Whether it is still true or now just legend, Source Connect NOW has had enough problems, failures, and dropped calls that most recording studios won't use it. SC Standard is becoming the standard for ...

Our condo's lower floor has condos on two sides, we're up against a hill on one side, and there's a thick forest between us and the school on the other side. Great external sound deadening in my studi ...

With Hervé recently joining us here, the idea of emulation software that allows Macs to run Windows software came to mind. Word2WAV, much admired software for phone messaging and e-learning work, only ...

I love them grits thick and rich, with a little butter and pepper, but I gotta make my own. They just don't serve them in restaurants out West, unless they load 'em up with shredded cheddar and Worces ...
