Tangential Cold Studios: Audio laptop
The idea to roll my own audio pc came to me a few years ago (1998 or so) but I didn't have the knowledge or experience with first class
audio applications and products (and a decided lack of funds) to do it.
Update: So it turns out that I still had a good bit to learn when it came to building
my own DAW. The system I built was very powerful. However, it was also VERY noisy. The two
AMD CPUs, and the case had a total of 7 fans. I had to leave the machine turned off most of the time.
I only turned it on when I went to make music. When I wanted to record something with a mic (as opposed to a line-in)
I had to use a long mic cable and go SOMEWHERE ELSE. I ran a cable to my daughter's bedroom once. Bottem line: I sold it.
- CPU: 14" Apple MacBook Pro. This has a DVI connection that lets
me run two monitors in 'cinema' mode so I have screen realestate. And it is Oh So Quiet.
- Ram: 1G
- Hard Disk: 80G
- Audio Interface: M-Audio's
This bad little boy makes using my laptop for audio possible. Great inputs. MIDI. Audio. Mic. All in one
small well built unit.
- Mixer: Mackie 1202 VLZ Pro $291. Nice all around unit to feed my soundcard that I bought off of EBAY. I figure that I can plug in my keyboard and microphone plus anything else up to the Mackie to feed the soundcard.
- Microphone: A classic work-horse SM-58.
- Microphone: AKG C1000S $200. In retrospect, this was probably not the best choice for my needs. I got it when I wanted a decent condensor mic but I didn't have phantom power. At the time I was going to go with a Soundblaster sound card. Once I made the decision to go with a better soundcard, I realized that I'd need a mixer to feed it. Once I had the mixer, I had the phantom power I needed. This mic, can work with or without phantom power. I'm sure it'll
still be worth it for field recordings though.
Had this on the PC, so I bought an upgrade and just shifted over to the mac
- Reason 2
Had version 1.0 for the PC, so when I got a mac, I got the 2.5 upgrade and again just shifted over.
Part of iLife, this and 4 other apps cost a whopping $50. This should do evering I was doing
with Sonic Foundry's ACID. That is, I tend to do my drum loops in stuff like this.
