    I wound-up not getting an iPad to take with me to the sandbox, but I will have a laptop. Is there a Mac OS equivalent to the iOS JamUP? My focus is mostly on the "practice tools" side of things (backing track, play along, tempo/pitch adjust, etc.). I will have a PreSonus AudioBox iOne sent...

    POD HD or POD X3 (desktop). I'm on USA! Hola hola! :) I'm looking for a pod HD/X3 desktop version. A friend of mine is living on Miami, so you can send it there instead of shipping internationally to me. Let me know what you have. Thanks for your time, Frank :wub:

    Hi guys, Just sharing some information on the BIAS Desktop release for those of you interested. BIAS is a guitar amp modeler with Amp Matching technology that offers an entirely new concept of putting any tube amplifier tone and feel into a plug-in (AAX/RTAS/AU/VST) for Mac and PC. It...

    Positive Grid - BIAS Explorer Looking forward to this. BIAS on the iPad sounds 100x better than any other VST/AU I've ever used.

    I've already done a fair amount of research and gone through so many changes in my build that I'm fairly confident the following list is what I'll end up with. However, I would like any insights any of you might have that I might of missed or never found out. Feel free to suggest other parts or...

    Chrome 32 brings a Chrome OS-style 'desktop' to Windows 8 I loaded it on my tablet, it's pretty good. The dock at the bottom is really handy, and it's a lot less buggy than the Metro version of IE. The only thing I miss from IE is the text prediction/autocorrect... but that just means I have to...

    I finally picked up some entry-level studio monitors (M-Audio AV 40, $75 for the pair via Craigslist) in preparation for mixing my acoustic project's first EP. It was immediately apparent that they needed to be raised off my desk about 8 inches. Conveniently, half cinder blocks are 8" cubes...

    For OS X: For iOS: I haven't tried the OS X version yet, as I'm still quite happy with Jump Desktop, but the iOS version is friggin' fantastic. Very responsive, right-clicking is easy, and the keyboard well laid out. I can't vouch for its quality, but it's also available on Android...

    I saw this on another forum. I quite like the idea but the clips in the video sound awful imho. Fryette Valvulator GP/DI Tube Guitar Recording Amplifier by Fryette Amplification - Kickstarter If it actually makes it to market i'd be interested in trying it out and hearing it in an actual...

    Having first played Half-Life on PC, I vastly preferred FPS's on PC, especially when I'd try to play Halo on my buddy's old Xbox. These days, I've found that once you get a hang of the controls, it's much nicer on a console, because I can sit my ass down on the couch, and play on a 40" tv with...

    Hello Metal Guitarist. I wish to acquire Desktop Monitors for home production, but I also wish they work very good with virtual amp simulators such as IKAmplitube3. I currently don't have any amp, cause I wish to know what I want on an amp before making a buy. AmpliTube3 allows me to get a...

    I looked and didnt see a thread on this yet... just posted on Line6. I'm assuming on par with the 500hd? POD HD Desktop | Studio Quality Recording For Home and Project Studios | Line 6

    I downloaded this yesterday because I have been using Rainmeter, and while it has some very sleek stuff, it can be a bit glitchy at times. At this point i'm running both Google Desktop and Rainmeter at the same time for different things. Google Desktop is pretty awesome accept for the stupid...

    So now that I have an awesome laptop I really don't even need my desktop computer anymore, so I'm looking to sell it but I don't know how much to ask for it. It's a slightly older Compaq SR2038X I got back in about 2004 or so, 2.9 GHz dual core AMD Athlon X2 64-bit processor, 4 GB PC2-4200 RAM...

    What does your setup look like? For example, what distro do you use? What software do you use for productivity (office,recording,etc)? What is your favorite method for running Windows apps (different flavors of wine)? etc. It's been a while since I've run linux on the desktop exclusively, so...

    Shit drive :yesway: When I built this PC back in February, I had an old 500 GB Maxtor SATA drive sitting around that was about 2-3 years old. I never used it, never even opened it, and figured it'd be great. I've posted a lot about my system crashing and having errors like not being able to...

    Added the Rain mStand, Acer 22" widescreen, and MS natural keyboard. Works nicely, and the incoming 15-20 page term papers will be much nicer on the MS keyboard than the laptop's keyboard. the Rain mStand was expensive for a stand (IMO), but it's really solid, and it's also solid aluminum...
