Thanks Ian:
Are you using a laptop or a tower?

Make sure you buy them in the US and pay duty to Canada - don't pay the CRIA's so-called artist's levy.

Remember, it's a levy, not a tax. Canada Customs can't collect.

both, and with E-mu products for sound. You can get them for a great price on eBay. They have been making Pro DAC's forever and their talent has trickled down to very affordable gear and the packaged software is much fun for understanding audio.

Cheers,
Ian

Grant:
Which E Mu product would you recommend for Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 3? Also, is there a sound card that you would recommend. Cheers,
Loyd

The best I have tried are the HHB Gold or on a more modest budget the HHb silver. If you really care about your recordings and want them to last and be more scratch resistant. Then spending 2-4$ on a higher end disc could be worth it. I use them for re-mastering from dat tape or analog reel. Of course I don't know if I could warrent spending that much if I was just burning on a noisy computer. But if you have a professional stand alone burner like the new Tascam high def unit or any of the others like HHB, Sony, Yamaha etc... then maybe give them a try. Iv'e been using them for about 10 years and never had a problem, or even a skip. Pro audio and instrument shops will carry them, usually for home studio and mastering applications.

Wow Newmusic!
This opens up another intriguing angle. Right now I'm pursuing Grant's idea to use an E Mu product and Toby's idea to use MAM cd-r's. Have you tried either product?

Cheers,
Loyd

I haven't tried either product. Although I have been tempted to try computer burning more often. Just to make copies of rare cd's for friends.

My next purchase will probably be a cd duplicator. This is a specialized machine that somehow makes the cd copies sound better than the originals. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't heard it on my friends cost no object system. You can probably google it as there are some audio mag reviews. The inventor also promotes using his special black cd's as being the best sounding.

Hi Grant:

You are lucky to have the set-up that you do. As I travelled through the US, I stopped at several Guitar Centers who distribute the 1212. This product is no longer available, but it was recently cleared out at less than 70$ US, so I made an effort to find one in California, Oregon, and Washington. Strike out:( Do you ave any other suggestions?

Cheers,
Loyd

Hi Loyd, probably still get them on eBay, but this looks like the direction E-mu is heading with it:

i'll second HHB, I also use a stand alone HHB burner, i've got all my demos, out takes etc. on them, triple backed up... but I don't trust them any farther than I could throw the Ampex 456 masters

Hi Ian:

Very nice 8)

External is probably the best way to go, but I'll try e-bay and craigslist for internal "trial" version first.

Cheers,
Loyd

Blankmedia no longer carries MAM-A CD-R gold discs. I have only been able to find them in the States so far, at Mediasupply in PA:

http://www.mediasupply.com/mtc74lsgos-100.html

About US$1.20 a disc for a stack of 100, plus shipping. Would anybody like to share an order?


Did you order from Media Supply before?
