Re: Soundcard recommendation ???

God, I so didn't want to do this but........bump! After reading all of the advice here, I still find myself with an issue. The cards recommended here either have major Windows 7 64bit driver issues, or are end of line (as per Analogs findings too) or have latency issues (Xonar). I good solid USB car...

Re: Soundcard recommendation ???

Necropolo - thanks for the great advice and tips (also Razmo). Those do look good products and ones that I'd not really considered. I was just about to buy the Xonar before I posted this, but I've read lots about it's awful latency problems, and there are no plans to rectify it, so the other firms m...

Soundcard recommendation ???

Okay - I know I'm always on here looking for advice, and this is one for me. I want a sound card for my new PC rig and would like some suggestions/advice if possible. I have PCI and PCI-E slots available. The primary use would be to allow low latency use of midi keyboards (I use a EMU X-Board 49) I ...

Re: New remix of Wizardry

Very nice and I agree it sounds fresh and retains the feel of the original. Always been a bit of a favorite with me, although limitations of the tune length make a longer composition difficult. I initially had an idea of incorporating FAIRLIGHT from Mike Alsop as well as they are entirely the same t...

Re: In need of audio / mic recording advice

Thanks for all of the advice guys, it's a great response as always from the "team". Just for point of interest, she won't be singing or playing any instruments, just purely spoken word audio. I think Jeroen has it spot on in terms of offering advice to a none techie, and plus....she lives about 800 ...

Re: SID's in remixes

Yeah, this is a subject close to my heart. I love the sound of the sid, and if implemented well it still sounds great. Often I prefer mixes with original sid mixed in, almost list a gentle nod to the roots of the original. I still recall Chris Abbotts first Back in Time Sanxion remix, with odd bits ...

Re: Question regarding my balsa wood models...

You could always give them some "functionality". Try adding a slot and turning them into a money box ? Of course you'd have to figure out a way people could get to their cash as well.

Re: In need of audio / mic recording advice

Check Mahoney's wonderful tutorial: Yes, always a great starting point, but this lady really needs to get the hardware basics right before moving on I feel. Hence the questions relating to pre-amp and soundcards. Also, does her running linux cause a problem too? She has tried using an XLR to pc inp...

Re: Bit off topic but....SlamTilt pinball - Windows 7

Wow ! You guys are the best....let me tell you! Slamtilt now working really well - all colours perfect after I followed the hunch by Analog and Lman. Compatability mode set to WIndows 98/ME and all of the options below that ticked. Thanks to all that took the time to help, but now I have another pro...

Bit off topic but....SlamTilt pinball - Windows 7

Hi Sorry for the off topic-ness. I've always loved SLamtilt by 21st Century since the AMiga days. I have the PC version which flatly refused to run on XP (Windows 98 is the last known working system). I've now upgraded to Windows 7 and thought I'd give it a spin after hearing some old games actually...
