prime example of horrible mastering and a case where vinyl is the winner You bet. My favorite example is Iggy & the Stooges' "Raw Power", which was deliberately recorded, mixed & mastered for vinyl (by Iggy & Bowie) to sound, well, very raw. :roll: The remastered version, done by the Ig himself, is...

I think DirectX is still a viable platform for plugins & virtual instruments; it's become marginalized only because it's Windows-dependent. Unfortunately, Macs still rule the roost in the studio, for better or worse... :P Rhetorical question, a little OT: Mac devotees try to paint Bill Gates as the ...

these systems/methods are half-gimmick half serious. Pretty much as I'd suspected. Friends of mine will argue for hours over the advantages/futility of (home) recording & mixing at, say, 24/96, when the final output ends up as 16-bit anyway. Until the next "real" advance in sound reproduction comes...

I have a Brian Eno boxed set that was supposedly mastered in a similar fashion, but years ago....Sony called their process Super Bit Mapping, & they claimed it enabled 20-bit resolution on "regular" CD players. I thought that was BS, frankly. Have you noticed better sound quality with this HDCD form...

If it's a well-edited, seamless loop, just copy it to the clipboard, Paste to New, then paste it twice more into your new file. There you are....60 seconds. Make sure to save your original file, just in case. :!:

the pulsating effect will be removed completely.
Thanks. I use GW so often, for so many different projects, that looking at that iridescent cursor all day might bring on an acid flashback. :wink:

Many consumer-level sound cards (like Creative's SB line) come with features & software applets that allow the user to add real-time effects, like echo, chorus, reverb etc. I don't know what you have there, but my old SBLive's AudioHQ applet lets me do exactly what you've described.

Hope this helps.

From http://goldwave.ca/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2267 : That is not a bug. That is part of the new persistent playback cursor and keyboard navigation design. "That's not a bug, that's a feature!" lol I can live with it if I must, but I'd prefer to have the option of turning it off. Maybe for the next ...

I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing, Kummel....mainly because playback does not resume at the "ghost cursor" position! :wink: I use the "old" editing style, & when I stop playback, the "actual" cursor returns to the beginning of the file, as always. Also, I don't see any "cursor" option ...

Cursor 'ghost' remains after playback is stopped

I'm running GW 5.22 (thanks for keeping GW compatible with WinME, Chris!), & there's one change that's annoying me... When I start playback, the playback cursor (which now shimmers as it travels across the waveform) scrolls through the file, as always, but when playback is stopped, a white line rema...

I'd apply the differing echo params within Cubase, before exporting & recording your MIDI file into Goldwave.

If your USB device driver has a duplex setting, make sure it's set to "full duplex". You should also run Goldwave Setup & make sure the the "Allow playback while recording" box is checked.

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks again for your valuable input and help ! Well, you're very welcome, but I didn't actually help you solve anything....then again, re-defining the problem & embracing the work-around is often the only/best way to go with our Commodore 64's, uh, I mean WinME boxes. :wink: Chris (author of MQ), ...
