big, washed-out mess. In dense mixes, you're often better off sticking a short slapback delay on your vocal track and leaving it at that (I like the Tape Delay plug, although you might want a stereo delay). If the mix is a little m...

In that setup, even with the "BG 1 HORN" fader pulled all the way down, I think signal would still come through on the effect send buses (your "horn verb" and "horn comp" auxes, in this case).

I actually did this on a rock track where I had a really thin, but crack-y kick drum, although I did it a bit more simply, by just sticking a noise gate right on the sine wave track and sidechaining it to the kick track. Worked great.

Have you applied the 8.0.1 update yet? I had this problem too, before the update. Works fine, now. (Although how such a thing even makes it into the 8.0 release is mind-boggling...)

You don't need to send signal to bus since LP8 can now use tracks directly for side chaining (as in my example above).


But, but ... I like having 50 buses in a session! :lol: Kidding... thanks for the tip.

Maybe this isn't what you're looking for--maybe it's what you've already tried--but I actually just needed to do this last night. First, I created a track with a basic synth (anything with a very fast attack and release works) and routed it to a bus. Then I inserted a Noise Gate (fastest attack and ...
