PC audio hardware recommendations please!
TheRetroChief posted a topic in General ForumGreetings Audiophiles! Having not been able to find what I want through my own research online, I have come seeking recommendations from those in the know. This is the first forum I came across. I'm guessing you are mostly US-based judging by the default timezone it wanted to use? In which case, greetings from the UK :-) Many years ago, while I was studying at University I used to have a PC that had a Soundblaster card with a breakout box. It was particularly useful for inputting midi and a mic and monitoring with headphones. Now, in the coming months I will be doing a new PC build and although my useage has changed somewhat, I am looking for something similar which no longer seems to exist. I now have a small YouTube gaming channel which I co-host. I would like a panel/external box which can handle: 2 sets of headphones (3.5mm) with independent volume controls USB mic in with level indicator MIDI-in or another USB I will also need a suitable soundcard. Last time I was building a PC there were crazy amounts of options for soundcards. I did quite like the look of the SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatal1ty, but with it being over a decade old will no doubt be incompatible (don't think it works over PCIe). Essentially I am totally out of date when it comes to PC audio. Initially I will be wanting to record from one USB mic (Blue Yeti), while utilising two sets of headphones. But at some point I will want to probably use a couple of (musical) keyboards (Yamaha PSR7000 and microKORG) to do some sequencing work. I don't want to be faffing around the back of the PC all the time. I don't need top of the range. Equally, I don't want to be using the garbage that is generally on-board MB audio. I am also a gamer. Your suggestions would be most welcome. All the best, TRC
Mutec 3+ USB Midi Issues
Eddiechilli posted a question in Questions and AnswersDear Community, I have been reading audio forums for years and should thank everyone for their contributions that have made my listening so good. out of need and desperation I have shown to write my first post. Maybe it will help other users. January I bought a Mutec 3+ USB from Thomann. In my view this device is ice is one of the best I have ever put in the chain and lived up to all the reviews and opinions. Problem is that it is hardly working. I have a Mac mini late 2012 with 10.13 on it as the main digital listening source. The Mutec is sometimes seen by the Midi service most often not. So I have tried a lot of fault finding: Two other macs USB 2 vs 3 USB c Cables Power Different OS (Mojave vs Sierra) boot sequence factory resets For some reason the Mutec disappears of the midi and will not come back with any certainty. Then after all the methodical switching it will just pop up if I move the USB to a machine or port that did not work minutes before. I had a long dialogue with Chris at Mutec (CEO) and they could not help. This device sounds so great I do not want to scrap it. Has anyone solved this problem before. I have Audirvana, ITunes, Pure Music etc but the problem seems to be at the Midi, before the applications. chain = Mac > Mutec > minidsp 4x10> 4x power amps > 4 way speakers the Mutec locks on (blue light), sometimes does not get the right bit rate, sometimes does. Your wisdom and experience gratefully received Eddiechilli
Computer SynthesisI want to create a organ like synthesiser using my midi keyboard with control knobs. Initially, I would like 91 (synched) sinewaves, 9 of which can be used by a key at a time, depending on the volume levels of the 'drawbars' (drawbars will hopefully be changed with control knobs). I would also like to later amend it to use other waveforms, therefore I would prefer not to use samples. If I were using samples, i would use Kontakt for this project, and as that doesn't allow tone generation, I 'm not sure which software would be the best for playing this live. Any suggestions on the best software to allow this design?
A never before seen musical softwareHi everyone at Computer Audiophile forum, how are you? My name is Ricardo and I would loke present you a never before seen musical software called "Sonata". The software was the result of my Final Paper in Computer Science (2010), in which I and my friend developed a software that allows reharmonize piano scores automatically. Nowadays the software is published at google play in two versions: demo (free version) and complete (paid version). Ths urls to aoo is below: Demo version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.music.sonatamobile.demo'>https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.music.sonatamobile.demo Complete Version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.music.sonatamobile Basically our software accepts a midi file as entry, convert it to a piano score and after you can select among 4 reharmonization techniques to reharmonize the score and generate different versions of it. The software allow export the piano scores as Midi or PDF too. I hope you like our software. Suggestions and criticisms are always welcome!
