I wouldn't expect it to sound any different I just don't like the politics of MH.

Out of curiosity, what are Metric Halo's politics?

A tertiary endorsement with an eye on SADiE native.


You must have a Windoze PC idling on the side for Plextools!

If I were gonna add that into the equation, I'd probably add WaveLab 7 on our Plextools WindowsXP/Mac Mini, and get fluent with it on both platforms.

Perhaps you just like Sexy Sister Sadie, is she beckoning to you?

Cheers, JT

p.s. can we get a quaternary endorsement?

To put this to rest-
Metric Halo has no corporate political philosophy; we do not officially or unofficially have any political stance. We just make gear. As individuals, our beliefs are varied.

Dave Collins made an assumption about us which was incorrect. We've spoken and understand each other, which is all that needs to be said.

To bring this back on topic, my fumbling attempts at mastering/CD assembly are done in Wave Editor. You know, for that one CD I do every year or two!

What about your alliance with Sonic?

I do have a couple of Windoze PCs (two with Plextools and Plextor drives) but in this case it's a Mac Pro running boot camp. A simple reboot and all of the hardware and connections are ready to go (assuming no ASIO issues).

Also the Pro Tools sessions are totally compatible between OS/X and Windows (other than plugs which aren't supported on both).

Over the holidays adding a Snow Leopard HDD for sB 2.0, WL7, and PT9 with an extra Lynx AES 16e card for experimentation.

I was able to do a version of this scenario within a few hours tonight.

PT8 > soundBlade on the same machine, at different sampling rates.

Rather than repeat post in two different forums, I'll provide a link:

I would wait for version 7.01 of WL7 since it is suppose to "fix" a lot of the problems that version 7 has. It is suppose to be out by the end of the month. It is in Steinberg's QC right now.

Maybe kind of unconventional here, but I'd been using both pieces of software for years before I started mastering:

Adobe Audition for topping and tailing, generating statistics, and looking at the overall waveform, and AudioMulch for playback/transfer/capture.

(Plus Sonoris plugin for dither and Voxengo r8brainPRO for SRC)
