New music gear arrived today. It’s like it’s Christmas all over again. I am beside myself.
After 10 years of using Digidesign’s Digi 001 in conjunction with my custom built PC as the DAW of choice around here (and being stuck at Pro Tools version 6.4 for the last several years), it’s insanely exciting to be upgrading a little bit.
Now I have more preamps (which means we can record more stuff at one time) and the current version of Pro Tools (which means we can use updated virtual instruments and plug-ins and all kinds of other cool stuff). And it’s all getting hooked up to the Mac Pro.
Of course I have to rewire the whole place now. And my Mac only has Firewire 800 ports, so I have to wait for the adapter to come so I can connect everything. But I don’t care. I feel like a little kid!
BTW, all of this gobbledygook translates to better sounding music coming out of the DD69. Trust us.
