  1. The Digidesign method (that Steinberg kept after Cubase stopped requiring Digidesign hardware) has a down-side in that it originally assumed that files would rarely be transferred to another disk. While encoded audio file ids and a graphics cache are intended to work around this, they don't always work which can become a huge timewaster.
  2. Everything seems to have stopped over the past year which is not surprising. All things being equal, single core speed is a good indicator. What isn't equal are different generations of CPUs with varying floating-point performance.
  3. It's simply that the important numbers for what we do never seem to get published. Take a look at https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/pc-benchmark-tests https://www.facebook.com/dawbench
  4. DSP is all math. The only meaningful specification for DAW performance is the number of floating-point calculations per second available in real time. Core count and processor speed are not meaningful other than for rendering/bounce speed. Hopefully at some point people will start testing and publishing DSP calculation speed rather than rendering/bounce speed.
  5. Here's a link to my recent AES interview: https://www.aes-media.org/sections/pnw/pnwrecaps/2021/feb2021/index.htm
  6. Intel Xeon CPUs require ECC memory! My understanding is that memory errors are exceedingly rare today and ECC memory increases latency.
  7. My understanding is that Robin Lobel has always owned SpectraLayers and had a distribution deal with Sony. I suspect that deal was acquired with the other Sony software and when it expired, Lobel moved to Steinberg because Samplitude already has a spectral editor and Cuebase/Nuendo is by far the most widely used DAW.
  8. The only part of the media creation market that's growing is video and it's growing like the audio market was twenty-five years ago. Cakewalk was willing to embrace Microsoft's new technology ahead of others but I can't picture Microsoft having the slightest interest in any DAW. Apple acquired E-Magic and whatever Macromedia called Final Cut back when it looked like both Adobe and Avid were about to bail rather than embrace system NeXt.
  9. Sad to say, the lifetime updates will make it next to impossible for them to sell it. It's also very likely that they had been trying to sell it for some time. I've known a number of people who were successful audio developers and none of them made very much money other than a handful when they sold out to large corporations twenty years ago.
  10. That's how it works in Pro tools but it hadn't occurred to me it would be available in the Wave-Editing Plug-ins.
  11. I haven't tried that yet. It also didn't allow me to save so I think there may be some kind of permissions issue.
  12. Is there a way to also add iZotope RX to that menu? Sometimes it works better than Spectral Layers and vice-versa.
  13. I'm editing and mastering an album that was converted to 192 from DSD. I'm finding it is far less stressful to the computer compared to 96 than I expected.
  14. Gibson owns Tascam. I seriously doubt that they own Philips.
